When the snow began to fall here in the Canadian Rockies, I immediately started to think about what I could do outdoors with my baby girl. Whatever we did, she’d have to be able to ride on me or in a sled or Chariot. I would also have to able to keep her warm. While I would be working up a sweat walking, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, she’d be sitting still and getting cold.
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.
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.
