This post is #sponsored by Kabrita USA but these words are my own! I give my true and honest opinion of the product. Logan has been supplementing with Kabrita goat milk formula for many many months prior to this partnership. We love working with brands we know and trust.
Let me kick this off by saying FED IS BEST. It doesn’t matter HOW a babe is fed. A full baby is a happy baby and that is ALL that matters. You’re doing great mama.
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been working with Kelley from Serenity Sleepers for the last month to get Logan better rest. She previously was micro-napping (20-30min naps) and wasn’t sleeping through the night. Desperate for sleep myself, we contacted Kelley and got started right away.
As I sit here and write this blog post, I’m on the verge of tears. I just finished walking Logan and put her down for a nap. Honest, this may be my most vulnerable blog post yet — I’m putting myself out there in a real, raw and honest way. Why am I doing that? Because sometimes it’s nice to just write it down. For me sometimes it feels therapeutic. And because I know someone out there resonates with me and maybe this post makes them feel a little less alone. The first few months can feel isolating. Especially if you’re far from friends and family like I am.
So here we are, a few weeks into my fourth trimester. The fourth trimester is a period described by expert Dr. Harvey Karp as the first three months of a baby’s life. It is a time when a newborn is adjusting to life outside of the womb. It’s filled with a tremendous amount of changes and development for the baby and is becoming more recognized as an important phase of a little one’s early days.
As many of you may know, I was very passionate about having a natural birth with Logan. When I envisioned giving birth, it was just how I always pictured it. I wanted a more peaceful environment vs. a hospital, which to me, felt a little more sterile and uncomfortable. My overall goal was to avoid as many interventions as possible to eliminate risks and side effects and I knew that aiming for a natural birth would be a step in the right direction.
