  • Bonding with a Breastfed Baby - How Fathers Do It

    Breastfeeding is one of the most bonding parts of motherhood.  We get all the perks of extra cuddles, being a sense of comfort and that special bond with our new (and older) babies.  One of the most discouraging myths for new parents is that basically partners of a breastfeeding mom are despised by newborns and will have to wait until the toddler years to really bond with their child.  With a little effort, father's can feel close and bonded with their little ones and the new mama. We recently asked our Facebook community how their partners bonded with their newborn baby.  We had a great response.  It is so wonderful to see the different ways men share in the bond during these precious early...
  • Behind the scenes - The making of our Seamless Nursing Bra

    YIWU City - China A Visit to our Seamless Bra manufacturer Last year, we introduced our new seamless nursing bra.  With great success and a demand for more than just the sporty black and white option, we decided to order this style of bra in three new colors; beige, pink and navy with white dots.

  • Breastfeeding: Can having a doula help?

    Breastfeeding is the normal continuation of pregnancy. It is a physiological process provided by nature. Sometimes it can be difficult and ongoing support before, during and after pregnancy can be very useful. Studies have also shown that success is more likely with the support of spouses, peers and health professionals. The presence and continued support of a doula during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period also contributes to breastfeeding success. Results from a combined study * shows that the presence of a doula reduces the number of interventions and contributes holistically to improve breastfeeding. Here are some statistics:  In general, women have an easier, smoother delivery when a doula is present A 50% decrease in the rate of caesarean section A reduction of...

  • 5 Reasons to Breastfeed your Toddler

    Extended breastfeeding is often the subject of heated debates. For example, remember the Time magazine cover  showing a mother breastfeeding her 3-year-old? The story rapidly became viral, as people were calling the image shocking and abnormal. Yet, the World Health Organization recommends to breastfeed exclusively for the first 6 months and then for 2 years or longer. Here are 5 reasons why nursing beyond one year is beneficial.  1. Provides a healthy diet.  It was reported by the American Academy of Pediatrics that human milk continues to be a valuable source of nutrients in the second year of breastfeeding. In fact, the nutritional value in breast milk actually increases as your child’s matures. The Level of protein, fat and calories changes, as the toddler's needs evolve.  2...
  • Birth Affirmations - guest post

    The following is a guest post from soon-be-mama, Tanya.  We always love to hear and share real life parenting and breastfeeding journeys.  If you want to share yours, please email info@momzelle.com. I am an expecting mom and a visual artist.  I would like to share my story of using Birth Affirmations in preparation for my upcoming labour.   A few months ago I was talking to one of my girlfriends about the number of fears and worries that pregnant women deal with.  She suggested to read a book on  HypnoBirthing written by Marie Mongan. The book was very reassuring and gave practical tools how to transform fears to positive beliefs. One of the recommended tools was to listen to Birth affirmations on regular basis. Since I am...
