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.

I knew this would be a really fun year, since Colton is at an age where he thinks Christmas is really magical. Plus, it was Blair’s very first Christmas! And there’s nothing better than a baby’s first holiday season.
Whether you know me in real life or online, you’ve probably heard me talk about one thing… I am incredibly self-conscious about my c-section pouch.

But today, I’m sharing one of my secrets: the best leggings for moms. And yes, they actually hide the mommy tummy!
