If you choose to breastfeed, having practical and comfortable nursing wear will make a huge difference to your experience. Luckily, modern nursing clothes incorporate a little style with accessibility and practicality. In this post, we share this year’s hottest nursing wear.
Your bras are your most important nursing purchase. You need a good supply of bras that are soft to wear, supportive and, of course, easy to access for breastfeeding. Here are a few of our favorites:

This robe has a luxurious feel and is perfect to wrap up in.||Comfort and convenience - this nursing gown has slits to allow you to access your breasts modestly. It's great to pack into your hospital bag.|
