1 Natural Way to Be Stress Free After Birth

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of 1 Natural Way, a TRICARE breast pump All opinions are entirely my own.

In 2005 I became a military spouse. I had no idea what that entitled, at all.  Almost exactly one year later to the day, I joined my husband in Vicenza Italy. It was a long 36-hour adventure with a (potty training) four-year-old. I had never been outside of the US, let alone on an airplane. I thought I was ready for an adventure of a lifetime. Boy, I sure didn’t know what kind of an adventure I was about to have. 

About a month after arriving, I found out why my Italian landlord said to not drink the water. Because we were expecting! Then we had more news, deployment. Alright so I am going to give birth, in a foreign country, and my husband will leave for 15 months. Yes, fifteen! Let that sink in while I have a glass of wine to celebrate the survival of the fittest. 

I will say, It was the best thing to happen to us. It not only helped us grow up quicker, but it strengthened our bond and showed me I was stronger and more independent that I have ever known. I decided to just travel and see what I could. I figured out how to ride a train with a stroller and a baby carrier. I quickly realized whoever invented those backpack leashes was to be the next god I gave thanks to. In fact, my favorite picture that sums up that entire time with my daughters was in Venice, backpack, baby carrier, and leash. 

We didn’t stop there! He deployed again when we were stationed in Germany. And again, the girls and I adventured out. This time we didn’t need any gear besides a backpack and camera. We grabbed a Bavaria castle pass and put ten thousand miles on our car in nine months. We have seen Poland, Austria, Germany, Italy and so many more! What a whirlwind our lives have been!

I wouldn’t have it any other way. When it comes to creating that bond with your children, it absolutely starts at birth. It can be super hard away from family and with young children or babies. Try to go out, meet neighbors, get a hobby, or just explore. We would even window shop on those tight paycheck months. It still gave us something to do and talk about. It helps keep the sanity and wear out the kids. 

Speaking of bonding, whether you bottle or breastfeed, that special time is always wonderful. 1 Natural Way is an in-network Tricare breast pump provider for all Tricare plans.
