Foto Friday

"Foto" Friday is a play on phrase for Photo Friday. I take a million pictures each week, well maybe not a million...... but A LOT! So I thought it would be nice to share my favorite picture from the week. Each Friday, I will post one picture and each "Foto" will include a small caption. Some pictures will be related to breastfeeding, while others will not. I hope you enjoy "Foto Friday!" Do you like "Foto" Friday? Well come on over to our facebook page and join in! I love seeing your "Fotos."


This is Kit Kat's "not happy, don't look at me" face. I guess she was not happy about the camera....... Can you just hear the "grrrrrrrrr" coming from her throat? hehe

Milk and sugar

We all know that breastfeeding can attract some crazy comments.... some with positive intentions... others not so much. I have not (personally) heard any in a while..... until the other day. Now this person (who will remain anonymous) meant nothing bad ( at least I don't think so.) I think this person spoke out of "concern".

I know "concern? What do you mean, Mummie?" You see...... some people are more concerned (than we are) about what other people think when they hear or (GASP) see Mummies nursing in public (or not in public.) So these (sweet, caring) people will speak out.

So here is how it went:

Sweet, caring person: "So how many times is she nursing now?"
Me: "three to four times a day."
Sweet, caring person: "Oh wow. I didn't know she was still nursing that often."
Me: "Yeah, she is showing no intention of slowing down."
Sweet, caring person: "Well, have you tried her on milk?"
Me: "Yeah, she doesn't like it still. But she will drink a homemade smoothy like it's candy!"
Sweet, caring person: "Well, have you mixed sugar with the milk? Maybe she will drink that."
Me: "I don't really want to mix milk with sugar. We'll just wait until she is done nursing, and then try milk again. My goal is two years The World Health Organization and The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends two years and beyond. The way she is going she will prob be 3 years old before she decides she is done with me. But it is her choice."
Sweet, caring person: "The way she is going she might be 5 years old."
Me: *giggles* "Yeah who knows....she might be! And that is okay." *giggles again*


(Before anyone goes into GRRRRR mode)

This sweet, caring person (I am sure) meant no harm in what was said. I wanted to share this because it shows how many more steps behind breastmilk truly is, in the eyes of others. Really????!!!!!! Mix sugar in with cows milk?  I have nothing against cows milk.... I do not. Pooker drinks it. BUT there is PLENTY  of sugar in milk...... adding more to it seems kinds silly. I did try and offer Kit Kat strawberry milk a while back..... but then realized how stupid that was. Plus... once I realized I was offering it to her for OTHER people's benefit.... I stopped.

I really, truly feel this person spoke out to "protect" me from others. You know the whole "**GASP** What would others think???? What would others say??!!!!!! **Double GASP**"


My response..... who cares? She is getting milk.... MY MILK! :-)

Hugs Mummies!

Look at me... look at me NOW!

I have found that nursing a toddler has a whole new set of rules! Kit Kat is 22 months old and has become one demanding little Nummie Lover! In the past, I have NEVER been able to talk while she was nursing. Oh man... she HATED that! There were times, she even hated it when I looked at her. Luckily the whole "don't look at me" phase was super short, the "don't talk and nurse me" phase is still kicking strong!

Two days ago, however, she started something new. IF by chance I am not looking at her (and she wants me to look at her) she will reach up, place my cheek in the palm of her hand, and turn my face to look at her. Then she will smile her "still latched on" smile. Ohhhhh man! I about melted! You better believe I kept my eyes locked onto hers the rest of the time!

Kit Kat's "still latched on" smile

 BUT.....this morning she changed the rules! Oh sure, she did the same sweet cheek into palm move......... BUT then she violently pushed my head away seconds after making me look at her! ONLY to make me look at her again..... then push me away again! Each time with such a sinister laugh!

Oh yes, Mummies.... my sweet teeny-tiny Kit Kat is evolving into a sinister little Nummie Lover!

