Reflections on Our Miscarriage: 2 Year Anniversary

Reflections on our Miscarriage: 2 Year Anniversary“They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” Revelation 12:11

I’ve been thinking a lot about this verse lately, meditating on it’s truth and how this “overcoming” is accomplished by action: telling our testimonies. It seems that the Lord has built in a natural healing process for us, as believers, when we choose to tell our hard stories and rejoice in the work that the Lord has done through painful times, and the ways that he has redeemed them.

This week marks 2 years since Matthew and I lost our first baby. I wish there was a specific date that I could set aside specifically to mourn this little one each year, but the way that it happened, it’s kind of hard to pinpoint. Was it the fateful doctor’s appointment that showed us a life not fully formed? Or sometime before that? Or perhaps the date of the surgery, which gave the miscarriage finality? No, I believe the Lord left some ambiguity in this season for me for a reason- to give me time to reflect, to meditate, to ponder what might have been and yet rejoice in the truth of what is- the work that the Lord has done.

Losing our baby was the darkest, most painful time in my entire life. We had been trying to get pregnant for what seemed like ages, and when it finally happened, we were filled with so much joy- only to have it shattered all too soon. We were very blessed to have faithful friends walk through this time in our lives, though I can’t say that I had anyone particularly close to me (that I could lean on on a daily basis whenever needed) that really, truly understood- which was very difficult. It was through that pain, that loneliness, that the Lord spoke and gave me hope- that He would use this loss of life to let me be a voice of truth in the life of other women experiencing loss. I won’t say that it made our loss easier- not at all- but knowing that the Lord was going to redeem this time of sorrow allowed me to more easily process the loss as something that would build the Kingdom at some point. I rejoice in His faithfulness to fulfill that promise.

I first spoke out publicly about our loss the following Mother’s Day- partly to voice my own struggles with the day as a whole, but mostly to let other women know that they weren’t alone. Since that time, I have spoken and written for several different venues about our miscarriage, as well as simply being a listening ear for many women enduring loss.

Why am I telling you all this?

Because I want you to know:

The Lord is faithful to redeem the deep and enveloping pain of the loss of a child.

As women, we are not promised biological children. When we were struggling through that first year or so, wondering if I would ever get pregnant, there was no promise that we would. After our miscarriage, there was no promise that I would conceive again. Even still, after having Hallelujah, there is no promise of another biological child.

But our Father, who is the author and the giver of life, who gives and takes away as He sees fit to build his Kingdom, promises us that if we abide in Him, He will fill us with peace that surpasses understanding, joy in the midst of sorrow, and that He will take our painful moments and redeem them back into times of praise.

Do I praise the Lord for the loss of that sweet life? Of course not. I grieve that sweet baby daily. But I praise the Lord for the many lives that have been ministered to through that loss. I praise the Lord for the women who know that they aren’t alone anymore, because of the testimony that has come through our loss. For the families who no longer feel isolated. For the mothers who know that it’s okay to be angry, hurt, confused, or frustrated on Mother’s Day. I praise the Lord for the privilege of this ministry, for the privilege of being a mother to that sweet baby: if only for a few short weeks physically, but forever in my heart.

If you are enduring the pain of a loss, please know that you are not alone. I am praying strength and peace over you, and that someday, you too may enter into the ministry of “overcoming”, by the words of your testimony. For all of my sisters in the battle of infertility, waiting for your first Mother’s Day, I am praying trust in the Lord over you. Our Father is good, my friends, and He loves you! You’re in my thoughts and prayers today.

I’ve put together a list of resources for families who have experienced loss, and for their family and friends. Please be encouraged and know that there is healing. You can view that list here.

8 Ways to Have a Waste-Free Baby

8 ways to have a waste free babyHave you ever thought about just how much waste a baby creates? If you have ever changed a diaper, the answer may be yes- and I’m not talking about #2, either! The modern way of raising a baby is full of “throw-aways”, from disposable diapers to toys used for just a few months to clothing that never fits and beyond. Babies can create a lot of waste!

When I found out I was pregnant with Halle, I decided to make it my mission to have a “waste free baby”. Surprisingly, it hasn’t been all that hard! Here’s some choices that we made to cut down on our waste and make raising our girl as sustainable as possible:

Get hand-me-downs whenever possible.

