To Wean or Not to Wean…

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve blogged! The month of April was kind of crazy and I kept getting different health problems, and then my in-laws were in town, and then when they left, I managed to get sick again! (or maybe it’s allergies.. who knows… but whatever it is, which I still have, it sucks!) But anyhow, I’ve been meaning to write about weaning, so here it finally is! The one-year mark was […]

Pumping and Donating Breastmilk

You’re probably wondering why the photo above is related to breastmilk, but my logic is… that photo was from her 1 year birthday, and that’s when I started to wean, and thus it has everything to do with breastmilk! :p Anyways… A few months ago, I wrote about how I felt like my milk supply was dropping, to the point where A was not getting enough milk from me… Starting around 6.5 months, when A […]

What happens when milk supply drops.

“Where’s the milk?!” – Baby A. These past few weeks have been emotionally pretty taxing on me. When A started refusing to drink for the bottle around 3- 4 months, I was not too worried about it since I didn’t have grand plans to be away from her for long periods of time.

The road to breastfeeding…

Early on in my pregnancy I remember dreading breastfeeding more than I dreaded the labor and delivery. Everyone said that labor is bad and pushing is hard, but it has an end to it, but breastfeeding is a seemingly unending painful experience. I just assumed this meant it would hurt x 43010392. Fast-forward to right after A was born and I had my first breastfeeding experience, and I remember thinking, “Oh! Maybe A is a […]
