Ep. 50 - Nursing - the Good, the Bad, and let's be honest, the UGLY
Hey everybody! It's our 50th episode!!! We can't believe it! (Which means, we are about to hit our FIRST birthday! Aaahhhh!) For our 50th, we thought we'd talk boobies. Ha. Just kidding. But we are talking about breastfeeding. And this is a NO-JUDGEMENT zone, girls, so if you didn't nurse your babies, we aren't about to tell you should have. It's just another conversation we have planned to have around our table!
In this episode, we mentioned a bunch of different helpful products for breastfeeding. Courtney used the Medela Contact Nipple Shield with both her girls. Jennifer discovered the Medela Supplemental Nursing System, which was really helpful with her jaundice-babies. Courtney liked the NUK Expressive Double Electric Breast Pump, and both of us used the Avent Washable Nursing Pads. We also talked about the Bravado! Designs Women's Maternity Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra and Third Love's Nursing Bra. (Yay! We love Third Love!)
We also mentioned the hilarious response this woman had when told to cover up while breastfeeding.
From our "I'm Totally Into..." segment:
Courtney is totally into Bravery Magazine. Y'all check out this magazine, AND check out the ladies of Bravery Magazine. They're doing a really great thing here. The 4th issue, featuring Temple Grandin, is being released TODAAAYYYY! And here's the Temple Grandin movie Courtney mentioned.
And..... ONE LAST THING! We are changing how we do books as we head into our second year! We want our book episodes to have more of a book club feel, so we will be announcing ahead of time the book that is next on the list! On October 8th, we will be discussing the book, Tell Me More by Kelly Corrigan. So, click on that link to purchase the book, and get to reading! We are SO EXCITED to read this with you!
Have a great week, mamas! (And a fun and safe Labor Day coming up! :))
