Ideas for Spring & Summer Fun with your little one!

April 25, 2012

This is one of our favorite times of year, and not just because we’ve brought out our new bright and beautiful spring nursingwear collection; but because it’s a time to re-enter the “outside” world after a long winter.

We can imagine how excited you must be to leave the house with your little one, and introduce her to the spring air that is so fresh.

We have compiled a fun list of entertaining and stimulating activities for you and your baby to enjoy together.

*Balls ~ Babies love playing with balls. Let her roll it, or you can bounce it and let her watch in amazement.

*Bubbles ~ Bubbles evoke springtime, and they fascinate babies. Blow a bunch and watch baby try to catch them.

*Nature ~ Collect an assortment of pine cones, leaves, grass, and sticks, and allow baby to explore the different textures with her hands and feet. (No mouths!) Or lie very little ones on their belly for outdoor tummy time.

*Water play ~ Splish! Splash! Babies love to play in the water. With just a few inches and a bunch of toys (think boats, cups, sponges, and funnels from the Dollar Store), you’re set with an activity that may even last more than 3 minutes.

*Baby swings ~ Take your baby to the park and push them in the swing! It’s a great way for them to explore movement and feel the fresh breeze on their bodies.

*Sandbox play ~ It’s a “love it or leave it” kind of activity, but for those mamas that can handle sand all over and for babies that can sit up, allow him/her to explore in a sandbox. Again, with a range of toys (bucket, shovel, funnel, cups), it’s a great sensory destination.

*Finger paints ~ If you’re Type A and worry about giving your baby non-toxic fingerpaints in the house, it’s a great time of year to let them explore outdoors. Get a big sheet of craft paper, let her make a “masterpiece” and hose her off afterwards. Clean-up is a breeze.

*Animals~ Visit a local pond and feed the fish and ducks. Or, if you have a petting zoo in your area, your baby may enjoy strolling around and touching a few animals. Or, of course, it’s a great time for the zoo.

It’s a time to enliven your child’s senses and encourage her development by presenting her with a variety of new outdoor activities. All of these activities will help promote language acquisition and allow her to use her senses in a novel way: smelling the flowers, hearing birds chirp, seeing the sights that surround, and feeling the grass (outdoor tasting not suggested).

As you know, we love receiving photos of you and your family. So once you’ve had some time to explore the activities above, send us your family favorites!

Introducing New Loungewear!

April 19, 2012

Our new Versatile 2-piece tank top lounge set made a grand entrance earlier this week! Designed after the successful Versatile 2-piece lounge set, this cozy style is great for maternity and nursing.

The scoop-neck empire top makes breastfeeding convenient and easy, while the yoga-style pants are great when worn as a set and when paired with other nursing tops. The wide waistband offers comfort under the belly during pregnancy and won’t cause irritation following a c-section.

Moms, treat yourself to that go-to summer set: for sitting in the car during your older child’s camp carpool; for your favorite exercise class; for lunch with your best pal; or for that rare moment when you are able to relax on the couch with your sweet little one.

Don’t need it for yourself? Buy it as a new-mom gift for a friend!

Offered at $62 ~ Shop today!

Comparison Shopping: Spring 2012

April 4, 2012

Once again, Milk has launched a variety of spring styles with trends that cross the boundaries of nursingwear. We’re showing nursing tops and nursing dresses with shirring, crossovers, ruffles, cowls and knots – all details found throughout the collections of other non-maternity and nursingwear retailers.

Here are the results of our comparison shopping analysis and some of the trends you’ll want to capture in your own wardrobe.

*Side Shirring ~ This simple detail adorns the sides of many spring basics offering a classic and flattering look. From Milk’s Side-shirred nursing top to others found at Target, Old Navy and Garnet Hill, this top is an essential.

*Tiered Ruffles ~ Tiered ruffles have reappeared this season as a feminine and soft look that can be dressed up or down. Milk’s Tiered ruffle nursing dress is a hot style that we’ll be restocking in mid-April! Email us to be added to the waiting list…

*Knot-front Tops ~ Knot-front tops have made a grand entrance into collections across the retail markets. We’ve seen it at countless major retailers in a range of hot hues. Milk’s Contemporary knot top is an easy fit for nursing moms with front access offered in two jewel tones (red and blue).

*Cowl-neck Tops ~ They are hot! Found in sleeveless, short-sleeve and long-sleeve varieties, cowl-necks are making big waves this spring. So much so that Milk is offering two versions: Cowl-neck nursing top with ¾ sleeves and a short-sleeve version.

Find these trends and more at Milk Nursingwear, where you don’t have to compromise your sense of style to nurse your little one.
