I'm been breastfeeding my little guy for over 8 months now. I'm not gonna lie, the first month or two was not easy. Whewwwwwwwwwww not easy at ALL!! But after the awkwardness and difficulty and pain passed, it has been super duper easy peasy and I feel so lucky to be able to do it. I work at home, so I have only pumped a handful of times, and I have a tiny stash in the freezer for "just in case" scenarios. Nobody told me how to store milk, I had to google the time limit, but other than that I just kinda winged it on labeling them. Here's my stash:
Not high tech, and definitely not aesthetically pleasing! But, I'm not doing this on a daily basis like so many moms out there are. For those moms, I would love to introduce a really cool and cute way to label your milk (and formula) - meet Eepples MilkCharms!!
You dial in the day or the hour (on opposite sides of each charm), hang it on the bottle, and you're done! No more messing around with tape or sticky notes or guessing which bottle to grab next. They're BPA/phthalate free, made of polypropylene and silicone, dishwasher safe, recyclable, and UL tested. And so darn cute!!

And because you must be as curious as I was - what is up with the name "Eepples"?? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Do you remember that Raffi song "I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas. I like to ate, ate, ate aypples and baynaynays. I like to eet, eet, eet eepples and beeneenees"? Well, that's where it's from! And now that song is stuck in your head for the rest of the week... You're welcome! lol ^_^ (For some more Raffi & Full House nostalgia, enjoy!)
