You can breastfeed with ease and nurse in style!

Most new mums start their breastfeeding journey with obligatory midwife recommendations of a nightie, with an open front and a nursing bra. However, they are desperate to find something not only practical but also fashionable.

First of all, it is worth remembering while breastfeeding you will be tugging your top numerous times to gain access. Therefore, it is essential to choose a top that has at least two percent elastane or stretch content in the material composition, so that it retains its shape. Moreover, so it will not lose its shape after washing.

Regular clothes with added benefits for breastfeeding mums

Since breastfeeding in public is no longer shameful, there is a growing demand from mums for fashionable clothes with concealed nursing solutions. Nursing tops should fit well and flatter the post-natal figure so you can breastfeed your baby while feeling comfortable and looking fabulous.

The best of them look just like your regular clothes, but feature secret openings, concealed by easy pull up or drop-down panels with a clever double layer offering plenty of space for access to the breast, allowing mums to feed discreetly if they’re feeling self-conscious.

The ultimate secret nursing access can be concealed with a little help from zips hidden on the sides, drop-cup clip fastening, as well as button-down or clip styles, which are easy to open with one hand.

Nursing in the cold

In order to face colder days or evenings, designers came up with maternity cotton sweatshirts, inventive fleece baby carriers with kangaroo baby pocket and concealed side zips allowing breastfeeding wherever you are. Bear in mind that it doesn’t replace a baby carrier, wrap or sling; make sure baby is secure at all times.
