For those of you wanting to be surprised or those that just don’t want the traditional pink or blue, neutral base colors are the way to go in your nursery. Adding a bright pop of color to any room will help to bring it to life. Don’t hesitate to use a teal or blue wall in a baby girl’s room, and then add orange accents for interest.
These paint swatches are great gender-neutral options, leaving you with tons of design paths to explore to personalize baby’s space.
All colors here can be found at Sherwin Williams in their various collections.

Balancing work and the desire to continue breastfeeding can be a challenge. If you live in a state that has pro-breastfeeding laws in place and requires employers make allowances and provide support for nursing moms, consider yourself lucky.
The two most important things to determine when pumping at your work place – the Where and the When.
- Get on a schedule and pump before your breasts get full. Try to pump the same number of times you have been breastfeeding at home. This is typically every 2-3 hours for babies under six months and 3-4 hours for those older than six months.
- Do you best to utilize breaks and your lunch hour to accommodate your pumping. Be sure to speak with your employer ahead of time, so expectations are set up front.
- If you have a double-sided electric pump, the time away should take around 20-30 minutes including set-up and clean up.
- Hopefully, there is already a designated space for breastfeeding mothers — not the bathroom. If there is no pre-appointed spot, look for somewhere both private and comfortable.
- Make sure the space you use has a door that locks. As a last resort, hang out a sign alerting your coworkers.
- Have a conversation with either your boss or HR to hammer out the details so there are no misunderstandings.
We recommended you have the following 5 items on hand:
- Your breast pump and accessories – a double-electric breast pump works best
- An anti-bacterial soap and 2 soft cloths for washing and drying
- A cooler with ice packs for milk storage, if there is no refrigerator available in your office
- Comfort items such as a photo of baby and water to hydrate
- Breast pads in case of leakage

ingredients (serves 2 dozen)
- 2 cups old-fashioned oats
- ½ cup ground or milled flaxseed
- 3 tablespoons brewer’s yeast (debittered or unbittered)
- 1 cup peanut butter or almond butter
- ½ cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add all ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Mix on low speed until mixture is well combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
