Today Mommy’s Little Miracle is featuring a brand who is taking the pumping world by storm and giving pumping moms everywhere the opportunity to combine fashion with functionality- Sarah Wells Breast Pump Bags!

When I had my son, I was fortunate to be able to stay home with him. I did use a pump often in the beginning, but didn’t have to worry about transporting it in anything special. Since I’m planning on returning to the workforce soon and hope to have more children, carrying a breast pump to work may be a necessity for me down the road. If that’s the case, I’d love to carry my pump in a fashionable, professional bag like those from Sarah Wells! -Elisebet

About Sarah Wells Breast Pump Bags

(As from their website) 

The idea for a stylish and uber-functional breast pump bag came to me in 2011 after the birth of my daughter, Maddy. Breastfeeding was really important to me, but the transition back to work and carrying a¬†pump¬†brought about some challenges. Everyday I schlepped a purse and my (quite ugly) pump bag; throw in an extra case for my iPad or laptop and a lunch box and I felt like a pack mule walking down the streets of Washington, DC. I just couldn’t find an “all-in-one” bag that could¬†separately¬†store my breast pump and¬†everything¬†else I needed to carry.

I suppose you could put your pump equipment in your existing purse or buy a nicer tote. But will it have special breast pump pockets, keeping equipment and bottles¬†separate¬†from everything¬†else, let alone lined with easy-to-clean material, all while being fashionable? This is how Sarah Wells bags were born.”

The first bag introduced by Sarah Wells Breast Pump Bags is the Maddy bag! As functional as it is stylish, the Maddy measures 13″ in length, 8″ in width, and 11″ tall, and the straps on the Maddy have an 11.5″ drop! The Maddy was designed to fit most brands and models of breast pumps and although some may be to large for the convenient side pockets, they will fit comfortably in the main pocket of the Maddy bag.

Since most pumping mommies take their breast pumps to work with them, they need a place to keep their breast milk cold while they finish up their day at work. While some moms prefer to use the cooler that their pump may have come with, and some store their breast milk in a communal fridge at their workplace, there are some moms who just aren’t comfortable with that! For those of you who prefer discretion, you’re in luck! The Maddy bag has undergone testing that shows that the side pockets of the bag can keep your refrigerated breast milk cold, or begin cooling your recently pumped milk, for up to four hours when you use proper ice packs. External temperatures do affect this though so always make sure that your breast milk is stored properly!

There are so many great features to the Maddy bag by Sarah Wells Breast Pump Bags that make this a pumping moms must have! To learn more about Sarah Wells Breast Pump Bags, use this link!

Review: Keep your teething baby stylish with Bazzle Baby Banda Bibs! #holidaygiftguide

Baby J has been teething, is teething, and probably will still be teething for weeks to come. As he’s cutting his pre-molars and molars, the amount of drool that comes out of his mouth is just amazing. How does he stay hydrated?! The tops of his shirts become completely saturated, unless I put a bib on him, which he usually yanks off immediately. But I’ve tricked him. He doesn’t realize the bandanas that Bazzle Baby sent us to review are actually BIBS and not just cool toddler accessories, so he keeps them on. Win for Mommy! =D

Bazzle Baby is a fun online store that sells paci clips, burpers (burp clothes), hair accessories, socks, Little Leggies (leg warmers), hats, and several styles of bibs. I’m crazy about the Handmade Baby Bibs that Bazzle Baby sells. They’re made by moms here in the USA, and they’re really, really cute!

We received two of the Banda Bib II in Lime Greenie and a blue giraffe print (pictured above) that I couldn’t find on their website. The bibs are made with 100 percent cotton in the front and 100 percent polyester on the back, so they soak up the moisture and keep it off your baby or toddler’s skin. Both bibs are really, really soft too. I think that’s part of the reason why Baby J doesn’t mind wearing them- they’re more comfortable than any other bib he owns, especially around the neck.

The bibs fasten in the back with snaps. There are two snaps, letting you adjust the bib as your baby grows.

Bazzle Baby also sent us their Houndstooth Burper (9″x18″), which looks much better in person than in the website photo! It’s big, soft, and absorbent. If you’re looking for a nice quality burp cloth, I’d definitely recommend checking out the 100 percent cotton burpers on Bazzle Baby.
