Web Coolness – sexy nursing bras, awesome playhouses, and a $20,000 crib

cake lingerieHere are some things we’ve liked reading around the web this week. We hope you will too.

On Momformation, Kristen asks should nursing bras be sexy? (You can guess the answer.)

Mamas of boys: You’ll love this new site, The Frog and Snail Society, started by talented blogger and CMP friend Roxanna Sarmiento.

We’re blown away by these amazing kids playhouses inspired by modern architecture. (Eh, who needs to save for college.)

Speaking of splurges, yes, Mariah Carey spent $20,000 on a crib.

We’re digging one of our reader’s imaginative new homemade baby food blog, Yumnums. Quince Puree, anyone?

Help one of Dan Zanes’ awesome musicians create an East Asian family folk music album through Kickstarter.

Great list at Babble of the Top 50 Mom Food Bloggers including some of our own faves.

Recently, Liz had the honor of judging the finalists of the Torch Boys/Girls Club national service initiative. Congrats to the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver who raised awareness and money in a wonderful program for children with Downs Syndrome.

    If there is something (under garments included) that can make a pregnant woman feel better – go for it! The little things really make a difference:)

    They totally should be, though your photo shoes a pregnant woman and nursing bras are for women who have babies and are nursing…so maybe the question should be should maternity bras be sexy — either way YES – there were days I felt more sexy pregnant than not and there were days I needed a cute pick me up when nursing.

    Thanks for the link to Frog and Snail – love it, added to my reader! So hard to find really good content on boys. And I only wish I had found Yumnums when my two were infants. I made all their baby food from scratch and loved doing it. Will definitely direct new moms I know to that site!

    CMP does a great job of connecting moms with original content, so appreciate the work you all do.
