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?!

 -A BREAK. For a nap, or to read a book, or just to crush some candy in peace. For at least an hour. Without anyone pecking at me. -Someone to do my DISHES, or LAUNDRY, whichever is pilling up faster. Or get crazy and do both!

-A CLEAN CAR. Nothing fancy, just the crumbs, and sippy cups and granola bar wrappers cleaned out. A vacuum and wipe and a spray of Febreeze.

-MOM BOOK art. I have a book and every holiday I ask my kids to write/color/scribble something to add to my collection.

For my third baby, I had a Virtual Alphabet Wall Shower! It was a really fun idea to celebrate this baby in a special and memorable way. (Thanks Pinterest!)
 
How does an Alphabet Wall Shower work?
There was an electronic invite(Evite) sent out to close friends and family inviting them to gift a letter of the alphabet for the nursery wall. Out of town friends were also included. Each person was invited to write a little note on the back of their letter. 
 
-Mild specs were provided-i.e. avoid pastel colors, approximate size, etc
-People sign up for a letter, so first come got the first pick! (I set aside 3 letters to do myself to help balance the design)
-Start early and set a DEADLINE! This is crucial so you can get the nursery done in time. 

 
I was nervous. What if the letters don't go together? What if it doesn't look good? In the end, the total randomness worked out. The wall turned out awesome and my older kids loved it! Such a special and personal way to decorate the nursery and celebrate our baby!

The Great Cloth Diaper Change 2014 is quickly approaching!  To celebrate, we are continuing our Diaper Days Giveaways.  We can't get enough of the darling prints and amazing diapers from Planet Wise!  Enter to win a prize pack below:

It is a question all new nursing moms seem to ask: When should I nurse my baby and for how long should I nurse? The answer? 

nursing baby

EVERY BABY IS DIFFERENT!

All babies are different and every baby has his or her way of showing you they are hungry.  As you watch your baby, you will start to recognize your baby's unique hunger cues. 

Hunger Cues:  rooting for the breast, hand to mouth movements, sticking out tongue, puckering lips, sucking motions with lips, squirming, stirring, rapid eye movement under lids, and fussiness.

Length: five minutes to more than thirty minutes!  There are many factors that influence the length of a nursing session including: your let down, your milk flow, whether baby is sleepy or easily distracted, nursing position, etc.  Watch your baby to see if they are full and satisfied.  They are finished when they turn away, slow down and become uninterested.

Every nursing baby and every breastfeeding mom are different.  There is not set time or length.  Watch your baby, not the clock!
