Breastfeeding evolves with your baby

Breastfeeding evolves with your baby

Babies grow, and every day, they do different things; they develop, they advance their learning, they surprise us, and they constantly change. And you can watch them while this happens day by day. Maybe before becoming a mother, you didn’t know how babies will change month by month, but everyone knows that a newborn does not do the same things as a 6-month-old baby. What about breastfeeding? We are often asked if a specific breastfeeding behavior at a certain age…

International Day of the Midwife: Shortage of Professionals

International Day of the Midwife: Shortage of Professionals

Today marks the International Day of the Midwife! Congratulations to all midwives! Midwives are the best-qualified professionals to monitor pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care for low-risk births.

Is your breastfeeding journey not as pleasant as you dreamed it would be?

Is your breastfeeding journey not as pleasant as you dreamed it would be?

I want it, but I don’t Sometimes the breastfeeding journey with older children starts not to be as pleasant as we had imagined Months have passed. Maybe we started breastfeeding with complications, or maybe not, and our baby has grown and practices a lot of postures while taking the breast. Breastfeeding is more than established and entrenched, but something in us is changing: “Is asking for a tit again?”; “It seems like they are newly born again and demand it all…

Maternity reality check: How to raise your baby without getting lost

Maternity reality check: How to raise your baby without getting lost

Today I decided to write about parenting and the pressure we women have in relation to it, and I do so for the number of consultations of mothers absolutely exhausted and surpassed from the first year of their baby. Most of these mothers have babies between 18 months and 3 years old and describe exhaustion, overwhelm and absolute discomfort that has to do with the intensity of the baby’s demand, whether breast, arms or skin, during the day and/or during…
