It's that time of the year again when holiday-themed photo shoots are in order. Sure, the change of times have brought about stylized concepts with props and coordinated fashion ensembles for both young and old.
Still, some families stick to the good 'ol tradition of wearing Christmas sweaters, capturing the smiles from young kids and the smirk or snarl of their tweens and teenagers because they despise the sweater’s design and wouldn’t want to be caught on camera wearing them.
In time, though, the whole family will just have a good laugh at those ugly Christmas sweaters.
These have truly raised the bar high in terms of ugly sweaters. All three variants feature a chest hole that exposes the breast (yes, that breast is not plastic!), complete with eye, nose, and a nipple pasty (with an option to purchase additional pasty as it's a one-time-use only).
To add humor to an already laugh-inducing sweater, Beautiful Breastfeeding, a Facebook use that shares the beauty and normalcy of breastfeeding through member-submitted photographs, stumbled upon YourSassyGrandma's Sexy Ugly Christmas Sweater and shared it on their page. "Bahaha, ugly sweater BF style..." the caption read.
When Smartparenting.com.ph did a survey on breastfeeding in public and using cover-ups, of the 728 moms surveyed, almost 80 percent (581 moms) strongly believe that moms who breastfeed their baby in public don’t need to use a nursing cover. So, it's not surprising as the ugly sweater looks very convenient for breastfeeding moms.
Beautiful Breastfeeding's post has been shared more than 6,500 times and more than has garnered 5,000 likes. However, the ugly sweater is not intended for nursing moms. Since the hype, YourSassyGrandma has edited its' product description. "This sweater is not intended for breastfeeding since the eyes are a choking hazard for baby!" it said.
Well, we--even nursing moms--all had a good laugh.
