I get sad thinking that at some point our breastfeeding journey will come to an end 🤱🏻 Harper is our last little blessing & the only one that I have been able to EBF 💛 I have moments where I just want to give up because I’m exhausted, stressed & overwhelmed....then Harper gets hungry & as we sit on the couch together just looking at one another while she eats ... it all just goes away. 💛 All the little sounds she makes & the way she plays with my hair...even the way she pulls & tugs at my face lol. I never want it to stop. I let go a lot of stress once I decided to stop nursing and pumping at the same time. So much went into nursing Harper & then trying to pump throughout the day to build up a stash all while taking care of two toddlers was becoming just to much. I was so hard on myself when I looked in the freezer and didn’t have much in there & all the time it took to wash parts. I just couldn’t do it anymore. I finally just stopped and decided to focus on just nursing and in time I can build a stash of milk in the freezer. So I decided that at the end of the night when Harper was in bed, I would pump once & within days so much stress was lifted off my shoulders. Now I have over 60 oz saved up. I’m very hard on myself and at times felt guilty for wanting to stop nursing Harper. But my husband & family have been a big reason why I have continued...they have been so supportive & I couldn’t of continued without them 💛 Harper & I are going strong at 7 months EBF 😘 #breastfeeding#breastfeedingmama#goingstrong#fedisbest#onedayatatime

I don’t know why I haven’t shared this before but seeing the #powerinpostpartum hashtag going around made me want to get involved.
For me, postpartum is harder mentally than physically. Yes I struggle with my body image post pregnancy (and still a little one year out) but in those first few weeks in the quiet, while trying so hard to breastfeed (we stopped breastfeeding not long after this), the struggle was mental.
The thoughts that come and go, the tears shed and heart aches were real and hard but also wonderful and peaceful and life changing. In those dark, quiet moments I grew stronger as a mother and woman.
So, I’m proud of myself looking back. Definitely proud of what my body created physically but also what my mind withstood mentally. Let’s not forget the power of postpartum mentally Mamas! 💪🏻
What are you most proud of postpartum? Physical or mental? I’d be interested to hear 💕
Let me know if you still desire to have twins after watching this video 😂 See what twin mum has to say: 👉 "MOM VS TWINS🤣 Being a twin parent takes pure talent!!! I thought I’d show a small glimpse of what my life is really like. Just a mama trying to survive soon to be 1 year old twins🤣🥴. I really hope you guys enjoy this more than I did because I am sweaty, tired and out of breath 😂 feel free to share❤️
41 weeks today and it’s National Breastfeeding Week. My body is growing a baby whilst nourishing a toddler, that’s pretty amazing. Hoping baby makes an appearance soon so I can begin my second breastfeeding journey.
#repost This is a post about GRATITUDE on the 💩 days.
I’ve been practicing gratitude more as a way to decrease my anxiety and let me tell you it totally works! (I will talk more on this soon). But how do we find gratitude when everything seems to go wrong?
Like there is literally a LEGO imprint on my booty from when I fell today from my kid’s nightstand as I was trying to be “crafty mom” depositing good things into my children’s memory banks. Long story short making a paper rainforest tree is hard. .
So after I dropped the S words and cried in front of my kids I remembered what gratitude offers me... a return to all that is GOOD in my life. * My children.
* A body that allows me to move and hold my children.
* Breathing in ocean air today.
* 2 friends that helped me accomplish my work today. @jessicarice.co took some work photos and @alittlesaltyblonde folded my laundry all in the name of helping out a fellow mompreneur. * A front row parking spot at Target (so cliche but true.)
Try it with me! For every negative thought replace it with 2 things you’re grateful for!
✨Let me know how it goes.
Tomorrow is a new day! So grateful for that. 🤗
———————— 𝕭𝖗𝖊𝖆𝖘𝖙𝖋𝖊𝖊𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌 ———————— This week it’s #nationalbreastfeedingweek so I want to post my most recent breastfeeding picture to celebrate that. We’re almost 7 months in to our breastfeeding journey and I honestly could not be happier. I struggle with not being able to go literally anywhere without Forrest, I can go for a meal with a friend or for a walk etc on my own or without Forrest because I don’t seem to pump very well so leaving him with a bottle isn’t an option unless it’s a planned thing, and even then it’s just so much effort that I barely even bother. If anyone has any tips on pumping better, if that’s even a thing? Then that would be awesome! I struggle with that side of it all from time to time, but I absolutely love every other part of breastfeeding. I love the cuddles during feeds, the closeness and the bond, I love how easy it has become for both Forrest and I, I love how it just fits for us and it’s going so well. Like I said, I do struggle with the fact I can’t really do much, as it would be nice to have a date night with Johnny, or go to see a movie with a friend or something. But it’s not the end of the world, and I have so much time to do all that, so I’m not overly stressed with that part. Happy and thankful to have gotten to this stage of our breastfeeding journey and super happy to still be continuing 😁🤱🏻 #breastfeeding#breastfeedingmom#breastfeedinginpublic#breastfeedingweek#mom#motherhoodunplugged#momblogger#happiness#love#bond#forever#mother#son#alt#aesthetic
Sometimes I talk so much and write loads, sometimes I don’t have much to say & that’s tonight. I got home at 8ish today, sat with Ezekiel on me & just looked at him & then the tears flowed, I’ve barely seen him this week & it’s heartbreaking but he still smiles at me like I’m the best thing ever💗
I felt so low tonight like everychoice I make is wrong, I know this isn’t true at all but it feels like it at times🙃
I am all about the breastfeeding Committee🍼(this is day 4).. This is my second time around I did it 10 years ago. Made some mistake like I let my son get too attached to one boob and the other one stop producing as much🥺. So that left me with two different sizes breast😩🤣.. I won’t make that mistake again. 😆What are something’s you had to learn from Trial and air?? Tag someone who is also all about breastfeeding🤗 #breastfeeding#liquidgold#breastfeedinginpublic#breastfeedbabies#momblog
Weaning: it’s a process that begins with the first bit of sustenance other than mama’s milk. After more than 2 years of nursing, this weaning process is waning.
