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

 
Tips for Breastfeeding Support & Success

Breastfeeding support

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

Dear nursing mom with spit up down your back, unkempt hair, and no earrings for fear of having your piercings stretched out beyond repair: I have been there. I know exactly what it feels like to feel like to be a hot mess leaving my house.

My Journey to Discovering MilkDaze Nursing Pads

milkdaze nursing pads

When I had my first baby, I was definitely learning everything as I went. Breast pads weren’t even on my radar before my first son was born. He surprised us by coming two weeks early and although I had everything I needed for labor and the baby, I was missing things I needed for myself. Thankfully my sweet sister offered to run out for anything I overlooked – one of which was a pack of disposable nursing pads. My first baby: disposables My milk came in pretty quickly, so I was grateful to have them on hand. I quickly discovered that I’m what

 
Getting Started on Your Breastfeeding Journey

Breastfeeding can be a very rewarding part of being a mother. It can also be very stressful. Being prepared and getting off to a good start can make all the difference. Educating yourself on the basics of breastfeeding can help you be more successful. Preparing for breastfeeding can begin while you are still pregnant. Attend a breastfeeding class. Many hospitals offer breastfeeding classes. Develop relationships with friends who are breastfeeding or who have breastfed their children. Locate your local LLL (La Leche League ) for mother to mother breastfeeding support (3). Read breastfeeding books (see references at the end of this blog). If you
