Motherlove To The Resuce

Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for a review; however, my review is 100% my honest opinion.

Hi Y’all! I want to talk about something that many momma’s experience while they are breastfeeding, a drop in your milk supply. I noticed mine about two weeks ago. I went from pumping enough milk for the day for my babe down to about 17oz. My first reaction was to panic and take to Pinterest. I searched the best supplements to take for a drop in supply. That is when I came across Motherlove products. I read up about the company and found that their supplements were all made from certified organic herbs, and the reviews were fantastic.  I immediately sent an email about one of their products I saw. To my much appreciated surprise, I got a quick response asking several other questions to figure out what could attribute to my drop.

  • What are the indications that your supply has decreased?
  • How many times are you breastfeeding in a 24 hour period?
  • Have you had a good supply up until this point?
  • Are you working with a lactation consultant?
  • How old is your baby and how many ounces does she get per feeding?
  • Have you night weaned or how many hours are you going between feeds in the middle of the night?
  • Have you checked your pump parts to make sure they are working correctly?
  • Do your nipples hurt when you pump?

All of these questions that were asked helped Motherlove determine which lactation supplement was best for my situation. After I answered those questions, the lactation counselor informed me that their, More Milk Plus, was the best supplement for my drop in milk production. The day I received the pills I immediately took two, she informed me that I should see an increase within the first 24-48 hours. And thank the good Motherlove heavens above I did. I saw on average an extra ounce per pumping session.

This company has so many products to choose from and even better they have a qualified staff to help you choose the best one for you. They have 3 Certified Lactation Counselors on staff with aim to understand the root of the low milk supply issue. “We also work closely with health care professionals, such as IBCLCs, Pediatricians, OBGYNs, in hospitals and private practice settings. We feel that having this dedicated lactation training goes above and beyond and ultimately helps the mom be able to feed her baby!”- Motherlove Lactation counselor

 

They also have an abundance of pre and postnatal products, you can find them here  Motherlove. They have several products for breastfeeding, pregnancy, birth and baby!

 

I’m so grateful for companies like Motherlove, who take the time to get to know the mom before suggesting a solution. The entire time I felt like this was more than just a company trying to push products. They truly care about each mother and I will gladly purchase their products.

BootayBag

Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for a review; however, my review is 100% my honest opinion.

Ever since my daughter was born I have stopped shopping for myself. Honestly, I think I’ve bought a total of 5 new things for myself since she’s been born. The days of jumping in the car and running to the mall or store are over. However, I realized I can still stay at home and get a little something special in the mail for me every month. This is even more convenient than online shopping every month because you don’t even have to think about it, because let’s be honest we would probably forget. I’m talking about the BootayBag. Whoever invented this idea is probably my new favorite person.

You simply go to BootayBag and click on the JOIN icon at the top

You then select which style, whether you like thongs, cheeky, or mix it up, then click HOOK ME UP

 

Honestly, you could set up your monthly subscription faster than it takes your toddler to finish a story they’re telling you.

This company is beyond amazing, from the moment I placed my order until the moment I received it, I had constant contact with someone from the company. Having a mom brain, I accidently typed our address incorrectly and within an hour they messaged me stating it was changed no problem.  They even sent me a Facebook message when my package shipped! And that’s not all, after you receive your sexy little undies post an instagram picture (no, you don’t have to be in them..) and #undermatters and they will donate a $1 to the charity they chose that month. This month my hashtag helped donate $1 to the Melanoma Foundation.

 

Convience, quality, and sexy. Those are the three words I would use to desciribe BootayBag. Honestly, with our busy schedule now and days, half of us are still walking around wearing underwear form five years ago. (yeah, I’m talking to you) And for just $12/month you could get two new pairs! Also, don’t forget to check out their cute little bralettes. You can add those to your subscription too! (extra charge does apply for a bralette) Plus how can you beat $12 for 2 pairs of undies?! Go look at their website and sign up, trust me when that package arrives and you slip on those undies it will be like a whole new you.

 

 

You Know You’re A Mom…

Hi Y’all! I hope you’re having a great week so far. I came up with a list that I feel is true for almost every momma out there.

 

You’re probably a mom if:

  2. You have to heat said coffee up several times
  3. You may or may not have spit up/ milk/baby food on you at some point during the day

  9. You have more baby/kid talk during the day than adult conversations
  10. You have changed more diapers than you thought possible
  11. You have been pooped/peed on (surely this isn’t just me)
  12. Leaving the house involves 30 trips back inside because you forgot something
  13. You use snapchat filters to entertain your kid (okay, it entertains me more)
  14. You are constantly saying, “no, don’t eat that”
  15. The only time you have to sit down and read a book, the book usually involves pictures
  16. Your dinner is usually cold
  17. Your kid/baby shares their half-eaten food with you, and you eat it to show them sharing is caring
  18. You’re constantly hoping that you’re doing a good job, and your kid turns out to be a decent/caring human being

  20. You stare at your baby/kid and wonder how you got so lucky
