Seraphine at John Lewis – Voucher Giveaway!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

To celebrate the launch of the Seraphine maternity and nursing range at John Lewis, I have £50 of John Lewis vouchers to giveaway to one lucky reader.

I was keen to take a look at the range as it’s always good to see nursing wear in high street stores. At first glance the clothes are lovely, but other than one breastfeeding top, it looked like it was all just maternity wear. Don’t be put off – not only are there lots that work well from pregnancy to breastfeeding, but when you click through and read the descriptions, you realise that a number of the designs are made for nursing mums too. As it’s not always immediately obvious, I’ve highlighted breastfeeding friendly Seraphine designs here.

My range highlight is the knitwear, which is really well-thought out for future nursing mums. It’s always hard to find something other than a cardigan for warm winter feeds, so I would definitely have been tempted by a jumper designed for the purpose, had I actually been able to find one when I was breastfeeding.

Seraphine Maternity/Nursing Jumper
The top of this jumper pops down for breastfeeding access. Also available in purple.
Seraphine Crossover Jumper
The crossover top on this jumper is designed to accommodate breastfeeding and the tummy will stretch back over your diminishing belly.

Win George at Asda vouchers for World Breastfeeding Week

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week (1st-8th August, 2012), MilkChic has teamed up with lots of breastfeeding friendly retailers to give nursing mums a treat. Today, it’s the turn of George at Asda, who are giving away a £50 voucher to one lucky mum!

George at AsdaSince pregnancy, I’ve got a bit more adventurous with fashion. Where previously I was a dress for your shape kinda girl (in my case, empire line / 50s styles… anything that would make my boobs seem less of a liability), now I’m more likely to try new things. Getting dressed used to be a lot easier when I was certain what worked, but it’s a lot more fun now I’m not ruling out shapes on sight. I bought my first ever pair of skinny jeans in Asda when small one was a few months old and they stock loads of breastfeeding-friendly styles at affordable prices, so you can experiment with new looks without breaking the bank.

*Word to the wise: If you’re trying to budget, close your eyes as you go past the kids section. I seem unable to walk by without picking up something.

Here are my picks of the current range… Gorgeous prints in classic dress shapes:




Animal Print Cotton Summer Dress, £12
Button front for breastfeeding access

Floral Print Shirt Dress, £20
Shirt dresses are brilliant for breastfeeding access, and this is just gorgeous!

Moda Printed Jersey Dress, £16
The crossover neckline will stretch for breastfeeding access.

Funky flat shoes:




Bird Print Canvas Shoes, £8

Aztec Print Canvas Shoes, £8

Patent Contrast Ballet Shoes, £10

Something to keep in the baby bag for when the weather isn’t “quite” as summery as you’d hoped:

This Crown Print Pac a Poncho is a good shape for breastfeeding in – wear with anything underneath and just lift up to feed.

(Other designs are also available)

And finally, some breastfeeding friendly nightwear to curl up in at the end of the day:




Floral Print Jumpsuit, £10
Button front for breastfeeding access

Ruffle Trim Pyjama Top, £6
Button placket will stretch for nursing access. I’d wear this with the Animal Print Pyjama Bottoms, £6
