Searching to make mum's life easier
Fabulous feeding dress discovered
Breastfeeding was always a cause for concern in my world. My first born was bottle fed after a few fraught weeks of no milk, blisters, tears and exhaustion, so with baby #2 I was preparing for the same turbulent journey.
Thankfully, however, the breastfeeding this time around has been a lot easier. The difficult part now is readjusting my wardrobe to suddenly accommodate this new-found world.
But I’ve recently come across a gorgeous feeding dress from innovation&you that has been a god-send these last few weeks, and it is so flexible in its design it can worn as nightwear or daywear (or both simultaneously, as seems to be the case in my house at the moment!)
Made from 95% bamboo and 5% spandex, it is feminine and flattering in all the right places, so I don’t have to worry about all the baby bumps that are still hanging around. Yet is also stretchy with fabulous inner support, so is insanely comfortable and can be worn with or without a maternity bra (and yes, the breastpads do stay put).
But the thing I really loved about this dress was the clasps. I find the plastic clasps on feeding bras so ugly, and this dress instead closes with small silver magnet clasps which are so much easier to use, and a world more attractive.
There are a few styles and colours available, but I fell in love with the overlay dress in pink and white.
It is so refreshing to wear something bright and feminine... something that makes me feel gorgeous during these weeks where I feel tired, yuk and unattractive.
This dress will certainly be a staple part of my wardrobe for as long as I’m breastfeeding!
