When breastfeeding hurts…

Breastfeeding is a natural process that doesn't come naturally for all. If anything, it's a learning curve for both you and baby - at least in my case it was.

It’s getting hot in here!

Nairobi weather has become unbearable lately! The heat is, in my opinion, the worst we've ever experienced. Nairobians call it the 'equinox'. It's so bad that I'd rather stay indoors than go out. If I have to be out, I'd rather be swimming than baking in the dry heat. Here are a few tips for …
