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!):
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!
As I said before, Urban Outfitters is probably not the first place a mama heads to thinking of getting some maternity or nursing friendly clothes, but you would be surprised of the things you can catch in this hipster heaven. They stock a myriad of young and edgy labels, and if you look really well, you can always find something to fit your personal needs and style.
It’s so nice when I come across a decent amount of breastfeeding-friendly dresses in one place, as they can be quite hard to find. That’s what happened when I started browsing the Oasis store.
The dresses are feminine and chic, perfect for a professional or for those who managed to be chic and polished at all times. I really hope that shirt dresses stay on trend forever, they are a lifesaver for us nursing mamas.
