I LOVE baby-wearing. I get at least 1 comment every single day when I wear my baby especially after having 3 kids. Whether people are in awe, or amazed that I can wear my baby, or them feeling so sorry for me 😂. It is such a beautiful thing honestly. It took me years to get the hang of a ring sling but when I did there was no turning back. I love my structured carriers too but there’s something about the ring sling. I wore both my babies in the hospital room during recovery since I had c-sections for all! Did/Do you wear your baby?.
.
.For now though I wanted share on this special Day of Blessing! This gorgeous @wildbird sling is extra special to me and was the reason I was apart of the Juniper launch but I wanted to gift it to a special mama in the United States! All you got to do is:
🌟 Tag a bunch friends (each counts as an entry)
🌟 Like this photo & follow @wildbird & @throughmamaseyesblog! 🌟 For an extra 3 entries share this to your stories/feed!

.🎁 Winner will be announced on Monday night 😁😁😁😁

Eloras favourite thing to go on at the park 😂🙊 the whole time she was on it ( which was the majority of the time we spent at the park) she repeatedly shouted ‘ see saw see saw ‘ and ‘quack quack’ 😭😂🤦🏼‍♀️ ... she couldn’t get over the thing! She even cried when it was time to leave! ... I’m hoping for another beautiful sunny day tomorrow so we can get out and enjoy some more fresh air 🍃💓🤗 #Park #parklife #childhood #childhoodmemories #letthembelittle #childhoodunplugged #childhood #memories #makingmemories #babyeloraelise #whatelorawears #throughmamaseyes #babyfashionista #handmade #ducky #quack #hurryupspring

I was watching @nbcthisisus the other day. Rebecca says to her daughter “I want to stay out of your way” because they had a difficult relationship. To which Kate replied, “Mom I know our stuff can be complicated sometimes. All that I have ever wanted was to be like you, be a singer like you, be a mom like you, I want to have a marriage like you, Mom YOU ARE MY WAY”. I am a sucker for emotional dramas so that hit me hard & had me bawling 😭 . It made me think of my kids and how much they look up to us & how despite us constantly butting heads & the power struggles, deep down inside somehow they will always look up to us. When we beat ourselves up & go through mom guilt they still love us, When we feel like we failed, they will still love us & want to be like us. No matter what. We are their dreams, their everything. Because of this, I have been contemplating a mini social break for a while. Time to focus on my family & get some mental space from social media especially Instagram. I have never actually done this before. To be honest I don’t know how long I will last 🙈 But I desperately need it, it’s been a crazy year, my son is off school after today, and I really think some reconnecting is needed. Self-Care right?!.
.
💜 Till then I hope you have an amazing rest of the year. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your support through my journey, my highs & my lows and I can’t wait for 2019!!!!.

<Second Trimester 2015 Baby No.2>
.
🤰🏽I decided to put these disclaimers because every time I put a pregnancy related photo/video I get a “congratulations” 😂. This was one of the best parts of my second pregnancy, I was in London for a 2015 family reunion to see @imanblogs and her baby (that’s the last time our family was together). I travelled on my own 5 months Preggo with my 18 month old. Yes I am crazy but I would do anything for my family! I felt amazing except for the occasional back pain and falling sick with the famous Noro Virus. Apart from physical ailments I have always had a pretty smooth second trimester. Join @this_ruh & I tonight on #DoulaDiaries on my profile Live on Instagram at 9 PM EST/6 PM PST as we talk about #secondtrimester & everything that comes with it. We are taking questions so do leave them 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 What was your favorite part of your second trimester? What was your least favorite pregnancy symptom during that time?

So over the last week I made a decision that involved my daughter & her school which I will share with you on Friday. The result of that was needing a special gift for her teacher which we planned to give right before school closes Mid December for the holidays. #ad We picked up a Vanilla MasterCard Gift Card Pack which includes 3 GiftCards (super budget friendly), themed for the holidays which was perfect for the teacher & her assistants.
.
🎁 Even though I don’t celebrate the holidays (we do love all the beautiful lights though!), there is always a teacher/mentor/colleague/friend who probably does! So if you have a special someone who celebrates and you would like to gift them something go check out these @vanillagiftcards at the Walmart Holiday Kiosk. There are several to pick from and it gives them the freedom to buy what they actually NEED with these! Can you tell I love GiftCards? They are the best!.
.
💝 Also for every Card Purchase you make you have a chance to win 1 of over 100 prizes! The Grand prize is a $10K shopping spree at Macy’s (YUP!). The Grand prize drawing is on 12/24/18. Isn’t that a WIN WIN?!.

