This review has been a long time coming. Earlier this year, my husband and I took a 12 week natural child birthing course called the Bradley Method. It centers on an intervention free labor and birth, with a husband, partner or other loved one acting as a coach, guiding the woman through the childbirth process. …
It’s no secret that my l’il bub and I have struggled with breastfeeding from the beginning. Whether due to latching issues on his end, or insufficient supply on my end we’re not sure (you can read about our breastfeeding struggles here). Regardless of the issue, I set out to increase my supply to compensate for …

He refuses both breast and bottle; swaddling, baths, skin to skin, walking, bouncing… nothing seems to soothe him. …
With the recent controversies over mainstream baby wipes, I’ve been excited to make the transition to cloth baby wipes. Normal baby wipes have so many unpronounceable ingredients and many score poorly on EWG’s Skin Deep database. I’m already careful on what products I use for myself, why wouldn’t I do the same for my child? …
Ethan came out pretty quickly, and unfortunately I did suffer from a 1st degree perineal tear and a clitoral tear. We planned for his head to emerge spontaneously, but at that point in the labour, there was no telling me not to push. I was so glad I had the foresight to make these postpartum …
