Boob Nursing Wear

Nurse in Comfort

Nurse in Comfort

We have always been big supporters of breastfeeding, for so many reasons, and every breastfeeding Mama knows that the right support makes all the difference.  Whether it be your family, workplace,  local lactation consultant, or the new Mamava Lactation Station at the airport, every little bit of encouragement counts.

A little physical support doesn’t hurt either, especially when it comes to nursing bras.  Boob Fast Food T Shirt Bras are comfortable enough to sleep in.  And like all the Boob maternity and nursing apparel, they are made with sustainable materials like organic cotton, fleece made from recycled bottles.  And they only work with factories that adhere to their strict code of conduct to ensure their workers receive a decent pay.

Do Reusable Snack Bags Work?

As you may have read in my post on zero waste lunches, my son’s school has banned all single serving food items to eliminate trash. It’s time to invest in some greener food storage options!

I was excited about trying Lunchskins or other reusable snack bags, but read a comment on Monday from a user who struggled with mold on the fabric. Many parents LOVE the product, but others have also complained about stale food and not being able to dry the bags out enough before the next use.

Moldy bags and stale food reports make me hesitate on the brink of a purchase. At $7-15 dollars a bag, it’s tough to shell out so much and not know whether or not it will work. Does anyone else have feedback on reusable snack bags? Are you able to use them successfully? What’s your trick for avoiding mold on the fabric?
