When Etsy sellers Tyler and Sheri Wiseman invented the “Sexy Ugly Christmas Sweater” they were focused on the kitschy holiday trend popular with millennials. They had no idea their product would become the it Christmas sweater for nursing mothers.

The season of holiday parties and festivities means the inevitable dilemma of what to wear. Even more so if you are breastfeeding. The novelty sweater exposes the right breast, which is covered with the Rudolph nose pasties. The look was praised around the internet in parenting circles as a hilarious and functional fashion choice for breastfeeding moms, and now, it’s become a bit of an urban legend.

While creator Sheri Wiseman, who designed the sweater just after she stopped breastfeeding herself, is completely supportive of the fun, she warned of a few “buyer beware” caveats.” Specifically,

. The reindeer nose only sticks on one time without replacing the tape
. The eyes could be a choking hazard

She recommended an alternative design as a better option (see photo below).
