Breastfeeding On The Go

Whilst breastfeeding may be a breeze for some new mums it can be quite a challenge for most of us. It took me 6-8 weeks to feel comfortable breastfeeding , let alone in public. I perservered and I am glad I did but it was a skill that took my babies and I time to master. Once I felt comfortable breastfeeding in public my next question was what to wear. I breastfed before I started my business so it was all new to me. In fact, my breasfeeding experience is what inspired me to provide quality breastfeeding clothes to the new mums of Australia at an affordable price. Below are some great tips to help you breastfeed comfortably and discreetly in public. Breastfeeding does not mean sacrificing your persoanl style.

1. When you are breastfeeding its' a great time to wear dresses - There are lots of companies desinging maternity dresses that are also purpose built for breastfeeding. Take a look online at just to view the designs available. You can also get crafty with the dresses you currently have in your wardrobbe. If you have any soft, stretchy cotton knit dresses with straps or sleeves that can easily be pulled down these are ideal for breastfeeding. When you are nursing try to wear breastfeeding clothes that are made from cotton fabrics rather than synthetic fabrics to avoid overheating your breasts. When you are nursing the key is to choose dresses that allow for easy access.

2. I recommend that you purchase a few breastfeeding tee's and breastfeeding tanks that you can mix and match with your non maternity wardrobe. Purchasing a few breastfeeding cammi's with built in bra's will be one of the best decisions you make with regards to allowing for discreet and convenient breastfeeding. I love the breatsfeeding cammi's that clip down at the shoulder. I wore them everywhere and even to bed. The styles with an inbuilt bra held my breast pads in place at night so I didn't wake up soaking wet. You can also put your button up shirts to good use when you are breastfeeding as they allow for really easy access. Button up shirts also look chic with your favourite jeans or shorts.

3. Choosing a comfortable pair of breastfeeding pyjamas or a breastfeeding nightie will be a decision you definately won't regret. My best friend gave me a pair of breastfeeding pyjamas before I went into the hospital to have my first child and I absolutely loved tham and jumped online and purchased some more.

4. My tip is to purchase a few breastfeeding bra's that clip dow at the shoulder. In fact, once you stop wearing a regular bra during your pregnancy I recommend that you purchase a maternity bra that is also designed for breastfeeding.

5. Always carry a scarf when you are breastfeeding. Not only will it allow for discreet breastfeeding when you are on the run but scarves are great for covering marks that you will inevitably encouter from time to time on your clothing.




Breastfeeding Clothing

What to wear after you give birth can be confusing for first time new mums. I was still wearing my maternity clothes for about a month after the birth of my first son, for about 3 months after the birth of my second son and about 9 months after the birth of my third son. Unless you are genetically blessed it does take some time and effort for most of us to snap back into our pre-pregnancy shape. If you are breastfeeding your baby choosing clothes that allow for convenient and comffortale nursing will make your life a lot easier. Now is the time to choose tops and dresses that are designed for breastfeeding or at least allow for easy breastfeeding access. My number one tip during this time is to purchase a pair of maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas or a maternity and breastfeeding nightie.

Breastfeeding Isn't Always A Breeze

Breastfeeding can be a breaaze for some new mums but other new mums face a variety of challanges so it great news that there is plenty of breastfeeding support available for new mums. 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

A word On Maternity Sleepwear

I love blogging about maternity and breastfeeding sleepwear because I think they are Gods gift to every pregnant woman and every mum nursing a baby. Lets face it , in the those first few weeks with a newborn some days you won't even want to get out of your pyjamas. Hence, why I believe that maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas are a gift sent to us from above. Maternity pyjamas are fantastic during your pregnancy when comfort is probably one of your highest priorities, Once bub arrives they allow for discreet and comfortable breastfeeding. So, my advice is to purchase a pair of maternity pyjamas which are also purposely built for nursing your newborn baby. My best advice to all of the grandparents, aunts, uncles and best friends out there - if one of your favourite people is expecting soon then purchase them a pair of maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas or a maternity & breastfeeding nightie - they will be forever grateful !

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.
