HadleyStilwell, designer of unique tailored and professional clothing for breastfeeding mothers, is pleased to announce that American MoJo is now manufacturing the Fleece Lounging and Co-Sleeping Top.

The Polartec stretch fleece lounging top doubles as a co-sleeping shirt for easy breastfeeding while keeping mom's top half warm during the cool months. Originally designed for co-sleeping and lounging at home, the fleece top is also a perfect layer to discreetly nurse outdoors, making it a versatile gift this holiday season.

American MoJo is a social venture that addresses the issues facing poverty-stricken single mothers by creating sustainable employment opportunities in the apparel manufacturing sector.

By partnering with MoJo on fleece top production, HadleyStilwell is contributing towards providing these mothers with liveable salaries, a chance at a career path, and freedom from the prohibitive daycare and health care costs that keep so many mothers from re-entering the work force and being able to support themselves and the families that need them. A Fleece Lounging and Co-Sleeping Top is a gift that truly gives back to other families.

"HadleyStilwell strives to empower mothers, knowing that feeling good about yourself directly impacts being able to give to your family. Here's a chance to enhance that good feeling by purchasing elegant, well-made clothing for your own breastfeeding needs that helps lift a fellow mother," says HadleyStilwell founder Holli Harris.

"Imagine facing all the usual stresses of motherhood while also worrying about keeping a roof over your head, providing stability for your children, and having the right role models around. MoJo is doing amazing work providing a pathway out of poverty for these moms and their children and I'm so proud to be working with them."

Harris's tenure on the board of the microfinance organization Washington CASH in Seattle makes her unusually understanding about what it takes to help people raise themselves up out of poverty through entrepreneurship and a supportive community.

"Holli came to us because she is dedicated to helping women and promoting the entrepreneurial spirit in women," says Cara Aley, President and COO of American MoJo. "HadleyStilwell customers can relate to what our employees face in their lives and feel a sense of pride that they're helping to employ a fellow mom and provide them with essential services."

The Fleece Lounging and Co-Sleeping Top is made from a durable, machine-washable (of course!) stretch Polartec gridded fleece with an inside layer of wicking jersey that is smooth against mom's skin while baby rests against the soft fleece.

The wonderful lines draw significant interest from non-breastfeeding moms, and from women who aren't even moms, who love that the design flatters every shape and size. For Fall 2011, the top will be available in Sage, Charcoal, and Royal Blue gridded designs.
