Breastmilk Jewelry Review

Attention moms! Have you ever been interested in jewelry made from breastmilk, placenta, hair, or ashes?

I’ve always wanted something to save from my breastfeeding journey after my son weans. Our journey has been riddled with difficulties like our NICU stay, his tongue and lip tie, and many other frustrations that made breastfeeding difficult. Despite those things, we made it through and I wanted something to hang on to from this time in our lives.

Precious Mammaries Breast Milk Jewelry and DNA Keepsakes allowed me an opportunity to have jewelry made out of breastmilk and I am loving the necklace they made. You can learn more about the process and the company in this post. http://rebeccalemke.com/2017/09/17/precious-mammaries-breast-milk-jewelry-review/

Some women think they are superior for breastfeeding, or having a “natural birth” or what have you. Even non-parent members of society can fall prey to these types of attitudes, leveling their expectations of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting at unsuspecting, emotionally vulnerable mothers. I refuse to participate in the “my horse is bigger than your horse” comparison game that many women play, which lends itself to being silent on how I gave birth.

In this case, I chose to break my silence speak up in hopes of offering support and encouragement. This is my story on how I had an emergency induction without an epidural or stadol. I hope it can encourage a few of my friends (and readers) who are nearing the end stages of their pregnancies and want to be prepared for the possibility of having an induction.

I had an emergency induction out of necessity. I know this situation can be scary, especially if you were expecting to have an uneventful birth, but emergency inductions don’t have to be a bad thing. I was induced for several different medical problems that I had throughout my pregnancy…

What I Did Today – Mommy and Son Date

Road Trip Playlist!

One of the highlights from our trip was my husband asking me if “Body Like A Backroad” was “Body Like A Backhoe”.

During our recent car trip to Minneapolis, we had a lot of time on our hands to listen to music. My husband and I have extremely varied musical tastes. He hates country, and I love country. So we listened to a little bit of everything so he wouldn’t go too crazy. Here are some of our favorites!

Everything That Went Wrong On Our Road Trip to Minneapolis

​We went on a road trip recently and while it was great for the most part, we did hit a few bumps along the way. The worst one is the last thing in the video so if you have a weak stomach, click out a little early.

How My Toddler Entertains Himself (No screens)

I had a friend ask me how my toddler entertains himself with screen time, so I made a video of the different things he likes to do. 🙂

Pet Goose

My son saw a goose outside of our local grocery store. Now he wants a pet goose. Anyone know if you can get one at a pet store? 😂

My First Time Calling Poison Control

Have you ever had to call poison control? I made my first call this past week because my son swallowed something he shouldn’t have.
