When I became a mother, I was surprised by many things – most of all, I was surprised by my intense, overwhelming, and unconditional
love for my child.
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no
I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep, your eyes close.”
– Pablo Neruda
So when my child went pale and unresponsive in my arms one day from a rare food allergy later diagnosed as FPIES – Food Protein Induced Intercolitis Syndrome, I was committed to doing my part to ensure my sweet boy never suffered like that again.
Since my milk was the only guaranteed source of safe, healthy, and beneficial nutrition for my son, breastfeeding evolved from something I should do, to something I must do.
My commitment took me to creative lengths to ensure my child’s nourishment - I regularly nursed in some of the worst bathrooms, in my car in countless parking lots, in fitting rooms in nearly every store, you name it. I didn’t feel comfortable enough to nurse openly in public, and the current nursing covers either didn’t offer me enough coverage or frankly, were too embarrassing to wear in public.
So, I took matters into my own hands and developed Cloak & Cuddle as a fashionable, functional breastfeeding cape that gives mothers the freedom to comfortably nurse wherever and whenever, encouraging mothers to embrace breastfeeding and for even longer than they could have imagined.
I’ve happily donned Cloak & Cuddle on my first post-baby vacation all through the flight, while hands-free pumping and driving to and from work, and while enjoying the outdoors on park benches everywhere! It worked wonders. I felt gratified and fabulous; my son felt satiated and loved.
And so I wanted to share Cloak & Cuddle with all of you.
Cloak yourself in style, Cuddle your child with love.
