#ImMe … Same, Same But Different

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.

About Taking Time

I hope you don’t mind that it’s been a little bit silently here on the blog. Settling in as a family of four and enjoying these precious moments has taken all my time…well, and then there was also our move to Panama; but that is another story (more to come soon)! Although I love writing…

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.

Motherhood: Let’s Talk About Parenting…Or Not

There is one thing about motherhood and parenting that amazes me over and over again. Before becoming a mother, I never would have thought that people are exposed to this one thing once they become parents. Opinions. People’s opinions.
