How big is your newborn baby’s stomach?
How big is a newborn baby’s stomach? 1-day old baby: A newborn has a tiny stomach the size of cherry that can only hold a teaspoon of colostrum (your first milk before the milk production really kicks in). Because your baby’s stomach is so tiny, you’ll need to feed her constantly in the first 24 hours. check the rest of our post for the info on insta #newborn #momlife #pregnancy #motherhood #momtobe #nursing #normalizebreastfeeding #maternity #breastfeeding
Ways your partner can help you during your breastfeeding journey
There are lots of ways your partner can help you during your breastfeeding journey:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. They can take the classes with you, and help you remember all the tips and tricks. 2. They can bring you freshwater, nipple butter, warm tea, and a snack every time you sit down to nurse. 3. They can warm up a rice sock for your shoulders every time you sit down to nurse. 4. They can have a lactation consultant's number programmed in their phone if you need the extra... More on Insta + limited…
“you are ***insert number*** centimeters”
Ever wonder what it actually looks like when your provider says “you are ***insert number*** centimeters” Well, this is what it looks like! (vid style!) ⠀⠀ When your nurse/provider is checking you in labor, I am just putting two fingers inside your cervix and seeing how far I’m able to open.It takes a little practice at first, and everyone’s exam is a Lil different, but after a while, you get the hang of checking cervixes! more on insta.

I found out about your bras from the la vie Instagram... and I just wanted to say thank you times a million! I haven’t felt the way I had envisioned about breastfeeding. I expected to feel awed by what my body was able to do and that just wasn’t what was happening. After exclusive pumping for two months in generic hands-free sports bras, I ordered your bras. I can’t say enough how much I love them! I feel like a new person. It’s a small change that made a huge difference. more on insta.
Stages of engorgement
Some helpful tips for you! ⭐️THE STAGES OF BREAST ENGORGEMENT⭐️ In the first days postpartum, your actual breast tissue swells and milk production starts, which causes engorgement. Your breasts can feel HOT, ITCHY, and ROCK HARD! No engorgement - your breasts will feel soft, like your lips. Moderate engorgement - your breasts will feel mildly firm, like the tip of your nose. Severe engorgement - your breasts will feel VERY hard, like your forehead. More on insta!
Pippa VS Ayla
✨Part 2⠀ @bemybreastfriend shares her views on the Pippa VS Ayla bras! ⠀ The main difference I have found between the two bras is the most obvious- the extra lace feature that lines the bottom of the Ayla bra. Since this is simply an added detail to the bra it does not necessarily add or take away from the bra itself. It is an attractive touch and it allows me feel like I am wearing sexy under garments again! ⠀ More on our Insta!
Pippa VS Ayla
@bemybreastfriend shares her experience with our Dairy Fairy Bras Pippa vs Ayla ⠀ ✨Part 1 ⠀ ⠀ I spent the entire length of my breastfeeding journey wearing pumping attachments and unattractive nursing bras. It wasn’t until October ‘19, one month before I would unexpectedly wean due to pregnancy that I received my first Dairy Fairy nursing and hands-free pumping bra. I immediately fell in love... more on our page! ⠀ Product by @the_dairyfairy ( #📷 @bemybreastfriend )
