Breastfeeding: How I Manage My Milk Oversupply

I’ve recently read an article about “what it’s like to be a mom who produces too much breastmilk“. I was quite surprised when reading the headline because I find this to be a topic which hardly gets any attention. Being a mother who produces more breastmilk than my babies need(ed), I thought that I’d share…

Carry Them Close: About Babywearing

  When I had the little bird I hadn’t looked into the different possibilities on how I could wear my baby. I had received a baby carrier as a hand me down and hadn’t checked how to use it until I realised that my baby liked to be carried around.  The carrier turned out to…

How I Prepared for Childbirth (incl. Postpartum)

  Recently, I read a post that questioned the whole idea about writing a birth plan; arguing with the fact that childbirth is an event which can’t be planned. Although I agree with the latter – childbirth is indeed an event where we don’t know upfront which exact course it’ll take ( I guess that my first birth…

I was not so much looking for information regarding the pregnancy (it’s all on the web, right ?) but wanted us to take this as an opportunity to get together into the whole “pregnancy/baby/birth/postpartum“ groove.

My First Birth Story

I have really been struggling with writing the birth story of the little bird. First, I felt too emotional. Then I just got over it but to be honest, the most difficult part were not my personal feelings but the fact that the whole experience felt similar to watching one of those twisted movies.

My Milky Way Guide

From the beginning, breastfeeding has been a non-problematic topic for me. I already produced pre-milk before my baby was born. The real milk kicked in one day after the little bird’s birth. A couple of  days later, the nurses said that I could provide milk for some for other mothers. That strong was my milk…
