Just like last autumn, this one appears to involve a considerable narrowing of my clothing options. My usual beloved dresses are out and I’m mainly existing in jumpers and jeans or shirts and dungaree dresses. I’m not usually a huge fan of clothes designed specificially for nursing because they’re not really “me”. I don’t want to wear something just because it gives me easy boob access, I want to wear it because it’s comfortable, looks nice, makes me feel good and gives me easy boob access, you know?
Which is why I was very pleased to hear about the new Mother Collection from Frugi. I’ve long been a fan of the brand – they do the cutest baby clothes in beautiful bright colours made from organic cotton. I also love the work Frugi does with charities, donating to various wildlife charities as well as organising warehouse clearance sales to raise money for an orphanage in India.
Anway, the Frugi collection for mums is all about giving women long-lasting, well made, bright and colourful clothes which will last from bump to beyond. The dress I’m featuring in this post is a nursing dress, but it could also work as a maternity dress too.
Not only is it a pretty dress but it’s also incredibly practical for my busy mum life. It’s a great midi length, meaning I can bend down and pick up (and put down, and pick up, etc etc) Baby Girl without the fear of flashing my pants, plus it has a design which makes discreet nursing very easy (see top photo).
If you’re looking for clothes suitable for breastfeeding then it’s definitely worth checking out the collection. And if you want more inspiration for breastfeeding-friendly outfits then check out one of my recent posts for BabyCentre – 21 Breastfeeding Outfits for Autumn.
