Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley, Stars of the Hit Style Network Series “Tia & Tamera,” To Launch Need™ — A New Product Line for Pregnant Women, New Moms and Babies
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Celebrated TV stars and new moms Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley announced today the launch of their new product line, Need™ — healthy, innovative products for moms and moms-to-be. The first product in the line is MILKY!™, a 2.5 ounce, lactation-enhancing herbal tea supplement created for moms who choose to breast feed. MILKY!™ will make its debut at Destination Maternity®, Motherhood Maternity® and A Pea in the Pod® stores nationwide this May.
MILKY!™ was originally featured on Style Network’s hit series “Tia & Tamera.” During the episode “Twinventors,” expectant mother Tamera became concerned that she would have difficulty producing enough breast milk for her son, a common but seldom discussed problem, which Tia also experienced. Tamera sought the advice of her maternity wellness expert, who recommended drinking fenugreek herbal tea. Neither sister liked the taste of the tea and desired a more convenient way to consume it. After much experimenting, they came up with their own great tasting recipe and set out to develop a healthy and all-natural product to assist all breastfeeding women including those coping with milk production issues. They partnered with a leading food scientist to refine their own unique formula into a quick and great tasting alternative: MILKY!™.
When consumed twice daily, MILKY!™ increases both the quality and quantity of breast milk a mother produces. Moms can say goodbye to brewing and consuming a cup of harsh-tasting fenugreek tea three times a day and can now enjoy the same benefits with a delicious strawberry flavor and on-the-go convenience of MILKY!™.
Tia and Tamera shared, “We are passionate about helping mothers who, like us, have wanted products that would make pregnancy easier and would help with our newborn babies — but what we needed wasn’t available. We set out to create a new line of products for today’s generation of modern women. Need™provides healthy, innovative and necessity-driven solutions for new and expectant moms and their children.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Tia and Tamera on this exciting launch and to be the exclusive retailer of Milky!,” said Chris Daniel, President of Destination Maternity Corporation. “Tia and Tamera’s transition to motherhood has sparked a new way for them to connect with fans and we think nursing moms everywhere will be enthusiastic about this unique and compelling product.”
In addition to MILKY!™, Need™ plans to launch many other pregnancy to preschool products for expectant and new moms, babies and toddlers, including skin care, personal care, supplements, snacks, apparel and accessories.

When you become a mom, vanity goes out the window. But that doesn’t mean that you completely stop caring about your body and appearance. Being pregnant with my third baby, stretch marks are definitely a concern of mine so I was happy to try Stretchy, the new deep moisturizing treatment from sisters Tia and Tamara.
While I know it doesn’t necessarily say anything about what’s inside, first impressions are everything and I liked the simple, classic design of the bottle itself. The pink and blue make you think of baby but the vibrant shades are modern and fun.
The cream comes out thick which to me is a necessity when it comes to a moisturizer. However, it can also sometimes mean that it’s too thick and harder to absorb into the skin. I was surprised with the ease of which it rubbed right in and disappeared into my skin, without leaving behind any greasy residue or anything at all. It just left my skin feeling smooth.
The smell is delicious and citrusy and has that clean wholesome smell to it that makes you feel fresh. You have to be careful what you apply to your skin when pregnant and this is all natural and additive free so it’s completely safe for mom and baby.
Since I’m only four months pregnant, it remains to be seen how effective Stretchy is at reducing the appearance of stretch marks but in the weeks since I’ve been using it, my skin feels smoother and moisturized so my hopes are high!
