Lottie Life nursing apparel for active moms.

Wardrobe Challenges As a mom who has breastfed 2 kids, I can attest that finding great nursing apparel can be a struggle. Sure, you can do the two-shirt method where you wear a nursing tank under a regular shirt and pull up the regular shirt to nurse. The tank keeps your tummy covered. Or you can continue wearing maternity clothes, which isn’t always great for your self-esteem. When I have found actual nursing pieces I like, I’ve been known to buy in several colors. If it works, I have no problem investing in great pieces because I know I am

So many moms choose to breastfeed their babies, yet many of these moms find they are struggling soon after birth. I was one of these moms. I had a plan, education, all the tools I thought I needed, but I struggled. I really, really struggled with breastfeeding.  Luckily, I found a great breastfeeding support team, and we persevered and managed to meet and exceed my breastfeeding goals. I did change my goals a bit along the way, but that’s okay! All moms have different breastfeeding goals. I always encourage moms to make both short-term and long-term goals.  The more confident

World Breastfeeding Week World Breastfeeding Week is August 1-7. The World Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a baby’s life, with continued breastfeeding in addition to solid foods up to at least 12 months of age. The truth? Breastfeeding is hard. It can be difficult physically and emotionally for new moms. According to the CDC, only 51.8% of infants are breastfed at 6 months and 30.7% of infants are breastfed at 1 year of age. Obstacles One reason mothers stop breastfeeding is a lack of support.
