8 whimsical breastfeeding-friendly dresses from People Tree

Hey hey!

I hope you all had a great Christmas, ours was nice and quiet, with the traditional family meals and (too much) good food.

I am sorry I haven´t been able to post regularly lately, as I said before I have started a new course and I am very busy with the assignments. I am also working on a new exciting addition to the blog.

But hey, I think I bring you all nursing mamas an interesting post. I have been breastfeeding my son for almost 30 months now and fashion-wise the most challenging part is always finding suitable dresses. So I nearly jumped of joy when I found all these cute printed nursing-friendly  dresses on People Tree, the fair trade and sustainable fashion brand.

(Psst, some of them are on sale!)

They are usually easy and comfortable garments, and if you want to keep your modesty when buttoning down for breastfeeding in public, you can add a pretty scarf. This reminds me I have to do a post on scarfs, I can’t have enough of them!

Hopeless romatic, 6 breastfeeding and maternity friendly tops and dresses

I have always been drawn to the light, precious, lacy style, the kind that the Lisbon sisters would wear. I would normally add a “masculine” touch like black skinnies or a tailored blazer, but I also like the 100% dreamy, ultra feminine look.  May be a bit impractical for everyday activity but it can be a perfect style for a weekend outing with friends.
