I’ve been so fortunate that I’ve been able to nurse both of my children with relative ease. I do not take that fact for granted. Although that nasty mastitis/abscess business right after Corinna was born wasn’t fun. Boy did that hurt! What I wish someone had told me about breastfeeding before I became a mom, is that it affects your entire day, not just the times you are feeding. I’ve found that I have to plan my entire wardrobe around nursing friendly dresses and tops. Now that I have my hands full with two little ones, I need the nursing process to go as smoothly and quickly as possible. Today I’m sharing some go-to nursing friendly dresses that are perfect for the fall season!
Nursing Friendly Dresses for the Fall Season
SHOP THE POST
There are more nursing friendly dresses available than you’d initially realize. While you might think it needs to be from a maternity brand, as long as the dress has buttons down the front or a wrap style, it will most likely work. That’s why I have been wearing this $24 Amazon dress non-stop! The buttons are cute and functional. The dress I’m wearing in these photos is a shirtdress, so again, one of my favorite styles of nursing friendly dresses. I can’t believe it’s only $35! I don’t like to spend a lot on nursing dresses since my body is still changing a bit. That’s why I rounded up a bunch of great nursing friendly dresses for fall that are under $100 below. For fall I try to stick with longer sleeve styles, longer hemlines, thicker fabrics, and more muted colors.
I included non-maternity brands below because I wanted these dresses to be really wearable, no matter what stage of motherhood you’re in. But Motherhood Maternity, Hatch, Boob Design are some of my fave spots to find post-maternity, and regular maternity, clothing! I’ve also heard really good things about Ingrid & Isabel but haven’t tried it. Let me know if any of you have!!
