New Shirt delivery should be here anyday

So thing is i’ve jigged things around a little, changed the way i work and trying to have more stock ! It’s been so difficult changing our manufacturers of our shirts, bringing everything a little closer to home and the idea was to speed up production and get some shirts back on the shelves. Well that was the plan, pans out that getting everything just right takes a little longer than i thought but whats the saying “you can’t hurry love” – no hang on a minute that was Phil Collins!

Big thumbs up though new shirts are on their way hopefully as we speak and to go with these new nursing shirts are some new print designs. Again i’ve been learning new things and have been perfecting the art of screen printing ( i bloody love it too, so awesome ot see a design you made yourself come to life on a shirt). Of course i still will out source some of the printing as this takes years to get right and Paul and Ben our current printers are so freakin brilliant i could never say goodbye!

Here is my first new design, home printed by Mama

I must say i was really excited to list our new Mothership nursing shirt yesterday as it’s really really cool. I;ve snagged one for myself already ! The whole vintage vibe about it coupled with the Sci-fi aspect i totally dig. was thinking of doing a Roswell print too but lets see.

We have a new vintage Heart print too which came out yesterday, it’s on our long sleeve organic nursing top and it’s awesome.

Over the next few weeks i will be bringing out more new prints, more products and a new direction in goodies too which will compliment our current range.

Stay cosy ladies x

Mama Feelsgood is featured in Green Parent Magazine

I am SO chuffed to say that we are featuring in this months GreenParent Magazine.

Mama Feelsgood Breastfeeding Tops in Green PArent Magazine

It was a really nice article we were featured in basically showing that there are quite a few options open if you want to breastfeed in public without flashing your wongers or baby belly at everyone!

Everyone is different and some women are more comfortable at feeding in public, and it is something that take s a bit of getting use to. But hey you shouldn;t ever feel that you can’t go out when you are breastfeeding , Ok i know in the beginning if you are anything like me it took me ages just to get myself and my girls up and dressed to go out and when i did they would fill their nappy and i would have to start all over again! But it’s really cool to get your butt out of the house and enjoy some outdoors time with your baby. With Amelia i think Starbucks was my first destination, so nice just to try and chill out (OK maybe chilling out is an over estimation because i was a little highly strung at first about her screaming the place down, which she didn’t!) . So where was the first place you went out solo with your new little baby?

So what methods do you use to make breastfeeding in public that bit easier for you? I’ll be honest and say the whole idea of using a cover wasn’t for me, Erin i know would just pull at it like and probably pull it up but i haven’t ever used one so i might have gotten it totally wrong. How have you guys gotten on with them?

I also heard that baby slings are good at covering your bits when breastfeeding plus it takes some of the strain off of your back and arms because you can let the sling do some of the supporting. ?

Anyways take a good read of our article and let me know what you think; Green PArent magazine is SO cool for ideas and tips for parents so it;s SO luch to be featured in it. I have bought the magazine and am going to laminate the page this afternoon!! I know i am a sad case!!

Happy weekend guys, Liz

Happy 2011

Happy new year everyone, hope 2010 was good for you and 2011 will be even better.

2010 rocked for us, Mama Feelsgood did it’s second complete year of trading (we went live with our website October 2008) and it’s been really good, in fact a lot better than i could have thought. Fun times, sad times , we’ve moved location to a bigger office met lots of lovely people along the way  had a baby (my lovely daughter Erin) and made big plans for 2011.

I started mama Feelsgood back in 2005 really, it was in my head for abour 3 years and finally got things moving back in 2008; MFG is my baby , maybe i am too attached to it but i have put SO much effort into it. I just wanted to provide nursing mothers with some other options for clothing, something thats gonna make you feel good, and something for you. So much attention is put on your babies ( and totally so they are very precious things we would do anything for) but along the way it’s really easy to forget yourself; especially second/ third etc time around. I noticed with having Erin this year who is my second baby that you just get on with it, the pregnancy and birth etc i’m not saying it’s not special because course it is but you have so much going on with the first baby that right there with you that days go by and before you know it your baby is out and you are full throttle again.

Now our nursing shirts are not going to get up in the night and feed your baby, neither are they going to restore your pre pregnancy body and wash your hair for you on THOSE days when all you wanna have is some time to yourself and sleep, but what i hope they will do is give you a choice of something you would want and enjoy wearing which fits in with your life right now and provides a bit of coverage for yourself of things you would rather kept you you & your loved ones!

I’ve been working super hard this year (believe me i was packing orders 3 days after having my c-section when Erin was alseep) and our breastfeeding dresses will be with us mid January and also some breastfeeding tops/ blouses will be here. We will be doing our photo shoot for these late January so they will be in store soon. Also to join these we are bringing our some new graphic nursing T-shirts too. So lots going on. To make room for these lots of our old style graphic prints are on sale so check them out because when they are gone they won’t be re-printed.

Anyways i scaddaddle now as i’m rambling on but thanks for checking us out in 2010 and we promise 2011 there will be more Mama Feelsgood goodies 🙂

Take care, Liz

Check our Mama Feelsgood facebook page for giveaways and freebies

As we are in the process of moving into our new office it has uncovered lots of nursing shirts i didn’t know i had! Either faulty ones, customers returns which are no longer fit for resale (boo hoo) , ones which have just gotten dirty along the way in transit i’m sure you get the picture! So rather than just chucking these away we thought it would be nice to give them away to people who will make some use of them.

Some of the breastfeeding tops have holes or tares in them from being faulty in manufacture and they are in the underlayers so not always visable and might be good for just wearing around the house, so they still keep you warm . Of course some of the tops with marks on them can just be washed and they might be OK, it;s that i cannot sell tops that have been laundered so they are no good to me.

So to catch these little gems you have to check out and be a fan of our facebook page. There is no regularity to when we post them, just random when we find them really, so you have to keep you eyes peeled!
