The use of dummies is a topic that comes up regularly.
Some prefer to use so baby doesn’t thumb suck. Some use to sooth between feeds.
There are some thoughts that using dummies may not be a good thing.
They can impact on teeth development.
They can impact upon breastfeeding as feeding cues can be missed. (This can also be true with bottle feeding)
They can be difficult to get rid of.
Research has shown that abrupt removal of a dummy could increase risk of SIDS. You may have seen this reported as “dummy use reduces SIDS risk”. It’s always interesting how study results can be interpreted, especially when funded controversially.

Want to spike your breastmilk supply? Especially when you notice a sudden drop and want to get it back up...Then you should try Power Pumping.
Simply put, Power Pumping is expressing breastmilk in a series of 10-20 minutes
i.e you pump for 20 minutes, take a break for 10 minutes, pump for 10 minutes, break for 10 minutes and pump for another 10 minutes, and so on...
It mimics the short & frequent feeding of a baby during a growth spurt, which causes your body to make more breastmilk.

Pregnancy and birth is hard on the body. Not only did I have high blood pressure and the start of preeclampsia, I also had gestational diabetes and then recently PUPPS. PUPPS caused my stretch marks on my stomach to become red and unbearably itchy. It then spread as a rash and hives under my arms, my bum, thighs, etc. I then developed blisters on my hands and feet as a secondary reaction. My body also swelled up like a balloon and it’s slowly returning to normal. My belly is ugh, my body is a exhausted I’m literally sick (sore throat, fatigue, lost my voice, coughing, etc). My boobs kill and I can’t seem to get breastfeeding right. But even with all of this suffering I have the best gift Instagram all, my baby boy. I am also so thankful for my husband who is extremely supportive and who makes me feel so beautiful even with all of this going on. #pupps#gestationaldiabetes#postpartumbody#postpartum#breastfeeding

Uykusuz anneler burada mı?
Bu yazım tam sizlik✍🏻💕 "UYKU ARKADAŞI" NEDİR ?
İngilizcesi “security blanket” olan uyku arkadaşları, bebeğin yalnızlık duygusunu azaltarak kendi kendine uykuya dalmasını kolaylaştırır. Ayrıca bebek uykusu bölünüp uyandığında güven hissettiren uyku arkadaşını görür. Kendini güvende hisseden bebek daha rahat bir şekildede yeniden uykuya dalar.
Evinizdeki oyuncaklardan uyku arkadaşı yapabilirsiniz. Bir battaniye veya mendil bile uyku arkadaşı olabilir. Önemli olan çocuğunuzun bu nesneyi benimsemesidir.
Uyku arkadaşı seçerken çocuğunuzun güvenliği için dikkat etmeniz gereken bazı önemli noktalar bulunmakta. Örneğin boncuktan gözler gibi bebeğin koparıp yutabileceği, sivri kenarlarıyla zarar verebileceği, fazla büyük ve ağır olup çocuğun nefes almasını engelleyebilecek nesneleri uyku arkadaşı olarak kullanmamalısınız.
Merak ettikleriniz ve sormak istedikleriniz için lütfen bize DMden ulaşın🤰🏻 @bebekle_hayat 🤱🏻💕
Breastfeeding part two: the first 2 weeks. It’s a long one so I’ve added it to my stories and will make a highlight so you can refer back to it. Those first couple of weeks were hard and I experienced some heavy emotions and anxiety. All hormonal of course, and even though I knew that at the time, I still struggled and thought that this would be my mindset for a long time. Breastfeeding is a hormonal thing and is natural to feel this way. Let me know if you’ve read the whole thing in my stories by dropping a 🍼 emoji in the comments below! #breastfeeding#breastfeedingjourney#thefirstfortnight#hormones#maternalmentalhealth#babythoughts#mummyblogger

“just walked into one of those airport lactation pods in laguardia and found it was covered with post-it messages from other moms. all of a sudden i felt flooded - the intensity of new motherhood, the stress of running a business i never thought would grow this fast - and the pressure i put on myself to do it all perfectly. the notes were sappy but they were the only things i needed to read in that moment. “you are enough” “it gets better” “feel proud of yourself for what you’ve created.” those simple messages of encouragement and the recognition that so many have been through this before made me feel less alone. and the gratitude these women expressed for having a pod - a little, modest pod - in the sea of commerce and throngs of business travelers made me remember why i care so much about what i’ve created, and why it’s so important women have spaces to contain all this shit we do and feel in our lives that no one ever sees.”
Breastfeeding is something every new and expecting mother thinks about...a lot.
I am preparing for baby number 3 and even after breastfeeding two babies full time, I still think about preparing for my breastfeeding journey.

Our Christmas Card this year. 😂 Totally kidding, of course. At first when I read this, I bursted out laughing. You know the kind of laughter you can't contain? And the more I thought about it, the harder I laughed. Then I actually got it up on the letterboard ... and the last thing I wanted was to sound mean. Like the kind of mom that makes her children only out to be mischievous, little monsters. Yes, it's fun to joke about how my kids are crazy and lawless, but they are also the complete lights of my life and never fail to teach me the purest form of love. So. Let me take a moment to point out how dearly I adore my three, little angels. Christmas is a time of joy and laughter.. and I would obviously never in a million years do this. My boys are far too precious. But, the thought of it is pretty funny. And truth be told, there are definitely those moments in our house during the holidays when my head wants to explode because my boys are sucking the joy out of Christmas. Whether they are fighting, crying, whining or complaining. But, in spite of the chaos, these little dudes make my world go round, and my holidays wouldn't be the same without the complete and utter mayhem. And one day they won't. ❤️ So, cheers to our little ones and our ability to love them 💯 through their furor. ❤️🎅🏻

Reposting this from April because I love it so much.
From Brittany (@britty_spatty):
"So often people ask if I'm breastfeeding, and I feel like I have to give them a whole explanation and EP lesson. But, the answer is yes. I breastfeed. It's not what most people picture, but it's beautiful and it keeps my little guy healthy and growing."
Thanks again Brittany!
