Every time I use a breast pump, I get a clogged duct

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Saturday, January 24, 2015,
Now I remember why I stopped pumping milk into a bottle to feed my son. Every time I use a breast pump, I get a clogged duct hours later. It's just not made for me. After I gave birth to my son, I would pump every 3-4 hours so that I could keep my supply up and my husband can participate in feeding him too. Around 5 weeks, I got mastitis and had to go to the hospital because I had a 103 degree fever. 

Ever since the mastitis incident, they encouraged me to directly nurse my son so that it will...

My son is 11 months old with 6 teeth and I am still breastfeeding

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Wednesday, January 14, 2015,
I can't believe I have been able to breastfeed my son for this long. It is the best gift. The benefits of his own mother's milk is undeniable. Because it has antibodies (unlike formula), my son's immune system is great and he hasn't gotten really sick yet! Knock on wood! Also, because mother's milk is organic, it's easy on his stomach and easily digestible. I can list about 10 more benefits but then this will really drag on. Today I am celebrating 11 months of being able to breastfeed my son....

View of downtown Charlotte from our Hyatt Place City Center hotel room

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, January 13, 2015,
Last month, we stayed at the Hyatt Place City Center in downtown Charlotte, NC for a night and it was a really great hotel. I was really impressed with its location and the rooftop restaurant in the building. This seems to be a higher end Hyatt Place, very comparable to a Hyatt Regency. I recommend staying here if you're looking for a place to stay with luxury in downtown Charlotte. It is also less than a mile from the Bank of America Stadium where the Carolina Panthers play football. The vie...

My baby son had eczema and I've tried 5 different creams but only 1 works

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, January 8, 2015,
When my son was about a couple of months old, he started getting eczema around his arms and legs. I was really worried that he was allergic to our dog. It was something I was very suspicious of because I am allergic to cats and some dogs. 

He was born during the winter in South Carolina so his skin got really dry from the heater in our room and the cold outside. At the time, the only lotion I used was Johnson's baby lotion and after I would apply it on his skin, it would get so red. I was so s...

Divergent movie makes me feel proud to have tattoos

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, January 8, 2015,
Recently, I've read all three Divergent books (Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant) within a span of 6 days! I couldn't stop reading. They were so well written. 

You can't help but think during the whole time how this applies to our current society with job roles. Some people are computer programmers while others are nurses, etc. 

I particularly had a great pull towards the dauntless factor. I think many people reading the books would want to too. I like to think myself as brave. It also makes m...
