I support you. Whether you’re a breastfeeding mom, a formula mom, a pumping mom, a baby-led weaning mom, a puree mom, a homemade baby food mom, a squeezy-pouch mom, a whatever feeding method mom — I support you and want you to know that you are doing a great job. There is way too much pressure and hyperfocus around the way in which we feed our babies when parts of our world suffer from actual hunger, and I wish some of that pressure could be lifted. Being a mom is hard enough. Whether you feed your baby breastmilk or formula, in a bottle or from the breast, you’re going to be judged, so just do what’s best for you and your baby and your circumstances. We all feed our children differently, but we are all feeding with love — which is what unites us.
August is National Breastfeeding Month, and I’ve partnered with Itzy Ritzy to share their infinity scarf that doubles as a nursing cover. I’ve never been a fan of traditional nursing aprons, so this was right up my alley; I like multifunction. The Itzy Ritzy scarf launched at Target about a week ago, and they’ve kindly offered to give away one of their Nursing Happens Infinity Breastfeeding Scarves PLUS a $50 gift card to Target via the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post. Even if you’re not breastfeeding at the moment, I don’t see why you couldn’t enter to win, especially since no one would ever know it’s a nursing scarf! Plus, what
mom woman wouldn’t want a little shopping spree to Target?!
For today’s mama-friendly #OOTD, I pulled together something comfortable for summer with a hint of upcoming fall colors. This classic fedora in burgundy has me starting to think about all the cozy fall things I can start wearing pretty soon. My dress is an older style, but I’ve linked a similar current one from the same brand at the bottom of the post. The striped Itzy Ritzy infinity nursing scarf is soft, lightweight, and right there when I need it; it keeps me covered in the back as well, while providing air flow and eye contact. My booties keep being re-released for the past few years, and I can definitely see why they’re so popular. The crossbody bag is surprisingly roomy for my personal non-baby items (V’s basic necessities fit into the stroller’s bag with a bit of room to spare).
Have you seen my Shop sections above? I regularly update my Women’s, Men’s, Baby, Maternity, & Home sections with items I either currently use or would love to try and think my Bond Girls would enjoy as well!
