Most breastfeeding moms are often torn between looking trendy and a convenient way to breastfeed your baby without any inhibitions. These 5 fashion tips for breastfeeding moms will serve as a guide


Wear more loose-fitting clothing

As a breastfeeding mom, you can never go wrong when you wear loose fitting clothing as they support airflow. Breastfeeding moms are often saddled with these complaints as a result of what they wear. You may probably not have noticed this but loose fitting clothes allow for easy access to your breasts just in case baby won’t stop crying. It makes breastfeeding a pleasurable experience for you and your baby. Every style of clothing can be loose fitting whether, dresses, trousers, bras, skirts and even jackets.

Avoid clothing with openings that are too far from the breasts

Clothing with openings that are far from your breasts will bring about a lot of inconvenience for you and your baby. This will in turn leave your baby crying for a longer period of time especially when you don’t feed him on time. Wearing clothes with zips and buttons at the back will only make it difficult for you to reach for your breasts on time. You’ll also require some help with the zips or button from anyone around you. You’ll also be exposing the better part of your torso, which means you’re going semi-nude just because you want to feed your baby. Basically, go for clothes with openings not far from the breasts for easy access and comfort.

Consider a nursing bra

Breastfeeding changes your breasts and makes it very sensitive and as such there’s a need for you to consider a nursing bra. Nursing bras helps you breastfeed better without having to take off your bra. Just the same way sports bra are better for athletes, nursing bras are a great option for breastfeeding moms.

Consider a nursing cover

To avoid going semi-nude when you wearing an outfit with zips and buttons at the back, you can use a nursing cover. A nursing cover would help with covering you up and also your baby. A nursing cover is very important, as no one wants you going naked all because you want to breastfeed your baby.
