August is national breastfeeding month so I thought I’d share my breastfeeding journey with you.
It was HARD. I used to think it would be easy and our natural instincts would kick in. Nope. Both you and your baby must learn how to do it together. It was emotionally and physically draining. By the end of the first month, I wanted to throw in the towel and quit. I was done with the bloody cracked nipples and painful latching. However, since there are so many reasons why breastmilk is the best food for infants and I had the supply, I felt guilty for not giving him what I had. I continued on and told myself that 3 months would be my goal. 3 months passed and I still had a great supply so my next goal was 6 months. 6 months passed and it was getting better so my next goal was 12 months. 26 months later and I realized we hadn’t stopped. 😂 I’m so grateful I was able to do this with my son and now with my daughter. It’s not easy and it’s not for everyone. You do what’s best for you and your baby but if you are struggling like I was, I want to tell you that it gets so much better and the moments become so special. When I weaned Logan, I was the one crying! 🙊 So hang in there, set your goal and once you hit it, it’s OKAY to stop but if you feel like you can do more, go for it, mama!

The other night I took down a load of stories I posted about the number of workbooks my junior infant and second class ladies have for school which can't be reused at the end of the year, I know workbooks are a necessary evil for the younger age groups but anyway. And I wont go into the reasons why I took them down suffice to say someone was offended which is fine, we're all entitled to our opinion.... But are we???? I give mine but I feel of late it has to be edited or toned down or simply taken down. It does make me think though about the fine line between voicing your opinion and saying nothing so you never offend anyone. What do you think? I'm afraid I don't have balls of steel and I worry about hurting people's feelings because I'm an eldest child therefore it's in my nature to keep the peace , but I'm beginning to think I could do with caring a damn sight less sometimes and just being unequivocally me 🤔🤔🤔

A pochi passi dal più famoso lago di Molveno, c’è questo splendido specchio d’acqua circondato dal verde delle montagne 🐸🐠⛰
Si può pescare, nuotare (acqua limpida e non troppo fredda) 🎣🏊🏻♀️, passeggiare (anche facilmente con il passeggino) o girare in bicicletta 🚴🏻♂️🏃🏼♀️Ci sono zone d’ombra e aree per prendere il sole, giochi per bambini, bagni, aree pic nic, fontanelle e un bar/ristorante a portata di mano 🌲🎠🥪🍽⛲️
Perfetto per passarci un intera giornata o anche solo per chi è di passaggio!
Si può soggiornare nel piccolo garni a bordo lago 🏠, in uno degli hotel/campeggi nei pressi di Molveno (5min 🚘) o in uno dei tanti family hotel/residence di #andalo (15min 🚘). Se avete qualche giorno a disposizione, consiglio questa ultima opzione per poter godere di tutto quello che offrono queste meravigliose montagne 🗺
Con @activitytrentino potete fare escursioni a portata di tutta la famiglia o anche solamente noleggiare l’attrezzatura necessaria (compresi zaini porta bimbo o passeggini da trekking) 🚲🏇🏼🚡🧗🏻♂️

Mala Blaža je mama.
Mama sam već 2 godine, a još uvijek mi je prečudna ta činjenica. Nekako sam mislila da se naglo promijeniš i sazriješ kada postaneš roditelj, a ja se i dalje osjećam kao da mi je 20. Oduvijek sam bila dosta zrela i odgovorna, no mislim da dijete u meni nikada neće odrasti. Gledam svoje cure, osobito navečer kada spavaju, i ne vjerujem da su moje, da sam ih ja rodila, da sam odgovorna za njih i da su ovisne o meni! Predpostavljala sam da je majčinstvo teško, no nekada me dovede do granica koje nisam znala da postoje. #nećufaza #terribletwo
I onda kad ih tako gledam u miru, zahvaljujem Bogu što ih imam i ljutim na sebe što sam nekada možda prestroga ili bar pokušavam biti. Zaboravim i potisnem to dijete u sebi da njih naučim nečemu, a zapravo bih najradije legla s njima na pod i samo bila ona fun mom kakvom sam se zamišljala kada nisam imala djecu. .
Da li vas je majčinstvo promijenilo? Jeste li se instant osjećali drugačije ili poput mene još ne možete vjerovati da si vaši? 🙊
