I have talked about my love for Bamboobies before, and now that I have been nursing for a month, I’m here to tell you my favorites products and why! I am blessed that nursing has come easy for me, but really great products make it even easier. Since the hospital, I have lived, and I mean lived 24/7, in these nursing tanks. They are soft, so comfortable (not too tight or too loose), and the perfect amount of support. I don’t want to put anything else on.
Their nursing pads are also my favorite. The reusable ones are SO SOFT and “cutesy”, not that it matters, but it helps! And the disposable ones are the perfect size and don’t get all gross after 2 seconds.
The last product that is a must have for me is their boob ease nipple balm. I don’t use it as much as I did my first 2 weeks postpartum, but it is something all nursing mama’s need! I love that it isn’t thick and sticky, and it really helps ease the pain.
Bamboobies totally has us nursing mom’s covered, and they know what they are doing! They can be found at your local Target, and online. You should follow them on IG too, because they always post little sales they are having that you wouldn’t otherwise know about! Go you nursing mama, go!
As a new mom again, I’m learning about all sorts of new baby companies. Companies with products I had no idea that I needed. You NEED so much stuff as a Mom! If you are nursing or have nursed before, you understand me when I say that I worry if my baby is getting enough. With Saylor, I took measures to ensure I was (over) producing, because I didn’t want to starve my baby! This time around I understand my body a little bit better, but how are you ever sure that your baby is getting enough?
One of my friends told me about Momsense…this handy little gadget that lets you listen while your baby nurses, then sends you information to your smart phone on your nursing session. It records the baby swallowing, lets you know how long they nurse for, and the quantity consumed on each side. You hook it up to your phone and everything is kept track of on their app. It is so simple, and really helps put your mind at ease.
Momsense is on sale for a killer price right now, only $49. It is normally $89 so it really is a good deal. I highly recommend this product, especially if you are wanting to know how much your baby has nursed!
I feel like this blog took me 18 hours to write up and post…I am THAT tired. 3 weeks of only getting 5ish hours of sleep is finally catching up to me! I’m not (really) complaining haha, I just forgot what it was like to not get good sleep! I know it won’t last forever so I am really trying to appreciate those quiet, middle of the night moments with Remi and I. Thanks for all your love and support and patience, being a Mom to more than 1 is no joke! Happy weekend!
Here I am with only 5 weeks left in my pregnancy, and I can’t believe it! It feels almost surreal, because this time around it has DRAGGED. The nerves and anxiety are slightly starting to creep up, especially because I have nothing prepared. I should probably get a car seat! One thing I’m certain about is breastfeeding, and I can’t believe I’m almost there again. I was so lucky with Saylor and nursing, we had a great experience and had no issues. I can only hope that with this little girl it is the same.
Bamboobies carry natural and comfortable nursing pads and other items for the pregnant and nursing mom. I have been living in this black nursing bra for the past few weeks, it is SO comfortable. It is made from bamboo fabric so you can imagine how soft it is.
The 3 products shown above I am particularly excited to start using. Organic Nipple Balm, Washable Nursing Pads, and this Pumping Lubricant. This company has such a good reputation so I am so excited to fall in love with all of their things! You can conveniently find them at Target, which is AWESOME because we all love Target!
Let me know if you have used them and loved them, and if you have another product from Bamboobies you love, tell me so I can try it!
Being a first time mom, I am constantly scouring the Internet and Instagram for the latest and greatest. I love baby gear, and finding new products or accessories that I can’t live without. (Sorry, Troy!) I am NOT an expert, just a lady who has tried lots of different things and is here to share what you absolutely NEED! I can’t possibly cover everything in one post, so this will be a start.
–Nursing? You need nipple cream and nursing pads (I preferred the reusable kind). Also, a good nursing cover! BONUS, this one can be used 3 ways!
Be sure to follow @copperpearl on IG for discounts and new products!
— Fischer-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper. This got so much use when Saylor was little! It is lightweight, easy to move around, and has the perfect incline position.
— A Sling Bathtub! We had one like THIS ONE and used it for almost a full year. The sling is perfect for when they are little, then the actual bath part is great for when they are learning to sit up/first learn to sit up on their own.
— A TRAVEL SYSTEM! This is an absolute must. Newborns sleep so much, and who wants to transfer a sleeping baby in and out of their car seat every time you are going somewhere? No one! Insert car seat in stroller and you are good to go. There are so many options in this field that it honestly could be its own blog post. but THIS ONE from Britax is always a top pick.
— Swaddle blankets. Lots and lots of them! I particularly loved the Aden and Anais brand, but to each their own! I used them for everything. Stroller blankets, burp rags, nursing covers…they will get lots of use!
That concludes my list for today, as Saylor is waking up from her nap. Trust me, we only scratched the surface! What are some of your must haves?
