I think it’s great that fashionable (yet functional) nursing attire for us breastfeeding mother’s is available on the market. I know back in the day, mothers who breastfed their children had to lift their shirts, leaving their backs exposed to the element and not to mention they’d be exposing themselves for the public eye to see. I’m glad that’s not me, it would be no picnic!

Speaking of nursing attire, I just discovered the wonderful line of nursing wear from a company called Glamour Mom. This company was created when Line Rothman, the company founder,  could not find a nursing top to meet her needs.  So out of her frustration, Glamourmom was born! She first designed the classic tank top with a built-in nursing bra, and many other products such as shirts, dresses, swimsuits, and pajamas followed short after.

After sharing my appreciation for  Glamour Mom attire,  I was able to review a Glamourmom® Nursing Bra Long Tank in Strawberry. I love this tank top as it’s given me great support! But that’s not all, it’s fashionable, looks great when I layer it or wear it as is. I love the length of this tank as I find myself NOT checking to see if my butt is being exposed and it hides my less than perfect tummy! The clasps are great as I can access my daughters milk supply quite easily for a much impatient child. The spaghetti straps are fully adjustable for a perfect fit! Breast pads can also fit discreetly without showing through, of which I found was not the case with some of my regular nursing bras.

My Glamourmom tank is one of the most comfortable nursing tanks I own. It’s been put to the test as I’ve worn my tank out, slept in it, and washed it several times and it still feels and looks the same as when I first received it! I’m prone to get another when my next little one is on the way!

The price may seem slightly steep but trust me, what you are purchasing or thinking about purchasing it of high quality and defiantly worth it.

Glamourmom is available for purchase at your local maternity boutique or online at Glamourmom.com! Check them out as they’ve  great deals on color of the month attire and their limited stock has some pretty cute things too… like the orange tie dye tank, one of my personal favorites!

The Mother’s Day Gift of Life

cryo

Last mother’s day as a belated gift, I gave my mom her first granddaughter! I’m  was pretty young when I first had my child and the money to save my child’s umbilical blood was not there. I’ve read for about this procedure and learned a lot and have decided that with my next child I will probably be saving my child’s cord blood as it a precious gift that could save their life or one of their siblings.

You should know that every baby’s umbilical cord contains stem cells, which are special cells found in bone marrow. These stem cells are the ‘master cells’ that form all of the other cells found in our blood – the white cells that fight infection, the red cells that carry oxygen, the platelets that promote clotting and immune system cells.

Here is a testimonial from a Cryo-Cell International Client:

“My children are the most precious gifts that I will ever have and I want to do everything I can to make sure they are well. While I was pregnant with my first child, I would see articles and ads about cord blood and it bothered me that it was so expensive but what if I one day needed this blood. The reality of having only one chance or it really went in the garbage kept me wondering if I would regret not investing. What if he had cancer or his dad or I were sick, would that blood have been the cure? Through research, I came across Cryo-Cell International, Inc., a company with the most reasonable rates and the assurance of two holding facilities.

When I was pregnant with my second child, we wondered if one bank was enough? Finances were tighter and should we spend the money? Then we realized that his brothers blood might not match for the new baby. The next day, stories were breaking about how Cord blood had saved or changed the lives of children, one cancer, one cerebral palsy. Then we discovered that a friend was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. He didn’t bank his daughters blood and wished he had. Three years prior, I lost a friend to renal cancer when she was 29. We felt like it was our answer.

We are just beginning to see miracles that this blood can bring. We have two “life insurance policies”, that is how we look at it. If anyone in the family gets ill, there is a chance that the blood could save our lives. If we don’t use it, then it is there for our son’s children.”

Sincerely,
mother of Parker and Davis

Cryo-Cell International Client
