Breastfeeding tips!

In honor of Viv beating her fight weight (she was born 7 lbs 5 oz, Left hospital at 6 lbs 8 oz, and 2 weeks later she’s 8 lbs 4 oz) I thought I’d give you alllll the breastfeeding tips I give my new mom friends when they ask me. I am no nursing pro but I nursed LB 14 months and plan to nurse V as long as she needs. My kids have never had formula.

I warn you though, it’s hard and time consuming at first. And there’s no shame on deciding “this is tew much”. These tips are just to help if you’re pushing through like I did. And im no doctor or lactation consultant so yeah – consult them too ­čśé

Grovia Newborn Diapers

It’s been awhile since I took you through my cloth diaper stash for baby girl. This week I plan on giving a rundown on everything I have – but first I wanted to tell you about these ADORABLE Grovia newborn diapers that they gifted my baby girl. How cute are these?!

These adorable diapers are designed to fit babies 5-10 lbs. they have adjustable snaps to size down/up. Here is a comparison of them sized to different sizes.

It’s an all in on diaper so the soaker pad is sewn in. However unlike some newborn diapers, it’s only sewn on one end. I am guessing this will help it dry a lot faster.

It’s soakers are made of cotton and hemp and the soft interior is microfleece.

These are soooo cute and they look like they’ll fit baby girl perfectly from the time she is born for the first couple of months. Can’t wait to see her in them!
