Taking an unplanned, last minute trip to the beach for a couple days to visit family. And it wasn’t until I started frantically throwing things into a suitcase this morning that I realized that I do not remember how to pack a suitcase for a baby. And for a baby at the beach at that! 😬😬 What am I forgetting mamas? I have diapers and wipes. I mean the rest should pretty much sort itself out, right?! Send help! And wine. Lots of wine.
Did you know that while every other organ in the body is fully formed when a person is born, and simply gets bigger as the body gets bigger, the brain actually takes a full 18 years to grow.
Then, once it’s fully formed, it continues to mature until the day the person dies.
This basically means that you don’t have to be stuck in old or wrong thought patterns. Your brain is still maturing, so you can still mature in your thinking. 🌺
▪Infusiones y bebés▪
Es heavy como muchas veces la sociedad nos presiona para darle a nuestros bebés "remedios caseros", los "a mi me funcionó". El problema es que muuuuchas veces la información en torno a esos remedios caseros es super desactualizada y puede tener consecuencias graves en nuestros bebés.
Las infusiones son uno de los remedios mas comunes. Si alguien grande está resfriado, té de algo. Si le duele la guatita, te de otra cosa. Si tiene poca energía, té.
El problema acá es cuando lo mismo se quiere aplicar a los bebes. Es ahi donde empieza la eterna pelea con tu mamá o suegra, porque ella le quiere dar té de "x", porque ella le daba a sus hijos y nunca les pasó nada.
Lamentablemente no todos los efectos de dar infusiones a los bebés son inmediatas. ▪Por que no dar infusiones a un/a bebé▪
Las infusiones pueden causar intoxicación porque no hay una "medida" para darle a bebés y niños/as. No existe una cantidad aceptada y/o avalada. Además de que la tolerancia de cada bebé a ciertas cosas es variable.
Las infusiones pueden impedir la correcta absorción de hierro y otros metales, mientras que otras pueden actuar como depresor neurológico, haciendo que el bebé pueda eatar somnoliento, tener convulsiones o entrar en estado de coma, según la dosis que se le de.
Además las infusiones tienen 0 valor nutricional, por lo que son totalmente innecesarias.
Entidades recomiendan no dar infusiones a niños y niñas menores de 5 años para evitar cualquiera de los peligros nombrados anteriormente ❤
Un abrazo 😊
I had the craziest morning. One of those days where my daughter took 45minutes to eat one fried egg 🤦🏽♀️ and I was constantly telling her to hurry up. I hate rushing, it always leaves me feeling very frazzled.
A few weeks ago @iusedtobefunnowimamum and I won tickets to a Fairy Workshop at @maddymagoofourways For some reason I thought it was at Fourways Mall 🙈 so I only got to the correct venue 25minutes late 🙈🙈🙈 but it was WONDERFUL!!!! I kinda wished that I had went alone 😂😂😂 The fairy house building looked so fun (I say looked because I wasn’t allowed to help 😭😜) and it was lovely to meet Mariam in person. 😘
(#ad ) I'm sure you've noticed by now how I'm into my morning routines- a bit of a pamper every chance I can get, as my days are so full being a working mom! Wake up & first thing: taking my temperature with @NaturalCycles, then coffee, shower moisturiser, and another coffee! It's so great to know my my bodies cycles( when to expect PMS, if I'm fertile or ovulating). Because all of this info is so easily at hand @NaturalCycles has definitely enhanced my wellbeing and quality of life. I recommend it as a non hormonal natural contraception alternative, and you can become a Cycler like me now if you go to the link in my bio or have a look at my story. In fact why not take advantage of the free gifts and order a yearly subscription for 39.99 GBP which includes the thermometer?

The bond. This is us everyday.24/7. I can never get enough of him. Cuddling him. Kissing him. I dont know if it's mutual tho. Because everytime I cuddle him, he would escape from my cuddle. And everytime I kiss him, he's very annoyed and sometimes screaming. Damn this baby is playing hard to get.
Of course when I'm occupied, he makes a move. Leans on me. Pulls my hair. Climbs my tummy or squeezes my arms. He'll do anything to get my attention. But once he gets my attention, he'll run away to avoid me cuddling him. He's such a tease smh...
But yesterday I got the sweetest surprise ever. One normal afternoon. I had just started my computer to do some work. He came to me, leaned on me. I was like...yeah right baby you want my attention and try to keep me away from my computer. I thought he would pull my hair or jump on my tummy. But he didnt...He was leaning on me so close to my face and suddenly, out of the blue he gently kissed my cheek then smile. I was stunned, hard to believe what had just happened. My baby kissed me for the first time. What have I done to deserve it? He must be loving me that much that he figured out way to express it. Before I recovered from my shock, he gave me another kiss on my lips and ran away laughing. Ohh boy, he's always such a tease.
Having my baby kiss me back is the greatest feeling ever. So precious experience that nothing compares.
Today, I got another spontaneous kiss on my cheek. Yay!! So much winning!! Love you my son.
"A beat the table o" "sorry Mo!" This is followed by plenty kisses, rubbing of the head and sobbing from the person who won't stop "wakaring" about 😂
Mothers do all kinds of things to stop their children from crying. I particularly enjoy this one. It's just amazing to watch the emotions and reactions from the child.
I saw many mothers do this when growing up, now I am practicing it. Times have changed ❤
Booty 🍑 day behind me, team call in the books, now it’s prep time for race day! The #bluestarblitz will make number ✌🏼 for the 2018 season, and we’ve already got our April line-up set >> Carolina Spartan Sprint 4/7 + Come See Me 5K 4/14
I never thought I’d be running races, much less 2 in a single week. I’ve come a long way since my first one, but I know there’s so much further to go. Excited to see where it all goes from here. 💖
It’s me and YOU boo! I at one time considered taking up residence in this room! May I reminded that the most memorable days end with the dirtiest clothes. 👉🏽If that’s the case we have a LOT of memorable days!!! For all those who are tackling Mount Clothesmore today...👊🏽Strong work! #justadayinthelifeofamom
👩👧Kleine Grundlagenrunde mit Schnupfennase statt Ablaufen der Halbmarathon Strecke heute...das Training lief im Herbst und Winter so mega gut, dass es schon schade ist, dass ich kaum fit war im Frühjahr. Aber jetzt wo alle ambitionierten Erwartungen weg sind, lässt es sich vielleicht wenigstens entspannt lächeln - und irgendwie läuft sich‘s schon immer!
Blog: We are chatting about Baby food, Allergies, the Colours of The Rainbow, The Spice of Life and all in between. We got inspiration from all the mamas that we follow and some personal faves from the web. There is a lot of great material out there so let’s get you started with a few tips and shout-outs we think you’ll enjoy reading as much as we do.
There’s an army of mamas making amazing baby food and teaching us all how to up our game. It is winter’s last breath so get ready for fun making and sharing all those num num spoonfuls from spring’s fresh produce.
We love following these mamas on Instagram: @symplynourished , @motherhoodandmeals and @lunchesandlittles . Photo Credit by "My Kids Lick the Bowl Blog". Let us know, who are you following for baby recipes? #blogged#linkinbio#babyfood
Last night we squeezed into a tiny space for at least two hours and dreamed and planned and laughed till we cried... till one of us puked. I’d admit this little adventure was extremely selfish but this momma also knows what her people need... So thankful for a man who sees it too and continues to give wings to my dreams. ♡
Would love some tips on ways you mommas recharge and reconnect your crew?
