We have too much breast milk

May 15, 2008

We have been throwing breast milk away for months now as we have way too much.  We spoke with our pediatrician today who recommended we let urbanMamas know!  I can supply my health records.  My baby is now 6 months.  Let me know if you have a need, we'd be happy to help out a mama who can't supply her babe with breast milk.  Please email senna_won@yahoo.com

ONE MOM'S "HACK" LAUNCHES A BUSINESS

April 05, 2008

Hello Fellow Mamas-

Allow me to introduce myself as the Creator, Chief Schlepper and Head Mom of a new Portland based company started by… me. The short story is I am a mom, I created a product, and I found a way to “mass-produce” my product for sale in the market place.

I created Arm Bib sleeve protectors for my own daughter (Eleanor) when she was first learning to feed herself. I believe in a little independent exploration, at least enough to let Eleanor dive-in and dig around. But, for my own sanity, when she was first self-feeding I needed a way to cut down on the crates of laundry…her shirt sleeves were caked in food after every meal! So I created the Arm Bib - a soft, super stretchy little sleeve that easily slips on over your baby's shirt and sweater sleeves. They let you leave the mess behind at the table. It turns out they also happen to be very handy for the Three-Year-Old-Eleanor's messy art projects. We slip-on a pair of Arm Bibs with her art-smock and let her have at it. They help hold her sleeves out of the way so she can get to work without minding where her elbows go.

Thoughtfully Produced

Arm Bib sleeves are made in North Carolina in a knitting mill that has been family-owned and in business since 1932. They are American made, start to finish (even the cotton is American grown). We paid extra to source our product responsibly. Our packaging was printed right here in Portland by a locally owned business, and you’ll notice that it contains minimal plastic. 

Local Retailers

Arm Bib sleeves come in cute (if slightly irreverent) colors inspired by food stains (ex: “Smeared Avocado” = bright green). They sell for $7.99/pair and can be found at Generations, Milagros and Bella Lulu’s boutiques. They can also be purchased online and for a limited time if you buy 2 pairs they will be shipped right to your door for FREE -- consider it a special home-delivery! www.armbibs.com

Jogging stroller, high chair, breast pump for sale

May 08, 2007

Sarah has a few items she's looking to offload:

One jogging stroller blue doesn't have a sun shade but works great, just never ended up using it.

Ikea high chair. We love it: it's low profile, wood (besides the tray of course), has a lap belt, you could just put it right up to the table with an older kid (like a restaurant one). Unfortunately our kiddo needs a five point restraint system to let him relax enough to eat, otherwise it's all about the fun of escape. It's been used so it's not in perfect shape but it still looks quite nice.

Medela Breast pump: Lactina model double pumping system. Has manual pump. Used it once about a year ago then to get our guy going with nursing then didn't need it again. It's still in the box and everything.

Make an offer. sagu14850@yahoo.com
