Nearly five years ago, on August 6, 2011, the month of August was officially declared National Breastfeeding Month by the USBC (United States Breastfeeding Committee). In fact, the first full week of August is recognized across the World as World Breastfeeding Week. To celebrate these wonderful movements that further breastfeeding awareness, I would like to share some wonderful products with you that help make breastfeeding a breeze!
First up, Milkies Milk-Saver! One of the big fears for breastfeeding mamas is spilling/losing such precious milk, no matter the amount! It’s super frustrating (especially during the early days where leaking is more common) when baby nurses on one side and you can feel your other side leaking into the breast pad you just changed, or worse, through your shirt! Yikes! Milkies Milk-Saver is a lifesaver for these situations!
Their patented design allows you to save every drop! This awesome product holds up to two full ounces of breastmilk at a time, so it should be more than adequate to catch everything during a letdown. Milkies Milk-Saver is made in the USA and is free of BPA and phthalates. Each Milkies Milk-Saver comes with a carrying case so it can go wherever you go! The case will also double as a stand to hold the Milkies Milk-Saver upright until you can transfer the breastmilk into a milk storage bag or bottle. To purchase the Milkie Milk-Saver or any of their other fabulous products, visit their website here!
Next up, Milkflow™ Fenugreek + Blessed Thistle Chocolate Powder Drink Mix! For those looking to increase their breastmilk supply, this drink mix is the answer! No, this isn’t another tea, this is an actual drink mix and it tastes great too! If chocolate isn’t your flavor of choice, you can also get this amazing supplement in a berry flavor or a citrus flavor as well! Their website has a free sample pack if you would like to try all three before committing to an entire box, all you have to pay is $2.99 for shipping and handling.
The Milkflow™ Fenugreek + Blessed Thistle Drink Mix is a great option for women who have trouble swallowing pills. Check out the UpSpring website for these products and many others!
Next up, this awesome Allover Nursing Cover by Lassig! This nursing cover is amazing! So soft, light, and airy too! Each end of the rectangular fabric has a row of buttons/buttonholes that correspond perfectly depending on how you choose to style your nursing cover. It can be worn as a bolero, scarf, cape, or stole! Even if nursing covers aren’t your thing, this nursing cover is perfect for helping to minimize distractions when you nurse an older babe, and can also provide a nice retreat for when your little one wants a nap. The breathable and air permeable fabric is perfect for any weather!
I just had to try out all of the different ways to wear this! My favorite styles were the cape and the scarf.
The wrinkle-resistant fabric comes in nine different colors! Check them out here if you’re interested!
Last but not least, my personal favorite from the bunch, the Chic Cowl Nursing Top from Udderly Hot Mama® Nursing and Pumping Wear!
The first thing I did after opening the package was marvel at how ridiculously soft this top was! It’s absolutely perfect, and my son loves snuggling with me even more than usual when I am wearing it. The cowl neck and draping fabric make this shirt easy to pair with jeans or dress slacks. The neckline pulls down, making it easy to breastfeed or pump while wearing it. It’s the perfect top for mamas who pump at work! Using a double breast pump? No problem! This top has been designed for work with that too!
As you can see in the above photo, there is a hidden panel behind the cowl that will help keep you covered while nursing. The panel is attached with small buttons and can be removed when you no longer need it, turning this awesome nursing top into a regular staple in your wardrobe for years to come!