World Milksharing Week 2011



Happy World Milksharing Week!!! The last week of September is dedicated to breastmilk sharing. The goal for WMW is to "celebrate milksharing and to promote human milk as the biologically normal nourishment for babies and children." To kick off this special week... I thought I would share a milk sharing story. It is not mine... but I think you will recognize the daddy in this story.

Last week, Curtis became known as "The Breastmilk Dad" as he and his wife decided he would go on a strictly breastmilk diet. Not just any wife's nummies. You see she had about 3 freezers FULL of pumped breastmilk and their children could not go through it all in time. So in hopes to aid his health... he decided to consume only breastmilk and document the journey. Fast forward a few days... after much scrutiny and some horrible comments, they took down their blog and went silent. BUT over the weekend an update emerged! It involves a Mummie with quadruplets, 3 freezers full of Mummie's Nummies and a dad willing to help. You see the "breastmilk dad" gave up their stash to help a Mummie in need!

I think it was a great outcome.... BUT I would have LOVED to see how it would have played out if he did in fact stick to the new diet. Would the breastmilk have helped his digestive issues? There is not much research done as to the effects breastmilk has on adults. What a great research topic! In my opinion..... it was Katie's (Cutris' wife) breastmilk.... so she can use it how she wants. She had donated previous breastmilk to babies in need (somewhere along the lines of thousands of ounces.) But how else are we going to find out the benefits to adults, unless adults actually consume it?

But either way... what an awesome outcome!!!! And no better timing than this week! What a great way to get the word out about breastmilk sharing. Those sweet 4 little nummie lovers are in for a treat!!!!!!!

My Memories review and giveaway

CONGRATS TO CARRIE COMMENT #20!



I think you know that I am a HUGE picture person! I take pictures like a crazy person! Most of my pictures are of the girls (go figure) and I love to share them! I have dabbled in scrapbooking, in the past, and LOVED it. But honestly I can take HOURS doing just ONE page! And to be honest.... I don't really have that kind of time. (Plus it can get SUPER FREAKY expensive!)

Well one day last week I got a pleasant surprise in my email! Liz, from My Memories, contacted me and asked if I was interested in trying out her company's product! First I was super excited..... someone contacted ME for ME to try their product??!! AWESOME! But then I thought "what IS mymemories.com?" So of course I went on a researching binge!

My Memories is a digital scrapbooking "store" (more so experience!) that allows you to do EVERYTHING scrapbooking on your computer! That's right Mummies no more cutting, gluing, punching out, and bye bye paper cuts! Yeah.... so I was curious! They also have My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software, a digital scrapbooking software that is rated #1 by Amazon and TopTen Reviews. Liz was so kind as to offer this software to me (a 39.97 dollar value) for free! I was able to get the downloadable software from their website (in my jammies) and I began to "go at it!"


My first thoughts......





WOWZERS!!! The My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software has just about EVERYTHING! You can choose a pre created layout or you can create your own (which is super easy), they have embellishments galore, cute sayings, background colors, background designs.... you name it the software has it! I have spent a few hours playing around and still have yet to see all it has to offer! You can also download FREE scrapbooking kits OR buy them on their website AND use them on the My Memories Suite Software! Here is my first one. I think it is a great way to remember our "moments" before they are over! (**sniff sniff**)



Also.... the best part..... your scrapbook page (or pages 'cause I know you will do more than 1!) does not have to locked away on your computer! You can print it out on your home printer, put it up on your blog (cool huh?), email it, create a slide show, order calenders or books.... the options are endless!


At the moment I have about 5 pages going at once on my My Memories Suite v2..... Yeah.... I could get lost in "My Moments" for a long time! Hehe

The soothing effects of breastfeeding

It is no secret that breastfeeding can calm an upset Nummie Lover.... but did you know it can also calm an upset Mummie?

If you remember, we were all in a car accident in late July. We were rear ended just as we came to a stop at a red light. (The collision was so bad it pushed us through the entire intersection, as the person who hit us "couldn't find the break pedal" in time.)

