  • Breastfeeding in Public in Japan – An Honest Guide

    July 19, 2019 by

    So, let’s get into this. One of the most common questions I hear from parents who are new to Japan, or just new to parenting in Japan, is: Is it culturally acceptable to nurse in public in Japan? My answer, yes, but also no. It’s been my experience that breastfeeding is generally accepted and supported… Read more

  • Asahi at 18 Months

    May 23, 2019 by

    Asahi is now 18 months old! My last update was when he was 15 months and although some things are similar, he has also changed quite a bit, mostly in the realms of eating, sleeping, and speaking. I’ll start with his daily schedule: 6-7AM – Awake for the day. Cuddles with mama and playtime while I… Read more

  • Asahi at 8 and 9 Months

    February 28, 2019 by

    These couple of months were quite busy since we traveled to the US for the first time and Asahi met a lot of new people! While we were in Hawaii, Asahi also got salmonella which was horrible! He actually got it from drinking pool water before we left, but the symptoms began to show up… Read more

  • Asahi at 15 Months

    February 25, 2019 by

    I know I haven’t been the best at keeping up with Asahi’s updates…I actually have monthly updates written down in a journal that I plan on typing up to post to the blog as well, but I haven’t gotten to it yet. So much has changed since his first birthday so I wanted to do… Read more

    Finally, the long awaited night weaning post! I’ve been posting for a while on my instagram about our adventure into night weaning, but I thought I would write an overview here for anyone who is thinking about starting it as well.
