Adding a new baby into the family is a huge transition for everyone including siblings. We know that after the birth of a baby older siblings can really struggle with feeling left out. Some children will embrace the role of big sister or brother and happily help out with bringing diapers and bathing baby, but many will regress waking up more often in the night, whine and become clingy, or fight with other older siblings.
If you are battling with low breast milk supply you may have heard about Lactation cookies. As a postpartum and infant care doula supporting families in the GTA and beyond, I am often supporting breastfeeding people with increasing their milk supply, however, I rarely make lactation cookies. The truth is, I’m always so disappointed with recipes I have find online.
