Is anyone experiencing hip discomfort postpartum? I have constant pain while walking on my right hip that was not present during or before pregnancy. I'm annoyed with it because it discourages me from exercising. Although exercise will probably hell in the long run. 3mo/EBF

I have a lot of joint pains that I didn't have before or during pregnancy. My daughter is thirteen months old now and I'm still getting bad pains in most of my joints.

I would highly recommend you see a chiropractor that specializes in maternity/postpartum. It has been a year and a half and I'm still working through strengthening my hips and back. The worst of it is behind me but I'm still working on getting to 100%.

It's been a year myself and my right hip still hurts when I get up suddenly. I have to limp the pain off. I recently posted about this, it seems common. Dr said it's from laying on my right side during pregnancy and from always carrying my daughter on my right side. Sucks. 😬

I've had some pain in the back and hip. I honestly think it's the sitting and positioning from breastfeeding..

Ellie M asks Any tips or tricks for babies flat head? My son is almost 5 months. We've been trying more tummy time but still seems flat though maybe getting a teeny bit rounder. When should we be concerned? He was born a month early and since birth favored his right side. His range of motion is getting better and he moves and sleeps on both sides now. But is that and tummy time enough to fix it? Will it fix itself on its own over time? Thanks in advance Mama’s!

MommyOf A asks I'm still having a hard decision to make whether or not to keep this baby. I'm very early and have a 3 year old son and am struggling to make this decision. The only thing stopping me from 100% confidently keeping this baby is finances. How much more is baby #2? Is going from 1-2 crazy expensive it doesn’t make a difference? My 3 year old is potty trained so no more diapers and obviously no bottles or formula or anything but I'm worried about bills/added expenses (clothes, groceries,)
