Yes, we all know that breastfeeding is natural and all that I really need is a couple milk producing breasts, but in saying that, I believe that there are many products out there that sometimes just make life easier or more comfortable or less awkward. One of those for me is nursing wear.
I purchased a couple quality nursing bra's last time and will do the same again to make sure I have proper fitted ones. I personally love comfortable cotton ones and one's especially for sleeping in. I've been eyeing a couple of really comfy looking ones from Nummies.
I got away with maybe two nursing tops throughout the whole time I nursed E (16 months). The rest of the time I wore t-shirts with tank tops underneath or v-neck shirts. But you know what? Sometimes it was just awkward when trying to nurse in public and not wearing the best shirt to easily lift and load. Playgroups were never a problem, it was when I was out and about and not want to expose my belly or the rest of my body when trying to lift my shirt. So, this time I am committing to buying some practical and fashionable nursing wear. Afterall, I'll buy a dress for one wedding, why wouldn't I buy a nursing top that I can use often for 2+ years? I wish I would have thought of that last time around.
Here are some nursing wear pieces I've been eyeing these days:
I love the functionality of the Momzelle brand shirts. Such a great brand and it's a bonus that the women who designed and started this buisness is a Canadian Mom. Check out her video from when she was on Dragon's Den.
