Three Newborn Must-haves from a Third-time Mama

Three newborn must-haves for sleep and everyday. As a mama of three, you'd think I would have all the answers, but with a new baby, there's a lot rediscover. These are a few of my favorites for Lilah at 2 months old.

3 Stylish Outfits for Every Phase of Motherhood

3 Stylish Outfits for Every Phase of Motherhood

Three looks for three different stages of your motherhood journey: from the second trimester, to nursing, to toddler mom. When we set out to create Of An Origin, I knew early on that I wanted a brand that would work for this new phase of life I’d found myself in. I’d just had my second daughter. I wasn't a newbie anymore - I now had a clearer picture of what motherhood looked and felt like.

New Mom Tips from Linda Szmulewitz: Newborn Sleep & New Mom Guru

New Mom Tips from Linda Szmulewitz: Newborn Sleep & New Mom Guru

When I became a mama, I had no idea how much I would change, and how little I would know. I was in awe of everything my sweet girl did, was obsessive over her naps, feedings, and felt guilty if I took a shower and came back to her awake from a nap and crying for me. 

Becoming a mama changes you in ways you couldn’t imagine. You will never have all the answers, no matter how many Google searches you make or how many mom forums you follow, but with a tribe of mamas going through the same experience, and experts like Linda, you can feel supported and more prepared!

Breastfeeding in Style for Every Occassion

Breastfeeding in Style for Every Occassion

Of an Origin is all about supporting new moms during their journeys, so we designed flexible nursing-friendly pieces that effortlessly transition from lounge to work, and from daycare drop-off, and to dinner dates. I felt like I needed pieces that worked for me during the early days at home with my baby, but I didn't want to overhaul my wardrobe with pieces that would only work for lounging, and only during this fleeting, yet all-consuming time in my life. I needed those same pieces to be elevated enough to work when I returned to the office. 

We designed Of an Origin's Everywhere Capsule to work for you from the fourth trimester, fifth trimester, and beyond.

Breastfeeding Stylishly - Essentials for Building a Sustainable Breastfeeding Wardrobe

Each time I stepped towards my closet, there was a running commentary scrolling through my mind like the tickers at the bottom of a TV news show: “Can I nurse in this?” ... “Can I pump discreetly in this?” ... “How bad will milk show?” … “Is It comfortable” … “Will it even fit my postpartum body?”

Finding a stylish breastfeeding wardrobe as you transition from the early postpartum period, to finding stylish work-friendly pumping-friendly clothing is a frustrating experience that many new moms find themselves navigating while also navigating a new identity and caring for a newborn baby.
