Since this is World Breastfeeding Week, let’s take a moment to reflect that in other parts of the world, nursing without a cover wouldn’t even be a debate.
I couldn't breastfeed my babies. In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, I'm sharing my story about the decision I made.
For the first six months of my son's life, he was exclusively breastfed. No formula, no solids, no rice cereal. Just me. During the second half of the year, we added organic foods to his diet. I pureed sweet...
I sit here typing this, 38 weeks pregnant with my third child, munching on two servings of Trader Joe's mini chicken tacos and doing some needed post-baby research. There are so many articles suggesting how to prepare for the arrival...
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it's good timing, because I have boobs on the brain. Namely, my own boobs. (Although I'm sure yours are quite nice.) Considering their utility alone, my boobs have served me well over...

Most of my parenting life is spent in the weeds. You know them, I'm sure. Probably you're in them right now. They wrap around you, weaving fatigue and loneliness with joy and delight, boredom and monotony with wonder and...
Starting with maternity clothes, new motherhood is a slow decline into a netherworld of "fashion." Cool and tailored is out, washable and comfy is in. And breastfeeding just adds to the uncool criterion. Sure, some mothers manage to look clean...
When I had my son 20 short months ago, I knew I wanted to breastfeed him. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. He was born early and had to stay in the hospital for two weeks...
