Breastfeeding is one of the many things your baby makes you do on a right now instead of later basis – anywhere and anytime. Part of happy breastfeeding is easy access to your breasts, but that only comes with knowing what to wear. Truth is, you’re obviously looking for something convenient and you should have that. You need to dress comfortably giving up all your “snazziness” – your stylishness and attractiveness.
Wear more loose-fitting clothing:
I’m well aware of how uneasy breastfeeding mums can get. When breastfeeding your body needs to breathe and you need the air flow. You can never go wrong with loose-fitting clothing. They are the number one step to easy access to your breasts for your baby who may just be crying non-stop. Loose-fitting does not mean ill-fitting. Every style of clothing can be loose-fitting. This include stops, dresses, trousers, skirts,jackets and even bras.
Avoid clothing with openings far from breasts:
Clothing like that would mean taking the bus to breastfeeding inconvenience. Wearing clothing that have zips/buttons at the back means that when you want to breastfeed, you will need a helping hand with opening up if you can’t. This also means, you’re going semi-nude thus, exposing the most part of your torso.Basically, wear clothing with openings closer to your breasts e.g. front or side zipped/buttoned clothing.
Consider a nursing bra:
Breastfeeding changes your breasts, so they become more sensitive. Regular bras may not provide the support and comfort you need. A nursing bra helps you breastfeed better without taking off your bra – they have clasps. The same way sports bras are better for sports, nursing bras are better for breastfeeding.
Consider a nursing cover:
If you happen to wear clothing with zips/buttons at the back, in order to avoid baring it all, a nursing cover would help with covering you up better.
Dressing to fit the moment is the most comfortable feeling ever. This comfort is not just for you but also for those around you when you’re about to breastfeed, especially in public.
