I have calf high flat boots in brown and would really love a couple of dress's to wear with these boots and tights but im having real problems finding anything suitable that I can breastfeed in

I've bought this for that very purpose. If you buy the blue, would look good with brown boots

Monsoon had some just like that last year too.

I've also just been looking on Uniqlo - there are some checked shirt dresses on there - they're ever so slightly Chung but would be great with tights and boots and for bfing ... only limited sizes left though, so be quick ... I'm sure there's a 25% off discount code lurking around somewhere too....

Thanks for posts ladies, I love the boden one and have been looking at it for a couple of days I have a feeling it might be out of my budget although it is my birthday next week so may be able to persuade DH

I'm sure you could, though you might feel a bit exposed?I know I did.
I have taken to wearing leggings under dresses so that I can pull them up and feed bub.He is a year old, so the feeding isn't very often,and his body obsures most of the view IYKWIM.Most of my dresses aren't very long,so it's easy to do with the leggings.
Those boden dresses are gorgeous.

angifi i was a little worried about being exposed but plan to always have pashmina with me so guess I could just throw that over my shoulder and over babies head and also thought i may be able to wear a vest under the dress and pull that up while pulling dress down, not sure how practical this will be though hmm

I bought the fixed wrap dress at the same time as the Henley but after a few try-ons and experiments have decided it's a bit awkward for breast feeding, even with a wrap. Shame, because the choice of colours is a bit better. The Damson is lovely.
Have you checked out Primark? Always good for staples... And then you can have the Henley as your take-you-anywhere option.

LTEC thanks for the advice on the wrap dress, I have been to primark this morning and managed to get a couple of longish shirt smock type tops pretty cheap so think i'll be ordering the Henley Tunic in damson just want to wait until bubs is born to get a realistic idea of what size i'll want. I really like the wrap dress in grass though so tempted by it and my lovely mum has just given me some birthday money so may have to give it a go, I guess if I also find it awkward after trying on it can go back.
