I think both are beautiful! And as you guys now know from my post yesterday, I am one of those people!
I own a few pieces of clothing that are super similar to this. I wear them all the time when I wear more form-fitting dresses. So this is a great piece to get if you are expecting so you can wear it with your form-fitting dresses and then wear for nursing afterwards! It has little buttons at the top so it acts as a nursing cover. Hope you guys love these looks! Since I plan on breastfeeding Riley for quite some time I plan on sharing lots of breastfeeding friendly looks on my blog in the future!
Let me know what you guys think and let me know what else you want to see from me in terms of breastfeeding friendly clothes! Loving all these posts. When I was pregnant with my first my friend started a nursing friendly clothing business. I buy all my stuff from shopburu. I really appreciate your honesty with your post baby body!!
How long are you planning to nurse Riley? Plus your body looks great and you will get back to where you want to be ir just takes some time.
I enjoyed it as much as they did. Ali, I notice you are sharing about nursing fashions, etc. I dont know if you will publish this email or not, but here is my experience. Recently, I went out to a restaurant with my Husband. A woman was nursing a table away. I felt uncomfortable with the situation. She had a vanity cloth, but you know what she was doing. I might sound old-fashioned or may offend the nursing mothers out there but please get up and go to the ladies room.
I feel it sets women back years! It might be a natural act but should be shared intimately! I dont feel the sucking sound is something everyone wants to hear or see out at a nice restaurant.
Moms and babies need to eat also, not sit shamefully in a germy bathroom. Dear Debra- I am a mother to four girls, now in their teens and twenties.
The first one, I was only able to breastfeed for a few weeks, the second I breastfed for almost a year, and the twins-well it was just too difficult. I was so disappointed by your selfish comments.
I go to restaurants even very nice ones! How about the couples who are overly sharing PDA. Even others are constantly talking on their cell phones so everyone sround them knows their business? And believe me, not all of it is proper mealtime discussion! These are things that one has to accept if we are having our meals out with other people. I myself, am more offended with the other things aforementioned above, rather than a mother breastfeeding! Then you will get the quiet, private dining experience you so desire, correct?
Right now, you are saying gross, right?! Well, it is even more gross to consider feeding an infant, with a newly forming immune system, in there! She had probably been up since dawn, has worked around the house, and taken care of the baby all day, and just wants a nice family dinner. Why should she be forced to leave her table and go elsewhere, anymore than you? You both are paying customers, and the baby is actually a member of her dinner party and thetefore deserves to eat with them!
I guess you have never breastfed, so I am also going to let you in on some information. The more comfortable and relaxed the baby is, the better the feeding goes, the less air they inhale, and the more nourishment they receive. The more relaxed the Mom, the more relaxed the baby-and the quieter the child will be as others near their table are able to finish their meals in silence well at least from the well fed baby that is! Breastfeeding is a natural act, one which our bodies were designed for.
You said yourself that she had a vanity cloth, so she was trying to be as tasteful as she could. When a baby is nursing on a breast, they have to put the entire areola in their mouths to suckle properly. So, that sucking sound you speak of is just not possible. That is a sound a baby makes when trying to drink from a bottle, especially when it is close to empty. Maybe; therefore, you should complain about the sucking noise from babies being bottle fed next to you in a restaurant.
I honestly think your comments set women back by more than years! Sadly, my own mother did not understand my desire or need to breastfeed. She made me feel so ashamed about this beautiful, natural thing, that I was too embarrassed to breastfeed my daughter in any public place. I was forced to supplement with bottles, as babies cannot wait to eat, and therefore lost my milk after 2 weeks of breastfeeding.
I learned from my mistakes. I relaxed with my second daughter and just let nature take over. I fed her wherever I had to, covered by a cloth, never supplemented with bottles, and I breastfed until she decided to stop, at around 1 year of age.
She is my healthiest and has the highest IQ of all of my girls. Please think about my comments the next time you see a breastfeeding mother. She is not there to ruin your evening or meal. She just wants to do what is best for her child in the most relaxing and healthy way possible for both of them. Let her be and maybe comment to her on your way out about how proud you are of her for putting in all the extra effort, time, and commitment it takes to successfully breastfeed a child.
Wow some people are really something! Breastfeeding has been around since humans have!!! And will continue to be around as long as we are! Thank you Andrea for this response! What Debra said had me fuming.
You wrote the perfect response to completely and eloquently. Watch out for the hormonal rage to come. My daughter is 2 and boob obsessed. Is it easy to nurse her and be there for her all day and all night?!? We want to feel human and see the isles of Target, other humans, and be taken to restaurants, too.
You make it sound as though someone was getting a blowjob under the table. I hope you realize how ridiculous your entire post sounded and I hope you think twice in the future about even offering up hurtful and negative comments.
Why would you even bother?! It was that or she would be screaming for the whole flight. I can tell you that I never once felt that people looked at me in disgust and I never felt that I offended anyone.
To be asked to nurse sitting on a toilet in a public restroom is a ridiculous thought, By the way, all of my grandkids have also been breastfed and my daughters and daughter in law are comfortable with nursing in public as well. I just want to be sure people know that not ALL of us older folks feel the same way as Debra!
Nursing is a beautiful natural act and I smile when I see a nursing mother. And I know that baby is getting the best start possible. Dear Debra, Next time you see a mother feeding their child, the natural way God intended us to do so, I recommend that you pick your plate of food up and go sit in the ladies room.
Please sit on the toilet, balancing your plate of food attempting not to get germs on anything or contaminate your hands in the process. I hope you enjoy the privacy and sanitary conditions there while eating your meal!! How does it set us back years for a woman to sit in a restaurant and nurse her baby? It is natural and wonderful, and certainly not something that should be shamed or hidden. I think comments like yours are what set women back years.
Nursing mothers have other things to do as well buy groceries, run errands, take older children places, etc. Could not agree more Vanui-when I was breastfeeding it was important for me to be able to be out and about and not feel confined to the house!
It was important for my supply to breastfeed as much as possible when with baby since I had to pump while working. I am disappointed that there are still people that feel that it is wrong to breastfeed in public and that think it is okay to banish someone to the restroom! Debra, I am so very saddened to see you feel this way.
You do not eat your dinner in the restroom, nor do I, and neither should babies. If you have not breastfed before, I know it is difficult to understand. Breastfed babies eat very frequently, and they deserve comfort and respect while eating, too.
Breasts are made for feeding babies, period. Normalizing breastfeeding is what sets women forward. Criticizing a woman for feeding her baby, in whatever way she is able and chooses to do so, is what sets women back. This is the most rediculous comment that breastfeeding in public sets women back.
As a breastfeeding mother it is my right to nurse my baby wherever he is hungry. I had a wonderful older lady come up to me and tell me what a wonderful job I was doing and to keep it up when I was nursing without a cover in a restaurant. More people need to learn from her! Breast feeding is one of the hardest things to do and sometimes babies do not nurse under a cover! You see way more at the beach. Have you seen public bathrooms? Where would you even sit to nurse a baby in there?
I absolutely love love love following you and your little family! I had my first baby a few weeks before you had Riley and I am able to relate to everything that you post. It is refreshing to have someone post honestly! I love the nursing clothes you linked. I will honestly say that has been my biggest struggle with having a baby! I got through labor without any issues thank you epidural!! I love all of these options! Thank you for sharing! I am so glad you found this post helpful.
I am with you. It can be hard to find great nursing friendly clothes. But I think these options are so great! I am a c-section mama of 2 and the body image roller coaster is REAL.
