If you’re a breastfeeding mother who works, returning to the office after your maternity leave can be one of the most overwhelming and stressful thoughts.
One thing I always tell expectant mamas to put on their registry or shopping list is comfortable PJs that you can easily nurse in. I had such a small assortment of tops and nightgowns that I could easily nurse in and with Piper’s frequent spit ups with every feed it always felt like I was […]
I’m a little late on sharing this since I’ve been out of town for a few weeks –but in case you’re breastfeeding and did not hear the news, the CDC has released suggested regulations for cleaning breast pump parts.

In conversation the other day my friend brought up a really great topic for a blog post – so I though I’d expand upon it! She’s a new mom with an adorable baby and is struggling to find clean skincare to use while breastfeeding. I remember the feeling – my skin glowed my entire pregnancy, […]

I never thought I’d need so much STUFF to breastfeed. I assumed I’d need some nipple cream and a boppy and that I’d be set. Over the course of my year nursing Piper I accumulated a lot of stuff – much of wish I had purchased while I was pregnant so I’d be better prepared […]

Today I’m excited to share our first breastfeeding story. As you know we often share birth stories on The Mama Notes – and after I posted this on Instagram, Suzanne reached out to me inspired and wanting to share her nursing story. It’s a long, but beautiful story about a new mother who was determined […]
Breastfeeding was the most challenging part of early motherhood for me, as it is for many. It’s one of the things I worried the most about while pregnant. Would she latch? Would I produce enough? Would it hurt? Would I figure out how to pump so I could leave the house? There are a few […]
We have been pretty lucky in that Piper has slept pretty well since she was about a month old. Don’t get me wrong there have been plenty of sleepless nights in our house but overall I don’t complain. I exclusively breastfed Piper until she was 13 months so this tip really only applies to those […]
I can’t believe it’s been a year that I’ve been living a restricted, dairy and soy free diet. When Piper was a tiny baby she had so many G.I. issues that were eventually resolved as reflux and an intolerance to dairy and possibly soy. This wasn’t just her frequent & abundant spit ups (that came […]
