Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default Bras...

Post by Mervs Mum on Fri Jan 02, 2009 9:25 pm

I only have 2 decent :boob: bras Sad 1 black & 1 white :iconredface:

I have a few others that I will wear in the house or in bed that arent great fitting but they'll do.

I'd like some more but I have LOTS of requirements in a nursing bra!!Rolling Eyes

I have long nipples....:iconredface: great for BFing but not great in cold weather!! :pml: so I like 'moulded' bras as they conceal the nips. I'm a 36E/F. When I got fitted he put me in an Fcup which I think make them look as big as they possibly could!! So I snook back and swopped them for E's - I think they look better but they still look like giant granny busters!!!

Any recommendations for a really good up lifting nursing bra - pref moulded or lightly padded - which will make my boobs look normal but still have a drop cup???? Jeeeez...I dont want much do I......Laughing

Anything like this?

http://www.bras4mums.co.uk/nursing-bras/hotmilk-midnight-mystique/prod_191.php

I know what you mean, I felt really unsexy and flumpy in regular nursing bras. It wasn't about making them more appealing, I just felt uncomfortable and just didn't want to feel all mumsy at the age of 20 Laughing

There are other brands other than "hot milk"


Just do a search on google, theres lots around.

That site is ace - I didnt know you could get underwired nursing bras!! Thats the answer to my prayers - I'm sure that would do the trick too.

Yes i didn't know either but I think it might be worth looking into them first as they may cause blocked ducts, I know it was a big thing not too wear underwired especialy in later pregnancy.

The one on the 2nd site is also on the 1st. On that one it said undewire bras mustnt be worn before BFing is well established and 12wks at the earliest.

Well girls my underwired bras just arrived and OMG they are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Very Happy

My boobs look more like my old pre BFing boobs do when they are in a proper underwired bra!!!!:cheer:

I literally squealed with delight!!!!! I ordered 2 for size and when I looked at the return details, the company are based about a mile from my house!!! So I'm doing the exchange in person!! The lady who runs the company is really lovely and said they had really done their research looking for underwired nursing bras so she was really pleased I loved them!!!!

Hoorray for good looking working boobies!!!!!bliss and thank goodness for Breastbuddies!!!
