Meal Tips for New Moms

I’ve spoken to quite a few overwhelmed mamas who have newborns at home lately.

But honestly- I get so sick off of it- it just isn’t worth it anymore. People ask all the time why I don’t take a “pill” so I can eat it. Do you know how “unnatural” that is. There’s a problem with my body breaking down lactose naturally- and so putting a foreign object into my body to do it for me- goes against all the basic principles of how our body works. So …
