Winter nursing clothes in my current size, #MamaFail!

My mother-in-law was up reading Consumer Reports articles in the middle of the night and came across one that she thought I needed to read. (Praise the Lord for her and her thoughtfulness!) The article she sent me detailed how Consumer Reports had tested a wide variety of jarred baby foods, baby meal pouches, package baby snacks, etc. and discovered that about two-thirds (68 percent) of the store-bought baby food sampled had worrisome levels of at least one heavy metal–even the organic products!
