Mom Style: Nursing Friendly Dresses

I'm currently exclusively breastfeeding which means strategically picking out clothes that would work for both me and my baby. With that said I don't want to compromise on my style...Plus it's finally warm out which means cute spring/summer dresses. So I've been trying out different styles that are nursing friendly. Here's a mix of nursing dresses and nursing friendly dresses.

NURSING DRESSES:

Jacket: c/o POOF | Dress: Hello Miz Maternity | Sneakers: H&M | Bag: Pottery Barn Kids | Sunglasses: Forever2

I had bought this Hello Miz Maternity dress while still pregnant but never got to wear it while pregnant, but have worn it a couple of times now post. I love that it has the lift up access which makes it easy and quick for nursing. I do however wish I sized up, I don't think my pregnant belly would have even fit into this dress. I bought a small and should have went with a medium. Advice, if you go with this dress size up!

Dress: c/o Pink Blush | Sandals and Sunglasses: Forever21

Pinkblush hands down has been my favorite maternity shop. Cute, affordable, and functional...what more could you want from a boutique? I had gotten this dress with the summer in mind, I mean hello Hawaiian print! The cross function of this dress works perfectly for nursing the little one, plus it looks good pregnant and post pregnancy.

NURSING FRIENDLY STYLES:

I have spent a lot of time online window shopping while nursing Austin since I was excited about buying some new post pregnancy clothing. Except I had to keep in mind my new mom duties, which includes nursing friendly pieces. So with that in mind I looked for dresses that are button downed, criss crossed front, or looser top.

Dress: Lulus | Bralette: Urban Outfitters | Sandals: Old Navy | Sunglasses: Forever21

This Lulu's dress is probably my summer favorite. I love the boho loose feel to it. It's one of those throw on and go dresses. I also love that it looks good with a bralette, which is important as since you know milk leaks.

Button down front dresses are also another convenient style for nursing. Allowing easy access to the boobies without any hassle. Luckily, I already had a couple of these style dresses in my wardrobe which included this denim shirt dress from Madewell (similar styles herehere, and here). Shirt dresses are also perfect for going back to work, since another thing to consider if pumping (if you continue to breastfeed).