This one is HUGE. It’s so easy to want to buy all of the cuteness for your incoming bundle of joy, but in reality, they are just going to poop and spit up on it. And not just clothing, either- big baby items like bouncers, swings, even strollers. Check with friends to see what they can lend you before filling out a registry so that you can only ask for what you need.

If you have to buy it, don’t buy it until you need it.

Keep receipts for everything you get at your shower! then, if you don’t need it, take it back. Resist the temptation to go out and buy things that you think you might need at some point. Instead, wait until you know you need them, then decide if it’s worth the cost. This cuts down on tons of extra purchases.

Breastfeed exclusively.

This is a touchy one, but if we are talking sustainability, you can’t beat breastfeeding. Breastfeeding exclusively for as long as possible is one of the greenest, most healthy decisions you can make for your child. It takes some babies and mamas up to six weeks or more to get it all figured out, so find help and don’t give up if you’re having trouble- it’s worth it. Here’s some things I wish I’d known about breastfeeding.

Practice Baby-Led Weaning.

When it does come time to introduce real food to complement your breastmilk feedings, skip the purees and head straight for the real food. Baby-Led Weaning is essentially allowing baby to introduce themselves to different foods at their own pace- so, you simply give the baby what you’re eating, and let them have at it. While some may get on the floor, and technically be “wasted”, you aren’t wasting time, resources, or half a jar of baby food at each meal.

Use cloth diapers…

This is another huge one! The average baby can go through up to $3,000 worth of disposable diapers before they are potty trained. A very nice cloth diaper stash will run between $4-500 and will diaper multiple children over the years. Yes, you will use water to wash the diapers (which you can then line-dry) but this is nothing compared to filling landfills with poopy plastic chemical diaper bombs. Here’s some more reasons to choose cloth, plus some easy steps to get started!

…and cloth wipes!

Once you’re using cloth diapers, you ought to just make the leap to cloth wipes as well. It’s easy to make your own, or buy them cheaply. You can even make your own wipes solution! Simply use a wipe and throw it in with the dirty diapers. Wash them all together. Easy peasy.

Invest in toys that will stand the test of time (and development).

This is something that I feel very strongly about- not surrounding my child with mindless plastic toys that are meant to entertain her, not help her grow and develop. Instead, we use toys made from sustainable materials and that are (for the most part) battery-free. These are toys that are made from wood, recycled BPE-free plastics (very few), and natural rubbers. They are “imagination builders”- stacking cups, rings, blocks, etc- that can grow with Halle, as they serve as tethers now, they can later become castle blocks or rings for stuffed animals to jump through. They are investment pieces, but they will last. Here’s some more great reasons to choose wooden toys, as well as some of my favorite brands.

Lead by example.

It’s an incredible value to instill in your children- that people and experiences have lasting value, compared to the waning value of toys. This starts with us, as parents, focusing on being waste-free in our own lives, and leading by example!

What is one small change you could make to keep your home more waste-free? How about in your children’s lives?

The Ultimate Lactation Smoothie

The Ultimate Lactation Smoothie

One of the biggest worries of a new breastfeeding mom is whether or not her little one is getting enough to eat. It’s impossible to tell how much your baby is getting without a bottle, so you are left to count wet diapers and look at weight gain- it can be a little stressful!

Because of this, many new moms rely on different foods and supplements to boost their milk supplies. There are many different tactics, ranging from ‘power pumping hours’ to drinking a responsible amount of dark beer (my favorite). There are countless recipes for muffins and cookies and what have you.

Eating baked things just makes me feel bloated, so I concocted my own lactation booster: The Ultimate Lactation Smoothie. It’s chock full of galactogogues- foods that boost milk production. One of these babies each morning is not only full of great nutrition for you and baby, but will keep you full AND, hopefully, boost your supply.

Put all ingredients in blender in the order listed (this makes blending easier). If necessary, add extra liquid- water is fine, but almond milk or coconut water will add nutritional benefits, too. It tastes a lot like an oatmeal cookie :) Drink up!

Please remember that every body is different, and how you react to certain food may be different from how I react.

