married to DH, mother to two amazing little boys born May 18/2010 and May 20/2013!
Infertility has been part of this journey - no more littles for us, but so grateful we have two happy healthy boys and we can now begin to heal from that experience
I mean... I guess it just depends.
Personally, my LO is 15 months old and still nurses a lot at night. I've always had a good supply, and healthy letdown, so nursing pads are still necessary for me if I want to avoid soaking my pajama top and bed linens (I do). Thus, I need to wear a nursing bra to hold the pads in place. I suppose if you don't have that issue, or feel fine occasionally leaking all over and having to change the sheets, you wouldn't need to wear the bra!
I really miss not wearing a bra. I wear one 24/7 and my ladies just want to be freeeeeeeeeeeee. But alas.

Its up to your own comfort level. I still wear a nursing bra after almost 9years of breastfeeding, whereas prior to that i didnt. I find it supports my breasts which are heavier because they contain breast milk. I find it really annoying when not wearing a nighttime bra.....

I remember wearing nursing bra's or at least something to hold the breast pads in place when my son was 2 and 1/2 months still. I don't think I have now, and haven't for a while. He is four months old. In the beginning it was the worst, and my breasts needed the support too because anything rubbing on my nipple felt uncomfortable, but that all went away. Its nice how comfortable and easy nursing feels for me now.
My mom suggested that you should wear a good bra all the time while breastfeeding even to bed. This prevents Cooper's ligament in the breast from giving away to a condition known as Cooper's droop. Getting a good look at my grandmother, I agreed.
