Comfort is queen when it comes to new mamahood. It certainly helps to have clothing that can be slipped off before your baby starts to fuss for those nursing moms out there. Nursing clothes don't need to feel frumpy or like hiding beneath a sack as long as you have easy breezy comfortable clothes that offer easy access.
So how do you bridge that gap between function and fashion when it comes to breastfeeding-friendly clothes?
Tips For Easy Breastfeeding Outfits
Getting into the groove of feeding your child may take some time and it may also feel physically and emotionally tricky too. The last thing you want is to throw complicated clothing into the mix as you tear your hair out trying to wriggle out of a cute jumpsuit while your babe has a full-blown meltdown.
Also, you don't have to stick solely to postpartum maternity clothes or special breastfeeding clothes either. You can still rock your own unique style with a few tailored tips and choices for how to find regular clothes that won't get in the way of your nursing sessions. Here are a few tips on selecting nursing-friendly outfits that make you feel fab.
Something that you can easily pull down or button-down is bound to be a lifesaver so bear this in mind when selecting your nursing shirts and tops. Also, the fewer layers the better as you don't want to put too many roadblocks between boob and baby.
We adore rompers and cute jumpsuits over here, but these aren't going to be your best option for easy access unless you pick jumpsuits that have plenty of room and either button down, wrap, or v neck action. You may be better served by long floaty wrap dresses and wrap tops instead.
Access isn't everything, you may also want to consider what to do about unexpected leaks. Whether you slip breast pads in your nursing bra or wear darker colors or busy patterns to disguise any stains, these tiny tips can be a godsend. Another new mom hack could also be to pack or wear a scarf or shawl that can easily be used to hide leaks or as a nursing cover if you feel like you want one when out and about.
Loose and breezy blouses and tops are going to up your comfort level. Milk heavy boobs may feel heavy and uncomfortable when wearing tops that add a little too much pressure to that area. You may want to avoid tight bras, shirts, and anything that puts excess pressure on your breasts.
What to Wear When Breastfeeding
Nursing friendly clothes are best when they are soft and comfy and have plenty of room and easy to unbutton or quickly open. At Sozy we are all about clothes being as cozy and cute as can be without losing an inch of style. For those who want to skip the jeans and nursing cami top combo, we have some alternative suggestions to keep you looking and feeling amazing all through those pumping days or when pumping on the go.
The Bruna Top and Justine Pants
A lightweight and gauzy look that instantly uplifts the spirits and looks sublime when paired with sandals and a wide-brimmed hat, this is the look that says summer comfort. The Bruna wrap top can be pushed aside with ease and the back tie feature makes it super adjustable to suit whatever your breasts are deciding to do that day. Combined with the free flow style of the Justine pants with their chic eco vibes and smocked waist and you have a winner.
