Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka - Competitive breastfeeding
Julia Arnold

Competitive Breastfeeding

Before you had a baby, you might have heard a new mom talk about her big leaky boobs, or witness a baby quietly nursing under a blanket, but you didn’t really know what was truly involved with breastfeeding, right?

Then, BAM! You are in the hospital, holding your tiny baby for the first time, and
immediately asked if you are ready to try nursing. You are then pressured to room-in with your baby, again to encourage breastfeeding.

You come home from the hospital, exhausted, depleted, and eager to keep the baby alive, and people start asking how the nursing is going. How long you’ll be nursing. And for the love of God– ‘when your milk came in.’ READ MORE

    Felicity Huffman's What The Flicka? - Parenting Amnesia
    Angela Keck

    Parental Amnesia

    My children are no longer toddlers, or preschoolers.  I’m solidly in the teen and tween years here.  I remember my children being younger, or at least I think I do but the reality is there’s a lot of amnesia that happens once your children outgrow a phase.

    I remember someone telling me that we can only relate to the phase our children are in now, and the one they’re approaching.  Everything else is a blur we vaguely remember some details about.  I didn’t believe it at the time (I had a baby at the time!) but now I totally get it!
