According to the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action, “This World Breastfeeding Week, WABA calls for concerted global action to support women to combine breastfeeding and work. Whether a woman is working in the formal, non-formal or home setting, it is necessary that she is empowered in claiming her and her baby’s right to breastfeed.”1843_11-710social

Milk Nursingwear has been busy behind the scenes supporting WBW celebrations across the United States by donating stylish nursing tops to events occurring coast-to-coast!

Baby Product Recalls

July 16th, 2015

We at Milk Nursingwear know nothing is more important than your little one’s safety.  Each year many baby related products are recalled due to not meeting national safety standards. It’s important to stay up to date and protect your family from any hidden dangers.

You should make an effort to regularly check out listings for product recalls, especially if you choose to shop at consignment stores or garage sales or decide to accept hand-me-downs from friends and family.

One good place to start – the government regulated websites that list all products recalled in the United States.

There are also a couple of great parenting websites that make these recalls a little easier to navigate.

bQyZAs6ISafe Kids Worldwide compiles a monthly as well as a yearly listing of recalls specifically impacting child and baby products.

logo_200x200BabyCenter takes a different approach.  They have created a Product Recall Finder which is a searchable database.

No matter where you choose to get informed, make it a priority for the loved ones in your life.

Introducing Rachel’s Remedy

June 11th, 2015

Milk Nursingwear is excited to announce that we are now carrying a new product that will come in handy in those early days and weeks of nursing!

524ba8424e3d931cef9739a043a7200f

Rachel’s Remedy was conceived of and developed by a nursing mom who was seeking breast pain relief! Rachel experienced mastitis and clogged ducts, and needed a solution that did not sacrifice mobility and enabled her to keep her clothes dry.

So she invented Rachel’s Remedy, the first and only wearable, moist-heat therapy for nursing moms. This organic therapeutic product treats breast discomforts associated with breastfeeding such as:

  • Mastitis
  • Clogged ducts
  • Engorgement
  • General discomfort

Rachel’s Remedy is waterproof.  use6It takes seconds to prepare and provides long-lasting relief. The pad slips into your bra while keeping your clothes totally dry, so you can treat your discomfort while moving around.

This exciting new product is perfect for moms on the go.

Each package contains one therapy pad. rrheroaThe pad consists of a therapeutic flax seed pillow that you heat in the microwave, an organic cotton moisture pad (for optional moist heat relief), and a water resistant pouch. You can also pop it in the freezer for cold relief to treat pain and swelling.

Watch this video for a demonstration of Rachel’s Remedy, which you can now find at Milk Nursingwear.

Let us know what you think!
