by RealMomofNJ on April 26, 2012 in Adult Food, Food & Recipes

Spring has receded once again. It’s freaking cold outside. I got the sudden urge for soup. Homemade chicken soup. So I threw some together, from scratch, in less than 30 minutes. And it was good. I thought this would be something other moms might want to know about.

Bottle Feeding in Public

by RealMomofNJ on April 22, 2012 in Breastfeeding

Whenever I go out with my son, I bring a bottle of pumped breast milk just in case I need to feed him on the fly. I have no problem nursing in public, but sometimes it’s easier to give him a bottle for 10 minutes than find a place to breastfeed him for 40 minutes. Say, whenever we’re standing…
