I am currently nursing my third child and wanted to share what nursing undergarments I've been using. It's taken three children to finally get it right, so I thought I'd share my discoveries in case you are first time moms. I've found that you need three types of bras while nursing: a nursing bra, night time bra, and pumping bra, plus a cover while you are nursing outside.
I am loving my Thyme Maternity Bras from everyday wear. They are extremely comfortable and I've found give the best support throughout the day which is extremely important. Moms to be need a bra that is specifically developed to accommodate the physical changes that occur during pregnancy and nursing. Thyme bras offer the best coverage, support, fit, adjustability and comfort. Not to mention the styles of the bra's are chic with touches of lace.
For night time I needed something comfortable with a little support. I turned to Coobie Seamless Bra which is not made specifically for nursing but its comfortable, stylish, and supportive. For new moms who may be dealing with the sensitivity issues that may arise with breast feeding, Coobie is the ideal bra to wear during this period and even afterwards. The versatile cami/bra is made with a soft quality fabric of a nylon/lycra blend and fine construction for dependable stretch and retention giving a snug and non-restrictive fit.
While pumping, I try to multitask by answering emails or making phone calls, so Simple Wishes hands free breast pump bra is just what I use. This innovative bra gives us moms the valuable gift of time by freeing up their hands for other tasks or allowing them to simply relax while using their breast pump. The bra design is adjustable in size, using high quality velcro, to sustain a perfect fit over time as a nursing mothers size changes.
Lastly, for nursing in public I've found a better solution that using a swaddle type blanket. Although I love my swaddle blankets, sometimes its just too much fabric so I found the Undercover Mama tank. It's a strapless tank top that clips directly to your favorite nursing bra. The Undercover Mama allows moms to wear their best supporting nursing bras and any shirt they prefer, while providing modest cover of the rest of her torso while breastfeeding.
There you have it, my nursing essentials!
