Time Magazine Cover is Not an Accurate Portrayal of Nursing Moms

Jamie Lynne Grumet on the Today Show

Time magazine recently caused a stir with their provocative cover photo of pretty young mom, Jamie Lynne Grumet, shown nursing her nearly 4 year old son while he stands on a chair next to her. Although we at TummyStyle fully support nursing mothers, we don’t feel this photo accurately captures the essence of the nurturing experience of nursing your child. It appears that the photo shoot was designed elicit a shock factor to draw attention to the magazine by showing a older than average child nursing from a chair like he is drinking from a water fountain as the mom reveals her breast to the world and strikes a pose in form fitting clothes.

At TummyStyle we support breastfeeding but we do not support fueling the controversy of different parenting styles and choices regarding nursing and its duration. Breastfeeding is unquestionably a healthy choice for your baby, but we’re all on the same team here and need to support rather than divide moms on choices regarding breastfeeding and how long they choose to nurse child.

It’s hard work being a mom whether you nurse your child until kindergarten or bottle feed your baby. The support we as moms get from our spouses, families, friends and community is the “village” we need to do our very best for our children.

Reese Shows her Maternity Style in Simple Grey Maternity Dress

Reese Witherspoon is never one to disappoint in the fashion arena. So, we are not surprised that she wears her pregnancy well with each advancing month and season. Recently Reese was photographed with this casual but chic grey cotton short sleeve maternity dress which was just tight enough to hug her curves without being constricting or clingy. The dress appears to have side ruching which is a great style feature to look for in a maternity dress as it gives room for your belly to grow comfortably and flatters your bump. Also, the above the knee to mid thigh length is great for this time of the year and allows you a full range of footwear to choose from.

A solid color go-to maternity dress such as this, allows Reese to capitalize on accessorizing. She hits the perfect casual but thoughtful vibe with an artisan necklace, stacked but understated bracelets, a fabulous big leather saddlebag to protect that bump from paparazzi, simple gold hoop earrings and oversized sunglasses. Reese looks glam with a simple low rise ponytail and little or no makeup.

Get a similar look as Reese with Majamas Sleepy Dress. This simple but stylish maternity and nursing dress can be worn throughout pregnancy and beyond. It can be dressed up with footwear and accessories for any social venue. Majamas originally named it the Sleepy Dress because it has built in bust support and completely discreet nursing access. The Sleepy Dress is the perfect t 24 hour dress for a new mom to lounge in, take care of her baby, nurse, sleep and then greet well-wishers without having to change or grab a robe for modesty. The extra spandex stretch and empire cut in this everyday dress allows you to wear it comfortably for maternity as well.

Maternity Bikini Clad Tori Spelling Pregnant With Her 4th Child!

Tory Spelling recently announced that she is pregnant with their 4th child. Looking flawless and glam in a tangerine halter bikini, Tory makes motherhood and pregnancy look glam! This pregnancy comes on the heels of their 3rd child’s birth, Hattie, who was born last October. Tori, 38 , looks as if she is pregnant with her first with a beautiful baby belly (showing no stretch marks!) and staying hydrated with a cold citris drink. I must say some ladies make pregnancy look easy!

Bare your belly like Tori in pretty summer bikini, like Bellabumbum’s new Fuschia Ring Maternity Bikini. This pretty halter bikini features a silver rectangle ring across the front and adjustable ties. The matching bikini bottoms also have silver rectangle ring adornments on the sides. The bra top is padded and the fabric is super stretchy for the perfect fit and comfort to mold your changing shape.

Pregnant Woman Struck By Lightening

A pregnant woman and her unborn baby were struck by lightening a few days ago.

The woman, Kelly Lough, was getting into her husband’s car during a storm while holding her umbrella.

There was a large flash and big boom, she stated, and she felt a jolt of electricity flow down her right arm and out the left as well as her toes.

The doctors think that maybe her old pair of rubber soled shoes that she had intended to throw away were what might have saved her life by providing a bit more insulation than the pair of high heels she had intended to wear.

Ms Lough was rushed to the hospital and she, as well as her unborn baby, were found to be both perfectly healthy. The weather officials believe that Ms Lough was probably struck by one of the minor side bolt and not the main branch.

The National Weather Service puts the odds of being struck by lightening are 1 out of 775,000. Our own TummyStyle statistician places the odds of a pregnant woman being struck by lightening at 1 in 100 million!

Prego has been making this maternity swimwear for many years now and it still is a perennial favorite. Our customers continue to ask for this maternity bathing suit and we continue to please them by ordering more each year.
