Khumo’s first birthday party

Wait, can I call it a birthday party if it was just us… her parents, brother, aunt and grandparents?!  I decided to spare myself the headache of throwing YET ANOTHER big celebration, especially after Lesedi’s 8th birthday party and my 30th birthday luncheon just a few weeks ago! She’s only one, which means she will be napping for most of the day or be grumpy around a huge crowd and everyone wanting a piece of […]

Belle Lait: beautiful feeding bras for the modern mom

Belle Lait

I’ve written about extensively about breast milk and my breastfeeding journey over the last few weeks, but what you don’t know is that up until a few days ago, I was wearing nothing remotely close to beautiful feeding bras. Instead, I wore shady sports bras which I bought while I was pregnant, because they were stretchy and offered comfort when my nips were violently sensitive. The reason I’m not in thaaat situation anymore […]

8 week baby and postpartum update

I can’t believe that Khumo [aka Little Lady] is 8 weeks old already!! Since this is my first update, it’s quite long, so it might be a good idea to grab some coffee. I’m still amazed at how each baby and experience can be so different. Although the first few weeks had a bumpy start, with the recovery needed after a c-section, coupled with my engorged boobies and urinary tract infection, the time […]
