It’s World Breastfeeding Week 🥰 . This week really means a lot to us, since so many of our customers are mums themselves. This image is where it all started, thanks to @kirstie_edwards26 for sharing it with us way back in 2017.


Breastfeeding can be tough and dressing for easy feeding can be even harder, just ask our own CEO Emma, pictured below with her twins, Clara & Quinn.emma-silkfred-breastfeeding

Whilst breastfeeding is a natural process, it is not always easy. Mothers need support.
