8 Important Stress-Management Tips for All Nurses

Nursing is considered a stressful profession due to complex job needs and demands. High expectations, minimal authority, and excessive responsibilities are highlighted as the primary stressors in nursing. Stress among nursing students and practitioners may be one of the most underrated yet significant problems in the field. It surfaces in various aspects of their professional and personal life.

According to the International Council of Nurses (ICN), the annual average expenses of job-related stress are approximately $200 and $300 million in the US, and 90 percent of nurses’ medical issues are associated with job stress. Stress among nursing professionals may influence their quality of life and the quality of patient care.

Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap Review + Discount

I have always been shy about nursing in public. I have large breasts and I don't want a whole lot of skin showing. It's a personal preference. I would never judge the way someone else chooses to feed their baby, this is just for my body. I know that I SHOULD be able to feed my baby whenever he needs to be fed, including out in public. But the reality is that I don’t want unwelcome attention.

I received complimentary products to provide this review. All opinions are my own.


When is a nursing cover not a nursing cover? Answer ... when it's a Boho Mama Breastfeeding Wrap. You can literally wear it straight out of its stylish packaging. It's easy to wash and dry and it keeps its shape. You can carry this wrap in your purse or diaper bag because it folds up really small and does not crease. My sister-in-law is due with her second baby this month and I'm making a breastfeeding care package for her. I have decided to include this beautiful wrap in it.

NursingBraExpress.com Review

I'm a nursing mama right now. 4 Months breastfeeding milestone! :D
So if Christmas was in July, what I would REALLY want is a great nursing bra at a great price. And NursingBraExpress.com has all the go to things a breastfeeding mom needs.

I received a Molded Cotton Nursing Bra by QT Intimates for review.
This is NBE's best selling nursing bra. It's comfortable, supportive, and very soft. I wear this nursing bra almost every day! It is perfect for any occasion and keeps me cool with the breathable cotton/spandex material. It has quick-release one-hand nursing clasps on each cup which is VERY important so you can have access to the girls when you are in a hurry. I wear a larger size and so it has wider straps to help support the girls as well. You can wear this bra through both maternity and nursing. There's no underwire which is a plus for me, because I HATE underwire. It's also not padded, which is also great for me.

NursingBraExpress.com was amazing to work with and made sure I got exactly what I needed. Shipping was quick as well. They have so many other cute things to choose from as well, including super cute nipple hats for the littles and reusable nursing pads.

Make sure to follow NursingBraExpress.com on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram for more product info and fun giveaways!
Although I received free products to provide this review, all opinions are my own. I also only recommend products that I feel would be a good fit for my readers. If you would like to see your baby product reviewed or featured on Nanny to Mommy, please contact Diana.n.chastain@gmail.com.

Why I Like Nursing Canopies {Booby Trapper Review & Giveaway, Ends 6/3}

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

I was never a fan of nursing canopies (or covers) with my daughter. We never really used one because we were at home so much, so she never got use to it. So I was always very uncomfortable about nursing in public. I still prefer a good nursing shirt and that's it, but what if you aren't wearing a proper nursing shirt?


I am all for if you are comfortable not covering yourself. You shouldn't have to! You are just feeding your baby. I wish I had that confidence. I feel the need to make others around me feel comfortable and when they are people who you are with, that need is probably greater. It shouldn't be this way, but this is my issue. Hopefully one day I'll get over it.
