I’m excited to be featured as a guest contributor over on Ergobaby’s blog today. The post is titled, “Happy Mommy, Happy Baby. Top 2 ‘Must-dos’ with Ergobaby”. Wanted to share a sneak peek with you.
Skin-to-skin & Positioning
In the post today, I’m discussing skin-to-skin contact and positioning. These are such important parts of building a successful breastfeeding relationship. The great thing about breastfeeding is it cuts down on the amount of “things” we require to feed or care for our baby. So when I recommend something, it is typical something I’ve used myself as a Mom and something I know to be very useful for many other breastfeeding Moms. I used the Ergobaby carrier with my kids and now I use the Ergobaby nursing pillow in my office appts. My clients love it because it has a unique curve design that acts as a wedge and helps keep baby facing Mom in the tummy-to-tummy position.
Office essentials for my clients
Here is a little look at a few essentials I keep stocked in my cabinet for office consultations. The Ergo Baby nursing pillow, Undercover Mama nursing tanks, and the ‘Supermom’ nursing bra from Simple Wishes to name a few! I have discount codes on these items in my Favorites section.
I hope you guys enjoy the full post over on Ergobaby. Let me know what you think today on instagram and enter to win a baby carrier and nursing pillow from Ergobaby!
