I never knew that having a child nowadays can be so complicated. From the time that I knew that I was pregnant and being the OC person that I was, I wanted to know everything that there is to know about pregnancy, breastfeeding, weaning, etc. I’m on my 23rd week of pregnancy and I am still overwhelmed by a lot of things. We were looking at the different products in a baby store, just recently, and my oh my, there is a product for everything!

I came across this cool online store called Hatch & Latch. This store sells unique products for pregnant and nursing moms and also, products for their kids. I have certain brands from their shop that I am interested on buying.

One of the brands is Milk Bands. These bands are made to be ‘nursing bracelets’. It helps nursing moms remember which breast she last used to feed her baby by simply turning the bracelet inside-out. I’ve heard stories that you become quite forgetful after the surgery. True or not, this is a cute bracelet to have! :) Each band is at Php 400 each.

Right now, I’m really looking at this brand, Belly Buds (Php 2,880.00). I’ve heard a lot of advice about playing music while pregnant. I’ve heard a lot of people tell me to play classical music or to talk to my child often even while still inside my womb. This got me interested to check out Belly Buds.

The other brand that I think will be essential for nursing moms is Motherlove. The products of Motherlove are also see in the Hatch & Latch online store. According to the site, Motherlove is the “first herbal personal care and supplement line specifically designed for pregnant and breastfeeding women”. The brand was conceived in 1990. They use certified organic ingredients designed to nurture, soothe and heal women on their all-important journey of nurturing life.

The products that got me interested were:

Motherlove Nipple Cream (Php 550)

They say that all of the ingredients used for the nipple cream are safe for the baby. It, also, does not need to be washed off prior to breastfeeding. It’s made from 100% certified organic ingredients and has zero toxins.

Motherlove also has products (capsules and liquid formulations) that increase a mother’s breastmilk. These are made from 100% organic ingredients and these galactagogues are safe to use during nursing.

These are some of the things that I’d love to buy and check out from Hatch & Latch. For those who want to check out their other products, please visit http://www.hatchandlatch.com or check out their facebook page at Hatch & Latch Facebook page.

Love lots,
