A Mother’s Boutique
A Mother’s Boutique offers everything a new mother or mother to be needs – from maternity clothing to breastfeeding gear, nursing bras, breast pumps and slings.
When owner Judy Masucci was a new mother, she had a difficult time finding quality nursing clothing and products that would enable her to be successful at breastfeeding.  She realized this “unmet need” was also something many other mothers also experienced. Coming from a business background, Judy decided she could use her corporate skills to develop a solution for this need. She realized that she would be able to meet her personal goals of spending more time with her son, while achieving professional goals of helping other new mothers succeed with breastfeeding. This led her to start up A Mother’s Boutique.
PROMO: Judy is offering our awesome mamas a 10% discount off all orders. Just use the promo code KOALAKIN. The code expires 12/31/14.

The HadleyStilwell clothing line was inspired by the challenge of having to look pulled-together and professional at work with little sleep and possibly no shower (!), yet also needing to quickly and discreetly pump in public places. It’s a daunting situation for new mothers, and breastfeeding is often the first thing to go.
HadleyStilwell makes it easy for busy breastfeeding mothers to get dressed in two seconds flat with coordinating designs that help you feel beautiful when breastfeeding or pumping. But it’s much larger than the clothes: Aside from no skin exposure, quick access to breasts, and wrinkle-free durable fabric, it’s about a mother’s overall wellbeing. Feeling good about breastfeeding will spill over into all aspects of your life. And that is my vision for breastfeeding mothers…
PROMO: It’s our pleasure to offer a 15% discount through the end of May on the Fleece Lounging and Co-Sleeping Top to keep you warm this winter and in perpetuity. And…it’s the perfect layer under your KoalaKin! Code: GOMOM

Snugabell Mom & Baby Gear
Snugabell designs and manufactures breastfeeding and pumping products.  Our mission is to support moms’ decision to breastfeed through education, community and beauty.  All of our products are designed for mamas who are not willing to forgo fashion for function, so they feel beautiful regardless of the last time they changed out of their PJs or had a shower! This may sound trivial in the wake of introducing a brand new person to this world, however our customers tell us that our products help them retain a little bit of “self” amongst all the baby-centric happenings of new parenthood. Snugabell works hard to enhance the breastfeeding relationship between a mother and her babe and we hope that our products continue to help thousands more dyads succeed in reaching their personal breastfeeding goals.

Emily Kane is the founder of Milkmakers. She created Milkmakers cookies because she needed them.
Emily went back to work after here first daughter was born and found herself in a new situation — trying to manage work life, home life, and fitting in the time to pump during an already busy day. Her milk supply started to go down and she worried that she wouldn’t be able to provide enough milk for her baby.
When a lactation consultant first told her about lactation cookies, it seemed too good to be true: She could eat delicious cookies AND increase her milk supply? To her surprise, she saw an immediate boost in her milk production.
Lactation cookies can help promote an abundant supply of breast milk. The result: a well-fed baby and a happy family.
PROMO: Emily is so excited to offer 10% off all their products with the code: KOALAKIN. (Limit one order per customer. Offer valid through December 31st, 2014)

In 2005, working mother Sari Davidson created the very first SippiGrip in San Ramon, California. Davidson became frustrated when her 1 year old son, Jake, would throw his sippy cup to the floor from his highchair, stroller, and car seat. Davidson was constantly picking up the cups that were either getting dirty or lost. Necessity really was the mother of invention; hence, the SippiGrip was born!
BooginHead is a term Davidson’s family used when one of their kids would do something they knew they shouldn’t, did it anyways, and you couldn’t help but laugh – they were being such a BooginHead! Davidson and BooginHead are committed to bringing products to on-the-go parents to help solve the BooginHead moments in life and make your life easier!
PROMO:  Currently, Booginhead is offering 20% off their Pink Polka Dot and Asher Argyle PaciGrips
