Wear more loose-fitting clothing

Every style of clothing can be loose fitting whether, dresses, trousers, bras, skirts and even jackets.
Avoid clothing with openings far from breasts
Clothing with openings that are far from your breasts will only cause you inconvenience. In addition, your baby will end up crying for a longer period of time when you don’t feed him or her on time. As such, wearing clothes with zips and buttons at the back will only make it difficult for you when you have to feed your baby. In addition, you will also need help with your zips or button from anyone around you. That’s not only the problems associated with wearing clothes with zips and buttons at the back. You’ll also be exposing the most part of your torso which means you’re going semi-nude just because you want to feed your baby. Basically, wear clothes with openings, which are not too 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 taking off your bra. Just the same way sports bra are better for athletes, nursing bras are better for breastfeeding moms.
Consider a nursing cover
