Mamascarf Now Available at Baby Not Included

Breastfeeding is supposed to be the most natural thing in the world so why is it that you get critisised for bottlefeeding, yet you get stared at and made to feel embarrassed for breastfeeding your baby in public?

Whether you choose to bottlefeed or breastfeed is a personal choice, but the practicality of doing so isn’t always straightforward. I thought I’d tell you a story:

I use public transport to get to and from work (bus) and unfortunately the time I catch my bus coincides with kicking out time at Mecca bingo. This means that I have the unfortunate encounter with the Biddie Brigade (no offense intended). This brood of old ladies seem to think that they can say whatever they like without offending people because they are old.

To get to the point:

I caught the bus as usual, and a very hassled looking mum got on with her young baby and a toddler in tow. The baby was obviously due for a feed and the mum asked the bus driver if he minded her feeding her baby on the bus. He said that it was fine. She started to feed and the bus went quiet, at which point this group of five ladies very loudly started to openly talk about what a disgrace it was that the woman was openly feeding her baby in public. By the end of the journey, the poor mum was almost in tears………………….

I think we all have a breastfeeding horror story, whether its your own or somebody else’s.

Drum roll please…………….Introducing……….

The Mamascarf

Mamascarf is a revolutionary new breastfeeding scarf that not only allows mothers to breastfeed stylishly and discreetly but also provides essential support without the need for a cushion. The Mamascarf can be worn as a scarf, or neatly folded away. It even comes complete with a hidden pocket to store your breastpad.

  • It is easy to use and won’t draw attention to you.
  • Less distraction for your baby.
  • Hides your post pregnancy tummy.
  • Covers you before and after feeding.
  • 100% cotton and machine washable at 30 degrees.
  • The perfect gift idea for someone special who is pregnant.
  • Was invented by a breastfeeding mum for other breastfeeding mums!
  • One size fits all.
  • You can still see your baby and maintain eye contact.
  • New improved soft tactile cotton.

As seen on ITV This Morning programme and BBC Working Lunch.

* Please note that the Mamascarf is not designed for carrying a baby.

Christmas Deliver

Just a reminder that if you would like to order anything for Christmas, we are taking our last orders pre-Christmas on the 18th December.

I think its wicked the way Christmas sneaks up on you like it does without any forewarning (I know, I know).

I’m not particularly ready for it this year. I have, however, done quite a bit of the shopping. I haven’t quite got my Christmas spirit yet. Not sure if it’s because I’ve been too busy or if I’m just lacking enthusiasm.

My son on the other hand has been banging on about Christmas for weeks. He has written a list that’s getting longer than my arm, which he helpfully keeps at hand just in case another toy advert comes on the TV so that he doesn’t forget to add it. These are a few from the top:

HD ready telly (not a small one)
iPhone or other cool phone
Laptop

and then he goes on to name numerous computer games etc (because they’re only small)!

Am going to settle down to watch a Christmas film later on in the hope that it will awaken the child within me that will undoubtedly break free and restore my love of Christmas.

Wishing you all a Fab Christmas!
