 Following My Heart: Nursing Two Children

following my heart nursing two children

When my 25 month old daughter came flitting through the hospital room door with my husband, I had no idea how she would react to her tiny, four-hour-old brother. During my entire pregnancy, I had been wondering anxiously how the first few days would go, and along those lines, how breastfeeding two children would be. I wondered if I was cut out for it and how we would manage.

The Root Of Mommy Wars: A SAHM’s Perspective

Mommy Wars seem to be all the rage lately. The passive aggressive battle between stay-at-home moms and moms who work out of the home litters our Facebook feeds with blog posts whose “in-your-face” titles beg for our camaraderie in the form of “likes.” SAHMs want to convince their working friends that they have it so much better, while moms who work out of the home fire back that they have two 24 hour jobs to balance instead of just one. The truth of the matter is none of it is easy.

A Miracle After Two Tragedies

A miracle after two tragedies

I was 8 months pregnant with our first son when I went to a regular pregnancy check up and they couldn’t find his heartbeat. I was devastated and didn’t understand why this was happening to us. We had done everything we were supposed to and had already named him. Our doctor gave us the option to be put into labor that day or wait until my body put itself into labor. I chose to go in that day and have our son.

I Was Told It Sometimes Happens With Twins

On my way home from that last doctor’s appointment I saw the first bald eagle I have ever seen in New England. It was circling above the Richmond exit as I got off the highway. Strangers were beginning to notice and comment on my belly. We had begun receiving gifts and cards for the baby shower and had them piled together in the living room. Tyler was almost finished painting the nursery and I was beginning to wash baby clothes so we could hang them in the closet. I felt like little squiggly fish were swimming in my belly.

Breast is Best, Except when It’s not

Breast-is-best-except-when-its-not

When you have a baby these days, particularly if you live in Portland, Maine (or any other “progressive” city) you are overwhelmingly pressured into breastfeeding. And don’t get me wrong – it’s great that breastfeeding is now the recommended way to feed baby, and that doctors and parents alike are beginning (or continuing) to realize its incredible benefits. However, in a well-intentioned attempt to promote the wonders of breastfeeding, it seems other choices (i.e. formula) have been demonized. And that’s wrong. And here’s why.
