Re: Non-nursing tops/shirts question

I don't use nursing tops. I do what the pps do, I have a couple shirts I got at wal-mart on clearance for $1 that are low cut enough to use as ones. Mostly I use a regular spaghetti strapped low cut (or stretchy) tank as an undershirt and a regular shirt on top. I pull up the regular shirt, pull down the tank, and let him have at it. No one can see a thing and my breasts are even more covered than investing in $30 nursing tops! and noone has to look at the weird strap going across the top of my breast from my nursing bra Now nursing bras I couldn't do without! I got them for $13 a piece at the outlet in town!

Re: Non-nursing tops/shirts question

I do several of the same things as the others.

I wear layered tanks from old navy the ones w/out bras (I hate built in bra's because I have F's, just don't fit in that little spot they have) OR I use the Blush shirt ( Or Hip-T just like bella bands but made for layering so your butt doesn't show (your assets LOL) I also use button down shirts, the shirts that fold over it's self, low cut shirts too. Old Navy actually has cute nursing stuff now.

Re: Non-nursing tops/shirts question

While I like nursing tops, sometimes non-nursing tops are just as convenient. I like ones that have snaps or easy buttons down the front part way, far enough down that I can pull myself out when opened, and then use my homemade nursing cover over top, and nothing shows. I also read a comment by Martha Sears (can't remember where) that you can use a fully button up shirt, but unbutton the BOTTOM and tuck the baby up in there, covering your belly. HTH

In the summer I am more apt to use real nursing shirts to cut down on the layers in the heat.
I LOVE this idea!

I buy 2 or 3 nursing tanks from target or old navy and wear it under my regular shirt.
