A Letter to the Woman at the Nashville Airport

On July 25th my husband and I was flying back home with our three and half month old son. We had arrived early to the airport wanting to be sure we wouldn’t miss out flight. Our flight got delayed because of weather.  Our son, Theodore, was getting hungry. I struggled to get the breastfeeding pillow…

It’s not about the numbers

Breastfeeding is so natural but for some reason it requires so many different things especially if you pump.  Breast pump, pumping supplies, cleaning and sanitizing those supplies, breast pumping bras, pouches to store milk in, breast pads, and nipple cream.  Now, I don’t know if this is normal but for some reason I let down…

I always thought it would just come naturally to me and baby Theodore.   I had all these plans laid out for breastfeeding. Haha plans, right?…

Birth Story of Theodore Jackson

This is going to be a long, detailed birth story. I feel like sharing what it is really like to give birth under difficult circumstances needs to be talked about where maybe someone else won’t get scared when it happens to them. On March 26th we had our baby shower and that evening Jay realized…

1 month of baby Theodore

It has been a month (more than a month) since Theodore arrived. It has been a crazy, tiring, joyful ride adjusting to taking care of this little human. Let me tell you a little bit about my little man: He is a little monster! I say that with all the love of a mother but I…
