Re: Comfy nursing clothes

I lived in bravado tanks for the last 2 babies. They are comfy and you can just layer something over for going out but at home I totally wore them solo.

I very rarely had any actual nursing clothes. I usually found that regular stuff was just as easy/practical. I would pull up a t-shirt with the tank under or whatever. The nursing clothes that I tried were sort of awkward to use, IMO. That is for actual clothes though--I do use nursing bras/tanks because they are a lot easier and fit me better.

I've always used Lansinoh but I got some Mother-ease reusable ones this time and they are AMAZING, I leaked so much less and smelled so much better I have the bamboo and the stay-dry and I prefer the stay dry. They are pricey but I got mine new on ebay for much less.

And I started wearing regular t-back bras after my first nursing bras wore out--the shape is so much better and they unsnap in the front so they work great for nursing, plus they're cheaper. I use these, though probably a good sleep nursing bra would be best right at first because these are underwire.
This is me too. I found nursing clothes and bras to be too fussy so I never replaced them. I use a bra that I guess is a sports bra but with spaghetti type straps and regular shirts and just lift up. If I'm going to be in public I now put a belly band thing (the thing for extending your shirt during pregnancy that is just like a tube top) on under my shirt to keep my back covered--baby/blanket/nursing cover cover the front fine.

I have wool nursing pads which I love but were quite $$. From GMD.

With DS I had to quit wearing a bra at night for a while and just change my wet shirt when I woke up to feed DS because I was having yeast problems between my breasts. It was always damp and gross. I'm hoping the cooler fall weather will help with that.
I can undo my bra clip with one hand, but I can't redo it with one hand. It just takes a second to hook it back together with two hands, though, and it doesn't bother me.
