Pregnancy is an exciting time for a woman, but of course it also means some changes and inconveniences as well. Fortunately there are many products on the market today that are meant to make this time easier for her, and nursing bras are just one such product. In times past women needed to struggle with their undergarments when it was time to nurse, and this often means discomfort and even embarrassment if she should leak between nursing.
Choosing and wearing nursing clothings during the last few weeks of pregnancy and then after the baby is born means added support for the breasts as well as a convenient way to nurse. Most nursing bras also have lining on the inside that protect a woman from embarrassment if she should leak; these linings will absorb the liquid and protect her clothes.Before choosing a nursing bra or nursing pajamas consider a few quick tips that will help you find the right size and style for you.
Know your options:
Some have the entire front of the cup unhook from the strap and others unwrap from side to side. You need to wear the right style according to the shirt or blouse you wear over it. A button-down shirt might be better with a bra that opens side to side whereas other shirts that you pull up or down may work better with nursing bras that unhook from the strap. This may seem like a small thing, but having the right style can make nursing less uncomfortable for the new mother. You may not opt for bras with underwire for everyday wear, but when you choose nursing bras you may want to think about this added support.
Remember that your breasts will be larger and this means heavier when you're pregnant and right after, and that added support may help your entire upper body. It's not unusual for women who wear nursing bras and other bras that are not underwire or that don't have this added support to notice back and shoulder pain during this time, because of the increased weight to their front.
