Breastfeeding Your Baby

Breastfeeding provides your baby with a great start to life. However, just because it is natural doesn’t guarantee that it is easy for some mums - me included. I persevered with breastfeeding my babies, although at times it was difficult, painful and an emotional rollercoaster ride. The good news is that most mums and bubs are able to continue breastfeeding , after the initial hiccups. I found it painful in the early days but thank goodness there is plenty of help at hand if you are experiencing difficulties with breastfeeding. Make sure you seek out help and reassurance from midwives, the Australian Breastfeeding Association and those close to you. 

Breastfeeding in public has been a hot topic in recent years but the great news is that nearly all mothers nurse in public without any problem. There is an array of breastfeeding clothing available now to assist new mums that are on the go with their bubs. Breastfeeding tops allow you to breastfeed discreetly in public and with a greater focus in recent years on maternity fashion there are also plenty of maternity dresses available for both working mums as well as stay at home mums that are designed for breastfeeding too. Choosing maternity tops that are also suitable for breastfeeding will save you money. Motherland also supplies breastfeeding pyjamas which are fantastic for your stay In the hospital and those late night and early morning feeds when you are at home.

However, you choose to feed you baby the girls at MotherLand wish you the very best !

Save Money Buying Maternity Clothes

You don't need to spend a fortune on maternity clothing to look and feel fantastic whilst you are pregnant. Stretch your maternity clothing budget further by purchasing maternity pieces that you can mix and match. This will add versatility and style to your maternity wardrobe without costing you a fortune. At MotherLand we specialise it great quality maternity and breastfeeding clothes at affordable prices If you are working in an office choosing corporate maternity wear that also looks great for a special day or night out will save you money. If you also choose styles that are suitable  to wear during the post pregnancy months and dresses and tops that are suitable for breastfeeding this will save you money in the long run.

If you are intending to breastfeed it is a great idea to purchase maternity dresses, maternity tops and maternity pyjamas that are also suitable for this purpose. Most of our maternity pyjamas are also designed for breastfeeding, as are our maternity nighties. 

Choosing maternity pants, where possible , that you can continue to wear during the post pregnancy months is another helpful tip. Maternity pants, maternity cargo's and maternity shorts with adjustable elastic waistbands are a great choice both during your pregnancy and in the months following the birth of your baby.

Maternity Fashion

Maternity fashion has come a long way in the last decade. Pregnant women can now look effortlessly stylish and are spoilt for choice when it comes to maternity fashion. The concept of MotherLand is to provide stylish maternity clothes to pregnant women everywhere at affordable prices.

Why should I purchase maternity clothes ? - Kristen and I started MotherLand Maternity with a clear goal in mind - to provide affordable maternity clothes that are stylish, comfortable and up to date with the latest trends. Maternity clothes are designed specifically to cater to your growing belly and your changing shape throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

Can't I just wear larger sizes in regular clothes ? - You can, however, larger sizes in regular clothing will look big everywhere, not just in your belly area. Maternity clothes are designed to allow room for your expanding bump whilst still fitting you nicely across your shoulders and hips. Maternity clothes will ensure that you look stylish and chic, stretching in the belly whilst fitting your body nicely everywhere else. Maternity clothing is also a lot more comfortable than oversizes regular clothing which is really important during pregnancy, especially in the later months.

When will I need to start wearing maternity clothes ? - You will probably start noticing that your regular clothes are starting to feel a bit tight somewhere between 15 and 18 weeks into your first pregnancy. This can be much earlier for subsequent pregnancies. I started wearing maternity clothes when I was 18 weeks pregnant for my first pregnancy, 15 weeks for my second pregnancy and just 13 weeks for my third pregnancy.

What are the best fabrics to wear when I am pregnant ? - We suggest that you purchase maternity clothes made from stretchy, breathable fabrics that will cater to your changing shape and keep you cool. A good quality cotton or bamboo jersey is a great choice for casual maternity clothes such as tee's, tanks, maternity leggings and casual maternity dresses such as wrap dresses. Maternity pyjamas made from a stretchy cotton or bamboo jersey that will stretch over your growing belly, and then regain their shape are also a great choice. MotherLand stocks an extensive range of evening maternity wear made from more dressy fabrics such as satin/ spandex and polyester/ spandex  which are good choices for evening maternity dresses and tops.

Should I purchase breastfeeding clothes ? - Breastfeeding tops, dresses and sleepwear will allow you to breastfeed comfortably and discreetly which is especially convenient in public places. They are also very convenient during your hospiatl stay when medical staff and visitors are contantly visiting. I loved my breastfeeding pyjamas for late night and early morning feeds. My friend once said to me ' now that I have tried breastfeeding clothes I couldn't live withou them '. Breasfeeding clothes offer convenience, allowing you to breastfeed discreetly without exposing your breasts and belly. Breastfeeding clothes made from cotton jersey or bamboo jersey will keep you cooler and they are more effective at absorbing moisture than synthetic fabrics. 

What are your best selling maternity clothing items ? -  MotherLand has quickly become a popular shopping destination for pregnant and breastfeeding mums. Our maternity sleepwear and our maternity evening dresses are very popular. Our most popular individual styles in our maternity clothing range are our versatile maternity pants, our maternity wrap dresses, army green maternity cargo pants, essential maternity abd breastfeeding tee's, hot maternity jeans, polka dot maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas and our 10 way maxi dress.

