My breastfeeding fashion began when I was pregnant. I made the right decision to give the best source of nutrients for my baby that is breast milk. Thus, I attended seminars on breastfeeding. I learned a lot.
I attended first, the “Breast Feeding club baby shower” at Medela house. I had an overview on bf. and I got to see products. I love the most is the nursing cloths by Sweetpea nursing wear. I used it while I was pregnant. Sweetpea nursing dress cost at PhP750 each and nursing top at PhP550 plus printed top cover at PhP550. But I got this chiffon top for only 200 at SM hypermarket and covered my bump. This is the start of my BFF: breast feeding fashion.
Inspired by Sweetpea nursingwear I created my own nursing clothes just to save a little bit. I bought 2 spaghetti strap tops at 50 pesos each and chiffon top cover at 180 pesos. I cut one spaghetti strap just below the boobs, for me about 5 inches from neckline. Then I put on the other spaghetti strap then draw a vertical straight line along the nipple. About 1-2 inches on top and below the nipple then cut it. Then I put the shortened spaghetti strap on top of the spaghetti strap with nipple holes to sew them together. I then buy chiffon cover tops for only 180 at the Tiange. I wear my cover. I don’t cover baby when feeding coz he doesn’t like it. The chiffon cover is also my cover when pumping.
I plan to nurse until 2 years and beyond so I don’t mind cutting my spaghetti straps and other tops I find that can be converted into nursing tops.
I am more fashionable and sexier (with fuller boobs & hips). My body is going back to pre-pregnancy weight though I plan to keep some pounds and maintain the 51 to 53 kilos weight. I will post more pictures of my BFF. or check our the FB page of Sweetpea nursingwear.
