I have something I need to confess in the spirit of staying honest. Remember how I shared how we ditched the paci? Well it was working just fine until yesterday afternoon. We were having all sorts of fun in the play room when Hailey grabbed a backpack to fill and discovered her long lost pacifier. The kid’s eyes lit up like the fourth of July and the first thing out of her mouth was take my dog back.
I was not prepared for this so I stuttered over a quick, um, it looks really dirty sweetheart, but it was too late. Hailey was already twirling in circles and singing to her paci.
I went to “wash” it for her and cut a hole in the tip. When I handed it back to her, she acknowledged it was broken. I offered to throw it away for her but she went and tossed it in her bed then took out a pen to draw a picture of her big girl bed and her paci with a giant grin on her face.
I know. I’m weak. But I didn’t know how to react! Plus, you guys, she was so, so happy. I guess right now I’m just waiting to see if the broken paci loses its appeal. Weak, I tell you.
Her smile was about this size when she found the paci, though in this particular picture, the giggles are from Koda licking peanut butter off her feet. We really know how to kill some time on a rainy afternoon around here.
Onto nursing tanks!
When I nursed Hailey I had a couple of nursing bras from Target. They worked out ok, but this go ‘round I knew I’d be nursing a lot more on the go. I was looking for something of quality with structure and support.
Bravado Designs offered to send me some items to try out and I’ve really loved them. My favorites are the Essential Nursing Bra, the Bliss Nursing Bra and the Essential Nursing Tank. In fact, I’m so enamored with the tank that I ordered two more for myself (they accept paypal-whoop)!
Side note: when Hailey saw me taking pictures of myself, she insisted on being in the shoot.
I did not direct her at all, yet this still happened…
Posing like mommy! Have I mentioned how much I love this kid?
Anyways, the tank. With the summer heat, I’m absolutely loving throwing on these tanks with shorts and running out the door. They are cute enough to stand on their own for errands, play dates and park days. I love their support and sturdy clasps.
The only negatives are sometimes the boob area doesn’t lay smoothly, especially if I’m wearing nursing pads. It takes a few minutes to get the wrinkles out. Also, the clasp is sturdy, which I love, but unlike the bras, two hands are necessary to open and close it. I’ve done it with one hand once or twice, but really, you need two.
Don’t be surprised if you see me out and I’m wearing the same tank every single time. I promise I’m washing and rotating them!
Do you have a clothing item that you absolutely love?
What is it and do you own more than one?
