Meet the Mama Behind our Nursing Clothes Brand

Brittani Velasquez is the CEO and founder ñuñuy Nursing Apparel. We are a breastfeeding apparel company dedicated to high-quality, sustainable, and ethical fashion.

As a mother of three, Brittani has first-hand experience with births that didn’t go as planned. Along with significant challenges breastfeeding her babies. Read about her experience breastfeeding her first daughter in this blog post. As she adjusted to her postpartum body and the logistics of breastfeeding, Brittani had anxiety over nursing in public. She felt uncomfortable, exposed, and worried about the judgment of people around her. Nursing clothes were a game-changer! However, as a home sewist herself, there were things she wished were different in the quality and design of the nursing clothes she discovered.

At ñuñuy Nursing Apparel, our mission is to provide sustainable and stylish clothing options for breastfeeding moms. We believe in using organic and ethically sourced materials to create comfortable and durable clothing that promotes a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle. Our goal is to empower breastfeeding mothers through our collection of high-quality, functional, and fashionable nursing clothes. We strive to make a positive impact on our community and the environment, while providing exceptional customer service.

Why do we Manufacture our Nursing Clothes in Peru?

Brittani married into a Peruvian family. Her travels and excursions there helped inspire the creation of ñuñuy Nursing Apparel. Peru is close to our hearts – and is also home to the highest quality cotton in the entire world! When the idea for the company was born, it was an easy choice to source the fabric and manufacture our breastfeeding clothes in Peru.
