Most days, especially in the summer, I just can’t handle the thought of putting jeans on. Or any type of pant that require me to suck in and button them up. Enter the jogger. They are basically sweatpants, but they are much more socially acceptable to wear out in public. So pair your favorite joggers with our new black nursing shirt and some slider sandals for an easy and ultra comfortable look.

Now you’ve got no excuse not to stay trendy and chic, even while nursing your sweet little one. Just keep your favorite UCM pieces in the rotation and you can’t go wrong.

 

I wanted to share some of my favorite baby products that I find myself loving & using daily! It's been 10 years since my first baby so it's fun to see all the new things that come out each baby I have.
 
 
 
#1. Brazil's best kept secret- Natura Mamãe e Bebê perfume. You can get it on Amazon and it smells like a dreeeeam! I have used this with all my babies cheirosos!
 
#2. The Woombie- this zippy swaddler is made of a stretchy jersey knit so baby can wiggle his arms up if he wants to but keeps him nice and snug. I have loved this for nighttime with a newborn.
 
#3. The Joonie- My own sister invented this! So you may think I'm biased (of course I am!) but it really is the car seat cover of my dreams! It keeps the wind and rain and little hands out and I constantly find myself thinking how much I love it! Thanks sista! Check it out @gojoonie
 
#4 White noise app- we use this at night with Lily on an ocean sound and it cuts out the noise from what's going on in our little house. Also, Max loves the rain sound and it calms him down and keeps him calm & sleeping at night. I love how it's on my phone so it's always close.
 
#5. Nose Frida- I was a bit skeptical about sucking my kid's snot out through a tube but my friend gave me this and it is seriously the best! Way better suction than the blue bulb and I use it for my toddler too!
 
#6. Undercover Mama nursing top- this has become a favorite part of my wardrobe because every 3 hours no matter where I am I need to be able to nurse! This top hooks to my nursing bra so everything stays in place when I lift up the top layer of the shirt. Lol. Thank goodness for nursing friendly clothes! @undercover_mama 

 
These gifts are tried & true! You really can't go wrong. 
 


 
1- This WATCH! The quality is great and you will gets compliments all the time. So simple & stylish, and waterproof! It comes in a little box that's perfect to gift.  Plus, did we mention that it's only $14.99?!
 
 
 
2- These PANTS! $88 Kind of spendy but worth it. Lightweight and flattering, you'll want them in every color! I have the same style pants from 3 other brands and the Albion Jetsetters are the best. They pair perfectly with the Undercover Mama tops!
 
 
 
3-This vacuum! $299 it's a splurge, but so worth it! I use it daily on my stairs, kitchen floor, couches and the car. This would be at the top of my list!
 

 

 

 

Let's face it, sometimes you don't want to haul around your big stroller.  Or maybe you don't have room in your trunk for you regular stroller.  Or maybe your baby is turning into a toddler and you don't need the travel system anymore.  No matter the reason, sometimes you need a really great umbrella stroller.  Here are our 4 favorites for 2017:

 

This has one of the coolest features I've ever seen in an umbrella stroller.  Baby can face you or face the world!   Plus it has a six-position recline which means it can definitely be a napping stroller.  The canopy is quite large which helps protect baby from the sun.  It handles smoothly and is one of the best umbrella style strollers out there that can also accommodate an infant.
 

This is a great lightweight stroller with a one-handed fold.  What makes this one awesome is that it also accepts graco carseats!  GENIUS!  It can also accommodate a child up to 50 pounds so you can still get a lot of use out of it.  
 

This is the most cost conscious our favorites, but it's still pretty great.   It has a 4-position recline with a 5 point safety harness, anti-shock front wheels and lockable rear wheels, and an adjustable and removable canopy with flip out sun visor
 

This umbrella stroller is amazing!  It's only 7.5 pounds!  It has ergonomic, anti-microbial handles, a large-ish sunshade, a peekaboo window, a linked braking system, a large basket, a rain cover and four-wheel suspension.  It's a little pricey, but I've been a fan of the Maclaren umbrella strollers for a long time and this one doesn't disappoint.

There are a million diaper bag choices out there, but it seems that every year they get better and better.  Here's our top three favorites:
 

We are loving this new bag from PPB.  The outside is glazed cotton canvas which makes it super easy to clean.  It has coordinating packing pods called pixels and dividers called caddys that can help keep you super organized.  It is one of the most customizable bags we've seen!  And we love the fact that it can be a tote or a backpack.
 

This is a beautiful bag.  You can definitely carry this one even when you're out of the diaper bag stage.  It comes in a variety of stunning colors and has 10 pockets!  One of the best features is the fact that it opens super wide so you can easily spot anything you're looking for.  It can also be carried as a tote of backpack.
 

This is our favorite cost conscious bag!  It's a great mid-sized bag with lots of compartments and it's easy to clean which are our 2 most important features.  And it comes with complimentary stroller straps and a matching folding changing pad.  

Have you read our first post on Binge Worthy Shows to Watch While Breastfeeding?  The way we see it, new babies nurse around 8 times in a 24 hour period at 20-40 minutes per time which definitely gives you some time to binge watch.   Here's a a few more of our favorites:
 

1- The Mindy Project

Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) is a 30-something OB/GYN, working and living in New York City. In season four, Mindy finds herself struggling to balance life as a working mom.  It's a funny, lighthearted, it's okay if you don't totally pay attention kind of show.

