Boezemvriend » Baby, Boob, Shop and Cafe

Now that I’m a mother, I need to selectively search for those places where I can open my laptop, do some work, enjoy a coffee and breastfeed my baby without people giving me that strange look. Even though breastfeeding is totally natural and a necessity for your baby, some people still think it’s strange when a woman is breastfeeding her child in public. Boezemvriend is one of those places where it’s possible to do this without feeling weird about it while enjoying a tasty latte.

Breastfeeding Consultancy
As a new mother I know how tough the first few weeks can be when it comes to breastfeeding. Boezemvriend is a lactation consultancy practice, where you can ask all your questions about and around breastfeeding. You can also book a lactation consultant (if needed, they can visit you at home), you can follow courses and buy or rent breast pumps. (always handy!) If you want to check if it’s for you, you can join their monthly birth cafe where you can ask questions to a professional consultant and meet new parents, for free! 

Who says that breastfeeding-friendly cafe’s can’t be cool?

The Cafe
Super nice! I was surprised about the great tasting coffee, healthy muffins and the best hummus & grilled vegetables sandwich I ever tasted! Yes, this cafe isn’t just a secondary attachment to Boezenvriend, no it’s a place I would recommend to all people. And yes, it’s mostly visited by mothers (or fathers) with a baby or young child. It’s particularly great for that group of customers because you can totally relax. When a baby is crying, no one is looking annoyed because they all understand. Breastfeeding is only encouraged (and the women are still very discreet, covering their breast with a small blanket)

The Store
Here you can find all sorts of baby related stuff. From clothes, blankets, car seats, baby carriers to maternity wear. Labels are mostly organic and super stylish. It’s not cheap but the quality is very good so if you want to score a great baby present for you or a friend, Boezemvriend is a great option!

We want to share some personal and exiting news with you..

At Wander-Lust we focus on giving you as much information as possible about special destinations, hidden treasures, new food spots and travel tips. When you follow us on Instagram you will notice that we are less personal than some other “bloggers” and that’s because we want you to gain interest in travel and get the information you may seek instead of looking at our boring faces all the time ;-).  However, it’s always nice to know the girls behind the blog/website so by now you have a fair idea who we are, where we come from and what are passions are. We want you to relate to us when you read an article and we hope to inspire you with the things we do and the stuff we’ve learned along the way! A new period in my life has began (or will begin) and I think it’s time to share this exiting news with you guys… 

There is a Wanderlust-baby on the way!
Yes, I’m pregers and I’ve been pregnant for a whole 6 months now!! It’s my first child and I have no idea what’s happening so I’m pretty exited as you can imagine. This hasn’t stopped me from traveling so this is why you may not have noticed before :-).  Coming to my 7th month, airlines won’t let me fly anymore so all long distance travels will be done by Sarah and our guest bloggers the coming period.

Wanderlust Baby
Sneezing at posing at the same time. Didn’t know I could do that but hey!

What does this mean for Wander-Lust? 
Not a lot will change. At least, not on our website. During the last month in my pregnancy, I will take it a bit easier and Sarah will take over some of the work. We are also lucky to have 7 amazing guest bloggers that will travel and discover all the hotspots so you won’t miss out on anything! After that I am planning to continue as usual only I will have more to write about! I will discover destinations with extra angles and I’m sure there are many parents amongst our readers so extra travel tips are coming your way in 2017! So what’s on our agenda? Well, Sarah will fly to Bali mid December where she will be for 3 weeks with fellow blogger Marlieke (@cottenandcream), photographer Ilsoo van Dijk, (FatKidsCake) and model Reno Sluyter. Foodie Sharmaine will fly to Zurich on the 13th of December for a culinary trip and guest blogger Eva will move mountains in Austria on a awesome ski trip in Januari! Besides this we are planning a lot more for 2017..

Sign up to our Newsletter (check our sidebar) and we can let you know our plans for 2017 as more exiting projects and collaborations are coming!

I’m ready for this new chapter in my life and I can’t wait to show my wanderlust-baby the world!

Love,

Elke
