Clothes for Fast Feeding
Many women appreciate the convenience of wearing clothes designed specifically for breastfeeding moms. These shirts, dresses, and pajamas have openings on both sides, allowing women to breastfeed their babies discreetly. While wearing nursing clothes is a matter of personal preference, many women couldn't live without them. "I wear one—usually a nursing tank—everyday and have several nursing gowns/sleepwear that I also use," says Pinson. "Wearing nursing shirts made me feel more comfortable when I was learning how to breastfeed in public; also, I find it more convenient to nurse at home in nursing wear."
Nursing fashion is known best for being practical, but with organizations such at the American Academy of Pediatrics recommending mothers nurse for the first 12 months of babies' lives, more women are breastfeeding longer—which means more fashions to choose from. Today nursing mothers can choose clothes that fit their lifestyles and occasion; whether it's for a postnatal yoga class, an important meeting at the office, or a night on the town, nursing fashions have come a long way with designing clothes that are current and trendy.
