Babies cry. That’s how they communicate with us. But some babies cry a lot more than others. For breastfed babies, one possible answer could be food sensitivities given through the breast milk. So, how do you know if your baby has food sensitivities? And how can you figure out which foods are causing the problem? Today our moms share their experience with elimination diets designed to help baby (and mom) feel better.

You’re pregnant and you’re planning to breastfeed your baby. But how? Putting your newborn baby at the breast seems pretty basic. Still, you may have many questions, and that’s why many moms are choosing to take a prenatal breastfeeding class! What can you expect from taking one of these classes? What do you really need to know before your baby is born?
We’re moms and we all want what’s best for our babies, right? If we truly believe that, then why aren’t we more supportive of one another? We can’t possibly know all the reasons behind a mom’s decision to feed her baby- whether it’s by breastfeeding, pumping, milk sharing, or formula feeding. And still we end up judging one another, unfairly. So, how can we change this?
What happens when life throws you a curveball and you’re unable to breastfeed? What? Is that even possible? Weren’t our bodies designed to nourish our babies? If you’re a mom struggling with not being able to breastfeed your baby- you’re not alone. And sometimes you just need to let go.
We spend about nine months growing a baby, and after our babies are born, our bodies create breast milk (the most nutritious food possible) to help them grow and keep them healthy. Our bodies are truly amazing, and still many of us don’t view them that way. And how can these negative feelings impact our breastfeeding goals?
By now, you’ve probably heard of the Zika virus, which is spreading quickly. We know pregnant women can pass Zika their unborn child, but what exactly does that mean for both mom and baby? And what about moms who provide breast milk for their babies? Are they at risk too?
As new mothers, we can be a little too obsessed about fitting back into our pre-pregnancy clothes. As it turns out, having a little extra fat on your body may be its way of protecting both you and your baby.
