Breastfeeding // My Breastfeeding Essentials

In a weeks time I will have earned my “bronze boobies” for breastfeeding Indy for a whole three months! It’s a milestone I honestly never thought I’d hit after the difficult breastfeeding journey Busby and I experienced, and I’m so proud I’ve made it this far. There have been ten things that I would consider essentials, that have seriously helped my breastfeeding journey progress and continue, and I thought I’d share them: 1. A decent, supportive,  ...

Breastfeeding // How Breastfeeding is turning me into Oscar the Grouch

I’ve been breastfeeding Indy for over two months now (which, according to one of the Facebook breastfeeding support groups I’m a member of, apparently earns me my brass boobies!) and whilst I’m utterly in awe that my body can continue to grow him on the outside, I’m still experiencing a love-hate relationship with the process.

You can read my early days of breastfeeding post here. Every week I think to myself “if I just get to the end of this week I’ll be happy”, and at the end of that week I give myself a big pat on the back and a large slice of cake. It’s not been  ...

Review // Thrupenny Bits Breastfeeding Pillow

My beautiful Thrupenny Bits breastfeeding pillow was delivered a few weeks before Indy arrived on the planet, and I fell head over heels with it as soon as I unwrapped it. In fact, I used it a number of times before he was born as a pregnancy pillow, when trying to get comfortable in bed or on the sofa. It took me a while to choose a pillow from all of the wonderful designs – I was stuck between the classic blue stripe and classic blue floral cushion; the latter is the pillow I  ...
