eco_ash Catching up with #balancebasics day 8 was #prasaritapaddotanasana and I had a little help from #babysage and #Lila in the background @laurasykora @kinoyoga @beachyogagirl @athleta 4d
  •   namastemegs 😀 4d
  •   eagilliard Cats. Babies. Yoga. Oh my! 4d
  •   eco_ash @eagilliard they all want to be involved 4d
  •   mrsmelturner @eco_ash I'm due to have my first child in under two weeks, I was just wondering how long you waited to start practicing again after birth? I practice ashtanga now but have been doing very minimal because of obvious restrictions. X 4d
  •   eco_ash @mrsmelturner every situation is different but I began around 3-4 weeks. You really have to follow what your midwife/dr says though and how your body feels! The abdomen takes time to heal and it's different for everyone. You will know it though the first time you try and stretch into a backbend for the first time 4d
  •   mrsmelturner Thank you @eco_ash it's always good to hear other peoples opinions and experiences on the subject, I will definitely be easing myself back into the full primary series I think (may leave the back bends for a while then) ;-) 4d
  •   eco_ash @mrsmelturner I practiced almost right up to when I delivered and it definitely helped postpartum healing! Congrats and have a safe and peaceful delivery 3d
  •   mrsmelturner Thank you x 2d

  •   happyhealthyhippie @eco_ash you're such a pro at babywearing. Me and the hubby have got to learn to be confident with it. I'm fine with our ergobaby carrier but he's not... Yet! I can't wait to get my sakura bloom though. I think I'll be more comfortable with that. Especially with the heat here in LA. Oh and yes! I'll join the challenge so go for it 6d
  •   namastemegs Awesome! 6d
  •   eco_ash @happyhealthyhippie you will get there!! Once baby has head control, it gets easier! All baby carriers have some degree of difficulty...practice practice!! Yay! Let's start a babywearing yoga movement!! 6d
  •   nrdealmeida I dreamt I was at your baby shower (haha wrong timing!!) and I think there were some other hyg girls there... It was this big party, lots of people in this biiig old wooden vintage/rustic house :)) random hehe 6d
  •   eco_ash @nrdealmeida too funny!! Sounds fun though 6d
  •   wellness4all Love it !!!! 6d

eco_ash Day 6 of #balancebasics is #utkatasana @laurasykora @kinoyoga @beachyogagirl @athleta #babywearing style! I always lift my toes in #fierce pose, it just feels comfortable! 1w
  •   eco_ash @yogikwaby yes they do! Plus this is great for hip carries down the road. So it's a justifiable purchase in my eyes 1w
  •   let_it_be_easy Well then you convinced me 1w
  •   scrummytritious So beautiful xxx 1w
  •   happyhealthyhippie @yogikwaby @eco_ash I just got one, just waiting for it to get here!! I'm excited!!! Do you know how young or how heavy newborns have to be for them to be safe in a @lovesakurabloom. Is it 8+ lbs or something? 1w
  •   eco_ash @happyhealthyhippie I would've felt safe putting her in it right away and she was only 6 lbs then! I had a certified babywearing teacher show me how though! I love ours!! #sakurabloomyoga 1w
  •   happyhealthyhippie @eco_ash wow! Ok.. I'll start youtube-ing it now and look for a babywearing teacher here so I can feel as confident. Thank you! 1w
  •   eco_ash @happyhealthyhippie the manager at our natural parenting store here is who is certified! If you have any stores like that I would ask! Or a local birth center might know 1w
  •   langjo1117 Aw love! 1w

eco_ash This baby may look calm but for three hours prior to this photo, she was crying on and off with almost nothing to soothe her. This has been going on for weeks. I will think I've found something to help but then the next night the inconsolable crying will begin again. I don't want to believe it's colic but I think if we can't figure it out with the chiropractor, then I have to accept the fact I have a colicky baby. I live in fear of going places with her because as this usually happens at night in our home, it can strike anywhere. I've gotten loads of advice about it and don't need anymore. Most days I just need a hug. I'm struggling with the fact that I may have to go back to work with this still going on and I don't know how I will survive. I feel pressure to get my life back but my days revolve around this precious girl and trying to make her comfortable. How can I bend without breaking? 2w
  •   owlctopus Wow. I'd just like to say Thank you! I fallowed what you said, as soon ad she started getting fussy I took her into her room, turned out the lights, put on her night light and started rocking her and after a while she fell asleep and only woke to eat and would fall right back to sleep. No crying at all last night!! :D 3d
  •   owlctopus We've been cosleeping since day one so now I just have to get her used to sleeping alone in her bassinet, although it was really nice laying in bed with her all night, I was actually able to catch up on sleep. 3d
  •   eco_ash @owlctopus awesome!! I still co sleep at night but during the day she naps in her crib with a video monitor so I can still see her I'm not ready to give up sleeping with her at night either! They need 18-20 hours right now so it's no wonder they turn into monsters when they don't get it!! 3d
  •   owlctopus The only was I can get her to fall asleep in by rocking her, then the tricky part is laying her down without waking her. Lol one step at a time though. :) what do you use to generate white noise? 2d
  •   eco_ash @owlctopus do you swaddle? My daughter tries to fight it at first but then she loves it once it's done. I have a sound machine! After we have our 20-30 min after nursing, she starts getting heavy eyes and that's when I swaddle and turn the noise on. She's actually starting to recognize that the noise and swaddle mean sleep 2d
  •   owlctopus She always fights me when I try to swaddle her but I also only ever tried when she was upset, and i can never seem to make it so she doesnt tear out of it. She loved it the first few weeks after she was born so I am noe going to try again before she gets to the point where she's fussy and flailing around. I have noticed the reason she wakes up in her crib is because she scares herself awake when she realizes she isn't securely being held if that makes sense so swaddling would make perfect sense. 2d
  •   owlctopus What brand sound machine do you have? I'm definitely going to get one because I can tell it helps her. 2d
  •   eco_ash @owlctopus exactly the reason to swaddle when she isn't with you! The sound machine brand is My Baby. It's simple and small and it has the option to run on batteries so you can travel with it easily 2d

eco_ash Debated whether or not to share this intimate moment but decided to because I think it's important to spread the knowledge that birth without fear/pain is possible! Even though my labor was quick and hard for a first timer, I can honestly say I was not in pain. Was it the hardest thing I've ever done? Yes! Would I do it again the same way, drug free? YES! This is the moment that makes all the hard work, worth it! #birthwithoutfear #hypnobirth #empoweredbirthproject #waterbirth #midwivesarethebest 4w
