Hi all! This week we are wrapping up our Mom-Centric mini-series, where first we discussed what products mom may need during labor and in the hospital bag
, then immediate postpartum recovery needs
, and now we'll look beyond to the months and even years after that: clothing (and particularly bras) suitable for nursing or pumping. Or, if you do neither, if there are any items, clothing or otherwise, that you've found handy for your post-pregnancy body!
For nursing bras, is there a particular style you prefer? Do you have a variety or stick to mainly one type? Do you like the type that snaps up top or the soft stretchy pull-down type? How many nursing bras in general do you have? Fabrics or brands you prefer? How strict are you about no-underwire? What was your timing for nursing bras purchases (i.e., how long until your size stabilized)? Do you have a nursing bra rec that's a little sexier or fancier for when you want to feel more put together? Do you use a special pumping bra?
And after your boobs are outfitted, what next? Can you recommend a particular nursing tank or cami (and do you ever wear just that instead of a nursing bra)? What does your nursing wardrobe look like? Particular dresses, shirts, sweaters, scarves that facilitate quick access? What do you wear 1) while lounging around the house, 2) professional circumstances, or 3) going out and looking cute? Any special pajamas or nightgowns? What brands are friendly to nursing bodies and postpregnancy bodies? Please share!Prior and Upcoming Product Spotlights
