Mommy hook

Travel Boppy

I don't know if any of these were invented by a mom, but thank you, whoever you are lol

EDIT: I've addded my Medela double electric breast pump and moby wrap to my list. :-) Thanks ladies.

whats the mommy hook? to hang your purse in the bathroom to keep it off the floor? I've never used that or a boppy. binki clips are nice though. and right now I am loving how pampers swaddlers have that little line to show if baby is wet or not. Though yesterday, baby leaked right out the side all over his clothes twice and missed the line completely....

Yeah, that's happened to us a couple times lol! The mommy hook is a hook to hang your purse or diaper bag to the stroller, so I suppose it can keep it off the bathroom floor if you take your stroller in with you.
I hate it when a stall doesn't have a hook, 3/4 of the front bathroom stall doors at our Wal-Mart don't have one! What the heck are people hanging on them that's heavy enough to break them off?!
By the way, if you're breast feeding, travel boppys are a godsend!

I LOVE my boppy pillow! And I also really like those little mesh bags with the handles that you can put food into. I put frozen fruit in it and it worked wonders when my youngest was teething.

It's just so much easier and more comfortable in my opinion to use a boppy when breastfeeding. I used to think stuff like that was a luxery (it kind of is), but I didn't work (went back to school) and didn't have money for stuff like that when I had my first son.

I haven't used any of those. I keep my bag under the stroller or on me. I have a hook thingy to keep my bag off the floor, but it goes on a table. Like at a restaurant. I bought a travel boppy thinking the extra cuddle would keep my son from deign distracted while nip, but it didn't help. Both kids took a pacifier at some point, but we never used clips. They just went in my pocket while we were walking or if they threw it. My favorite thing is adjustable strap tank tops. I never liked them before I start breastfeeding, I preferred normal tanks. But it's so easy to just tighten the strap back up after nursing instead of stretching out all of my necklines.
