Is drinking a glass of wine with dinner going to be harmful to my nursing baby? Is drinking safe at all? What should I do if I got drunk? These are the common questions nursing mothers ask: The effect of drinking alcohol on their breastmilk.
Breastfeeding mothers receive conflicting advice about whether alcohol consumption can have an effect on their baby, which often leaves mothers feeling like they have more questions than answers. So, what information should a mother who is considering drinking while breastfeeding know?
The occasional drink is unlikely to harm you or your baby. However, it's safest not to have more than one or two units of alcohol, once or twice a week, if you are breastfeeding.
Sexual abuse of a child occurs when someone touches the private parts of a child’s body without a health or hygiene reason. It can include kissing or having oral, anal or vaginal sex. Sexual abuse can happen to both girls and boys.
Just like in the video shown below. the abuser can be a stranger or someone they know. Most times, it is someone the child knows – like a relative, neighbor or family friend.
Sexual abuse also does not necessarily involve bodily contact. Showing private parts or ‘flashing’ to children, forcing children to view pornographic images and exploiting children for prostitution or pornography are all considered serious criminal forms of sexual abuse.
Nothing can be compared to the feeling of having your baby sleeping in your arms. The bonding of that particular moment lingers that mums can get so addicted to it, they cannot seem to let go. But as much as mothers want to carry their baby all-day long, because a mum is also a wife, a mum to her other kids, an employee (or a boss), and does numerous tasks at home, the bliss of carrying her baby can be easily ignored. But in these modern times, a mum can still be busy without giving up her delight in carrying her baby.
This is why babywearing is becoming so popular, as you will see a lot of mothers wearing their baby almost everywhere- may it be in the mall, in the church, at the park or even

"Is It safe to have a hair rebonding treatment while breastfeeding?" This is one of the most common questions mothers ask not only in our community, but almost in all forums. The problem is when we would get opposing ideas about it. Some would say, it is okay, while there are some mums who would say, it's better not to have that treatment than to be sorry.
As a mum who just gave birth, and a breastfeeding one at that, although we would want to be back to our old, very chic-looking self again, there are things we would like to consider first before
“Pigs trotters in vinegar” did not sound divine to me. It smelled even less divine boiling away in the kitchen and making the house smell sour... but the taste was amazing!
