10 Breastfeeding Tips For After A C-Section

Breastfeeding Tips For After Your C-Section - Granolaish.com #CAM2014

Some people, maybe even your doctor, will try to tell you you're going to fail at breastfeeding because of your c-section. That's absolutely not necessarily true. I am not trying to say that there aren't challenges. Sure, it's hard to breastfeed and recover from major surgery, but it is not insurmountable. With some patience, commitment, support, and education most women should be able to successfully breastfeed their babies born by c-sections. Sunshine and I faced a lot of odds because I had a … [Read more...]

In honor of C-Section Awareness Month (it's this month) I thought I'd share some of my c-section recovery tips to hopefully make your life a bit easier. 1. Know your resources! The internet is a vast sea of information, so find a few good sources you can have on hand when questions come up before (if planned) and after surgery. A few examples are: your friends, a local Moms group, your local ICAN chapter, Mayo Clinic (for basic medical info and recovery tips), and this site called … [Read more...]

Buttons Cloth Diapers Giveaway and Review

Buttons Cloth Diaper Review and Giveaway from Granolaish.com 04/05-04/12

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. All thoughts and opinions are honest and my own. I am always searching for new cloth diapers to try, and my most recent trial was with Buttons Cloth Diapers. Buttons are a cover and insert system that snap directly into the PUL diaper cover. I consider it an all in two system much like GroVia and Best Bottoms. I received a one-size diaper cover and daytime insert to review. As you can see below, the one-size cover has 3 different rise … [Read more...]

fruit.0 Organic Fruit Snacks Review and Mango, Pear, Pineapple Jerk Chicken Recipe

fruit.0 Review & Mango, Pear, Pineapple Jerk Chicken Recipe from Granolaish.com

**I received fruit.0 organic fruit snacks to facilitate this review. All opinions are honest and my own.** As a nursing Mom I am always looking for healthy snacks that I can enjoy while chasing my toddler around. Sunshine takes a lot of energy to keep up with, and I am constantly on the go. It's a bonus if the snacks also work for her since it means I only have to prepare one meal as opposed to two. I really enjoyed experimenting with fruit.0 organic fruit snacks! So what is fruit.0? It's a … [Read more...]

Tidy Books Kids Bookcase Review: Sunshine’s New Reading Nook

Tidy Books Kids Bookcase - Review from Granolaish.com

**I received a Tidy Books bookcase to facilitate this review. All opinions are honest and my own.** Sunshine's "playroom" is actually the corner of our living room. She has two bookcases full of books in her bedroom, but somehow she still is acquiring books. We also want to keep some books for her in the living room to play with, so we needed a good kids bookcase that did not steal away toy storage. The Tidy Books bookcase is a perfect solution for our household because we do not have a lot … [Read more...]

Baby’s Journey One Step Baby Gate Review

Baby's Journey One Step Gate Review from Granolaish.com

**I received a Baby's Journey One Step Baby Gate to facilitate this review, all opinions are honest and my own** We have a new favorite baby gate in Granolaishland. It's the Baby's Journey One Step Gate. We couldn't quite install it in 5 minutes the first time (my fault, I didn't read the instructions all the way), but I definitely could next time. This is in contrast to the 15 minutes to even an hour it took us to install our previous gates. I haven't had the best luck with other baby gates … [Read more...]
