Pregnancy Advice and Breastfeeding Tips From An Experienced Mama
I have been a Mama for many years, I had my first baby boy in 2004. Having a baby is overwhelming but also such a joyful time. I have felt that same excitement with every pregnancy and birth of my baby boys(all 4 of my LO’s) I have also learned so many new, old tips and advice that’s helpful for new mothers to be. As well as after having a baby with breastfeeding to a sick LO which is never fun(scary for moms no matter how many LO’s we have).
Being pregnant for me was tough because I got such terrible back pain from the Sacroiliac Joint Pain/Sciatica Joint Pain, which got worse with each new pregnancy. So the first 2 pregnancies I was younger, slimmer and didn’t have much pain at all. But I noticed the older I got and more weight I had put on really put a lot of stress and discomfort on my back, I did learn techniques that helped my pregnancy joint pain relief to a minimal, which I will share with you. Yoga stretches are a great daily routine and to start your day, but also can be done throughout the day. Warm baths with epsom salt are very relaxing for the muscles right before bed, so you can sleep better. But a must purchase is the body pregnancy pillow, they have in cute colors and does wonders on your sleep and back. You can click below and find this amazing pillow that will be the last pregnancy pillow you buy. But also can even be used after baby for breastfeeding or just laying LO down on the big fluffy pillow.

My biggest secret I used throughout my pregnancy was a maternity belt I purchased at Babies R Us for about $20 back in 2013. It literally changed my life of pregnancy discomfort pains and pressure of the baby. I was working full time as well and I was so grateful to wear that daily to relieve back pain while on my feet for hours. You can also buy it online Amazon has some cheaper ones and Ebay too. Also a good tip is to try to get a pregnancy massage when you can 2x monthly is great, more the better. Heating pad helped when it got really inflamed and put your feet up when you can. Especially after a long day of working and on your feet all day for hours. Sit down and prop some pillows up with your feet right on top for an hour or so will help with those swollen feet and ankles(cankles LOL eww).
