Nursing plaid and simple: 10 grunge shirts from Urban Outfitters

I was a teenager during the 90s, so I think grunge has never left me, style wise. Angela Chase from My So Called Life was my first style icon, so go figure.

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.

nursing tip for cold winter nights

This great tip is taken from Elizabeth Pantley’s The 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!

Girly mama – 8 chic nursing friendly dresses from Oasis

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.
