Baby breastfeeding with pillow

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.
