New website means better goodies for breast feeding mums

Hurrah after what seems like an eternity we have gotten around to getting our new website on-line, it’s taken ages basically because i haven’t got my butt into gear and there is always lots to do; plus (i won’t bore you with all the details) i’ve had so much hassle with people not doing what they are paid to do ie accountants it’s given me a proper headache! But this has all been changed now and i have found someone who is brill 🙂

I’ve also been thinking about my blog, i’m sorta fed up with just writing “and here’s our next nursing top” which seems kinda insincere and crappy; i really love Mama FeelsGood, it is totally my 3rd baby (which sometimes can be a pain because i take some things way too personally) so i wanted to write bits about the company, the clothes we produce, why we make them, my daily role in running the company and maybe basically my life. To me this seems more worthwhile rather than churning out spam ! So apologies if this isn’t what you want to hear, trust me my life is not that thrilling , i promise not to blog about going to Tesco etc!

It’s getting close to the end of 2011 and looking back on this year of working on Mama FeelsGood i feel pretty good about what we have achieved : We reached the final of the Practical Parenting awards and also the Mother & Baby awards (this is thought of as THE best awards, sorta Oscars for the nursery world) and to get in the final in both of these when competition is so strong was a real achievement for us.

After all we are a small company so to get recognition is really cool, plus it was the first year we had ever entered any competitions so all is good. Of course if we have won i would have had a party that lasted about a week, but hey you gotta take credit where its due and we got in the final so excellenti !

Also in 2011 we have introduced our new Money Penny nursing tops and breastfeeding dresses – i made sure when these were made that they we thicker fabric so they are durable for breastfeeding and not so thin you can see through them; 1 thing i found when breastfeeding was i had to wear quite a substantial nursing bra because my wongers were maoooosive and it wasn’t the type of underwear i would want everyone to see shining through my garments so ladies i have thought of this and the thicker fabric has been used for our nursing dress ! This also goes for our Money Penny nursing tops too as they are made of the same material (and work on the same breastfeeding access as the dresses).

Also our new boat neck nursing tops are in store, these are SO soft it’s untrue; also the underlayer of the tops is the same colour as the top layer, our previous style nursing tops were mostly white underlayers and different top layer colours  so we’ve changed things up and all new shirts have same colour top & bottoms . For example our Tattooo owl nursing top

So who knows what 2012 will bring ? Hopefully more new designs and maybe a few surprises ?

24th October – New website and new stock

Ok so it has been agreed on moday the 24th of october we are going live with our new website and new range of breastfeeding tops.

I have so much to learn before we go live ie how the admin works on our new site so i think its going to be a steep learning curve!

I’m up for the challenge though and think there will be lots of late nights involved. Our product shot photos have come out really well and i have lots of things planned for them, so make sure you check out our website http://www.mamafeelsgood.com .

Just a little heads up we are putting on sale lots of our old style shirts and these will either be removed when the new website is up or the price will be raised, so grab some now while you have the chance 🙂

Take care guys, Liz

New range of breastfeeding T-shirts and new website

Sorry i have been a bit slack on my blog postings, mainly because so much has been going on both with the business and in my home life it;s been hard to keep up!

On the work front i am super excited to say our new shirts have arrived, they are really nice ( i know you would think i would say this but they are ) i had them delivered with no hassle (all other previous deliveries had involved a lot of drama in one form or another , which had given me cold sweats every time i knew a delivery was on it;s way) i managed this one all on my own and now have biceps like arnie but all the shirts are here safely.

It’s true what they say that you need good people working around you, the kinda people who you know have got your back, and i am really lucky to have retained people like this and i;ve found new ones too that hopefully if they are as good as i think they will be cool for Mama FeelsGood.  It sucks big time to be let down by people who you had previously trusted so i’ve just had a taste of this and it wasn’t nice but i’ve put this down as a learning experience and changed certain aspects of the business ie don;t get an accountant that doesn’t do anything!

I’ve also been to Germany this Spetember to the mooooosive trade show for nursery products and i’ve found some really cool designers and baby changing bags etc which are super cool and if things work out ok i’d like to sell on-line.

We have our new website waiting in the wings, i’ve just got to learn how to use it! This my take some time ha ha

We also have our photoshoot on saturday which will be in the centre of bristol so fingers crossed for the good weather.

Things are changing and our new stock will be here soon. woo hoo

Find great competitions & nursing top giveaways on our facebook page

Right now we are making the final move to our new office (well in fact we have 2 offices but that is a long story) and we are finding lots of nursing shirts that some how have found themselves down the back of the shelves ! So they are a bit dusty or there are a few that have random marks on them from manufacturing and we cannot sell; so the nice people that we are we are giving them away to ladies who need them far more than us.

The best way we have found to do this is via our facebook fan page because it’s quick and it seems it’s a fair way of doing it as everyone gets a shot.Of course if you are not a member of facebook you can always leave your name under this message to be entered but the easiest way is via facebook.

We also run competitions and give heads up on new or upcoming stock on our facebook page too, and also it’s a great place to get your advice on what you want to see on our website, and the kinda breastfeeding clothes you want to see made. So come on over, say hi, and as BT say it’s good to talk ….ok type maybe !
