A Mother's Boutique Review and Giveaway

About the Shop:




A Mother’s Boutique is a work-at-home-mother (WAHM) business. My son was born in July 2005. After a 4-month maternity leave, I went back to work and survived for nearly 1 year working in corporate America before I decided that the long hours in the office and the out-of-town travel associated with my job were too much for me. In October 2006, I quit my corporate job to stay home with my son.


After a few months of being at home, I decided that I wanted to help other new mothers to breastfeed. Breastfeeding isn't always as easy as one might expect - and I wanted to help as many new mothers as possible to be successful in their efforts to breastfeed their babies.
When I was a new mother, I had a difficult time finding quality nursing clothing and products that would enable me to be successful at breastfeeding. I realized that this "unmet need" that I felt was also something that many other mothers also experienced. Coming from a business background, I decided this was something that I could use my corporate skills to develop a solution for. I realized that I would be able to meet my personal goals of spending more time with my son, while achieving professional goals of helping other new mothers succeed with breastfeeding. This led me to start up A Mother's Boutique.


A Mother’s Boutique is focused on helping new mothers breastfeed by providing all of the tools that new mothers need in one convenient location. From nursing tops to bathing suits to bras and breast pumps - A Mother’s Boutique carries everything that a new mother needs. I have selected the highest quality and most functional items (as well as many of my own personal favorites!) from several different designers to make sure that mothers shopping here get the best selection available. Based on my experience as a working mother, a stay-at-home mother and now a work-at-home mother, I have chosen items that will work for different kinds of mothers who are in different personal and professional parts of motherhood. I have chosen stylish business wear for the mother who is pumping at work or meeting her baby at lunch for nursing as well as comfortable casual wear for mothers who are on the go. I have also made sure to include stylish casual and dress wear for all types of occasions - for dressing up and dressing down.





Now for the Meat and Potatoes:









A Mother's Boutique has graciously given me a wonderful item to review. I absolutely loved it. Not only was it the most comfortable breastfeeding top that I have ever worn, but it was made with high craftmanship so that it was easy to nurse or to pump with ease. The ultimate best thing that I loved about this wonderful breastfeeding top was that it wasn't easily detectable that it was a breastfeeding top. So you could easily go out and wear it on a night on the town, to a romantic dinner with your significant other, or even to the office for working mothers! I love this top!



Well, guess what? Not only did I get a chance to sit here and enjoy this top so much, but A Mothers Boutique has graciously offered one of my readers their very own chance to win this same top in your choice of color or size!

Thanks for hosting this giveaway! That top is so chic.

All right, I couldn't decide, but I was drawn to the nursing dresses: I'm liking the cowl neck dress for flair, the Emily Chemise for summer prettiness, and the Dana 3/4 sleeve for practicality.
