As a nursing mother who was always on the go, I never felt confident nursing just anywhere. I frequently toted my first born around campus while pursuing my bachelor degree. Often I found myself heading to the restroom to nurse to gain any privacy. I did not want to stand out in a crowd with a blanket over my shoulder, yet I had the desire to be comfortable enough nursing anywhere…except for the bathroom stall!
My second pregnancy posed a different circumstance. I gave birth to triplets four months prematurely at 24 weeks gestation. With only two babies surviving they spent six months in the NICU. There was no privacy in the unit, and every time I attempted to nurse, everyone was there to witness. I wish at that time I had something that could have covered me, while enabling some private bonding moments with my little ones.
After countless conversations with nursing sisters and friends who have encountered many similar nursing woes, our experiences paved the creative path that I feel the bizzy babee wrap fully expresses.
The bizzy babee wrap was not only designed to give nursing mothers a new chic, modern look, but to give modest layering to cover your entire upper body to build nursing confidence. No more fussing with blankets that your infant can pull down or wearing unattractive nursing clothes. Our product is modest, lightweight and compact enough to fit into a purse or diaper bag.
The bizzy babee wrap is a necessity every nursing mother should own.
I met Ashlie in 2005 at a trade show in Sandy, Utah. Our booths were right next to each other at the baby expo. We hit it off immediately! We talked about our children, breastfeeding and of course business. A mother of two myself, Ashlie and I had a lot of stories to swap. We shared stories of nursing in fitting rooms and restrooms, and trying to get errands run with nursing babies. I consider myself to be very comfortable with my body yet still felt very uncomfortable nursing in front of people like my father in-law. Blankets didn’t quite cover up my post baby body when trying to lift up my shirt and get my son to latch on.
Although my babies were done nursing when I met Ashlie, I knew that the bizzy babee Nursing Cover was something that women needed. It was so functional and cute! I purchased them for all my friends and even use them at my son’s sporting games to cover up on chilly days.
After being committed to my corporate job for over 10 years I decided it was time to get involved in a product that I was already so passionate about. I joined bizzy babee in 2012 as the sales and marketing director and haven’t looked back.
