Why I’ve Never Written A Birth Plan And Never Will

When I was pregnant the first time around I remember being asked quite early on to write out my birth plan. I recall looking at the midwife and telling her that whatever happens, happens. She replied with that I needed to at least write something down as a guide so I simply put ‘do what is needed‘. Thing is, I’m a realist. I know things in life don’t always go as expected, I know that setting up a huge plan can end in disappoint if something changes and I wanted to keep an open mind about the labour and birth.

A Year of Breastfeeding

We made it to a year of breastfeeding and I just want to celebrate that fact. I listed making it to a year as one of my 9 things I wanted to do differently with my second child in this post mostly because I loved breastfeeding Jake and was so upset when we had to give up due to him biting (and drawing blood!) I don’t know why else a year was in my mind, I guess it just felt like a big accomplishment especially with breastfeeding rates being so low in this country.

Breastfeeding and Teething

Breastfeeding and teething are topics that are covered quite a bit in articles and via parenting sites. We usually talk about the two separately to cover all the issues that can crop up but I think sometimes we overlook the fact that teething can impact breastfeeding.

Just when you think you’ve overcome the latch issues, you’ve got your boobs balanced out perfectly, you’ve learnt how often you need to change your breast pads and you have a good natural rhythm with your little treasure, they begin to sprout those teeth!
