Breastfeeding support

When it came to breastfeeding I found it really tough and not easy at all. I did get quite stressed over it, making sure I expressed every 8 to 12 times a day when my son was first born, and kept trying to breastfeed my son directly, but he never latched on.

For me when it comes to breastfeeding I think it should come down to personal choice, and what works for you and your baby.

Check these videos talking about breastfeeding, and some tips and advice.

Check out Emily Morris channel as she does loads of parenting videos, aswell as other subjects, I found her videos really helpful.

This is Lulastic Hippyshake, this Youtuber does videos about living in a Yurt in New Zealand, she talks about why she has continued on to breastfeed her child.

The advice I got from my Health Advisor was not to stress over breastfeeding but it is important that I enjoyed my baby and if I wanted to stop it was my choice.

I continued for a whole month to express milk and breastfeed but then stopped. I know some will frown upon that, but it was my choice, and as long my son was getting the nutrients he needed that was important.

If I had known then what I know now, I would have gotten counselling and further support when it came to breastfeeding to help me as I took it for grunted before my son was born of how difficult it would be and would have prepared myself better.

I would love to hear other people’s stories and how hard it was for you, did you find it easy or hard? What did you do to get help? I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Toilet Training videos

Check out these videos I discovered and found really interesting if you to are toilet training your child.

It can be a frustrating time for you and your little on, so getting tips and advice can work a treat, and knowing you aren’t alone can be comforting too.

The video above is worth watching as it talks about Elimination Communication, which some may call potty training from birth, but there is more to it than that. Watch the video above to find out if this is for you.

I found another video by Mom’s a mess, about how she potty trained her two year old son.

We are still going through the process but we keep trying and I think by continuing to keep changing him even when he has an accident in the bathroom is getting the message, that the toilet is where you go now if you need a wee or a pooh.

I did worry constantly about him having accidents but I have come to realise it is all part of the process and I just need to be patient and allow my son to learn in his own time.

I hope you find these helpful. I also found some videos on Potty Training on Channel mum website.

Potty to Toilet Training

We have now decided to toilet train Henry rather than the Potty as it wasn’t going well and our son is still have accidents. We spoke to the Occupational Therapist who recommended the method to us.

When in doors he wears pants no nappy, so even if he does have an accident we take him upstairs to the toilet so he begins to make association and go through the method of him flushing the chain and washing his hands, so it becomes more structured routine.

Children with development delay can take longer to train. I felt so relieved now we don’t need to worry about the potty, and fingers crossed we will have better success.

I have come across some more helpful videos. Check this one out I watched yesterday about potty training.

I hope you find this helpful too.

Let me know if you have any tips and advice on toilet training I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Sextuplets

I thought having one child was challenging enough, but when watching this video of the Sextuplets at 30, whom were born in 1983 it made me realise I have nothing to complain about.

Here is the video about the first Sextuplet girls, the Walton’s of them turning 30.

Truly inspiring and that miracles can happen.
