MOTN Pump Vibes

For those who don't know MOTN stands for Middle of the Night :)

No one wants to wake up in the middle of the night! I barely want to get up to go pee.  Especially when I'm all nice and warm and cozy in my bed, in the perfect spot in a good deep sleep, resting peacefully.  However for the LO you will because you'll do anything for that little piece of joy.

So middle of the night pumping, what do you do?  I personally go back to sleep.  Occasionally I might grab a snack to have while pumping or watch a little TV; but mainly I go back to sleep.  Sleep is a rare thing to come by these days and now that the muffin is sleeping mostly through the night, I don't want to miss not one minute of sleep while she's sleep.  ( Follow that rule, its amazing lol)

Items to have for MOTN Pump Session:
* Hands Free Bra
*Supportive Pillow

Both of these items will allow you to doze back off while you pump.  Set an alarm to wake you up in about 30 minutes.  That way you wont wake up by having milk spill all over you (guilty)

* Pump of your choice
* Snacks

I can't stress the last one enough.  Always have water with you. Stay hydrated even when your not pumping.

MOTN pumping can be a drag but its all worth it <3

New Year, New Changes

Hey everyone! I'm back!!! New Year lots of things going on and the best part is more blogging!!! I'm very excited to really get my blog up and going this year.  I'll be mainly focusing on diet, mommy managing and of course TV! (Who doesn't love a good show) So with that being said, a new lifestyle change has happened.  I'm officially VEGAN (omg)  I've been a vegetarian for over five years and the change was awesome.  Becoming a vegan was prompted by giving birth to an amazing daughter.  Postpartum made me feel like I wanted a change for my daughter, a healthier change.  Thus the transition began.

So in the beginning giving up dairy was extremely difficult (omg) I missed it so much, but pizza (of course) was what I craved the most.  It was like I couldn't shake it.  I began to look for alternatives to my usual dominoes fix.  Side bar for those who are in the UK Pizza Hut now offers vegan pizza.  Anyway my new favorite pizza friends is Farmers Tomato Pie by …

Ripple Kids Milk

😋 I had the opportunity to try and review a new product on the market by Ripple Kids.  So its essentially Pea Milk.  I know your reading this and thinking Pea Milk really? I know I thought the same thing too.  But it was amazing!!!!

So first off, I stop eating dairy a while ago.  Needless to say I've been a search for a variety of dairy free products.  I hosted a picnic to try Ripple Kids with other mama's and it was greatly reviewed.  I personally loved that it didn't taste like "vegetable milk" I actually thought I was drinking a milk shake.  It wasn't super sweet and it wasn't bitter it was just right.

I'm eager to try it in different recipes, or in my tea or cereal.  This is a big deal considering that I didn't like dairy milk when I was eating dairy products, but I would totally use Ripple Kids milk on a daily basis.

If the LO is anything like her mama then this milk is here to stay in our family!!! I encourage you'll to try it.
