All babies cry. But when an otherwise healthy baby suffers from extreme fussiness, often defined as crying for more than 3 hours per day, more than 3 days per week for at least 3 weeks, they may have a condition called colic.
From the time I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to breastfeed. It was probably due to a combination of reasons – but mostly because I had done a decent amount of research on breastfeeding for work, and I know a couple of great moms (who also happen to be Lactation Consultants) who had shared their passion for breastfeeding with me and who have very compelling stories.
I can’t believe I’m already 29 weeks pregnant, oh how quickly it goes by. Being in the third trimester is extremely exciting, but it’s also starting to bring up some fear and anxiety for sure.
This month we are honoring Pregnancy Awareness Month; therefore I find it only befitting to write a post relating to my pregnancy.
Unlike deciding on whether or not to breastfeed, choosing to make our own baby food was something I knew I would want to do before I even became pregnant. Not sure why, it’s just something I wanted to try as a new mom and am very happy we did.
