On my first few hikes with my newborn, I faced a slight dilemma: what to wear so that I could be comfortable while on the move, but also free to nurse wherever I needed to. So, I went on a search for nursing tops for the active mama. Thankfully, I bumped into Momzelle online and they had a top that was the perfect fit (in more ways than one): the Motion Tank.
This time it’s an item I may not have picked out on my own, but I am sure glad to have in my closet! The Acadia Maternity and Nursing Poncho is just as it sounds – a maternity and nursing poncho! This “sweater” tents over the body, but has buttons sewn in so that you can create pseudo-sleeves. The poncho is thick and fleecy – just perfect for those cold winter days or, as as see up here in the Canadian Rockies, cold summer nights!
I have had the Trinity Maternity Hiking Pant in my possession since the beginning of my pregnancy. And while I’m almost eight weeks postpartum, I have waited until now to post a review because these pants, like many products from Mountain Mama, are made to be worn before, during and after pregnancy. I thought I’d put that claim to the test.
Back in November I was chatting with a friend about how hard it was to find a jacket that fits during pregnancy. Not only was I looking for something that would fit over my belly, but something that I could also feel good in. I was on a quest to keep up my outdoor lifestyle (to some degree) and felt that having the right gear would keep me extra motivated. At the very least I wanted to stay warm and avoid having my zipper undo from the bottom up…again.
