I breastfed all three of my kids. The first two times I didn’t get to truly enjoy the experience because I didn’t know how to fully embrace the breastfeeding journey. I lived in old T-shirts and black leggings which didn’t help when it comes to loving my post-baby body.
This time I finally cracked the secret code to dressing while breastfeeding. In fact, I realized I don’t have to dress that differently and can maintain my personal style as long as I keep in mind a few things.
Here are five styles that are perfect for breastfeeding mothers.
1. Wrap dresses & maxis
Wrap dresses can be found in so many different styles, colors and prints and are perfect for breastfeeding. It provides easy access for feedings and looks cute. Many nursing dresses come in this style but even non-nursing wrap dresses work just fine and are often priced less.
2. Off-the shoulder tops & dresses
Off the shoulder dresses and tops are right on trend and perfect for nursing mamas. Off the shoulder styles provide easy access for feedings (you can simply pull the top or dress down) and all you need is a quiet place and cover for nursing.
3. Dusters & long cardigans
I love dusters and long cardigans because it provides extra fabric for extra protection. I’ve even used it as a nursing cover/blanket when I forgot to pack mine. Dusters and long cardigans are cute, versatile and such an easy layering piece for any busy mother.
4. Nursing tops from ASOS
I love these maternity + nursing tops from ASOS because they’re affordable, comfortable and versatile. You can wear them while you’re pregnant and even after when baby is born. It comes in different colors and sleeve lengths.
5. Cross front nursing tank tops
These cross front nursing tank tops are the best! In fact, I don’t wear nursing tops and tanks with snaps and hooks anymore because these cross front tops are so much easier to wear. You should have a few of these on hand and layer them under your clothes. I wear these all the time under my clothes during the day and as pajamas at night time. You can find affordable 3-packs on Amazon here.
These are my current favorite looks for nursing. As you can see, I wear a lot of wrap dresses, loose tees and dusters to stay fashionable without sacrificing comfort. You can find more on my Instagram.
