Today's nursing mother can look fashionable any time of the day in the newest styles of nursing clothing. While most women can breastfeed in the majority of their regular wardrobe, nursing clothes makes breastfeeding in public even easier and more discreet.

Breastfeeding Discreetly

Whether you are a working mom or a stay at home mom, the issue of breastfeeding discreetly has probably come up at one time of another. Until you become more adept at certain breastfeeding positions, you may feel awkward and ill at ease as you try to maneuver your hungry baby towards your breast while remaining covered up at the same time. There is still much controversy surrounding those mothers who breastfeed in public, but luckily many state legislatures are jumping on the bandwagon to support a woman's right to feed her baby in public. No longer should women be banned to the toilet seat of an unsanitary public bathroom in order to nurse their baby without offending anyone.

Still, many women look at breastfeeding as a private moment to be shared only by themselves and their babies. Thus, manufacturers are listening to what women want, and they've designed nursing clothing that is both flattering and functional. With a variety of styles and prices to boot, you can create a wardrobe full of nursing clothing without breaking the bank.

Do It Yourself

If you are handy with a needle, you can actually sew your own nursing clothing or turn simple pieces of clothing into artful nursing outfits. For directions on how to convert a simple t-shirt into a breastfeeding t-shirt, click here. If you're ready to tackle a new pattern, look at Jalie.

Breastfeeding Clothing Styles

Once you begin searching for breastfeeding clothing, you might be surprised at the styles that are available. Many women think they are resigned to breastfeeding in regular clothing, pulling up their shirts, hiding under blankets, or simply moving to a more private area. With today's breastfeeding clothing styles, you can breastfeed your baby, and nobody will be the wiser. In fact, you may have people comment about how precious your baby is as she sleeps in your arms, while all the time she is breastfeeding contentedly.
