Mama Fashion

Every nursing mom knows how important it is to have an appropriate wardrobe to breastfeed.


Shirts that allow easy access and don’t expose your belly.

Clothing that allows moms to feel confident and comfortable in public.

Eliminating the need to wear and have to tug through layers of clothes.



Momzelle creates innovative nursing apparel that does all of these things.

After crafting a top that was given an overwhelming amount of positive response, Christine, the creater of Momzelle, decided to create tops for other women too. In 2009 Momzelle had the opportunity to pitch their idea on CBC’s Dragon’s Den (the Canadian version of Shark Tank!). As their company continues to grow and reach more people their focus is keeping customers happy with outstanding customer service support.

The high quality fabric is made and designed to be worn over and over again. The clothing holds its shape and will not pill. As a breastfeeding mother, I can attest to each of these features. I only want the best fabrics around when nursing my child, so the quality fabrics mean a lot to me.



If you’re looking for a shirt to wear in any part of your mommy stage, this one is for you. The Josiane can very easily be dressed up or dressed down; it’s very versatile.

To the touch this shirt is so soft and almost silky. Made primarily with rayon, this shirt is so, so comfortable. This is my favorite aspect of the shirt. The softness is undeniable.

This top, as well as the Florence and Vanessa, can be worn through all stages of pregnancy and breastfeeding. The ruching on the sides and the long length of the shirt make it easy to wear during pregnancy and postpartum. You will feel great and look good in this flattering top.

Access for nursing comes easy with the Josiane top. The cross over panels open easily to the under panel. This ensures a quick, discreet, and comfortable breastfeeding experience.


This top is super cute and made for pregnancy and breastfeeding. Its loose, flowing silhouette feature is perfect for hot summer days.

I love the versatility of this shirt. It’s super easy to dress the shirt up, or wear it casually. The lace on the shoulders adds a pretty touch that really adds another dimension to the top.

Accessing your nursing bra is easy with the Florence top. Simply lift up the front panel of the shirt and pull the inside panel down or from the side – whichever you feel more comfortable doing.

I’m usually not a fan of loose fitting shirts; I prefer tighter, formfitting tops. This shirt I actually really like. The top is a tad tight, which I like; and the bottom is flowing. Maybe I’m more of a fan of it because it’s summer and it’s super hot all the time. Either way, it’s a great shirt and it’s now one of my go-to’s.


The Vanessa top is a classic v-neck shirt with a little flare. I love v-neck shirts, and this is definitely one of my favorites now. I especially like this top because of the crossover panels; these really distinguish the Vanessa top from other tops.

These crossover panels are perfect for breastfeeding. They hid what need to be hidden and allow easy access for feeding when needed.

The ruching on the sides of the shirt allow it to grow with your belly all throughout pregnancy. I’m not pregnant, but this shirt fits great. The stretch in the fabric gives plenty of room to grow for future pregnancies. This ruching is also perfect for your postpartum figure. It’s flattering for your pregnancy, postpartum, and nursing figure(s).

This shirt is very affordable and can be worn through pregnancy and breastfeeding. Your money will be well used with a purchase of the Vanessa maternity and nursing top.


Momzelle is a great place to find apparel for pregnancy, postpartum, and nursing. Their clothing is affordable and really cute. Check out their website and order something for yourself or give as a gift!

Momsense,The Smart Breastfeeding Meter- Review

Let me start off by saying, where was this little gadget when my baby boy was a newborn???!!!img_5208

As a first time mom, who is exclusively breastfeeding, I was constantly worried about pretty much every part of breastfeedingf. Was he getting enough milk? How much will my nipples hurt? How can I stop this from happening? The worries go on. And I know a lot of first time mamas feel the same way! Thankfully, sites like Best For Parents are helpful when it comes to finding products that can help to make breastfeeding easier – plus I had a lot of support from my family. But this didn’t stop me from worrying! In the beginning weeks, the thing I was worried most about was whether or not my son was getting enough milk. Again, I know I’m not alone in this because it tends to be a frequent topic in just about every mom group I’m in. Thanks be to God, we were doing just fine and my son was getting more than enough. In fact, I ended up getting an oversupply for a little bit there, because I was worried I was undersupplying and started doing all sorts of things to boost supply. In those crazy days, I could have really used the reassurance of Momsense to give me some insight in just how much was my son taking in per nursing session.


Momsense is a smart breastfeeding meter that can inform mom’s with the use of a smartphone app how much milk your baby is taking in. I received this little package and was amazed at how simple the design actually is.img_5210 It is essentially a pair of earbuds with an extra little sensor attached that is placed just under your baby’s ear. The Momsense comes with sticky pads to stick on to the meter, which is what you will safely place on your baby. Not to worry, the adhesive is baby safe!img_5211

The directions explain that each sticky pad should last multiple uses; however, I found that it actually lost its stickiness quickly at first, because I was putting it on and off so many times to get the right positioning. Once you get the hang of finding the right placement on the first try, the sticky pads should get many uses. The head phones plug into your phone and you download the Momsense smartphone app. With this app, it will measure your baby’s milk intake, you will be able to listen to your baby’s swallows (and it records it!), and you will be able to keep an ongoing timeline to keep track of their feeding habits. How cool is that?!


In my personal experience, my active 4 month old is getting quite squirmy and kicks and wants to grab at my hair, necklace, shirt or whatever he can reach all while nursing. So this was very difficult for me to use with him. HOWEVER, like I said, in the beginning I was SO WORRIED about whether or not he was getting enough! I mean let’s be honest, breastfeeding is hard work! For a first time mom, there is a major learning curve! I feel like Momsense in those beginning stages would have given me so much peace of mind! Newborns also don’t squirm the way a 4 month old does, so it would be MUCH easier to use in those younger stages. Despite my squirmy boy making it a little more difficult, I must admit I loved that the app stores and records the precious noises and swallow sounds he makes while he nurses. As I’m writing this review, I was just browsing through the app and was listening to some of the recordings and it just warmed my heart to hear him. 🙂 So for me, it is not a tool I will use every day; however, as we continue on our journey I think it will be fun and informative to break out once a week or so to document his breastfeeding habits, inform me about his intake, and record those precious noises, of course! If I had this when he was a newborn, it likely would have been my BFF. The app also has some other fun features like coupons for different products and breastfeeding tips.

Side Note: For those of you who snagged the newest iPhone with no headphone jack, you will need to purchase the adapter! #Applebringbackthejack

So there you have it! From one mommy to another, just doing the best I can each and every day! If you have a little one on the way and plan to breastfeed, you will love this product! If your baby is older and your breastfeeding habits and routines are well-established and your baby is growing and thriving, you just keep up the good work-no gadget necessary! 😉