<The Ultrasound> After 2 weeks of being unwell, motherhood funk etc @this_ruh & I will be back with #douladiaries this Thursday! We will be diving into the Second Trimester and everything that comes with it.
.
🤰🏽 The biggest highlight of my 2nd trimester was my ultrasound (this ultrasound video was from April 2013) & seeing my bump pop out at 16 weeks (literally overnight). I remember that day, I was at a conference & it was one of the first times I got out and people started noticing my bump. It was so exciting. One of the other highlights was finding out 2 of my very close friends (And 2 acquantainces) were all due the same day or day before/after me! Have you ever had that happen? It happened to me with my 2nd pregnancy as well!.
.
🤰🏽 Also the second trimester is normally (for most women) when we feel our best, have more energy and get over the morning sickness. When did you start to feel normal during your pregnancies?.
.
.Can’t wait to talk Second Trimester with you guys this Thursday at 9 PM EST (6PM PST). Please comment below with any questions you need help with! .

Lately I feel like my toddler has me on the side lines. He wants to do everything himself and when I ask him for a cuddle he turns and says "erm, no". I'm proud he at least thinks about it and makes decisions I guess. But seriously my baby is growing up and already doesn't need me as much as he did last week. I know I'm worrying for no reason and in time he will need me again. There is always next week! . . . . . #growinguptoofast #mamasboy #toddleradventures #slowdownyoucrazychild #mumofboys #fatherandson #our everyday moments #littlesnippetsofus #ourdailystory #motherhoodunplugged #thefunnythingskidsdo #autumndays #thelittlechapters #throughmamaseyes #mondaymood

Sunday’s are the most difficult day of the week for me. Managing the kids, catching up with laundry, cleaning, sometimes meal-prepping and everything that didn’t get done on the weekend and trying to squeeze in me time. Right now, I’m wishing I was back at the mall finishing up my shopping, I got an hour alone yesterday to find a few things we needed in store and it was bliss! I still have a few things on my list I really needed that I need to check off before tomorrow’s Cyber Sale is over! Did you get everything you wanted this sale? I tried to focus on things we REALLY needed as opposed to just browsing for deals. I think I did well 🤷🏽‍♀️ How did you do?

.How gorgeous is this @ergobaby 180 Reversible Stroller? I love it except I can’t seem to keep me toddler strapped in! He was in this photo for 2 mins before he jumped out 🤣

Tis the season 🤧 As a parent through the years, we just know when our kids will get sick. Do you agree? For example, with my kids, every single time they go out without bundling up & it's colder than normal especially when they aren’t used to that weather, they end up waking up the next morning with a cough or a runny nose. It's almost guaranteed 80-90% of the time. And it just happened a few days ago, my daughter woke up under the weather the morning after she went out to the park on a cold evening. I don't know why but it is what it is. And of course this morning my sons have woken up the same, it’s a chain reaction. I am so glad I had @hylandshealth Cold n Mucus Day & Night Value Pack. I have been using this since the last flu season & I love how it works for my kids. My daughter actually had to just remind me last night to give her

At last, we completed the @craft.set.go 's theme on bubble art. OMG, we had so much fun in spite of all the mess 😁. Hafsa loved to blow the bubbles while the little one enjoyed bursting those🙈 and all these happened in our living room😝
.
.
This idea was inspired by @apieceofrainbow through Pinterest. It took two weeks to finish our masterpiece. Initially, started with bubble fun, then tried out in paper and finally to a cardstock. Let it dry completely and cut in shapes. Leaf cutouts are made by Hafsa without much help from me. Finally assembled everything on a cardstock with a double sided tape to give a 3d look. Hope you people find it that way too😁🙈

