 🤱 Being a new mama, breastfeeding is a challenging ballgame that I’m still learning to enjoy. Anything that makes it easier is a big plus for me hence I’m constantly wearing the @targetaus maternity camisole. What I need to do now is to invest in a myriad of bottoms to jazz things up a little!  If you’re interested, head over to GIRLWITHFLOWERS to read about some of the breastfeeding tricks I practice that may also encourage your journey as well. #linkinprofile
 This was taken around 1.5 weeks post-partum. I brought this @gap dress to the hospital with me because of the button-down construction, which was great for 🤱. What are some of your must-haves for your hospital bag? Head over to GIRLWITHFLOWERS if you would like to know what mine are #linkinprofile #mama
 The bun is out of the oven and has been out for 6 weeks!  Being a mom has got to be the toughest gig I’ve ever done but it’s worth the blood, sweat and tears (literally!) If you’re one who likes reading birth stories, head over to GIRLWITHFLOWERS to read about mini M’s rather dramatic birth (to me anyways!) I would like to hear your story too! ❤️ #linkinprofile
