A Saturday well spent brings a week of content. 6 days before Black Friday, I get a cold, and our son gets hand foot and mouth. Shoutout to my hubby for watching the kids this afternoon so I could get a little horse therapy in. Bring on the craziest week of the year.
Perfection @ericamanny.doula ! This is what delayed or optimal cord clamping can look like - not cutting the umbilical cord from the placenta at all...at least until the picture. They are naturally attached for many reasons essential for the short and long term health of babies; it behooves each maternity care provider and each expectant family to research and not intervene in the normal process of childbirth, which is far more intelligent than any of us. When all is well, please do not disturb. #DelayedCordClamping#HealthyBaby
Happy Saturday! 💛 . . So lately Iv been concerned about my supply mainly because I’m pumping less than before but I know your milk matures around 8-10 weeks so my baby determines how much he needs. I did get used to having sooo much though that I could express a bottle and build up a small freezer supply. 🤣 Now it seems to have settled and I thought I was running out! So I went down to the chemist and bought a breastfeeding fenugreek support just in case. Has anyone else used one? But he’s happy, lots of wet nappies and as we know putting on weight 👏🏼 My mum mind goes in overdrive sometimes! . . I pump because I like to give him one bottle a night before his big sleep. I know how much he’s getting and also someone else can give him a bottle if a migraine strikes me. For us it works. I used to be able to pump it out in one session but now it takes two 🙄 . . It can be such a guessing game when it comes to breastfeeding! Is he getting enough, is he getting too much, is he fussing at the breast because he’s hungry or full or tired 🤣 But I’m taking it a day at a time, I would love to breastfeed him for as long as I can because I adore that time we have together, even when it’s 4am and it’s just him and me and Dad snoring 😆 . . Anyone else love those early morning feeds? I think I do more now because he’s growing so quick and we won’t have that time forever ☹️ . .

It's so funny that even though I am the heaviest I have ever been, my bum, thighs, back and ofcourse bump are all gaining inches, I'm jiggly in places I wasn't jiggly before 🙈 but I don't know that I've ever felt Better, the female body Is such an amazing thing and I have never appreciated mine more, even with all of its new lumps and bumps 😂😂#bodyconfidence#pregnant#pregnancy#firstbaby
