6 Best Services for Breastfeeding Moms
January 02, 2017 0 Comments
Breastfeeding can be both physically and emotionally draining for many new mothers. There are lots of lists of the best nursing products out there but we think services are even more important for new moms, who really don’t have the time or extra energy to focus on things other than their families and careers. Here's to 2017 and to making breastfeeding moms lives easier!
Milk Stork is the first and only breast milk delivery service for traveling moms, providing no-fuss, refrigerated, express shipping or easy toting of your breast milk to your baby back home. How it works: 1) Pump as usual and refrigerate your milk, 2) Activate the cooling unit in your Milk Stork box then back your refrigerated breastmilk and seal the box. 3) Schedule a FedEx pickup and your breastmilk will be overnighted home.
Often overlooked but extremely important, especially for new mothers who are having issues breastfeeding, lactation consultants are health professionals who specialize in the clinical management of breastfeeding and come to your home to consult on issues with latching, milk supply and painful nursing. You can find one near you at www.ilca.org, The International Lactation Consultant Association.
It’s extremely important to eat well after labor and birth to recover as well as to provide our babies with the proper nutrients through breastmilk. Plus the rest of the family needs to eat too! Cooking healthy takes time and who has time to cook with a newborn? There are tons of different meal kit services to choose from. We love Food Matters which follows these three principles: 1) Food is a functional medicine: meals contain no gluten, dairy or refined sugars that disrupt the body’s natural equilibrium. 2) Eat for energy: in order to sustain vitality over the day, meals are created while optimizing the glycemic index to keep blood sugars steady. 3) Your body needs balance: each meal is prepared to maintain an alkaline state in your system
If you love to cook and can find the time, but don’t want to go to the supermarket or research recipes, try a service like Blue Apron. You choose your weekly menu and they delivery the freshest ingredients plus easy to follow recipes to your door. Serving size for the Family Plan costs under $9.
BEAUTY AT HOME
With a new baby at home most moms don’t have time to go to the salon and get their nails done. That’s why we love Glamsquad because they come to you. Their services include: Blowouts, Updos, Makeup, Manicures & Pedicures. A great pick-me-up for new moms who don’t have the time but want to start feeling like themselves again. Get your blowout or pedicure in the comfort of your own home while breastfeeding your baby. They’re offering $25 off your first appointment. Currently only in NYC, Miami and L.A.
As a new mom, you not only don't have time to figure out what to wear, but most things in your closet either don't fit or aren't nursing friendly. You could either splurge and get a personal stylist to shop for you or you can subscribe to a service like Keaton Row or Stitch Fix, both online styling services that offer personalized styling consultations and deliver outfits to your door.
