Soothing Sore Nipples, Brought to you by Lansinoh

The first few weeks of breastfeeding aren't always easy. In fact, they were pretty excruciating for me. My Little Beauty ate like a champ and latched on "perfectly", according to my delivery nurse and the two lactation consultants that I worked with. But I still ended up with chapped, cracked, and even bleeding nipples. Every […]

My Nursing Toddler

There was something sweet about when my daughter nursed as a tiny newborn - cradled in my arms, latching on with eyes closed, squirming, those precious little squeaks. But there is something equally dear about having her nurse as a toddler - her hands cupped around my breast, kneading with one hand, how her free […]

Nighttime Weaning

Our daughter is almost thirteen months old. Although she doesn't nurse at all during the day anymore (her choice as much as mine), she still nurses throughout the night. Sometimes she wakes a few times to nurse and then dozes off contentedly. Other times, she loves to lie next to me and vie for a […]

Color choices: antique white and beige (if you're very lucky, there MIGHT be black)4. Style choices: None5. Decide on one of two ugly options.6. Look for your size.7. All of […]

Nursing Ponchos

I recently stumbled upon the Under Wraps Nursing Poncho by Victoria Laurin and Baby (pictured). Although it's on the pricey side ($39.99), it's stylish and appears to be decent in the "lightweight" and "easy to use" departments. Bundle Under has a similar product. Have you tried a nursing poncho? If so, what did you think?

Tips: Breastfeeding in Public

I remember the first few weeks of breastfeeding. I felt like I was perpetually feeding my little blue-eyed beauty. It was exhausting - and extremely trying to go anywhere in public. If we went out, I found myself immediately scoping out the locale for a secluded corner or room to escape to at the baby's […]
