An At-Home Mastitis Cure

At Home Mastitis Cure

First of all, I am not a doctor. And second, I know that when you've got mastitis, you need to treat it right away. Like immediately. Call your doctor and make an appointment because without treatment, it can be life-threatening. So what I am talking about today should only be attempted with your doctor's permission. Get it? Got it? Good.

I've had what my doctor calls "the start of mastitis" three times now. And if you haven't, believe me it is no joke. I didn't have any fever and it went away within a few days without any treatment but man was it painful. Like really really really painful.

I just wish I had known this at home cure for mastitis earlier because I would have killed to get rid of that pain earlier than I did.

You know that gorgeous mama I blogged about last week with the stunning Southern California beach maternity session? That gorgeous mama, Holly, gave me this "recipe," courtesy of her midwife. She had the unfortunate opportunity to try it out and it said it worked like a charm! So I wanted to pass it along to all of you in case you, too, have the unfortunate opportunity to try it out too.

At Home Cure for Mastitis

- Get in bed and REST
- Drink as much water as humanly possible and add a drop of grapefruit seed oil
- Eat raw garlic
- Take 5,000-7,000mg of Vitamin C (too much can give you diarrhea so do what you can!)
- Heat and massage the breast
- Nurse on the breast as much as you can
- Do as much skin-to-skin with your baby as possible

And that's all, folks!

Give it a try and let me know if it works! Hopefully I will never have a chance to try it out and I pray that you won't either. But it's here just in case!

34 Valentine's Day Gifts for Kids

Sponsored with love, by Etsy

Growing up, I always loved Valentine's Day. I got to pick out the perfect Valentine's Day cards for everyone in my class, carefully write each of their names on the cards, and then put in the most delicious chocolate that I had picked out myself.

And then on Valentine's Day morning, I would wake up to a fun gift from my parents, always sitting on the kitchen table waiting for me to open before school. It was never anything big, but it sure made me feel loved. 

Valentine's Day isn't just about your husband or wife but it is about love all around -- Love for your parents, for your friends, for your kids, and if you are a dog mom, then for your pup too!

Since this will be Ava's first Valentine's Day, I definitely plan on carrying on the tradition that my parents had every year and if you want to do the same, then these gift ideas are just for you! I know that it is still January but we are about three weeks away from the day of love so you better get to thinking. I've come up with 34 Valentine's Day gifts for kids and babies that are the perfect little gifts to show them how much you love them.
