Paris in Motion

Parlez-Vous Loco?

One of my friends shared this timelapse video with me on Facebook and I had to share here too because it’s super cool. Plus I love his music choice; I think a little Massive Attack is a nice way to see (and hear) Paris. This. Makes me very happy I live here. This and about a million other things.

If you feel a “let-down” (tingley feeling) or are nursing on the opposite side, apply pressure to the nipple area with your hand.  If you are not breastfeeding at the time, you can conspicuously cross your arms across your chest, applying slight pressure.  Do this until you feel the sensation of…
