mimijumi's blog: Better Feeding for all Babies

Does Facebook Hate Mom Bods?

May 10, 2016

 

At mimijumi, we make the world’s best baby bottle that looks, feels and functions just like a breast, so we’ve become accustomed to the censors at Facebook rejecting photos of our baby bottles. We hope it is because the Facebook electronic algorithms pick up the skin-like tone and texture of our bottles and confuse them for real breasts, not because a Facebook engineer needs to get out more often.

Adoptive Mom Builds Bonds through Baby's Feeding

April 12, 2016

 

Becoming a mother through adoption has been an incredible journey. My husband and I adopted two boys, five weeks and two cities apart. They’re our version of twins. Choosing this route (or sometimes, this route choosing you) obviously means that some things that come naturally in biological parent-child relationships require sacrifice and a little creativity. Having always wanted to become a mother, I held onto images of what that would look like -- pregnancy, birth, nursing. With our boys coming to us through adoption, I had to let go of those images and allow new ones of an adoptive family to enter in. I also had to let go of feelings of inadequacy and embrace a different style. But that didn’t mean I didn’t grieve the loss of breastfeeding and physical bonding, it was still real, and that’s OK. I yearned to physically bond with my baby; I just had to think beyond the boob!

Jessica Shortall: Moms Going Back to Work

April 03, 2016

Dear Working Mom About to Go Back to Work After Having a Baby,

I know what you’re thinking. You’re going back to work, probably criminally soon after having a baby, and you’re suuuuper excited. Not only do you get to leave your baby and not fit into your work clothes…if you’re breastfeeding, you get a whole additional prize package!

  • Leaking through your work clothes while talking to Tim from Accounting? Check.

  • Talking to the person who signs your paycheck about your breasts and a bodily fluid? Check.

  • Explaining to your co-workers why you have to leave every meeting halfway through? Check.

Awkward conversations are THE staple of being a breastfeeding, working mom. I’m here with my top three tips on how to survive them.

Building Bonds with Baby through Knowledge

March 22, 2016

 As moms, we all want the best for our babes, and whether we physically bore our kids or welcomed them through adoption, healthy attachment is a priority for us. In my case, we adopted two boys five weeks apart. Attachment through feeding was definitely a priority of mine for my boys, but I was also thinking about building bonds in other ways and the challenges our unique family faced. We’re white, they’re biracial and African American, respectively. So not only was I concerned about bonding with my boys as babies -- after all, I didn’t birth them and I wasn’t breastfeeding them -- forming healthy attachment with them as future boys and men was on my heart, too. How would our different ethnicities create a natural barrier? Would our choice of open adoption mean they’d be “too” bonded to their birth parents and thus take away from our connection?
