Well, Aloha all you chic Mamas! It’s Maryam here again from Milk-Friendly. If you follow along on my blog, you know that my aim is to help moms keep their style mojo throughout the days of breastfeeding and beyond. I know firsthand that it’s not as easy as you would think. It wasn’t until my second pregnancy that I finally started to figure out the ropes and prepare my wardrobe before the baby was born.
Easy access is key, and one of the quickest ways to breastfeed a hungry newborn is to be wearing what I call an “Easy-Open” top- these are anything with buttons, a zipper or in a wrap style. My favorite is a button down top, and with the shirtdress being a chic, current fashion trend, us Mamas are in luck.
During our maternity days, these dresses can also double as tunic/tops as they just make it over our growing belly. You can pair it with anything from skinny jeans, leggings or some maternity shorts like the ones I grabbed at Target. Just undo a few of the bottom buttons, make a knot and you’re good to go.
Once baby comes, you can continue wearing it as a top, or wear it as a dress on it’s own, or with some tights or leggings. A super simple way to make your maternity purchases count as they work double duty in your days to come with your special little bundle.
