A must-have list of breast feeding products

Good day everyone!

As we’re on the topic of breast feeding, I’d like to share with you some products that can make breastfeeding even more enjoyable and comfortable.

Starting off with the Earth Mama Baby Tubes, these tubes can be used for cold press to use for swelling and tenderness you may be feeling and when heated, the Booby tubes can help with breast tenderness, and encourage milk flow. This is also beneficial to maintain open milk ducts to prevent clogged ducts, promote let-down and comfort symptoms of infection or mastitis. Each box comes with a set of two Baby Tubes, one for each side.

Moving down to the nipple, this area can be the most sensitive for women, especially during breast feeding. To keep nipples soothed and to prevent soreness, use Organic Certified Earth Mama Nipple Butter. This butter balm glides on smoothly, to comfort and protect. It is also clinically tested, hospital recommended, lanolin-free and not a bit sticky! Apply as needed after each feeding.

Why does Breastfeeding matter?

There is no question that breast milk contains everything that your baby needs for the first 6 months of their life. Breast milk contains nutrients and essential vitamins to promote healthy brain development and prevents risks of ear, chest and stomach infections, prevents diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, colitis, SIDS and the risk of obesity later on in life.

Breast milk is always available, at the right temperature, and promotes healthy bonding between you and your baby.

Once your baby is born, the feedings will be frequent, and shorter in duration, ( this is where having their crib close to your bed comes in handy) as their little bodies mature and develop, and as their tummy’s grow, their feedings will become less frequent and longer in duration. If you are worried that your baby isn’t getting enough breast milk, here are some guidelines: To give you an idea your baby’s stomach in only about the size of a cherry when they are born. Look for at least one wet diaper, and one soiled diaper the first day, on day two, at least 2 wet diapers, and by day 7, your baby should be having at least 6 wet diapers and 3 soiled diapers by this point.

Having encouragement and support around you is also important. When I was pregnant, my mother would brag to me about how wonderful and easy breast feeding was for her, that she could feed, pump, have extra milk stored in the fridge. To me it all sounded so simple, and I remember thinking- breastfeeding will be a breeze! Boy, was I wrong! Owen was a sleepy baby and would fall asleep almost immediately, I was having a hard time latching, he preferred one breast to the other, it became frustrating, I was tired, and feeling down.

Here is a valuable lesson that I learned through all of this, don’t be afraid to ask for help. I contacted the local health unit, and had a visiting nurse come by the home to help me stimulate Owen, to keep him awake and interested. She showed me different breast feeding positions and surprisingly, the “football hold” (go figure), worked! A few days passed since the last visit with visiting the  nurse and even though I thought I had breastfeeding down to a science, I still involved myself in a close by breastfeeding group. Although Owen and I were on our way to breastfeeding successfully, it was still great to hear that other Mother’s were going through the same trouble with breastfeeding like I was. It was good to feel like I was not the only one, it was a good way to meet other mothers, and learn some valuable tips.

Breastfeeding and bonding with your baby is one of the most pleasurable aspects of motherhood and infant care. Enjoy it. 🙂

If you are interested in joining a breastfeeding group, La Leche League is a great resource to use, as they have mother to mother support groups and education, tips and tricks of breastfeeding. To find a group near you, you can visit their website at

How I found my joy in crib mattress

Hi Everyone!

My name is Suzanne Toth and I’m a mother to my son, Owen . I am a Childbirth Educator in training, and the blogger behind Tips from a Momma. ( I am so thrilled to be posting about the wonderfully-organic and natural products from Baby Organic

When I was pregnant with Owen, one of the first purchases that came to mind was a crib and mattress. I wanted a mattress that would give him the support that he needed for his ever developing little body, would be durable, waterproof, inexpensive, and above all, safe.

Lullaby Earth Crib Mattress Lullaby Earth Super Lightweight Crib Mattress is lightweight, weighing only 7 lbs, is waterproof for easy cleaning, and fits the ASTM dimensions for crib mattress safety, completely recyclable. Free from harmful chemicals and allergens, has a 2-stage dual firmness feature, and has a lifetime warranty.

When wrapping Owen up into a little “baby burrito” (as we used to call him) I wanted to make sure our mattress was firm and flat according to safety standards. For the first six months your baby should be laying on a firm flat mattress, it is important that the mattress is flat in case your little one rolls on onto his side or tummy, the firm flat surface will decrease your babies risk of suffocation and SIDS. As Owen grew out of his “burrito”, I would walk into his room, he would be sitting there nicely, happy and signing to himself. I was always at ease knowing he had a great restful sleep.

Purchasing a crib that is durable is also important. Your beautiful bundle of joy will poop, pee, spit up, throw up, bounce and play on his or her mattress, finding a crib that is easy to clean up those dirty messes, and durable to handle the rolls and bounces and jumps! (Trust me, as soon as 1-1/2 hits they will not use they’re crib as a trampoline)  you want something that will last.

Lullaby Earth Super Lightweight Crib Mattress, will give your little one great support, keep them cozy and most importantly, safe.
