Re: Nursing gear

I am hoping to either buy nursing tanks from Undercover Mommaor convert my tanks to attach like theirs do. I HATE draping, it feels like this huge neon sign over me saying, "hey everyone, I'm nursing" and all of my LOs have HATED having anything over them. But I am super self conscience of my extra mid-section, so I LOVE wearing tanks to *hide* that area. And most people aren't even aware when I am nursing, so it works for me.

Have any of you ladies had any experience with the tanks from Under Cover Momma? Looking for some feedback.

I have never had good luck with buying nursing bras prior to giving birth. By the time I had my 3rd, I wised up and stopped at Motherhood Maternity to pick up some after I leave the hospital and my milk is in. I must have been quite a site... hubby carrying a newborn, 7 yr old walking and me pushing an almost 3 yr old in the stroller barely able to stand upright. At least with the stroller, I had something to lean against and help keep me steady!! Oh, and I had to leave the hospital with my staples still in... OUCH!!

Re: Nursing gear

I also have ridiculous boobs (currently a 36k, and I was a 36G post first baby). I LOVED my Glamour mom tanks when I nursed my first...I will probably have to get a larger size for this one, though. I am still doing trial and error to find something supportive, comfortable, and easy to hook/unhook!

With my first baby I found a bunch of undershirt type tanks at old navy for 99, then I just cut them on top, used my nursing bra under and it was perfect for hiding my new mom belly! But I have always liked nursing tops for sleeping, I got mine at target and I have a couple that I can FFS to anyone who wants them...I was pretty small on top, so they're either small or medium...

sorry, i'm really bad at autocorrect and I don't like proof reading!

REALLY cheap nursing bras on Zulily today ($12 for 2!). Too bad they only go up to a D cup or I would buy a ton of them! The brand is "A Mother's Love". Here's a link, http://www.zulily.com/invite/aheidenberg399

Re: Nursing gear

I can never seem to find good quality, decent priced nursing stuff in my size. I guess no one seems to belive that large woman should nurse. I am around a 46f-g

I have a wicked time too, right now I am a 34J or 36H depending on the thickness of the band. Why in the world do most nursing bras stop at DD?
