    Holidaying With Kids And a Breastfed Baby ....... Emily's expectations versus reality

    Holidaying with kids is…how can I put this? It’s…well, let’s just say it’s different to previous holidays you may have taken with friends or as a couple without kids.

  7. Someone to Mother YOU - Stop Putting Yourself Last!

    Someone to Mother YOU - Stop Putting Yourself Last!
    I see many women ( both new and experienced mothers) who set themselves extreme standards of nurturing and housework yet completely neglect their own well-being. It seems to be a reflection of the expectation (either external or self-imposed) that now you have a child, you don’t matter. Of course a helpless baby needs to have his needs met but a hungry mum, affected by low blood sugar and exhaustion isn’t up to making good decisions or meeting her baby’s needs

    When It's Your Baby, Not You Screwing things up

    Unrealistic expectations, pressure to be the perfect mum and too many ‘rules’ are making mums overthink – and blame themselves when they don’t have a ‘good’ baby.

  11. Busting the Booby Traps of Low Milk Supply

    Busting the Booby Traps of Low Milk Supply
    While there are certainly conditions that may create challenges to breast-milk supply, such as PCOS, diabetes, retained placenta, low thyroid or iron levels and a condition called Insufficient Glandular Tissue (Breast Hypoplasia: red flags include a lack of breast development during puberty and pregnancy and/or tubular shaped breasts that are widely spaced), there are also a lot of booby traps around low supply that have mothers reaching for the bottle. Even if you have a medical condition that means you are having a hard time, you don’t need to ditch your nursing bra just yet.

  13. Galactagogues.. past and present By Emily Brittingham, Breastfeeding Counsellor

    Galactagogues.. past and present By Emily Brittingham, Breastfeeding Counsellor
    Derived from ancient Greek language where ‘galacta’ means milk and ‘algogos’ mean leading, a galactagogue is a substance that helps to lead milk from the breast. Galactagogues aim to build, maintain or enhance milk supply in breastfeeding women. You may also hear galactagogues referred to as lactogenic substances. There is evidence to suggest that galactagogues and lactogenic substances have been used for thousands of years, or more accurately, from the very beginning of time.

    Mastitis - what you really need to know
    Suddenly feeling 'fluey'? Emotional and teary? And you have a hot sore breast? Feeling 'fluey' any time when you are breastfeeding is a warning sign that you could be coming down with mastitis, an inflammation of the breast that may or may not also be infected. Symptoms of mastitis can hit suddenly and hard: one minute you feel just fine and the next you feel shattered and aching all over with chills and a fever.
