I feed Max myself and at 6 months there are no signs of him stopping. Breastfeeding has worked for me and I am thankful for that. However your choice of attire changes somewhat when you have to have quick access to the boob 24/7.
It’s not so bad at the beginning, when losing the baby weight and tops are big but as the months roll on and you want to get your style back it can be tricky to find nice pieces to fit into your wardrobe and not make you look to ‘mumsy’.
3 bits of essential kit I’d suggest before hunting for tops that work are:
1. Really good feeding bras-get measured and buy well!
2. Clip down vests-really handy for going under things, I get mine in H&M
3. Breast pads-if needed, those tops won’t be as lovely if you have leaked all over them!
So here is some of what I picked up in recent weeks… It is to give you some ideas.
I did the bulk of my purchases in Zara but find H&M, Pull & Bear and of course Penny’s good too. It means you don’t spend too much but get to freshen up your wardrobe too for this feeing period in your life.
I have also included some other pics of bits I’ve seen in the shops and some current stock for handy tops that are in store now so if you are at the start of your journey or in the middle I hope some of these ideas inspire and happy shopping! * all tops below were under 20 euro.
Some current stock-in Zara!
