If you take the decision to breastfeed your baby, then it stand to reason that you are going to want to make the whole process as easy as possible. We are in a great position, because so many technology advancements have allowed for equipment and accessories to make breastfeeding that much easier.
Clothing For Breastfeeding
One of the thing you'll need to consider when it comes to breastfeeding is the clothing that you are going to wear through this time. Nursing bras are essential because they allow for the right amount of comfort and support, but it is what you wear over this that matters too.
When you are breastfeeding in your home you might not think about fashion at all, but it is a different case when you step outside of the home. When you are going out of the house you are going to want clothing that looks good and is comfortable to wear.
On top of that you need to look at tops that you wear which can make life easier when you are breastfeeding. The good news is that there are tops designed for this exact purpose and these are well worth investing in. These tops work in different ways but designs usually incorporate access on either side of your top (often through a wrap style design) as well as one handed access and openings which allow you to breastfeeding easily and hassle free. Mamaway has many different styles of openings, which are designed and tested by nursing mums. We aim to provide the best combination of easy access, discretion and style.
The Right Material
As much as you want tops that are functional, you also want to be comfortable. As you might imagine these tops are all made from different materials however for comfort cotton is one of the most recommended types. Cotton allow your skin to breath and as it is a material that is stretchy it also a good choice for a body that has recently gone through many changes. Viscose is also a great option as it is light and stretchy.
There are different breastfeeding tops on the market. Make sure you have a read through all of the options that are available to you so that you can be sure whichever style of top you invest in, it is the best choice for you, your body and your baby. As we also look at this as an investment, we would recommend to get items that fit both pregnancy and nursing... or even after nursing.