4 Easy Steps to Starting With Cloth Diapers

4 Easy Steps to Get Started With Cloth Diapers

Hello, my friends! From baby wearing to intentional parenting to essential oils, we’ve got a lot of series’ going on here at Feed Me Mama! Today, I would like to introduce one more to you: Cloth Diaper Basics! Cloth diapering is one of the most rewarding choices I have made so far for my daughter, but I know that it can be a very overwhelming choice in the beginning. Over the next month or so, we will be looking at different types of diapers, common issues, and the best places to find diapers on a budget. But, for today, we will answer everyone’s first question: Where do I start?

Cloth Diaper Guide

Get a crash course on the basics.

A little googling and blog-reading will show you the different types of diapers- we are going to be profiling some of them in the next few weeks. For a little overview, you can read into my decision to use cloth diapers here.

Take a look at your family’s lifestyle.

There are many different kinds of diapers, and each lends itself to a particular family style or need. Pockets and All-In-Ones are great for families where cloth diapers may be a bit foreign, as they are the most like regular diapers. Likewise, prefold diapers are the most economical, making them a great pick for a family on a tight budget. If you are concerned with eco-friendliness, there are several options for you as well. If you’re on the go a lot and need to be able to change quickly, maybe a hybrid diaper with flushable liners is a good idea for you. Look at what stands out in your mind as a reason to cloth diaper or something that is important in your family, and keep that in mind.

Cloth Diaper Guide

Get advice from veteran cloth diapering families…

…and don’t just ask the moms! Dad’s opinion is important, too. If you know families that use cloth diapers, ask them what they like and don’t like, what they would do differently, what their favorite kind of diaper is. Some families prefer velcro, others like snaps, still others pins or snappis. Their reasoning might help you see the advantages of a certain type for your family, too.

Finally, read this book.

This has been my go-to resource for all of my cloth diapering questions! You really could skip most of the other suggestions in this post and just read this :) From detergent recommendations and money-savings breakdowns to overviews of the different types of diapers and everything in between, Confessions of a Cloth Diaper Convert will win you over and have you feeling confident in no time!

What questions do you have about cloth diapering? Leave them in the comments so they can be answered later on in the series!

5 Tips For Hiking With A Baby

5 Tips For Hiking With A Baby

This weekend, my husband and I took our 3 month old daughter on her very first hike! I like hiking, but this is something that my husband absolutely loves, so it was a very special day for him as well. Hiking and outdoor exploring are great ways to spend time together and enjoy God’s creation as a family. It was a beautiful day here in Maryland, so after lunch we set out on our journey!

Pretty much as soon as we got to the park, I realized that there was a lot to think about for the day- I had forgotten sunscreen and snacks, and left my water bottle in the car. However, I wasn’t the most unprepared person in the woods that day- we actually ran into a couple who were pushing their baby in a stroller, trying to cross a stream! I thought to myself, “there’s better ways to do this than fighting with a stroller in a stream”. And with that, I give you my 5 tips for hiking with a baby!

Herbs to Boost Milk Production (plus GIVEAWAY!)

increase milk supply

Today’s post is the second in a series on making more milk! Join us over the next few weeks as we look at different ways of naturally increasing milk supply.

One of the most common worries of mothers is that they are not producing enough milk for their babies. Many things can effect milk supply- stress, diet, baby’s eagerness to nurse, schedule, sleep- and it’s easy to get overwhelmed and just want to throw in the towel.

This, in conjunction with a good diet, is a great way to ensure that your supply stays up and is meeting your baby’s needs. Adding in foods like oatmeal, leafy greens, flaxseeds, and brewer’s yeast will also help your supply- but more on that later!

Using herbs is a great way to boost your supply, too. There are herbs that are considered ‘lactogenic’, meaning that they increase the production of milk in humans. Some of these herbs include:

Herbs can be taken in several ways, the most common being capsules, teas, and tinctures. Today, we are giving away an amazing milk-increasing herbal mix called Mama’s Milk Tea from the Bulk Herb Store, and it can be taken any of these ways!

Mama’s Milk Tea contains red raspberry leaf, fennel seed, nettle leaf, fenugreek seed, dandelion leaf, and blessed thistle- so many herbs to boost your supply and the quality of your breast milk! I am using this as a tea regularly, and I notice an almost immediate  boost in supply each time I take the tea. It has a pleasant, palatable taste- not too sweet or bitter, and not overwhelmingly green or maple/pancakey (from the fenugreek) either. However, if you’re looking for a flavorful tea to have with your afternoon snack, this probably isn’t it :)

As milk production goes, using herbs is an easy, affordable way to boost your supply without choking down large pills or rubbing yourself with oils several times a day. Make a quart of tea in the morning and drink it throughout the day, and you’ll be good to go!

