If you haven’t already seen on my Instagram, I came across Mumba bra about 30weeks into my pregnancy and thank goodness I did…
Mumba Bra was set up by Elizabeth Morana after she came across the common breastfeeding problems that a lot of us Mummies experience through our breastfeeding journeys…things like forgetting which breast you last fed on, baby pulling off to look around the room and taking your nipple with them, having a slight coverup to give you a little more comfort when out in public and so on…
Her clever design features numbered clips (1-4) to remind you which side you were last on. On one side there are the numbers 1 &3 and 2&4 on the other. The idea is you always start at the lower number and then once that feed is finished you move the clip to the higher number and therefore keeping track of the feeding and sides really easily. This stops the need for mobile phone apps or the little trick of swapping a bobble from wrist to wrist (which I always forgot to do anyway). She has also included a very eye catching black and white baby focus print on the cover up part. This helps keep the babies eyes focused during feeding and stops them getting so easily distracted (no more nipple pulling)…Bonus!
Our experience with the bra has been nothing but positive. I managed to get mine early July, meaning they were here in time for baby boys arrival. I was sent a purple one for the purpose of this review but instantly knew I would want another so managed to pre order a white one too. When they arrived I was so pleased with them, they are made of really soft, stretch material which for growing feeding boobies is ideal. This was mega noticeable on day three when my milk came in and they grew about 10 times in size. The bra let them grow and remained comfortable rather than restricting them and pressing that milk back in! Not only are they really comfortable around the boobies but also around the back, they have a decent strap, so really supportive over the shoulder and also a three clasp back fastener, which doesn’t ride up. I’d say the fit of it is pretty similar to that of a sports bra, which in my opinion is amazing as I would so rather wear a sports bra over a normal bra.
Over the past few days, now little lamb is opening his eyes a little more whilst feeding, I have noticed him focusing on the black and white pattern. He must of spent a good 10 minutes (which for an 11 day old is quite a long time) with his eyes open staring at it whilst feeding, I also think it helped him keep a good rhythm, he wasn’t distracted by looking at anything else or closing his eyes and falling asleep ha I know that as he grows up he will love looking at it and hopefully it’ll help us with those pesky problems!
I would highly recommend this bra to all Mummies…I love it and I’m so glad I have two! They have some gorgeous designs and different colours, but overall for me it’s the comfort they offer. When those boobies are feeling a little sore in the first few weeks, this is the bra you need!
