The 5 Best Milk Supply Boosters for Richer Milk

Breast milk production is so important because as a breastfeeding mama, that’s how your baby is surviving! We worry about the amount they are getting, the nutrients we are providing, and if we are producing enough to keep them full and happy. With my first baby, I researched everything on milk production, and I even started working on my milk supply before my baby arrived. I found so much information, as well as some products that actually work really well, I decided to write the ultimate guide to milk boosters. The one I wish I could’ve read when I was 9 months pregnant and obsessing about breastfeeding. These milk supply helpers are great for encouraging a rich milk because they offer your body a lot of nutrients. I am going to go over teas, cookies, protein powders, herbs and supplements to hopefully help you choose the best milk boosting helper…

Protein Powder Recipes For Milk Supply and Postpartum Weight Loss

Protein powder is one of the biggest tools I use for postpartum weight loss, as well as keeping up my milk supply. Lots of mamas worry that when they start losing weight, they will lose your milk supply. But, that’s not true. Your body wants to use the stored calories and nutrients in our fat cells to produce milk, and if you continue to supply your body with great nutrients, your body will have everything it needs to produce lots of milk. I’ve become a pro at breastfeeding, and I am just weaning my third baby now. If you need to increase your milk supply, check out these 5 foods (which also help with weight loss!), and save this post for later. It’s all the tips and tricks my sister and I (she pumped and nursed twins over a year while working part time!!) have learned. Moving into protein powder…

5 Genius Ways To Escape The Holiday Stress + Rejuvenate

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MyHolidayEscape #CollectiveBias Holidays can be so joyous, yet so stressful. For me, I like to have some peace and quiet, where I can think and process my day. I love to chat, have fun and enjoy my family and friends, but I also need that quiet space to desensitize myself. When you are a guest at someone else’s house, it’s super difficult to do that because you may not even have your own guest room. Here are some genius ways to escape the crazy and rejuvenate yourself. 1. Take A “Nap”: You can always tell your guests or others that you need a nap. This is where I actually escape with a magazine, like PEOPLE® magazine (my favorite!!), and veg out a minute. No one will bother you if they think you are…

Why You Need A Kids Thanksgiving Table This year

I have lots of memories of Thanksgiving as a child, where we would cozy up on the floor, picnic style near the adults table. It was so fun and comfortable to have our own space, where my cousins and I could laugh and play/eat. The adults had their own space for all that adult talk we weren’t interested in. Because I have such fond memories of our Thanksgiving picnic, I am completely sold on the tradition for my children, and I put together my own kids table for them this year, complete with a full-on coloring table cloth. I NEED them to stay busy for as long as possible, and being that they are 4.5, 3 and 1, I might get 15 minutes out of the whole thing, but sometimes that 15 minutes feels like an hour. First off, a kids table for Thanksgiving is a great place the kids…

All opinions are mine alone. #SamsungTargetTech #CollectiveBias Capturing family photos is a lot of work, I’m not going to tell you it’s going to be easy. But, you can totally get a beautiful photo of your whole family, if you take time and patience to do it. It is the holiday season, and we all want to send out pretty cards right? This is the perfect tutorial for the holiday season! You’ll find a cute card I made for free after the tips on Canva. Super simple, and no photographer needed! I haven’t used a photographer in a few years now because I’ve been taking our photos, and the messy, candidness of the capture is actually something I like. Not everyone is looking, or someone is making a very silly face, but that’s real life for us. I…

A Heart-Warming Way To Have Your Kids Give Back This Year

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and The Coca-Cola™ Company. All opinions are mine alone. #LayerOnLove #CollectiveBias My kids are very oblivious to those who are in need. We are so blessed, so they don’t understand the feelings of being hungry or cold, despite what I’ve tried to explain to them. I think its super important to get your kids involved in giving back this time of year, to help them understand what it means to help those in need. My children are finally old enough to be able to participate in activities and actually understand what we are doing, and I have partnered with the Coca-Cola™ at Walmart’s “Layer On Love” program. This is a simple program for my kids to understand and get behind. They know what it means to be cold, and that some children don’t have warm jackets! I talked to my children…

The Ultimate Free Nutrition Plan To Slim Down Fast & Lose The Baby Weight

Let’s be real. Losing weight is so hard because it happens to slowly. There isn’t the immediate gratification of losing a pound in a couple minutes, so it is extremely difficult to stick to a plan.

I have a fabulous, free nutrition plan to help you get rid of the extra weight and start feeling your best. Remember, I am not a doctor or nutritionist, I am just a fitness enthusiast and mama of three boys, who’s lost the baby weight three times now.

Tips To Help Daddy Bond With A Breastfeeding Baby

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SimplyBonding #CollectiveBias Breastfeeding a baby is such a special bond. Feeding a baby in general creates an important bond of trust and love, that I feel so blessed to have experienced now with three little ones. I am still breastfeeding my 10-month old baby, and I think it’s important not to leave Daddy out on all this special bonding time. For first-time parents, it can be difficult to allow daddy an opportunity to bond with the baby. I never had my husband do the middle-of-the-night feedings because he had to work. I just reasoned that only one of us should be in a zombie-like state, and we don’t need him functioning half awake while working, so these ideas are all great ways to have daddy bond with the baby, without having him wake…
