Happy Friday everyone!!! I hope you all had a great week and are as excited as I am for the weekend!! Leo is 6 weeks old today (can you believe it?!?!) and I am finally starting to get the hang of this whole Mom thing … I think (not to mention yesterday’s craziness but hey no one is perfect right!?!?!)! I now realize you can only take it day by day, never knowing what the next day may bring … but for now, I’m feeling like I am in full swing of things. A big part of being a new mom for me has been NURSING. I never really realized how time-consuming it was and how much MILK you actually produce!!!! I originally pictured myself pumping with the hands-free pumps while continuing to blog and work … and that is SOOOO not the case (for right now)!!! If I’m not looking at Leo or thinking about Leo … my milk supply pretty much stops. And when I hear him crying and the 3 hours is up (he’s typically feeding every 3 hours) my boobs start leaking LOL (apparently these soft shells help with that???)!!!!
ANYWAYS … back to what this blog is about and what so many of you have requested, NURSING CLOTHES!!!! I learned really quickly which clothes worked and which didn’t when you need to whip that boob out pronto!! A quick side note, for those of you that warned me of this … I should have taken your advice because I did NOT come prepared. BUT to tide me over in the meantime of not having ANY nursing clothes when I came home from the hospital … I found ANYTHING already in closet with zippers, button fronts, and snaps worked perfectly. They don’t need to specifically be “nursing clothes” to work … they just need to have easy access to the boob to work!!! I’ve been searching for nursing specific options to make my life easier … they need to be functional, yet still stylish, so that you can’t tell the difference if they’re nursing clothes or not. Some of these items below I have and am loving and others are on my wishlist!!
1. Maternity Wrap Dress | 2. Cross-front Top | 3. Scarf | 4. Cross-front Sweater | 5. Nursing Bras | 6. Plaid Button Down Shirt | 7. Cross-layered Nursing Top | 8. Body Con Nursing Dress | 9. Nursing Tank Tops
I’m always looking for cute nursing clothes, so feel free to tell me your favourites in the comments below!!
