Mesh feeder:) 

I suggested the other day to put frozen cubes of breastmilk in a feeder… But not everyone knows where the feeder came from. With my 13 year old daughter, I bought one of the original ones. At first I use it with breastmilk but later down the line you can put anything frozen in it… Frozen peas/corn/strawberries 🙂 but breastmilk is best 😍

Why the Babysafe Feeder was invented: 
“I nearly lost my son due to him choking on a teething biscuit.”      

The BABY SAFE FEEDER™ was invented because parents almost lost their 9 month old son due to him choking on a piece of food that was supposed to be safe to give a baby. Matthew was sitting in his high chair next to his mom and dad. He was experiencing so much discomfort cutting his teeth through, that His dad gave him a teething biscuit. Since he had a couple teeth he was able to get a chunk of that biscuit bitten off and choked on it. It got lodged in his throat and he started to turn blue because he could not get any oxygen. Fortunately, his parents were right there to see him and realized Matthew was in trouble. After all normal methods to get it out failed, his dad was able to dig down into his throat several times and finally got the piece of food out.
If his parents had been in the next room, on the telephone, doing dishes or driving the car with him in the back seat, they would have lost him. Matthew never made a sound because his airway was blocked. He had no way to let us know that he was choking.
After 12 years of research, development and testing the BABY SAFE FEEDER™ was invented and patented. It is the “better way” and has been used by thousands of babies. The parents/founders have received so many letters, pictures, comments and testimonials from satisfied parents all saying the same thing, “Why didn’t you invent it sooner?” “We love it.” “We wouldn’t think of being with out it now that we know it is available.”

Happy Birthday to my eldest Purpose, Emma Leigh Anne! 

This girl is such a blessing to me. She’s such a smart, beautiful, unique young lady. Her personality impresses me. She will never know how much I love her, but I’m going to spend my life trying to show her. I’m so so proud to call her my eldest Purpose.

I’m proud of her. I love you so much, Emma. I hope you have a wonderful 14th birthday 💜

Find Successes!

Find the successes in your breastfeeding. If your baby fed well once that day – that is a success. If you are still committed to breastfeeding at the end of the day – that is a success. Concentrate on that success. A good IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) or breastfeeding counselor will help you to find and celebrate the successes in your day. Work on the careplan that you have created with your IBCLC and remember that every skill takes practice. If you worked on new latching techniques in the session give yourself time for those new techniques to become more natural and easier for you. Everyone falls in the early days, but with the right support it gets better, and better.
