And the winner is…. Blanca. Here’s her story:
Hello Everyone! I’m a mother of a 28 week preemie! Not being able to nurse him directly I used to pump and bring the milk back to the hospital! After just 2 days my tiny baby started to show interest on the breast! This moved my heart. He started actually nursing 3 days after. I have a couple of NIP stories… Here’s the first one… I was at the park with my 3 daughters and my newborn son, and it was meal time! I pull my breast out to feed him and as he was nursing a little boy came to me and started to stare at me! All of the sudden, his mother came to grap him and he seems upset!, the mother then told me it was the first day of weaning baby! He looked at me so sad! I started thinking if my son would be the same way… I’m also his pacifier! I have a hospital grade breast pump @ home but after a while it was impossible to pump and go shopping for example. Since I had to pump every 1.5-2.5 hours to keep my milk supply going while the baby was in NICU I went to Walmart and started shopping. Then I realize that I coulnt wait to pump so I decided to purchase an electic breast pump! I went to the parking lot and started pumping in the car. My husband came to the car and I could tell he was a lil embarrased so he asked me to cover up a little! Anyway I put the shirt down still pumping, we stopped at the red light (I’m still pumping, but I looked like the shirt Madonna had in that video with the pointed boobs!) A car stopped next to us and the guy gave me thumbs up! What I next realized there it was his wife doing the same thing!
Don’t you just love this logo? I think it’s hilarious. Better yet, Boob, a Swedish company, has a wide range of maternity and nursing clothes. Here’s a description of how the nursing tops function.
