Breastfeeding Jumper – Mama Clothing
I wanted a winter baby. After two girls born a week apart in September and leading into Summer, I wanted to be able to enjoy snuggling up with my third (and last baby), keeping each other warm over the winter months as we got to know each other. Of course, the one thing I wasn’t looking forward to was breastfeeding in the dead of winter. These amazing jumpers from Mama Clothing have being a life saver.
Elliot is now four weeks old, and I have been wearing these breastfeeding hoodies day in and day out. In fact, it’s lucky I have two of them, so that if one is in the wash, I still have another on standby ready to go. I had no idea before Elliot arrived, just how much I would live in these jumpers. While the days at the moment are still warm, the nights are very cold, and my jumper doesn’t come off.
Getting up to breastfeed in the early hours of the morning is much easier when you don’t have to strip down to get your breast out. Mama Clothing have two types of hoodies: one with a zip and one with vertical pocket access. I will admit, I am a zip kind of girl. I love that the zip is two way, so you can unzip one side, leaving the other done up, before zipping up and switching sides. It is so easy to reach in and unhook you bra ready to go, and I don’t have to worry about pulling up layers (and freezing in the process) just so Elliot can latch on. The vertical access is also great, I just find it a bit trickier getting the breast out and Elliot to latch on.
It also makes breastfeeding in public so much easier as well. Whether you prefer the zip or the vertical access, you don’t have to lift up layers and expose yourself trying to feed. You can discreetly pop your baby on to feed without the drama.
We are only a couple of weeks into Winter, but I know I won’t be taking these jumpers off. They are lined with fleece as well, making them extra toasty. At the moment, while they weather is still cooling down, I simply wear just a breastfeeding friendly singlet underneath, meaning when it does get cooler, I will still be able to layer and stay warm.
