If you’re a nursing mom, one thing you might not have thought as much about is — what the hell am I supposed to wear? Especially as you begin to think about leaving the house. And silly ideas like that.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many a mom has underthought this as well.

I will tell you right now that for your second (or more) baby, you won’t give this two thoughts. Nay. You’ll simply hike up (or down) whatever you’re wearing and get the job done.

But when you’re first getting started, it’s really nice to have some easy-to-nurse pieces in your arsenal. We’ve amassed our favorite nursing pieces in each category, the rest are on the website. Enjoy —

Tanks

$ — Target, Gilligan & O’Malley Henley Cami ~ $20

For the price, you can’t beat Target nursing tanks. This mom-favorite cami is perfect to wear under tops or to bed. It’s soft and stretchy and folds down at the strap. Comes in three colors and runs true to size, so stock up on these! *For smaller busted women, can be used in place of a nursing bra.

$ — Undercover Mama Undershirt ~ $25

Undercover Mama is so cool because you clip it onto any nursing bra hook and pull everything down at once — all while keeping your belly covered. See a demo here. Perfect for work, pumping, and covering your belly when you are feeding in public.

$$ — Seraphine Black Nursing Tank Top ~ $39

Sometimes, you just don’t want your top to look like a nursing top. Seraphine makes a good basic tank with lift-up access for nursing. Soft, stretchy, breathable fabric grows with you from pregnancy to postpartum to nursing. This is a higher quality top that will last.

Also, for dads, we recommend the Bondaroo by Dadware. It’s a mens shirt that has a flap for easy access to dad’s chest. Moms shouldn’t be the only ones to get skin-to-skin bonding time.