I was driving at the time, saw the car coming and could do nothing to avoid it. The stress of what happened to us was so intense. I found myself more concerned for my daughters and my husband over myself. All I remember is looking over at my husband making sure he was fine and then I was out of the car trying to get Pooker out. (I believe the back doors were locked but don't really remember unlocking them.) I was shaking as I was holding Pooker (my husband had Kit Kat in his arms) and I kept on saying "Shhhhh it's okay" as I tried to sooth her, as she was visibly upset and shaken.

At some point my husband and I "traded" babies and I was holding Kit Kat, still shaking myself. I remember looking at the clock in my car...... 1 pm. the first thing that popped in my head......."FEEDING TIME!" So without hesitation I sat in the driver's seat (while waiting for the police to arrive) and began feeding Kit Kat.

There I sat in the driver's seat, in a non drivable car (but still on so the air was running... thank goodness!) nursing my Nummie Lover..... just passed an intersection with cars on one side of me stopped at a red light and cars driving by me on the other side. And you KNOW everyone has to look at a car accident..........so I am sure they got a good look at what was going on (as I was so not concerned with being modest at the time.)

But for that brief amount of time..... I did not care. I was so tensed up when I began feeding Kit Kat...... but found myself relax bit by bit as I nursed her. My breathing slowed, my heart rate slowed and I began to calm down. I remember thinking to Kit Kat "this must be what nursing does to you when you are upset." For those few precious moments all that mattered was her and I. The cars around us seemed to disappear, the nightmare that had just occurred seemed to be halted. All that I could see was Kit Kat looking up at me. All I could hear was the sound of her nursing. All I could feel was her playing with my hair.

Now all that ended when she was done nursing.... then reality came back. But I was so thankful for those few moments. That feeding will always be one I remember....... the feeding when Kit Kat helped me. When the Nummie Lover helped the Nummie Maker.

A stinky little secret

Okay, so we are all grown Mummies. Have seen babies coming out of us, milk coming from our Nummie Makers, premature loss of bladder control, been spewed on, pooped on, pee'd on and drooled on...... So nothing is really too "graphic" for us....... right? RIGHT!

So with that said let's talk about BO. That's right... body odor! Not the person next to you.... yours. Have you noticed since your nummie lover was born that you have a case of the "stinkies?" Maybe that you tend to run a little hotter than you did before. I'm not talking about smelling like spilled, spoiled breastmilk. I am talking about just run of the mile, raw BO. Do you find yourself diving into the shower two/three times a day? Applying your Deo three times or more each day? Stare at the soap isle like you have never seen soap before.... trying to find one that MIGHT keep you smelling clean?! Have you ever connected the two?

It seems that a TON of new Mummies (Nummie making mummies and formula feeding Mummies) have this problem. But for the formula feeding Mummies..... this problem tends to go away long before Nummie making Mummies. Mummies have a rush of hormones after having a baby.....the chemistry in your body changes, which can cause a change in how your body smells (or stinks) and how much you sweat. But for breastfeeding Mummies..... this "change" might stick around longer once your pregnancy "hormones" calm down.  We all know that breastfeeding changes your hormones and specifically the Estrogen hormone. You can pretty much thank your Estrogen levels for your new found "stank." Here is why: When Estrogen Levels drop, a false message is sent to the hypothalamus (think of that as your internal thermostat) saying "hey this Mummie is over heated, better do something about that." And the hypothalamus  jumps into action and tries to cool the body off by making sweat and there Mummies is why some of us have a stink.

When I say "some of us" I am including myself in that as well. (Hate to admit it.... but sometimes you just have to!) Come each morning and evening I am DYING for a shower! I can not wear any shirt with sleeves (thank goodness I love me some tank tops.) And thanks to my newly found coupon shopping addiction, I have a vast variety of deodorants and bath soaps under my bathroom cabinet. (Have yet to find the "magic" one though.)

Some Mummies have found that powder deodorant and even baking soda help them, while others have found applying some deo or powder under their Nummie makers helps "control" the freshies.

