This magnetic clip easily makes any shirt nursing- or pumping-friendly — and you only need one hand free to use it.
Today’s pick from April comes from a new line of clothing for nursing and pumping called Madri Collection. The style of the shirt doesn’t make it obvious that it’s a nursing top, and it’s machine washable.
For the holidays two years ago, I purchased one of these for myself and one for my sister-in-law who was nursing her son. This serves somewhat of the same purpose as a Boppy but is more travel/on-the-go friendly. I think that this is a good product not only for nursing, but also for situations where … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: The Nursie
Full disclosure: I did not ever exclusively breastfeed, so I am a little limited in my knowledge of the tricks of the trade when it comes to milk supply. However, I have read a lot of message boards and posts in mom groups, and lactation cookies are frequently recommended as a means to ingest nutrients … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Lactation Cookie Bites
Before I had a child, even if you showed me the most obvious looking nursing top, I would have had no idea of its “hidden” function. I had no idea nursing tops even existed, except for the tanks that had the clips on the straps. Now that I know about this category of clothing, I’m … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Pull-Down Button-Front Nursing Top
As I previously mentioned, I combo fed from the beginning. Even though I had supply issues, I still built up a measly freezer stash — and I really liked using these bags. All of their benefits are clearly advertised on the box, and I did find that they worked as promised. They were easy to … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Breastmilk Storage Bags
From the very beginning, I had to nurse, pump, and supplement with formula. It was basically a full-time job. For those who pump — exclusively, as part of combo feeding, and/or at work — I have no idea how you would do it without a hands-free pumping bra. As much as I disliked pumping, at … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Racerback Hands-Free Pump & Nursing Bra
Unfortunately, my son only wanted warm bottles and would only drink the full amount in the bottle if it was warmed up. This posed a problem when out and about for the day. I spent so much time researching travel bottle warmers, and this is the best one that worked for us. Basically, it’s a … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Travel Bottle and Food Warmer
This is one of those products that you will use almost every day during the newborn phase. It is a multitasker that serves as a breastfeeding cover, scarf, and car seat cover. My favorite use for it by far was as a car seat cover. I frequently used my car seat (Chicco KeyFit 30) and … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Nursing and Car Seat Cover
I can see this being a controversial pick, and to be honest I’m not 100% sure how I feel about it myself. This is a company that makes jewelry out of breastmilk that you send them, and my honest initial reaction to hearing that there’s a market for this was that I was weirded out. … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Crowned Beauty Breastmilk Ring
Like many of my friends and acquaintances, I could probably write an essay about my breastfeeding “journey.” Even though I read a lot about it before having a baby, I think I still underestimated how much it could sometimes just plain HURT. Because I had supply issues right from the start, my baby stayed latched … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Soothies Gel Nursing Pads
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 … Read More about Postpartum Tuesday: Lactation Cookies
