Thanks Janine for your nice feedback!



I love my breastmates dresses so much. Wish I had discovered breastmates while I was preg and not wasted $ on maternity dresses I can't feed in!





Thank you Fiona, for this nice review about our Breastfeeding Top


ProductName: Goddess Drape Top

Rating: 5

This is my favourite breast feeding top . It looks good, the material feels nice and it's quick and easy to open up when you have a hungry baby demanding a feed. Please please make this in more colours

Breastfeeding Sweatshirt Review

A HUGE thanks to Sophie @sophiemoo2 for her review of our Chillax Breastfeeding Sweatshirt.



Note to  myself for future reference.   [To read on days of self doubt]



“This breastfeeding journey will be nearing an end soon (some time?) and it's been an absolute pleasure to work with Breastmates for over a year now. I still wear each piece of clothing I have had the pleasure of trying, and although its been worn and worn and washed and washed, the quality and style have all stood the test of time. I continue to love Breastmates, and wear their designs week to week.”

Maternity Pants

#customer love from Kim about our  Zen Maternity Pants


These are great value for money and fit perfectly! I usually wear a medium (size 10-12 when not pregnant) and ordered these in medium and even at 34 weeks pregnant, they fit so comfortably. They are long enough for my height (176cm) without dragging on the ground and the waist-band that comes up over bump is loose enough to feel good whilst tight enough to not roll down! The fabric is also thin enough to not be stifling like my regular trackies. Thanks for this result =>

Hotmilk Bra

Oooh a new bra just popped up on my website!  I just unloaded the stock this afternoon, and reloaded my racks.  (excuse the pun!!)

Hotmilk Eternal Bra.  This is quite a basic black bra, (in terms of the Hotmilk standard which usually has some bling and lace).  Perfectly simple!

Feedback about Breastmates Tunic

Some #customerlove from Jodie.  Quite relieved to read this actually, as its for one of my  own designs (by Franny) for winter!


"I ordered a tunic from Breastmates and I love it! The material is lovely and soft, great quality too. I ordered Tuesday morning and it arrived Wednesday mornimg - wow! It's the little personalized touches that also impress me - lovely little note and wrapped so nicely, thanks Franny" 


I invited some friends to 'like' your Facebook page and have told our ante natal group about your site  : ) 


Definitely love the red sleeves!!!!!

Kai Carrier Revivew

Thank you Sarah for this product review about the: Kai Carrier


Having a baby with food sensitivities means that we tend to make most of her food.  These Kai carriers have made life so much easier.  Great distraction snack to help get around the supermarket.  And she likes to hold on to it and feed herself (7mth old) which she can do without too much mess.  I've found the best way to wash them is by using a bottle brush

Chuchu Teat Review

Customer review of the ChuChu teat that we have. 



I thought you would like to know that I had great success with the chu chu teats which were suggested by Plunket to help my baby breast feed.  She had been started on bottles initially as she couldn't latch and two weeks down the line I was having lots of difficulty getting her to breast feed. After 24 hours of using the teats, I tried her again at the breast and she just got it!  That was over a week ago and we haven't looked back since!  I have told the other mums in my coffee group and my midwife.



Hydrogel Breast Discs , these are the #1 item that I recommend any preggie mum packs into her hospital bag.

Comment received from Sarah


Hydrogel Breast Discs



Everyone should get some of these.  They are so soothing and really sped up the recovery of my really cracked nipples.  Had felt like I wasn't getting anywhere with using lanolin cream.  Once I used these gel pads I saw a dramatic improvement in a really short time.  I was stoked and my midwife was impressed too.  


I gave some to my sister-I-L.  She initially didn't think that she had enough of a reason to use them.  I insisted she tried them, the next day I got an excited text message saying that they were amazing!! Took the discomfort of getting latching sorted away.

Note To Self

A note to myself for future reference.  

Dear Franny - remember that people think you are nice. 

Quote from Jess "I think you’re doing an incredible job, and that Breastmates is an incredible business that you do so well at promoting. You do a wonderful job of being a friendly face behind your company, so that we all know you are a lovely woman and not just a faceless company!

Nappy Bag Review

#customer love

Thank you Stephanie for this nice review about Nappy Bag Mode

Rating: 5



I just got this and have really enjoyed the first couple of days of 'road tests.'  It's got lots of room for my baby's spare nappies and clothing change, plus my bits and pieces, and little extras like some small toys and a library book.  The straps are comfortable to wear over my shoulder.  I ended up not using the clip ons to attach the bag to a pram because it doesn't suit my pram design well, but they're useful for hanging toys off.


Levels of service-wise, I'm very happy with Breastmates - delivery was in three working days with an email when the package got sent.  The clothes I ordered at the same time came wrapped in tissue paper for that 'treat' feeling.

Clip on Cami Review

#customer love.  Thank you Sue for this nice feedback:




Rating: 5

I have two of these Nursing Camis and I am about to purchase another couple ! I can't stand the feeding singlets with a bulky built in bra that does nothing ! However this is perfect - I get to wear a nice supportive feeding bra and have a nice practical layer that keeps me modestly covered, I am a size 12 and M is a perfect fit. And Franny's customer service is impeccable :)

Pregnancy Brief

Comment: These are amazing! it is so comfortable, it stretches with your grwoing body doesnt feel like youre wearing anything! highly recommend!


Breastfeeding Hoodie

Thankyou April for this lovely feedback!


This breastfeeding hoodie should be a staple in any breastfeeding mum's wardrobe.  It is made of really high quality fleece, is warm, and aside from the obvious practical element to its design it actually manages to look well fitting and stylish.  This will be worn well after the breastfeeding has stopped!  I love it.

Maternity Tights

#customer love from Kim about our Footless Maternity Tights


Comment: These tights are a wonder product. No longer do I have to hope that a pair of tights will fit my tall-extra tall leg length!! These look smallish when off and are relatively tight to pull on, but they stretch out to amazing proportions and stay up without constricting my circulation/34 week pregnant bump! I know they will fit fine afterwards too and help to hold any initially floppy belly in!

Maternity Top

#customer love from Kim about our Nourish Maternity Nursing Top


This top in medium fits me even at max pregnancy size and will do once bubs is born too (I usually wear a 10-12 when not pregnant). The fabric is high quality and the ease of access re paneling entrance to feeding bra is very easy. Can we get it in more colours?? =>  (Franny says: ‘working on it!”

Hotmilk Nightie

A 5 star review from Kaylie today


HOTmilk Nightie - Show Stopping

Rating: 5

Comment: I wore this in pregnancy and now breastfeeding. It is pretty and sexy but give good support and doesn't show too much skin, easy to breast feed in. My mother even said she wished they had nightware like this to breast feed in in her day. Can't go past Hotmilk.
