You reach a certain point in your postpartum journey where style starts to outweigh convenience. I’m sort of at that point. I don’t want to be the “breastfeeding mom” anymore. I want to be the stylish mom who is breastfeeding. I think this also comes with being a third time mom and feeling more comfortable breastfeeding in public. I’ve learned to ditch the nursing tanks and dress for myself – not just for my boobs.
I had so many questions about this eyelet top which has been on repeat lately. It’s great because it snaps up and feels on trend and cute for Spring! I’m all about easy tops that are convenient for nursing in public if needed.
I posted on my Instagram stories this quote:
being a mom is the best reason you’ll ever have to take care of you.
Getting dressed is a version of self care for me. It is a daily ritual that makes me feel good. Getting out of my leggings and nursing tanks is a reminder that there is an individual behind my role as mom. I think it’s easy to get very consumed by our role in motherhood when we are in it (especially during the early days!) and finding those small versions of self care are so important. I’ve learned, after three babies and three postpartum experiences, that putting yourself is important – even if it feels like it’s not. I always say, you can’t pour from an empty cup. You gotta fill your cup in any way that you can!
So here are some pretty items to make those nursing days not feel so restricting!
A cute puff sleeve denim dress with buttons.
An easy sundress.
An easy romper to chase your kids around in.
