Feeding-friendly tops:

There seem to be two options when deciding what to wear when breastfeeding: tuck baby up and under a loose top, or undo and bring baby over the top.  No matter which your preferred technique there’s so much out there to choose from so you can look stylish and stay cool when the weather warms up, but still be able to breastfeed fuss-free.  Here are some suggestions for Spring/Summer, whether you’re an up and under or over & out kinda mama!

Top row L-R: Stripe trapeze, Asos; Double layer stripe, Asos; Pink stripe, A|Wear; Green Leopard print, A|Wear; Floral print, A|Wear;  Feather tunic, Yours (size 16-26)
Bottom row L-R: Palm tree print, Asos Curve (size 18-26); Bright floral, Zara; Peach floral, A|Wear; Polka dot, Tesco; Pale floral, A|Wear; Butterfly print, Wallis

What to look for:

  • Button or zip through tops or shirts
  • Loose vests or blouses which are wider at the bottom to easily lift up
  • Prints work well so you don’t notice stains (or leakages!)
  • Chiffon is a great option as you can wear a light cotton cami underneath with a low neckline to pull down when feeding so your tummy is still covered but you’re not going to overheat on a warm day
  • You could wear one of your pregnancy bump bands even after your baby is born to conceal your tummy when lifting tops up

Choosing a ‘normal’ top for nursing means you can still wear it afterwards, but watch this space for a feature on specially made nursing tops…