Some more information on Mama’s Milk Tea from the Bulk Herb Store:

  • This dry herb mixture can be made into a tincture. As a tincture, it would be even more effective than as a tea. Directions for making tinctures can be found on the Preparing Remedies page. Just remember to drink lots of water with it.
  • The mixture can also be ground up into powder and encapsulated.
  • Because of the Fenugreek, avoid using it internally during pregnancy.
  • This recipe is not just for nursing mamas. Because of the cleansing properties of these herbs, anyone can benefit from their cleansing effects on the liver, gall bladder and kidneys.
  • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (except during pregnancy), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most herbs, this mixture should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is great, but certainly not necessary. Following these suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.

So, you wanna win a bag of Mama’s Milk Tea? Here you go! Giveaway is open to anyone living in the US. Giveaway winner will be announced on Facebook on Sunday, as well as contacted by email. If there is no response within 24 hours, another winner will be selected. Good luck and happy nursing!

The Busy Mom’s Tool for Real Food Meal Planning

The Busy Mom's Tool for Real Food Meal Planning!

Good morning, my real-food loving, busy bee mama friends!

You don’t have to read this blog for very long to know that I am passionate about feeding my family wholesome, nourishing food- but also sticking to my budget. Meal planning has been a true God-send for me- sitting down and taking stock of what I have in my home and planning meals and shopping accordingly allows me to diversify my menu, not waste food, and be more efficient in the kitchen. Here’s the problem: I get stuck in ruts. There are several things I make on an almost weekly basis: curry, chili, and some type of pasta dish top the list. While these foods are good and satisfy our family’s dietary needs while still being frugal, they are tired. And I’m tired of them.

Today, I want to introduce you to a new real-food-mama tool that I am really excited about: Tradishen! Tradishen is your premier real food recipe and meal planning site. There’s nothing quite like it out there right now!

The Busy Mom's Tool for Real Food Meal Planning

We’re so excited to be able to bring you all the great features that Tradishen offers!

100% Real Food, No Compromises

Tradishen is committed to offering only 100% real food recipes. No compromises and no short cuts. That means that if it’s not a whole food, you won’t find it on our site. You will never find:

  • Artificial colors
  • Artificial flavors
  • Vegetable oils
  • Artificial sweeteners
  • GMOs
  • Premade “ingredients” (canned soups, spice packets, cake mixes, etc.)

We include only wholesome, real ingredients. You’ll never have to wonder if our recipes are healthy for your family, or sort through “cheater” or less-than-nourishing options — they’re all high-quality! So far we have over 500 recipes in our database, and we’re continually adding more. There are plenty of options to feed your family well!

Find The Recipes You Want, Easily

If you have special dietary needs — or are just in the mood for a certain food — you can find it easily on Tradishen. Search our database by checking “flags” to filter your results. You can choose the ethnicity that you want, the main ingredient, or the course. You can also find recipes that are:

  • NO Soy
  • NO Dairy
  • NO Gluten
  • NO Grains
  • NO Wheat
  • NO Sugar
  • NO Seafood
  • NO Tree nuts
  • NO Eggs
  • Vegetarian
  • GAPS-friendly
  • Kosher-friendly

Select as many of these “flags” as you want, so that you only get the recipes that will work for your family. You could choose “chicken,” “beef,” and “fish” (avoiding pork recipes) plus “gluten free” and “dairy free” to find recipes that are based on chicken, beef, or fish but contain no gluten and no dairy. This saves you lots of time sorting through recipes that don’t work for your dietary needs — no other site out there offers this!

1422620_10102404556765994_322069773138719474_n

Save, Print, Rate

Every recipe can be saved to your personal recipe box, so that you always have your favorites easily available. Your recipe box is viewable from the “my recipes” tab. You can scroll through them, or if you start typing, it will suggest potential recipe titles that you’ve save and may have forgotten about!

You can rate each recipe you try, as well, so you can find your favorites (or the ones that others love, too).

Plus, every recipe is printer friendly. Print out your favorites and add them to a binder so that they’re easily accessible in your kitchen.

