This is so simple!
(Why would Nature spend all of that energy to make babies if mum could not feed them?).
We need to know something . . .
It would likely help make sense of all that we go through . .
Who knows what do . .?
I am asking simple questions of my friends. .
We did not have people telling us to ‘top up’ with formula . .
We did not even have bottles – we had breasts.
We were not living no w though.
I am after how we negotiated the real dramas you may also have .
BUT we did not have some of the dilemmas facing new mums.
This is one mum’s answers.
Life is NOT medical. . .
If you are having some trouble with feeding your baby – reach out to someone who has been there before.
AS with most thing – life experience is all that matters.
What is written.being taught goes in and out of favour.
Life goes on regardless . .
THIS IS NOT MEDICAL – LIFE . . .
All mammals can . . .
Baby 1 – Imagine living in a cottage with electricity and phone – but no sanitation . .
Local river was my ‘bath’ – so . .breastfeeding was a given – no water on tap where I was then living.
Blood = Milk
Look also to this amazing resource . .
(Perhaps also go to this area on another of my sites?)
Water . .at least 4 litres daily – no milk? Can be fixed – just guzzle – like cows must .
Support . . . where is your tribe?
Looking after new mums
All cultures had to mind the new mums – as the future is assured when we do.
Blood and Blood energy – is what is also needed – see more here.
Heather’s learnings started HERE – life
I was a vegan .
Lost over a litre of blood at birth – not a great start
HAD to breastfeed this wee lad.
Vaginal seeding – just in case ‘insurance’.
How to make sure nipples are happy . . the old way . .
How we DID not have troubles – we HAD to do what we were told to.
How to win with nipples
This ‘nipple recipe’ won – until I did not use it with my last baby
Thrush in cracked nipples – not funny!
More on nipple care here
More than food/drink
Recipe – after blood transfusions and a small handful of raw almonds with each snack – plus so much water drunk.
This is not a smart idea – look at the 40 days staying inside a house – I was running my 7 year old around to soccer etc plus off teaching from baby’s age – week 3. Women have always managed what HAS to happen . .
Interesting times. . . how to keep feeding a dying bub in NICU
What I did . .
20 B complex tablets daily
Had acupuncture to calm me down
LOTS of water and food .. Also use these tricks . .
After C section
Can we feed a baby and recover from massive abdominal surgery?
With grace – and lots of intention – some may say luck – but I did not deviate from what I intended.
Still more here
What about the ‘helpers’ NOT helping?
Surround yourself with women who have . .
We may be older – ask – it was what we our our hearts and souls into .
Why would we feed our babies?
Baby needs to be nourished by your body STILL.
NOT A BANK . . More you use – more you make.
When you want less/no breast milk
Stop any Blood boosting herbs as this will make better and more abundant milk.
Avoid all cold exposure. .
Take the cold out – navel cupping – see more here.
NO elder’s wisdom would have suggested this.
Maybe also read through this?
iodine – topical on body – palm sized piece a day can go on breast as well – maybe alternate breasts – will clear up the lumps and the low thyroid function.
Also see what I have in the manual – available online instantly . .
Best value – the resources – download instantly and get started on new life – so easy . .
Always there is an answer – please read Hints from a trio of triplet mums

Or by email.
We can organise a Skype/messenger chat if necessary with bank transfer of CC over the phone ..
I am not a L.C. or midwife – I am one who is likely able to help.
A continuity of care provider.
I know that decades later we still hold these stories as though it were yesterday.
Mothering needs to be instinctive
There is nothing medical in being a mammal.
All of us can breastfeed – or we would be not here.
Problem has arisen with all of us handing over sovereignty.
Your job as a mum is to fiercely make sure natural happens.
Anything/anyone getting in your way – your job to assert yourself.
You need to be empowered all through the pregnancy.
YOU are the only one who is the mum – and as parents YOU both bear consequences.
Ideally you become more aware – I wrote my manual – so you do know what to do ..
and before the state you may find yourself in.
I wish this new version of maternity – me 42 years ago – knew what I have collated for you.
Myself as a Newly born mum
Here is my book – and DVDs come to – as in 2005
I can likely undo the trauma as I will post soon – of several mum’s experience – without me even touching them!
I am conducting a wee survey and am writing up other mums’ stories – as we all have something to say –
My Wiser Older Women project – it does dredge up a lot though.
I am so sorry for all of you who have not had what is your baby’s birth right – an easy pregnancy and birth and life – as two things missing
And avoid all ice!
