        I’d never stopped to think about photography of new borns, this was a really interesting read. I love your point that the baby doesn’t need to be awake for you to capture a lovely photo!ReplyCancel

        • Valentina15 June 2023 - 09:39

          Yeah newborn photography is a “thing” of the past 10 years, at least in the UK. Such a lovely memory to have and yes sleepy or awake they will be either adorable. Thanks for reading.ReplyCancel

      Breast is best. Is it really true? A breastfeeding project

      mum breastfeeding her little girl

      The statement “breast is best” refers to the belief that breastfeeding is the optimal way to feed an infant. But is it really? While there is strong evidence to support the numerous benefits of breastfeeding, it is essential to keep in mind that every family and situation is unique. The decision to breastfeed (or not)...

        I had a similar experience in that Flora wouldn’t latch on and because I’d had such a traumatic birth (emergency C-section and lost over half my blood supply) my body couldn’t produce enough milk. Midwives were no help at all. Eventually the senior consultant told me to use formula to top up. So that’s what we did – started out on breast milk and topped up with formula for every feed. Worked like a charm. Really fed up that the “breast is best” mantra is still so prevalent. It doesn’t work for all women and ultimately, “fed is best” however you do it!ReplyCancel

        • Valentina11 July 2023 - 09:48

          Sorry to hear you had issues as well. Breastfeeding is bloody hard and no one really prepares you for it. So many women live the early stage in guilt and failure because they think it’s their fault.
          We don’t openly talk about it much and things don’t change.
          That’s why I decided to start this project and hopefully it will bring more awareness.
          Thanks for sharing your story Lisa.ReplyCancel

      • Gail21 July 2023 - 13:15

        I agree it should be entirely the mother’s choice. Women should not be bullied into breast feeding if it doesn’t suit them or the baby. ReplyCancel

        • Valentina23 July 2023 - 17:35

          Definitely! But this is still a very hot topic to talk about.ReplyCancel

      3 Reasons Why Photos Can Boost Your Happiness

      Baby smiling.

      There is a saying “Money can’t buy happiness”. I’m sure you all heard it, right? Lots of people disagree with this. Others think it’s partially true, as with money you can buy some of the things that make you happy. Well, of course, truly poor people could be happier with money as they don’t have...

        Photos are so precious. I regret that I didn’t take many of some of my homes and workplaces.  This was before smartphones and photos were taken to Boots or sent away to be developed. ReplyCancel

        • Valentina15 June 2023 - 09:36

          Yes I remember those days. But at least we have printed photos because it was the only way to see them. Not that everything is digital we take loads more photos but print less or hardly any of them. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyCancel

      • Lisa's Notebook3 July 2023 - 17:10

        Yes, you’re right, taking photos acts as a journal, a memory of times and events we will probably forget otherwise. Definitely agree about family photos improving happiness!ReplyCancel

        • Valentina4 July 2023 - 09:22

          Definitely! We look back at photos all the times to remember moments or people. Thanks for stopping by Lisa.ReplyCancel
