Breastfeeding can be a bit tricky to get the hang of, especially if it’s your first baby. Both you and your little one should feel relaxed when you’re feeding – that’s where a well-fitted nursing bra comes in. To find out more about getting ready to breastfeed and to settle any niggling concerns, take a look at our guide to breastfeeding.
When it comes to finding the best nursing bra for your body, you need one that’s comfortable around the back and offers plenty of support. Check that you can open and close the drop down cups with one hand and that it has enough room to allow you to grow comfortably when your milk comes in. The good news is that you can get fitted at the 36-week mark, so this is one thing you can get a head start on!
We recommend that you have more than one breastfeeding bra – one on your body, one in the wash and one in the drawer. This is where multipacks come in very handy. All of our nursing bras, including those in our range for fuller busts, are non-wired for maximum comfort. Look out for a feeding bra that has retainer straps to keep it in place and is machine washable to make your life that little bit simpler.
Mothercare nursing bras pair perfectly with our range of maternity T-shirts, tunics and vests. Our nursing tops are both comfy and stylish, great for lounging about bonding at home and for when you’re ready to take your little one out and about for discreet feeding on the go.
