NURSING & BRAS FOR NUSING
The most natural instinct of a mother is to nurse, and the most natural instinct of a baby is to suckle. But nursing, or breastfeeding, has had a strange and convoluted history.
Much like cloth diapering and babywearing, there have always been differing views about correct technique, and even acceptability. In the days of old, nursing was viewed as distasteful in the upper classes, so those who could afford to employed wet nurses to nurse their infants. This changed when, in the 18 th century, French child-rearing philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau romanticised the idea of natural mothering, and nursing one’s own baby became the fashionable thing to do.
In the 19 th century, mothers began to lose faith in breast milk, thinking that it was not nutritionally sufficient for their babies. Many turned to cow’s milk, which proved dangerous and many babies died from improperly pasturised milk. At the same time, the advent of modern science meant that people’s faith in hospitals and doctors increased and it became common practice to give birth in hospital. This led to a heightened awareness of sterility, which led to mothers questioning the cleanliness of the act of nursing.
As things became more efficient, milk banks were set up, and bottle feeding overtook direct nursing. This was further prompted by the fact that more women were coming out to work. Then, in the late 1800s, powdered milk formula was manufactured and nursing declined even further.
Nursing has since made a comeback, firstly because breast milk has been proven to boost the immunity and overall health of babies and infants. This was bolstered by findings that the act of direct nursing is emotionally and socially beneficial to both mothers and their children. Now, mothers are encouraged to direct nurse exclusively for as long as possible, or to at least to give their babies expressed milk, and there are a myriad of ways to support them in this natural, wonderful pursuit.
Nursing should be an enjoyable bonding time between mother and child, so we have found products that will help mothers enjoy their special mummy-baby time. We have also included fun and useful products that mummies and babies alike can enjoy because life should be fun!

La Leche League International
La Leche League International was formed in 1956, in Franklin Park, IL, USA by a group of seven mothers who wanted to provide breastfeeding help and support to interested women. Two mothers, Mary White and Marian Tompson, were breastfeeding their children at a church picnic and many other women expressed interest, or told them how they had wanted to breastfeed but failed.
With their years of experience, this organization has teamed up with manufacturers to best products possible.
Bell & Cass Nursing cover
Bel & Cass nursing covers are perfect for on-the-go mums.

A convenient side pocket gives mummy a place to stash wipes and other necessities, and Bel & Cass nursing covers are completely foldable for outings.
Pesto and Baby Cubes
Every mother of a young baby or toddler knows that convenience is key. That is why Pesto Cubes and Baby Cubes are essential additions to their kitchens.

They are even handy for storing breast milk for on-the-go mothers and babies. The reason the two are separate? So that there’s no chance of the oil from the pesto or normally prepared foods getting into your precious breast milk or baby

Q: I am committed to nursing, but I feel awkward nursing in public. Do you have any tips to make it more comfortable?
A: - What you wear will help make it more comfortable to nurse wherever you are. There are so many beautiful nursing outfits available nowadays, but if you don’t want to purchase anything, stick to tops and pants or skirts and avoid dresses unless they are v-neck or button-up. The same goes for shirts, too.
- Carry a lightweight shawl or blanket to drape over your shoulder and your baby. Alternatively, invest in a carrier that gives good nursing coverage. Another alternative is a nursing cover like Bell & Cass.
- Practice nursing with your cover or carrier at home. Ask someone to be your eyes, or do it in front of a mirror. Practice different angles too.
- Try to feed before you go out so that you and your baby can just enjoy the trip.
- Recce your regular haunts to find the most secluded spots for discrete nursing. For unfamiliar places, ask other nursing mothers or the staff. Most public areas have dedicated nursing rooms which are quite comfortable and pleasant.
- Get acquainted with your baby’s nursing cues so that you can start feeding them before they get too fussy. It’s easier to arrange yourself properly when both you and your baby are calm.
Q: My baby’s teeth are growing in nicely and I want him to explore more solid foods. What can I offer him?
A: There are so many delicious things you can now let your baby try safely with the Baby Fresh Feeder. Here are a few suggestions:
Apple, pear, peach pieces - let your baby enjoy unmashed, uncooked pieces without worrying about them biting off more than they can chew. Just pop fairly large pieces into the Baby Fresh Feeder so that your baby can scrape off digestible bits.
Whole berries, melon pieces or grapes - you can be assured your baby won’t accidentally swallow them whole. Don’t worry about deseeding grapes … the seeds will stay safely in the Baby Fresh Feeder.
Raw carrots, capsicum, tomatoes or cucumber.
Chicken or fish cooked to a soft consistency.
When your baby goes through teething pains, you can freeze anything you want to place into the Baby Fresh Feeder for cooling chewing relief.
Q: I recently stopped nursing and I still have a lot of nipple ointment left over. Can I use it for anything else?
A: Nipple creams, especially the natural ones like EMAB Natural Nipple Butter, don’t have to be wasted. They can actually save you a lot of money! Here’s how:
- Rash Ointment - Nipple salve is essentially an ointment that protects and keeps the affected area moist without wetting it, so it works perfectly as a rash guard that also slowly heals the skin. It is especially suitable for the rash that develops around teething toddler’s mouths and chin due to the constant drool waterfall.
- Diaper Ointment - For all of the same reasons, nipple ointment is perfect to protect your baby’s tender tushie from number ones and number twos, and to heal diaper rash if it occurs.
- Moisturizer - Because it is edible, you can slather it all over your darling baby’s face and whole body and not worry about them licking it off.
- Lip Balm - Again, nipple balm is edible. It’s also smooth and protective. What better lip balm can you ask for?
- First Aid Ointment - It’s well-nigh impossible to get any antiseptic cream onto cuts and grazes, but nipple ointment is soothing rather than stinging, so children actually want it slathered all over their boo-boos. It also stems the blood flow. Keep it handy for painful razor nicks too, and it’s a Godsend for eczema sufferers.
- Itch Relief - Lovely soothing nipple ointment is great for itchy stretch marks. And insect bites. And any itchy spot.
- Household Helper - This ‘magical’ stuff can do anything! Well, almost. Got a stuck zipper? Slather it up with nipple cream and watch it glide over smoothly. Your ring won’t slip off? Grab that nipple ointment! And don’t go and buy lanolin to treat your wool baby or mother items … use your lanolin-rich ointment!
