Auntie Jill's Breast Plushie Review
If you are looking for a cute gift or toy for a breastfeeding mama and baby, be sure to check out Auntie Jill's Breast Plushie. The Breast Plushie is basically a soft little "stuffed breast" with a little smiley face and a microfiber "nipple." Here's my review and photo of the Plushie.

Breastfeeding with Nipple Shields
Nipple shields are a somewhat controversial breastfeeding aid. Some consider them just another artificial nipple, but many (me included!) owe ultimately successful breastfeeding to their use. Learn more about nipple shields and if they can help you.
Correcting Lopsided Breasts While Breastfeeding
If you have developed significantly lopsided breasts or uneven milk supply during breastfeeding, it doesn't have to stay that way! For many women, lopsided breasts can be corrected with careful management of milk supply.
