Milk Nursingwear {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

I like to surround myself with a group of friends from my church who all recently have had babies because we all have some much in common and so much to talk about!  Interestingly, all of our babies want to eat at the same time–right in the middle of church.  So all of us slip out to the mother’s lounge at the same time and enjoy getting to visit with each other while nursing!  Weird?  Well, all of our babies are turning into feisty, squirmy chunkers who are becoming less interested in breastfeeding, and more interested in talking with their other baby friends, so its getting kind of difficult!  I had to laugh this last Sunday as almost everyone in the lounge was trying to tackle their baby back into their lap while staying decently covered.  We were all struggling!  How I wish I was wearing my new top from Milk Nursingwear!

Their tops and dresses come in some great styles and lovely fall colors.  And they don’t even look like nursing tops!  Here are some of my favorites:

 

And the dresses are just as lovely. These solid colors and sleek designs are so easy to dress up or down, making them extremely versatile.  The styles allow for discreet nursing, and access that doesn’t entail lifting up the whole shirt, or pulling across a whole portion of the garment.

I am so so pleased with the side-shirred nursing top in long sleeves I picked out!  It has become my favorite nice shirt to wear when I go out this winter.  I’m impressed with the construction and the shirring details on the side.  I love that it is long enough, warm enough, modest enough, and I’m happy about the color.  It looks like it will hold up after a large amount of washing and baby-pulling, and remain free of snags and piling.

Time to brag: I just stepped on the scale this week, and weighed in at some incredible number I haven’t seen since I was 15!  This is 100% thanks to breastfeeding!  If you’re on the fence and have ever needed another reason to breastfeed your babies, let this be a huge motivator!

One lucky winner will receive $35 to spend at Milk Nursingwear!

Being able to breastfeed my babies has been quite a rewarding, fulfilling, bonding experience.  I love that I’m giving my babies a good head start in life and that I’m offering them custom-made nutrients along with my own immunities towards some nasty stuff going around right now.

For those of you who have also nursed your children, you know it can be a joy and a pleasure, but it can also feel like you are tethered to this time-consuming and not-always-convenient obligation.  I cannot imagine what kind of an intense commitment it would be to try and keep up your milk supply as a working mother outside the home.  The time alone that it takes to pump would drive me insane.  Not to mention how physically awkward and sometimes painful it can be.

Simple Wishes has created in innovative product that transforms your experience “at the pump”.  They have designed a signature hands free pumping bra that allows you to MULTITASK!  There is the key, ladies!  You can relax and free up your hands while hooked up to a breastpump, and concentrate on all the other hundred things that have to get done!

This pumping bra is adjustable in size so you can obtain a perfect fit regardless of what physical phase of motherhood you are in (aka milk supply and weight fluctuations).  Straps and a 2” zip-in center panel allow for an even better fit.  A perfect fit is practically guaranteed.  The pumping bra looks comfortable enough to wear throughout the day, but also easy enough to slip on and off without removing a nursing bra or shirt.  The hands free pumping bra is also machine washable, and designed in the USA.

I can only imagine what a life-saver this pumping bra is for the working mother, but also for the mother who pumps often because of variable schedules.  I just have to mention the list of celebrities with the Simple Wishes Hands-Free Bustier that includes Angelina Jolie, Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, Julie Bowen, and Minnie Driver!!

Doesn’t this look like a genius product?!  If you are a breastfeeder, or plan on being one in the future, get excited because one lucky winner will receive their very own Simple Wishes Hands-Free Bustier in your size and choice of color!

Think back to the moments in your life when you felt the most glamorous.  Might one of those times be your wedding day?  Senior year Prom?  That time you spent an entire paycheck on a day at the spa?

Do any of you nursing mothers feel like these glamorous days are a little far and in-between these days?  Is it the whole “I have to half undress myself to feed a crying baby atleast 20x a day and expose my fluffy belly skin to the world” lifestyle that gets us down?  I believe every mom deserves to feel like a “Glamourmom” every day!  Glamourmom is a shop of lovely tops, tanks, bras, and sleepwear “designed exclusively with moms and moms-to-be in mind with the idea that every woman deserves to be a Glamourmom!”

They specialize in nursing bra tanks that have a full built-in cotton nursing bra that allows for full discretion and support when nursing.

I was quite impressed with the Glamourmom® Nursing Bra Top with Lace I received from the Glamourmom outlet.  I like that the nude color actually looks a little more creamy pink.  It is clearly made out of high quality materials, strong enough to hold in a little post-baby fluff I’m carrying around.  The full built-in nursing bra is sturdy and substantial, and not at all like wimpy built-in bras in other tanks I own.  I’m also a big fan of the one-handed access hook closure and the lace detail is a nice touch.

