  • No judgment zone! While scouring IG looking for hair inspo at time I’ve noticed “strangers” in the comments telling people how their kids hair should look.  I’m guilty of having my opinions in the past but I kept them to myself.  I remember when I said I would never put beads in my kids hair, add color, blow it out or add hair.  Look at us now.  I think all those “rules” held us back from embracing our hair. While I won’t do anything to damage their hair I do encourage them to try different styles.  Peyton knows her hair is magical and she can do so many things. She gets to the point where she asks me if she could wear it natural for a while vs the other way around. I offered to give her a long ponytail for her cheer competition and she said no she was fine.  Ok den! I know My mood is better when my hair is laid. Love our girls can express themselves with their hair. What’s a hair rule that you have broken for you or your children?

  • Harper got her bedroom “office” update. I styled the book shelves (she has a ton in her closet) and added a dry erase board.  She loves to practice her letter on it. Just after one day, her markers were confiscated 😒. Not sure what my next project will be.  I’m avoiding my closet but I seriously need to tackle that asap. You can find more pics of her room on the blog.  Link in profile. #heytrinashome #kidsdecor
  • My first time doing braid with hair ever! I did box braids on Peyton’s hair using @latchednhooked pre-stretched hair.  I’m so happy with how they came out I’m tempted to doing some on myself 😳. I used the rubber and method. Ore pics on the blog. Would you try these?  If you try this please share with me! #boxbraids #girlbraidstyles #latchednhooked #protectivestyles #diybraids https://heytrina.com/easy-box-braids-you-can-do-yourself-video/
  • My favorite part of Peyton’s bedroom refresh is her art from @sheisthisdesigns! I need to order more for Harper’s room and my new office space. I dreamed of having a room like Peyton’s when I was growing up (sometimes now 😆). She’s also has a closet to die for.  I always tell her if she can’t keep it clean, I’m putting my stuff in there.  We’ll be cleaning that out soon! Paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  More room pics on the blog. Link in profile. #heytrinashome
  • Picture of my girls actually fighting against doing any school work.  This homeschooling thing is a full time job! Mr has locked himself in my old office leaving me to fend for myself. I’ve decided to give the girls and myself grace (and 🍷). Not that I’m letting them win, after hours of going back and fourth I have to know when to call it a day.  One night I was up with Peyton till almost 10 helping her finish her work and I knew this can’t be life.  So we’re working about 2-3 hrs a day on school plus reading.  That’s all i got.  Just praying  she passes 4th grade 😩. How’s it going for you guys? #graceandmercy shirts fine @pintsizefaith
  • Another project under my quarantine belt! Peyton’s pre-tween bedroom refresh is done! It looks so good and matches the vibe of the rest of the house. Peyton wanted to kick the bright pinks to the curb. Now Harper wants her room update 😒. Her only update will be a good cleaning 😩. Spent less than $100. Swipe to see the before that was already cute.

  • Spring is here but no spring break 😓. Just over here washing my hands, trying to stay positive and plotting where I’m going when this is all over. Homeschool was a fail this week but I did finish my new Supermomculture.com site, set up my new workspace and deep cleaned my kitchen.  Currently happy hour at the crib. Can’t wait to rock this @suakokobetty outfit again.
  • My 2nd quarantine project is complete! So y’all remember that cute office I had.... well Mr stole it a few years ago even though it has pink accents 😒. My pictures are still on the wall an everything.  Since then, my main office has been the kitchen counter with my laptop. How am I supposed to run a multi-thousand dollar business from the counter? Being a blogger is one thing but having a retail business is another beast. I have a computer in my guest room where I package orders but it was on a small writers desk with no room for papers or anything.  It was getting too hectic. So I switched the room around to make more space to fulfill orders and work. I shopped my basement to put it together. I super excited to have a new space where I can leave my papers and planners. My desk is the Linnmon desk from Ikea. I already had 2 of these tables that are on the other side of the printer for @supermomculture orders. PS: while I’m being productive my kids aren’t 🤷🏾‍♀️ #heytrinashome

National Breastfeeding Month + Breastfeeding Behaviors Presented by Lansinoh

August 4, 2015

I was so nervous about breastfeeding before I had Peyton.  I was concerned that I wouldn’t get any milk, she wouldn’t take the breast and it would hurt.  I had a few friends that weren’t able to breastfeed because they didn’t get enough milk or none at all.  Everyones struggle is different.  I was blessed to have an oversupply of milk come in at the hospital.  Because my oversupply supply, I ended up exclusively pump to keep up.  I’m preparing for the same scenario this time around using my new Lansinoh® SignaturePro™ double pump.

Everyones breastfeeding experience and views on breast feeding are different.  To celebrate National Breastfeeding Month, Lansinoh released their 2015 infographics summarizing their survey of over 13,000 women across the globe on their breastfeeding views and experience.  Check out the info to measure where you stand on breastfeeding.

US_Survey_Infographic_2015

  • Ninety-six percent of women worldwide agree that breastfeeding is the best way to feed their children but many still struggle to breastfeed for what they believe to be the ideal amount of time
  • Sixty-seven percent of moms and moms-to-be in the United States believe that breastfeeding in public is perfectly natural
  • Twenty-five percent of women in the United States say they have been openly criticized or experienced prejudice while breastfeeding in public

Check out how the US behaviors compare to other breastfeeding moms around the world.

I was pretty surprised at these results and how my thoughts differ from others.  I for one am terrified to breastfeed in public.  I know it’s cool and everything, but I will avoid it at all costs, even with a cover.  I also plan to breastfeed for 6-12 months.  I can tell you I will NOT be breastfeeding after 12 months.  Again, thats my preference.  It’s ok for all moms to have their own breastfeeding opinions.  If you breastfeed your child to 18 years old, good for you.  This is just information to increase awareness.

I would love to here your views and experience on breastfeeding.  Do they differ from the results of this survey?  Please remember, this is a judgment free zone : ).

    I think it’s great that women choose and are able to breastfeed. For me, my milk never came in after struggling for a month we went with formula. I would have loved to breastfeed but it just didn’t work out. I would get so jealous when I saw a woman breastfeeding but I came to terms with it and glad my kids are healthy and strong! I don’t mind seeing women breastfeeding I think it’s a natural thing. Most women I’ve seen always have a cover and there have been a handful of boobs at the waiting room at the Dr and saw one recently at the airport. Hey, do what comes natural I say.

    I breastfed both of my kids for over two years. When I first decided to try breastfeeding I wasn’t sure if I would make it a few months. But once I got past the first few weeks it became easier and I breastfed my oldest a lot longer than I ever imagined. With my second the goal was two years. I’m all for extended nursing , but each mom should do what’s best for her and her child.

    With my daughter I had extremely low supply. She was supplemented from the start and went full formula at 6 weeks because I ended up hospitalized. I was devastated but she was more than fine. LOL.
    This time around my supply is up. It took a while and I continue to use all the tricks I can to keep it that way. My son is exclusively breastfed to the point that he won’t take Breastmilk from a bottle or even take a paci. It’s work girl but I’m hoping to last the year.
    I am not here for Publix breastfeeding. I do it when I have to and I’m covered but still it’s not a joy at all.

    I hope you have a great supply this time around! Good luck.
