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.
Summer is winding down, as much as I hate to admit it. Colton is already back to preschool and Blair and I are attempting to establish our own little “girl time” routine. Although, if you’ve watched my Instagram Stories, you know how [un]successful that’s been. As a kid–and now, as a mom–one of my favorite parts of summer is swimming!

I have 2 little kids, so keeping anything nice is a challenge. Here are the strategies I’m using to protect car from kids…
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.
