My big boy Colton will be 4 years old tomorrow, which means I’m sitting here wondering how time has gone by so quickly. Since I’ve never actually fully shared his birth story, I want to write it now. So, here it is: Colton’s Emergency C-Section Birth Story, only 4 years late.
When I was pregnant with my first, I knew I wanted to breastfeed and hoped to do it for a year or so. Fairly simple.
Spoiler Alert: It turned into much, much more than that. There are lots of Breastfeeding After C-Section Success Stories, and here’s mine.
Following a traumatic birth experience, I fought hard to breastfeed my little man. I fought off a pushy pediatrician who wanted me to supplement with formula beginning only the second day after my unwanted c-section. Instead, I kept Baby at the breast and my milk came in full force the next day.
So I was trying to keep up with weekend recaps starting on Memorial Day weekend. Then I promptly missed the next weekend–facepalm. I love sharing these little snapshots of our lives with you, though! A highlight of my weekend was testing out our new stroller, so I’m including a Chicco BravoFor2 Double Stroller Review, too!
This post is hard–really hard–for me to write. I try to keep things upbeat around here, but the fact is that’s not always how life goes. Because right now, I have tears in my eyes and my fingers can’t keep up with how fast my brain is going. This is what it feels like for the mom mourning a loss of a chemical pregnancy.

Getting two kids plus myself ready in the morning is… well, let’s just say not easy. Over the years, I’ve started building somewhat of capsule wardrobes for my kids. I don’t follow the capsule wardrobe “science” exactly, because lazy. But I have a great mom hack to share with you on how to build an easy capsule wardrobe for Baby and get your little ones ready for the day more quickly!
