  • Losing weight while breastfeeding

    Hi! Just curious to see if anyone had any tips on how to safely lose weight while breastfeeding? With very limited time and always feeling hungry, I’m really struggling! It’s been months (baby is already on solids) but I feel like I’ve completely hit a plateau. Thanks!

    I strongly recommend to see a doctor. Dont research yourself. Please do visit clinic soon.
  • When my baby is due,

    Well, I believe no one ever knows when a child is about to be brought in this world but we all know for sure when there isn’t enough oxygen for everyone around.

    There is always enough oxygen for new life. 🙂

  • Hi y’all

    Hi all! So I’m needing help. I live in TX and I’m currently pregnant with twins in July, me and my husband are going through a TOUGH divorce. Long story short he cheated and decided to leave once he was caught. We’ve been separated for 3mo now and he says he wants nothing to do with the babies. I am living with my mom currently and we have nothing. I’ve applied for wic, gone to local churches and collected some diapers and formula samples and some clothing that was donated but that’s it! I don’t have anything else for them. Does anyone in TX have anything they could donate? It’s a boy and girl again due in July. I will post my registry name is Cloe Bradley in TX at Amazon and Walmart but please please please don’t feel obligated donations are so appreciated I’m trying to find a job but can’t start until 6 weeks after babies are here.

  • A Birthing Class Tailored to You

    Are you a new or expecting Mom? Are you scared and nervous about what’s going to happen when you welcome your little one into the world? Has too much time gone by since your last baby that you forgot how to do certain things? Are you thinking about taking a class on childbirth but not sure which one to take? Do you take a class through the hospital with 20 or more people and get a general tour of the maternity ward or would you like a class that’s intimate and personal based where you can be focused on and have all your questions answered? This is where Mommy’s Way Infant Care and Doula Services can help.  Our desire is to help you have a birthday that you will cherish for a lifetime.  To help you be able to enjoy your precious baby from pregnancy through the transition to home!  As all mothers deserve nurturing care, support and education.

She is willing to help however she can and is a nurturing person with a heart of gold. Debbie is also extremely knowledgeable as a pre-birth and birth doula as well as postpartum doula.” “I can’t say enough about how wonderful Debbie has been!! She is an absolute pleasure to work with, and to be with. She knew my desire was to have a completely natural birth and she helped me achieve that” “ Chelsea is truly top-notch, and I can’t thank her enough for helping us through the birth of our son.” “Chelsea is a wonderful doula that I would recommend to absolutely anyone. She is very supportive and knowledgeable of all a mother’s options during labor and childbirth. She is not afraid to help you when you need it and don’t have the words to ask. “ “With Chelsea, it felt like having a great friend who also happened to know just what to do throughout the process.” “Johanna was amazing. Throughout labor, she had a really positive energy and made me feel supported and safe.I’m so thankful that she was there for me. She offered clarity, positivity, mental support, and a non-judgemental attitude. I would highly recommend her!” “I am so thankful to have had Johanna for the birth of my third child. Through the entire process, i really felt like she had me and my baby’s best interest at heart. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a doula. You will be thankful to have her by your side.” “Johanna will forever hold a very special place in our families hearts.

  • Unswaddle 5 month all with eczema and pacificier

    Hi all the super mommies! I have 5-month-old baby boy and he’s starting to roll over soon, in a matter of time, cuz I can see him arching is back quite often when he lays on his back… So I’m thinking and preparing myself to unswaddle him!! TAADA (horrifying) He’s been swaddle since day one and can only fall asleep with it and with a pacifier! And he’s been having this eczema skin which makes him scratch himself all the time, (his face, legs…most of the time bloody! I have his nails cut and trim every day). I tried once to unswaddle him with one arm and he just kept knocking his dummy out and scratch himself… So my question is what would you do? andy similar stories and successful or unsuccessful stories or tips? At this moment we are room sharing and the sleep training is quite successful (i don’t need to hold him or rock him to sleep, he can sleep by himself after the bed routine) But I guess once I unswaddle him, everything will be different huh?

    Posted March 3, 2018 at 10:02 pm
    The itching is the worst! Be sure and chat with his doctor about medical management of eczema. Ther…

  • Boggie Sucker Machine

    We were given an electronic nose plunger thing at my baby shower. It plays music and does am awesome job of clearing our little boys nose. We normally don’t use it though because he hates it and screams like we’re torturing him and he had gotten good at letting us use the old school nose plunger thing a little. But lately he has had a little cold and his nose is running like crazy and the old school one is just not cutting it. I have had to use the battery operated machine one and it works amazingly and gets everything out of his nose every time I just feel like complete crap doing it because the whole time he’s crying screaming and trying to get away from me. And not a normal tantrum or whiny on ornery cry his whole face turns red his body stiffens up and even though I don’t think it’s hurting him and he acts just fine when it’s all done it kills me. I wish the old school nose plunger saying worked just as good as the machine one does but it just doesn’t . please help!! should I keep using the machine or just do the best I can with the old school one???
