Breastfeeding at work: 7 tips to help nursing moms make the transition

When I returned to work while breastfeeding my first daughter, I found myself sorely unprepared for everything it entailed. I can’t even begin to convey the frustration I experienced — though I’m sure a lot of you know just what I’d been through. Add that to sleep deprivation and it was a very difficult time for me. Cue crying behind my closed office door. Looking back, I realize there’s more I could have done prior to going back to work, to make the transition a whole lot easier. (Ah, hindsight, right?) Plus, now that there are so many more workplaces doing more for working...

5 benefits of breastfeeding for moms, that we should be talking about more

Like many moms who choose to breastfeed, I was fairly aware of the benefits of breastfeeding my first baby well before I started. But I actually didn’t know how many benefits there would be for me too, at least until I was pretty far along into nursing my first baby. The more I think about it, the more I realize how much it would have helped me to focus on those upsides during those early days and months when, admittedly, I was struggling a bit. And that goes for my second, third and fourth babies. (That’s me with number two up in the photo above. So cute!)   Our newest...

The 4-in-1 nursing cover that covers way more than you’d think.

We’re typically not huge fans of nursing covers around here. Grabbing a baby blanket or muslin swaddler and tucking it into our bra straps always worked just fine for all of us when we felt the need to cover up a little more. But when I found out about the new Covered Goods nursing cover I was impressed. This nursing cover covers way more than you might think, doing quadruple duty as a nursing cover, a shopping cart cover, a car seat shade, and an infinity scarf. That’s some seriously smart thinking. And, it looks super chic too. Related: Two nursing sports bras that will have you looking...
