Breastfeeding in the news

We are cheering on mama Amberlee Venti (founder of Pippy Sips) as she goes to a pitch competition to raise money for her new product, Maia. The stainless steel, vacuum-sealed milk storage tumblers help pumping mamas keep an eye on milk temps. Wanna see this product hit the market? Check out the crowdfunding page here!

We sure do hope more companies take eBay’s lead.

“When is it ok to stop breastfeeding? Whenever you need to.”

We heard of a town

Where there was ne’er a frown.

Mamas can feed

Whenever they need.

Someone get the mayor a crown!

Postpartum mind + body

Brit + Co. offered up some great advice on finding postpartum support.

We are keeping our eyes on this new drug that is showing promise in treating postpartum depression.

Never underestimate the powers of mindfulness and meditation.

Superhero Spotlight

We are big fans of Kat Von D and she gave us even more reason to lover her after opening up about her fertility issues while breastfeeding her sweet baby. Check the video out here.

Winning the Internet this week

It’s all of you! THANK YOU to everyone who supported our fundraiser for the Pregnancy and Postpartum Health Alliance. Thanks to you, we raised enough money to provide 20 hours of postpartum support to mamas in need. Way to go.
