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....

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...

10 simple things that is now a luxury for a breastfeeding mother

It seems like nowadays, breastfeeding and pumping are consuming most of my time. Ever since I had mastitis (see older blog post), I have been religiously pumping every 3-5 hours (depending on how much my son fed from my breasts) so that I don't get too engorged and feel pain again. Between diaper changes, feeding, comforting the baby when it's fussy time, bath time and comforting him to sleep, pumping is my #1 priority for any free time I have. Here are the things I miss since giving birth to...

I've come to realized that Breastfeeding is a full time job

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Saturday, March 29, 2014,
One side of one of my breasts is extremely plugged right now and it is very hard in this area. I feel at least 5 bumps in there so my ducts in that area are plugged. I have no idea how to unplug it and I've been sitting with my pump to try to empty that breast the for the last hour. My baby is napping right now so I can't directly feed him at the moment because it's a much needed rest for him. I've come to the conclusion that breastfeeding is a full time job in itself (in order to make sure w...

Feeling like I was sexual abused by my lactation consultant

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Saturday, February 22, 2014, In : Motherhood 
While I was pregnant with my son, I decided that I was going to breastfeed instead of using formula since so many medical professionals highly encouraged it. When my son was born, he latched onto my breasts right away and I felt like we had a good thing going on. On the second day, I got worried because his lips were getting really dry and that made me think I was not producing enough liquids from my breasts. We decided to see a lactation consultant the next day.

I'm not sure if it's because o...
