We’ve recently just had a baby boy (I’ve yet to do a full official announcement on the blog yet, but it’s coming I promise!) and I am breastfeeding him, and nearly four weeks into our journey I’ve been searching online for some breastfeeding friendly fashion. I currently only have a couple of dresses that are suitable and I definitely need a few more appropriate pieces to add to my little collection.
So, here’s a little wishlist of clothing, all dresses as I don’t wear trousers/jeans at all, that are absolutely perfect for breastfeeding.
Nursing Textured Skater Dress // £16 // ASOS
This is a dress I already have and wanted to share it with you in case you’re also looking for inspiration. It’s absolutely gorgeous and really comfortable. It’s a royal blue shade with a hidden panel for nursing. It’s a bargain at £16 in the sale too!
Long Sleeve Striped Dress // £58 // Frugi
I’ve been eyeing this dress up for ages and was going to purchase it whilst pregnant and for some reason didn’t. Again this has a hidden panel for nursing. I love the breton style striped top with the plainer fabric at the bottom, perfect for pear-shaped ladies!
Ditsy Nursing Wrap Dress // £32 // ASOS
A cute little print in a wrap style dress making it easy to breastfeed in. A lightweight fabric too as it gets a little hot whilst feeding. The perfect little dress for the summer.
50s Style Black Sleeveless Midi Dress // £125 // Rokit
I’ve recently just discovered Rokit who sell vintage fashion, and who doesn’t love a bit of vintage styling?! I spotted this 50s dress which has double button fastenings at the front, the ideal design for feeding baby in. Definitely a piece built to last, it looks really flattering too!
Dark Blue MAMA Nursing Dress // £29.99 // H&M
H&M do great maternity and nursing dresses at really affordable prices and I really like this dress along with the denim dress linked below.
Denim MAMA Dress // £34.99 // H&M
This dress isn’t labelled as a nursing dress but it would work perfectly due to it’s shirt style with buttons down the front which gives baby easy access to feed.
Woven Nursing Dress // £48 // Mamalicious
You can’t go wrong with a simple black dress and this one from Mamalicious looks fab. It has some lace detailing to the side seams of it which adds an extra element to it.
As well as dresses I’ve recently worked out that layering is perfect for breastfeeding. I’ve been wearing skirts with well fitting nursing bras and vests with a jumper over the top. The jumper can then be pulled up and the vest pulled down to make for some discrete feeding.
Can you recommend anywhere for breastfeeding fashion essentials?