I got lucky: nursing was easy in the beginning. Later, we hit some big bumps: vasospasms (shooting pains, fun times), biting, pumping issues, and a nursing strike. We had major support & pushed through. After quitting pumping, from 12 months to 2 years, nursing for us has been small magical moments of connection.
For awhile, it’s been 2 minutes before the toddler is off to a project. Recently, our routine changed with some new developments, and the toddler stopped nursing. I’m ready, too, but want to acknowledge the wistfulness I feel—and, real-talk, hormones are making me feel some kinda way. ❤️
CHARCOAL BAR!! Top fav right here!! The top 5 benefits of charcoal bar soap: • Draws of dirt and impurities from DEEP within the skin. Over time, the build-up of toxins can cause your pores to become larger-- but charcoal soap doesn't just remove surface dirt and oil, it can pull out deep oils and clear the pores ! • It leaves your skin feeling soft rather than tight and dry. Most cleansers leave your skin feeling so dry afterwards, but charcoal has a proven ability to absorb harmful substances without stripping your skin. • It is ideal for ALL skin types! Some cleansers are good for oily skin, others for dry, others for "normal" but charcoal adapts to your skin's needs & provides the exact benefits it is seeking. • Exfoliates! You'll notice that the charcoal soap also helps to remove dead skin and leave your skin more receptive to toners and moisturizers afterwards. This is because of its exfoliation properties! • It contains 3 of my most ingredients ever : lavender + patchouli + WOLFBERRY. Yes, you read that right. Stop what you're doing and go google all the benefits of wolfberry and why you want as much of it in and on your body as possible. And lavender & patchouli, well - that kind of goes without saying. Skin-supporting powerhouses right there. That smell heavenly.
Alright friends -- add this bad boy to your next ER order & your skin will be happy!!
3 M o n t h s O l d 16.06.19 🌸 well another month has gone by so quick... look how you are growing! 😍 So in the third month you have started to enjoy your pram yipppeee, you have tried the sling but still not quite convinced!

You just love mummies milk and I’m so proud I’ve made it to 3 whole months of feeding you exclusively! To think I’m helping you grow, develop, build up your immune all with my magical milk it just blows my mind a little ... even tho it’s totally exhausting at times and keeps my hormones going a bit bonkers it’s a connection and bond that is so so special and like nothing else it’s hard to put into words ! 🥰🤱🏼 We went on our first girly shopping trip ( 2 shops lol!) and you didn’t cry which was amazing and we celebrated Daddy’s first Fathers Day ( even tho you cried most of the day but now realise it’s as you are starting to teeth 😬!) at your weigh in just last week you were 10lb 9 😍 You have the cutest of giggles and smiles! 😄 You have now started to look at Willow and notice things like lights on the ceiling, you are so alert and just love taking everything in ( like your Daddy!) 💙 So month 4 here we come eeeeekkkkkkkk!!!! #3monthswithyou#sophinamayroselonghurst#ourgorgeousgirl#prettywithpeonies
Because sometimes (okay most times), 🐪 day calls for a little *No-Bake Dark Chocolate Chunk Nut Butter Ball* action.
Doesn't hurt these babies are filled w/ hormone-balancing, postpartum-friendly ingredients like oats, flaxseed, dark chocolate, nut butter & coconut to boot. 👊🏻
Snag the recipe + deets in my profile. Happy no-baking friends. 🙌🏻
💕 TWENTY EIGHT WEEKS OLD 💕
I can’t get over that smile, she’s the happiest baby I’ve ever known!! There’s still no teeth, but I don’t think it’ll be long. We went to a playgroup today with Nate and she loved watching everything going on around her. Weaning is going well - she has her first chip last night and loved it (that’s my girl). I’m still breastfeeding on demand but she is going longer between feeds in the day time now but teething has really effected her sleep and she’s stirring from 5.30 onwards 😩 Despite the lack of sleep I adore her so very much💗
[New Blog Post] ... Here is the thing. Parts of depression and anxiety in pregnancy and as a new mother is normal. Motherhood is not always a dance on roses or immediately intuitive. As we transform from Maiden to Mother, there are oceans of joy, fulfilment, pride, strength and love but there is also grieving - grieving of the life that once was and the overwhelming uncertainty of the future and the freedom we used to know. I think it is crucial that we allow for the letting go - grieving the life that was, while we also embrace the endless joy and gifts of motherhood. Allow yourself to be fluid and move with the changes as they occur. This will prevent you from getting stuck in the emotions that can feel like chains and block the view of the magic that is simultaneously occurring. Read the full post, link in bio.

