Pregnancy & Motherhood


It’s the toughest, most wonderful, challenging, inspiring, never-ending, beautiful, anxiety-laden, rewarding, disastrous, joyful, limit-testing, heartwarming, exhausting, giggle-producing, nerve-wracking, triumphant, unappreciated, amazing job you’ll ever have.

Here are a few posts to help you on your journey…

Post image for Life Through Photos | Lactation Cookie Party

Getting together with other nursing moms and making lactation cookies? Yes Please! Three of us got together one Sunday afternoon to have a Lactation Cookie Party. It was a great idea. We all had little nurslings (5 months or less) who were in attendance as well. This was a great way to talk about breastfeeding and mommy hood […]

July’s Employee Pick of the Month comes from Raquel.  She recently relocated to North Carolina after spending most of her life in Brooklyn.  Her daughter, Anaïs, just turned two this past April.  These two are kind and generous, and can usually be found in the front of the store or off practicing/teaching yoga. Raquel’s pick […]


Goodbye, Durham

Post image for Goodbye, Durham

We’re moving. It’s something that I have anticipated for such a long time that now that it’s finally happening, it’s completely surreal. My husband has been a graduate student in Chapel Hill for the past several years and we’ve always hoped that we could stay in this area, but known that we would most likely move […]

Here’s my installment for Ten on Ten June (Read more about the project by Rebekah Gough on her blog.) Summer is really and truly here, but the only real difference it’s making for me is that it’s hot and crowded! My kids don’t go to school, so I don’t really have that “summer break” vibe going […]

A few weekends ago, I had the opportunity to co-host a gender reveal baby shower for one of my good friends. The new mom recently moved away, but still visits Durham regularly so we decided to celebrate her pregnancy while she was in town and wanted to make it an extra-special gender reveal. When we […]

Gentle Weaning

Post image for Gentle Weaning

I’ve been meaning to write a post about the gentle weaning experience we had since my son stopped nursing over a year ago. For some reason I just kept putting it off. Breastfeeding was extremely important to me when I was pregnant. I borrowed a copy of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding and read it […]

Today I’m happy to share a guest post by Taryn Leary on Childbirth Advice. She teaches childbirth classes here at Sweetbottoms and has some fantastic tips for women (and their partners) preparing for labor. Knowing I have less than two months to go until my little bundle arrives prompted me to read her expert advice […]
