As a nursing Mom, I've done quite a bit of research on nursing apparel that would help make nursing easier on myself. After pumping for eight months with Big JaMonkey, I never had the problem of pulling out a breast to feed in public. With our newest addition, I am having success and plan to keep it up. Nursing in the hospital required pulling curtains, getting pillows and then pulling your shirt up, so I finally broke down and started researching options on making this process much easier on me.
There are a few things that I discovered after looking for nursing clothes. The first thing was that there wasn't much to choose from. The next is that they aren't cheap! Then I realized something great. Layering a tank top with a regular shirt so that you aren't hanging out up top or showing your entire midriff. So my search was on to find a Nursing Tank Top to purchase to start wearing underneath my regular tops. I wasn't willing to pay $50 for a tank top, so I had nearly given up until I found the Undercover Mama.
A Mom invented product that solved the same problem that I just stated above. These Moms get it! They created the Undercover Mama, a simple garment that you wear under your clothes. But instead of having another set of clasps to undo to feed your baby you attach the top straight to your nursing bra. You don't have to worry about a second set of straps to adjust to the proper length or hid under your shirt. It also has two different kinds of clasps for you to find the best way to attach it. Both hold on strong.
The other great thing about this top is the material. It has a great deal of stretch to it. Perhaps you've seen some of those compression tank tops that help suck in your post-baby belly? I also found them to run super expensive. The Undercover Mama has a strong material that helps keep you all tucked in.
I LOVE THIS TOP! It is not only a nursing Mom essential, but any woman can rock this top year round. Even after you are done nursing, you can clip this top to your bra for an easy undershirt.
You can find the Nursing Tank By Undercover Mama for only $25. Half the price of other nursing tank tops and it does twice as much. Anything that makes a nursing Mom less stressed is A+ in my book.
