The latest research shows that the more caesarean surgeries you have, the riskier the subsequent surgeries become for you and your baby. But circumstances vary from person to person and pregnancy to pregnancy and play a role in determining whether the benefits of a repeat C-section outweigh the risks.
As a parent, the new responsibilities you face can be
overwhelming. Keeping such a small human fed, clothed, warm, healthy, and happy
may feel like a lot!
Luckily, you’re not in this alone. Whether your partner, parents, or
friends are pitching in, hopefully you have a support system to lean upon.
One person you probably never considered as a source of help is your baby!
However, when it comes to that first breastfeeding session, your little one is
actually capable of doing most of the work themselves. Seem crazy?
Allow us to introduce you to the magic of the breast crawl…

Every parent I know would love to stay calm, cool, and collected no matter what their kid throws at them. But when your toddler unspools a roll of toilet paper into the toilet bowl and flushes, overflowing musty wastewater all over your hardwood floors? It’s human nature. Your emotions are bound to get the better of you. While you clean up the mess, you might huff, stomp, or raise your voice in frustration. So much for being a calm and loving parent no matter what.
