New Mommy Must-Haves: Breastfeeding With Style And Grace

In the throws of fresh motherhood, many of us find ourselves barely keeping it together, let alone maintaining any sense of our former fashionista glory days. Throw in the challenges of breastfeeding on-the-go and most of us quickly find ourselves feeling like a hot mess. When it comes to nursing gracefully, it’s all about comfort and easy access. We rounded up a few tricks from the nursing trade to help keep things running smoothly and stylishly. 

Trade out your tired nursing cover up for a chic lightweight scarf.

V-neck t-shirts are a must. Opt for a high quality cotton so it will hold its shape. Choose one that is a size bigger to save you the trouble of having to stretch and lift the shirt.

Feeling fancy? A cross strap dress (with a plunging neckline) or a strapless dress can easily pull down on one-side for easy access.
