Hello Friends, I started to write this post a loooong time ago and the pictures are from the autumn 2014, but I think this outfit fits perfectly in February too.
I want to share my experiences about what to wear while breasting feeding. As most mums know, it is not very easy to find nice tops designed for breastfeeding. The selection of tops designed to breastfeed in is very limited and very boring. I suppose the tops below is the most traditional breast feeding top. I bought mine from H&M. When it comes to the design they are plain and a little bite boring. Further, you are not able to breastfeed in a discrete way in them. For use at home they are ok and they kept their shape and color ok, but after about 3-4 months of use I would not wear them in public anymore.

I think that the two tops below (also from H&M) are much more fun/stylish and it also easier to breast feed without showing your boobs for everyone. I have had the grey one for several months and it has kept its shape pretty well. The black one had pretty thin fabric, and it did not last very long, but I was the most modern I could find and not very expensive. Last time I looked they were not available at H&M anymore, but my experience of H&M is that they do new versions of the same models.
However, the best solution for me have been to wear a big or very elastic camisole or a breast feeding camisole beneath and a short wide top/sweater above, like in the pictures. That is what I wear most of the times when I know I might need to breastfeed in public. Yeep, the little boy is still partly breastfeed! The camisole protect me from showing my stomach to everyone and the top will cover the baby’s head and my breast. It has been much more convenient than using a scarf for cover, as my little boy (and he is not unique in that way) wants to play with the scarf.
For the less shy person a blouse or shirt might be a good option, but I have not been comfortable with that.
I might share my point of view on breastfeeding in a later post, but this will have to do for this time. A mum needs to take advantage of the time when the child is sleeping. Have a nice week everyone!
