The time has finally come for Max & Mee; I have had word from our wonderful manufacturers in Bali that our first order has been picked up ready for shipping.
A lot has changed in the two years since Maxwell was born. Looking back I understand how underprepared I was for this motherhood thing. I remember how daunted I felt trying to nurse in public for the first time, desperately wanting to be one of these care free, beautiful mums for whom it all appears graceful and effortless.
After a pregnancy, you just want to slip back into all those favourite wardrobe pieces that were 'bumped' off the rack. Post baby, I remember being disappointed to find very few of my old faithfuls were flattering or functional for nursing. So I trolled the internet (what else to do during late night feeding?) in search on some pieces which were fashionable, functional and most of all affordable. To little or no avail.
The more I talked to my mum friends the more I realised that I was not the only one with this problem. So with this in mind I began experimenting with some ideas for a clothing line for mums just like me. We have so many exciting ideas for our label as we grow, based on feedback from mums just like you.
Now, two years on, I am sitting here feeding Billie our daughter who was born in September and I am happy to say that our first shipment of clothes is on its way.
It's been an exciting journey so far, much more to follow..
With love, Max & Mee xoxo
