Two years ago, I posted this blurry, poorly taken photo on my Facebook to show support and solidarity with women breastfeeding UNCOVERED 🤯 in church. I was filled with anxiety the second I hit that post button. I got lots of love and looooooots of flack. Well, I’m here with a repost of it because of #worldbreastfeedingweek2020 . Regardless of whether you breastfeed, pump, or formula feed (we did all! ), whether or not you are religious, women should 🗣NEVER EVER🗣 feel ashamed to feed their baby how, when, and where they need to! . Original caption (edited for length ) . To my fellow nursing mamas, . We love you, we support you, we WANT you here in church with us! We want you to fellowship with us, and be a part of our spiritual community. We want you to partake of every blessing of the sacrament and of coming to church. Where ever you are most comfortable nursing, we want you. We NEED your presence. . If a woman feeding her infant makes you uncomfortable, kindly look away 😉 it’s awkward to stare at people during worship services anyway. Maybe start praying to Jesus for a change of heart too (that’s wayyyy edited for length btw 😂 ) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingtips #breastfeedingjourney #breastfeedinginpublic #breastfeedingawareness #normalizebreastfeeding #normalisebreastfeeding #newmum #newmom #fedisbest #informedisbest #worldbreastfeedingweek #xloveparents #lovemama #tiredmom #pumpingmom #babyprep #thirdtrimester #fourthtrimester #lighttheworld #breastfeedingadvocate #breastfeedingworld #babiesinbonnets #motherhoodrising #honestmothering #livecolorfully #squaresofmyheart

EARLY BEDTIME . 🤷When someone asks me for a tip to help their overtired child I usually always suggest starting with an early bedtime. An early bedtime can be kind of subjective due to varying factors (bedtime, waketime, night wakings, day naps, age, temperament ). For me though, an early bedtime means 6. For others it can mean 7:30 or even 5:30. . 👉An early bedtime is the best precursor in getting your child well rested again. Not only are they getting more sleep than if a later bedtime but they’re getting more QUALITY sleep. When we sleep we go through phases starting at a very light sleep (still aware of noise around us ) and ending with a deep sleep (difficult to wake ). Deep sleep is where the most restorative sleep happens and the majority of deep sleep happens early in the night. . 🤷Okay, so what’s so important about deep sleep? . 🔹We’ve always known that deep sleep is associated with memory retention and learning. Studies have shown when sleep suffers so does one’s ability to learn and process information. A new study is shedding light on how this process takes place. . 🔹What happens is kind of fascinating. When we enter the deep sleep stage our neurons, which have been randomly firing all day, start to synchronize into ‘on/off’ periods. When the neurons are in the ‘off’ stage they require less oxygen meaning a decrease in blood flow to the brain. Cerebrospinal fluid would surge in and out ‘washing’ the brain of toxins some of which (beta amyloid and tau ) are tied to Alzheimer’s. This also explains why it’s hard to focus or remember things when we miss a night of sleep; our brains are clogged with toxins that prevent memory retention. . 🔹Sometimes we have a hard time setting an early bedtime. Some of us work and don’t see our kids often and some of us don't want to deal with the battle that will ensue. I know that for me it helps when I know what I’m doing is beneficial for my children.

Non-scale victory.... when you go down TWO pant sizes in your work pants and STILL have wiggle room!! It’s not always about the numbers on the scale that keeps you going....it can be the inches coming off, going down a size (or more! ) in your clothes, running that extra distance, lifting those heavier weights, or even the stamina and energy to workout longer! Non-scale Victories Are The Best!! What is a non-scale victory that YOU would like to see?? Let me help you get there!! #igotyou #nonscalevictory #texasgirl #animalcontrolofficer #policewife #wiggleroom #shreddinginches #downpantsizes #nutrition #tiredmom #countrygirl

Another oldie 😊 and she’s wearing her mask 😷. . I woke up this morning grieving over my son’s first experience of kindergarten. I remember riding the bus and finding my classroom, sitting at the tables with other kids. I met my bestie in kindergarten. . What will the world look like for these babies? My 9 month old just started a new daycare but has never seen the faces of her caregivers. Faces and smiles are so important for babies! She was scared... . I’m heartbroken and this artwork just feels right today 😫❤️ I’m grieving the way it was, the way It used to be. Praying for our kids growing up in this new world. . . . . #inkedapril #watercolorillustration #pandemic #pandemiclife #grievingheart #covıd19 #morningmood #morningprayer #hopeforthefuture #artmom #tiredmom #overwelmedmom

