Motherhood can be a hectic time for first timers. Between sleep deprivation and unexpected events, mama may feel like she's being pushed and pulled in every direction. That feeling only gets worse if she invests in any number of postpartum products that promise to shape her hips to prebaby size or lift and squeeze those breasts to help in breastfeeding. Did you use any of them? Take a look at the slight wacky, somewhat brilliant products, and let me know if they helped you during those first few postpartum months!
If we can talk on the phone hands-free, is there any reason we shouldn't be able to pump that way? Any mom who has ever tried to relax while pumping knows it's no easy feat. Try to read a book while holding the contraption's horns up to your breasts. More likely than not, you will drop something and end up spilling some hard earned liquid gold. PumpEase ($34), a bra-like, stretchy fabric goes right over your nursing bra and has little slits to hold the pump's pieces in place, leaving your hands free to multitask.
Would you invest in one?
