Andrea's Essentials for Nursing

If I'm prepared (and take care of myself!) when I'm nursing, I always enjoy it more. Here are six of my favorite essentials I've used while nursing this time around:
  1. STORQ Caftan — This 100% cotton caftan is flowy and soft, and can be worn before, during, and after pregnancy. It's so forgiving to my postpartum body, and is really comfortable to nurse in. The buttons down the front are perfect, and it's chic enough I can leave the house in it. 
  2. Tubby Todd MAMA Nursing Salve — Our nursing salve has been FANTASTIC for nursing James! Even though he's my third baby, the first few weeks of nursing are just as tender as I remember with my other two. This nursing salve is a super pure-grade, hypoallergenic salve that I feel completely safe using before, during, and after nursing.
  3. Munchkin LATCH Nursing Pads — Remember how I raved about these before? They're still my favorite nursing pads. I promise you'll love them!
  4. Nova Granola — This is my favorite snack that I keep all to myself while nursing. :) I eat it by the handful, or with greek yogurt, and it gives me a healthy boost of energy (and calories!) that I need to keep my supply strong.
  5. Covered Goods Nursing Cover — This is my favorite nursing cover; it stretches just right, and is versatile enough that I also use it as a carseat cover for James. It was fantastic for nursing on our plane trip to NY last week, and provides plenty of coverage so we didn't have a nip-slip.
  6. Tubby Todd MAMA Freshening Spray — This spray works wonders to neutralize and deodorize that "I just nursed" smell, and any spit-up you may receive afterward. ;) I often keep this by my keys so I can freshen up right before we head out the door.

Tubby Todd Essentials for Your Hospital Bag

Mama, you and I both know hospital bag space is a premium! There's a lot to pack for your baby's delivery and only so much room in your overnight bag. Space is limited, and there are only so many bags your husband can carry from the car into your birthing center without complaining too much. ;)

So we'll forgive you for not packing your entire collection of Tubby Todd products, even though we know you wanted to. And instead, we've rounded up our top four most essential Tubby Todd products to bring to the hospital:

Andrea's Essentials for Traveling with Baby

Recently we've packed up the minivan and hit the road with all three kids in tow! Traveling with a young baby is really awesome and really difficult; they'll still sleep anywhere, but they also need the most attention! Here are my favorite essentials to make traveling with your baby easier:
