Hii, I am Emma, founder of Manic Pixie Dream Mama. I am a Dentist who has now completely turned into a full time blogger and content writer.
I used to be a fussy, messy and panicking mom during the start of my motherhood. Though I changed a lot (for good), I still get worried sometimes when anything comes up with my kid. Be it his health, learning, growing, playing, or anything.
As I have a nuclear family, there was no support during my postpartum period. My husband helped the most he could. However, we read books, searched for kid’s care videos, and somehow managed that time. Obviously, we also made some mistakes, but eventually learned from them too.
So we as mothers, do get new challenges or difficulties, especially during the start or with the firstborn. Let me share with you one of my personal experiences.
I have dry skin and for the same reason, I had eczema all over my nipples during my delivery. Can you imagine the scenario?
I needed to feed my baby…but how? With my eczemic breast? What if he also get infected? Moreover, the pain was unbearable.
My gyne guided me through this thing. She introduced me to breast milk pumps.
Although she assured me that eczema won’t get transferred through breast milk, to reduce my pain, she recommended breast pumps. And believe me… they helped me a lot.
I explored breastfeeding from google as well. I learned a lot regarding breastfeeding techniques, managing breastfeeding schedules, and even increasing my milk supply. I also guided my friends through their challenges and they didn’t get to go through all that I had gone through.
This encouraged me to start a blog, where my knowledge could help more mothers. Through my articles, I often keep on sharing personal stories, from my friend’s experiences or from my own life. I am sure you will find a solution to your any query after joining with us. I would be very grateful if you would share with us your parenting experiences. It will help us build up a mutual learning platform.
I have linked up with experienced nutritionists, health experts, and mother-child care authorities, after founding Manic Pixie Dream Mama.
They have been a tremendous support to us and will always guide us in our work in the future also.
