Meet Our Guest – 9 Months More

Let’s meet Jennifer, the proud owner of Nine Months More:

Hi, I’m Jennifer and I’m from Melbourne. I have 3 kids 12, 3 and 1. Puberty and teething at the one time, Yay!!
I run Nine Months More, an online recycled maternity shop. My last baby was a bit of a surprise and I had gotten rid of all my maternity clothes. When I went to buy some I found them ridiculously over priced. Being an op shopper from way back I searched high and low for somewhere who sold them second hand. I had no luck, and so Nine Months More was born.

Our Planet Matters!

We at Nine Months More are strong believers in the reduce, reuse, recycle campaign. It bothers me greatly the amount of pollution caused by creating a new garment that is only worn for nine months. I have always been interested in doing what I can to help the environment, and reduce my carbon footprint wherever I am able. Nine Months More is run on green energy and use recycled paper price tags and invoice paper among other things.

When visiting our site be sure to check out:

1.  Here for super, super cheap specials!!
2.  And here for items that can be used all year round!!
3.  And importantly, here, to see what people have to say about us!!

Three sites I’d really like to recommend you visit:

1. Mums and Bubs Gifts – For reasonably priced gifts for both Mum’s and babies with fantastic customer service
2. Clothes Lime – For gorgeous, quality recycled children’s wear.
3. Pregnancy Shop – For all preconception to birth products

Well that’s about it.

If there’s something you believe should be at Nine Months More feel free to post a comment!!

Meet our Guest: Breastmates

Let’s meet Frances, who is the busy owner of Breastmates:

Hi, I’m Frances from Breastmates. I live in Noo Zeelund with my two sons who are little lads now, and a very tolerant husband.

About your site…

I run Breastmates which is a specialty breastfeeding and maternity store. I was inspired to start this business in 2005 when my son was 6 months old. I went to a baby shop but none of the retail assistants seemed to know anything about the breast pumps they were selling. That was my light bulb moment. I was already making reusable breast pads and selling on Auction Sites, but it was then that I realized I could become a specialty breastfeeding store online. So I have slowly grown my website (all D.I.Y) and added products as the time has gone on, and am now a recognized brand in New Zealand. We have plans for Australia due to more customers coming from there.

Our Planet Matters!

Well this is a really good question. Before we started our family, I used to be an Environmental Engineer and worked at a consultancy. The thing that concerns me most for the environment, is the throw-away society that we are.

Where do we go first when visiting Breastmates?

1. The gorgeous maternity and breastfeeding lingerie. This is the main thing that draws people to our website. We also have a sizing guide with a demo video so you can learn how to measure yourself at home. We also have a nifty calculator so that you enter your size and then the website shows you all the bras that are in stock in that size, so you don’t have to go through everything.

2. Have a look at the Articles section that I’ve been growing, based on the hundreds of emails that I get sent each week asking me simple breastfeeding (and bottle feeding) questions. This indicated to me that there is a lack of information, or someone that will simple answer questions honestly, which is what I can do. (and welcome guest contributors if anyone would like to share their story).

3. Have a look at the sale section as we often have big clearances!

3 Sites Frances recommends you visit:

1. Breastmates – This is my Facebook page, and although I’m plugging my own page, its actually grown into a supportive community with thousands of mums.

2. Mums on Top – a great forum to belong to, and they also have a great section just for mumpreneurs.

3. Diaper Decisions
