    My Top 3 Favorite Nursing Bra Brands

    I’ve nursed six babies. That’s countless hours that I’ve had to make sure there is easy access to milk. I think it’s pretty easy to say that investing in high quality nursing bras is important. Think about how often (if you’re nursing) you will wear one. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. With comfort and quality in mind, I’ve rounded up my all time top 3 favorite nursing bras. Each of these keep me from spilling out while remaining comfortable and breathable.

    Why I Suggest All Breastfeeding Moms Use a HAAKKAA

    If you’re about to have a baby or just had a baby and nursing, then I strongly urge you use a HAAKAA milk catcher when you’re nursing. The HAAKKAA is made for breastfeeding and pumping moms. I’ve used it with my last three babies and WOW it has really been a major perk while postpartum and wanting to start a milk supply but not wanting to pump. It is perfect for those who have baby latched to one side, and are experiencing a let down on the other side. I always attach to my other breast while nursing and then take the collected milk and store it in the freezer.…

    What Do I Do For A Living? The Answer To My Top Asked Question!

    A question I am often asked is “what do you do for a living?” This is a multifaceted answer and requires a little explanation on my part. I am a mom of five (soon to be six!) who wanted the ability to stay home with her kids but also needed to financially have it make sense to do so. I am thankful to have both. I didn’t always have both though. In fact, I struggled financially for several years before figuring it out. Those were really hard years but they’ve shaped me to have drive and the desire to love what I do for a living. My job title is…

    DipWell: my favorite salon alternative for gorgeous nails

    One thing that I absolutely love to have done is my nails. I have always loved a beautiful pop of color on my fingernails and for the longest time I used traditional nail products. From doing my own at home manicures to going to a salon, I’ve learned a lot about what’s in traditional nail polishes and dip powders and because of that I decided to look and find a non-toxic option. After my search I found several brands that I tried myself. Some I didn’t love so much and others I absolutely adore. Here are the ones that we use in our household: As much as I love painting…
