Build Your Breastfeeding Wardrobe

3 strategies to help you be your fashionable best when nursing on the go.

Now that baby is earth side, you’re probably eager to get back to your pre-pregnancy wardrobe. But if you are breastfeeding, you’ll probably have to wait just a little bit longer — especially if you plan on nursing on the go. Whether you want to be discreet or don’t mind putting your breast out there when baby needs to eat in public, wearing the right clothes can be a tremendous help in embracing this beautiful, natural aspect of motherhood comfortably and without sacrificing your style. So now is the time to get strategic about what you wear when strolling with baby. Here are 3 tips to make on getting a breastfeeding-friendly wardrobe to help your baby-nourishing breasts navigate between the comfort of your own home and the outside world as seamlessly as possible.

1. WEAR NURSING BRANDS.

Beautiful clothing brands, like Loyal Hana, Mitera and Kinwolfe, have developed their lines specifically with the breastfeeding woman in mind. With strategically placed zippers and layered fabrics, these brands are getting you ready to nurse wherever you go and be stylish, comfortable, and functional all at the same time. A few other brands that we love include Teat & Cosset, Fillyboo Maternity, Boob Design, and SeraphineGeBe for Asos launched this month!

2. USE A NURSING COVER.

If you just want to wear whatever you like, you can opt for a nursing cover, like this one from Bebe Au Lait or Bamboobie. Throw it atop your favorite shirt, and you are good to go. This is particularly great for nursing moms who’d rather not show skin when breastfeeding in public.

3. CHOOSE YOUR TOPS STRATEGICALLY.

Items like this button down from Zara or wrap dress from Auguste allow for easy boob access. If you want more coverage to keep things more discreet (totally fine if you don’t), keep an oversized scarf or shawl like this one from Madewell in your diaper bag throughout the nursing journey.
