Re: Nursing clothes - a necessity?
I never wore them only the nursing bra part. But my sister hated the nursing bras too. She always wore regular bras - the kind that were scooped really low in the front on the cup - then she just pulled it out. She insisted on this for both of her sons. To each their own - I guess you will just need to experiment.
I don't know if you are having a home birth, but a mental note for me for the hospital - I want to have a nursing gown. With everyone visiting, the hospital gown suck, and one that is pretty to receive vistors and that you can easily nurse in would have been a good idea looking back on it.
I guess that would be the same at home too when people come to visit right away.
