MAM Anti-Colic bottles are a favorite of both breastfeeding moms and bottle-feeding moms. One of the main reasons is MAM’s unique “Silk Nipple.” This extra-soft nipple makes the switch between breast and bottle easier than using a traditional (harder) silicone nipple. While I was breastfeeding, I worried about nipple confusion even though I wanted my husband’s help with nighttime feedings. Thankfully, our baby was able to switch easily from bottle to breast using the MAM Anti-Colic bottle. We were … Read entire article »

Mamanista’s Going to BlogHer!

On Wednesday, I’ll board a plane for the first time since my son’s birth in April 2008 to attend the BlogHer conference in Chicago. I would like to thank Medela for sponsoring my trip to BlogHer and WebmasterRadio.fm for their support. I am excited to meet fellow bloggers in person, but I’m also still in shock that I’m attending this event.

Breastfeeding may be best for baby, but there’s no denying that it is a major commitment for moms.

Pump It Up!

Pump It Up!

As a breastfeeding mom, I’m really attached to my baby in the literal sense. Newborns need to eat frequently, with some “dining at mom’s” every two hours or so.  If you want to breastfeed and go back to work, go out on a child-free date with your husband, or just have someone else take one of those night feedings, you need to pump and store your milk.  Here are some of my favorite picks for … Read entire article »
