WHY WE THINK YOU NEED NURSING WEAR
When you become a mother, your whole world takes a drastic change. Suddenly, your world starts revolving around this tiny human that you are still learning to love and comprehend. A completely new way of living that you never knew of wash you over and over each day. Breastmilk is one of the best thing that a mother can provide for her child. But those who have been there knows it comes with a heavy price tag. Apart from the loss of sleep, the journey is also one filled with heartaches and real pains.
We don't always have the means to pull ourselves out of the situation that we subscribed to, but there are always ways to make things better and easier. Which brings us to the topic of why we think that nursing wear is a good investment for breastfeeding mothers.
#1- NURSING WEAR HELPS YOU TO WHIP OUT YOUR BREAST PROMPTLY
If you ever have a baby who shrieks for the boobs without any foretold warning, you would understand why some mothers can't afford the time to perform some transform-regular-clothes-to-nursing-clothes trick or comb through the mall for a private sanctuary every time they need to feed the baby. Now, nursing wear is created(by whoever that was, God bless her soul) for this exact purpose.
#2- LOOKING GOOD MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD
You don't necessary need to compromise on your looks when you become a mother. Choosing a comfortable nursing wear that fits your style can make you look and feel beautiful! And as mothers, we really need all that positive vibes. After all, a happy mother really does have a greater capacity to care for her child's needs. Feeling good is the way to preserve your sanity and possibly prolonging your breastfeeding journey.
#3- YOUR BABY HATES THE NURSING COVER
Most, if not all, of the nursing covers available in the market features a cloth that completely covers(or at least half the body) the baby. Sure, they can be made of very breathable materials, bamboo fibre and all. But, we have to admit that it is still going to be pretty stuffy for the child in a humid climate like Singapore. And if the baby is used to nursing at home without a cover, you would want to bet that he/she will hate the nursing cover when you are outdoors. Our nursing wear are designed in such a way where nursing mothers can feed discreetly without a cover.
#4- A GOOD NURSING WEAR LASTS YOU A LONG TIME
Some people reckon that nursing wear are just normal clothings that has slits and secret holes that you can only wear during nursing days. It is actually more than you think! Most of the nursing wear in the market now are dual functional, meaning they can also fit your growing pregnant belly. There are casual ones and dressy ones to choose from, you will never feel underdressed for any occasion!
#5- ADVOCATING FOR NORMALIZING BREASTFEEDING
We can't run away from our conservative culture that is deeply seeded in our asian roots. Many women are still not comfortable to bare too much of their skin, much less their breasts, in public. We can't be too ambitious to think that we can revolutionalize public breastfeeding over night, however, I believe we can get there bit by bit and breastfeeding in nursing wear is the stepping stone.
