It’s been a long time!

Hi Mamis!

So the summer has passed us by (was it ever really even here?) and I’m still breastfeeding…

STILL!

The good news is that it’s down to 2x a day

The bad news is that my breasts are still not mine

I’m trying to wean on my daughter’s time table but man…I’m dying to get my boobs back!

While this happens I promise to keep updating my blog (even when life gets in the way) and I’m thinking of expanding this internet space of mine to include more product reviews, raves, bashes, and Mami life hacks…what do you all think?

Let me know Mamis…

Have a great afternoon ๐Ÿ™‚

Long time no post!

Hi Mamis…

 

Sorry for not posting in a while…I’m actually in the process of revamping the blog…stay tuned for the new format, I think you’re going to like it!

And even though I missed posting something for Mother’s Day (really…every day should be Mother’s Day but that’s a separate post)…below is picture reminding each and everyone of you of your importance ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great day Mamis!!!

Happy New Year Mamis! 2014 and I’m still breastfeeding!

Happy New Year!

2014 is here and I am still breastfeeding (I can’t believe it!). I didn’t think I’d be doing it for this long, I was certain that once meatball started solids, she’d prefer real food to mama’s milk but nope! She still loves to nurse whenever I am near, and she loves to nurse herself to sleep.

A lot of people ask me why I’m still doing it, or rather they tell me I need to stop (family members included -_-) and all I say is that I don’t have any plans on weaning my daughter. I want her to go off the boob at her own pace. Now let me just say that this is what WORKS for us and is not necessarily what everyone should do. Always assess your situation, desire and need and take it from there.

Nursing a toddler is not easy, it gets annoying and sometimes I wonder when I will get my boobs back, but for me…it’s just not something I plan to give up until she goes to college……KIDDING!!! LOL KIDDING!!!!!

Are any of you mamis still nursing past 6 months? 1 year? More? Did you wean? Why? Sound off on the comments mamis!

MUAHZZZZZ

Have a great evening ๐Ÿ™‚

Even the Pope approves

Good morning Mamis

Even if you’re not Catholic or religious for the matter you have to admit that Pope Francis is very different than his predecessors. He’s shaking up the Vatican by living modestly and making bold statements. He’s Time magazine’s Person of the Year and with good reason. I like him a lot. He was already cool in my book, but then he came out and defended a woman’s right to breastfeed in public…even at the Vatican. Smart guy!

YES POPE FRANCIS AKA POPE AWESOME!!! Read the article here.

Remember mamis..breastfeeding in public is a choice, you don’t have to do it if you don’t feel comfortable but isn’t it nice to know that major world figures are coming forth and normalizing breastfeeding? I’ve done it myself on more than one occasion and I’ve never gotten a negative reaction but then again, I don’t care either way. Anyhoot…a more detailed post on that later…in the meanwhile…..

Have a great weekend and eeekkksss!!! 5 days until Christmas (or 4 if you are Latina/o hee hee)

XOXO

Big Latch On NYC 2013

Happy Announcement:

Happy World Breastfeeding week mamis!!!! It’s a week to celebrate and educate the masses on how wonderful, natural and important breastfeeding is!!!!

Ok so besides it being a great week for nursing mamis, I am super excited for this upcoming Saturday 8/3/13 for 2 reasons.

1. I’m participating in the Big Latch On (think of a flash mob of women breastfeeding their children) with meatball. We get to normalize breastfeeding and meet other nursing mamis and babies whohooo!!!

2. I’m going to see Beyoncรฉ in concert. (Totally unrelated but not really since she nursed Blue Ivy, I consider it part of my breastfeeding week celebrations lol.)

Anyone interested in joining me for the Big Latch on event please visit the Big Latch On page.

I hope I get to see and meet some mami readers at Inwood Hill Park this Saturday August 3rd at 10am!!!! Look for me I’ll be wearing a red shirt ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m back and still pumping

Hi mamis!

It’s been a loooong time since I’ve posted. Who says the summer slows things down?

Meatball has been keeping me very busy, I recently got to spend 2 whole weeks with her and it was amazing (a lot of work, but amazing).ย  Now that I’m back at work, it dawned on me.

I’ve been pumping for a year!!! For 52 weeks I’ve been going to my lactation room 2x a day, Monday through Friday. Without fail. I’ve pumped at restaurants, bathrooms, moving cars and even on the northeast regional express Amtrak train (that was something else).ย  It’s been challenging and frustrating at times, but I’m happy that I kept (and am keeping) up with it. Meatball is thriving, and she shows no signs of letting the boob go anytime soon. So I’ll keep my keys to the lactation room (which has been moved to my floor and is super close to my cubicle!) and keep on pumping!

Happy Mother’s Day/Feliz Dia de las Madres

Happy Mother’s day to all my dedicated mamis out there! This isn’t the easiest job in the world but it certainly has the best rewards. Enjoy the day!

Feliz dia de las madres a todas las mamis dedicadas! No es facil trabajo hacer mami pero tiene el mejor pago. Disfruten de su dia!
