what are stylist BFing mums wearing this winter? Don't want to look a frump..
I'll be having a baby next week, so will be breastfeeding it over winter. I was wondering what you would all suggest I get to be able to feed discretely - last years ponchos would have been ideal, but i never bought one.. Any ideas, other than a scarf?
Agree with the indoor feeding, and already have a super cape thing should I feel like feeding in the great outdoors. My problem is I am craving a knitted dress this winter. I am bf a (currently) 3 month old who throws up all over me with monotonous regularity. It's hopeless isn't it?
hmmmm, i reckon with one of those BF vest things you could get away with that just push it down and unclip the vest bit. I think they have holes in an underneath layer rather than the whole nork out iyswim.
I have done the shirt dress with a camisole underneath. I have been wondering about some of the plunge v necks with a camisole too. Just worry about it going out of shape.
I'm plannign to wear all my pre-pregnancy wrap dresses again this autumn/winter with a stretchy vest top underneath. You can BF from ypour left boob by lifting the vest top up underneath. To feed from your right boob, the wrap needs to be knotted a bit more loosely but tightly enough to stay wrapped around, IYSWIM.
Or a stretchy low v necked dress with a vest top underneath?
Or a short dress worn tunic style over trousers so you just lift it up like a top?
If you don't mind paying a bit more theres a great american co. that does REALLY discrete bf tops. Motherwear. They're not particularly pricey but I then had to pay VAT on them as an import. Maybe you could get round this by ordering them to someone you know in USA and get them to post them on.
I got three tops and wore them alternating for over a year with one bf shirt from Boots!!
They have double fronts so the under one has slits and an identical layer on top covers you. You stick your boob (pardon the expression) through the slit and tummy is well covered. Perfect for those first post-baby days!!!!
They don't even look like nursing clothes...maybe they should be paying me for this advert!!!!
