I am a working mummy and i travel quite a bit too because of work. However, in the meantime, i would still like to provide the best for my baby. I need clothes where i can breastfeed discreetly and be on the go at the same time. I want to give my baby boy the best.
Would anyone be able to recommend a suitable brand of clothing for this? I am really in a dilemma.
Motherhood makes some nursing tops, but honestly, I found it easiest to layer my clothes with stretchy tanks under neath, or nursing tanks... this way i pull my shirt up, but the tank covers my mid-drift. Then - i can either pull down the top of the tank (i've cut out the boobs on some of my tanks that werent stretchy or cut their neckline down to make that open), or if its a nursing tank, then it has latches that allow you to fold it down & nurse. This way youre not pulling your shirt down to reveal cleavage, and youre not revealing your stomach when you pull your shirt up. Most of the tiem when i would nurse, nobody would know i was nursing!
This is what I did - Since the layered look is in anyway - I picked up some really inexpensive camisoles - they were at gap on clearance for like 3 dollars each or you can use tank tops also - like the ones at old navy that are kinda longer than normal and you can get them for like 2 for 10 or something - then I cut slits in the material over where my breasts are - I wore a nursing bra under, of course, and then a normal cute top over as a top layer - then when I needed to nurse - I would pull up the top layer shirt and i had immediate access without having my belly showing or exposing much except the nipple at all actually - it worked perfectly and then every single shirt I had was automatically turned into a nursing shirt!
I do the layered thing as well. Frankly it is much cheaper than purchasing nursing shirts. I bought a few and they were always 20 bucks or more (mostly more). And while I am breastfeeding for a long while I couldnt justify spending the money on them when I could buy 2-3 tank tops at a fraction of the cost and turn all of my shirts into nurisng shirts.
