Breastfeeding products, tips, and advice for moms and moms to be.


When I was pregnant with my first baby, I remember being a bit bewildered by all of the hospital packing lists out there. I wondered what to pack in my hospital bag...and I especially wondered what to bring as a "coming home outfit." Now that I have had two babies, I know what to look […]

Nursing Clothes Review: Japanese Weekend

As I mentioned in a previous post, nursing clothes are not a necessity...but they can be very nice. Especially in circumstances that may require you to nurse in public (example: taking a trip by plane).   I know some women feel comfortable nursing anytime, anywhere - but I'm a more private person. If I am […]
