    Non-Tacky Disney Wedding Inspiration | Oh Lovely Day

    Hi everyone! So I apologize for the radio silence on the blog for a bit, but there was a good reason. I had a baby! Calvin came a little early, arriving on 8/14. He’s so yummy and all I want to do is cuddle with him. I do have a couple of posts a week […]

    •  My mom came to town to help for a week (YAY! ) and I got to leave the house alone for the first time in ages today. And I got my hair did. I feel a bit like a normal person again. Thanks to my mom and husby for holding down the fort while I was gone.
       It's like a showdown of breastfeeding pillows over here these days. I was so sore and uncomfortable from breastfeeding the first week that I felt I needed a different pillow. My boppy, while it has the cutest cover made for me by @littleslumber, was the least comfortable. I've been using the My Brest Friend (yes, that's really what it is called) for the last two days and it is a huge improvement! Also pictured is the Dr. Brown's Gia (their bottles are my fave!) but I haven't tried it yet. Which is your favorite bf pillow? And any tips for keeping baby latched to try positions like side bf or laying down? I have a great nurser with a good latch but as soon as I try anything besides cross body while hand expressing he comes off. My back and hands need a little break!
