Breast Feeding: Increasing Milk Supply

Breast Feeding: Increasing Milk Supply

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about increasing my milk supply, and what everyone recommended to me after I posted an Instagram story about my low milk supply. Thanks so much for all the recommendations! I’ve been going away a lot (to weddings, and bachelorettes etc.) and so I came back in a complete state. I was exclusively breast feeding, and now I was needing to do formula top-up’s because Livvy was still hungry post a feed. Just when…

Our Sleep Routine & Tips

Our Sleep Routine & Tips

Sleep deprivation is something that every mama has felt, and no wonder why it’s used as torture. It’s the absolute worst, and some mama’s experience less sleep than others. That’s why I thought I would share what we do and have learnt what works for us, along the way. This post is in no way a sleep training manual. I’m not a qualified sleep trainer either, however, many of these tips came to me from trainers, other experienced mama’s, and…

Environ Focus Care™ Youth+ & Moisture+ Range

Environ Focus Care™ Youth+ & Moisture+ Range

It’s time to focus on FLAWLESS. I’ve been really worrying about the fine lines forming on my face, as well as my skin looking and feeling dehydrated, sensitive and dull. While I can try purchase all the make up in the world, having a great canvas is the ultimate KEY. I even considered going to see a doctor for Botox. And then it hit me! Like anything in life, there are no quick fixes and no excuses to ensure I…

One month progress with Flourishing Fit Mom’s

One month progress with Flourishing Fit Mom’s

I wasn’t going to share my before and progress (definitely not after) photo’s. I didn’t think there was too much change in my body over these past weeks. But I have been following an incredible postpartum program at home for exactly one month — and to my shock and huge excitement, these progress photo’s show changes. Want to know the secret? I’ve been doing the Flourishing Fit Moms Meg Faure Spring Challenge (12 weeks), and I’ve been LOVING it. In…

Should you post images of your children online?

Should you post images of your children online?

Question: Are your children safe, if you posting about them on Social Media? This is something that most parents are wondering and something that I really can’t get off my mind, having a career in the digital space, and way more importantly, being a mom in this digital era. So, why exactly are we so concerned now, fourteen years after Facebook was founded? HUMAN TRAFFICKING. Human trafficking is by no means a recent phenomenon in South Africa and has shown…

#HMLTOP5 – July Week 4

#HMLTOP5 – July Week 4

MUST HAVE: Dermalogica Calm Water Gel I’ve never had the feeling of serious skin tightness and dryness before. My husband, mom and sister have complained every winter — but I’ve rolled on with no moisturiser after a bath and been happy as Larry. I’ve always had a normal to oily skin. Until this past pregnancy changed everything! Some nights I would have to get out of bed and lather myself in hydration products as I felt itchy and uncomfortable from the…

What to expect in a c-section, with all 20 step details & photo’s

What to expect in a c-section, with all 20 step details & photo’s

The biggest question us girls face, after finding out we pregnant is: Are you doing natural or c-section? Truth be told, before our first baby we honestly didn’t know what to do, or what to expect. While natural births are mainly shown in movies (as can be seen as far more dramatic), I’m sure I had probably also seen one c-section done on Greys Anatomy or The Good Doctor. Note: It’s not really the same as in the movies. It’s…

#HMLTOP5 – July ’18, Week 1

#HMLTOP5 – July ’18, Week 1

I created this blog ages ago, but I just haven’t had the time to actually share much. It’s something I’ve wanted to do, but… LIFE. I’ve been so busy finishing off work, organising the house for the newborn’s arrival, and spending as much time with KJ as possible – before she isn’t an only child anymore. So, like true Ash form, I have decided to start blogging four days before expecting our new baby / #LastMinuteDotCom. Despite my madness, I…
