Nursing isn’t easy, but you can certainly make the experience a lot more bearable with the right breastfeeding clothes.
Dressing for nursing is all about how quickly and discreetly you can feed the little one. These garments should have convenient flaps and openings so you can nurse your baby on a whim, wherever and whenever. Here are three of the most important nursing clothes you need in your closet so you can nurse and pump discreetly—and stylishly.
Nursing tank tops : While you can technically use any button-down or off-shoulder shirt in your closet for breastfeeding, it’s a good idea to invest in proper nursing tank tops that will go a long way in your post-maternity wardrobe.
A nursing top is specifically designed to cover up your tummy and torso while you breastfeed. They have discreet panels built in for easy and quick breastfeeding access.
What’s great about a tank top in particular is that it’s the perfect layering base. It can go under anything, so you can still wear your favorite regular shirts while staying covered when you lift up to nurse.
Style tip: It’s best to choose a nursing tank that has a low neckline. It easier to move it to the side when it’s time to breastfeed.
Nursing dresses : Do you want to look put-together but don’t have a lot of time? Then you need a couple of nursing dresses in your closet. Slip into them and you look effortlessly stylish without even trying.
Style tip: Solid colors are super chic, but you can also go for prints and patterns to mask milk stains.
Nursing bras : The problem with regular of bras is that they have underwires that could end up putting too much pressure on the breasts, which may lead to mastitis or clogged ducts. A nursing bra will give you the support you need without any added constraints. It has strategic clips, hooks, and snaps so that a section can fold down for easy latching without the structure of the bra being affected.
