Being a new mom that exclusively breastfeeds I am learning that it can be a real pain in the ass, especially when you are on the go. You can have the most functional top or outfit, but if you didn’t prepare and put on the right nursing bra, forget about it. It’s a hassle and a milky mess! Well, for me anyway. Now that I am regaining brain cells, getting an additional hour of sleep per day, and feeling confident enough to have a conversation, I won’t pass up the opportunity to get some fresh air. It’s summer and I refuse to stay in! When I have the opportunity to get out of the house, I jump on it! So this means no planning… grab that diaper bag hoping that it has enough diapers and bail!
Let’s talk about breastfeeding in public. Everyone has their two cents about it. While I believe it should be normalized, it can still be a little intimidating and takes some getting used to. I am still getting the feel as to when I need full coverage or when I am comfortable enough to just go for it and feed my lil’ guy out in the open. Bamboobies makes a simple, chic shawl that is also a nursing cover, and I always have with me. I can literally breastfeed in line at Starbucks with this thing on. If you haven’t invested in one yet, you can get your’s here.
I don’t know about you ladies out there, but OMG I am producing like a machine! This means LEAKAGE, and lots of pads = lots of trash. I LOVE Bamboobies super absorbent, reusable, and eco-friendly nursing pads. They are extra soft, come in cute colors and heart shapes, and you can get a multipack for light or heavy leakage.
I keep hearing painful stories about cracked nipples, making the experience that much more of a challenge. My method of intervention is Bamboobies Organic Nipple Balm. All you Mommies out there working your tails off to feed these growing babies, if you are suffering, this is the stuff you are looking for. What I like about this product is that it is all organic, pesticide free, and non-toxic, making it safe for you and your baby.
Breastfeeding is such a beautiful and natural experience, but not all of us have it easy. All of the challenges can make it rather discouraging. It’s nice to know there are products available to us that assist through the process or prevent issues early on. Bamboobies has a selection of awesome breastfeeding products that you can browse here.
I’ve teamed up with Bamboobies and they are giving away all 3 of the products I’ve reviewed in this post! Yep, the Nursing shawl, the Multipack Nursing Pads, and the Organic Nipple Balm!
