You all may know Judy Masucci from A Mother’s Boutique – she has been a long-time sponsor of The Leaky Boob, a mom and a breastfeeding advocate. Well, she’s back with a new venture – One Creative Mama – cute breastfeeding advocacy gear for babies. What a great way to show the world how much you and your little one love breastfeeding! Judy is excited to introduce you to her new company and give 5 lucky Leakies some great gear too!
TLB: What should TLB readers know about One Creative Mama?
Judy: One Creative Mama was founded by a mom, lactation educator and breastfeeding advocate. Her name was Sarah – and I used to purchase her items for my store. About 2-3 years ago, Sarah stopped making the One Creative mama items because she has changed her focus to in-person mentoring of moms instead of making products. So I decided to buy the business and give it a new look. I took all of Sarah’s great breastfeeding advocacy sayings and made them into cute colorful shirts and rompers – so that babies can tell the world just how much they love breastfeeding!
TLB: What’s the inspiration behind One Creative Mama?
Judy: I am a huge breastfeeding advocate. When the original owner of One Creative Mama decided that she wasn’t going to continue with her business anymore, I decided to carry on where she left off. I love her creative sayings and I knew that I could build this business into a way for moms and babies to express themselves and their love for nursing in a cute, whimsical way. It gives moms a chance to show off their babies and it tells the world that bresatfeeding is so normal – it’s on a baby’s shirt!
TLB: How is breastfeeding advocacy important and how does One Creative Mama support breastfeeding?
Judy: Normalizing breastfeeding is so important because when something is “normal” then everything gets easier. Women won’t have to worry about being scorned for breastfeeding or asked to leave their location. We have laws in place, but the best way to help normalize breastfeeding is to do it – openly and publically. And wearing shirts that tell the world you are breastfeeding also serve to normalize it. So for mom and baby – we make cute, whimsical shirts and rompers that are fun to wear and fun to give as gifts. And for the world – it’s one small step toward the normalization of breastfeeding as the normal way of feeding your baby.
TLB: What’s your favorite breastfeeding tip?
Judy: My favorite tip is to stick with it. In the early days, everything is difficult and lack of sleep can make it seem like it won’t get any easier. But if you stick with it through the early days, it will get easier and you will get to enjoy a wonderful bonding session with your baby time and time again.
