  1. Loved this podcast! I don’t always have time to listen to them, but I was curious about the topic. I didn’t have much success nursing Kate and we quit after 6 weeks. I loved your recommendations for books. I never read anything the first time around. I assumed it should be easy. Women have been doing it for EVER. Hopefully, I’ll be able to be a little more prepared the next time around. Thanks for the advice! And, I love that Jamie giggled through most of this:) Too funny!

  2. This was such a great podcast! I wanted to send a link for another option for hands free nursing that doesn’t involve having to cut a hole in your $50 nursing bra:

    I just keep the little ties on my pump flanges (or whatever they’re called) and they’re ready for me when I want to pump.

    Also, I totally hear Jamie on the large breast issues when nursing. That’s why I made my own nursing cover to have for my second, I felt like the standard sized nursing covers barely covered me and was always worried about giving someone a show!

  3. Wow, that’s a great tutorial!!

    I was always able to use my sleep bra that I got at Target as a hands-free pumping bra as well. It fit perfectly for pumping! It’s nice that there are options out there that aren’t costly and don’t involve cutting up an expensive bra. For the record, the nursing bra I cut up was a total cheapie bra 🙂
