Beautiful Breastfeeding Clothes

Designer showcase: Milker

This week I’d like to introduce you to our Danish brand, Milker. How would I sum them up? Great quality classics with a bit of a twist, and the only supplier we have found of cosy knitted nursing wear. Sorry, that wasn’t very succinct was it?

Well keeping it brief has never been my strong point, especially when I am madly enthusiastic about something! And we are pretty mad keen about our gorgeous Milker clobber.

Adelaide Hamburger founded Milker 11 years ago. She was a designer by trade, previously designing children’s wear. On one occasion while she was breastfeeding outside, Adelaide wondered if there was a way that she could feed more discreetly, with more coverage, and then she found herself staring at the crossover neckline of her daughter’s vest. It dawned on her that this style of neckline would provide easy nursing access for mums. That evening she set about sketching some possible designs. These designs formed her first collection. All mums will understand how your mind does tend to wander during long feeding stints, and I’m sure Adelaide isn’t the only mum who has had a eureka moment whilst nursing!

As with most designers, the collection developed and changed over the years and now all of Milker’s designs have “Empire Line Access”; access from under the bust. Adelaide experimented with different types of openings over the years and found this to work best for her designs and her customers.

it was a no-brainer that Milk & Mummy should stock Libby

Milker is probably the only nursing wear designer to make breastfeeding clothes with wool content. These are a big hit during our cold British winters and have become some of Milker’s bestsellers. For this reason it was a no-brainer that Milk & Mummy should stock Libby, our name for their fabulous knitted dress made from 50% wool, 50% viscose with wide stripes and cute contrasting pockets. These will be life-savers when the inevitable cold, icy weather sets in. We just had to have it in three colourways as I couldn’t decide between them!

For day to day hard-working basics, look no further than Nelly or Nikki;- soft and stretchy long sleeve tees in various colours. These are wardrobe staples; true friends that you will live in!

For something a little more sophisticated we’ve got Emily; a V neck sweater in lightweight knitted cotton in a beautiful and certainly-not-run-of-the-mill pistachio or plum colour, which can be easily dressed up with your favourite chunky necklace and smart jeans or warmed up with a chunky scarf and hat for an afternoon out.

We think our Milker range has a little bit of something for everyone, but of course you are the best judge of that, so please browse our shop if you’d like to see more, as this is just a selection.

About Me:

My name is Emma and I have three (!) wonderful babies. The oldest is my daughter Elsa, born in 2011 the second is “Milk & Mummy” my online boutique selling beautiful breastfeeding clothes and launched in 2012, and the youngest is my son Oliver, born in August 2014. All three exhaust me, excite me and make me proud on a daily basis and naturally all vie for my attention! But of course I wouldn't have it any other way.
