Katrina is here today with her fantastic idea to write about building your winter wardrobe as a nursing mama!
I think it is pretty ironic that I am guest posting for a blog that promotes modesty today when during a fifth grade project, I wrote about how I was going to open a women’s clothing store called Risqué. I’m not kidding. That is what can happen when you flippantly use a non-quality thesaurus and don’t double check with a dictionary.
Irony aside, I am here today to talk about my experience as a nursing mother in the winter. Sure, I wear a coat and a hat like every one else when I am outside pushing my swing-loving son, Ryan, in all weather conditions. But what I wear inside the coat? It has been a long journey.
Breastfeeding was tough for me in the beginning. I would have to pray a Hail Mary every time Ryan latched on for the first three months to get me past the first few seconds when I wanted to cry from the initial pain. When I combined that with postpartum frumpiness, I wasn’t very confident.

Katrina writes about all the cedars (big things) and tiny flowers (little things) in my life as a wife, mother and woman over at her blog, Cedars and Tiny Flowers. She has been cracking corny mom jokes long before she was a mom, is normally a month behind on ironing and thinks the best look on a baby is a toss up between a plain white onesie and nothing but a diaper.
