When to buy nursing bras?
ButterflyBaby1107 posted:
When should a person purchase their nursing bras? Do you get them while pregnant, or wait until after your milk comes in and the swelling has gone down?

I had my first lo 8 months ago and started to b right away. It was very nice to already have some nursing gear.

I started w 2 nursing tanks and two nursing bras (brevada) that were shelf style. I even wore them the last month of pregnancy bc my bras did not fit.

Bc I was a DD before bf and am now a F while bf, the tanks and shelf bras only work for me at home and at night. They just don't have the support. I got regular supportive nursing bras after the first couple of weeks, when the size had settled a little.

Good luck. Its tough at first, but so worth it. I wouldn't change it for the world.
