Ok, it's summer and I'm so lucky to be on an amazing vacation. At the risk of offending those of you home in your breastmilk-soaked pjs with a cranky newborn, I'll self-indulgently share a bit. We've visited the silky white sanded, turquoise blue watered Rosemary Beach, Florida, then drove off to brave the over-heated masses while my kiddos embraced their inner wizards in Orlando (go Gryffindor!) and finally my sweet husband and I are off to a few kid-free days in Palm Beach (thanks grandma and hubs company). I'm doing a pretty good job of relaxing and taking a break from "work", although I admit, I always respond to clients who have questions while I'm away. I'd never want to leave mommas hanging! I did though, just receive word that an interview I did a few weeks back just went live and I wanted to proudly share it here because I think the info may help all different kinds of moms in various stages of new and seasoned mommyhood, especially those who are hating me right now for talking about my vacation while you sit wondering if you will ever get to leave your house again.

I was approached by Amanda and Lindsay, super-cool hilarious mommas and the brilliant founders of basic mommy to share some insight about parenting, breastfeeding and weaning. I'm so happy to share their site with you because, honestly, they just get it. I mean, read this description: "basic mommy is a place where we share tips, trouble-shooting, product love, and personal humiliations to help other moms feel less alone. We've been where you are: overjoyed, overwhelmed, and utterly confused. We try to provide insight on the mini-panics that begin with pregnancy (and multiply with childbirth, and multiply again with child-rearing) in the hope that we can infuse some calm into your upturned life by providing knowledge." Am I right?!?!

Here's my interview. Thanks Amanda and Lindsay for your interest in my perspective and thank you for all you are doing for moms and babes.

Yes, that is a red solo cup "hidden" in my left hand. In my right, the precious impetus for me becoming a lactation consultant. #rosemarybeach #lucky #thisdoesntsuck
