I stumbled across a photo of the Boobie Beanie on Facebook and the response to the idea was so huge that I just had to learn more about them.
The Boobie Beanie is the creation of Sara, a young nanny from Minneapolis who is now based in San Francisco. She crochets each and every Boonie Beanie by hand out of 100% organic cotton. The breast part is that each Boobie Beanie is completely customizable, pink nipple? brown nipple? you got it.
Of course, the whole concept makes light of the ridiculous controversy over women breast feeding in public. The Boobie Beanie is made to look like a breast when worn by a baby while nursing. It accentuates the fact that, yes, I’m a mother and I can feed my baby whenever and wherever I want.
The Boobie Beanie is available for only $15.00 at boobiebeanie.com! You can also order the pattern for $5 for those of you with the crocheting skills.
