Anyone who is or has been pregnant knows all too well the seemingly sudden laundry list of things to prepare in anticipation of your bundle of joy – Among them, researching pediatricians (if you don’t already have one), baby proofing the house, and if it’s your first go ’round, you can count on getting used to an entirely new morning routine altogether. Then comes the task of deciding how you’ll go about catering to your baby’s nutritional needs. If you decide on breast feeding, then you’ll likely want to add a nursing bra to your to-get list. Ask any mom who’s done it, and you’ll find it’s a small change that goes a long way.
By the time you began breast-feeding, you’re probably already well familiarized with maternity bras (many women begin wearing them just after their first trimester). While the main function of a maternity bra is to support your breasts as they change and grow throughout pregnancy, nursing bras typically do the same, with the added feat of an easy-access design that allows you to quickly uncover the breast when its breast-feeding time. When choosing the right fit for you, you’ll want to examine things such as your lifestyle to determine whether or not you want a wireless or underwired bra. Other things you might want to consider are ease of use and cup size, then set yourself a fitting appointment to help narrow down your pick.
If you’re shopping for a new nursing brand online, you’re at an abundance of options, but to make things easier, we’ve rounded up a few of the absolute best below.
