Breastfeeding Isn’t Always Easy But Humble-Bee Can Help
As many of you know my life isn’t the same as it once was and that is ok. I get all of the “perks” of living in the midlife stage of things but one of the most precious things about that time is becoming a Grandma. Last October Liz & Austin welcomed their first little one into their lives, and let me tell you, that little guy stole my heart from the get-go. Since we haven’t been putting him out on lots of social media (he’s out there, just not his full name and so forth, but we call him Tater.) It’s a nickname of course that his Grandpa Brady came up with and it’s just kind of stuck for everyone. In fact, I think he knew “Tater” before he knew his first name.
I know, I know, Heidi get to the point. I am I promise! One of the things that Liz decided to do was to breastfeed Tater and her journey hasn’t been easy. She’s seen Doctors, Lactation Consultants, used donor milk (that’s a whole new blog post), and tried almost every pump on the market. But in early June, Liz and Tater were at the Dentist and the dentist noticed that he had a tongue tie issue. Not his tongue, but part of his upper lip, and was going to have to have a triangle put into his mouth to correct it. The prepping time actually took more time than the actual “surgery”. As soon as it was over his latch drastically improved and he was nursing for 20+ minutes. That’s never happened, but we were all relieved that it was a simple procedure.
He’s on the mend and of course, has some bruising, but our little guy isn’t letting that hold him back. While Liz and Tater are having to “relearn” some breastfeeding techniques, they are both benefitting from the quality time breastfeeding allows. Since she is all about breastfeeding I partnered with Humble-Bee so they could learn about a new innovative product that helps ease the hunching over aspect of breastfeeding.
Say Hello to Nurse-Sling
This nurse-sling allows women to sit or stand upright and breastfeed without having to hunch over.
The Nurse-Sling is patent-pending, a revolutionary nursing pillow that provides the best comfort and the most ergonomic support in an easily portable design.
The Nurse-Sling from Humble-Bee not only supports healthy nursing posture, but mothers can also position baby for better digestion.
The Nurse-Sling keeps arms relaxed to help reduce strain.
Must have Nursing Items
And is perfect for feeding on the go, baby can nurse anywhere and with privacy! (Unless you are Tater and he doesn’t want to be covered, so using the Nurse-Sling is a bit of a challenge, but he’s learning to love it.)
In addition to providing superior nursing support at home and on the go, after the baby has moved beyond breastfeeding, it turns into a sling bag that both mommy and daddy can use for a lifetime. GENIUS!!! I love that it has multiple functions and that makes it worth its weight in gold.
At only $39.98 it makes the perfect baby shower gift for all new expecting moms or a hospital gift that is unique and functional too!