MotherLand is expanding rapidly as pregnant women everywhere are discovering that maternity clothes can be affordable whilst still being stylish and trendy. Our maternity clothes are made from great quality, stretchy fabrics designed to cater perfectly to your changing shape throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is a wonderful experince and gives your baby a great start to life and is a good chance to relax and bond with your baby. Whilst some new mums breeze through breastfeeding for the first time, others find it a big challenge. For me, breastfeeding was a skill that I found very challenging and at times painful. In reality it can be a frustrating and at times painful skill that can take time and lots of practice to master. The good news is that most, not all, breastfeeding problems can be overcome with perserverance. 

When my first baby was born I had unrealistic expectations - I thought breastfeeding was going to be easy and felt like a failure when I experienced difficulties. I seeked out the help of the midwives at the hospital and spoke to other mums who were breastfeeding and soon realised that I wasn't alone. I think it took about 6 weeks until I reached the point where I felt comfortable breastfeeding. It is recommended that you breastfeed as soon as possible after the birth of your baby. There are lactation specialists in most hospitals so they and the midwives are a great source of help. I remeber having 3 nurses around me showing me how to position my baby (lol).

If you choose to breastfeed let your nearest and dearest know that breastfeeding is important to you. This will increase your chances of having a support group immediately around you. Advice on breastfeeding has changed over the years so it is very possible that your mum or your grandmother have different advice that they received all those years ago. If you have already left the hospital and you need some help with breastfeeding you can find lactation specialists in your local yellow pages or through your local hospital. The Australian Breastfeeding association also offer phone support.

Your breasts will need a lot of care when breastfeeding. Wearing a comfortable bra that gives a good amount of support will help reduce the chance of back and shouler discomfort. Expressing a small amount of milk and rubbing it gently on your nipples during the early days of breastfeeding is supposed to help nipple grazes. If you do experience painful, lumpy breasts make sure you seek medical help as some new mums do get a blocked duct or mastitus which can be very painful and impede your milk flow.

I found that breastfeeding in a quiet location helped me feel relaxed during the few weeks (although this can be difficult, if not impossible when you also have a toddler). Breastfeeding can become a heated issue (literally) as your body tempreature rises, so if possible sit in a cool location and wear comfortable, lightweight clothes. There are various styles of breastfeeding clothes available to purchase online or in maternity clothing stores which are specifically designed for breastfeeding mums. Choose fabrics that are made from natural fibres such as cotton or bamboo rather than synthetic fabrics which will make you feel hotter and sweat. Make sure you have a tall glass of water handy as you may feel very thirsty during or after breastfeeding. Investing in a comfortable pair of maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas will ensure you keep your tummy covered when breastfeeding whilst allowing easy access to the breast. They are also great during your hospital stay when visitors and medical staff are coming and going.

There are a few different styles of breastfeeding tops available. MotherLand stock maternity and breastfeeding cammisole tops that clip down from the shoulder straps to allow for discreet breastfeeding. Our most popular style of breastfeeding tops, breastfeeding pyjamas and brestfeeding nighties are those that you simply push to the side to allow access to the breast. We stock an extensive range of affordable, comfotable and trendy  breastfeeding clothes that you can purchase online now. The girls at MotherLand wish you the very best during this incredible time of your life. xxx

How Do I Know What Size Maternity Clothes To Buy?

There is no exact formula for properly gauging what size your new body will grow into eventually, but it may help to know that most maternity designers size their collections to match pre-pregnancy sizing. 

MotherLand makes choosing your correct size even easier by displaying a size chart and measurements with instructions to ensure the best fit.  

The extensive range of maternity and breastfeeding clothes at MotherLand has undergone rigorous fit testing to ensure comfort and durability is equally as important as style and modern design.

The MotherLand range is designed using high quality soft and stretchy fabric that allows plenty of room to grow and move, without feeling uncomfortable and restrictive. Many of the MotherLand maternity pants feature a soft belly band style top which can be worn over the belly or folded down underneath, which is the perfect style for growing bellies.

Their affordable range comes in sizes 6-24 and also includes everything from maternity jeans, maternity tops, maternity dresses, maternity pyjamas as well as breastfeeding wear, evening wear and much much more.

Comfortable Maternity Pyjamas


Being pregnant and caring for a newborn baby can be completely exhausting for any pregnant women or mother of a small baby, especially when you also have older children to care for. I think pregnant women throughout the world would agree that a comfortable nights sleep can make all the difference. This is especially important during the later stages of your pregnancy and in the first few months of your newborns life, when changes to a pregnant womens body can take its’ toll physically. Any new mum who is feeding a newborn baby every 3-4 hours would also agree that feeling comfortable whilst sleeping and breastfeeding is a high priority. I recall the feeling of complete exhilaration when I finally had six hours of uninterrupted sleep when each of my children starting sleeping longer between breastfeeds.

There is such an extensive range of maternity clothing available now and investing in some comfortable maternity sleepwear is well worth the money. Whether you prefer maternity pyjamas or a comfortable maternity nightie there is an array of styles to choose from. If you want to get the best value for your maternity sleepwear purchase the girls at motherLand recommend that you choose a pair that is also designed for breastfeeding. This will ensure that you are able to breastfeed comfortable which makes the world of difference when you are feeding late at night, early in the morning or if unexpected guest drop by. We also recommend that you choose maternity sleepwear made from great quality, stretchy fabrics that will cater perfectly to the changing shape of your body throughout your pregnancy as your belly expands and then after your baby is born. Maternity pyjamas pants vary in style – some are designed to be worn over your baby bump, some are designed to be worn under your belly whilst others are designed to worn either over your bump or folded down and worn underneath. MotherLand has recently introduced a luxurious bamboo maternity nightie (picture above) which is also designed for breastfeeding. It is made from a super soft, luxuriously comfortable fabric and would also make the perfect gift for your favourite pregnant girl to pack in her hospital bag.
