Since I gave birth to Nathan, I have been nursing him. As a first time mom, and one of the first to go full-fledged into breastfeeding in my immediate family, I had no idea what to look for and purchase when it came to nursing-friendly clothing. Sure, I could go to a maternity store and buy their $60+ tops, but really who can afford that? Even if I was still working full time, that is simply too much for a shirt.
The first items I bought were nursing pads and bras. With minimal research, I bought some comfortable, reusable cotton nursing pads:
Luckily, about a month later, there was a sale at Target for some nursing tank tops! $10 apiece! They even had pretty good online reviews. So I bought 5. The fit was good, they were easy to open and close with one hand, and they covered up my tummy while I nursed! How can I ask for more?
Well, now that the hot Summer weather is leaving us, I am now asking for more warmth while still being nursing friendly. The little guy is likely to start nursing a little less in the near future, but certainly won't be stopping for a while I'm sure. Any tips you guys could offer me? For now I'll just put on a sweater over the top of my nursing tanks and call it good!