Mi associo ad @anya_shadi per il nomakeup e nofilter. La bellezza si trova ben oltre gli strati di trucco e di photoshop, bisogna semplicemente apprezzare ciò che si è con pregi e difetti e coltivare anche altri aspetti del nostro essere. Io penso che ogni tanto ritrovare il proprio volto sia un atto di onestà verso sé stessi. Quest'anno la maternità (e un bel po' anche la quarantena ) mi ha insegnato tanto e soprattutto come prendersi cura di sé stessi non significa per forza farsi la messa in piega perfetta o mettere il rossetto ma anche concedersi il tempo per leggere un ebook nell'oscurità dei momenti rubati alla nanna. Il trucco dovrebbe essere un piacere, una scelta, e mai una dipendenza o una priorità imposta. #nomakeup #nofilter #mommy #motherdaughter #naturalbeauty #veglife #momlife #loveyourself #nomaquillaje #facetoface #womenpower #nobeautyfilter #italy #momtime #bellezzanaturale #tiredmom

August feels like it’s moving too quickly. Sorry I’ve been kinda MIA. Continuously trying to catch up on life. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Lots of self reflection has been happening as my new “adventure” begins September. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Anyways, I won’t ramble on. Here’s a pic of our family, since my face is overdue on this feed.

We we’re struggling. ⠀ ⠀ There were nights we would spend AGES getting Rilynn to fall asleep just to lay her down and wake up absolutely screaming.⠀ ⠀ There were nights she would wake up at midnight and not go to sleep again until the morning.⠀ ⠀ There were nights where we would have to sleep on the couch falling asleep to a movie and not move just to avoid her possibly waking up.⠀ ⠀ There were days (a lot of them ) when I’d wake up to workout at 4:30 and she’d already be awake and needing to eat.⠀ ⠀ Nate and I were at our wits end, frustrated with everything constantly, and always walking on eggshells and being unsure if we’d sleep more than 2 hours or in our own bed. Mind you, this was not the newborn stage - this was well past. We finally felt like we had no choice but to reach out for help, or who knows where we’d be. ⠀ ⠀ We started sleep training Rilynn with the help of @the_sleep_bae at the end of June and it’s literally turned our lives around. Rilynn is now sleeping from 6:30pm-6:30/7am every night no wake-ups and falling asleep on her own - and taking a scheduled nap at the same time everyday. As a busy mom, having a schedule and some time to get some stuff done was necessary for me. I needed to be able to get my workout in early and ready for work or the day before she woke up. I needed to have atleast an hour of her napping in the afternoon to work. But most importantly I needed a sense of control, schedule, and normalicy to not feel like we were crumbling.⠀ ⠀ I’m so proud of Ri for the progress she’s made, and she’s overall just a happier baby (well now basically toddler😂 ) because of it. Parents - don’t struggle until your wits end. Ask for help, have the hard few days, but make the changes necessary for your kid and to better your family. So incredibly thankful for Halle and her guidance and talking us through some of the tantrums that happened🤪 - but without a doubt, well worth it a million times over. ⠀ ⠀ Did you sleep train your kids? How did it go?! . . #sleeptraining #sleeptraining #tiredmom #cincymom #tiredparents #newparents

Today I was reminded that a little over 5 years ago I started #simple . I started as a #tiredmom who just needed to feel like herself again. With 3 simple products that eliminated the 🦠bad🦠 in my body & seeded🌱 it with good! YOU don’t have to spend an arm 💪🏼 and a leg🦵🏼, you don’t need a million pills... 💊 I want to help you start simple. Less than $4/day. And you’ll get the same THREE gut health products I started with cheaper than I can get them. I used to make fun of GUT HEALTH....

