YEAP i share that sentiment
the motherwear stuff esp just seems so overpriced and then so.....well....basic
too. Even Motherhood can barely manage to make cute nursing clothes--it's like they think breastfeeding is the antithesis of "hip mama"
IMO nursing shirts are great for the WINTER--when you don't want your belly getting a draft
and of course that can easily be solved by a bellyband-type thing under any regular shirt.
Nursng dresses, however, are essential IF you like to wear dresses
I mean, in a spaghetti strap dress I suppose you can pull it down, but then you're basically starkers from chin to boob, and that might not be within your comfort zone
I have *a* nursing dress from last time that I paid like 60 bucks for on sale
: and that's it. Just nice to have if the thought of one more day of jeans is gonna make you hurl
of course, i don't wear shorts either....so that might also be considered...hmm..
as for nursing bras, yeah, IMO you can't get away without a least a couple. I woult NOT recommend the k-mart specials tho
they are un-comfy and, well, if you care about cuteness of your underthings, those are NOT the way to go!
I had my super-crazy-cool tie dyed bravado from last time, and I managed to win two more bravados in my size off eBay. I think I paid $28 plus shipping, so i guess that's half the retail price...?
So. IMO 3 nursing bras, one dress just cause i think it's cool to have, and some way of not exposing your tummy in the colder months--
