This Week on the Mommy Web

Friday, February 03, 2017

This week on the interwebs, there were quite a few interesting reads.

A study of mommy mummies shows that breastfeeding until the age of three was the norm in ancient Egypt. Breastfeeding older babies and toddlers is actually saved their lives.

I complete relate to the article "I Refuse to Believe That Your Baby Sleeps in a Crib". If you say your baby sleeps in a crib, you are a stone cold liar.

And this cute, but informative cartoon demonstrates how to perform infant CPR. It's only two minutes long, so watch and share!


Back to Work - First 2 Weeks

Monday, January 30, 2017

An update from working mom Tiffany.
It’s been two weeks since I went back to work and so far things are going well. It’s nice to have time talking at an (almost) adult level and then going home to my little guy. When I walk through the door he crawls to me as fast as he can and is so excited – quite a nice welcome home.

During my first few days of work, I found that I had to pump at 3 times during the day. Pumping was awful! It was noisy and uncomfortable for me. Kudos to the working moms that make it work.

After a few days, my milk production adjusted and I was able to just pump during my lunch break. I changed to just manually expressing and using the simple and quiet Haakaa pump. The silicone pump is much more comfortable and even seems to work better than the noisy and bulky electric pump.

Now, I find that I just have to pump when I feel that I need it (sometimes in the late afternoon). And I give my little guy plenty of milk in the morning and when I go home. I also co-sleep with him and let him nurse all he wants at night. I think co-sleeping has helped ensure that my milk hasn’t dried up. It is also a nice way to get my fix of baby cuddles.

Introducing the Sweetheart Box

Sunday, January 22, 2017

Just in time for Valentine's Day, we have put together a box filled with goodies for your sweetheart. It's the Sweetheart Box for those with a sweet tooth for candy and puns.

We have packed the box with local made products, like Gourmet du Village hot chocolate, chocolate heart sucker, and Valentine's card.

Best of all, there are a ton of cutesy Valentine's puns. There is a 'let's spoon' spoon, an 'I love you berry much' card, and conversation hearts.

We hope that you or your loved one enjoy this box!
