What NOT to wear when you know you’ll nurse baby in public.
Breastfeeding requires you to make a few adjustments in your life, and that includes changing your personal style for easy, discreet boob access. Yes, getting dressed when you know you’ll need to nurse baby is complicated. Baby can get hungry (or should we say hangry) at any point during your daily escapades, and the functionality of your clothes really matters. So knowing what to wear is important; and knowing what not to wear, even more so. Here are 5 pieces of clothes that you should keep in your closet when you know you’ll need to breastfeed.
1. DON’T wear dresses that pull over your head. If you don’t dress in a wrap, button down shirt, or a style that’s specifically designed for nursing like this one from Teat & Cosset, there is simply no way to get to your breast without taking off your entire dress.
2. DON’T wear a jumpsuit unless specifically designed for breastfeeding, like this one from Loyal Hana. Overalls work well with a nursing top layered underneath. We love this one from eco maternity brand Boob Design.
