What is Your Baby’s Breastfeeding Personality?

Breastfeeding isn’t always an easy task, especially when you can’t quite put your finger on your baby’s nursing behavior. Why isn’t he/she latching on? What does it mean when he/she moves her mouth like that? Why won’t they just eat already?

There can be a lot going on when you breastfeed. So, it’s a good thing Dr. Edith Jackson from Yale University narrowed down five of the most common breastfeeding types and how to handle them. Big thanks as well to child psychologist David Elkind for making this study more readily available to breastfeeding moms today through his book “Parenting On the Go: Birth to Six, A to Z”! Find out which kind of breastfeeder your baby is below!

8 Home Remedies You Can Try When Your Kids Have Colds

Kids can get colds as often as 8-12 times a year, especially for younger ones whose immune systems are still developing. Even if it is just the common cold, we tend to worry and try our best to make them feel better as soon as possible. Often times, the easiest way is to resort to over-the-counter (OTC) medicines thinking that our little ones will heal faster taking them. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not recommend these type of medicines for children younger than 2 years old. Drugs with codeine and hydrocodone, usually combined with other medicines in decongestants and antihistamines, are also not indicated for use in children younger than 18 years old. While there is no direct cure for the common cold (as most of them clear up in a week or two), here are some simple home remedies you can try to help make your little one feel better.

This Mom Shares How She Styled Her Own Minimalist Family Shoot

Being the founder of Baby and Breakfast, I have seen more family shoots than I can count. And since I act as the editor in chief of a website that features a lot of parties and shoots, it might come as a surprise that my family rarely has parties or shoots (note to self: I actually wanna have more family shoots! My kids are growing too fast!) 

The truth is family shoots are truly precious and something I believe we should all invest in doing. I always love looking back at these photos, which are memories that can’t compare to anything! But I also know that sometimes it’s not the easiest thing to do or prepare for! Where do we do it? Who will take our photos? And what do we wear? 

So let me share my own experience with you! And if you wanna go a bit more personal in styling your own family shoot, I’ll also be imparting a few tips on how I styled ours! A few years back (yeah sorry it took awhile to share this!), we decided to have a family shoot with one of our trusted photographers Happy Folks Studios. I only had a day to prepare. But, thankfully it still came out pretty cute. So here are a couple of things I did that helped create the whole look!
