Hassle-Free Fashion for Nursing Moms

Pictured above, I’m wearing the Lift Up Nursing Tee in Cobalt by Motherhood Maternity

Before I gave birth, I remember laying on the couch 9 months pregnant, browsing nursing-wear on the internet. I spent a majority of that time thinking who really needs a shirt especially designed for nursing? It’s a waste of money, and I’ll get along just fine without a special nursing wardrobe. I laughed at the idea, really. It seemed absurd to me that a woman would spend $30 or $40 on a nursing shirt, when a regular shirt would be perfectly fine.

Fast-forward to several weeks later:

I have company over from out of state, and I am barely getting by on 2 hours of sleep if I’m lucky. I am stressed enough that my home is a mess, and now I’m panicking over a baby who is having trouble latching and my inability to nurse her discreetly. While I am certainly FOR mothers breastfeeding in public, I am not the type to personally want to flaunt it. I am sitting here red-faced, wishing there could be an easier way.

That’s where nursing-wear comes in.

Nursing-wear is more stylish than ever, with new and sleek designs. And once you get more comfortable breastfeeding, wearing nursing-friendly clothing in public will make your experience much less of a hassle if you are like me, striving to be as discreet as possible (although I’m sure I have still unintentionally flashed a boob more than once. And really it’s no big deal haha).

Take a look at these:

Lift Up Nursing Tee

This is the shirt that changed it all for me. My step-mother gave me this shirt as a gift in the cobalt color, and I became an immediate convert.

Maternity Jersey Wrap-Front Nursing Top

The cross-front neckline makes nursing so much easier without the need to lift up your entire shirt, and ruching in the middle gives the illusion of a smaller waist while deterring the eye from a post-baby belly.


Web Only Pull Down Raglan Sleeve Nursing Tea

Cute and comfy is the way to go, and breastfeeding doesn’t get much easier when you’re wearing a stretchy shirt you can pull down at the neck.
