You Can Still Wear Dresses
I post a lot of outfit of the day photos on my Instagram account, and one of my favorite go-to pieces of clothing is a fun dress. Oftentimes, other nursing mothers will comment that they wish they could wear dresses, but they can't because they're nursing. I say, nonsense! You just have to be strategic with what types of dresses you wear, but you don't have to ditch dresses entirely! Go for a soft, stretchy cotton knit with straps or sleeves that can easily be pulled down to nurse. This dress here is perfect for that.

Being a new mother is at times complicated, overwhelming and full of emotions and questions. Since I blog about style on a regular basis on my personal blog, and I'm a nursing mother, I get lots of questions about what to wear when nursing, especially when out in public. Which styles work best, which offer the most discreet and easy access, and even what brands of nursing gear I like the most. The number one tip I like to tell friends and readers is to not limit yourself when nursing. Just because you're nursing, doesn't mean you can't wear dresses or pretty things; it just means you have to be a bit more strategic and thoughtful when picking your outfits in the morning. Here are some of my most basic tips of what to wear, and what not to wear when nursing. -By Andrea Howe
