We've been giving and living on-the-road for over four months now. We're simultaneously excited and exhausted, petrified and peaceful. We're also gearing up to launch a "phase 2" of our year of learning (stay tuned).
In the meantime, I wanted to say a huge thank you to two of our sponsoring brands.
Lansinoh is a brand of products that supports breastfeeding. Listen in as I share a few of my favorites. Also - I follow Lansinoh on Twitter (do you?).
mOmma (pronounced with the long o, like Mozart) is a line of dishes from Switzerland for little ones...especially under age one. Check out this candid little clip I caught on camera a few mornings ago, pre-breakfast. Two. Cutest. Kids. Ever.
Have you ever used Lansinoh and/or mOmma products? What did you think?
I watched this video like 5 times...Those two are so cute! Proud to call them my nieces. =)
I've watched it about a hundred times too. The best part is that it was totally candid - even the little "byes" at the end. Somehow I ended up with the cutest kids ever. :)
The mOmma products are great! I especially love the little spoon that stays upright. And I like how the plate is nice and deep so food doesn't go flying anywhere. We also have a sippy cup that we've never used my son doesn't drink out of them anymore - so I'm excited that we'll get to use it on the baby :)
I really like Lansinoh products. In fact this week, I stocked up on their nursing pads for my expected new arrival in a few weeks. Lansinoh nursing pads were the only pads that I found to be extremely absorbant and discreet. All other nursing pads that I tried, the outline could be seen through my shirt, felt bulky, and did not hold as much milk as the Lansinoh pads.
I also used the Lansinoh ointment on sore nipples those first few weeks. I have had summer babies, so I would put my ointment in the fridge and if my nipples were too sore, I would simply apply the cooled cream directly to the nursing pads. What a difference that made!
If I know an expectant mother who is going to nurse, I will frequently gift the breast pads and cream since they proved to be invaluable to me!
Thanks for sharing that tip about putting the cream in the fridge! Good idea - I'll have to remember that when we eventually have baby #3.
I love the Lansinoh products. I didn't need the cream but the pads were great. My 2 year old liked the videos too!
I used Lansinoh cream when I was nursing. I know they also make affordable pumps.
Your girls are the cutest :)
Lansinoh lanolin is amazing stuff. It saved my nipples a number of times. I never needed the breast pads, I never leaked. But the leftover boxes are packed away waiting for baby number 2 someday.
Your girls are so sweet. I love how videos.
Loved Lansinoh. Great products and more affordable than many others.
I did use Lansinoh products when I was nursing and agree that they were excellent products - good quality! I
I've seen the mOmma products but we've never used them. My kids are getting big enough I won't invest in them for us now, but I have been buying things like this to give at baby showers - so useful and you really don't realize how useful until you try using the other alternatives! I especially like the big easy-to-use handles on the silverware!
Our girls are actually a bit too big for the mOmma product line too. We recently passed on the set to a friend with a just-turned-1-year-old.
Lansinoh is a LIFE SAVER! I used both the ointment and the breast pads for MONTHS after both of my kiddos. In fact, I typically give both when giving a shower gift...regardless of what else I may make/get, I always include these two items. And, truth be told, I am not one of those glamorous nursing moms...I had heaps of milk (is that an overshare?) and pretty much wore Lansinoh breast pads every day for almost a year. No joke!
And your girls are just precious!
I often buy Lansinoh cream as a baby shower gift too. Sometimes I put together a little "breastfeeding kit" for new moms that includes nursing pads, snacks, and a nursing tank or nightgown.
I just found your blog a few days ago, searching for Skirt Sports skirts, actually, and I've been loving reading all of your posts! Your little girls are just so adorable!!! Y'all have such a cute family!
Thanks so much for your kind words, Kayla! Have you tried the athletic skirts by SkirtSports? I just wore my Gym Girl on a run this morning. :)
