Mamas, while this would be a wonderful sight to see when we open our freezers, this is not the norm! Most women are able to express enough to have a few extra bags of milk in their freezer in case it’s needed. Some may have several bags that they have worked for months on saving for when they return to work. And some women aren’t able to save any because their babies need all they have now. These types of images with hundreds and thousands of ounces of milk saved are not at all in the realm of possibility for the majority of women and I feel it’s important to remind you of that.
The love a mother has for her baby will never be quantified by how many ounces of milk she has in her freezer!

Sleep is a BIG topic for new parents. The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends that babies sleep in the same room with their parents for the first year of life. Being in close proximity to your baby allows you to respond to his needs quickly and reduces the risk of SIDS. Research also shows that parents who sleep near their babies actually get more sleep than those who do not.

Our sweet boy is 16 months old. ❤️He's walking everywhere, talking more every day and sticking his tongue out while concentrating. 😂 He loves his "100 word" books, the cat, walks in the carrier, & strawberries. #cadelyle1year Could this age be any sweeter? #chicagobaby#babystagram#16monthsold
