Christmas has always been an occasion when I’ve loved to dress up. There’s usually some big social gathering during the festive period which means I see friends and relatives I haven’t seen for ages and everyone likes to make a bit of an effort to look good.
However, when I was breastfeeding, Christmas just seemed to present me with more occasions to breastfeed in public, and more pressure to look vaguely presentable at the same time. I really love wearing a dress and there aren’t many high street dresses which are breastfeeding friendly. Lifting the hem up above your boobs in public is just not an option and pulling the collar down would pull it out of shape. I had a couple of button front dresses but either the buttons didn’t button down far enough to get a boob out or undoing the buttons with one hand was almost impossible.
Here at Milk & Mummy we don’t believe that breastfeeding mums should have to compromise on their wardrobe just because they’re doing something as natural as feeding their baby.
This is where a Milk & Mummy breastfeeding dress can come to the rescue! So why should you buy from us this Christmas?
We sell beautiful dresses that you’d want to wear even if you weren’t feeding. In fact we think that many of the non-breastfeeding friends will be asking you where you got THAT dress from. We specialise in nursing dresses for dressed-up occasions.Whether it be elegant Zenobi with its on-trend lace overlay, in three stunning jewel colours or striking Tiffany in two-tone black and red, you’ll be sure to turn heads for all the right reasons.
- Easy-peasy breastfeeding
All our dresses have really discrete and super-simple nursing openings. We don’t believe in some complicated strap mechanism. You don’t need five hands and a chin to hold the nursing opening up, just one hand will do, leaving you free to hold your baby, baste the turkey, drink more mulled wine….
- None of those awkward “she’s wearing the same dress” moments
Our pieces are all from very small production runs in Europe and sometimes further afield so it’s highly unlikely that another mum will be wearing the same dress as you, meaning you can keep your individual style all to yourself!
- A really personal & efficient service
We’re small enough to care and treat every customer as an individual and often go out of our way to answer customer queries. We can usually offer same day dispatch on orders received by lunchtime, and as all orders are sent via Royal Mail first class signed for post, they often arrive the next working day. Important when you’re a busy new mum and everything is last minute!
- Free returns
Yep that’s right. Free returns on all orders because we know how difficult it is to gauge your post baby body size and shape and you’ll probably want to try on a few styles in the comfort of your own home to make sure you get the perfect one.
Let’s face it – it’s not as if Christmas is exactly a stress-free event for most mums so if breastfeeding mums can look good while being able to nurse their babies then we believe that’s halfway to feeling good!
Merry Christmas and happy shopping!
