Natural Parenting: 18 Months of Breastfeeding

Natural Parenting: 18 Months of Breastfeeding

Yes, I get it.  Some of you will think I’m nuts for nursing that long and others will totally understand.  For me, I have to say I’m proud and truly blessed.  Growing up for the past thirty years, I had constantly heard how my mom nursed both my sister and me for 18 months each and thought nothing … Continue reading

Daily Maintenance: Immune Boosters

Since it’s technically winter, though I think it has skipped over Big D and I’m not complaining one bit, I thought it would be a good idea to let you in on a few of my medicinal alternatives. While I was still prego with ‘Baby J’, a friend of mine told me about her daughter’s pediatrician, who had holistic approaches and happened to live close to … Continue reading
