Admit it. Most nursing bras are kind of industrial-looking. At least that is what I thought when I was shopping around for a nursing bra. I also found that while breastfeeding is natural and wonderful, it is also difficult and complex and sometimes it really hurts! The best advice I could find was to use warm compresses before nursing and cold compresses afterwards. But nobody could give me any tips for how to make the whole compress thing practical or COMFORTABLE! So, my design was patented and Nizo Wear was born. I firgured while I was at it I should make them pretty as well. Nizo Wear makes nursing bras that are de both functional and pretty. Lace and rhinestones, playful prints, shapely lines, all designed to help you feel stylish and good again.

With Memorial Day coming up I know many of us are spending more time thinking about the amazing job our US Military does for us and feeling grateful for their service. I recently read this article about Breastfeeding in the Military. I was SHOCKED with what I read. Some military members thought breastfeeding in uniform was "against military etiquette and discipline"! Now, I was a military mom who did breastfeed for a year while I served in the National Guard. I never had to do it in public as I was not deployed during my breastfeeding time BUT it made me remember the great lengths my husband and I went to in order to be discreet; which meant breastfeeding in our car on my lunch breaks and pumping in the bathroom! I think this article is well written so I just had to share! Thoughts??? Any other military moms out there?
