Everything changes when you become a mother.
I find most Moms focus on the baby products you need.
But less rarely, Moms talk about how much your wardrobe will go through a massive change too.
Even after the baby is born.
So if you think that you will be able to put on all that beautifully fitted dresses which are resting in your closet, right after the pregnancy, well, you got it wrong.
If you are a new nursing mother, you probably have realized this already, but if you are on the way to bring a baby in the world this is going to help you a lot. A nursing mother needs clothes that can help her nurse her child comfortably and with perfect ease.
The Breastfeeding Wardrobe Transition
Here are the things that will help you understand the whole idea of wardrobe transition. Don’t worry these suggestion comes to you from a mother and my sister with a total of three kids, so, yes, each item of breastfeeding clothing suggested is tried and tested, numerous times.
Now here is what I am going to tell you, you don’t need to wear a bra unless you actually want to. The first few days of nursing are better spent without it because you will be getting hooked to the whole idea of breastfeeding a lil baby. And not having a bra on will make things much easier for you. But, don’t get too used to not wearing it because you will need it when you go out or if you are a working woman. So here is the deal, choose a bra that not only fits, but also a comfortable one. You might want to buy two bras because the size usually changes after the first few days and yes, it goes bigger.
