Has anyone had a tough time with this?? I feel like I am ready to stop, but every time my son “asks” for it, I can’t bare to see him sad and I cave. I know it’s his biggest comfort and I feel really depressed every time I think about stopping.
I have recently decided to mostly stop working after Christmas and I am super nervous about it! I have been working almost 50 hours a week but I have realized that most of my money is going to childcare and fast food because I never have time to cook. What are routines that y’all stick to? How do you keep busy throughout the day? My daughter will be 3 next week. My son is in school during the day.
I thought I was sure that I wanted to wean my son at 12 months, and from 8 months, I weaned him off night feeds- giving him water instead- and reduced nursing to twice in 24 hours. I barely feel any let down, if at all in one breast, and my breasts have considerably reduced in size etc. Now I’m on the way out, I really wish I was could continue. Could I try again? I still nurse him twice a ... More
Ever since my second dose of the Depo shot, I have been hungry pretty much all the time. I try to not eat right away when I'm hungry if I have just eaten a meal, but sometimes I can't help it and feel like I need to eat something. Even after I've had a big meal, I seem to be hungry within about an hour after eating. Anyone else experience this?? This is my second time being on the s... More
Ever since I had my son my vagina is very off. Periods are off, the whole nine yards. One thing I have very large insecurities about is my discharge. If I smell the slightest bit of it I go change everything. I know the vagina is a natural cleaner but like I cannot deal with any smell. It’s different every day. I douche but nothing seems to help. I need advice 😩
So I’m 7 months post and still have a lot of excess skin like to the point it looks like I could have just had her. I work out eat right and do ab tightening exercises but nothing works. My abs still feel separated and even though I’m losing fat the skin is refusing to go back to normal. Any one else have this issue and if so did you get a tummy tuck? I also have chronic back pain and have read... More
Apologies in advance if this is inappropriate. I’m due to have my first baby soon and would like to breastfeed, however I have very small breasts (barely an A Cup pre-pregnancy and now actually fit it) I’m worried my baby won’t be able to latch or we may have other difficulties. I was just wondering if anyone had the same experience or any advice on how to make breastfeeding achievable?
My baby is about 4 and a half months and initially, I tried to breastfeed, but I just couldn't lactate. I even tried pumping and it seemed like I pumped for nothing. I feel I lost a bond with my baby because I didn't breastfeed and I was even shamed for it! I really want to know if anyone has tried to relactate and what worked. My baby has a cows milk allergy that is found in normal fo... More
So for the first couple months I pumped frequently and have a huge oversupply in my freezer. I stopped pumping and just directly feed and my baby is almost 4 months. What can I do with all this milk? I would cry if I had to toss it, but other than milk baths idk what to do.
I had an awful day and night. Had 3 breakdowns where I just hysterically cried. I have a two year old, a one year old, and am 9 months pregnant and I was with the kids all day while my husband worked. It was fine for the most part except my one year old gets into EVERYTHING that it’s just too much to baby proof. And it blows my mind I can’t get a single thing done such as washing dishes for 10m...

I've always been someone with a plenty of friends & people to hang out with & as soon as I became pregnant all my friends disappeared. I always knew moms who talked about losing friends when they became a mom but I didn't realize I was gonna have to meet all new friends. & Meeting mommy friends is a lot harder than I thought. Did any other mommys struggle with making new m... More
My 3 month old son usually sleeps from 9-10pm to 5-6am. Should I pump at night to maintain my milk supply? I used to set an alarm and wake up at 2am to pump, but I noticed that alarm and me moving around wakes the baby up. What other moms do in that kind of situation?
