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....

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...

Eating ice cream while nursing

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, December 16, 2014,
I've been craving a lot of ice cream lately. I have mint chocolate chip from Edy's and coffee flavor from Prestige in the freezer right now. Usually I don't eat much ice cream. Maybe only when I am out at the mall or at a restaurant on a rare occasion. However, lately I've been craving it and I wonder if it's my body telling me that I need more fat content to feed the baby?

My baby son is now 10 months old and I am still breastfeeding. He's been thinning out in the last couple of months becaus...

Things you gladfully gave up after giving birth to a baby

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Wednesday, May 14, 2014, In : Motherhood 
My newborn is no longer a newborn now that he is 3 months old so I've been doing some reflecting. A lot has changed about me, from my hair to my way of thinking. I put him first before my needs and I am glad to do it. I just want him to grow up happy and strong. Here are some obvious things I gave up after giving birth to a baby, and these are things many moms have done:

  • I no longer have long hair. I now understand why so many moms get a bob after giving birth. My baby is getting to the point ...

My 3 month old baby pulls his ear so much, it tears

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, May 13, 2014, In : Motherhood 
My 3 month old baby has been pulling his ears a lot whenever he gets sleepy. I'm so worried. It just started to tear a little. I would put neosporin on it and hope it would heal. I've been trying to get him to not tug on it as much when he gets sleepy by covering his ear with my hand when he reaches for it. We were going to go to the doctor to get it looked but I had a feeling that most likely, he will just say to "leave it alone". It's just like a millimeter tear on the top. 

I realize that b...

My husband gives me an Easter basket every year but this one sings Bieber!

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, May 8, 2014,
Ever since I met my husband in 2010, he's given me an Easter basket every year filled with candy. This year he topped it off with an Easter chick with bunny ears. It's animated and sings one of my pop star's famous song: "baby baby". Yes, I am a Beiber fan. I like his music even though I don't like his personality. It's amazing that my husband found an animated stuff animal that did this. Check it out believe. It's cute!

Using Vitamin E Oil to help with baby's dried eyelids and rubbing

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Thursday, April 24, 2014, In : Motherhood 
My newborn is 2 months and 3 weeks old and he has been consistently rubbing his eyelids. He rubs his left one more than his right so his left one is really swollen and red. It doesn't look as bad if he doesn't rub it for awhile but then it gets swollen again once he rubs it. I've tried putting petroleum jelly on his eyelids to see if that helps heal it faster but I think his constant rubbing is preventing it from getting better. 

This morning I tried something different and swaddled him while ...

Extremely annoyed by my dog now that I have a newborn

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Tuesday, April 1, 2014,
I feel guilty for feeling this way but it's the truth. I am extremely annoyed by my dog now. It started when I was pregnant. I would get really mad when he jumps on my belly because I was afraid he'll knock me over or hit too hard on the fetus. Even when I tell him no, he would do it so it got to the point where I had to become unfriendly to him so he doesn't try to do that to me when when I get home. That means I don't pet him anymore or play with him. Well, it worked while I was pregnant an...

Baby moving inside of you is like growing an alien

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Monday, November 4, 2013, In : pregnancy 
Ever since the baby started moving inside of my stomach around 4 months, I started thinking that maybe there isn't enough room for him in there. 

Now that I am at 5.5 months, I can feel the baby moving constantly. And recently when I was in one of my post-licensing class for real estate, I would see a ripple across my belly as I was sitting in class. It was a bit freaky but I guess the baby was bored. Sitting down in class for 8 hours isn't that fun and I'm usually moving about when I am at ho...
