Guest Post: When Breast Isn't Best

Written By: Jamie, Guest Blogger

Throughout my entire pregnancy I had always assumed that I would breastfeed, formula never entered my mind.  Breastfeeding is a natural thing, so it can’t be that hard….right?  Oh how wrong I was.

My son Kain was born happy and healthy on his due date in March.  We immediately did skin to skin and started the breastfeeding process.  During this time the nurse noticed that he was severely tongue tied, meaning the piece of skin that holds his tongue to the bottom of his mouth was very close to the tip of his tongue.  This can cause many different issues with breastfeeding and speech as he would develop.  Luckily since the nurse noticed it so quickly the doctor was able to go in and snip this piece of skin before he was even 24 hours old.  After this it took Kain a while to adjust to the new movement of his tongue, but it would not cause any long term affects.

A Day in the Life of This Blogger (aka Working Mom)

Get ready to laugh at how unproductive my days are during this "Day in the Life of This Blogger (aka Working Mom). We'll go based on a Tuesday when M has preschool:

6:30am - Woken by almost 3 year old. Take him back to his room and set him up with "morning books" in his bed. Try to go back to sleep.

2014 Holiday Wish List - Toddler Edition

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

It's truly hard to believe that the *gulp* holiday season is already here! Believe it or not, I've already gotten started on our Christmas shopping, thanks to our Citrus Lane (ref link) subscription anyway! I started setting items from his Citrus Lane boxes aside back in June. Not everything, but usually one toy/book item from the box was stashed away for later. Since his birthday is only 2 weeks after Christmas, I do need to get an early start and try to save money where possible. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are coming up in 2 short weeks, so it's really starting to be crunch time to get everything done!
