3 Practical Mom Hacks for breast pumping, child safety, and portable toilet

Three moms share their tricks and techniques to make our lives easier.

         While you can delegate some of these tasks to the help, these genius moms shared some hacks on how to make a handsfree breast pumping, child safety tattoo, and a portable camping toilet on a pocket-friendly budget.


Handsfree Breast Pump Bra hack

Gabriella Davi-Khorasanee (The founder of MISS Omni Media and the Editor-In-Chief of Lil-Miss) shared how she’s able to create her DIY handsfree breast pump bra using an old jog bra.  She made a very tiny snip in the fabric that falls over her nipple, just a slit about 1/4 of an inch wide. Then, she stretched out the hole she snipped and pushed the breast pump (the funnel part) through the hole.

Child Safety Hack

Cherise McClimans of Blogging Beauty Secrets posted a genius safety hack for keeping kids safe in crowds. She said that if you plan to take your young child to a big event, theme park, or other busy location, write your phone number on their wrist and cover it with liquid band aid in case you get separated. Also, use your cell phone to take a photo of them the morning of the event so you have their clothing, hair style, and up to date photo. “Think of it as a temporary tattoo – with a function,” she added.

Sarah a thrifty mom had an incredible idea on how to make her own portable toilet for her kids when camping.  She made it using a pool noodle and a 5 gallon bucket. She took a utility knife and sliced the pool noodle open all the way down one side.  She wanted the ends to come together without a gap so she cut them at a 45% angle. Then, she pushed it onto the lip of the bucket to form a seat. She wanted it to stay on really good so they used Gorilla Glue Epoxy to set it into place. She also slid a kitchen trash bag over it for easy clean up and removal. She can also use a Reciprocating Saw and cut the bottom out of the bucket and use it over a hole in the ground-she also used a shovel.
