    This is my best tip for new Mum's. Someone told me when DS was little and it was an awesome idea!

    What is with all breastfeeding tops being maternity too? I understand having a bit of extra belly room in them but I won't need a big baggy belly area once this baby is out! Also why are they pretty much only two styles, can't someone get a bit inventive and not make it so obvious that they're bf tops?!

    I know, right!

    Jeanswest have just released a nursing tank that opens with press studs on the shoulders - they really just look like they're decorative. I am really liking them at the moment, but couldn't try any in my size as they had only just got them in store and weren't even on the shelves yet when I went in.

    One of my biggest negatives with breastfeeding is the restriction in what I can wear.
    I'm lucky I'm small so I can get away with wearing loose stretchy low cut tees that I stretch out to oblivion and need to throw out after a couple of months. Or a button top like a blouse- though I do feel very Mumsy, particularly paired with a cardigan lol.

    Having been either pregnant or breastfeeding since April 2012 I'm dying to wear a pretty top or even better a jumper!!

    I have no idea why designers think we are nursing with massive bellies. And coral is a popular colour- I don't know anyone who looks good in a coral top!

    Oh I'm so with you on the maternity/breastfeeding fashion. How about some tops in nice colours? Majority of the maternity tanks I've seen are black, Grey and white - which is inevitably see through. Jeans west have had some awesome colours online, but are always sold out. Some colour in my life would be amazing. Also, I bought 2 bonds maternity/nursing singlets recently. The white one is fine. The black one I can't even get on. It's supposed to be a 14DD which is what I currently am, but I can't even get the elastic over my boobs to begin with. DH had to help me out of it last night when I tried it on because I got stuck. How on earth are breastfeeding women supposed to get them on with boobs full of milk?!?!

    @M'LadyEm I also struggled big time with the bonds singlets I found the Chloe and Lola brand from Kurt quite good in singlets, bonds maternity bras are also tiny sizing.
    For breastfeeding clothes @JR03 I bought some great tops/dresses from milk and love, there's also breastmates, angel maternity and nursing angel which I used while BF. Unfortunately the nicer clothes also cost a lot more

    I really just wanted a singlet that I could wear to work as I've been using them to hold up my work pants! The ones I have at home are just normal singlets, cheapy Kmart ones, so it doesn't matter too much if they become over stretched really. I just thought a maternity one might save me ruining half of them. I think I'll just wait now until Bub is here and I can see how big my boobs actually get and try them on for size. Might have to look into the Chloe and Lola ones though. I like their stuff .

    Also, it seems Cadbury aren't doing their strawberry filled Easter eggs this year. I'm heartbroken as they are my favourites!

    Oh no, you too? I looked in Coles, Kmart, Target, Big W and Woolies yesterday. No luck
