Who says mamas can’t do it all? They're the ultimate multitaskers! 🤱✨ We understand how much breastfeeding matters, therefore we provide breast pumps covered by insurance that make breastfeeding easier, convenient and more comfortable. That way you have one less thing to worry about. 💛 #PumpsForMom . . . . . #Breastfeeding #BreastfedBaby #BreastfedToddler #BreastfeedingJourney #MotherhoodRising #BestOfMom #BreastIsBest #BreastPump #StopDropAndMom #BreastfeedingIsBeautiful #PumpingMom #Breastfed #BreastfedBabies #BreastfeedingMom #BreastfeedingMama #Multitasker #Multitasking #JustMomLife #MotherhoodThroughIG #LifeWithLittles #NewMama #DailyMotherhood #Beyond_Motherhood #TheEveryMom #NormalizeBreastfeeding #UnitedInMotherhood #MomBlogger #MamahoodInSquares #B1WithMoms
I don’t want to scare anyone away from breastfeeding. But I do think we need to be honest about what is happening. Most moms are underprepared for what’s it’s going to take to get breastfeeding going well. Knowing the benefits of human milk can be great motivation to breastfeed, but it’s not going to help you learn how to breastfeed effectively or overcome challenges. Breastfeeding is natural, but it’s only instinctual for the baby, not the mom. What I mean by that is babies are born with primitive reflexes designed to get them to breastfeed. Mothers don’t have that. Unfortunately, breastfeeding is rarely easy. That isn’t a reason to avoid it altogether, but it IS a reason to seek the support, education, and mindset you need to make it work. Like my client Dulcinea described so well, breastfeeding can be very hard in the beginning, but once you get proper support, things can get better quickly: “I was at my wit's end having suffered for over a month with painful breastfeeding. I was taking OTC pain meds but knew I couldn't keep doing that. My goal was to breastfeed for a year but realized I wouldn't make it without help. I found Jacqueline on Yelp and was able to schedule with her right away. Long story short my daughter needed buccal, lip and tongue ties released. With physical therapy and follow up visits from Jacqueline my daughter recovered beautifully. Breastfeeding was less painful in two weeks and painless shortly after that. Jacqueline saved my breastfeeding journey. I can't thank her enough and will not hesitate to use her again if I have a second child. I've recommended her numerous times to friends and colleagues. Thank you Jacqueline for all you do in educating and supporting mamas." What’s your experience of breastfeeding been like?
💗 Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind you how big it really is 💗 Jamie officially 3 weeks old today!!! It’s hard to believe it’s just been 3 weeks because I already can’t imagine life without him. It’s been a an awesome and tiring whirlwind of diapers, burping, feeding, cuddling, rocking, crying and soooooo much love. A year ago we couldn’t even imagine that this little guy would be joining our family. For the longest time we thought Alex would be our last baby...but now our family truly feels complete. I’m not sure why we were lucky enough to have him choose us to be his family...but I believe it was meant to be.
Hi there! I’m Ellie + I am a postpartum doula. I thought I would just take a second to introduce myself. • First let me explain the whole postpartum doula thing. Think of me like a nonjudgmental best friend who knows a whole lot about babies, breastfeeding + postpartum care + whose only commitment is to you, your newborn + your family. • Ok, a little bit about me. I am new to FLA by way of New England (go Pats!). I live in Trinity (AKA New Port Richey) with my husband and kids. We have several large gators that like to sun bathe in our backyard and that will never stop being cool to me. 🐊🐊🐊 • I love to travel, visit my family up north, boat, hang with my fam, read scary books, listen to music, nap + meditate. • Tell me something fun or surprising about you!
While Daddy is out for Christmas drinks, I'm snuggled up in bed with my baby, my bump, and my book. ❤ I think my poor Squish is having a hard time with his teeth at the moment, which means very sleep for either of us. Plenty of cuddles (and ice cream!), and hopefully we'll be back to normal sooner rather than later. On a separate note, I think this might be my favourite of @heidi_swain's books yet! A truly lovely festive treat. 🎄 #itsthesimplethings #gogently #takeamoment #slowlydoesit #motherhood #parenthood #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingtoddler #twoyearold #27weekspregnant #pregnantmummy #bookworm #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #constantreader #lovereading #heidiswain #thechristmaswishlist #christmasstories #christmasreads #tistheseason #christmasspirit #festivecheer #countdowntochristmas #decemberdays

