Hey fellow mamas (or mamas to be!). Apologies that this has taken a while to pull together (you know, life happens + a 5 month old baba!) – but here it is: a round up of all my favourite nursing friendly pieces (all affordable from the high street, of course), along with some style recommendations and tips. I’m not proclaiming to be a master expert by any means – as most of the time, I just tend to get on with it, and basically wear what I like. When that said, when I know I’m out and about for a full day, or I’m going to a restaurant/cafe to meet friends in public – I make sure I adjust accordingly to make the whole process easier – and have therefore rounded up the typical style of clothing, and pieces that I can’t live without when it comes to nursing out and about.

Personally, I always fully cover up when I breastfeed out in public. That’s not to say I’m judging anyone who does it freely (respect to you!), but I personally tend to feel so much more self-conscious, unless I cover up with a shawl or a nursing apron. So I never leave the house without Aden + Anais muslins cloths and this nursing cover – they’re like my safety net. A nursing cover does exactly that – cover everything up, but it doesn’t make it any easier if you’re wearing a long dress that you have to hoist right up! 

When it comes to clothing, and as I’m planning on breastfeeding for at least one year (if he’ll take that long) – it’s obviously been key to find the right styles for breastfeeding. And here are some of my faves…

#1 TOPS/KNITS/SHIRTS

The key here is loose fit styles which are easy to hoist up. Shirts are also a great option, oversized blouses and off-the-shoulder styles.


#2 JEANS/TROUSERS/SKIRTS

Comfortable, soft jeans are the best. Loose fitted pants, tailored or wide. High waisted skirts, short or long.


#3 WRAP DRESSES

The simplest style of dress to wear when you’re breastfeeding, and fortunately there are SO many gorgeous styles out there right now…


#4 BRAS 

Soft, comfortable and as flattering, as nursing bras, goes…
