“Near the forfront of the next generation of parenting tools...Red Tricycle is not your mother's parenting aide. Readers are razr-phone-toting, book-club-joining moms who at least know what a blackberry is."

Seattle Post Intelligencer April 2006

Thank you for being so smart, clever and witty! I’m enjoying my subscription and appreciate what you’re doing.

Your information reads like YOU are having fun and that’s worth a lot! Thanks for many good ideas.

Now that you finally have the boobs you've always wanted, why lock them up in a frumpy nursing bra? Burn that unflattering torture device and turn to Bella Materna. The Seattle-based company, the La Perla equivalent of the maternity world, believes it's possible to have hot bras, underthings and loungewear during pregnancy and beyond. Bella Materna's latest product, a sexy, padded nursing bra that hides those pesky nursing pad lines,

manages to look stylish while being supportive and utilitarian. The $64 underwire bras are lactation-consultant approved (we'll spare you a discussion about milk duct flow here -- you can thank us later) and made of soft, imported Italian nylon/lycra. Bra cups sport easy one-handed clasps for nursing access. Choose between black, white, nude and slate blue. Go on, make your flat-chested friends jealous while you can.

P.S. Rumor has it that Bella Materna has a line adorned with French lace in the works. Stay tuned.

Bella Materna products are carried at:
Village Maternity
2615 NE University Villge St (in the University Village Shopping Center)
Open daily 9 am - 9 pm. extended holiday hours, through December
