From Breast To Formula: My Journey With Allergies and Sensitivities

From Breast To Formula dealing with allergies and sensitivities 640x426 From Breast To Formula: My Journey With Allergies and Sensitivities

Let me get real with you all right now. It’s something we love about our jobs here at Simply Real Moms…when we have an issue, we talk about it. We get it off of our chests in hopes that another mother won’t feel the way we did because she read this and was prepared for whatever it is we’re sharing about.

Today I want to talk about pride. Pride as a mother.

I gave birth to my second son after a long list of little problems. Nothing ever life threatening or bad but just annoying or painful problems. He was gorgeous, but from the first time I nursed him I knew something was different. I had nursed my first son with no issues (other than supply problems when I went on birth control) for 12 months. Seriously. No issues. So when my second latched on and I was in pain I figured that maybe I was due a little issue here and there since I had it so easy before! [Read more...]

Gia Breastfeeding Pillow By Dr. Browns

Let’s talk about a feeding staple nowadays: the nursing pillow. Whether you are breastfeeding or formula feeding, having the perfect pillow to position your baby comfortably just makes feeding a better experience. I have been feeding babies for a long time-first as a nanny, now as a mom and I have been all about making sure that not only are you using a nursing pillow for comfort, but also making sure to position the baby at an angle with their head raised for better digestion and to reduce reflux. Well wouldn’t you know it, Dr. Browns (who makes the most awesome bottles and more!) has fixed the problem I had of using an extra pillow or manuvering my legs to make sure the pillow kept baby in the best feeding position-the Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow.