Create Your Variations

Love a recipe but made a few tiny changes to suit your family’s tastes better? Don’t forget what you did — save a copy of the recipe and add your changes. This variation of the recipe will be in your personal recipe box so you don’t lose it.

If you have special allergy needs, this is a great option too — choose a recipe that needs a little tweaking to meet your needs, then save those changes, so that even more recipes on the site work for you! (Many of our dairy-containing recipes have been tested with coconut milk or oil and work great dairy-free too.)

Add Your Own Recipes

Do you have a family-favorite recipe that you just love, but isn’t in our database? You can add it! Simply type (or copy and paste) your recipe into our system. It will be visible only to you.

This way, you aren’t just limited to the recipes we offer when creating your meal plans — see more below!

Learn About Real Food

If you’re new to real food, you might feel overwhelmed when you see recipes calling for soaked beans, sourdough starter, homemade chicken stock, and other real food ingredients. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. You’ll find both written and (eventually) video tutorials, showing you exactly how to do these things.

Create Your Meal Plan

Nothing saves more time in the kitchen (not to mention money at the grocery store) than having a meal plan. With Tradishen, you can quickly and easily create your own meal plan, pulling recipes from your personal recipe box. Select the date and time of day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, etc.) and begin typing a recipe title, then select the one you want from the drop-down list that appears. It’s that easy! This feature is part of our “basic” and “premium” membership packages.

Get Meal Planning Help

Do you find meal planning overwhelming? We can help! Every week, we release two new meal plans — a “traditional” menu, and a gluten/dairy free menu. Get 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, 5 dinners, and 1 dessert on every plan! Choose which one(s) you want to use. You may use only the dinners, or you may use all the recipes, or anything in between.

Found a recipe your family doesn’t prefer? You can easily delete and replace it with any other recipe from our database.

Throughout our meal plans, we take your budget into account. We choose recipes that use seasonal and frugal ingredients, and we repeat the same ingredients in different ways throughout the week. That way, you’re not wasting a bit of leftover chicken or spinach, nor do you have a bunch of “food waste” at the end of the week. We often use dinner leftovers in the next day’s lunch, to keep it quick and easy. We made the meal plans the same way we meal plan for our own families, because we understand your needs — we’re right there with you.

You’ll get access to both meal plans, too, so you can choose whichever one works better for you, or even pull from both! This feature is part of our “premium” membership package.

10294242_10102404556785954_5920958123166837787_n

Baby Wearing with Rockin’ Baby {GIVEAWAY!}

Win a HERO RING SLING from Rockin' Baby- {GIVEAWAY!}Hello, my friends! This weekend will not only be my first Mother’s Day, but my five year anniversary of marriage! I wanted to do something really special to celebrate, and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. This weekend, we are giving away a beautiful Rockin’ Baby Orange Hero Sling!

If you’ve never heard of Rockin’ Baby before, you’ll soon see why their company and mission is the perfect fit for this Mother’s Day giveaway. Rockin Baby makes baby wearing slings- both pouch slings and ring slings- their signature sling being their Orange Hero Sling. But what sets them apart is when you purchase a sling from Rockin Baby, a Hero sling is donated to their mission in Haiti, where they educate mothers on the importance of baby wearing and teach them how to do wear safely. This not only increases productivity for the women, but increases the baby’s health as well. Rockin Baby’s “mother to mother” vision is a beautiful one- so we’re celebrating them, and all mothers and babies around the world!

I was blessed to receive an Orange Hero Sling to review before this post, and I have to say- I really enjoy it. The sling is very high quality, comfortable, very easily adjusted, and best of all- not too hot! My only complaint was that it didn’t come pre-threaded into the rings, so if this had been my first ring sling, I might have been a bit confused- however, there are instructions on their website to help. On the whole, we really love this addition to our babywearing collection. I’ve even worn it on decently long walks with very little discomfort- which says a lot for a ring sling! And it’s great for wearing around Baltimore during baseball season too :) I especially appreciate knowing that the high quality of this product is the same as the slings that my sisters in Haiti are receiving as well. This is a company that is truly making a difference!

So here’s the exciting part- you can win a Orange Hero Sling of your very own this weekend, just in time for Mother’s Day! The winner will be announced via Facebook on Sunday night, and also contacted by email. Good luck!
