I guess this month is not my month even tough MY birthday month is this month!

last Sunday I went to the ER because I started feeling flu like symptoms. No we when I get sick I can usually deal with the feeling I don’t complaint much. BUT it was not like that this tome around. I felt so bad. My body was aching,head was hurting,chills, and fever. I had just gone to church that morning so in my head  thinking this is Gods way of punishing me for not going like I should be Lol but that’s another story. The thing that was different about all the other times I felt ill was that my left breast was hurting as well. I started to feel for lumps but found none. The lady who took care of me said I didn’t have the flu or mastitis. She dismissed it as the underwire on my bra might be the one to blame. She still prescribed tamiflu just in case my symptoms got worse. I heard tamiflu was not safe to take while Breastfeeding so you could already imagine my dilemma. I just took Tylenol for the body aches and headache. they helped a bit but really all I wanted to do was sleep so I basically spend the night over my moms house so she could watch the kids since tee works. She was so helpful I got a lot of rest.my breast was still hurting and I actually found a little lump Monday so I made an appointment for Tuesday at my regular doctor to make sure it wasn’t something to be really worried about. My doctor told me it was mastitis and that is why I felt the way I did she prescribed me some medicine and I asked her like 15 times if it was safe to take while Breastfeeding and not once did she say no lol (I am very paranoid if you can’t tell) she said to keep y left breast empty and to massage it. I have to  take the pills every 6 hrs. Which has proved to be very tricky for me Now Noah has an ear infection so his on antibiotics as well. I feel better now those two days I felt horrible!

anyways my birthday is this coming up Monday!

6 Month Breastfeeding Update

So can you believe it has been 6 months? I can’t! 

Let me just say that it has been such a wonderful experience. Its been kind of hard but I love it.

Anyways let’s get to it. 

Kason eats every two-three hours I know maybe he should be eating every four hours or more but this works for us. I have been giving him solids now so sometimes he can go a little longer. My breast no longer get engorge like they use to (thank God) they look like they use to lol. 

When I’m at work I pump every 2-3 hours. I pump about 8 oz both combine. I was given a electric breast pump so I get most of my milk out. Before I was using a manual pump so it was a bit hard to get it out. My left breast gives me less milk when pumping but when Kason is latched on he gets out a lot more. My right one has always been my girl lol to her it does not matter if it’s the pump or Kason she does not discriminate! I have all my stash at my mothers house because she has a refrigerator outside (I forgot what it’s called) 

I’ve been able to eat spicy stuff without bothering Kason. I don’t eat it all the time. I try to stay away from sweets but snickers always call my name along with sodas. I however completely stay away from sodas! I stick to water if I want something sweet to drink I drink orange juice. I have recently started drinking V8 and I like it. I eat veggies a lot for some reason I don’t really eat fruit. I take vitamins as well.

I use to have this huge problem with finding the perfect nursing pads (who would have thought that would be one of my problems right) but I’ve narrowed them down to two, my ultimate favorite one is Well Beginnings Nursing Pads and my second favorite ones are from Lasinoh. I’ve tried Johnson’s, target brand, and this other one I forget the  name but they were not for me. The reason why I love those is because both of them stay in place they are not constantly moving around. The reason being that they have not just one sticky part but two so it really keeps them in place. I wear my regular bras the nurses bras to me were not worth it. 

initially my goal was just to breastfeeding for 6months but that has changed. I will continue to breastfeed him until he can drink whole milk. Now I know some people think it’s best to keep Breastfeeding even after they start to drink whole milk but that’s where I think I will stop unless something changes my kind that’s where I stand. 

I’ve gotten sick a couple of times but I’ve continues to breastfeed him he has gotten sick as well but not for long.

I was told by a couple of people that I would not be able to breastfeed him for long that I was just going to have to give it up. I believe it for a whole but thanks to a couple of people I kept going. It’s hard and painful at first but it gets better.

I think that’s all for this post  said it my last post wether you’re Breastfeeding or not just know that you are doing what you think is best. Don’t let other people tell you otherwise.

IM BACK!!!

IM 100% BACK!!!

I have finished my classes and my next semester does not start till next march i believe!!! I passed both of my classes thank God!

I am glad i finished because now i can actually dedicate time to my blog.

I have some things i need to share after being in my apartment for almost a year i am finally getting around to decorating and i want to share that with you guys. I am starting by room. My first project is my kitchen/dinning room, 2nd. living room, 3rd. Rest room, 4th. Noahs room, and lastly our room.

I am not sure what i am doing with Noahs room but i will be letting him pick out a theme. Since we share rooms with Kason i plan on making him his own little space and decorating that our room is pretty big so i have a lot to work with.

 

Am I going bald!?!?!

So I knew this was coming. Since it didn’t happen earlier I thought that i was good to go! But it was all a lie!!! A lie I tell you! 

(DRAMATIC PAUSE) 

I’m losing my hair!!!! I’ve been loosing it since Kason turned three months. I dislike it so much. Every time I brush or take a shower there’s hair everywhere! 

My mom and other people told me its normal and I know it is but if you guys were to see how mu

ch of it I have in my hand by the end of my shower or routine brushing session yall would probably be like holly molly.

 

 

I’ve been taking vitamins and my iron to see if that helps but I don’t think it will. 

 

 

Hopefully it does something because I constantly have to to be cleaning to get the hair out so it wont bug Kason or Noah.

He actually rolled over once but hasn’t done it since

He had his first apple

He loves to play with his toes and suck on his big toe

He has learned to suck on his thumb (cutest thing ever)

He still continues to scream and squeal

We have scream competitions (ofcourse im not actually screaming)

He “talks” way more now

Cloth diapers, school, and rashes

I got my cloth diapers already! I finally washed them yesterday and i will be using them today i know for a fact that they won’t last me till tomorrow lol but its okay. Remember i only got 5 so far. I will take pictures of him wearing them and post them later so wish us luck!

School is going awesome. I must admit i was putting things off and i had to remind my self that the classes were paid with my OWN money so if i don’t  do what i am suppose to do thats money going down the drain. I am taking “Understanding Human Behavior” and i like it. It gives you advice or more like tips on how to deal with certain patients that i will encounter once i become an MA.

Rashes oh Lordy Lord Kason gets one rash after another. He recently has this “rash” on his face its just red sometimes it goes away and but once he starts messing with it, it comes back. His skin is so dry i use avenno but i think that makes it worse. Any suggestions mommys out there? He also has this rash on his neck his grandma told me to put powder she said its most likely because he sweats and since he has rolls for days lol it might irritate him. If they don’t get better by next week i will be taking him to his pediatrician.

I would post some adorable pictures but I’m working hard hhhmmmmmmhh… Okay I’m not working that hard lol but my phone is dying so I’ll do it on my next post. 

Oh i will also be doing Friday Favorites (mommy edition) at the end of each month. I am trying out some new stuff and i will be sharing my opinions:) Some may or may not be mommy or kid related but most of them will.
