Making Expired Breast Milk Lotion

This recipe has been revised to account for separation and spoilage issues. Please hop over to the revised version to get your expired breast milk groove on! I have been blessed to spend most of my breastfeeding days at home with my son. Although I did recently decide to go back to work, there's no need to pump much since he's in full toddler mode with the solid food and almond milk consumption. I do, however, have plenty of milk in my freezer taking up space. It's a good thing, too, because that patch of dry skin I thought was pregnancy mask is hanging around making my face look all scabby and blah. Try to ignore the fact that … [Read more...]

Don’t Waste a Drop!

If you've ever been that new breastfeeding mother you know how precious your breast milk is. Even in the beginning when your mammary glands are working like a broken faucet you still have a certain attachment to every single drop of milk. I personally had issues with leakage and I could have bought stock in nursing pads. (I should have prepared myself with a few days' supply of washable ones, but I didn't think ahead.) On top of that, I had to feed both my baby and my pump. When I could get them both going at the same time I was elated! But being tired and needed a minimum of 3 hands... well it didn't work out that way all the time. So I was … [Read more...]
