Got Some Catching Up to Do…

Time goes by and I have been neglectful in posting to my blog. I am making an early New Year’s resolution to post all of the great things happening at Milkies that we work so hard for and are so proud of!
May - Milkies turned 3 years old as did my little Henry. We celebrated the momentous occasions at a beach house on the Oregon Coast.
As we enter our third year we look back on the experience of growing a business with a focus on helping mothers answer the question, “Why breastfeed?” We try to help mothers, families and employers understand the importance of breastfeeding. Everyone has the obligation to support and encourge the women around them to make the most informed choices for themselves their new babies.
June - The Grand Opening of Eco Baby Gear was a great event. Portland is consistantly rated as the “greenest” city in America and we have the best breastfeeding rates in the US- environmentally friendly products for breastfeeding mothers ( like the Milk-Saver ) are always popular.
I met some other parents based in Portland with Eco-friendly baby products. Check out Eco Baba (http://www.eco-baba.com/) the industry leader in stainless steel baby bottles and sippy cups. The founders of Eco-Baba were concerned about the level of bpa in their children’s cups. They started Eco-Baba because they wanted a safe and stylish alternative to plastic cups. Check out their website- it’s a very cool product!
Peter (daddy and co-founder of Eco-Baba) and I took time for a photo op at the Eco Baby Gear grand opening. Eco baby Gear is a great place to shop and take classes. If you live in Portland, stop by their store front at 2122 Division or visit their website at http://www.ecobabygear.com/.

Got something to say? Go for it!
