the melodramatic mouse is now mellomom
This is my 2nd nursing pillow from MBF. That’s how much I loved it! The 1st one (Read: My Verdict) was Nate’s and we used it right until we weaned him — 18 months 4 days! — when I was pregnant with Eli. We got a new pillow case to give it a new look [...]
Hear ye! Hear ye! Calling all amazing Nursing Mommies out there. Come support this incredible cause this September and help make a change of how important breastfeeding is for our babies. If you missed it last year, this is your chance! What is this? 5-minute flash mob to celebrate breastfeeding (Milksharing Week, The Breastfeeding Charter [...]
If you haven’t already self experienced this, I want to point out that online shopping is very addictive and anybody could fall prey — me me me — because it is just too darn convenient. See-Click-Buy-Pay. After that all you need to do is Wait. And that’s how this post came to be *winks* I [...]
The title for this post is a bit ironic given that the cure to this problem is milk itself. It’s not just any milk, but breastmilk to be exact. The liquid gold that does just about everything good for our baby, and even us adults *thumbs up* Did you know that breastmilk contains all these [...]
What is it? Iron is a mineral that makes hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout our body. Why is it important? Our blood increases 50% when we are pregnant. So we need more iron to make more hemoglobin for all the extra blood to carry oxygen. We also need extra [...]
I was introduced to this delicious herbal tea during our HypnoBirthing class. One of the handouts spelled out the many benefits of raspberry leaves for expecting mothers and I thought, Why Not? since I’ll be going to Justlife, so I grabbed a bag on the way. The leaves came loose, so I used disposable tea [...]
Does the thought of drinking oil makes you go yuck? That’s exactly how I feel — even if I’m not pregnant — on any given day. But after researching on its uber goodness, how could I refuse? Especially when it is the healthiest oil in the world! *wahh* I finally bought a bottle of organic [...]
I didn’t expect to wean Nate. I had ideally planned to let him outgrow the need on his own naturally. If I wasn’t pregnant, I know I would still be breastfeeding. I started by reducing 1 feed at a time — he was still having 3 — when I was 6 weeks pregnant. It was [...]
We are finally at this stage of researching for the “right” formula milk. Although I am still breastfeeding 3-4x and expressing 1x a day, I know my supply is quickly depleting and I need to hurry up to introduce cow’s milk to Nate before he rejects the taste totally. The boy doesn’t like liquids other [...]
This is our 13th month! For half of that time, Natey was fully breastfed before he started his solids at 6mo. For 6 months, he survived on nothing — except that few weeks of supplement *boo* — but his Mommy’s milk *beams* In the beginning 2 cells became one, he grew and fed within me [...]
