You don't need to buy a new wardrobe for breastfeeding, but certain clothes are more comfortable and will keep you fairly covered while feeding your baby. You might be feeling nervous about feeding in public, but wearing clothes that you feel comfortable feeding in will make a big difference when it comes to feeding out of the house. Remember, all mums get nervous about feeding in public for the first time, but every time you do it, you will get more and more used to it and you will soon become a pro!
Top tips on what to wear:
Tip #1: Wear layers of t-shirts and jumpers
Tip #2: Wearing high rise jeans or skirts
Tip #3: Try wearing looser tops
Tip #4: Scarves can be used in lots of different ways
Tip #5: Wrap dresses
Tip #6: Getting the right bra
Most importantly, get a good fitting bra or two. Nursing bras are recommended because they stretch more, allowing for the changing size of your breasts. Some supermarkets now sell nursing bras but if you can't find one for a decent price, just make sure to wear a bra that's on the big side.
