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, conscious, 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 clothing design.
Instead of clothing that shows wear after just a few washes – she longed for softer and higher quality pieces. ñuñuy Nursing Apparel was born to offer long-lasting, stylish, and luxuriously soft clothes. Our pieces are versatile enough to meet the dynamic demands of any breastfeeding mother’s life.
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.
