1 Year Breastfeeding Review

The first year with Max went by so quickly, and now we have a toddler. Mr. Ice Cream and I aren’t perfect parents by any means, but most days it’s fair to say we are raising a happy kid. It’s funny to think that a year ago Ice Cream had never changed a diaper and […]

As much as I dislike breastfeeding, I also feel guilt when I don’t […]
