  • 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...

  • The Breastfeeding Cover-Up

    This is not a post about nursing covers. This is a post about breastfeeding support. It is about those who consider themselves breastfeeding supporters, what a breastfeeding mother considers supportive and the often huge disparity between the two. I married into this company (my husband and his sister started Momzelle together, just as he and I started dating).  I started working in the company when I was pregnant with my first child.  I have the distinct privilege of being immersed in the breastfeeding community for my job, and it has made an incredible impact on my personal life.  I am so proud to have helped build a community on our Facebook page that is interactive, informative, entertaining and supportive.  I love getting a conversation going.  Lately, though...
  • International Day to Normalize Breastfeeding

    June 27th 2015 International Day to Normalize Breastfeeding A very exciting and important declaration by the mayor of San Diego will be made on June 27th.  Thanks to the hard work of Vanessa Simmons, a photographer and founder of NormalizeBreastfeeding.Org, it is hopeful that many other cities will follow suit and declare this day the International Day to Normalize Breastfeeding.  This day is a proclamation of support and awareness to breastfeeding mothers everywhere. Normalizing breastfeeding is so important! Normalizing breastfeeding is so important because, even though it is natural, it is not always easy.  We often have many obstacles to overcome, such as poor latch, sore nipples, and mastitis; we shouldn't also have to worry about acceptance and ignorance out in public! I hope this...
  • 10 tips for Breastfeeding a Newborn

    Top 10 Ways to Help Breastfeeding Start Smoothly 1. Prepare before the birth of your baby You would not give birth without being informed, without seeking answers to your questions, right? Well, I encourage you to do the same for breastfeeding! Go find the answers to your questions. Sort out the overwhelming information with an educated professional.  Discuss your motivations, your fears, problems and solutions with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). 2. Give birth with the least interventions possible Breastfeeding is the physiological result of pregnancy and childbirth. Each step influences the next. Each intervention during labor interferes with the physiological hormone secretion, which disrupts hormone secretion for lactation and the reflexes of the newborn for breastfeeding. The presence of a doula can help manage the pain...
  • Breastfeeding Slows Us Down...In the Best Way Possible

    Breastfeeding Past Infancy As my son quickly approaches his fifteenth month breastfeeding, I am suddenly very aware of how active he is!  He isn't just walking, he is running to keep up with his older sister.  He is squirming to get out of my arms to play with toys.  He is constantly banging on the pantry door, looking for a snack.  But no matter how busy we get, our little family of four, when my son wants milk, he and I get to slow down.  We curl up on the couch and stop everything else.  We have eye contact and a few smiles.  I am really trying to capture these moments lately, as they seem to be fewer and farther between. The first few...
