Celebrating Dads! #LittleVictories

With Father’s Day right around the corner, I love how social media is celebrating dads!  According to Bravado Designs, they recently conducted a survey in which 87% of new moms ranked new dads as the #1 person they rely on for emotional support for breastfeeding. I know this is definitely true for me! I could not have successfully nursed our son for 15 months without my husband’s love and support. It was definitely an uphill battle in the beginning with latching issues, mastitis, and tremendous pain but I got through it! With baby #2 on the way, I know my husband will be there to support and help me again through my breastfeeding journey.

Upgrade dad’s shaving routine with Philips Norelco this Father;s Day!

So how do you top the first Father’s Day? With a gift as good as last years, of course and helping him upgrade his morning shaving routine! After much thought, I decided to not reinvent the wheel and give my husband the same gift as last year…what, you say??? Well, he loved it so much that I thought what better than to get him another one for the his van pool and desk at work. Especially with baby #2 on the way, I wanted to find the perfect gift to help save him time and get a clean, close shave! What better gift than the Philips Norelco shaver 8800!

My husband works at least 10 hour days and leaves the house around 5 am…so it was logical to get him the Philips Norelco Shaver 8800 for his desk at work. The Philips Norelco shaver 8800 would definitely help him change his morning routine by being able to get more zzz’s and waking up later as it cuts the time he spends shaving. It is worth every penny especially if he gets to spend more time with his family and less time on grooming.

I decided on this shaver because of the JetClean system that not only washes but also lubricates, dries and chargers the shaver. The UltraTrack head has three tracks providing a close shave and up to 60 minutes of shaving time (approximately 20 days)! I especially love that it can be used for a dry or wet shave.

So if you are looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift…look no further! This gift is seriously the best gift for your husband, dad, grandfather or father-in-law in your life! Happy early Father’s Day to all you amazing dads!

Look out for my post Father’s Day review post on the Philips Norelco shaver 8800!

My #LittleVictories

As a SAHM, it is the little things that make my #LitteVictories like having enough time to take a shower while my son is napping, having extra energy to do the laundry AND fold it…if I’m lucky put it away too.  But it is so worth it to watch our now 18 month old grow, learn, and discover new things. He is now learning to eat with a fork and spoon on his own, say more words, help mommy clean, going on a slide on his own – it is truly the #LittleVictories in our life that make it so special.

 

With baby #2 on the way in a few short months, I am reminded of my breastfeeding journey with our son. It was a struggle with latching issues and mastitis but it was thanks to my supportive husband that I was able to get through it and it is one of the greatest accomplishments and proudest mommy moments. It was also thanks to social media that I was able to connect with other moms, lactation consultants and Bravado Designs to get the help and encouragement I needed. A few months after having our son, I learned about Bravado Designs on Facebook…and seriously, THANK GOODNESS! I literally live in my Essential Nursing Tanks. I ended up getting one for every day of the week because then I had something to wear even if I didn’t do laundry. They are so comfortable and never stretch out but still show off your beautiful body. I’ve tried a few other nursing tanks and the clasps are not good or they lose their shape…but not Bravado Designs. When I had my son almost two years ago, they only had white, brown, black and a few special colors. I’m loving their newest color, Mykonos Blue! And if you are in search of a  nursing bra look no further. The Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra is amazing!!! So soft and comfortable – it is definitely the best purchase you can make for yourself post-baby!
