5 reasons to continue to breastfeed

I saw this and loved it because some days are hard.  Lately little man has been really hurting while nursing with the latch and head turn.  :(  I also think teeth are coming soon but I am going to keep on trucking along!

Top 5 reasons to continue breastfeeding
  1. Promotes a growing bond between you and your baby.
  2. Provides your baby with infection-fighting antibodies.
  3. Releases hormones that promote mothering behavior.
  4. May help protect your baby from obesity and diabetes.
  5. Reduces the risk of ovarian cancer and breast cancer for mom later in life.

Thanks for sharing this. All of my babes have been easy breastfeeders, with the exception of my now 6 year old -- as a newborn, it took her almost two weeks to properly latch! Though I didn't give up, I sure could have used this reminder six years ago! :) Have a blessed day!

I wasn't able to breastfeed with my little ones. I tried so hard, but I just could. It is great that you are.

Oh I am sorry you are having problems. Do you have a lactation consultant? They are really terrific. Little Bit and I were blessed enough to nurse for 13 months. It was hard at times but I am really glad we stuck it out. Praying for you guys that it will get easier!

Hang in there! It can be difficult while teeth are coming in! Set the standard right away, if he bites, stop nursing immediately and wait an hour or two before feeding him again. I had several run ins with Gracie when she was teething! Your doing great! Keep going!!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
