August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month! Twenty years ago the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) launched the World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) campaign to focus and facilitate actions to protect, promote and support breastfeeding. The campaign theme was "Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative." World Breastfeeding Week is now officially celebrated annually from August 1st - 7th. To celebrate, I'll be having a few fun giveaways each week in August. The first giveaway for our Breastfeeding Awareness Month giveaways is sponsored by Lady Lait, the premiere apparel collection for nursing mothers!
Lady Lait's creator is a Tulsa, Oklahoma momma and I love, love, love supporting local businesses and mommas. So, it's always exciting to spotlight a local momma and share their wonderful business with you! The Lady Lait apparel line includes comfortable wraps, tunics, leggings and camisoles! Sarah Shibley, the creator of Lady Lait, designed the Lady Lait apparel line to be comfortable, yet luxurious. Inspired by the comfort of your favorite pajamas and the elegance of your most fabulous little black dress, the exquisite Lady Lait maternity and nursing separates create a new level of style you deserve, with looks you are sure to love. Being a momma is rewarding, yet can be overwhelming and exhausting at times. It's a tough job and every hardworking momma deserves to feel pampered and look chic.
Each stylish piece in the Lady Lait collection will last you beyond your pregnancy and nursing days. The classic colors and designs with their clean and simple lines will be the perfect complement for any momma during her pregnancy and well after her precious baby is born. In fact, I'm not a nursing momma, but I have absolutely loved wearing the Vivian Versatile Wrap. Lady Lait was gracious to allow me to try their wrap over the past few weeks. Vivian Versatile Wrap is available in three colors: Black, Magenta and Slate. The Vivian Versatile Wrap is also available in sizes: S/M (0-8) and L/XL (10-16). Complete with a hoodie and optional tie, this wrap is so comfortable. I personally have loved wearing this wrap without the tie. The Vivian Versatile Wrap is so chic and stylish, and has complemented each and every camisole and tank that I have paired with it. The hoodie is a great feature that will be wonderful during the fall and winter months, and even during a light fall or winter drizzle. The wrap's front panels are designed for ease in swaddling baby close to you, or using as nursing covers.
Now, the Oklahoma summer over the past few days has been sweltering with temperatures soaring over 100 degrees. While it's a little warm to wear the Vivian Versatile Wrap outside, this wrap would be perfect in a cool movie theater where it's always a little chilly regardless of the temperatures outside. So, during the summer months this wrap would be great to keep in your car or diaper bag. You'll then have something light, yet cozy for anywhere indoors where the air conditioning might be a little strong. I have to say that I can't wait for the fall, so I can sport my Lady Lait Vivian Versatile Wrap every day!
Besides the Vivian Versatile Wrap, the Lady Lait collection includes an awesome camisole. The Belle Camisole is available in black and ivory. It's available in sizes S (0-4), M (6-8), L (10-12) and XL (14-16). The Belle Camisole features a moisture-wicking soft shapewear panel sewn into the empire seam all the way around the bottom half of the garment that helps flatten and gently smooth the postpartum tummy, sides, and back, all while keeping you dry. Pair the Belle Camisole with the Lady Lait Vivian Versatile Wrap and Lou Cropped Pant, and you have the perfect loungwear piece to wear at home and comfortably nurse your little one.
