Dressing for Breastfeeding
When you’ve just had a baby you may have low esteem, be carrying extra weight, feel self-conscious and therefore the last thing you really want to do is expose your body to feed your baby!
However, it doesn’t have to be difficult, here are a few ideas to help you and baby feel comfortable while feeding WITHOUT having to buy expensive breastfeeding clothing.
One of the easiest ways to feed discreetly is by wearing a stretchy vest underneath your top. By doing this you can pull the vest down just enough to expose your nipple and lift your top up to pop baby underneath. Your body will be covered by the vest which means you can feed very discreetly.
Scarves are a very worthwhile accessory when breastfeeding, not only do they look nice, they keep you from feeling exposed, and also help baby get less distracted while feeding if you they are lightweight enough to drape over baby’s head.
Finally, and most importantly, make sure you invest in nursing bras which unclip and get measured by a professional bra fitter when buying.
