August is Breastfeeding Awareness Month

Instagram

  • Today these two gave a unexpected surprise. CharlieB had a meltdown bc I had that headwrap on,  I thought she just wanted it, but later realized she wanted me to put it on her, the way mommy wears it. Of course Lexi wasn't going to be left out. .
.
To my amazement, both of them left it on and worn it most of their 45 minute long music class. Clearly, they are watching my every move, and I'm trying my best to be the best role model for them. Bc if I expect them to move mountains, then I better be able to show them how. .
Self love is important,  and for the longest I didn't have much,  I'm glad as their mother I've been able to overcome so much and learn to love myself and accept me for me... today they reminded me that I'm doing just that. .
So just when you are second guessing how motherhood is going, they will remind you that you are doing just fine,  so be easy on yourself, "You are enough"

  • 📣📣NEW BLOG🖥 POST📣📣
.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
August 1-7 was National Breastfeeding week and August is Breastfeeding Month, so I just knew I had to write my story.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☕️😔This post wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to write. After nursing for almost 3 years I thought this would be a simple post, but I didn't realize the subject matter was so loaded... so I am doing a mini-series for the topic. This is the 1st part:
.
📝My Journey to Extended Breastfeeding - Part 1 "Supplementing"
.
☕️I didn't want the goal of the post to get shuffled, so I will be talking about key issues about breastfeeding in following posts over the next few weeks.
.
(Fun fact,  this picture by 📸 @candacehowe_ was NOT staged, in the middle of the shoot she demanded to be fed) .
☕️If you have any questions or want me to expand on anything leave comments here, on the post or in a DM
.
😘Brooklyn Cocoa Mommy, 2 time nurser, extended breastfeeder, tandem nurser, supplementing mother who had no intentions on this, but this is where the journey lead us.

  • ☕Welcome Cocoa Sippers 💋& Happy HumpDay. 
I want to take this moment to introduce/reintroduce myself.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☕️ About me:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Married for 3 years, I have a 2.5 yr. old & 15 month old. We live in Brooklyn, NY (I REP Brooklyn Hard, my 1st born is named after the city, despite my southern roots 🤣) I am a Professor/Librarian📚 and work for 2 academic institutions. I take the dissemination of information very seriously, to the point I decided to become a blogger because I witnessed some very influential influencers/bloggers express misleading information. .
☕️I am a BREASTFEEDING mom, who believes that FED is BEST, and want to work towards eliminating MOM SHAMING POINT BLANK. I am a tandem breastfeeder and an extended breastfeeder and to date have been breastfeeding for over 2.5 years consecutively, to two children. I want to raise awareness about the options parents have, and help them make the best decision for them, instead of feeling that they are obligated to make certain parenting decisions. .
⚠️⚠️I avoid the vaccination debate at all cost (because I feel a large percentage of anti-vaxxers are misinformed. I vaccinate my kids, because I was vaccinated, understand the benefits of herd immunity, and research shows vaccines work and are effective in eradicating deadly childhood diseases. SO I do post articles about vaccinations, but I will NOT debate about it.⚠️⚠️
.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☕️I’m no police and I would never be an Internet bully, but I feel when you are influencing someone who is likely to make a decision that can be life altering, they should have access to ALL the information. I want to help others become better informed and learn how to filter “fake news”, “Information w/ an Agenda” vs “Factual Information”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Dare I say it!!!??? ☕
☕
There's a New Blog Post up!!!!
📢📢A New Blog Post after a little hiatus!!!
☕🙈So I thought about quitting this blog 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️ I'm getting transparent on what happened... "To Blog or Not to Blog"

Brooklyncocoa.mom 
In the post I thank a few blogger friends. 
@dee.diary @honestlymommy @chiniluv @herlifesparkles and @mrsbrittanyhennessy for her book.
  • I've never been big on lip color and nail color (but I love eye color and wearing bright colors)  so typically when I 'clean up' my go to lip color is my natural lip color or a nude. But every so often I like to get funky and make a color like this one. So here's a #throwback for #nationallipstickday 💄💋to my bridal shower look circa 2015 when we did a mixed combo lip look. 
I love a vibrant lip when I choose color and purple is my favorite color.
  • Caption this!!! Give me your best caption. 🚦Go!!! .
.
@dee.diary clearly I love color too. 🤣
.
. 🤦🏾‍♀️This child has so much personality and sass, I think the colors match her... I'm definitely on a "ride" with her. .

If you let him tell it he will definitely let you know "The Lion King" is his autobiography and he is Simba 🤦🏾‍♀️🙈🤣 (but of course that would make me Nayla then 🤣🤣🤣and since I'm both a Leo and his wife that makes perfect sense) so I go along with it.
🖤🖤🖤
💗💗💗
