Breastfeeding 101

Being a new mother is the most incredible thing! You have this beautiful baby who you love more than anything. You want to give this baby the absolute best! So what is the absolute best? 81.1% of new mommies in the United States want to breastfeed their babies and end up quitting in the first 6 months. Why is that? Only 51.8% of mommies are breastfeeding to their babies 6 month mark, and less than 30% of babies receive breast milk to their first birthday.

The top 2 reasonings for mommies quitting are; the pain and reduced milk supply. You will have pain throughout your breastfeeding experience.

10 Tips For Growing Basil Like A Boss

I love basil. It makes my summer worth the sweat. It makes your food come alive.

I would eat pesto on fresh pasta  every day if I could. But ya know, you need variety and things like that. Still 50% of our lunches end up being this because it tastes so dang good. The other 50% ends up being super yummy salads, or campfire food over the fire pit in the backyard.

As you can imagine we end up going through quite a bit of basil during the summer. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but fresh basil from the grocery store can be kinda pricey. Somehow it also goes bad before I get around to using it. Either I forget about it, or it gets lost in the back of the fridge never to be found.

This is why we grow our own. And a lot of it. It’s cheap to grow, and you really don’t have to do much for it. Just water and weed as necessary.
