Simple Wishes Sling Bra™
The Simple Wishes Sling Bra is a revolutionary new all-in-one maternity, nursing and hands-free pumping bra. It is the next level in a functional, comfortable bra for new moms and was created for the modern multi-tasking mom who needs a bra that can keep up with her needs.
With four functions in one, the versatile Simple Wishes Sling Bra easily supports the transition between maternity (when a mother’s body is constantly changing), to breastfeeding, to hands-free pumping and beyond.
Using proprietary Simple Sling design, the Sling Bra easily supports the shift between breastfeeding and hands-free pumping without having to change in and out of different bras for each function. For hands-free pumping, the patent pending, minimal Simple Sling™, consisting of the Cup Sling Bra Straps and Comfort Sling, is revolutionary. This elegant design eliminates the bulky, unattractive layers of fabric and indiscreet, skin-irritating openings found in all other combination nursing and pumping bras.
The Sling Bra has unapparelled support and been tested to support almost double the weight of full pump bottles – more than16 ounces – even with the pump set at the lowest suction level.
This is more than a nursing bra. The “Undercover Bra Straps” extend the wearable life of the bra by hiding the nursing clasps for use beyond breastfeeding. This feature alone provides incredible value for moms who need a bra that can do it all. The Sling Bra is offered in a variety of colors and a wide range of sizes to fit many mamas. Choose a band size between 32 – 40 and then choose a cup size between C and H.
In addition, the Sling Bra features easy nursing clasps for one-hand quick release; padded cups for support and discretion; and soft plush convertible bra straps for more comfort and support.

A Shark Tooth Fairy Tale
Written by Erica Morgan; Illustrated by Chiara Civati
What happens when Mrs. Chompers, the shark tooth fairy, needs a sick day? Follow Mrs. Pearly White, the human tooth fairy, as she fills in for Mrs. Chompers. Will Mrs. Pearly White be able to exchange all of the shark teeth for gifts before the sun comes up?
In addition to 24 pages of full-color illustrations, this rhyming underwater adventure also features a “find the hidden shark tooth” game. To educate young readers about the importance of ocean conservation, the back of the book includes a “Ten Ways That You Can Protect Our Waterways” factsheet.
Erica Morgan is a nineteen-year-old author and artist from Severna Park, Maryland. This tale was inspired by Erica’s childhood trips with family and friends to search for shark teeth near Calvert Cliffs, Maryland. When collecting dozens of teeth on the shore, she wondered, “How can one tooth fairy exchange so many shark teeth for gifts in a single night?” At the age of eleven, she wrote this book in answer to that question. The tale was tucked away in a drawer for many years, until she sketched a storyboard and decided to bring it to life! She encourages young authors to share their stories with the world.
