Curating a Breastfeeding-Friendly Closet: Nursing Essentials

Breastfeeding can be a challenge, but dressing for it shouldn’t be. We are all about support, and making nursing on-the-go as easy as possible, which is why we’ve put so much time, energy, and new mama testing into the nursing bras and camis we offer, and why so many of our maternity dress and top styles are breastfeeding-friendly, for extra mileage in that postpartum period. Here are a few essentials you’ll be happy to have at any stage of pregnancy, and you’ll love them all over once you bring baby home.