Then>>>Now. . I remember worrying about not being able to nurse you. After not being able to breastfeed (or feed you period) for the first 2 days of your life, then 9 days in the nicu with only pumping to barely get anything at all just to feed you a tiny cotton swab of milk, to taking you home and bottle feeding you because your tongue tie and facial droop didn’t allow you to nurse, to using the breast shield for weeks just to get a few solid sucks, to then nursing to sleep randomly a few times...and then finally to trading out almost every bottle feed to only nursing.... we’ve come so far miss maya.🧡 📷: @elyserowlandphoto . #16weekspostpartum #4monthspostpartum #4monthsold #mommyistired #breastfeedingjourney #breastfeedingmama
Noticed how relaxed momma is during breastfeeding?? You too can achieve more milk by being as relaxed as possible! Try listen to your favorite music, favorite movie, mediations apps, what ever does it for you! #lactation #lactationconsultant #lactationsupport #breastfeeding #breastfeedinginpublic #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingjourney #newmomlife #mommilk #momlife #ibclc #birthdoula
Pre-kid body - “You need to eat something, you look anorexic.” . . While pregnant - “Is she even growing in there? Are you sure you’re pregnant?!” . . Post kid body - “You’ll ruin your boobs if you breastfeed that long, they’ll be pancakes.” . . Everyone, everyBODY has a story; yet we get torn apart - tall, thin, chubby, thick, because society has put a vision of the 'perfect' body in our heads. We as women of all shapes and sizes have got to break the cycle, for our children. We are beautiful, we are strong and we can stand together. That's why I teamed up with a group of amazingly inspiring ladies to prove to you today, that all bodies are good bodies. Head to @nicrhodes_ next to see her story. ❤
🤱🏼 Dinner before dinner! Aurora knows how to spend the time in a good way, while waiting for the food to get ready and served 🍲. The best starter 😊 if you ask Aurora.

Pause for a couple of minutes.⠀ ⠀ Honour yourself and where you’re at in this moment in your life.⠀ ⠀ Be present.⠀ ⠀ You’ve done hard things and you’ve survived them all.⠀ ⠀ You’re stronger than you think.⠀ ⠀ This little guy is proof to me every single day how strong I am.⠀ ⠀ Took me five years to finally meet you but the wait was so worth it.⠀ ⠀ There were many tears and hard days during the five years but they just made me appreciate you even more once you got here.⠀ ⠀ Thank you for making me wait so I could work on me to become my strongest self before having you come into my life.
And just like that, Sammy is now 4. ✨ He was born here at home, with the help of my midwives Susanna Napierala and Colette Mercier, and doula Becca DeMartini, and my brother-in-law’s dog, Bones. And Sam and William, of course. He was checked in on by Rosanne Gephart of Better Beginnings for Babies (betterbeginningsforbabies.org). It’s been so beautiful and a little emotional to look back at these photos. Gosh I miss his baby-ness- it all went by so quick. Day to day was so hard in the beginning but boy was it worth it. I am so honored to be his mama. I’m so grateful for my family, for my life, for this journey. Happy Happy Birthday, my sweet love.

“Am I doing this right, mama?” Moving my body & getting those endorphins flowing is good for so many reasons but a big one is showing Coop what a healthy and strong mama can do! It’s not always easy to fit in & some days it doesn’t happen but on the days that it does I hope I’m setting a good example for my little guy. Tonight I’ll be announcing something I have been working on for a while and I am SO excited about! Stay tuned 🥰 #mommyandmeworkout #17weeksold #4monthsold #mommyandme #mamasboy #newbornlife #postpartumbodylove #tummytimefun #breastfeedingmama #theyarewatching #motherhoodrising #motherhoodinspired

