You showed me my power

It was 2:30am when I was woken by an incredibly loud pop sound, so loud that I thought my two year old (sleeping next to me) had broken a bone. I quietly looked her up and down, but nothing was wrong. I realized, oh… this is happening, my water must have broken, and stood up slowly…

Foremilk and Hindmilk

Okay so let’s talk how amazing breastmilk is. Or one of the many ways that is…

Here is a fun lesson in the wonders of breastmilk: I had been pumping 10oz in the morning and 10oz at night to donate. I decided to stop the morning pump session and pumped my nightly one a bit early because I was so crazy engorged.

In the photo above, check out the right side milk. It is the first milk pumped from my right breast. It is ALL foremilk from the pumping session I missed. Note how BLUE it is!!!!

Eczema (insert swear word here)

I am a firm believer that 90% of eczema comes from food intolerances or allergies. Now I know I am not a doctor; and I will never claim to be, but I do believe that eczema can be cured “most” of the time just by some tweaking of a diet.

So many times people have come to me with eczema that just will NOT go away and we check out their diet, or their child’s diet, and within a few days of removing the culprit food… BOOM! It’s gone.
