This week i received THE coolest email ever, it was from a mum who has bought our breastfeeding tops (she has been with us from early on when we started) and she wrote to us to let us know that our breastfeeding tops have really helped her and her friend out and to be able to breastfeed in public without the stress of other peoples comments and stares etc.
Here is a little quote from her email:
“I have to say honestly your tops have made this possible, as they have given me so much confidence as people can’t really tell when I’m feeding, and since having my baby I must have worn your tops all but about 10 days in total – they just make my life so much easier!”
How cool is this 🙂
I totally choked up when i read this (the whole email is so fab but can’t show it all as it’s a bit personal ), it is awesome when someone “gets ” you and think yeah i’m totally into that. Personally sometimes i think ladies can get the rough end of the stick, yes we do get those extra cuddles with our babies when we breastfeed which are so lush but we also get all the crap from people who just don’t “get” what we are doing. For starters it’s none of their business, all we want to do is go out with our babies and feed them when they are hungry; it’s not like we are making it our mission to flash our boobies ! SOme countries are so laid back about breastfeeding, i guess here in the UK we just need to get over ourselves and think thats what boobies were made for!
I was so excited when my first daughter was born but i did freak out when i had to go out with her and i knew she would want a feed because some people can be so rude and i didn;t want people staring at me,so hence Mama FeelsGood was created; i;m not saying it stops people staring all together but it definately helps 🙂
