I'd like to tell you how I make every top/shirt/sweater of mine "nursing" accessible! There are usually two main concerns when a mother breastfeeds: 1) coverage up top and 2) coverage around the belly. I've seen moms nurse with blankets, covers, or use their arms to hide that post baby belly. Read on, and you might not have to do that anymore!
|Be covered, be comfy, be confident|
First way to make any top a nursing top - Use a Belly Band:
Find an old, knit tank top, a size smaller than usual, and cut off the top. Wear it around your torso. Make sure it's snug and close-fitting. Wear your regular bra, and then whatever shirt, sweater, or tank of your choice. When it comes time to nurse, simply lift your normal shirt, and you have access to the boob while your tummy is covered. Super cool. :)
Second way to make any top a nursing top - Make a Nursing Tank:
Since layering is in style right now, this idea is awesome. What you'll need: tank tops, chalk, and scissors. I usually stock up on clearance tanks at the end of summer. You will be cutting these, so you can also use your old tanks for this project.
To begin: put the tank top on, and draw one line under each breast. Take off the tank top and cut the lines, making two slits. Don't make one big one - make two (trust me). When it comes time to nurse, simply lift your normal shirt, and you have access to the boob.
These ideas provide so much coverage, you'll be comfortable and confident needing a blanket or nursing cover. :)
