From 1st to the 7th August 2017 marks World Breastfeeding Awareness Week. This week is highlighted to emphasize the value and importance of breastfeeding for mothers as well as baby.
If there’s one thing that I miss about having an infant in our home, it’s definitely that strong bond and special time with my babies that came along with breastfeeding. It wasn’t so easy to begin with – it was tiring and painful initially, but with the right technique and persevering through, it ended up being the most special times of my life.
Many Pregnant women have concerns on whether they will succeed in breastfeeding or if they will produce enough milk. For first-time Moms breastfeeding can be a harrowing experience, but it is a learned skill, help is at hand from your doctor, midwife, nurse or healthcare professionals.
Kurt and I had a date night this week (yes, miracles do happen). We went to see Chris Forrest’s side-splitting one-man show, Who’s Your Daddy at the Kalk Bay Theatre.
Chris may be one of South Africa’s most sought-after comedians but his greatest achievements is his family and his journey to fatherhood has brought to life in this hilariously honest show!
I could so relate to the show but I think that Kurt felt as if he and Chris were singing from the same hymn sheet. Chris sheds some light on his experiences of becoming a father. His number one golden rule is “Don’t argue with a pregnant woman!” – and that’s coming from experience! From pregnancy to birth, sleepless nights, dirty diapers and everything in between, Chris shares valuable tips about what really happens and how to deal with it.
This Winter holidays, Alyssa and Aidan got a huge surprise from Just Fun Kidz – an assortment of the cutest little Chubby Puppies and friends. If you’ve been following me on Instagram and been watching some of my stories, you would see the little puppies have been a hit and have been keeping the kids entertained throughout the holidays. In fact, they even joined us on a road trip this weekend.
If you’re like me, Winter makes me want to eat anything and everything in my path. I am so conscious about my eating and exercise routine at the moment and lately, I feel as if I need to do a lot more to “be healthy”, as I’m getting older.
I think I sometimes also just use the cold as an excuse to eat, but I honestly feel like my waist expands with every single bite I eat these days… literally. Why is that? Is it just in my DNA to pick up weight easily?
This is exactly why I’m so excited to find out more about the CTG Centre and DNAlysis.
