A New Nursing Tool - Premama Vitamins

Breastfeeding isn't easy. I thought it would just happen but that serene cameo never happened with my first two babies. With my son he arrived in a quick and frantic hour, 5 weeks early. After he was rushed off to NICU he was given formula before I saw him. They continued to give him formula and at 22 and two thousand miles from my family I didn't know my rights. He never adapted to breastfeeding and after pumping for a bit to supplement the formula and a round of mastitis that hospitalized me we stopped trying. Years later I gave birth to my lovely little Yasmina. She was a feisty one (and still is) and breastfeeding her was similar to trying to hold a feral cat still. Yet we somehow made it to 3 months at which point in time I went back to my travel job and had to wean her. When Yasmina turned a year old we found out we were pregnant with our Hurricane baby, Sohayla. I've now been able to experience happy cuddly nursing moments. She cuddles and has a hearty (yet gentle) appetite even now at six months. It's important to me to model a good nursing relationship to my kids in the hopes that when they're older they will also try breastfeeding with their kids.

I've been chosen to take part in a 30 day challenge by Premama. This post is sponsored but the adorable pictures of my children and my stories are my own. In truth I sought out this opportunity because I tried a sample of the product a few months ago and really wanted to test it out while nursing. I'll be sharing how my experience went in mid-December here and on TravelingMom. The little powder packets are perfect for travel! Premama contains a mix of vitamins, minerals, and even ginger root. I wish I had these when I was pregnant with my son eight years ago- I had hyperemisis gravidarum (just like the Duchess Kate Middleton- there's our 8 degrees).

I wove this sweater basket originally as a toy container but it also contains babies nicely :)

I want to do everything I can to take care of this precious baby and one of the things I'm seeing already is that by taking a vitamin that dissolves in water I'm drinking more liquids. I'll be checking back with an update soon!
