Our Journey from Breastfeeding to Formula, part 1

Breast Feeding Welcome

Yesterday’s post and the discussions in the comments prompted me to do something I’ve wanted to do for a while and that is share my breastfeeding experience.

A to Z Challenge: N is for Nursing Tanks (Things We Love)

N is for Nursing Tanks. They saved my life after W was born and are one of the things we (or I) love and probably couldn’t do without! Before W was born, I purchased a cheap nursing bra and two nursing tanks at Target. They were affordable and I couldn’t bring myself to spend a… (continue reading)

Saving on Baby Formula

Saving on Baby Formula One thing I’d never considered during my pregnancy was baby formula. My plans for W included exclusively breastfeeding and pumping at work.
