You know that comment from strangers, often remarked to mothers of little ones, “Well, you’ve certainly got your hands full!”? In the case of Bay Area-based mama Chesley Carele, she wouldn’t have it any other way. The fashion stylist and mother of two youngsters—Evan, 2 1/2, and Elliette, 4 months—is loving her kids’ 2-year age gap and will (hopefully) have more children on the way in the future. Below, we catch up with Chesley to talk about everything from raising kids close together, to the family-first ethos that she inherited from her own close-knit family. Plus, feeding!

With an oversupply issue affecting both of her breastfeeding experiences, pumps and bottles have become a way of life for Chesley. Luckily, Nanobébé provided her with a brand-new stock of baby bottles for her latest journey. Founded by two fathers with 6 kids between them, Nanobébé’s newest product is the Flexy Silicone Bottle, which features a super soft, mom-like feel, the first ever anti-colic system with 3 vents, and a stable base that prevents tip overs—all reasons why moms have absolutely fallen in love with the Flexy. Take a look at it in action in our slideshow below, as Chesley and her adorable duo invite us into their home!
