Postpartum Tuesday: Lactation Cookies

The other day at Target, I wound up in the maternity & infant section, where I hadn’t been in a while. I was intrigued to see that Target has lactation cookies for a much more affordable price than I paid for the very tasty Milkmakers cookies (also at Target) a thousand years ago. I thought I’d share these other lactation cookies with you guys and also ask which you’ve tried to increase your milk supply. (Or do you make lactation cookies from scratch?) Note that Target also sells individual Milkmakers cookies, so you can try the various flavors. The pictured cookies are $10 for 10 at Target. Booby Boons Lactation Cookies Oatmeal Raisin

Nursing Tuesday: Toffee Nursing Camisole

This nursing camisole from Cake is getting rave reviews at Nordstrom. Yes, $55 may seem like a lot for an undergarment, but as every pumping and nursing mom knows, a nursing camisole is likely the primary thing you’ll wear on a daily basis to raise your neckline and give you enough coverage while you’re pumping or nursing in public. This comes in the pictured apple color as well as cinder toffee and honey toffee, and sizes are S–XL. Toffee Nursing Camisole

Here’s a plus-size option.

Maternity Monday: Brookfield Dress

Happy Monday! Did you guys know that Of Mercer has a maternity collection that’s all office-appropriate? A lot of the pregnant models are featured on the site wearing (and looking good in) dresses in straight sizes, but this one is only in maternity sizes. It comes in black and navy, and I like that there’s a snap closure at the waist that’s adjustable. There are also hidden zippers to allow you to nurse after the baby arrives. It’s a nice, loose dress for that postpartum transition period, and it’s machine washable, too (lay flat to dry). The dress is $195 at Of Mercer in sizes XS-XL. Brookfield Dress

Postpartum Tuesday: Pumping in Progress Sign

pumping in progress sign - great for the officeHappy New Year, ladies! This cute “pumping in progress” sign could be great for the office, I think — it’s clear, easy to read, and will definitely be noticed on your office door — and it’s a great deal more attractive than the hand-written or typed-out “PUMPING IN PROGRESS” signs I’ve always seen taped on doors.  For those of you who’ve spent a lot of time pumping at the office, what are your thoughts — what methods did you find worked best to deter people from coming inside your office when you were pumping? (If anyone had to trek to a pumping room or other dedicated space, care to write a guest post?) The sign is $15 at Etsy. Breastfeeding Sign – Pumping Sign – Privacy Sign – Breastfeeding Door Hanging Sign – Pumping in Progress Sign

Nursing Tuesday: High/Low Jersey Cardigan

I’m always amazed when I come across something I bought several years ago that’s still in stock. I first got acquainted with this high/low jersey cardigan from Bobeau at when I was nursing my first son — I wanted something that was warm and soft and washable that had a little bit of color. It seemed like everything I was finding at the time was gray, and all the mothers on TV and in movies were wearing gray, and I thought that since I already felt exhausted and super blah after having a baby, I wanted something more colorful. This cardigan has been at Nordstrom for a thousand years and is great for the weekend and for around the house. For nursing, it isn’t quite as discreet as Bobeau’s fleece wrap cardigan (which also comes in plus sizes) … but honestly I’ve never liked that one. If you’re nursing in public, though, I can see how it could be better — but I liked this one for nursing around the house. It comes in eight colors at Nordstrom for $58, and although it occasionally comes in petite sizes, they’re not currently available, it seems. The fleece wrap cardigan is on sale for $39 and has an incredible 3,900 reviews. High/Low Jersey Cardigan

Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Riley Plaid Shirtdress

Loyal Hana Shift DressAvert your eyes from the sneakers (though kind of good to know it will look cute on your commute?), and note that this lovely maternity dress ALSO has those clever Loyal Hana zippers for nursing access — so it’s good while you’re pregnant, as well as afterwards. I like the loose fit and the split neckline, as well as the black/white plaid.  Riley Plaid Maternity/Nursing Shirtdress
