I live in Palm Bay, Florida with my husband and five children. I have nursed all five of my children and love to encourage other moms to nurse their babies.
A big problem for many moms is the anxiety about breastfeeding in public. My husband and I dealt with those feelings whenever we were in public. I would be using a receiving blanket that only covered the front. My husband would be constantly trying to pull it around to the back and I kept pulling it back to the front, and then when the baby got older he would keep trying to pull it off!
So, by baby number three I was really ready for a change. My mom made me a poncho to nurse discreetly, and then when my friends started asking for ponchos, I tweaked the design until we were all happy! I started making them for friends and then their friends. Now I have a website and an Etsy store so that many other moms can enjoy the same comfort I have in breastfeeding…
