Nursing pajama sets are always a popular choice as gifts. The Olian Maternity Green Leaf Nursing Pajamas set is a 4 piece one and includes pants, cami top, robe and baby sleeper.
The cami top includes a snap on the strap for easy drop down access. It’s great for after having your baby at the hospital or just sleeping in the comfort of your own bed. Olian Maternity has been making nursing pajamas for years and knows what the post-partum woman needs.
The green leaf pattern is unique and certainly a break from the standard fare of pinks and blues. It is made from 100% cotton and comes in sizes small to XL. At $104 it is an affordable gift for yourself or that special pregnant friend who is about to have her baby!
New for this season is the Japanese Weekend Birdie Nursing Dress. It’s part of JW’s during and after (D&A) line of maternity and nursing clothes. The new pattern is certainly colorful and may remind you of a Miro painting! The prominent red lines are contrasted against the blues and blacks.
This maternity and nursing dress offers discrete nursing ability by pulling to the side. The fabric is a stretchy polyester rayon that is also slow to wrinkle. Japanese Weekend has always been a favorite of nursing women with their choice of fabrics and cuts which aid for breastfeeding your baby.
It comes in sizes XS to XL and retails for $82.00. We expect this dress to sell out quickly!
What can be cuter for mom and her new baby than a matching nursing pajama set with matching baby sleeper and hat!
The Olian Maternity 5 Piece Floral Pajama Set always makes a wonderful gift or maybe just for yourself and baby. The pajama pants, sleeveless top, and robe and covered in a beautiful floral pattern. The robe is trimmed in pink trim which matches the baby’s hat.
Take it to the hospital or use it at home for that wonderful first picture. This nursing pajama set is made from cotton and is a only $108 for the set.
Nursing Bra Tank by Bravado
I just found these really cool breastfeeding hospital crib cards from the CDC.
There is a boy breastfeeding card and a girl breastfeeding card, but they say exactly the same thing. Just the colors are different.
They point out the advantages of breastfeeding such as less chances of being overweight, fewer ear infections, less chance of diabetes, among others. They also give you the hunger cues such as hands in mouth, searching from side to side, stretching and lastly crying (which means you are late!).
The intent is for the hosiptals to put them on the cribs but you can always print one out and put it there to remind the nurses you are breastfeeding.
The weather is starting to warm up and it’s time to get that one essential item for the nursing mom: The Bravado Nursing Bra Tank.
This iconic piece of nursing clothes is a must have. Ranging in size from 32 D/E up to 40 F/G it can be warn alone or as a great layering piece under a blouse. It provides the support you need when nursing without compromising easy access.
With a ton of different colors and the quality of Bravado, your are sure to find at least one that works with your wardrobe. In addition to the great colors is the fact that it is made from cotton and will feel cool and comfortable all day! This really is the Essential Nursing Bra Tank!

Every expecting and new mom wants to be comfortable during and after pregnancy, and having that perfect loungewear outfit is a must.

Many celebrities, including Halle Berry, Milla Jojovich, Alicia Keys, and Jessica Simpson are huge fans of BelaBumBum’s stylish and comfortable designs, and we are sure you will love them just as much.
Made of superb material, BelaBumBum’s loungewear is always incredibly soft and feel great against one’s skin. For the perfect loungewear set, try the Ariel Lacey Nursing/Maternity Pajamas. The super soft Pima cotton top and bottoms are trimmed with delicate lace so one is sure to look as good as one feels.

Wear it all night to sleep in as well as during the day when one just wants something comfy and cute to lounge in. Another BelaBumBum favorite is the Lotus Nursing Chemise.

It has plenty of stretch and room to be worn during pregnancy and has easy to use nursing clips for postpartum wear.

If you are looking for one more reason to breastfeed your baby, consider the latest research on the link between breastfeeding and lower asthma rates in children. According to two new research reports, breastfeeding increases lung volume which makes babies and children less susceptible to get asthma.
Also, this new research found that even mothers who were asthmatic still benefited their children by breastfeeding them and thus increasing their lung volume. In the past it was thought that only asthma-free moms should breastfeed. This research shows that the babies benefited from breastfeeding whether or not the mom had asthma. (It’s suspected that the babies suckling activity when breastfeeding increases it’s lung power).
Even more significantly, these studies showed that the longer the mother exclusively breastfeed their baby, the less risk the child had of getting asthma or breathing related problems. A team led by Karen Silvers with data on more than 1000 kids found that each additional month of exclusive breastfeeding was tied to a nine percentage drop in asthma risk.
The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding exclusively (with no formula) for the first six months of the child’s life then to continue to breastfeed (as solids are introduced) for two years or longer.
So, here’s some more reasons to breastfeed your child (particularly exclusively breastfeeding them for the first 6 months of life). Your child will reap the benefits for a lifetime.

Since announcing her pregnancy recently, the gorgeous Alessandra Ambrosio has not slowed down. She has walked in two lingerie fashion shows, proudly showing off her baby bump for the world to see. Due in late June, this super model mama looks stunning. Although the last thing I want to do while pregnant is bear nearly all on national television, I do love the confidence Alessandra exudes. Her clothing choices are stylish yet comfy, and any mom to be can feel and look amazing in the right outfit.
This past week Alessandra ran errands around town in a beautiful and breezy outfit. She paired a gorgeous floral maxi skirt with a plain white fitted shirt and a lightweight scarf. The flowing skirt fit nicely underneath her growing baby bump, while the fitted tee added great shape. We love how laid back yet stylish this look is! If one loves this look, the Bella Band Essentials Rouched Long Sleeve Top shows off one’s baby bump beautifully and looks great paired with any skirt.
Transitioning easily from day to evening, Alessandra chose to wear a vibrant long-sleeve fitted mini dress while frequenting San Paolo Fashion Week. We love how the long sleeves balance the shortness of the dress. The fitted cut hugs ones curves beautifully and is perfect to show off one’s baby bump. If one likes this style, try the Maternal America La Saree Dress. This hot white dress features long sleeves and a very flattering cross over design.
Congratulations to Alessandra on her second pregnancy! We can’t wait to see more of this super model’s pregnancy fashion choices.
Out and about for the holidays, new celebrity mamas have been showing off their cute bundles of joy this week! Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott showed off the first pictures of their precious new family addition, baby Hattie. Born October 10th, Hattie is adorable cuddled up in Tori’s arms. Joining big brother Liam and big sister Stella, as well as Dean’s son Jack from his previous marriage, we could not be happier for the beautiful family.
Also spotted out this week was Jessica Alba with her baby Haven, just four months old. Haven joined big sister Honor earlier this year, and the adorable family has only gotten cuter. Jessica and Haven were out purchasing a Christmas tree, and Haven was bundled up in a furry vest. Jessica wore a flowing knit sweater that would go perfectly with a great pair of skinny jeans and one’s favorite winter boots. So precious!
Alyssa Milano was another mom spotted with her baby this week. Alyssa posted a picture of herself and her adorable three month old son Milo in their garden. They look so cute all cuddled up together! When speaking to Best of Babes, Alyssa spoke of the importance of breastfeeding to her, stating, “I think the thing I like best about breastfeeding is the closeness I feel to Milo and knowing that he’s getting the best of me.” She also explained how it is hard for her to breastfeed in public, due to the paparazzi. “I wish I could breastfeed in public without feeling as though a picture would show up on TMZ,” she says. “… When we go out I bring a bottle of expressed milk because sadly, I’m just not comfortable feeding him in public.”
We love seeing all the adorable newborns! Congratulations to the growing families!
