As a nursing mother, the tools that I have access to have made an enormous difference in my ability to successfully nurse my twins. It’s sad to me that not every mother has the resources or support that she needs to breastfeed. I’ve often heard that mothers in the lowest income brackets are the least likely to breastfeed and it’s sad because the benefits of breasfeeding to those babies and moms is huge . . . especially when you hear stories of mothers watering down formula just to fill tummies.
Daphne Oz, co-host of ABC’s The Chew, and mother of six-month old daughter Philomena has teamed up with nursing apparel leader BravadoDesigns and best-selling breastpump manufacturer Medela to donate $128,500 worth of Bravado nursing bras and Medela breastpumps to benefit mothers in need, through Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization founded by Jessica Seinfeld to provide help to families in need.
I had access to a hospital grade Medela breastpump and I know that I would not have been able to provide my twins with breastmilk during those early days when they were still developing their suck reflux. We got off to a strong start with the help of my pump and the hospital lactation consultants and are still going strong now. I love that so many moms are going to get the same opportunity with this partnership between Daphne Oz, Bravado, and Medela.
Oz says, “I am thrilled to be a part of this donation, because I have recent knowledge of how important it is to have a great support system when you are a new mother. In addition to that,having the items I needed to foster the breastfeeding process and give me an opportunity to bond with my baby in this way was something that I felt was so important in my life and my experience as a first-time mom. I love that I am able to play a role in giving that joy and support to the moms we will be helping.”

To celebrate this partnership Bravado is giving one Busy Mommy Media reader an Essential Nursing Tank in Tuscan Red!
I’ve been using one of the Bravado Essential Nursing Tanks for the past few months and it’s one of my favorites. I love that I don’t have to worry about showing off my leftover belly fat when I nurse my twins in public because the tank keeps everything covered. It provides great support without being constricting and is super comfortable. If you aren’t nursing right now, this would make a fabulous baby gift for a new mom in your life!
