The Gift that’s Bringing Sexy Back

It’s easy for nursing moms to think of boobs solely as milk makers. But remember before we were mamas? When we used to wear sexy bras just because? We know your boobs spend most of their time feeding babies these days, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still dress them up.

The lingerie experts over at Journelle agree, and have mamas on their mind this holiday season. Journelle just started carrying maternity intimates from our favorite designer brands, including the best bras for pregnancy, nursing & pumping, and post-nursing. We’re talking bras that will make your partner’s jaw drop, but ya know, still do the heavy lifting.

Journelle doesn’t believe in sacrificing style for support. And we know mamas can use all the support they can get! So show your friend, your mom or yourself a little love with Journelle’s beautiful -- but still totally practical -- lingerie. Because every woman deserves to feel amazing through all moments of motherhood.

Here are some of our faves for pregnancy, breastfeeding and beyond:

For Pregnancy: Simone Perele Amour

We love the delicate beauty of the Simone Perele Amour. Its 3D spacer technology gives you room to grow, because if this is your first pregnancy, trust us: those babies are gonna grow!

For Nursing: Dairy Fairy Ayla Nursing and Pumping Bra

The aptly named Dairy Fairy Ayla Nursing and Pumping Bra is the sexiest nursing bra we’ve ever seen...even with two pumps attached to it! Wear it to pump, nurse, or do something totally non-baby related (wink wink).

For Post-Nursing and Momlife: Anais Low Balconette Bra

When everything’s just a little looser than you remember, the experts at Journelle suggest reassessing your bra size, then treat yourself to something that’s as sexy as it is supportive. The Anais Low Balconette Bra is the perfect way to take back your body and indulge your feminism.

Daytime naps might last just a few short hours, but they can affect all 24 hours of a child's day. Naps can improve a child's mood and reduce fussiness, crying, whining and tantrums. Studies show that children who nap daily also get sick less often, grow taller and are less likely to be obese when they grow up. Naps enhance attention span and brain development.

Naps can also help make up for any shortage in nighttime sleep. Even a one hour shortage in overall sleep hours can have a negative effect on a child—compromising alertness and brain function and increasing fussiness and fatigue.


There are many ideas for helping a child to take a nap, but the best idea in the world may not work for you if the solution doesn't address the reason that your child won't nap. There is not just one reason that babies and young children refuse to nap—there are hundreds of different reasons.
