Great Wolf Lodge: The Perfect Family Getaway

Disclosure: Our family was hosted for a weekend at Great Wolf Lodge. All opinions are our own. Every night before bed, my four year old asks me, “Can we go to Great Wolf Lodge tomorrow?” And I promise you, she is dead serious. It has been a few months since we spent the weekend away […]

The Untold Breastfeeding Story

0

  As I walked into the hospital conference room, I felt very out of place. These other women had been to this breastfeeding support group meeting before, they had likely come regularly. I knew my problem was different from theirs, and I felt self-conscious and guilty for that. Nevertheless, I hopped in line behind the […]

When Breastfeeding Hurts: How I Pushed for Answers and Found Help

The first latch hurt so did the next one, and the one after that. I was told it since I was a first-time mom it might be uncomfortable but this was downright painful! Within a few days, we were told my son lost too much weight so we immediately met with a lactation consultant who […]

To the Nurse That Met Me in the Middle

There I was, 48 hours in with baby number three. I’d been down this road twice before, yet somehow, the chemical imbalance of postpartum hormones had knocked me right off my high horse once again. I sat there in my hospital bed holding my little miracle, fresh off of a 30-hour stay in the NICU. […]

Five Ways a Mom of Multiple Multiples Simplifies Daily Life

In Light of Twins Days which takes place over the first full weekend in August, this year being August 7-9, and as a mom of multiple multiples, I thought I would share some of the organizational things I do to keep our household – which consists of two sets of twins, plus one crazy singleton, […]

Black Moms and Breastfeeding – Is There Room for Me?

Maternal mortality rates are highest among Black women and have recently been highlighted in the news and on social media by celebrities like Amy Schumer after the death of 26-year-old Sha-Asia Washington in New York.

National Book Lovers Day: A Parenting Book Review

The book “How to Stop Losing Your Sh*t with Your Kids: A Practical Guide to Becoming a Calmer, Happier Parent” by Carla Naumburg came into my life at a time when I needed it most. In the last year, I traded one type of stress for another, going from working full-time to being a full-time […]

You Know You’re a Breastfeeding Mom If…

I breastfed my first baby until he was 15 months, only stopping because I lost my milk during my second pregnancy. I’m currently still breastfeeding my second son. I feel like I’ve experienced it all, from tongue and lip ties to cluster feeding for seemingly endless periods of time to babies ripping open my shirt […]

Five Ways to Jumpstart Your Positivity and Optimism

The Need to Wean

I decided to wean at 2:00 AM. At 1:00 AM, I woke up in a fit of chills; blankets pulled tight around me while the stabbing pain of the fourth bout of mastitis ripped through my chest. It came out of nowhere. Granted, I sleep oddly and often wake up on my stomach with a […]

I Am Not the Fun Mom and I Don’t Care

There are two kinds of moms in this world, the fun ones, and the not fun ones. A few weeks ago I came to the realization that I am of the latter. Let me explain. Fun moms are the ones where it’s like freakin summer camp with them all the livelong day. They make slime, […]
