There are so many different breast feeding positions and variations one could loose count. One of our favorite positions is the Biological Nurturing Position demonstrated by our friend, Lindsey Shipley, RN, IBCLC of Lactation Link.

Biological Nuturing

The BIOLOGICAL NURTURING position was developed by Suzanne Colson. It's a very natural and comfortable position for both mom and baby. It is also a great option for women with overactive letdown, as it slows the flow of milk. It is a reclined back position that can be done on a couch, recliner, or bed.

How to:

-Use cushions or pillows to ensure comfort and support in a semi-reclined position

-Lay infant/child parallel to your body, tummy-to-tummy

-Infant's legs straddle Mom's leg on the feeding side

-Infant's hands frame the breast, one on each side

-Infant chin buried in the breast

-Ensure a deep latch


Did this position work for you?

If not, try the Cradle Hold, the Football Hold, or the Side Lying Position. 

Our founder Elisa just had a sweet baby girl!  One of our favorite companies, NüRoo, sent her the NüRoo Pocket to use.  The pocket is a babywearing shirt that offers full coverage and mobility for moms practicing Skin-to-Skin Contact with their newborns and that doubles as a hands free newborn carrier. 

From Elisa: Wearing Naomi in the pocket was really special bonding time. I loved putting her in when she was straight from the bath and she loved warming up skin to skin. Looking down at her I felt like I was getting a special glimpse into how she looked, all curled up and cozy, before she was born. The NüRoo was easy to use and get her comfortable in, and I didn't have problems with her slipping. It help her up high and kissable.

We loved the NüRoo Pocket!

Save Money While Trying to Conceive


When you're trying to conceive you become slightly OCD with pregnancy tests. You have to be sure right? But this testing can end up costing you A LOT of MONEY! The E.P.T.test can end up costing you up to $13 a pop which adds up pretty fast. But did you know that those dollar store tests are just as accurate?

Save Money While Trying to Conceive

According to this news article, there is no difference in the accuracy of the test, as long as you are doing it correctly. Plus dollar store tests tend to be more sensitive than some of the more expensive brands.  So if you are looking to conceive and find yourself taking tests multiple times a week, go for the dollar store tests to save a little money!

If you want to save even more money, check out these ClinicalGuard Pregnancy Test Strips, 20-count tests which are only $5.95 with free shipping!  We haven't tried them but they get great reviews!

 Beach days are fun, but the sand that's left behind makes for quite a sticky mess. Here's a trick we learned a while back that will make your beach days so much more enjoyable.

If you or your kids have dry sand stuck on feet, hands, bums (so hard to change a diaper at the beach), etc., try this:

1- Cover the spots with baby powder. The powder should absorb any moisture remaining on your skin.

2- Watch the sticky sand fall away.

You're welcome!

When The Spoiled Mama offered to send a Mini Spa Kit for review, we couldn't pass it up! Pregnant Mamas deserved to be pampered and this kit definitely does the trick!

The kit includes the following:

Tummy Butter for Stretch Marks - This belly butter is so creamy full of moisture plus it is totally natural! While a few uses can't determine its effectiveness for treating and preventing stretch marks, it definitely locks in moisture and took away the itchiness.

Bump Gloss Stretch Mark Oil - After 3 kids my bumps have already left a few marks, but the stretch mark oil feels amazing on my itchy every stretching belly. It's lightly scented with lavender and smells subtle but so great.

Cucumber & Aloe Leg Gel for Swollen Legs & Feet-This smells incredible and feels so soothing on my ankles, it definitely offers pregnancy swollen feet relief.

Luxe-Mama Calming Vanilla Body Wash-This pregnancy safe body wash is perfect! It has a light fragrance but is powerful enough to leave you smelling refreshed and clean.

Between the many mamas of Undercover Mama (and the many children) we have tried a lot of baby products and found what works and what doesn't. There are many nursing pillow choices out there but we have definitely found the best, the My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow. It perfectly positions baby for latch-on and makes nursing so comfortable for mama.  Different than any other nursing pillow, It goes all the way around your body and buckles in the back which gives so much more support.  Plus it provides a much more comfortable surface for baby to nurse on. We love the back rest and the arm and elbow rests which make it easier to relax while nursing.  Plus it helps with posture as so often us mamas tend to bend down or hunch over while nursing which creates so much tension.  

We have partnered with My Brest Friend to give away a Nursing Pillow and an Undercover Mama.

For breastfeeding mamas, hydration is essential.  You should drink frequently, preferably before you feel thirsty.  We recommend drinking 8 oz. of water every time you nurse.


Here are 3 tips to help keep you hydrated:

1-Find a favorite water bottle.  Our current fav is a Hydroflask Water Bottle.  We love it because it can keep your drinks cold for up to 24 hours plus it can have a flip lid or a straw and the color choices are pretty cute too!


2-Keep a pitcher full of water in the fridge.  Start with it full and empty it each day. You can even make it more interesting with some infused water!  Here is one of our favorite recipes from Simple Vegan Blog.
 
3-Don't overdo it! Drinking more water than you need won’t produce more milk and drinking too much can actually diminish milk production.

While there is little that can be done to prevent the onset of sciatica during pregnancy, there are some things that can help ease the discomfort:

1- A Pregnancy Girdle- These help lift the abdomen, while supporting the back. This brings ecreased pelvic and groin pain.  You can snag one of our favorites here or check with your doctor to see if they provide one free of charge.

 2- A Firm Mattress and Pillow- Sleep on a firm mattress with plenty of back support, and place a pillow between your legs to help keep the pelvis in better alignment and take some pressure off the sciatic nerve.  This is one of our favorite pregnancy pillows.

3- Yoga Exercises- Exercise can be great to help bring relief for Sciatica Pain.  Check out this youtube video here:

Sometimes us moms need a little help boosting our supply.  Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the leaves, stems, seeds, bark, roots, and flowers of plants and have a wide range of physical and emotional uses including supporting a breastfeeding mother. DōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) essential oils work great!  Our friend Melissa is a dōTERRA consultant and has shared some of these incredible tips with us about Oils That Assist Lactation.

We recommend you consult a licensed aromatherapist for oil use to make sure what and how you are using is safe and effective for you and your needs.

BENEFITS:

-Fennel and Clary Sage help promote initial milk production

-Basil and Geranium promote milk production

-Peppermint promotes a possible decrease in milk production

TO USE:

TOPICALLY:  place 2 TBSP of a carrier oil, like dōTERRA's Fractionated Coconut Oil, in a glass bowl or container and add 10 - 15 drops of your chosen oil(s). Apply a small amount of the mixture on your breasts, avoiding the nipples.

Note: If you become pregnant, or have any concerns about using essential oils while breastfeeding, please consult your physician.

Melissa is a stay at home mom of two amazing little boys - a 17 month old nursling and a 3 year old toddler. dōTERRA essential oils have been a blessing for her and her family, and she truly enjoys sharing what she has learned with others, so that they too can experience the amazing benefits of these essential oils.
