I Am Pro-FEEDING Your Child

Getting Real with Brittany Tiedemann Before I had my daughter I was all excited to breastfeed her. There are so many benefits from it, and like all moms, I wanted what was best for my baby. I did all my research on how to properly breastfeed. I bought a pump just in case she wouldn’t latch for a while or latch properly.

Tis the Season … Baby’s First Christmas

Getting Real with Brittany Tiedmann This year will be the first Christmas with our new baby. Since we had her in October, my husband and I had agreed that because she is so small we wouldn’t do gifts for her this year. Now before you jump down my throat here let me explain. She will be around 2 months by the time Christmas is here. She doesn’t have the dexterity in her hands to open a gift – heck, she can barely control her head movement. She’s not wanting anything other than a bottle full of formula or her...
