Nurse Purse Giveaway

Who says you can’t have beauty and function in the same bag?  That’s the idea behind Adrienne’s design of her Nurse Purse diaper bags.  But way more than diapers bags, Nurse Purse bags are a purse, diaper bag, pumping bag, and computer bag all rolled into one. So you can go to work with your laptop, breast pump, and anything else you need in the same purse, and look really cute doing it too!  Beauty and function.  Welcome new TLB sponsor Nurse Purse by reading the following Q & A we had with Adrienne, make sure to enter the giveaway (for you or a friend!) and take advantage of the 20% discount available to Leakies!

TLB:  What would you like TLB readers to know about Nurse Purse?

Adrienne:  I think every new mom has that moment when they think “I wish this existed!” or “Someone should invent this.” For me that moment was about trying to continue successfully breastfeeding my son after my maternity leave ended – it was just so challenging for so many reasons, and the logistics of lugging my pump around did not help!

I certainly didn’t set out to become an entrepreneur, but it was something I felt so passionately about, and still do. I saw a need for something that would make life easier for myself, and other pumping moms out there, and I couldn’t rest until I saw it through.

TLB:  What inspired you to start Nurse Purse?

Adrienne:  The Nurse Purse truly was born out of necessity – as a working, commuting mom, I could not manage lugging at least 3 separate bags around the city. It was hard enough going back to work after a terribly short maternity leave, but carrying that black bag was the icing on the cake. It made me feel terrible!  I knew there had to be a better way – and when all my searching came up short – I knew I had to create the solution myself. After I had solved the problem for myself, I heard from so many other women who had the same issues – I spoke with so many moms to come up with something that would make people’s lives easier. I wanted to make something functional but also something that would people would actually look forward to carrying around. The moms I have met and continue to meet have been an amazing inspiration.

TLB:  What is your favorite feature of the bags you make?

Adrienne: From a functional perspective I love that there is room to keep everything including the plug and tubes, all set up so you are ready to go each time – it used to drive me CRAZY that I would have to fish around for the plug (that was always tangled !) every single time.

From a design perspective, I love the photo sleeve so you can always have a photo of your baby close at hand for some ‘pumping inspiration’, and I love that the bright, cheerful prints are actually fun to carry.

TLB:  It’s tough running your own business.  How do you balance your work and family lives?  

Adrienne:  It’s a constant challenge. The hardest thing is resisting the temptation to sneak in a little work here and there, because technology makes it so easy! So you just need to relax and know that those phone calls are not going to get made, and those emails will have to wait – enjoy the moment you’re in.

TLB:  What is your favorite breastfeeding tip?

Adrienne:  Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Your friendly local LC is an amazing resource! I thought I was doing ‘ok’ – but had no idea how much I didn’t know until I met with a wonderful lactation consultant who I credit with my success both with early breastfeeding and then when I had challenges after returning to work. I also had some challenges with my younger son that I didn’t have the first time around, and my LC helped me get back on track – and still going strong :)

      I love both Fern and Geo!

  77. Angela O'Brien says:

    Fern!

  78. I’ve loved these bags since I first saw them!

  79. This bag is such a great idea. I always carry a minimum of two bags (one being my medela pumping bag). The worst was at a huge conference I went to last month. There were at least three other pumping mums I saw all with the tiny pump bag over one shoulder plus another bag since you can fit anything extra in that bag. There isn’t even room for a water bottle and a decent snack and what pumping mom doesn’t need that?!

  80. Jessica says:

    I like the Fern print.

  81. I love the fern print! <3

  82. What a great idea!!
