This is the story of how Daisy Cover was created...

I didn't know I needed a Daisy Cover until after my first child was born...
I first discovered that I was pregnant in March 2010 and straight away knew that I wanted to brestfeed my baby.

The further along I went into my pregnancy, the stronger I felt about this, had discussed it with family and friends, written it into my birthplan etc.

At the end of October I became a mother for the first time delivering a happy healthy little boy that we named Mylo. I attempted to feed him minutes after he was born (following the midwives advice) and things didn't seem to be going too well. We spent almost a week in hospital as the doctors and nurses were worried about Mylo not feeding and they began doing tests on him to see if he was unwell...

It wasn't until he was 5 days old that they discovered it was me that had the problem rather than Mylo! It was then that I turned to nipple shields to help to be able to feed my baby boy. We both took to these straight away and our breastfeeding journey began. The only problem was that it made feeding him more of a faff and almost impossible to do without flashing my full boob! At the time I was just grateful to be able to feed my baby myself and only breastfed him at home whilst using expressed bottles of breastmilk when we were out! (What a palavour that is)! I managed to breastfeed Mylo for 6 months before I had finally had enough of the breastpump! It wasn't until I discovered that I was pregnant with my second child in October 2011 that I thought about breastfeeding again.

This time I was determined to find a solution to my house-bound breastfeeding problem. I searched the market for a breastfeeding cover that didn't cost the earth, was convenient to use and didn't draw attention to the fact that I was breastfeeding. I had a simple product in mind and to my irritation it didn't exist...

That's when I decided to take matters into my own hands (literally) and make my own which I used regularly when feeding Maisy (my little girl born in July 2012). Friends, family and other breastfeeding mums commented on my home-made breastfeeding cover/poncho and that's when I decided to approach a factory to have more made for sale to other breastfeeding mothers.

That's when Daisy Cover was born...
