Hotmilk Lingerie Makes Mamas Feel Sexy!

I've been nursing my little man for just a few days shy of 16 months. I had expected us to get at least this far since I made it to 19 with his sister, but what I hadn't expected was how different of a journey it would be. I often find myself enjoying my breastfeeding relationship with my son more than I did with my daughter. And I think a big part of that is because my son has similar limits when it comes to personal space. He's very sweet and snuggly, but he's also quite into doing his own thing. So although he loves his mama milk, he also loves drinking from his sippy while exploring the world. And frankly, I'm perfectly fine with that … [Read more...]

Extending My Breastfeeding Modesty with Undercover Mama

It is not easy to be a big breasted woman on a budget. I tell you that. Essentials for breastfeeding make it even more difficult. Nursing tanks can be really expensive and not all of them work for big breasts. I'm lucky to have held onto the tanks form my first child. They are the old style Target tanks that have been remodeled since to be less awesome. I have 6 of those and live in them. Since my baby is now a toddler he's nursing less. This means I can go much longer between nursing sessions. And what that means is I can wear normal clothes! Or at least close to normal. If I tried really hard I could probably get away with an all day outing … [Read more...]

Keeping Up the Fun with 5-hour ENERGY®

Disclaimer: I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser.  Being a mom is hard work. There's the early wake up calls, the demand for food, the chores, the "I didn't really plan to clean poop off my walls today" incidents, and the frantic search to squeeze in some me time. I admittedly sacrifice sleep for "me time." Sometimes I reach for copious amounts of coffee trying to perfectly time the crash around nap time. Other times I need to stay alert and get things done. That's where 5-hour ENERGY® shots come in … [Read more...]

Keep Baby Close with Lalabu

A lot of moms agree that keeping their newborn close is a top priority. When babies are near us they feel safe. Being close to mom regulates breathing, body temperature, and allows for a more in sync bonding experience for both mom and baby. Generally parents who want this constant closeness reach for a wrap or baby carrier. Though very popular, wraps can be clunky or intimidating. The Lalabu Soothe Shirt™ strives to offer the same comfort of a wrap without the hassle of a carrier. Meet Ashlee and baby Nathan. Ashlee is my local admin for the Tampa Bay Babywearing group. Nathan is an HBAC baby born at home in March. As you can see, he is … [Read more...]

A New Take on Breastfeeding Fashion {Linzy Dawn Designs Review}

Back in February I wrote a post at Breastfeeding Place about how I enjoyed using an infinity scarf for keeping modest while nursing in public. Now I'm not one to say you have to cover up, or even that covering up is admitting breastfeeding is shameful. I believe that what is most important is that baby is being fed and mama is comfortable. Most mothers I know can't be bothered with a cover, but for some this means mom might choose to cover up in order to avoid those glares from the public. I generally dress to feed every single day so I don't have to worry about it when the time comes to nurse in public. And that's why I love infinity … [Read more...]

Fold a Nursing Cover Without Damaging the Boning

Anders is teething. Molars or something. I don't really know, but I know it's driving me batty. Since I have a busy week next week preparing for our trip to Kentucky (I'm going alone with two kids... kill me), I'm trying my best to stay ahead on my "important stuff." None of which is actually a necessity, but the stress of having things to do makes me feel alive. I work best under pressure. I just got finished writing a letter to an old friend. In it I explained how I've been making these little to-do lists and rewarding myself for crossing things off. I read once that productivity motivates you. Apparently it's best to put easy things on … [Read more...]
