Breastfeeding Friendly Businesses

Wow, I just realized it's been nearly a year since any of us have posted! I really want to apologize to everybody for that. Amanda got really busy with home-schooling, and I was combining home-schooling with 3 jobs - my store, my magazine and the census. For a while I was working 60-80 hours a week and juggling my ninth grader's schedule. My fifth grader was at a Christian school, and providentially, my husband was able to help a lot with the kids during that time.

I'm so thankful for the extra income that really helped during a time of need, but I found other things sliding a bit, and for that I do apologize.

I'm back in the store most of the time now. My daughter is, for the first time in her life, attending a public school, and I am thankful for the many blessings we've had this year.

One of those blessings on a professional level has been the recognition by Medela of A Nurturing Moment as a Medela Certified Nursing Center. We were very pleased to receive this recognition.

Now Bravado, my favorite maker of nursing bras, has come up with a wonderful site that lets moms know where they can find a breastfeeding-friendly business. This is particularly useful if you're traveling! Think how nice it would be if you're visiting relatives this Christmas and you're out and about in an unfamiliar area to pull out your phone, go to this site, and find a place where you can comfortably nurse your baby!

If you find a business that is particularly open to nursing mothers, you can add it to the site. And you can also leave comments about the businesses listed there. What a great way to reward businesses that are mother-baby friendly.