💎Diamonds are created under pressure.💎 John Maxwell says, “I have concluded that there are no great people in the world. Just great challenges which ordinary men and women rise to meet. It is meeting those challenges that makes people extraordinary.” He also says he “purposefully places himself in situations where others are bigger, better, faster, and more successful than me.” I workout with people way faster. Way stronger. They push me to not play small. I’m grateful for these people because otherwise I’d definitely wimp out! Likewise, growing as a leader AND growing leaders in my wellness business continues to push me to stop making excuses and rise to the challenges I’m daily faced with. If you’ve read this far, ask yourself this: am I playing small? Do I let people pleasing prevent me from being all God crested me to be and do? Am I held back by fear? I’d love to chat. One of my biggest desires is to encourage others in growing. I have definitely not arrived but I love pushing alongside others wanting to grow, too. ❤️ . . . #guthealthforlife #leadersgrowleaders #residualincome # #thyroid #fatigue #adrenalfatigue #tiredmom #autoimmune #werisebyliftingothers #campgladiator

Today I felt defeated 😕 I couldn’t finish my last circuit in my workout so I done some extended stretches and mobility 🙌 It’s one of these days that my body needed an extra break, and even what was very simple workout felt like a torture. We been very active with my girls (every day ) and I didn’t have much sleep through the night (my little one is waking up ) so my body is feeling it. And today I just need a break, relax and fuel up on some good and nutritious food. It’s a rest day in full meaning and early night tonight I hope. Hopefully tomorrow I feel much better. . . . . . Remember guys to rest when needed and cherish a good night sleep. Important is to eat to make your body stronger not only for sake of eating. Health is so important and sometimes we all struggle. But if we take a good care of ourself so there will be less of these bad days. Stay strong everyone 💪 😘 . . . . . #rest #restday #recovery #tired #tiredmum #personaltrainer #stayhealthy #happyandhealthy #fitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessgirl #fit #fitmom #fitmotivation #picoftheday #picture #instadaily #instagood #tiredmom #mumlife #staystrong #girl

Meet my friend, Katie. Anxiety, allergies, and fatigue...She never started these products for weight loss. In fact, there is a zero pound difference in between these two photos. 🤯 I can 💯 relate to her story! . “The weight I carried wasn’t physical pounds on the scale. The weight I carried was: anxiety, inflammation, bloat, horrible seasonal allergies and fatigue. I thought it was normal. I had exercised and taught group fitness classes. I thought I was doing it right, but I wasn’t. I had some nutritional gaps that needing filling and it wouldn’t come through diet and exercise alone. Don’t misunderstand me, exercise and good nutrition is vital for our mental & physical health ... but so is filling the gaps that they alone cannot fill. . I started my son off on the XFactor Multivitamins + Probiotic for kids, and decided I would try supplementing too. My first noticeable changes were decreased bloat & more energy. With time and consistency, I was able to stop my everyday allergy medications and now only take them during peak season as needed. I began to notice the inflammation (that I didn’t even know I had until seeing old photos like the one on the right ) begin to decrease. And then after several months, I was able to discontinue my PRN anxiety medication. 🙌🏽 . I don’t know about you, but these are wins in my book. So many times we push aside the messages that our bodies are sending us. We think it’s normal, but it’s not. Everything and I mean everything is intertwined. The gut-brain connection is REAL (check the studies and latest research ) Our bodies were not created to feel like crap, and if we will listen to what they’re telling us...if we take a holistic approach and we give them what they really need, we’ll feel how much lighter life can be.

“Mom I’m really sick of you from first thing in the morning to last thing at night!” That’s my youngest who said that! 🤨 To be honest I don’t blame him stuck in these 4 walls with me for 5 full months. But seriously, a massive shout out to all the moms and dads still at home with the kids trying to keep them entertained, fed and alive whilst working and doing all the usual stuff on top. It’s not been easy has it? I also can’t believe how much they eat? 🥐🥗🥖🍰 #tiredmom #comeonseptember #rec2rec #rectorec #r2r #recruitment #recruiting #recruit #recruiter #recruiterlife #recruitmentagency #recruitmentlife #recruitmentjobs #recruitingrecruiters #birminghamrecruiter #birminghamrec2rec #birminghamrecruitment #walsall #wolverhampton #westmidlands #nottingham #leicester #derby #eastmidlands #worcestershire #warwickshire #staffordshire #bristolrecruitment #northampton

Hi! Im Dr. Mina. For more postpartum and parenting support follow me @MAMA_BABYPHD . I went straight from postpartum (mine was 9 months ) to pandemic. Basically in a sort of quarantine before quarantine. And now with this artificial lengthening of the postpartum period..it's like postpartum never ended. I join you in this space. With no advice but with an understanding of how trying these times are. I join you here and see you. In this space where every ounce of you is ready to explore and be out in the world. To rejoin, connect and make memories with your new family and your transformed self. This has been taken away from you and your baby. This is so big. I mourn this loss. You may be experiencing something similar. It's not something to be taken lightly. Please be gentle with you.