In honor of the feast of Corpus Christi coming up this Sunday! What a beautiful mystery that a woman's body can emulate our Lord's as He offers His Body to His children in each and every Eucharist. (And one reason I think it's kinda funny when people have an issue with nursing during Mass 😉)
“Maternity is a natural eucharist. To every child at her breast, the mother says: “Take ye and eat; this is my body; this is my blood. Unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood you shall not have life in you.” Our Divine Lord said: “As I live because of the Father, the living Father who has sent me, so he who eats me will live, in his turn, because of me” (John 6:58).
The mother says to her child: “As I live because of Christ, so you will live because of me.” As under the species of bread, day by day, Christ nourishes the Christian, so, drop by drop, the mother nourishes the child. As the Divine Eucharist gives immortality (“The man who eats this bread will live eternally,” John 6:59), so this human eucharist of motherhood is the guarantee of temporal life.”
Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
Keep the amazing posts coming @taylorkulik!
Posted @withrepost • @taylorkulik Comment below if this rings true for you, too👇⠀
I had no idea that my baby would be perfectly fine (or that it was perfectly normal) if I let her nap on me. I remember being so obsessed with her sleep in the first few months. All of the messages I was being exposed to (even from her pediatrician) were telling me that she needed to be able to sleep in her crib and put herself to sleep.⠀
But guess what? Nothing I tried worked (and yes, I did try some forms of “gentle” sleep training, but it always made me feel awful and I never got very far). ⠀
I wasn’t successful in changing my newborn (thankfully!), but I eventually changed myself. I became informed about normal business biological infant sleep patterns and found my instincts. I realized my instincts were more powerful than any information I had been consuming for the last 6 months. ⠀
So in case no one’s told you, it’s OKAY to let your baby sleep on you. You will not ruin your baby by letting her take naps in your arms. Please spread the word to other new mamas. ❤️
On a pas fait grand chose de ce premier mercredi de reprise : on est restés au lit, à se faire des câlins et des siestes ! Entre deux siestes, on s'est goinfré lui comme moi, avant de jouer un peu en bonne compagnie 🐶❤ et de repartir dormir avant le retour de Cloé 🙈 .
Bref, ça n'est pas encore aujourd'hui que je vais être à jour dans le linge ou le repassage mais vous savez quoi je m'en fiche ! Cette journée, elle est pour lui, pour eux (à partir d'août pour Cloé) et même si je ne suis pas à jour du linge avant la retraite, je profite de ces moments d'amour sans aucune culpabilité ❤ (Bon j'ai quand même changé tous les draps des lits, lancé et pendu deux lessives, et envoyé le robot aspi au front à ma place, juste histoire de !) .
Mes batteries sont pleines pour demain même si j'aurai aimé que cette journée ne s'arrête jamais ❤❤ .

Posting this pic of me breastfeeding Maddox in Vegas to let you guys know I just posted my travelling with two under two blog post talking all about flying with babies and what my must haves /recommendations were for staying in a hotel with two babes!
And also to share a few little things about BF in general.
1. I breastfeed in public: Yep, I whip my boob out in public without a cover to feed my child, even in Vegas - & im sharing it on SM in hopes of continuing to not only normalize BF🤱, but to normalize BF in public- because it’s crazy to me that women are still being shamed for feeding their child in public. To think this was ILLEGAL in many states at one point BLOWS MY MIND. & that feeding our babies cows milk was more normalized than giving our babe milk produced by our own bodies? IDK but that’s cray & hopefully by sharing I can empower other BF mamas, & women in general to let go of the shame and guilt other ppl may place upon you for choosing to breastfeed your baby.
2. I breastfeed 2 babies: i get this question SO often- how do I have enough milk to breastfeed my 19 month old & 7 month old baby? Our bodies are incredible and our milk supply is created based on a supply and demand system(for the avg person- not for ppl who are unable to produce milk) so my body adjusted and started generating a larger supply because I had 2 babies on my boobs all day- which made my body create more milk to meet the needs of the two of them! I also EAT enough calories and drink tons of water(essential for supply).
3. I plan to breastfeed my babies until they decide to start weaning themselves: Contrary to popular belief you don’t HAVE to wean your babies at 12M old. A lot of ppl do this , & that’s completely your choice, but I have chosen not to. Daxton loves boobie time & I didn’t want to take it away. It’s also recommended by the WHO to breastfeed until at least 24M minimum! No shame if you stopped before- just spreading awareness because the dairy industry will have you believe otherwise in order to profit off of converting babies to cows milk as early as possible!
Hope that was helpful! LOL & link is in bio for the blog post about travelling with 2 under 2! 🤗
