Welcome to the Nursing Bling Blog!

Hello From Minnesota! I’m Yvette, founder and creator of Nursing Bling, Nursing Jewels, and Nursing Wrapz Nursing Covers. Nursing Bling’s focus is form AND function. Who says breastfeeding has to slow you down or crimp your style? We believe breastfeeding is one of the most important things families can do to ensure healthy children, and we’re bringing breastfeeding accessories into the 21st century, one category at a time!

My background as an accessory designer led me to create our first product, Nursing Bling. Nursing Bling was originally an extra, surprise baby shower gift for a girlfriend who was expecting and planning to breastfeed. Once friends and family saw the gift they began requesting the “bling” as gifts for others as well as for themselves. Word spread about Nursing Bling, the calls kept coming, and the rest is history.

Nursing Bling’s line of Nursing Wrapz Nursing Covers are designed with active moms in mind. As a flight attendant, I often saw traveling breastfeeding moms struggling with unwieldy blankets and ill conceived covers made from scratchy, uncomfortable fabrics. I knew there had to be a better way, and after several prototypes Nursing Wrapz was born. From the innovative use of soft jersey knit fabrics to our intuitive, ergonomic designs – no detail has been left to chance. Excellence in fit, fabric, and comfort are Nursing Bling Nursing Wrapz standards, but moms also feel special wearing Nursing Bling Nursing Wrapz and, dare I say, cool?

My hope in creating the Nursing Bling blog is to bring to life a resource rich community for breastfeeding mothers. Look to our blog for the latest in nursing news, nursing products, and lifestyle items every mom wants to know to ensure the best health for themselves and their babies. Take a moment to subscribe to our rss feed so you don’t miss any breastfeeding news.

I hope you enjoy the Nursing Bling blog as much as I enjoy researching and writing for it!

Peace, Love & Breastfeeding,

~Yvette

Breastfeeding In Public

How confidently will you breastfeed in public without the worry of accidental onlookers?

 

How confidently will you breastfeed in public without the worry of accidental onlookers?

Protecting your privacy and looking good while breastfeeding shouldn’t be stressful or keep you from doing anything you enjoyed before having your baby.

Until now the only option for discreet nursing in public has been apron style nursing covers with hard hoops and loud patterns that draw attention TO you rather than keeping breastfeeding unnoticed.

You need a chic nursing cover that lets you look good and feel comfortably confident while feeding baby naturally and pumping.

Forget “old school” apron style nursing covers in loud prints that blow your cover. Finally, Nursing Bling has created a stylish nursing cover offering 360˚ of coverage in soft, breathable, go with everything colors.

Choose your color and order your nursing cover today to be covered and confident while breastfeeding!

Breastfeeding Tips – Benefits Of Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding tips: benefits of breastfeeding

Breastfeeding Tips: Benefits Of Breastfeeding

Once you’ve given birth, breastfeeding is the single most important thing you can do to protect your baby and help to promote good health.  Best of all, breast feeding is free.

Along with saving you money on formula, breastfeeding can also help you to keep your medical bills down.  Babies that are fed with formula get sicker more often and more seriously than babies that are breastfed  They also have more ear infections, respiratory infections, and other problems.

This can be even more true if your family has had a history of allergies.  When a baby is breastfed, the antibodies pass on from the mother to the baby, helping to protect against illness and allergies.  As the baby’s system matures, his body will begin to make it’s own antibodies, and he’ll be more equipped to handle sensitivities of food.

Sucking on the breast will also help with the development or jaw alignment and the development of the cheekbone.  For this very reason, there is less of the need for costly orthodontic work when the child gets older.

Unlike formula, breast milk is always ready, always available, convenient, and always the right temperature for feeding.  Plus, it contains all of the vitamins and minerals your growing baby needs, saving you a  lot of money.

Breastfeeding also offers many benefits for the mom as well.  The baby sucking at the breast will cause contractions right after birth, leading to less bleeding for the mom, and helping her uterus to it’s shape before pregnancy much faster.

Breastfeeding will also burn calories, so a mom can lose weight much faster than if she fed her baby with a bottle.  Breastfeeding will also create a special bond with the mother and the baby – which is one thing formula simply cannot do.

Peace, love and breastfeeding,

Yvette
