 About Us


MotherNeeds started out when I realized the importance of breastfeeding and the benefits associated with extended breastfeeding. I wanted to nurse our first son (we now have 2
) for as long as we both are comfortable with it (he weaned at 2-1/2 years old). As much as I wanted to breastfeed, I did not like being confined to  our home.  

My attempt to shop for discreet nursing wear, yield very few options for nursing wear that were both beautiful and and affordable. Hence, I decided to make gorgeous and affordable nursing wear available to all moms. With valuable help from family in Singapore and Indonesia, MotherNeeds was successfully created.

Our clothes are designed by myself with inputs from close friends and  family (especially my mother, who looks  incredible on any given day). We contracted a few seamstress friends who, as fellow mothers, share the same understanding of a typical parenting schedule - juggling motherhood and work commitments. With this, our clothes were finally lovingly produced.

When you wear our apparel, you can take comfort in knowing that our designs have been tried and tested by mothers. Additionally, I personally enjoy sharing my breastfeeding experience, so fellow moms can benefit by avoiding some of the mistakes I made, in order to attain success at breastfeeding. I hope that the creation of MotherNeeds will positively contribute to the lives of all nursing mothers. All the best to mothering!

I vaguely heard about nursing clothes, which are designed to help one nurse discreetly. This idea was entirely new to me. And so I embarked on my quest to buy one but found that there were just a handful of retailers or merchants selling decent clothes at affordable prices (ok, so I'm a cheapskate as I'd rather be spending my money on our little darling).

It was then that I realized that I can actually help mothers like myself by providing affordable nursing wear. And that was how MotherNeeds got kick started. I'd like to think of my in-laws in Singapore and my family in Indonesia, as my infrastructral backbone; because their help allowed me to get this business started (saved me a lot on babysitting services when there was somewhere I had to go where I couldn't take our son).

Our clothes are designed by myself with some valuable inputs from my mother (who at her age, looks more stylish than me!). We contracted the help of a few seamstress friends, who are themselves mothers. Hey, we mothers have to support one another, right? It is a mutually beneficial relationship. They are able to understand my needs, and I, their busy schedules juggling motherhood and work commitments. With this, our clothes are finally in production!

So when you wear our apparel, you'd be happy to know that our designs have been tried and tested by mothers. Adding to that, my attempts at nursing are not exactly the most successful yet. But wherever I can, I will try my best to put down my experiences of breastfeeding, and hope that my lesson learned may be of some help or encouragement to other nursing mothers. I hope that by starting this business, I'm not simply making a few bucks for myself, but also positively contributing to the lives of nursing mothers out there. All the best to mothering!
