Second Peek Maternity Boutique Has Moms Covered

Second Peek Maternity Boutique Logo
Breastfeeding is hard.Between a need for modesty, continued discomfort, and “baby brain”, there are a lot of things that can go wrong.

One thing that was easy was finding useful and quality products at Second Peek Maternity Boutique.


Breastfeeding can be a Positive Experience for Baby and Mom.

Fortunately for me, I’ve had the opportunity to review their products and service before and had great things to say about their Undercover Mama Nursing Tank. Which incidently, I’m using for Baby #2! Here’s a bit more about the company.


Founded in late 2009, Second Peek Maternity started as an online maternity resale shop dedicated to pre-loved maternity wear. Today it has grown to be a major retail online resource for new and expecting moms in Canada. We proudly support mom-owned businesses, featuring their products on our website. Many of these mommy products are award winning, and all were carefully chosen and aimed towards the lifestyle and needs of busy moms. Our goal is to help simplify the everyday tasks.

The first item that I reviewed was the Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet. The durable, wearable bracelet is available in five different colours. I chose green because I am a big supporter of organ donation and thought why not support my cause at the same time.

Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet from Second Peek

The mechanism on the bracelet is simple: when ready to nurse, flip the pliable bracelet over to see which side to feed from first. My favourite feature of this bracelet is that the font for “Right” is raised and the font for “Left” is depressed, which helps a lot in the dark at 2am! There are also removable sliding time indicators which can be used as reminders for anything that mom might forget. I’m currently managing my daughter’s slow weight gain and am using the indicators to record the number of feedings per day.

At a regular price of $6.85, this is a great item to add to any gift for an expectant mom.


Nursing? Second Peek Maternity has you Covered!

The second item that I received was a MoBoleez Nursing Bonnet. With summer fast approaching, I’ll be at the park a lot with my toddler and was hoping for something that provided modesty, sun-cover for my infant, wasn’t too hot, while being stylish at the same time. I’ve never had luck trying to wrangle a blanket over my shoulder.


I was concerned initially that the bonnet would be too bulky to pack in my overflowing diaper bag, but was pleased to find it folded to no larger than a regular receiving blanket. I did make the mistake of ordering the 6-12m size instead of the 0-6m size, so it is a bit big on my 3-month old, but she’ll grow into it which is OK by me.

I like that Second Peek provides options that would be considered suitable for boys too, although the bonnet provides such great cover nobody would be the wiser. I think that the Moboleez bonnet is a great alternative to other nursing covers available and have not seen anything else like it!

Second Peek Maternity Boutique is soon launching a sister website called The Mommy Collection. This site will house all the great mom-invented products currently available in the boutique. Be sure to book mark it.

    they have a lot of coming soon stuff. I am looking for an Angel dear Blankie stuffie so if they did get them I would likely choose that.

  2. Jenn McClearn

    I am nearing the end of my pregnancy so I would get a couple of nursing tops what great prices they have on them!

  3. Christine Denton

    I would get the teething bling donut shaped pendant! Looks so awesome! I would be able to wear something stylish that it's OKAY if my little one chews on! I would also get a pair of leggings (to make up the difference)

  4. Trisha Kilpatrick

    I would get Maternity Capris by Motherhood Maternity (Size: Plus) along with a cute top like ¾ Sleeve Maternity Top by Motherhood Maternity (Size: Plus). That outfit would make me very happy.

  5. Hannah Severson

    I would probably get some of the leg warmers, and/or something related to nursing..like a nursing tank. The Milk Bands Nursing Bracelet seems pretty cool. If there are any baltic amber necklaces, I’d get one of those, too.

  6. Angel Wolf

    The Bling Donut Shaped Pendant would DEFINITELY come in use. My sister complains how her daughter is going insane when she goes out since she started teething. Having someone on hand would be great.

    Bummas Cloth Wipes ~ The Tropical Ones, Personalized Pacifier Clips ~ Bloom
    Personalized Pacifier Clips ~ Bloom.

    If I won, I’d get the Teething Bling Donut Shaped Pendant (Pink Calcite) and Biodegradable Bamboo Wipes 🙂
