Whether you breastfeed or bottlefeed – you’re a good mom for nurturing your little ones.

All breastfeeding moms have one main goal — to feed their child. But contained within this main goal are a wide range of smaller, related goals like combating a low milk supply, adjusting to a baby’s feeding demands during a growth spurt, planning on returning to work or school, or providing pumped milk to a preterm infant. – via Legendairy

My son began trying to nurse within minutes of being born. That may be a slight exaggeration, but it’s close. As soon as he was wrapped up and in the arms of a nurse – he began trying to latch on to something. He was soon placed in my arms and allowed to begin rooting around.

But, I had nothing for him. The nurses encouraged me to allow him to do what he needed to do – and ensured me that he would soon get enough colostrum and all would be right in our world.

Three hours later, he still hadn’t gotten what his tummy needed and was in full-blown meltdown. I was already traumatized by not being able to properly nurse my daughter a couple of years prior – and was panicked that he was so panicked and pitiful looking.

I asked for a bottle.



I was encouraged to keep trying.

I was sore, he was scream-crying. I demanded a bottle.

I never tried to nurse again. For me, it was scarring because I felt like such a failure at something I felt I needed to give my babies. I hadn’t really been counseled or educated in ways to increase milk production and supply. So, I was left clueless and depressed about the entire situation.

If I had it to do over again, there are many different things I would try and include in my breastfeeding diet – including Legendairy.

There are many supplements to increase milk supply – but this would be one of the first I would try based on ingredients and the company behind the products.

From Their Site:

Congrats! You’re a new mom to an adorable little squish you get to kiss, cuddle, and oh wait…feed! Breastmilk is one of the greatest gifts a mom can give her baby but breastfeeding isn’t always the easiest job in the world. For Legendairy Milk founder, Luna Feehan, those first few weeks after her son was born were primarily spent obsessing about her breast milk production. Not surprising when the majority of her days involved nursing, pumping, hand expressing, washing bottles and then starting the cycle all over again! And the worry about whether she was producing enough milk constantly niggled in the back of her mind.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably had or are currently having a similar experience. Please know that you’re not alone. Concern about an inadequate milk supply is the #1 reason why women stop breastfeeding.

That’s why Legendairy Milk®️ was created. For centuries, certain herbs and foods have been used in different cultures to help promote breast milk production. Our herbal lactation supplements were formulated with these carefully chosen ingredients to target the primary issues that affect milk production. Our products are free of any additives or preservatives so that every capsule is brimming with pure and potent milk-enhancing ingredients. We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure our formulations are organic and healthy for both mom and baby because we know a legendairy mom like you deserves a legendairy product.

I’m sure that there were home remedies and supplements that I could have taken when my children were born – but it wasn’t something that was really talked about much. At least not in my circles.

It would have been wonderful to have had more information and a realization that there may have been something I could have tried. But my little world just didn’t have much chatter about it at all – and so I licked my wounds and went on. But it has always been a sore spot for me.

A source of support would have also been a welcome ray of light. I think that’s why Legendairy has stuck out to me and why I’m showing it to you. Because maybe it will be a help to you.

Moms helping moms: I love that for every bottle you buy – Legendairy makes a donation to an infant in need.

Decorating and Personalizing with Sticker Kid 0 5

I had thought that I would start this article off with a walk down memory lane – and remind you of how neat it was to be a kid and have something with your name on it. Do you remember buying pencils or keychains with your name? As a kid, I loved that.

But I’ll be honest – as an adult – I still love it. I’m putting my name, our last name or initials all over the place! So in reality, who doesn’t love it at any age?

It’s still fun to find items in a store that has my name or my children’s name on it – but I think it’s even more fun and quite useful to put our name on whatever I want!

Sticker Kid sent over the cutest labels – and I got to do just that. They have so many sticker shapes, sizes, uses — they even have posters!

I spent the weekend labeling-up the kid’s stuff and a few things of my own.

You know what I love the most about Sticker Kid labels – other than the fun, personalization factor? The fact that it helps the kiddos (and me) keep track of their items. There used to be a time when I knew exactly which pencil and eraser belonged to my child. I also knew exactly how many items I sent with them out of the house. But, my brain is a little more frazzled and I need a little help remembering what I’ve purchased and sent with them. So, Sticker Kid can help me keep all of that in order.

Is that the backpack I bought for you, Joey? Yep! It has your name tag on it. Savannah, did I really buy you that water bottle? Yep! It has our name label on it.

Please tell me that I’m not the only one with a perpetual case of “mom brain”?
I had been worried that the labels and tags would be easily removable to the point where they could just fall off and be lost. But they are securely on each item.

You may be tempted to solely use the labels on the typical items such as school supplies, and shoes. But I think they’re going to work very well when the kids head to camp and go on day-adventures.

I plan to label items such as hair dryers, safety kids, flashlights, combs, leave-in conditioners, sunblock, pool toys, bite cream, and the list goes on. What else would you label?

I was excited to see their collection of kitchen labels and home decor items. Having just revamped one of my brands, I wanted to pay homage to it. These kitchen labels were the perfect item to keep it close.

I plan to use these to organize not only spices, but my espresso, flours, sugars, and oats.

So, the poster is probably my most favorite item of all. Because I love putting our names everywhere! Right now, I’m attaching it to this old calendar board I thrifted last year.

I painted the frame white, added wood to the inner portion and covered it with chalk paint. This will hang in our kitchen – but I may rotate the poster throughout the house.

I’d love to hear what your ideas on labeling are! What should I label next? Which item are you going to order or which one should I order next?
