Whilst it's lovely to be invited to a wedding with your newborn, it can also be rather daunting. I should know, I felt just the same with my first baby. As well as ensuring they don't scream during the ceremony and that they aren't passed around the adoring relatives like a parcel, there's the rather major decision of what to wear that you can breastfeed in. You probably won't have a private room where you can strip off to feed, and you shouldn't have to. Baby may want feeding at a moment's notice so you need easy and quick access to your boobs.
Whilst it may be possible to improvise with normal clothes, this is one occasion when many mums feel they don't want to. They want to feel glamorous and dressed up along with the other guests. Breastfeeding shouldn't compromise your style.
Here at Milk & Mummy we specialise in breastfeeding dresses for special occasions. From personal experience, it was failing miserably to find a breastfeeding dress to wear to a friend's wedding that gave me the final push to set up Milk & Mummy back in 2012. These days we get so much demand for glamorous breastfeeding dresses and we love sourcing and selling them. We've even come to the rescue of several breastfeeding bridesmaids, much to the bride's relief!
Every wedding season we ensure we have a wide range to choose from, from pretty prints to striking jewel colours, from flirty frocks to marvellous maxis and at prices to suit every budget. We know how difficult it can be to get the right fit and size, especially at a time when your body shape is changing. This is why we now offer free returns, so mums can try on plenty of different styles and sizes in the comfort of their own homes with no pressure to keep them. If you live locally to Cambridge we'll quite happily welcome you for a fitting appointment at our own address and we're also able to advise on our different styles and give recommendations over the phone, if you want some extra guidance.