I started this blog in November 2016. I really had no idea what I was doing. All I really wanted to do was bring beneficial information to mama’s, help them feel like they were not alone & showcase products I loved. I fell pregnant with my third shortly after I started & I had to slow down most of 2017 & 2018. How did 2 years fly by though? I can remember writing my first blog post like it was yesterday. It was on my first @fawndesign bag & it was the top result on google for almost 18 months #alhamdullilah. I bought their bag & reviewed it. It’s not the best structured post in the blogging world but it was special to me. Now less than 2 years later, @FawnDesign approached me to collaborate with them. I can’t tell you how amazing it felt to see one of my dreams/goals with this blog come true & that’s INCLUSIVENESS as a Muslim & A Hijabi 💕🙏🏼♥️!.
.
👩🏽‍💻 I have learnt so much from this experience, from the technical side of blogging, to how much work it actually takes to run a blog (it really is a full time job & a lot of times with no income until you grow). So people wonder why do you do it if you are not earning a full time income? Why not get a job even if its from home. I have tried that, and honestly, nothing beats this. Nothing beats the pure fulfillment I get from helping 1 person with a blog post I wrote. Nothing beats getting a message from someone saying they were so glad they were not the only one feeling that way. I am still finding my way through all of this and figuring it out while I manage life with my 3 kids, but I hope you will continue to follow me along the way.
.
. I am excited for you guys to see more on this collaboration soon, but for now, this picture is all you will get hehe 😆 I hope you have an amazing Friday, and starting next week, I will run some amazing giveaways to celebrate with you all. But first can you help me get to 7K? I started my blog on 7 Nov and how amazing would it be to get to 7K while we celebrate?.
.
.Have a beautiful weekend guys ♥️

You are probably tired of seeing my 5 year throwbacks, but hold on, there is a good reason for this one I promise! This was my eldests first birthday at the park. I was pregnant. Nobody including myself or my husband knew. I was fatigued, moody & while there was a good reason for it I had no idea what was going on with me.
.
👩🏼‍⚕️ Little did I know, 3 weeks later I would be with an OB discussing my aversion to breastfeeding, & asking her why I felt so nauseous & like I couldn’t breathe. I would need to take breaks and couldn’t handle nursing. Yup she confirmed I was 5 weeks pregnant (after making me go to the ER twice suspecting an ectopic pregnancy for reasons I’ll explain another time)!.

@this_ruh & I are starting our Doula Diaries Live Videos tonight (Thursday) at 9PM EST (6PM PST). We will be talking about the first trimester. Covering everything from early signs of pregnancy to it’s symptoms and how to take care of yourself in those first few months. If you are pregnant/TTC or know someone who is you will want to attend this <3 Please tag mama’s you know who will benefit. We are trying to create a supportive community to help women have more positive pregnancy & birth experiences 🙏🏼. .

My little man is 5 today. 5 years ago this moment, the frantic nurses, midwife & OB rushed into my room after almost 20 hours of labor saying they couldn’t find his heartbeat! After a mini heart attack. They found it but this sneaky monkey had moved from being head down to transverse! Yes in a matter of seconds! He wasn’t ready to enter the world clearly 🤔 Well here he is now, as stubborn as when he was in my belly, but the sweetest boy ever #mashallah. His smile lights up every room, his love for his siblings, family and just people general melts my heart. We are still working on that historic patience of Prophet Ayub AS (which is why we chose that name).

My little man is 5 today. 5 years ago this moment, the frantic nurses, midwife & OB rushed into my room after almost 20 hours of labor saying they couldn’t find his heartbeat! After a mini heart attack. They found it but this sneaky monkey had moved from being head down to transverse! Yes in a matter of seconds! He wasn’t ready to enter the world clearly 🤔 Well here he is now, as stubborn as when he was in my belly, but the sweetest boy ever #mashallah. His smile lights up every room, his love for his siblings, family and just people general melts my heart. We are still working on that historic patience of Prophet Ayub AS (which is why we chose that name).

<Pregnant> Nope I am not pregnant 🤪 but I do remember the moment I found out I was pregnant. Looking down at that pregnancy test in shock. Those pregnancy symptoms. The excitement. The Fear. Everything. I remember my first pregnancy like it was yesterday. It’s funny I am typing about this because I went into labor at this EXACT moment 5 years ago!
.
🤰🏽Reflecting on how it went, Alhamdullilah I had a pretty smooth pregnancy over all but but there are a lot of things I wish I knew. Whether it was what to take when I had severe nausea, or how cramping was so normal, or even how I needed to research a good doctor & not just go to any doctor (I eventually found a good provider 7 months into pregnancy after a bad experience). There was so much I wish I did now that I have the knowledge as a Doula. I have alot of What IF’s with my pregnancies & births and this is why today, I want to support as many women as I can to have the better experiences and better prepare themselves to be mothers.
.
🎥 @this_ruh & I are starting our #DoulaDiaries Live Videos this Thursday November 8th at 9PM EST (6PM PST). We will start at the beginning of pregnancy and delve into the First Trimester and everything you need to know about it! If you are pregnant/TTC you will want to attend this! And yes please tag all your preggo friends 💕
.
. Do you remember your pregnancy like it was yesterday? What do you wish you knew when you were pregnant?

