    Default Winter Wardrobe for Breastfeeding

    So I've never breastfed in Winter before so now it's getting cold I have no breastfeeding friendly clothes!

    Has anyone who is breastfeeding recently bought any new warm clothes? What did you but and where from? I don't really want clothes made for breastfeeding as I find them too hard to actually ever breastfeed in. Just normal long sleeve tops to pull down easily.

    TIA

    I always layer a singlet under my tops so I pull the top layer up and then the singlet down. Same can be done with a jacket or jumper over the top.

    I wore zip up hoodies last winter with my singlets underneath a lot. They were perfect for only revealing as much skin as you have to when it's so cold. At home I often fed in a fluffy full length bath robe. Also very warm. All available from big w/target/ Kmart. All worked well for us.

    Was actually thinking the same. Interested to see what other hubbers suggest.

    I tended to wear breastfeeding singlets under my normal clothes. That way I could just pull my clothes up and unclip the singlet. No boob exposed to the cold, plus your tummy is warm.

    I put a singlet underneath my normal clothes. So layer a singlet, top and jumper. Thick hoodies I can't really bf in as they don't pull up well enough (bunch up too much at the top), but I just bought some nice wool blend jumpers which are warm but not too thick and they work perfectly. I just pull up the jumper and top and pull down the singlet. Also saves the neck in tops from getting stretched.

    Eta: got the jumpers from jeans west a couple of weeks back.

    Im up in Nth QLD (where it is not starting to get cold at all yet) but with last bubs I wore a BF Singlet under a loose cardigan or loose singlet/TShirt under a cardigan.

    I think for the whole winter I lived in tights, oversized tees/singlets and long cardis

    I always wore a singlet (usually a breastfeeding singlet but anything stretchy works) under another top. If it was super cold I'd wear a long sleeve top with the singlet under. Then if I needed more layers I'd wear a jacket or coat but it had to be soft because I found jackets would end up falling back over his face and it would bother him if it was scratchy.

    Thanks ladies.

    With long sleeved tops over singlet tops, do you usually get one size larger / slightly baggy tops? I just tried on a regular cotton long sleeve top on over a singlet top but it was too tight and fiddly to pull up and get the singlet top down.
