You’re Offended? So F***ing What.

I am offended when I am driving down the street and I see the person in front of me has hung a pair of testicles from the back of their car. I am offended by littering. I am offended by cigarette smoke. I am offended by people playing loud music in their car disrupting my peaceful day. I am offended by …

A Love Story by guest blogger Mama Bean

I don’t remember the first time that I breastfed my daughter. I remember the first time that I held her; her little body warm and slimy against my skin after a grueling 44 hours of labour.  I remember her being placed on my chest and watching, as if through goggles, as her little head turned in search of my nipple.  …

The LC’s all said his latch was fine, but my milk didn’t come in for five days, and he wasn’t transferring. I found out (after learning what it even was) that he has a tongue tie. …

Self-Care? Yeah, Right.

Self-care is definitely one of those things that is easier said than done. Even the most well intentioned people set out to make time for themselves and create a healthy mind and body, but still fall short at the mercy of this pressure cooker called motherhood.

A Baby’s Plea by guest blogger Tom M.

You tell me that I’m precious, but yet you disagree, when mommy dares in public, to give her breast to me. You tell my mom to cover as I attempt to feed, a selfish proposition, discomfort guaranteed! You point her to the toilets, say do your feeding there, a germ infested bathroom, so nice of you to care! To you …