 

2- Jane the Virgin
After being accidentally artificially inseminated with her boss’s specimen, this show takes some crazy, sometimes violent, awkward and hilarious turns.  
 

3- Call The Midwife
This might seem a little too close to home after having just given birth, but there’s something to be said for being it being relatable.  Plus, you'll be grateful for some of the more modern conveniences and medical advances.  And I love a good period drama.
 

4- House Hunters International
Tell me I'm not the only one who has been sucked into an HGTV marathon.  These episodes are like 22 minutes so if your baby nurses extra long like mine did, you can get in a few episodes each time.  I mean, look at all you can accomplish while nursing!
 
 

5- Freaks and Geeks
You guys, this is an all-star cast including baby Seth Rogan, baby Jason Segal, baby James Franco, and baby Busy Phillips.  Tragically it's only one season but it's a good story line and definitely worth the binge. 
 
 

We’ve all heard the comparison that being a mom is like being a superhero. Well, this mom was literally Wonder Woman. Her husband is amazing at creating Cosplay outfits, and she was at a Comic Convention dressed as Wonder Woman. With her 11-month old baby needing to nurse, she found a mother’s room, and began the process of undressing to nurse.

 

 Because of the way my corset fit, it was tricky to take it off so I practically had to turn him upside down to get him in a position where he could nurse. There were two other moms in the mother’s room with me and when I got him to latch I shouted,

“I AM wonder woman!”

When my son was three months old, we had to fly across the country to meet my husband where we would be stationed with the military. I hadn’t really mastered the whole nursing thing yet, so I was obviously really anxious about the whole thing. Even more so because I was told I had severely inverted nipples and I’d have to use a shield in order to keep nursing. But I was READY. I had three shields, two nursing covers, countless binkies, gripewater, and enough lanolin to last a lifetime. However, as soon as I sat down my heart sank. I was seated next to two middle aged businessmen in suits. They both had little sleeper masks, and giant head phones that were clearly meant to block out noise. Ah! I had read all about traveling with an infant, and knew that in order to make take-off and landing bearable, it was best to nurse.

As soon we had started nursing, the plane started to taxi and the noise startled my son so he jerked his head away, and the neck strap on my cover came undone. I quickly tucked my cover into my mouth to hold it up (you know this trick…all nursing moms do!). The man next to me noticed I was struggling so he offered to hold my son while I got settled. Well, my new mom hormones kicked in, and with huge tears in my eyes I said ‘Thanks so much’, and handed him over. I fixed my cover and motioned for the guy to hand him back. Then, IT happened. I still have nightmares. Just as this kind man went to hand my fussy child back to me, my cover flipped up, and my shield rolled to the floor. He and I froze, looked at each other, then at the ground. There, sitting just between his fancy shoes, was my silicone nipple shield. I'm not sure he fully understood what it was because he mumbled ‘I got it...’ and reached down.

Then I screamed ‘PLEASE DON'T! ITS A NIPPLE SHIELD!’

It was one million times louder than I intended it to be. He seemed startled, then looked down again, contemplated what I yelled, then his eyes went wide and he said ‘Yeah... you can get it’. I swear, I wanted to crawl under my seat and die.

I was always told to wash my baby's clothes before dressing them for the first time, but I never really understood the reason why. There actually is a reason, other than just making them smell fresh.  Most baby clothes are treated with a finish to ensure that they look brand new and unwrinkled when you buy them.  This can be harmful to their sensitive skin!  So wash those baby clothes!  
 
And while we are at it, here are a few other tips and tricks for tackling baby laundry that I've learned along the way.  
 

DETERGENT
 
I'm partial to Dreft, as my detergent of choice.  But any of the free and clear detergents are recommended.  These detergents contain less, or no added fragrance, which can oftentimes be the culprit in irritating sensitive baby skin.
Avoid the fabric softener — both liquid and sheets. Fabric softener can reduce the effectiveness of the flame retardency on baby pajamas and can also irritate your baby's skin.
 

 
 I was given this bar at a baby shower and was skeptical.  But this handy little bar is amazing at getting stains out. You can find it at the grocery store for super cheap and it can get out almost any laundry stain I've ever had.
 

COLOR CATCHERS
 
Let's face it, babies create a TON of laundry.  And when your an exhausted new mom in survival mode, there isn't time to separate colors and do separate loads.  Enter Color Catchers.  Color catchers are disposable sheets which can be thrown into the wash to help absorb any color dye that may leak and stain other lighter fabrics. 
 
MESH LAUNDRY BAGS
 
Baby clothes are tiny, which means they tend to get lost.  Mesh Laundry bags are a must!   These are perfect for holding baby socks, bibs, mittens, and other small things that tend to wander in the wash.

Do you ever get somewhere and realize the outfit you are wearing is not compatible with nursing?

In a nutshell, I was at my first big outing with a baby and it was a wedding. It didn’t register that I couldn’t nurse in the one-piece dress I was wearing. The wedding was completely outdoors so I had no choice but to strip down almost naked under the long tablecloth on our table to nurse my son.” Her husband found it so hilarious that he had to document the moment by taking a picture.
