C- Section Postpartum Basket

C- Section Postpartum Basket

I knew that having a C-section was going to painful and highly inconvenient, and like all pregnant women, I would spend hours stalking mommy blogs and YouTube vlogs for the best and most convenient methods of doing certain things like, birth stories, what’s in my hospital bag, recovery and so on, and then I came across postpartum recovery baskets. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any SA mommy blogs posting about any postpartum recovery baskets or kits,

Meet my son

Meet my son

Please everyone; meet my son, Mogammad Yameen Siers. He is now about a month old. We decided on the name quite early on in the pregnancy. I wanted to somehow reference my dad without actually using his name, Mohammad Yusuf. Yameen means Oath, Right Hand, Right Wing (Of the Army). Yameen has been such a pleasant child, he mostly cries when he wants to feed. He is otherwise so sweet and happy. Loves taking a

What's in my hospital bag?

Hi everyone, I have decided to do a “what’s in baby and my hospital bag” post. I did a lot of research by reading lots of blog posts and articles from baby websites that could help me not over pack. This isn’t my first rodeo but to be honest I can’t even remember what the heck I packed the last time and what I used and didn’t. The hospital provides a list of things that
