Clever nursing-friendly clothing from Boob
Can we talk about that awkward transition that happens with your wardrobe when you go from pregnant to breastfeeding? All the comfortable, beautiful dresses you might have worn in pregnancy no longer work for breastfeeding because you'd have to pull them all the way up and over your boobs, revealing everything below to anyone within sight. ...

Lactation Biscuits -- for increasing your milk supply
Wilkie weighed 3.8 kilos at birth (a big, tall baby!), and after the initial weight loss that most newborns experience, it took him nearly three weeks to put back on his birth weight. The midwives weren't overly concerned, especially knowing I had successfully breastfed four other babies, but they did start suggesting natural ways to ...

Two to Tandem: Breastfeeding two at the same time
  Being a mother means making tons of decisions, and leaves you with a lot of .... questions. Being a second-time mother somehow seems to double the amount of decisions needed, and sometimes double the number of questions you need to ask yourself about what you are doing. Is this best for the baby? The ...

New (for me) Elle MacPherson nursing bra
I'm a big fan of Elle MacPherson nursing bras. They're elegant, fit well, and stay in super shape (I still have a pair from when I was nursing Sara, now 7 years old)! I love the Maternelle (it's super comfy), the La Mere (it's sexy), and I was excited to discover that there now is ...

Like a sexy maternity bra -- Elle MacPherson does it for me. And, trust me, good nursing pads are an absolute must too. These glamourous Glitzy Gals nursing pads from Itzy ...

Sensible nursing bra
When it comes to cute nursing bras we all agree that the Maternelle nursing bras by Elle Macpherson are the best, as Courtney already mentioned. But if you're like me and have a tendency to develop engorged painful breasts in the first weeks of breastfeeding, then only the softest bras will do... I discovered with ...

Breastfeeding in public
I deeply believe in the benefit of breastfeeding, and actually enjoy it. Unfortunately I live in a city that doesn't make life easy for breastfeeding mums. There are very few public places that have a mum&baby room worthy of that name and where it's possible to breastfeed while out and about. There aren't any Starbucks, ...
