We’re Coming Back

I’ve been pretty quiet on here lately, still working hard in the background to create beautiful and helpful breastfeeding clothes for you mamas. But the time has come that I get a little bit louder on here.

I’ll be joining the tandem feeding mamas soon (yay!), which means my time will be shared out even more than it is already. I’m so excited for all the newy newness and I’ve been planning on how I can make this work best for all of us.

I am working with designers and manufacturers to help me with my work load. For a little while stock availability will be reduced but still so chic and discreet.

I’m excited to introduced you to our Chic and Discreet basics range and our signature Leopard Print Breastfeeding Clothes.

I’ll be working more closely with you beautiful mamas because you have some of the most amazing suggestions for what you’d like to add to your wardrobe.

I’m currently looking for London based Mamas who are interested in trying out some of our new designs, so if you’re interested or know a mama who might be I’d love to hear from you. Please send them my details or DM me theirs.

I’m so excited for all that is to come and I hope that you are too. After all, this is Chic and Discreet breastfeeding for you stylish mamas.

Breastfeeding: What is it?

Breastfeeding is the natural way of providing infants, toddlers and young children with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. This method of feeding offspring has been prominent since the beginning of time.

Mamas use the milk produced by their own breasts or the breasts of another human mother to feed their babies. This can be done through direct breastfeeding or through pumping the milk and then feeding their babies.

At first, colostrum, which is the sticky, yellow, breast milk, is produced at the end of pregnancy. This is recommended by the World Health Organisation as the perfect food for the newborn. It’s not much, it won’t fill up bottles and bottles, but it is the perfect amount for your newborn. Then mother’s milk comes in at around day 3 – 5.

Breastfeeding is a supply and demand process, meaning that the more stimulation and ‘demand’ there is for milk to be produced, the more milk will flow. This is true for both breasts in their own right” if you continually stimulate one breast only that breast will produce a constant flow of milk. This is why it is recommended that you feed or pump from both breasts.

According to the WHO, virtually all mothers can breastfeed, provided they have accurate information, and the support of their family, the health care system and society at large. Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond.

Trial Prices for our breastfeeding dresses are changing.

On March 25th we launched a range of breastfeeding dresses, some unhemmed, some t-shirt style and some summer dresses.

We have had lots of orders for each of these dresses which has been absolutely wonderful!

As of the 12th of April our trial prices will be changing. The unhemmed dresses will remain the same price.

The other dresses will go up by 10%.

Why?

Each dress is hand made from scratch. When you place an order I have to collect the fabric, cut the correct shapes and sizes and sew everything – and which I love. You also have the option my make specific requests for alterations. All included in the price.

I price all of my pieces having considered the amount of effort and time taken to create each item in addition to the cost of the or the raw resources.

Having trialled this pricing for a short while it is time for the increase.

Thank you for supporting a small business! It means the world. I think you’re doing such a beautiful job and I wish you all the best.
