Blessed with three sons, co-founder of Liefkees (www.etsy.com/shop/liefkees).
When my third son Isaac was still very small, I brought him along to our workshop (Liefkees children costumes) in Delft. As I was nursing him there, surrounded by all the soft and nicely colored fabrics, I started wondering why no one had yet thought of designing nursing pads that are truly comfy to wear. I went looking for the perfect nursing pad and found out, much to my astonishment, that not only were all nursing pads round (making them very visible under tight t-shirts), but also all so-called 'skin colored' nursing pads were designed for white skin.
And so, a few months after my youngest son was born, the idea for BoobBirds came to life. Soft, 'invisible' nursing pads for all skin colors, so every nursing mother can feel beautiful.
