I wanted to talk a little bit about feeding babies and the sweet bonds we form while taking care of their needs, bottle or breast. When it comes to taking care of babies, feeding, sleeping, etc. I have ALWAYS been a firm believer in the "do what works for you" motto. I truly believe that as moms we need to do what works for us and our babies, not necessarily what the books say, or your baby expert friend might tell you. It's so easy to be hard on ourselves and feel bad about not doing things perfectly. I nurse my babies because it has worked best for me and for them. With that said, it's not always easy, nor perfect. I guess the point I am trying to make is that I want all my mommy readers to be proud of yourselves for being the best mom for your own kids.
Whether you nurse or bottle feed, work or stay home, etc.
Be proud of what you do and know that you are doing a good job.
Some of the sweetest and most simple moments I remember with my girls are while feeding them;
holding them so close and soaking in their sweet breath. The little smiles mid-eating, milk dripping down those little cheeks, they just kill me every time. To be honest, until I had my own babies I was a bit afraid of the whole idea of nursing. Even the word breastfeeding made me feel awkward.
Now I'm pretty much completely opposite and have to remind myself to be a bit more 'covered' while nursing. Once you've nursed your baby in the car, dressing rooms (ahem..Target) ,airplanes, airports, theme parks, rides at theme parks (usually dark and air conditioned so that's a plus) beaches, restaurants, sporting events, you name it.... you lose your sense of privacy... or lack there of, because of course baby's gotta eat when baby's gotta eat and there's no changing that!
This nursing cover by Covered Goods ( I know best name right?) has solved many a problems!
Soft as can be, breathable, and stylish. I'll be honest, sometimes my bare back and bum crack show when I sit down and pull my shirt up to feed the baby. Problem solved! It covers everything, even a wiggly, pulling baby. It can also be worn as a scarf after, covers up any spill or spit up etc!
I have washed it so many times and it still looks brand new.
