  • 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...

  • Baby Show Season is here at Momzelle

    Fall has arrived It is officially Fall, which means two things around the Momzelle office; we get to watch our awesome hoodies start flying off the shelves and some of us get to earn some travel miles as the trade show schedule picks up the pace.  It won't really hit full speed until Spring, but this Fall I am manning the booth at three different Baby Shows within a month. Now that my son is nearly two, I have taken on a bigger role in the office.  I am now a wholesale accounts manager, as well as continuing the social media and blogging.  It's really exciting to take Momzelle directly to the customers at Baby and Tot shows, but now I also get to meet local...
  • Online Breastfeeding Support to Real life Friendship

    The following is a guest post from a Momzelle Mama, Melissa Carey. I want to tell you a story of how encouraging a breastfeeding mom, even a stranger, can turn into a marvelous, meaningful friendship. Read on to find out how this came to be for me. I live in Midwest U.S.A. and am married to a supportive husband and have an adoptive child, two biological children and one more on the way in a matter of weeks. We consider ourselves a pretty crunchy/hippie family. So, from the beginning of parenthood, I knew I would breastfeed. My breastfeeding journey has been relatively easy compared with some women’s, but it has also been harder than it should have been. I believe this is because we...
