on breastfeeding (in public)

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

This is not a polemic post on breastfeeding (so much fuss has been raised after Elle's Magazine published on its cover a model feeding her 4 months old baby).
 
But I'd like to share my (current) experience. I do breastfeed. Seven to eight times a day. This mean such moments are driving my daily life.
 
I felt so much nervous, shy and maybe bigot at the idea of breastfeed my child in public.
But I was at the point that if I wanted to go out with friends, take a walk in the city centre or enjoy a meal out, I had to change attitude.
 
The first few times I did it when with friends and their babies. It's when I've realised there's nothing to be scared or ashamed about (tough some men eyes do make me feel uncomfortable...). This is the most natural thing in the world.
 
One of the positive side of breastfeeding is exactly that you can do it anytime, anywhere. No need to microwaves, or go to bar to warm milk or carry bottles around!
 
My LittleAngel is just 5 months old and he is not interested in food at all! This mean I still have some time ahead to keep on breastfeeding!
 

Here below: two pictures of me breastfeeding in public [one at a byke race, one at the restaurant on Mother's day] and Elle's cover.







Baby wearing

Thursday, 21 May 2015

 

 
Me and my child, a true love story.
He was born at seven months and needs extra cuddles from his mama.
To enjoy each other company and stay more close, the marsupio was totally necessary for both of us.
 
Not too mention how useful it is in those circumstances were handsfree are required.
This marsupio is from Boba: organic cotton, light, very comfortable and easy to wear.
I would recommend it to those like me are looking for a practical way to carry around your baby.
The marsupio's ergonomic design makes the baby feeling nicely wrapped and myself not struggling for his weight.
 
Let's take a walk together!

I was this close to shut down this blog but it was like put aside a part of me....
This blog may not be popular or cool. No magazines talk about it.
But it's my little space for writing, express myself and have fun!

After a few challenging months as a new mum, I am ready to go back to blogging :)

Topics may be different due to new interests and life, but I hope you'll enjoy it anyway.

See you soon!

What can I say?
Being a Mum is tirying, demanding and sometimes stressful.
But it also the most happy, sweet and rewarding job in the world!

My heart is full of love and joy these days...I couldn't be more happy...

on hold...

I am still taking a break from blogging as I want to focus 100% on my newborn baby boy :-)
 
He is amazing and I love him to the moon and back...

Intimates

Saturday, 8 November 2014


I would never guess how certain things would change during pregnancy….
Like the type of underwear I am wearing, for example.
It’s no more "feeling sexy like a Victoria Secret model" kinda of girl… but more....old fashioned lady by being comfortable, with no strings, soft material that would accommodate your growing curves.
It’s not that I wearing no more lace or Bridget Jones style underwear.... but certain pieces, like the one in the pic are put on the lower drawer of my closet.
For now.




a warm Autumn day

 26 weeks






Last weekend it was incredibly hot here in northern Italy. We spent Sunday afternoon in Arona, by Lake Maggiore.
We had coffee in the amazing restaurant were we got married… it was so romantic…. Everytime I’ll go there, a little tear of emotions show up. It was the best day of my life and I could not help having overwhelming feelings of love, joy, fun, sweetness and magic!

I am 26 weeks and the size of my belly is still small (not complaining at all!). I am doing great and couldn't be happier!


Layers!

Tuesday, 28 October 2014



Layer up in the transiction season.
It’s the only thing that works!
You can adjust to different temperatures,
enjoy wearing more the one piece of (fashionable) clothes
and have more fun in dressing up!

Well, this is what works for me…..and for you?
Do you have any other tip for Autumn temperatures?
