Nursing may be the most natural thing a woman can do (aside from give birth), but that doesn’t mean it’s without the help of a few friends. For ultimate success in your breastfeeding journey, enlist these hardworking, practical pieces to arm you with confidence and determination.
Comfort: New moms know maternity leave isn’t all cat naps and cuddles, but because your clothing may have you looking like a professional lounger, why not spice it up a bit with an option that prizes form as well as function? The Luxe Body Lace Wireless Nursing Bra isn’t only comfortable, but it’s one-hand nursing clasps and easy-fold cups make it too good to be true. You can appreciate feeling attractive without sacrificing convenience.
Support: What you wear underneath clothing matters just as much as the clothing itself, and when it comes to bras, you may need a well-made, underwire option with plenty of hold. The Molded Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra will be your go-to while navigating the day-to-day with your hungry newborn and is perfect for on-the-spot feedings and protecting against leaks.

Performance: A nursing cami is a non-negotiable for your postpartum closet. (Moms actually start using them as soon as they can change out of their labor gown.) It alleviates the need to get undressed or fumble with everyday clothing. The Leading Lady Nursing Cami comes with a built-in nursing bra for extra adaptability, and the silhouette design includes adjustable no-slip straps that keep you feeling relaxed and put together. It’s a basic that can go underneath anything and can be worn with jeans, leggings, athleticwear and everything in-between. Get one in every color!
Versatility: While most moms prefer the comfort and security of home, the reality is you will probably have to breastfeed in public. (Baby’s gotta eat, right?) If you’re unsure or a little nervous at the thought, don’t stress! The Leading Lady Nursing Cover boasts privacy, comfort and discretion all-in-one! What’s more is it can also be used as a scarf, thanks to lightweight, breathable fabric that helps you to stay covered while keeping baby cool. It’s an accessory that can be tossed or folded up to go with you anywhere at any time, so it’s safe to say that you’ll never want to leave the house without it.
