Episode 014 - "VBAC and Breastfeeding While Heading Back to Work" with guest Stephanie Melowsky

Stephanie became pregnant with her son London,  at a busy time in her life. She was planning a wedding, working full time, and naive to what labor was like with little time to research. When the day came to deliver her baby, she ended up having a C-section and although overjoyed with the arrival of her baby boy, she knew the next time around, she would do things differently.


When Stephanie learned she was pregnant with her daughter Paris, she did her research and found doctors that supported a vaginal birth after c-section (VBAC) and was successfully able to delivery her daughter vaginally with minimal medications.


She shares her birth stories and provides us insight on the differences between nursing her children. Stephanie also discusses her continued breastfeeding after she returned to work and how she maintained her supply to successfully breastfeed both children for 6 months and beyond.     

Episode 013 - "The Wonder Weeks" with host Melissa Herreria

One thing that keeps me sane when my son is learning something new is the Wonder Weeks app. Have you checked it out yet? The app is based on the best selling book by the same name “The Wonder Weeks.” And its totally free. 

The gist of the app and the book are that All babies go though the same changes in the mental development at the same time. This is called a mental leap. With each leap, your baby is given the possibility to learn new things. And every baby wants to learn, much less master, these new skills, as learning these makes him master that ‘puzzle’ or ‘chaos’ that is in his brain since the leap. Learning new things helps him to get through the fussy phase and is good for his development for the rest of his life.

The book is written by two doctors, Hetty van de Rijt and Frans Plooij, that studied the mental development of babies.  We have all heard about growth spurts and sleep regressions but mental leaps are yet another thing that can totally turn your world around but they are also AMAZING.
