About nursing bras- I think if I had F or G boobs I'd need really good bras too! Oh my! I only get up to a D cup when nursing, C's regularly. And before I had babies I was a large B cup and could go braless! Ha, not anymore, NO ONE would want to see that, lol. I do love my nursing bras from Motherhood Maternity- they were "nighttime" bras, without underwire, very comfy! I still use them for sleeping in, lol. But other than that I won't buy special nursing bras. It doesn't seem to matter as long as there's access to the boob. And, yeah, I've walked around with the clippies undone and my boobs leaking before, and thats just frickin embarrassing...
This is just a tip to new moms- if the Boppy works for you, go for it. If you need help nursing, take it! Unfortunately my boobs started sagging as soon motherhood began, so I have no problems getting the baby's mouth to the breast. Honestly, I saw people carrying their Boppy's everywhere with them and they needed them for nursing, but that just wasn't for me. But, by all means, try it out and use it if it works. :)
Also- diaper bags. They're annoying to me. Do you carry a purse and a diaper bag? I have a "cute" diaper bag that has spots for keys, phone, and cards, but, I don't know... I feel like I lose a little sense of my independence when I start to carry around only a diaper bag. And a purse with a diaper bag is too bulky (I'm kinda one of "those" people who has a huge purse with just about anything you'd need in it. Sometimes I switch to my small purses and then I think "Darn it! I don't have a such-and-such, it's in my big purse!" lol) What I found worked well was using a backpack as a diaper bag and purse. I guess it didn't feel as "mommish" as a diaper bag alone. (Does that even make sense?) Plus, with the baby in the sling and the junk in the backpack, I have my hands free for whatever else I'm doing. And it balances the weight out, lol. Plus cloth diapers are so darn bulky you need kind of a big bag to hold it all. Anyway, that all just came back to me as I was looking at my $70 diaper bag, thinking "Do I even really like that thing?"
So, not sure if this fits into this thread of not, but what kinds of nursing pads did you like? (I figure this info might help new mamas out as well.) I had a huge box of disposable pads left over from DS when I had DD, but I'd like to buy some reusable ones this time around. Only for use in the beginning when feedings are irregular and frequent, and let down is unpredictable. There are so many choices out there!
