is the “hot mama
” behind this 100% pure organic line: Hot Mama Gowns
. The concept was born around the same time as her daughter (May 2006) and in reaction to the itchy, chemical laden gown she was provided by the hospital. It wasn’t functional, stylish and, most importantly, it got in the way of skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding. What better fabric for your child to be laid on minutes after birth? I wish this would’ve been around when I had my daughter in 2005.
This is a gown you can use to strut around the hospital room in or solely for chilling out with your babe. All of the gowns are hospital/birthing center friendly with short sleeves and a full coverage snap-open back. They also have two ribbon-tied panels which allows for quick and easy access for discreet nursing.
Hot Mama gowns are available in sizes 2 to 24, which is a great range considering women’s sizes can change drastically while pregnant. They’re also at a great price point, ranging from $15 to $89.
My favorite color is pink, so it’s probably no surprise that the “Emma” gown below is my favorite ($59).
My second favorite is the “LeAnne” gown below ($89)…I think it’s because of the sunny color which matches the mood of a new angel being brought into this world.
Deidrea also offers custom orders
! This is ideal for women who are shorter or taller than average…or just have specific requests. It is quite an easy process: email her with your idea and they will try their best to create it with all of your requirements. To make sure it’s what you want, they even send you a sample garment for approval before making the final product. Pictured below is a beautiful custom order that I’m quite fond of (and yes, it’s pink!).
Deidrea also offers a range of accessories from Booby Tubes
($20 – a natural, safe, gel-free breast pack made with a 100% organic cotton shell and filled with all-natural flax seed to be used to help reduce the swelling and tenderness of engorgement and comfort breasts during weaning) to swaddling blankets
($25) made from 100% Organic Cotton backed with 100 percent Organic Cotton fleece.
