I can’t believe I have an almost 9-month-old baby and I haven’t done a post yet on breastfeeding clothes. Each day I remind myself that this breastfeeding experience is nearing the end. With this being my last baby, I have some mixed emotions on letting go of breastfeeding. I can tell I’m getting ready to be done. I never planned on going past 12 months, so as she gets older I’m starting to do more bottles. Even though I’m looking forward to getting my body completely back to myself, I’m sad to let it go. It just reminds me that the baby stage goes by so fast and you really need to take it all in while you can.
Here is a list of some of my must-have breastfeeding clothes.

Nursing bras- Day and Night
Don’t underestimate the power of a good nursing bra for both day and night. I live in bras right now and the support is appreciated. For daytime, I like to have a good supportive nursing bra with a little padding. My 2 favorite nursing bras are my wireless nursing bra from Target and my sports bra from Leading Lady. Both are super comfortable and of course affordable. I wear them both almost every day.
For nighttime, I have to have something comfortable enough to sleep in, but also something supportive. My favorite night bra is from Simple Wishes. It is so soft and comfortable. I also like the Target sleep bras, but the material is not as soft as the Simple Wishes bra.
The last type of bra I need to mention is a pumping bra. I wish I knew about the pumping/nursing bras when Jack was a baby. These bras make it so convenient for pumping, especially if you are pumping at work. Simple Wishes has a great selection of affordable pumping bras. Because I usually only pump once a day in the morning, my go-to pumping bra is my Medela pumping bra.
High-waisted leggings are everything to me right now. With my postpartum belly, I don’t feel super comfortable always having my shirt up to breastfeed. My high-waisted leggings help cover up my belly and give me some extra support. My favorite leggings at the moment are my Aerie OFFLINE OG High Waisted leggings. They are an affordable option that are great for anyone, not just if you are nursing. I also wore my Belly Bandit Mother Tucker Leggings a lot in the beginning because they offer both postpartum support and also coverage.
It’s not just leggings that I want to be high-waisted, it’s also my jeans. I don’t know if I will ever go back to wearing low-rise jeans. After having babies you just need something that makes your body feel comfortable.