Which ever you way you choose to go I hope it works for you (AND IF IT DOES DROP ME A COMMENT SO I CAN TRY IT!!!) and know I am with you!

Hugs form one stinky to another!

Starting Solid Food

There has been A TON of talk on our facebook page about starting solid foods; when to offer them and how often. Starting your nummie lover on solid foods is a huge milestone! It means your nummie lover is growing up and branching out to try new things. BUT there are so many different ways to handle the introduction to solids. I wrote a post a while back on introducing introducing solid foods and offered up what we did. But I thought it was worth posting about again.

There are a few reasons why MANY organizations (Like The World Health Organization) say to wait until 6 months of age before offering any food other than breastmilk. KellyMom.com has a great article that I found very helpful.
Here are just a few reasons:
*Delaying solids gives baby greater protection from illness.
*Delaying solids gives baby's digestive system time to mature.
*Delaying solids decreases the risk of food allergies.
*Delaying solids helps to protect baby from iron-deficiency anemia.
*Delaying solids helps mom to maintain her milk supply.
We waited 7 months with Pooker and 6.5 months with Kit Kat, before embarking on the solid food journey. We took it once slow step at a time, introducing a new food every week or two. We used brown rice cereal only to thicken up the homemade baby food when it was too watery. (Both of my girls liked CHUNKY food.)
A popular mistake people make is thinking that baby cereal will "fatten" their nummie lover up. Honestly baby cereal contains no more health benefit than "normal" food. More and more doctors are even saying to stay away from "White" Baby Cereal. Dr. Greene has started "The White Out" Campaign, stating that offering your nummie lover "white" baby cereal is like offering them "a spoonful of sugar." So if your mother in law, mother, or grandmother advises you to give your Nummie Lover baby cereal alone..... you can tell her Mummie says you don't have to! hehe.
When you decide it is time for your Nummie Lover to begin the solid food journey, ALWAYS keep in mind that your breastmilk should always be the number one source of nutrition, for the first 12 months. Keeping that in mind..... it is a good idea to offer solid food FOLLOWING a nursing session. Why? Simple. If your Nummie Lover fills up on Mummie's Nummies then he/she will not be so apt to fill up on solid foods. BUT if you offer solid food BEFORE nursing..... your precious Nummie Lover might be too full to get his/her "fill" of the good stuff (your stuff.) Which could result in a drop in supply and perhaps drying up. (Nobody wants to see a Mummie go through premature drying up!)
I always offered solid food within an hour after nursing. (Which is probably why we all eat lunch at 11 am in my house! hehe)
Now when it comes to "how much to offer".... that is when your little Nummie Lover decides. Every baby is different and MANY factors determine how much each baby will eat. I used WholesomeBabyFood.com A TON! They have some great tips, information and recipes for your little one.

There is so much information out there, in this big wide world we live in. So it can be confusing. Just remember to do your research (with places you trust) and do what you feel is best for your Nummie Lover. After all..... you are already giving your baby the best!
HUGS!!!!

Evenflo no longer breastfeeding friendly

 UPDATE: Evenflo has since made ALL of their "new" videos private! Seems they got the message!!!

What the heck is going on lately? Hurricanes, tornadoes, earth quakes, mass flooding, and now the Evenflo disaster??!! Yes Mummies it seems as though the world has gone NUTSO!

Let me break this down for you... Last week Evenflo (The company known for BREASTPUMPS!!!) came out with a tweet that said "Yay or nay - breastfeeding in public? If forced to feed on-the-go, where do you feel most comfortable feeding?"

AND

They have stopped complying with The World Health Organization International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes. As of July 1, 2011, Evenflo began a full-scale advertising campaign to market their baby bottles.... which puts them in the category of being Non-Compliant in the code..... which lumps them with (errrrrrrr) formula companies.


THEN

9 months ago they busted out with a bunch of new online "commercials" that seemed to completely change the whole feeling of what they "claim" to support. Here is one of the videos....... (WARNING THE FOLLOWING VIDEO MIGHT CAUSE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE!)

