We are having a little grunge revival of sorts lately, so I thought it would be fun to adapt this trend for nursing ladies. Urban Outfitters has a wide choice of cool, oversized plaid shirts, roomy enough for the first months of pregnancy and super ideal for those first weeks of constant breastfeeding and mind-numbing sleeplessness. When you find yourself feeling mumsy, grab a comfy flannel shirt and get your edge back (kind of).
I know I’m showing my age here but, what’s with the no-pants thing? Angela wouldn’t approve.
It’s that time of the year again, when nights start getting chilly and early school mornings get fresh! Soft, open and neutral cardigans can get you warm and stylish in two seconds, and they are obviously maternity and nursing friendly too. Here are my fave cozy cardis for fall (top to bottom, left to right):
I am so glad kimonos are on trend right now, because that means that there are lots of them to choose from, and some of them are actually beautiful AND affordable. They give you instant glamour, whether you are in the final swelling months of your pregnancy or exhausted with an absorbing baby.
Here is a selection of my 10 favourite mama-friendly kimonos around the internets (and don’t miss out other mama friendly fashion inspiration on Pinterest!):
Newsflash! A cozy cardigan keeps you warm when it gets chilly like these autumn days. Who would have thought, hu? Well, in all its obviousness, I want to emphasize the goodness of this classic garmet: it’s super mama friendly, like these open versions that envelop the baby bump or give you easy access for nursing.
A graphic style is perfect when you want to add a quirky touch to your outfit, and the neutrals are a safe haven in the crazy daily caos. What’s your pick?

This great tip is taken from Elizabeth Pantley’sThe No-Cry Sleep Solution book, and it’s so useful when you have to nurse your child several times on cold winter nights. The book didn’t work for my son to sleep through the night, but it is an interesting read, specially if you are craving some uninterrupted rest and don’t want to go through the sleep-training route. It might work for you, you never know!
