Focus on Success

Posted by | Breastfeeding, Daily Reassurance, Feeding Time | No Comments

Focus on the little successes. Very seldom do we get things on the very first try. Breastfeeding is no different. Did it take fewer tries for her to latch on today? Did she latch on more quickly?  Don’t wish for perfection. Just celebrate the positive small things in your journey with your baby.

To Be Prepared (or not!)

“There is one thing I have never taught my body how to do and that is figure out at 6 AM what it wants to eat at 6 PM.”

Erma Bombeck

Oh Erma. She gets it, doesn’t she? Planning has never been my strong suit, and dinner is no exception! Sometimes, I don’t even know what we are having while I am pulling out ingredients to cook with! (Please tell me someone else does this.) Are you the same way? Or do you have the week lined out so there are no surprises when it comes to dinnertime?

Yummy Story Time!

Tell the story of “The Princess and the Pea” when you introduce peas to your child for the first time. Let her feed herself with her small fingers. You’ll be so proud when she looks forward to them and amazed at her coordination too!

Table Talk

When you eat together, you talk together. You are the most important voice in her little life. Table talk also establishes family values and creates a sense of belonging that no child should ever miss out on.

Open Up!

She is talking and letting you know she is ready to feed when her mouth is open wide like a yawn, that’s the time to bring her to your breast quickly and gently. Soon you both will do this naturally.  Isn’t it a wonderful feeling to know you can provide everything she needs and wants?
