    ok ladies so i plan to breast feed if im able. question is how many nursing tops as suchshould i get? sounds a bit stupid to not know but i dont really have a clue will one a day be ok ie 7 or am i best to end up wit haround 14? or do i not need "nursing tops" and can get away with other tops?! help?!!

    also second question related though, in terms of night dresses i am more of a nude sleeper usually or pj's if we are at parents i will get some button down nightdresses for hospital but at home i guess il have to wear a nursing bra due to needing breast pads due to possible leakage but will i need night dresses too?

    I haven't bought any nursing tops, fortuntely in this weather vests are perfect as they just lift up. Looser t-shirts or shirts are also brilliant. You'll find that nursing tops are difficult to find and expensive.

    As for night-time, I wear a nursing bra as I tend to leak a lot overnight. Either that or a support vest so I can pop breast pads in. I have a button down pj top, but I found vests are so much easier to lift up in the middle of the night.

    Hope that helps xx

    I've got a couple of t shirts that are feeding tops from h&m and a couple of vests from mothercare. I've also been looking on eBay but they go for loads considering they are second hand!!

    I never had special nursing tops. Layers is the key - a stretchy best top under a t-shirt you can lift.

    The t-shirt comes up, pull the neck of the best down and u are still completely covered . No flabby belly on show. Only thing is make sure top is loose enough to lift up.

    Primary do stretchy vest for about £1 I have them every different colour


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(

    Completely agree, layering is the key and I also bought some great stretchy vest tops from Primark. I also had some huge muslin squares which I used to use when feeding. I would tuck the cloth into my bra strap then cover Max over with the rest of the cloth, hid everything :) The muslin cloths were also great as light covers, Max was a June baby xxx

    Yes to layers! I didn't want my squashy belly on show, so got some vests with hidden support (that way they do for night time too) and wore them under a loose t shirt or even an open shirt/cardi if I was at home. Just pull the vest down and your good to go! :)


    Tapatalking!
