Milk Smart Mama

So, I’ve been very proud of my little one and myself that we are about 3 and 1/2 months into nursing and we do VERY little supplementing. With my first two, it was fairly significant. I breastfed primarily for the first 6 weeks or so and then we bottle fed 1/3 to 1/2 of the time. With my oldest it was because I went back to work, and with my middle it was because he was underweight and I thought it was related to not getting enough breastmilk. (3 years later I now know that’s just how God made him.)

With Weston I nurse almost exclusively (unless he still acts hungry immediately following a feeding or I am away from him). In fact, on our recent family vacation I nursed everywhere! In the van, in the hotel, at the Zoo, under a tree at Sea World – I even majorly flashed a lady at the gas station because I thought the van windows were tinted enough, but the way the sun hit it exposed EVERYTHING. Sorry.

This has brought along a whole new set of challenges, most of which revolve around nursing attire. I have two nursing bras that I use interchangeably and then I try to juggle my clothing options so that I wear the easy to access items when we are out of the house. However, I’ve recently realized that it’s going to be necessary for me to find some nursing clothing if I’m going to continue to nurse so exclusively.

Enter Milk Smart Mama!

Some of the nursing clothing I’ve seen is just about hideous. It looks dated. It looks contrived – I mean really can’t you hide those access pockets a little more subtly?? But at Milk Smart Mama, there are so many options everyone should be able to find something that works for them.

The carry maternity clothing, sleepwear, nursing tops, bottoms, swimwear, underclothing. Honestly, if you’re looking for good quality nursing clothes, this is the place to go. It isn’t cheap, but if it works, looks good and lasts, it’s well worth it in my world.

Milk Smart Mama sent me this Sleeveless Baby Doll top by Milk. I didn’t realize that it also came in black, blue and green or I probably would have gone with black. But the pink is fun and works well for this crazy summer in Texas

I adore this top. I tried it on when it came in the mail and my husband laughed at me because I never took it off. It’s made of super comfortable cotton. The top is made to work well with a nursing bra or allow you to go without if you want. The smocking is firm and cut with extra material on top and bottom so that my entire chest is covered with extra material left! That never happens for me even when I’m not nursing. I half jokingly told Joey maybe I should continue to buy these clothes when I’m not nursing anymore if they’re the only ones that are ever going to fit correctly on top.

If you are needing a good nursing top or just want something that will fit your large busts I would recommend you check out Milk Smart Momma! There is free shipping on any purchase over $50 and they have some cool stuff in the clearance bin.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
