Comfortable, stylish breastfeeding sweater, printed with our iconic Oxyflower design, inspired by the "love molecule" oxytocin.
This crewneck Human Milk sweatshirt has a nifty, stylish slit at the bottom of both side seams. The fabric drape and oversized style, with a longer back than front, means that lifting this sweater up for breastfeeding is super easy and discreet, leaving your back and tummy covered. Sizes XS to XXL. We make every effort for photos to be true to the garment's colour, however please note that some variation may occur.
Oxytocin is a hormone that induces feelings of well-being, connection and relaxation. It’s released in our bodies when we hug or kiss someone we love. The oxytocin in human milk enhances these feelings in both the child and the mother.
Oxytocin also causes the milk-ejection reflex, or letdown. It is carried through the bloodstream to the breast, where it causes contractions that carry the milk forward into the ducts. The milk then becomes available to our tiny humans through the nipple openings.
It also causes contractions of the uterus, which help to control bleeding after birth and shrink the uterus back to its pre-pregnancy size. The mother’s uterus contracts during feeds and for up to 20 minutes after the feed.
Oxytocin; love and practicality in one place. In the words of Liz Fraser in Massive Attack’s song Teardrop: “Love, love is a verb, love is a doing word”. Is that not the very definition of motherhood?
85% Organic Cotton - 15% recycled Polyester. Fabric washed, light sueded, 300 GSM.
Our test Mama Rachael said:
"These sweatshirts are ideal for feeding comfortably in. I find that the long length and oversized style makes it roomy enough to hoist up and down without any faff. The longer than average length also means you can easily wear a T-shirt underneath to do 'one up one down' for particularly discreet feeding and the fabric is so soft and feels like really good quality. Both colours are lovely and vibrant and work really well with the images. I would wear this out anywhere, even if my daughter wasn't with me!"
