  • More breastfeeding on TV!

    I was very lucky to be invited to the Daytime Toronto show on Rogers TV on Tuesday September 28th. Two wonderful moms were with me and demonstrated how the Momzelle nursing tops work. One of them even breastfed on TV! Cute moms, cute babies, cute clothes: that's the life. Enjoy watching!
  • Breastfeeding Quote of the day

    Like. Like. Like. I wish I could be the one patting every breastfeeding mom on the back every time they nurse! It is so comforting to know that there are others to comfort and support you when you need it. "In some cultures it is considered a child's birthright to be nursed until the age of two. It is believed all your sins are forgiven when you nurse your baby, and an angel stands behind you and pats you on the back when you are done. I like to think of an angel standing behind me every time I nurse. It is a very comforting thought when things aren't going well. If you can't get support from your family, at least the angels are behind...
  • Breastfeeding Challenge 2010

    Do you know what the breastfeeding challenge is? It is a friendly competition between cities to see who can get the most babies latched on at the breast at the same time, on the same day. Created by the Quintessence Foundation, the purpose of the challenge is to celebrate breastfeeding and get people together. Sounds pretty good to me. Last year, the challenge happened at 246 different sites in 21 countries. Over 4000 children were breastfed at the same time! Breastfeeding Challenge in Toronto (Dundas/Dufferin) I'm happy to announce that Momzelle is organizing a breastfeeding challenge in Toronto on Saturday October 2nd 2010. Come join us at the Lula Lounge (1585 Dundas Street West, for directions) to celebrate breastfeeding. The doors will open...
  • New breastfeeding stats are out for the US

    The US Breastfeeding report card is out for 2010. Stats fanatics, have fun  reading it! Look at what your own state can do to improve its breastfeeding rates. I find it quite impressive to see the wide variation between the states. How did yours do? Taken straight from the Centre for Disease and Prevention Centre's website, here is the report: Breastfeeding Report Card—United States, 2010 Background Improving the health of mothers and their children is a primary goal of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Protecting, promoting, and supporting breastfeeding, with its many known benefits for infants, children, and mothers, is a key strategy toward this goal. There are many different ways that communities support mothers and babies to breastfeed, and everyone...
  • The new styles are in!

    Hurry, buy the hoody before there's none left! I think I've already read 40 comments about the hoody on the Momzelle Facebook page. Moms just seem to love it so much, it's not funny. True enough, last year we sold them all out very quickly and we only received positive comments. We are on for a second round! This Fall/Winter, we have some very nice long sleeve styles available: the turtleneck, the hoody, the tunic, the warm v-neck, and the warm criss-cross. Have a look at some of the wonderful pictures that were taken last week: For a "behind the scenes" album, have a look here. Enjoy!
