Seven and a half months ago, in Feb 2018 I had my first baby boy, Brody. It was the best thing to ever happen to me 💙
The first few weeks/months I practically lived in PJs. When I did wear 'normal' clothes it was a daily struggle finding something nice that I felt comfortable in, hid my new post-baby belly and, most importantly, allowed easy access for feeding. I hated getting ready to the point where I didn't want to go out anywhere. I just didn’t feel like me at all anymore and it was starting to really bring me down.
I have breastfed Brody since birth and that itself added a lot of stress to the question of 'what can I wear?'. For me it needed to be easy to feed in without everything on show. Being a first time mom, I didn’t have a clue. I thought I could only wear specific nursing tops! Admittedly, they are very easy to feed in but I struggled to find many in my style of clothing that I liked… I just felt so frumpy.
However, I finally began to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Over the last few months seeing and speaking to other moms I began to learn that there are actually a lot of 'normal' clothes that are easy to feed in! I have learnt little tricks & tips to feed Brody discreetly as I am a nervous public feeder.
It has made such a massive difference in how I feel about myself being able to wear clothes I would have worn in the past. I now get out and about a lot more, I feel happy, I have my identity back and best of all I know I can feed confidently wearing them.
So, I decided to create MODERN Mama💜
I thought: ‘I can't be alone in feeling like this’… So, I took it upon myself to create a breast-feeding friendly shop. I have sourced a variety of breast-feeding friendly clothes that are up to date with the latest trends, all at affordable prices tried and tested on myself.
I think it is very important for us to feel happy and confident in ourselves and I really hope Modern Mama clothing can do that for you!
All items are breast-feeding friendly, but anyone can enjoy Modern Mama clothing 😊
Thank you for reading… happy shopping 👜
Love Alice & Brody x