My reunited love for dates has turned into an obsessed with Sticky Toffee Pudding inspired creations this holiday season! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've had one on repeat daily that I can't wait to share with you on Monday but in the meantime Sticky Toffee Gnocchi! FINALLY almost through all the cauliflower gnocchi I stocked up on last year before I got pregnant and then didn't have the stomach to eat, only 2 bags left and finally some much needed room in the freezer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In less than 15 minutes to make, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and paleo. Oh and the quick date caramel is sure to be a staple (oatmeal, smoothies, toast, pancakes, yogurt bowls....)! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sticky Toffee Pudding Cauliflower Gnocchi • 1 bag @traderjoes cauliflower gnocchi . Sticky Date Caramel (makes enough for 2 batches, or extra for one of the ways listed above to enjoy😉) • 5 fresh Medjool dates, soaked hot water for 10 minutes and drained • 1/4c @so_delicious Snickerdoodle Oatmilk Creamer, OR @califiafarms Nog, OR @rebbl Spiced Vanilla Protein Elixir • 2 TBSP coconut palm sugar • 3 TBSP pure maple syrup • 1 tsp vanilla extract or paste • 1/2 tsp cinnamon • pinch of fresh ground nutmeg ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instructions: •Spray air fryer basket with coconut oil and cook gnocchi for 5 mins at 400F. •Toss and cook another 5 mins at 400F •In the meantime drain the dates and blend all the Sticky Date Caramel Ingredients together in a small food processor (to use a Vitamix you will need to make a double batch, oh darn) until smooth. •Remove gnocchi and place in a bowl and toss with half of the Sticky Date Caramel. •Return to air fryer and cook an additional 2-3 minutes until golden brown. •Enjoy as is, sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar if you like things sweeter, or drizzle with more Sticky Date Caramel! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . NO AIR FRYER? NO PROBLEM! Saute in a cast iron skillet with coconut oil, flip and saute. Add date caramel, toss, and put under the broiler watching closely. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Was going to enjoy them with a gingerbread latte but really sore from barre last night so went with a Golden Turmeric Latte made with @navitasorganics Turmeric Latte and steamed @ripplefoods.

I feel like @staceysolomon just jumped into my head and said my exact thoughts and feelings when Penelope was born. How lovely that @nadiasawalhaandfamily is such a fantastic friend to you that you can talk to her about the way you felt. Most of us just keep it in because if you say it out loud ... will you sound crazy? ... I’m not going to lie, I think about the day I will stop feeding Penelope and I don’t know how I’ll feel. #breastfeeding #breastfeedinginpublic #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingjourney #breastfeedingproblems #breastfeedingclothes #breastfeedingisbeautiful #normalisebreastfeeding #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeedingmummy #breastfeedingmommy #breastfeedingmum #breastfeedingwithoutfear #weaning #weaningjourney
Maybe you are comparing your journey to that mom on Instagram and wonder why you aren’t “there yet.”⠀ ⠀ Or maybe you haven’t even recognized the progress YOU have made!⠀ ⠀ Which one speaks to you the most?⠀ ⠀ 1, 2, or 3?

S O M E T I M E S // the things we are afraid of turn out to be the easiest things of all. While I was pregnant with Scout, feeding Fox became progressively harder. Every time he latched it was uncomfortable because my nipples were so sensitive and that made me feel irritated. Some days were easier, other days I just could not bear the thought of one more feed. He thankfully wasn't feeding all that often and had enough change coming so I perservered giving him feeds in the morning, after daycare on work days and for naps on home days. Then Scout came along, the sensitivity disappeared mostly and all was right with the world. I do need to work out how to get Fox down to just a couple of feeds a day again because he seems to want boobie whenever Scout has it...but that is a task for another day. I mean who really needs personal space anyway right?! 😂
Move aside oatmeal! Papa’s home and he made Pomm Darphins for breakfast 😍 Gosh, I love my man.
I was recently asked if I feel bad talking about breastfeeding and my profession around people that I don't know how they fed their kids since they might feel judged. My answer: NO!! You know what I do feel bad about: I feel bad for the mom that I had a consult with this week who is producing less than half of her babies milk because of how lactation was handled for the 4 days she was in the hospital. I feel bad for all the moms that want to breastfeed, but can't because of misinformation or mishandling of their situation. Many don't even realize that their breastfeeding situation could have been completely different if better information was out there and easier to access. I believe that information is power and giving information is empowerment. There are always going to be times when we wish we knew things earlier because we would have done things differently, but we can't be hard on ourselves when this happens. Personally, I wish knew everything I know now when I was breastfeeding my first baby. But that does not stop me from advocating for others and trying to help others feel empowered. #breastfeeding #breastfed #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingmom #lactation #lactationconsultant #boulderlactationconsultant #IBCLC #breastfeedingtips #bouldervalleylactation #bouldermom #babytongue #parenting #newdadlife #lowsupply #posteriortonguetie #momlife #trustyourinstincts #commonisnotnormal #momshaming #momjudging #stopmomshaming #breastfeedingnazi #informationisnotjudgement #informationispower #empowerwomen
Breastfeeding is not easy, my journey has been very challenging this time round, but my gosh it’s been worth it. Someone once said to me that breastfeeding is 90% determination and 10% milk production and that’s definitely been true in my case. It’s take a dedication and determination I didn’t know existed. It’s been much smoother sailing these last few months so I’m soaking it all up and cherishing these quiet, beautiful moments whilst we still have them. . .
