Back-to-Back Pregnancies

Are you expanding your family a little sooner than expected? Having another pregnancy before you have fully recovered from the last pregnancy , can be hard enough without adding stress. Although closely spaced pregnancies can take a physical toll on a mom-to-be who has just became a mom, there are a lot of things you can do to help your body be up to the challenge of back-to back- pregnancies.

Making soap out of breastmilk

Breastmilk soap is just soap made with your breastmilk mixed with non-GMO and organic oils, you will need to treat it as any other soap. Unlike other soap, this will have the special ingredient of your own milk in it. You can use it as often as you like for you and your whole family. 

Creating a Birth Plan

The birth of your baby will be the most memorable, life-changing, experiences of your life. You should take the time to think through the hopes and desires for the big day by creating a birth plan.

Nutrition while Breastfeeding

Your nutrition during breastfeeding isn’t affected by your diet unless you’re eating habits are inadequate.  You do need to be sure to take in enough calories and water for your body to produce adequate milk.  Your baby may react a different way to certain foods, but if you pay attention to how your baby responds, you can figure out what foods to avoid.
