I am Super Silver Top.
I will apologise first for the simple fact that breastfeeding came easily to me (sorry).
Why apologise? Because I know it can be a real struggle for many women. From the latch not being right, to tongue tie to under/over production, to diet restrictions due to your baby having allergies… I know that it can be a really, really hard road.
I have even felt guilty for it coming so easily to me. (It’s ok though, we all have regrets. Mine are about birth so breastfeeding is allowed to be my success story, right?).
I can’t help you with medical specifics but I can help you to feel more confident to give it a go.
A major struggle many women contend with is not wanting to breastfeed while they are out and about. Someone might see, you might leak, your baby might be fussy, you might end up with too many spills…. I know. The worries that go through your head are tough and I am done with trying to squeeze into the back seat to feed my baby in the hot car uncomfortably when I could relax and sit in a park and enjoy the breeze.
You see, when I first started breastfeeding my son I didn’t like the semi-corporate style that was prevalent at the time. I wanted to wear a dress. I wanted to dress comfortably and most of all, I wanted to wear something that was fun, easy to wash and wear AND easy to feed in. (Yes I did once wear a maxi dress and realise in horror that I couldn’t feed from the top…!)
So I designed a dress that meant that I could wear A DRESS that didn’t have any weird little zips or windows that I had to fumble around with.
My Outie dress design allowed me to breastfeed in public with more confidence. No fumbling and no flashing and lots of style and comfort. In fact, it was from breastfeeding in public that people started to ask me to make one for them, and then their friend, and then their friends’ friends – and it has made me shift the focus of my little business to be all about these dresses because I love them so much.
I make them. I wear them. I love them.
My dresses are FUN so we have called them ‘Knocker frocks’.
They are FUNCTIONAL so we also call them breastfeeding dresses.
They feed through a Batwing sleeve design so we also used to call them the ‘Everything Batwing’.
Whatever you call them, it’s simple and easy to breastfeed in an Outie dress.
All you do is pull the sleeve to the side so that your baby has access to your breast. Some women wear nursing singlets underneath or you can wear just a nursing bra or a boob tube or crop top. Once your baby has established a latch, you can let the sleeve fall nicely over your breast so that you can nurse your baby discretely without exposing your breast.
My knocker frocks mean that you can breastfeed confidently and snuggle with your baby without worrying about having a cover that might fall or a cover that your baby will kick off or pull at and without messing around with little zips, pleats or secret openings.
Outie dresses take the struggle out and put the snuggle in.
TEN reasons why my Outie knocker frocks rock:
1) Sleeve-feeding technology makes breastfeeding easy
2) Moisture wicking fabric mean that spills and leaks can be wiped up easily
3) All fabric is tested for moisture visibility in case of spills
4) Breathable light weight fabrics chosen to help with overheating (hormones!)
5) Fun fabric prints designed in house (hence ‘doodles’)
6) Home-sewn to order so that you can add your personal touch if desired (drop hem/contrast back/design your own print)
7) Dresses can also be worn as tops with jeans or tights
8) All dresses are also excellent special occasion dresses
9) All dresses are made in NZ
10) Purchasing Outie products supports a work at home Mama of two
AND I ship globally FYI.
I will shout it from the roof tops because I know your life will be better and I want to make breastfeeding more enjoyable for you and I know my dresses make a difference.