I have a confession to make. I am as strong willed as my 5 & 3 year old kids & I end up butting heads with them always. Well mostly when they are together because when they are not with each other they are angels. Does this sound familiar to you? Do you constantly tell your kids “If you do that one more time, …. will happen” and it doesn’t work for you, but it works for other moms? Super Frustrating right? 🤯
.
Apparently it’s frustrating for a reason…Kazima from @flowers_of_my_garden gave me a wake up call the other day when she shared that our consequences generally have no rhyme or reason & simply arise from our need to keep our authority in check.
.
Today on the blog (link in my bio) Kazima @flowers_of_my_garden has shared her top 3 tips for putting an end to a power struggle using contingent consequences. Contingent? What’s that? For example, instead of taking away playtime from your child when he/she doesn’t finish lunch we should let them feel hungry. It sounds scary, especially for me because I know my child will be back for snacks 5 minutes later. 🤦🏽‍♀️
.
Go check out the blog post for some more gems from Kazima and let us know what you think! inshAllah it helps you have a less power struggle filled weekend ahead. .

Inspired by @mintcandydesigns I think it’s about time I do an intro post!
. 🧕🏼 I am a mom of 3 (Almost 5, 3, & 1) based in Southern California. I moved here almost 7 years ago & my family is scattered between England, Middle East & Africa! Thank God for What’s app!.
.
✍️ Many people didn’t know this but I have a blog that is almost 2 years old!  I write about motherhood with little kids, breastfeeding, pregnancy, birth, & postpartum mental health (link in my bio 👆🏼).
.
🤓 I am super forgetful & clumsy. My family calls me “ditsy”& Dory is my second name 😂 when my bro& uncles get together it’s “let’s all tease Afra” time 😏.
.
👀 I am very determined. It works against me sometimes but it helps me never give up on the things I want to achieve. .
🤱🏼 I am LOVE breastfeeding & Alhamdullilah nursed both my kids but now with my 3rd I’m having days where I consider weaning. It’s really exhausting & I selfishly want my body back 🤦🏽‍♀️.
.
☀️ My passion is to help mothers (especially with little kids) get out of the funk that brings them down. I know the feelings of bad postpartum, isolating days as a mom & I want to build a community to help mama’s in whatever way I can.
.
🤰🏽 I finished my Doula Training over the summer and want to focus on pregnancy & postpartum support! If you are a pregnant or just had a baby & need support please reach out to me 💕.
.
💪🏼 Everyone thinks I always have it together because I seem to manage things well externally. Honestly most days I scrape through!.
.
🍰 Sugar is the love of my life. I am a huge emotional eater & I can have a large cake at 10 pm just because I have had a rough day. I hate it because it’s the biggest reason I can’t shake off some of my postpartum weight I have. I have cut out SO much since starting @zallibahi #TheFitnest6Week but I’m stuck at those last 5-8 pounds (it seems to fluctuate daily 🙈🤷🏽‍♀️).
.
💕 Sorry for the endless paragraphs but if you read all of this you are AMAZING! I tend to rant on endlessly 🤭😂 And you all know I’m not one to sugar coat anything 😉 What’s one thing you didn’t expect to hear?!

~ Monday Gratitude ~ “The most grateful of the people to Allah are those who are most grateful to others”.
.
.I am starting this week full of love & gratitude from a yesterday filled with beautiful moments. I am so thankful to have had amazing people to share our joys with. It was the craziest most stressful week, but SubhanAllah when you have the best intention and work hard (hats off to my husband and everyone else who helped us pull it off) it really shines through in the gathering you set up. And for me, not many things make me as happy than bringing people together and giving them a reason to smile and create friendships. This is why as much as event management always stressed me out, it’s one of the most fulfilling things that I did.
.
.And whilst on the topic of gratitude, I don’t know what it is about my third baby, #MashAllah #TabarakAllah he just fills our hearts. With my eldest turning 5 in a few weeks, it’s really hit me how time flies. Childhood is fleeting! 😭 My sons infancy disappeared & he’s now in a new phase already. I want to make more effort to treasure moments & be more present because before we know it, there will be a new phase.
.
.What did you wake up grateful for today?
