KBBF Advent Event - BoobieMilk

My name is Karen, and I run the company BoobieMilk from my home in Kent.  The business has been open since June 2011, just a couple of months after my youngest was born.  I work around my family comittments to provide a great nursing bra fitting service in and around Sevenoaks, Kent and I also provide online help and sell nursing bras and breastfeeding accessories through my website.

My background is in nutrition and breastfeeding counseling and support, and I love volunteering once a week as a peer supporter with my daughter to help local women achieve their own breastfeeding goals.  I was very lucky to have a great support network when I had my eldest and I'm now breastfeeding my youngest at the age of 31 months.  I've been wearing nursing bras for over 6 years now and I personally test each and every one before approving it for the website.

I stock a great range of comfortable and seamless nursing bras that are great throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding and are a great value because of this.  I often meet pregnant women who are very uncomfortable in their maternity bras and have found that they dig in under the bust very quickly.  The seamless comfortable bras that I stock all have a wide underband that often leads to women refuding to take them off after the fitting.  The bras are completely seamless so great for sleeping in too, and they have flexible cups which removes the need to keep buying new bras as you grow throughout pregnancy and when your milk volume increases.  They really can be worn from conception to weaning.

For those needing a little bit more support or who are used to a wired bra, the Hotmilk range of nursing bras provide amazing support and go up to a generous H cup.  Carriwell have also just released a seamless and flexible cup nursing bra where they have replaced the metal wire with a channel of gel which is soft on the breast but provides great support.

The best part of my work is getting to visit all the lovely new Mums and Mums-to-be (and babies) in their own home.  I find it such a relaxed shopping experience and I remember trying to shop with a newborn was quite stressful for me so I try to make it as laid back as possible.  If baby needs to feed that's OK.  If you have to force me to snuggle with your newborn baby while you have hands free to try on bras then that's just what I have to do LOL!  My goal is always to find what is most comfortable for you and provide bras that will last you as long as you need them for.

If you wuld like an in-home fitting please contact me at or message me on Facebook.  I can also be contacted at 07951 600777, text is OK if baby is asleep.