🟣”I didn’t lose myself in Motherhood, I found Myself!”🟣 At first, becoming a mom at 24yo made me feel like I couldn’t relate to most of my friends anymore because they weren’t mothers. I had to go out and meet new friends and find new interests. Bar hopping, breaking night & kid free vacays have become a thing Of the past! (I can’t even stay up past 9pm these days 👵🏽 ) But these past couple of Years, looking back at this time, I can wholeheartedly tell you I am the MOST happiest I have ever been in my entire life. If it wasn’t for becoming a mother, I never would have known or experienced this level of joy! I didn’t lose myself in motherhood, I found myself! #MOTHERHOOD #momlife #momblogger #momof2 #bestyearsofmylife #bestofbothworlds #boymom #girlmom #blessed #tiredmom #nofilter #unedited

You probably can’t tell from the look of us (🙄🙄🙄🙄 ), but this delightful little poppet has decided to ‘retire’ from sleeping. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yep - she’s decided that being asleep, overnight, is just not really for her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Singing, talking, crying, banging the cot frame as loudly as possible, testing out new dance moves... these are her preferred activities between 2am and 5am. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And she’s pretty keen on having company for these activities; they’re apparently not as fun if you’re alone in your room. Mum or Dad, not fussed which one, just as long as someone comes in for the fun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, needless to say, my husband and I are both feeling pretty rubbish! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the best thing about NOT being a first time Mum, is that, despite the shit-ness of this situation, I know that it will pass. And hopefully fairly quickly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With my first baby, my not-very-good-at-sleeping-at-night baby... I would have tried to find a reason for this downturn in sleep! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I would have googled. I would have checked my books! I would have memorised the Wonder Weeks app and tried to relate every aspect to what he was doing. I would have demanded to know WHY IS HE WAKING UP ALL THE TIME?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Is it his teeth? Is he too hot? Too cold? Is he wearing enough layers? Did I eat something too spicy? Is the moon of capricorn rising?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I would have over-analysed constantly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And now? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who the hell knows why she’s waking up more 🤷🏼‍♀️? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s probably teeth. It might not be. But I’m just not wasting time dwelling on the ‘why’. I’m just looking forward to this phase ending! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re a first time Mum - don’t blame yourself for the parts of parenting that are a bit tough and shitty. You’re no doubt doing a brilliant job. Try to trust yourself, go with the flow, and one day you’ll get more sleep 😘

Sharing a post this morning from our parent company @thelocalmomsnetwork because it couldn’t better explain why I’m so tired of hearing that this is our “new normal”! None of the past few months makes much sense, and if you’re like us, you’re feeling like the mom in this photo—tired. And not the kind of tired a solid 8 hours can fix (even though yes, that would be lovely anyway ). 😴 It just isn’t normal... 🌟To feel like your marriage and identity has taken a time machine to the 1950s (aka back-burnering your career and taking on more childcare with less help... not to mention homeschooling ). 🌟To always be expected to see silver linings (although we're not complaining about the extra QT with our kids, and curbside pickup is welcome to stick around... ). 🌟To do this much laundry and unloading and reloading of the dishwasher. When did the hamper become the equivalent of a trick candle at a birthday party?! Head to the link 👆🏻 in bio to read more, and find out the small things we're doing this week to make it the best one possible, including small acts of self-care, kindness to others, and gratitude. 🙏 #stamfordmoms #stamfordct #stamfordkids #stamfordfamilies #thelocalmomsnetwork #givingmomsthegiftoftime #selfcare #sundayscaries #sundayfunday #momlife #tiredmom #ohheymama #quarantinelife #backtoschool #covid19 #homeschoolmom #newnormal #motherhoodjourney
