A must have breastfeeding accessory – the  Breast Vest

A must have breastfeeding accessory – the  Breast Vest

Breastfeeding your baby is sooooo much easier if you have the right tools, and by tools I mean clothing. It didn’t occur to me when I fed my first baby that I’d have a much more relaxed and successful transition into a nursing mum  if I had clothes which allowed quick and easy access, didn’t show too much post natal wobble and weren’t making it too obvious what I was doing. While I learnt how to master this new skill, I didn’t want the additional worry about all the above but I also didn’t want to stick a blanket over my baby’s head, all my boys have been summer babies so it was neither safe or convenient hiding them under there plus I needed to be able to see what I was doing anyway. Anyway, the whole blanket thing is about as subtle as an elephant. Talking of which, elephants  and rooms, if you’re feeding in front of someone else who’s not so used to this natural and beautiful thing,  it’s can be easier to look like your just giving your baby a cuddle. A blanket or most of your mid drift on show does not have the same effect. Buuuuuut. As babies can be little money suckers leaving you with little extra dosh to spend on yourself, and while there are some beautiful and practical nursing clothes on the market, there is an option to carry on using your ordinary clothes by using a BreastVest. An essential breastfeeding accessory from Breastvest I’ve been the proud owner of a white BrestVest for quite a while now. It’s my wardrobe staple and I’m often in a panic when it’s in the wash! The concept and design is simple really. It looks just like a vest top with thin straps but sits below your nursing bra , almost like you’re wearing it back to front, when you need to feed your baby you can lift up your top and it keeps your tummy covered. The material is light enough to wear all year round and thin enough to wear under almost any top. I’m now the proud owner a black one too so now I can wear almost all the tops in my wardrobe and not worry about finding something I can feed confidently in.    They come in sizes small, medium and large so you won’t need to keep buying new ones once your size changes, as well a several different colours, I’m happy with my black and my white one but there are brighter ones to choose from.
