Save Money On Maternity Tops That Double As Nursing Tops!

We live in an age where all of us are always thinking of clever ways to save money and make our dollar go further. Well, if I knew now what I knew back when I was pregnant, I would have saved myself a whole lot of money!

 

The perfect maternity and nursing top for just $43.

This top makes breastfeeding in public so much easier!

And it makes breastfeeding in public so much easier!

Breastfeeding tops such as this black and white striped one above have plenty of stretch in them and are cut so as to allow your bump to expand for the full nine months and then return to their original slim shape when you later want to breastfeed. They’re ideal for layering during the cooler months should you live in the south, in areas such as Sydney or Melbourne and are also perfect for the mild Queensland winter.

The clever overlap under the bust allows you to single handedly quickly access your nursing bra clip. Otherwise, the top just looks like a regular long sleeve T-shirt. Our long sleeved nursing tops are just $43 and we’ve noticed similar ones on sale on other maternity websites for $80! Ours are made from a very high quality cotton/elastane that looks good after many washes. We also have a few of these tops in other colours from previous seasons available on our discount page, starting at $34.50.

One quick tip which you MUST consider is that you will probably not want to wear maternity tops that have ruching on the sides even if they have nursing access. Mums tell me the last thing they want is to look pregnant when they no longer are!

My favourite amongst our winter maternity and breastfeeding tops is the lace insert style which has the same easy nursing access. Team with some skinny black jeans and you’re all set for dinner out with the family! A night off cooking is always something every mum looks forward to!

Bring On Autumn! Winter Maternity Clothes To Keep You Warm & Stylish

Geo Spot Nursing WearSeamless Black Maternity Leggings
Modern sportswear meets functional nursing wear. Now $71.

There’s definitely been a morning chill in the air of late. I have to say I’m loving it, especially after the belated summer we had in March which made it so difficult to sleep at night. I certainly remembered how much hotter I felt when I was pregnant and I’m betting that most pregnant mums out there are glad that there’s been a change in the weather. We noticed how the sportswear trend has really taken off so we wanted to bring in a sweater that would be perfect for the gym, casual wear AND breastfeeding (and pregnancy too). We think we cracked it with the geo spot sweater selling like hotcakes. I’m guessing this is going to sell out even before we hit winter this year! It’s just so ideal for nursing your baby when it gets cooler – you don’t have to freeze by lifting up your top. All you have to do is pop open a few press studs to get discreet and easy nursing access. We also have a new brand of maternity leggings to go with our fabulous nursing sweater. Now leggings are one item you definitely can’t live without, pregnant or not! These ones are such a great fit and are soooo comfortable, you’re guaranteed to want to live in them. Being seamfree, they don’t have any itchy seams around your bump which is perfect for those with sensitive skin and/or mums wanting a perfectly smooth contour. (There are inside leg seams down the legs though.) Also, incredibly affordable at $30.50 including free shipping. Jojo Maman Bebe Maternity Pyjamas For cold winter nights when you have do those middle of the night feeds, there is nothing like a warm pair of pyjamas to give you comfort. We love the cute floral print of these maternity pyjama pants ($45) and the comfy belly band. The maternity pyjama top ($43) with nursing access is comfortable and loose fitting (if you prefer a more fitted nursing top, we have our lace-insert nursing top instead). It makes breastfeeding when you’re half asleep so much easier as it simply involves lifting up the top layer. Mmm… snuggling up in these warm winter pieces makes the colder weather something to look forward to.
