One of the most inconvenient things about transitioning a breastfed baby to a bottle, whether it be to pumped milk or formula, is getting the milk to the correct temperature. What if I told you there was a solution that would make your life easier both at home or out and about.
Pumping and more specifically exclusively pumping is hard work. Pumping, washing, transferring milk, freezing, thawing, and rotating your stash takes a lot of time and effort. Enter the Kiinde Twist.
The Kiinde Twist™ feeding system allows you to directly pump from ANY pump into breastmilk storage pouches with leak-proof, twist-locking caps. You can then label, organize, store, warm, and feed from that same pouch - without ever having to transfer precious breast milk from bottles to bags.
You can feed directly from Kiinde Twist Pouches™ using the Kiinde Squeeze™ natural feeding bottle, eliminating the need to transfer milk from bottles to bags and back again! Just snap the pouch directly into the Squeeze natural feeding bottle, squeeze the air out of the pouch, and pop the Active-Latch™ nipple on top!
Our Favorite Thing About the Kiinde Twist?
Kiinde products are recyclable and are free of BPA, phthalates, and PVC. It is safer and more sanitary than regular breast pumping and storage systems. And the best part of all?
You won't waste a drop of precious breast milk!
Transitioning a breastfed baby to a bottle can be difficult. Every baby is different and what works for some may not work for others. While researching the best transition bottle for breastfeeding, we came upon Mimijumi. The nipple mimics a woman’s breast in shape, colour and texture and the manufacturers have designed it this way to replicate the look and feel of a mother’s breast. The mimijumi bottle tries to recreate the natural way a baby feeds by requiring the infant to actually latch before milk is released. The bottle is also free of BPA and phthalates and it is easy to clean!
Our Favorite Thing About the Mimijumi?
Aside from the fact that it is one of the only bottles that attempts to mimic a women's breast, one of the best features for pumping mamas is that the opening is large so there is no missing a small opening and crying over spilled breastmilk!
While we can't speak for every mama or every baby, if you are desperately seeking a transition bottle and have had no luck, you should give Mimijumi a try!
Whether you pump occasionally or are an exclusive pumper, we think what you are doing is amazing!
Pumping is hard work. Pumping takes dedication.
To celebrate all the pumping mamas out there, we are launching Pump It Up. For the next two weeks we will be posting pumping tips, sharing our favorite pumping products, and offering encouragement, support and a little humor to all the pumping mamas out there! And of course, what's a celebration without a HUGE Giveaway?!
We love moms! As Mother's Day approaches we wanted to be sure to celebrate moms and all they do with a special giveaway "All About Mom!"

Bravado is celebrating moms too! They have launched a new campaign called #LittleVictories. Inspired by breastfeeding moms, #LittleVictories are important and this campaign focuses on capturing and highlighting new moms' accomplishments ("little victories") throughout their challenging period of nursing and caring for a newborn.
After a busy day away from home, the last things you want to worry about are "an uncooperative cot and a fussy tot." The Nuna Sena has zigzag leg design–pop open easily into a soft, sturdy dreamland, and then refold with just one hand for a quick getaway the next morning.

Undercover Mama presents, Mom Moments:
The Great Cloth Diaper Change Guinness World Records Diaper Changing Challenge is April 26th and Undercover Mama is a proud sponsor! We love giveaways so to celebrate, we are hosting cloth diaper giveaways all month long!
We are kicking off our celebration with Buttons Diapers. They sent us a diaper to test and we loved it! Buttons Diapers sells diaper covers made of sturdy and well constructed material. The double leg gussets were wonderful! We had no leaks and it didn't seem too tight on our cute baby's chubby thighs. The 2 in 1 system is amazing, it is so nice not to need a new cover for every change like the pocket diapers. We give Buttons Cloth Diapers our Undercover Mama seal of approval.
Enter to win a Buttons Cloth Diaper prize pack that includes: 5 diaper covers, 5 diaper inserts, and a large wet bag! The winner may choose colors and sizes.
Of all the items we moms at Undercover Mama love, a wet bag is definitely one of them. Logan and Lenora make waterproof, washable, ecochic, quality constructed bags.
We absolutely love the Wet+Dry Diaper Clutch. It can be used to carry either cloth or disposable diapers and wipes. As nursing mamas we have also found it useful to carry breast pads and nipple cream. Soggy pads go in the wet pocket, new clean pads in the dry pocket along with creams, nipple shield, or whatever else you might be using at the moment. We love the darling designs and quality construction of Logan and Lenora bags and give it the Undercover Mama seal of approval.
