Are you wearing cloth or disposable nursing pads? There are some WAHMs who make great ones.


Except make that a shelf bra cami and no bra! I hate nursing bras, folding down the cups always get in the way...

I don't have a problem with the pads not staying in place...as long as it fits nicely. If it's too loose they might.

This is what I do. I love it, because it covers my belly.

I got some awesome WAHM bamboo nursing pads off FSOT, they're awesome! Wish I could tell you where they came from....

I used victoria's secret sports bras with adjustable straps. They are the best.

Re: Favorite BF top/bra...

Definitely the bravado nursing tanks. I have three and they are my go-to tank if I know I'll be doing a lot of nursing in public in weird places- like travelling and whatever. I love the bravado bras as well, I have a bunch of the body silk ones. They keep pads in place really well. I like Sweet Bobbins on DS for nursing pads- she does some great bamboo velour ones that are waterproof as well.
For nursing in a SSC, I like to have tops that have a few buttons, like a henley shirt so I can just undo a few buttons instead of having to wiggle a shirt around.

In colder weather, tank under a zip up hoodie, or a tank under a l/s button up shirt, and when warmer a tank under a s/s button up, or layer 2 tanks. Soft cup t-shirt bras work great. I haven't owned a nursing bra since nursling #1 and I'm on nursling #4 now!

Regarding the pads, I am a big fan of Milk Diapers. They are absorbent, and I haven't had any movement/pain with them. They dry quickly while being worn, don't seem to dry me out, and I can wear one set for about 24 hours. I also like the Bravado tank tops.

Re: Favorite BF top/bra...

I wear nursin tanks every day. When just hanging out I wear the target brand. Out and about or at work i wear Glamourmoms. I love them! They are very supportive and have mesh that hold nursing pads in place.
