MamaScarf Breastfeeding Cover-Up Giveaway!

I'll never forget the first outing with my newborn daughter and three year old son in tote. I had to go to the mall to get a dress for a semi-formal dinner, and I had nothing that fit me well postpartum. I packed up the baby bag, extra clothes, and snacks for my son, and extra breast pads. My milk had just come in, and my daughter wanted to feed ALL.OF.THE.TIME. I fed her before leaving, and headed across the street (almost literally) to the mall. I figured if I could find something quickly, I would make it home before having to feed her again.

While darting between big name department stores, her very well known hunger cry started. I remember looking around, seeing all of the older people walking, and tons of young children, and didn't feel that it was appropriate to whip out a boob and start feeding her on a bench. Then the idea hit to head back into Macy's and hide in a fitting room. There I sat, feeding my daughter thinking there had to be a better way.

Women everywhere struggle with this situation around the globe. In fact, a similar situation happened to the owner and creator of the MamaScarf, and inspired her to create a product for breastfeeding moms to be able to wear and feel confident while breastfeeding anywhere.

Stylish and available in neutral colors that coordinate with almost any outfit, the MamaScarf ties around your neck and shields any onlookers from your breast feeding experience. Your child can play with the fabric, without it falling or exposing you, and it's sturdy enough to provide a little extra support when your pillows and cushions just aren't available.

MamaScarf has been featured on television shows such as This Morning, the BBC, and Working Lunch. They have been published in popular printed media such as The Sun and Daily Express. The MamaScarf is a celebrity must-have, and have been spotted on several celebrities including ex-Spice Girl, Melanie C.

I just started breastfeeding, and did it in public a couple of times with just a regular scarf, which was not the easiest thing to manage, these look way easier.

While I was breastfeeding my daughter I was working too and she would NOT take a bottle, so her daddy had to drive her up to my work(a gas station) every time she was hungry and I had to run out to the vehicle and feed her in between customers!

Phunkyrockgal July 22, 2009  

I remember the first time I had to breastfeed my first son in public. I was terrified. I was walking through a store looking for a dress and he was screaming. The sales lady came up to me and told me she thought he needed to be fed and that I could go into one of the changing rooms if I'd like. I did and was very grateful.

Was wearing my "Swedish milk cups" a plastic cup that goes in your bra to absorb the breastmilk overflow" over my already big boobs-under my green turtleneck sweater. Was at the butcher counter looking for meat and looked up to see all the guys behind the glass staring at me. SO EMBARASSED!!! I always wore a jacket after that even when it was hot.