And what’s that?  They have an outlet?  Its true!  All outlet sales are final and there are no refunds and no exchanges, but the apparel found here is 30-70% off original prices!  Shopping here reminds me of shopping up the outlet malls on Black Friday 🙂

Take a look at this Glamourmom® Tanikini Swimsuit!  For $29.99!  It may not be swimsuit season, but there’s nothing wrong with being prepared if you’re planning on hitting the pool this summer with a nursing baby!

Go check out the other Glamourmom nursingwear, and see what’s on sale at the Glamourmom Outlet!

Udder Covers {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Hello again, breastfeeding mothers!  Let’s talk about nursing in public.  Sometimes it has to be done.  Sometimes the baby needs to eat that very second!  Sometimes you don’t want to have to hide away in a bathroom stall to feed your baby, because you really just want to finish your lunch with your girlfriends!  I’ve been there.  That’s when a beautiful nursing cover from Udder Covers becomes the most handy item in your purse.  Say hello to nursing in style!

Honestly, I thought I could get by with using a blanket while nursing in public to drape over my shoulder.  I decided this was no longer an option pretty much after my first outing in public.  Three problems:

1) my babies get super grabby and pull at everything in their reach, including the blanket

2) they get so hot, and my 2nd-born especially can’t stand anything on his head or face

3) I constantly have to check on them, see if they’re eating ok, if they’ve fallen asleep, etc.

These Udder Covers are the perfect breastfeeding friend because they are lightweight (aka breathable for a baby and not too hot), they have rounded boning in the neckline so you can see your little baby and still be discreet, and they come in so many lovely lovely fabric choices!  I chose the Elsa cover, even though I only have baby boys 🙂 I decided than even though they’re boys, I’M a girl, and still want to wear a pretty cover–and that romantic tiffany blue and bold flower design was just calling my name!

As if this giveaway couldn’t get any better, also included in this prize is a Milk Bandsâ„¢ nursing bracelet.  Milk Bandsâ„¢ nursing bracelets keep track of which side you nursed from, what time and how long all on one wrist!

This is SO useful!  I can never remember which side I fed my baby from last, and I’ve been wearing a hair-tie on my wrist for 6 months now, since the day “Little Brother” was born to remind me which side to nurse from!  Milk Bandsâ„¢ nursing bracelet = so much more accurate!

The winner will receive an Udder Cover gift set!  The 3 piece kit includes a nursing cover in your choice of print, a Milk Bands™ nursing bracelet and 2 pairs of Udder Covers™ 5 ply washable breast pads!  Talk about a fabulous new mother gift!

With my first pregnancy, I had grand expectations of going back to my “normal” clothes, eating a “normal” diet, feeling “normal”, etc.  Imagine my surprise to find out that when you’re breastfeeding, hardly anything changes!   A breastfeeding mother still has crazy food impulses (hello, I’m starving ALL THE TIME!), still has some crazy hormonal things going on (why is suddenly all my hair falling out?), and still has to wear special clothes!  Nursing tops, nursing camis, and especially and most important, nursing bras.

A good nursing bra is totally essential.  When you’re breastfeeding around the clock, this is one clothing item that takes a lot of wear and tear, pulling, stretching, supporting, and washing.

I’m being completely honest when I tell you I just found my favorite nursing bra of all time.  I picked out a Lace Nunderwire® Nursing bra from Nursing Bra Express, and I am SO so pleased.  I have literally worn it every day except wash day this week.  I think its beautiful, so supportive, and provides great shape.  And get this, the underwire is removable, so it can become a soft bra as well.  I can’t say enough about this wonder, only that I know this is the only nursing bra I’ll need, and I’m ready to buy another one because its only $24!

Nursing Bra Express carries so many excellent options and sizes.  That’s one reason why I’ve stopped buying bras at the usual stores, and gone to strictly online.  But don’t be scared of ordering the wrong size or fit, because Nursing Bra Express has a great return/exchange policy.

Look at this “Wrap N Snap” nursing bra—you can un-snap and re-snap to adjust the fit as your body grows bigger and smaller during pregnancy and nursing, because boy oh boy are there some changes your body goes through!

Also, this Lotus Nursing Bra by Belabumbum expands with your growing body and the clasps can be opened and closed with one hand.  All these features that you don’t think about that turn out to be pretty handy!

Nursing Bra Express also carries more than just nursing bras.  They also have nursingwear, nursing tanks, baby slings and more.

    

If you’re pregnant, this is the giveaway for you.  If you’re currently nursing, this is your giveaway.  If you plan on ever nursing a future child, get on it.

One lucky winner will receive:  a bra of their choice under $25!
