    I breastfed my first child. I am now pregnant with my second baby and plan to breastfeed. I was just making my list of things that I will need to buy for this baby. I will have to get more nursing bras and clothes. I want to get some nice nursing tops. I looked online and there are a ton of very cute maternity clothes, but I am not finding much for nursing clothes that are cute. Any suggestions?

    My favorite place for nursing clothes is www.mothersboutique.com . She has a fantastic selection of clothes, from tops to pajamas to bras. She's also great at helping you find the right size bra and can do a virtual bra fitting. This is mom-owned business. I'm really lucky because she has a store about 30mins from where I live near Pittsburgh. She does most of her sales online. I believe that she is having some sales for Mother's day! I am hinting at a few more tops for my Mother's day.

    I've honestly found nursing tops overly complicated and depending on how they are made, prone to stretching out so they don't hang right. I use mostly t-shirts (or other shirts I can lift up) or button front shirts. Of course I don't work outside the home so pumping isn't an issue. For my husband's modesty I have a nursing cover up. Some of those undershirt tanks or belly wraps would be nice so that your back/belly aren't exposed while nursing, but I'm not bothered.

    Of the two nursing tops I got from MM, one of them I still don't really understand how it 'works' to minimize exposure. The other the neck has stretched oddly because the idea is to push the neck aside.

    I will miss being able to wear sundresses this summer since there just isn't an easy way to make a nursing sundress. i should look into some sort of wrap dresses.

    I have used nursing bras during the day under regular clothes this winter. I just layered bra, shirt, sweater coat or a cardigan set. Now that weather is warmer I'm running into belly peekaboo issues. I have two nursing tanks that I wear at night. I think I'm going to have to get more of those and layer bra, tank, shirt. My DD was born in Oct. So I have atleast six more months I plan to nurse. I agree w pp that most nursing shirts are more trouble than they are worth.

    Update: I got the nursing tanks at Target, just 16.99. They are great. THey are nice and long so I am able to tuck them in and leave my shirt out. They fit snug and some styles have a lace embellishment. I wear a nursing bra too, but I am a EE so most of you will be able to wear just the tank.
