Next Thursday I will have been breastfeeding for a year!  So stoked about that, I’m totally crossing my fingers that Nixon will keep going at least until August when his pull-through operation will take place as it will help comfort him so much to be able to breastfeed when he is in pain and just wants to be held.  Ethan spontaneously quit around this time, but thankfully Nix shows no signs of dropping feeds, though he can easily go without if I’m not around.

Full term breastfeeding means I am still quite conscious of what I’m wearing and how easy it is to feed Nixon in a given outfit.  At this time of year layering is essential and a versatile cardi is a key piece that every Mama should have in her wardrobe arsenal.  The Breastmates Waterfall Drape Cardi ticks all the boxes and more for me.

The super soft Modal/Spandex blend was thicker and warmer than I had expected, with the added benefit of being the MOST comfy thing to wear ever!  The asymmetric hemline is so on trend, but unlike other cardigans I have seen in this cut, the back is the perfect butt-covering length.  The waterfall drape is a perfect, built-in nursing cover.  Nixon is too huge and too old to enjoy being covered up while feeding but this would be such a lovely addition to a new Mum’s wardrobe or any Mum with a younger baby who prefers a bit of privacy when nursing – without the added hassle of a separate wrap or cover.

This is a really, lovely, quality addition to my wardrobe and is something that I will continue to wear long after my breastfeeding days are done :::::sob:::::.

I saved the best for last.  The price.  $39.90. I would pay twice the price for this.  No joke.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Bahahaha – antlers!! Seriously though, the cardy looks awesome, and you look as beautiful as ever! I still wear my Breastmates nursing top, even though I haven't nursed for 6 months now, as it is super comfy and I really like it. And lastly, yay for one year of nursing! xx

  2. love the outfit Mel, you can never have too many black cardis! I'm always on the hunt for a good one, thanks for the tip. x G

  3. You look gorgeous! Am thinking I need one of those cardi's and I'm not even feeding… Also LOVE the orange polka dot pocket on your shirt. One of my favourite colour combos!

  4. ^ It’s pencil and woclrtoeaur. With some digital colouring on her dress and lips.Thanks all, so glad you like! Will be sharing the rest very soon 🙂 x

  5. Two adult sweaters at once – that`s brave! I am in love with seed stich at the moenmt, so of course I like the look of this yellow cardi. I feel the urge to knit myself a sweater too, but it`s all about christmas and baby presents right now. Next year, I hope… Good luck with yours!
