MomBrandLove is the newest category on this blog. This is in awe of mompreneurs who lovingly put a lot of effort in their business along with juggling tasks for kids, husband, the home and everything in between! I hope that my blog will be an avenue for other moms to discover mom-made products. Moms support moms, yeah!
I met Mommy MJ in a playgroup where both our kids were enrolled. Even then, I knew she was something else, because aside from being a hands-on mom to Aio, she was also working as a night-shift nurse. I think we made a connection because we were both breastfeeding moms. I love how breastfeeding makes moms closer! She says that even before giving birth, breastfeeding was her only option to nourish her child. And up to now, she’s breastfeeding her second-born.
Registered Nanay is MJ’s fourth baby (the first one being their cat!). This business came about because she had to resign from her post as a nurse because of yaya problems (we’ve all been there!) Baking has been her hobby since she was young and to incorporate it into her breastfeeding advocacy is combining passion and purpose in one. And if you want a guarantee that her lactation treats work, MJ has been awarded as the top breastmilk donor in the hospital she was working for!
My favorites are the Banana Nutella Muffins and Cheese Muffins. They look like the usual pastries but with the power to increase breastmilk, without the bitter aftertaste. It is so good that one time, a helper served it to my FIL’s guests and they finished it! Of course, no harm was done to them as it is safe to eat for everyone!
I like the idea of the Milky Bites – a no-bake lactation treat that you’ll just have to mix for yourself! Perfect for those travelling or as a gift to a new breastfeeding momma! Prices range from P300- P450, which is not that expensive. And given that it’s from the kitchen of a wondermom, you know you’re getting your money’s worth!
Do you know of other mom-run brands that I can write about? Send me details at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to know more moms to support!
