Breastfeeding life...

can be a rough one. Like so many things as an expecting mother, you go into it with expectations. You might plan, you might read books or articles, but inevitably you hold the baby in your arms and probably say what most every other new mom in the world says. "Ok, now what?" With my first son, the nurse is standing there watching me. I'm minutes post labor and already I feel the panic I'm being judged. "Did she just see me poke him in the eye with my nipple?" 

Then you get home and probably ask yourself where all the nice help is from the hospital when you have questions. When starting my company, the number one focus I wanted to get across was this- THERE IS NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL. We are women, strong and amazing, but we are not perfect. And most certainly, the baby we just spent hours giving birth to may not perfectly latch and then wink at you as if to say, "I got this." So first up was helping mothers who have made it past the hardest newborn days. I'm sitting with my second son, phone in hand ready to read an article while my now 5 month old feeds, when he yet again decides to pull on my hair. When you're months in to breastfeeding, I think most moms would agree that there is a lot of time sitting. You think you have things figured out but then your baby decides they have better things to do than just eat. BusyTabs were created then and there when I had enough of him unlatching and rolling around. I honestly created it originally as just a fix for myself. I started playing around with my nursing bras until the early form of BusyTabs was created. Like some sort of magic, he laid on my lap, reached up to the tab, and ate peacefully. I was sure it was a one time deal. But somehow this amazingly easy nursing session continued again and again. 

So finally, thank you for coming to my new company's page. It has taken A LOT of time and effort to get to where we are today. And BusyTabs is just a start. We have another product in development for mothers that will help from birth. I pray I make it to the point of releasing our next product. We will only get there with your support! So thank you.
