Ladies please show this to your men and share the benefits of skin to skin bonding for both baby and dad with them! I want all men to get to have this moment with their babies! When I needed to use the restroom and handed my baby over to my husband, my midwife told him to take his shirt off for some skin to skin to keep baby warm and it's one of my favorite pictures that I have of him! ❤️ (📷 @sashablaneyphotography )
Remember these mamas who had their double rainbow babies 3 days apart (episode 161)?! Since @theralogix is having a buy one get one free deal on their Lactation One postnatal supplement during World Breastfeeding Month (SUCH a good deal!!), Viviana wanted to share some of her postpartum experience today and how Lactation One is helping her feel less depleted as she cares for their @moderndaytwins! Get your BOGO Lactation One supplements via my profile link and read Viviana's experience below! Comment with some of your self-care tips for postpartum! ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Feeding babies, chillin' with babies, just another day in the life. I've been feeling incredibly depleted because womanhood just bleeds you dry (literally and figuratively) and have been trying to take better care of myself. When I gave birth I was under the impression that I could finally stop taking vitamins but boy was I wrong! Exhaustion started to feel natural until my cycle returned and I hit rock bottom. That's when it dawned on me that my body is doing incredible work nursing twins and I needed to fuel myself with vitamins again. What a difference it has made!
This surrogate birth is magic and love! 📷@birthstories.by.meaganadams ・・・ The past 48 hours of my life have been some of the most emotional Ive ever experienced. Every birth is an honour. Each time I am grateful. I am in awe of what women are capable of, despite the fact that Ive seen it first hand 4 times. There is NOTHING like watching a woman, persevere and trust her body to deliver a baby, that she will not mother. I am forever in love with Angie, and the men who's lives she changed by making them Daddies. I don't know how I am not going to share every single image from this birth. Surrogacy is life giving.
This is my sweet friend's baby that I mentioned on Tuesday's episode when I was talking to the @munchkininc LATCH specialist. I watched her for my friend recently and we used this munchkin bottle and she didn't have any issues with spit up even though her mom said that she typically spits up after every bottle! Be sure to listen to the episode to hear all of the innovative aspects to this bottle and why it's so great for breastfed babies transitioning back-and-forth from breast to bottle! #partner #munchkinmoments
We forget how tiny their little heads are when first learning to breastfeed! ✨ Caitlin Shrum lives in the Bay Area, California with her husband, Andrew, and their son, Cooper (2). Her first birth caught her by surprise as she found herself in an emergency c-section situation. She quickly realized her experience wasn’t normal and has spent the past two years educating herself in order to set up her future births for success, and has found within herself a passion for the birth space and maternal care. In this episode, she walks us through her pregnancy and childbirth experience and how she has taken that experience and is channeling it into education and learning for herself and hopefully others down the line.
