  • 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...
  • Romance for the New Mom - Valentine's Day Re-Invented

    The top five romantic gestures a new mom deserves this Valentine's Day (and any other day of the year, too!) Ok, partners, your wife/girlfriend/spouse has grown, birthed and nourished a baby recently, here are a few ways to let her know you see her and appreciate her in this foggy, soggy and sleepy phase of life we call parenting little ones: 1 - Take the kids out. Nothing says I love you like alone time!  Give Mama a chance to shower with the door closed, read a book without pictures in it and eat chocolate outside of the closet :)  Self-care is an often overlooked and oh so important part of motherhood, encourage it! 2 - Date Night, new mom style ...
  • My Breastfeeding Journey - guest post

    The following is a guest post from Momzelle mama, Natalie.  We always love to hear and share real life breastfeeding journeys.  If you want to share yours, please email info@momzelle.com. I took a class at my local hospital and researched online about breastfeeding while I was still pregnant. I studied the information and tried to prepare myself. But I really had no idea what a complete lifestyle change it would be, in addition to adjusting to being a new parent. I did not expect how it felt to have my chest exposed more often than not.  Because my husband has been deployed with the military overseas since my son was a month old, I have relied on help from my mother (who had breastfed me and my brother) and support from family and friends. I feel like I have...

  • Top Ten Tips for Breastfeeding Mothers this Holiday Season!

    I love the holidays!  Fabulous food, warm drinks, cheerful music, crazy shoppers and lots of time with family and friends.  In-laws, extended family, travelling, busy schedules and unsolicited advice can make these joyful occasions quite stressful for a breastfeeding mother. Here are a few tips to keep confident and comfortable this holiday season: 1. Delegate! Make sure you enlist your family to help, help, help.  Cooking food, cleaning, keeping older children busy, running errands, etc are all things that can easily be done by someone other than you.  Your priority is feeding baby and taking advantage of the extra pairs of hands :) 2. Keep hydrated.  Breastfeeding can be a lot of work for your body.  It is easy to forget the simple...
  • Momzelle - Lights, Camera, Action!

    Breastfeeding in the news It's been an exciting fall here at Momzelle.  We travelled thousands of miles on the trade show routes, grew our retailer family exponentially and made a huge splash with our latest collection of nursing wear (we just couldn't keep those hoodies on the shelf!) To cap off the excitement, our designer, Camille, presented Momzelle on a local Montreal tv show. Camille did a great job! Unfortunately, this channel doesn't put episodes on their website or youtube!!  We don't have a clip of the awesomeness...but we are so happy that breastfeeding (and our little company!) is being talked about (positively :) ) in mainstream media.

  • Momzelle - Proud New Member of the C.A.R.E. Code Alliance

    Our mission at Momzelle is to help mother's breastfeed anywhere with confidence and in comfort.  We seek to 'normalize' the most natural thing because our society, unfortunately, has done a pretty good job of stigmatizing it!  I love when we get to collaborate with organizations and advocates (like The Leaky Boob and the Badass Breastfeeder) to help spread the message. A look at the reach of Best for Babes in 2015 Our latest partnership is with the Best for Babes Foundation.  If you are not familiar with them, you should be!  :)  They do amazing work to support, encourage, represent and inspire breastfeeding mothers.  They have a Nursing In Public Harassment Hotline, tons of resources, science-based research, celebrity spokes-moms and more! ...
  • The Best Breastfeeding Advice from Breastfeeding Mothers

    The Best Breastfeeding Advice We did a flash giveaway on our Facebook page this week and, to enter, we asked mama's to tell us the best piece of breastfeeding advice they have ever received.  There was only one lucky winner, but a marvelous thread of over 80 pearls of wisdom, words of encouragement and supportive advice was created for all! Here are some of my favourites: "don't give up on your hardest day" "The best advice I ever got was to talk to other moms. There is a huge range of "normal" and so many different tips and techniques and talking to other moms not only gave me new ideas, it helped me feel empowered". "The best advice I ever got, surprisingly...