(videos have all been marked as "private" as of September 6, 2011 in the evening.)

Now some of you have watched the other videos, from Evenflo's website... but I have not. The above video about put me over the edge and I didn't want to be shoved over. So I stayed away (FAR away!!) But I will take your word for it.

So... my opinion of the video? Did I find it funny? Ummmmmm well one part I smirked at. The "2% milk" comment got me (a little) only because I joked that my milk looked like 2% milk at one time. But other than that......... NOT FUNNY. I wanted to reach into my computer screen, yank that poor Mummie out of her house, tell her that she is doing a fantastic job, and then go back and slap that Mother in Law silly! I mean really????!!!! What part of that video was funny?

Was it when the mother in law made the Mummie feel guilty about not "letting" other people feed the baby? Or when the Mother in Law hounded the Mummie about her friend having "12 kids" and said that other people feeding the babies was important? Or was it when the Mummie finally gave in, yelled at her husband for her purse and proceeded to pump in the bedroom.....before looking at the breastpump like it was her hero?! Or how about when the freshly pumped Mummie steps out with breastmilk in a bottle only to lose it to a ridiculously demanding Father in Law as he pours it into his coffee?

Nope.... not laughing here..... Did I miss something?

All this video tells me is how little this company knows about it's customers and breastfeeding in general. I suppose if you have not found yourself in a similar situation then you WOULD find this video funny.......... but to be honest if you have NOT found yourself in a similar situation then you probably have NOT breastfed.......SO would you even be buying from Evenflo?

YUPPPPP wrong move there Evenflo.... Hell have no wrath like a breastfeeding Mummie scorned!

Sound off..... what do you think?

Stanford School of Medicine gives breastfeeding a "graphic warning" label

**I tend to not blog during the weekend, I like weekends to be "family oriented." But every once in awhile I come across something..... that well..... can't wait until Monday. This is one of those rare moments.**


Stanford School of Medicine is under a bit of "graphic warning" fire. On their website they warned that their breastfeeding section contained "graphic content." I am going out on a limb here and going against the grain. I do NOT think that Stanford meant anything negative with the label. I looked at what they had, went through all the links and I was not bothered at all. To me it is more geared towards Medical Professionals and education. I don't know about you... but when I watch or read ANY Medical show or material it ALWAYS starts off with a "graphic content" warning. The link they provided was 100% educational and supportive about breastfeeding. It was all done as a "medical" education for pediatric trainees and a resource for health care professional.


It concerns me that we, breastfeeding supporters, tend to jump onto the "oh no you didn't" bus when it comes to breastfeeding. That sometimes (just sometimes) we tend to over read what is written or over react to what is said. (I did say sometimes.......) I know I have "over reacted" in some instances. The whole adrenaline thing takes over (or Mama Bear Syndrome) and I jump right into defend mode when a Mummie is mistreated, or when the lack of education and support is clearly shown. But this is not always the case and we do not always have to react this way. How are we to tell people that they are wrong to react in a negative way when we sometimes do the same? To me it just seems that it is an endless cycle. Heck I am all for being defensive (I do tend to get that way......... okay I get that way a lot!) but, for me, this instance is being taken a bit out of porportion. "Graphic warnings" do not always mean inappropriate or bloody content.


If you think about it.... The documentary Babies was rated PG..... which I looked up the meaning for this rating. Here is what PG means "The PG rating indicates that parents may consider some material unsuitable for their children. A PG-rated motion picture may contain some profanity and some depictions of violence, sensuality or brief nudity. But, these elements are not deemed so intense as to require that parents be strongly cautioned beyond the suggestion of parental guidance. There is no drug use content in a PG-rated motion picture."


So with that in mind...... what do you think about Stanford School of Medicine? Am I wrong in my thinking? Should I not be supportive of their decision? Should I jump on the "oh no you didn't" bus with the rest of them?


(Be nice to me.... I am still getting over a nasty cold....... wink wink!)
