I'm attending a wedding with my DH and newborn ds this weekend (he will be 2 weeks) and desperately need help finding an outfit.
I'm happy with dress/playsiit/skirt and top combo but it needs to be breastfeeding friendly and cover the top of breast while feeding. I have a large bust and would feel very exposed in just a wrap style or v neck that you pull down - especially as he has been cluster feeding in the evening so I may be feeding for long periods of time.
I am currently around a size 14, my bump has pretty much gone down now just a bit wobbly all over!
I would look at a high waisted full midi skirt and a boxy vest top.
Skirt will hide a lot of tummy and you can pull the vest up to feed; wide straps will accommodate bra straps. You could wear a little cami underneath as well if you wanted for even more coverage without being too hot.
Definitely the skirt / double top combo - so one top gets pulled up whilst the underneath vest gets pulled down - cheap ones are good so they are easy to stretch down. That leaves a small window for boob to poke out but leaves everything else covered.
Probably quite a jazzy skirt with black top half or are you prone to leaks??
Try www.figure8maternity.com/ - I got a lovely dress which is nursing friendly, covering the top of the boob too, for a wedding a couple of weeks ago. I ordered four or five so I could try them all on and choose my favourite, returns were easy for the ones I didn't choose. What I find most difficult about finding nursing friendly clothes is that it's very hard to physically go shopping for them and see what they are like so ordering loads and returning worked well for me.
Good luck and enjoy the wedding - and congratulations on your new DS
