If you are getting ready to be a new mom and you are planning on breastfeeding your baby, there are essential nursing apparel items that you will need. You will need to plan accordingly, as not all moms are in the same situation and need the same things. For the most part though, there are certain items that you will want and need no matter what situation you are in.

The first thing you need to decide is whether you are going to buy the things yourself or include them in your baby shower registry. I advise including at least some of the main nursing essentials in your registry because the whole idea of dispersing the expenses helps you out financially in a big way.

Remember there are things that you need to take care of yourself and then things you will need to take care of your newborn baby. Some starters for before birth even are some good skin care products. In addition to that magic cream you rub on your belly every day while praying to the stretch mark gods, you will need a good nipple cream. The ointments are usually in a pasty Vaseline like substance and come in a squeeze tube. You will want to start applying that product well before the arrival of baby to make your nipple skin ready to be used regularly.

Another thing to remember in skin care is that anything you put on your skin, your baby will be rubbing up against. Mostly that means that you should try to use the most gentle, natural, perfume and chemical free lotion that you can find so that it is sensitive enough for your baby and his skin as well.

The very most basic of nursing essentials that every mom will want and need are: nursing bras – regular and sleep styles, nursing pajamas, a nursing pillow of some sort, a breast pump, and a nursing cover. The nursing bra comes in mainly two different styles of nursing methods. There is the clip down cup that individually open to expose one breast at a time for nursing. Then there is the pull aside version that is made in a criss cross style and the fabric and construction are made to withstand stretching one cup over the breast to the side for feeding. Each mom is different in what they prefer and different settings you may require or prefer one over the other. Nursing pajamas are essential because you need to spend at least the first week or two trying to rest and heal while you are taking care of your newborn as well. You will need to stay comfortable and there is no better excuse for walking around in your pajamas than childbirth. Your nursing pillow you will find comes in handy for many things including nursing, tummy time for baby, propping baby up on his back, placing on the floor around baby when he is learning to sit up, and you will be surprised how comfortable it is to rest your own head on while you are up late reading your books on baby’s first year!

After these very basic tools, every new nursing mom will need some nursing clothing as well. The difference here is that every mom has a different situation with work. If you are planning on staying at home indefinitely or work from home, your needs in nursing clothing will be very different from those that work outside the home while still breastfeeding. Even the kind of breast pump you choose may depend on where you will be traveling with it and how you do your commute. They come in all sorts of styles such as over the arm straps or backpack style and they also come with small coolers that include a cold pack in order to make transporting your breast milk from work to home more easy and convenient.

These days there are many products out there that are made strictly to make your life as a nursing mom as easy and stress free as possible.

Within temptation mother earth is a composition of the Gothic Dutch metal band. The band was founded in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt. Their music is variously described as symphonic metal, as well as gothic metal in some media.

Within temptation mother earth: Communicating with nature through music

Music is the code language of “the nature” and nature communicates with us through music. The lyrics of “within temptation mother earth” carries a special meaning for me as I can perceive what nature wants to tell us through these lyrics. Let me decode the message of nature from the lyrics of this beautiful song called “within temptation mother earth”.

Within temptation mother earth: Decoding mother earth lyrics

“Birds and butterflies

Rivers and mountains she creates

But you’ll never know

The next move she’ll make

You can try

But it is useless to ask why

Cannot control her

She goes her own way”

Message- Let’s accept the fact that however we might try but still we would not be able to master the nature. We have initiated great scientific and technological movements with the hope that one day we shall control the nature. But see what kind of mess we have ultimately created. In fact the whole premise of human development is based on reductionism and consumption of natural resources and that’s why we are reaching a dead end. To chalk out a new path of development and progress we need to work with the concept of unification of forces and holism. Only this will help us to move forward with revolutionary discoveries and inventions in every field. So let’s work with the awareness of the ultimate truth that nature is dynamic and therefore nature’s laws cannot be totally revelled or understood. On the other if we work with nature, she might help us solve many of her mysteries and thus throw us up on the higher evolutionary trajectory. This is the message I could gather from the first stanza of “Within temptation mother earth” song. Now let’s see the remaining stanzas of this song.

“She rules until the end of time

She gives and she takes

She rules until the end of time

She goes her own way”

Message-If anything is there that can transcend time it is mother nature. She was present before the existence and she will be present even after the end of existence. She is primordial, dynamic and has her own will. We need to be aware of nature’s “will” and this awareness shall help us to understand our soul’s purpose. Moving towards our soul’s purpose will naturally carry us along the nature’s way.

“With every breath

And all the choices that we make

We are only passing through on her way

I find my strength

Believing that your soul lives on

Until the end of time

I’ll carry it with me”

Message-The third stanza of the “Within temptation mother earth” song gives a message that the only possible way to move into the higher trajectory of life is to move with nature. Make her your ally and she will carry you on her lap. Work against her and you shall fall in the abyss. Therefore let nature show you “your purpose on earth” and let her work for you and let her carry you to salvation. Give your “soul” to the nature and she will show you the “purpose” of your existence and the path to “liberation”.

“Once you will know my dear

You don’t have to fear

A new beginning always starts at the end

Until the end of time

She goes her own way

Message-The final stanza of the song “Within temptation mother earth” gives a message that once you know your soul’s purpose then you are “on track” along with nature. Then there is nothing to fear and every form of destruction shall only lead to renewed creation. What we need to understand is that to make nature your friend and ally you may have to leave aside many of the shackles and restrictions of society. This may come in any form but you have to be prepared to shed the past that becomes a block to your soul’s purpose without any grudge or hatred. Embrace all that is new and all that serves your soul’s purpose. Be attached to all the manifestations of nature but simultaneously be detached as you need to remember that you are on a journey in sync with your soul’s purpose and you are continuously being guided by nature herself.

Within temptation mother earth: Nature has her own way

Finally I have to just say that nature has her own will and her own way. If we listen to her then she has a purpose for us. Therefore without thinking twice we should embrace her and this will definitely ensure that we are on the way to liberation. We need to just jump into her lap and she will not mind carrying the extra weight.

This site envisions the rise of womanhood in true sense that is the rise of the “essence” of womanhood in the physical, mental, intellectual and the spiritual planes. It calls for the beginning of a campaign for the true rise of women in all spheres of life for the restoration of the balance in nature.

Somewhere we have to make a beginning and it’s always better if we make the initiation at our own self. We can strengthen this mass movement for the “rise of womanhood” by bringing about the necessary changes in our own life as felt by our inner self. Further we can transmit the new thinking to others who care to listen. A small step today will definitely lead to a giant leap tomorrow.
