Nursing Necessities: Bravado Nursing Bras

Nursing Necessities: Bravado Nursing Bras

I literally never thought I’d ever type this sentence, but my boobs and I are SO excited to have finally found “the one” – I am obsessed with Bravado nursing bras! After striking out with nursing bras from almost every store that sells them, I had basically given up and have been wearing an unlined, overstretched nursing sports bra for months! Not the exact same one everyday, but pretty close to it (which is just depressing, no?). The worst thing about nursing bras, besides being uncomfortable, is that most of the unwired ones give you uni-boob. Yes, we want easy…

Arya & Me: Our 6 Month Breastfeeding Journey

Arya & Me: Our 6 Month Breastfeeding Journey

We briefly celebrated Arya turning 6 months old on the 25th of last month, but instead of posting my usual baby update, I wanted to share an update on our 6 month breastfeeding journey. And mainly, I just want to celebrate the fact that we’ve made it this far — especially with a fun giveaway below! For some strange reason, the moment I found out I was pregnant with Arya, I just knew that I was going to try to breastfeed. I knew nothing about it, let alone how challenging it can be — but I was just curious enough…

Nursing Necessities: Milky Mama Lactation Treats

Nursing Necessities: Milky Mama Lactation Treats

Arya and I are 3 months into our breastfeeding journey, and with plenty of obstacles under my belt, I wanted to launch a new series focusing on all things milk! Today I’m sharing a hidden gem for nursing moms looking to maintain a healthy supply — Milky Mama Lactation Treats. Welcome to The Bloggerella Nursing Necessities! After the early days of engorgement subsided, I felt like I was finding my groove. My letdown was still uncomfortable but latching became a breeze. And THEN… I heard that your monthly cycle typically stayed at bay while nursing, but of course my period returned at just 8 weeks postpartum. I was disappointed…
