It’s extremely rare to find a top that works well for pregnancy to nursing postpartum. Maia Moda’s Maia top is flawless for this transition.
I’m a big fan of day-to-night, work-to-weekend clothing. The heathered peasant nursing top by Milk is just that, which is why I’m highlighting it as the second item in my Working Mom’s Wardrobe series. You can wear this top with a pair of jeans or style it with a blazer or cardigan for the office. And it’s so comfy you’ll find yourself wearing it to bed!
My son was delivered with ten fingers and ten toes. Blue because of some complications at the end, but otherwise apparently healthy. Our stay at the hospital was a breeze and Ilyas seemed well… Until our first night at home. We could not get him to lie down and sleep. My husband and I tried everything we’d read in the mountains of parenting books. And he just. Wouldn’t. Sleep.
Arianna Huffington suggests that men have an advantage in the workforce because they don’t generally exert as much time and effort (and possibly money!) into their wardrobes. I give you this background because what you’ll find here isn’t your traditional fashion blog. Here, you won’t find an unending stream of styles. Instead, I’m going to focus on the best nursing-friendly fashions for corporate environments.
After my pregnancy, shopping lost much of its thrill. I struggled to find nursing-friendly work clothes that weren’t super unflattering (I would settle for only somewhat unflattering)... Interestingly, a little research explained some of my struggle. Size 14 is the most common in the US, but it’s also the least frequently purchased. Why?
I was struggling. Hard. An old friend from high school (now a brilliant therapist) reached out to me and said, "You are in the fires that form motherhood – and right now the fire is so incredibly hot." Mommin' is life changing, and it isn't easy.
