        Nursing your baby can look like this

        ….but more often it looks like this

        The reality is that breastfeeding is 10% sweet and 90% crazy, at least for me! So what does it feel like to breastfeed? What is breastfeeding really like? Breastfeeding is:

        Pinching

        Pounding

        Titty Twisting

        Tugging

        Scratching

        Popping off to stare around and expose you…then yelling at you because the boob is gone

        Nipple damage

        Biting (come one do they really need teeth this young?!)

        Acrobatic nursing

        Baby testing how far your nipples can stretch

        Feeling absolutely touched out

        Wondering if your breasts will ever be sexual objects again

        It’s dealing with hot nursing covers

        It’s nursing in strange places to get a little privacy

            I survived my third month of blogging! I’m definitely still learning a lot and making mistakes. A lot of learning is done through trial and error and testing things to see what works for me at this point. I’m hoping some of what I’ve found helpful and the mistakes I’ve made will help you with your blogging venture. This month was exciting as I actually made money. It was a fluke in a way and a one off that isn’t repeatable on a regular basis,

              If you’re looking for a cute first Halloween outfit look no further than this DIY cookie monster costume for babies and toddlers. Who can resist an adorable baby and cookies? Especially if you have a chunky baby like mine. You could adapt it for a little boy by putting him in pants and a hat instead of the tutu and headband. This outfit is a bit time consuming but not overly difficult to make. You can grab a printable version of the directions with a guide for the pieces at the bottom of the page.
