As many nursing mama’s will attest, it’s really difficult to figure out what to wear while nursing. You can’t wear certain things because you don’t have … ahem… easy access. The last thing you want is to keep a crying baby waiting while you try to undress yourself, or to end up half-undressed and hiding in the bathroom to nurse. Either scenario isn’t cute, and I’m finding that a lot of the clothes available to nursing mothers isn’t cute either. So what is a mama to do?
Here are three ideas to help a new mama stay cute while breastfeeding:
V-Neck is probably one of the easiest breastfeeding styles you can go with. If you’re not afraid of being a little busty, that is. Chances are, you’re going to have some great cleavage going on, and v-neck might be a little more than you bargained for. If you’re uncomfortable with that, a stretchy tank top under it will work well, too!
2. One Up, One Down
This is my favourite way to dress right now, and it’s perfect for anyone who is a little more modest. I wear a stretchy tank top, which is pulled down, and a flowy top, which is pulled up. Then you’re showing the minimum amount of skin that is necessary for breastfeeding, and layering is super cute! I love leggings, too, which is perfect for my postpartum body.
Strapless is one the easiest breastfeeding styles out there. I have a number of cute strapless dresses that are now open for me to wear, that I couldn’t wear while pregnant, and I’m so glad that they work for breastfeeding! And if you feel like you’re showing more skin than you’d like, throw on a little cardigan! Super cute and helps with breastfeeding.
