Re: Nursing clothes - a necessity?
Everyone has different preference and you will find what works for you.
In my case, I prefer a large, fairly loose shirt. I push it up just enough to let DD latch on. As for my stomach being exposed, she covers the front and my arm covers the side that she's nursing on. The shirt (or sling) covers everything else. I usually sit to nurse. If I stand, I need a blanket to cover the tummy.
I live in Alabama and it's just too hot for layers!
