Muuu Muuu… that means hola in my cow language. Do you feel like a cow sometimes?
I have a love/hate relationship with breastfeeding. Putting aside the saggy breasts, the middle of the night milk-puddle in my bed, nursing strikes, a kid who wanted to be glued to my breast for years and another kid who screams at my breast. I love nursing! I seriously do. I think so, cause I’ve been doing it for the past three and a half years so, you know? THERE’S GOTTA BE SOMETHING TO IT.
OH, I know! When my baby locks his eyes with mine and nurses peacefully almost drifting out to sleep. I won’t tell you how often that happens or else I’ll start crying.
Do you know what else is hard about breastfeeding? How tricky and sometimes boring getting dressed becomes.
When I was a first time mom, I think I stopped myself from wearing many things I wanted. I don’t really remember wearing a lot of tops with high necklines. I stuck to the most nursing friendly pieces I found. You know v-necks, wrap tops and some button ups.
The truth is that apart from a few on trend pieces, I like to buy things that I’m going to wear for quite some time. I think I’m not the only one, am I? I refused maternity clothing in both my pregnancies with the exception of two pairs of maternity jeans for my last pregnancy. Nothing else to do with my huge yoga ball. Same for nursing, with the exception of a few nursing bras, I just try to make it work in many other ways with what I have or want to get.
However, this time around I’m a little more open to other options without sacrificing comfort and I’ve found three unexpected tops that are great for nursing during the warmer months. They truly help me feel stylish when I’m feeling like a cow.
