Where can I get one from?

must it be a dress though?
much easier to wear a nice skirt, camisole and wrap cardi - hitch cami up to feed while cardi keeps tummy covered.

someone linked to a lovely one a few weeks back, have you done a search on this board?
other than that, I second what mrsbadger says, its the best way

Flier: did a search but couldn't find the thread. But then I am a little incompetent.

Mrs Badger:thank you. Have ordered one to try. Loads are out of stock unfortunately.
Skirt and cardi option sounds sensible. Will attempt trip to shops (entertaining with 3 x DSs!)

I went to a wedding where I was breastfeeding dd3 and I've uploaded a picture of what I wore for you to see - it was the skirt/cami/cardi option. Must say I do prefer to wear dresses but just couldn't find anything suitable. The personal shopper at debenhams was responsible for this outfit!

and you have adorable children.

I went to a wedding recently in a wrap dress with a black spagetti strap BF vest under it and that combo worked pretty well (esp as ds needed feeding through the vows...).

Heres the website I remembered from a post a few weeks ago, I thought it looked really good.

this reminds me of buying a gorgeous new dress for a christening, arriving, and then realising about 2 minutes later why it is a really really bad idea to take a bf hungry baby out whilst wearing a dress with no buttons or any way of accessing boob other than pulling whole dress over head. spent a lot of time sitting in the loos shock

thanks flier.
great idea liath
been there too morocco ~ ds2 was bf-ing every 3 hrs like clockwork and i worked out could wear a dress to my cousins wedding and slip off quietly for 10 mins with a pashmina.
sadly it was the hottest day that summer and ds2 fed constantly. never mind, my drunk aunts sat with me for company.
