Nursing requires a small adjustment in a woman's wardrobe. Out with the dresses, the turtlenecks, and the form-fitting tees! They'll one day be wearable again, but for the nursing months (or years), comfort and easy access are crucial.
The best "top" choices for nursing moms are...
* Soft, stretchable shirts
* Button up shirts with a cami underneath
* Shirts and camisoles specifically designed for nursing
Glamourmom® offers products that fall into the last two categories...
Incidentally, I slept in my Nursing Bra Top with Lace Trim from Glamourmom® last night, which I do fairly regularly. The "discreet clasps" allow for easy one-handed access and the Glamourmom webshop offers tanks with various lengths so you can ensure that your postpartum belly is adequately covered. That's probably the best feature of all - I remember feeling so uncomfortable pulling up my shirt in the early months of nursing and worrying that viewers might catch a glimpse of my tummy (which I really didn't want to show off after giving birth).
My friend Erica loves her Nursing Bra Long Tank from Glamourmom® tank as well, "Although I haven't tried many nursing shirts, this is my favorite. Some of the other companies say their shirts are easy to work with one hand, but they are either liars or have seventeen fingers on one hand. The Glamourmom® tank is actually easy to unhook with one hand, so my other hand can be holding the baby."
She went on to explain why she loves the tank so much, "Because it unhooks from the top, there's no pulling up and bunching of shirts, no embarrassing tummy or back exposure, and you can see exactly what you're doing. The shirt is comfortable for daywear or sleeping, whichever you prefer to use it for. The construction is also really good - it's one of the best-made tanks I've ever worn. "Leakers" like me will appreciate that the tank is thick enough for wearing nursing pads without feeling like the entire general public can not only see you're wearing them, but can tell you what brand. As for the 'cuteness factor', it's long enough for layering but also cute enough to be worn alone. I don't think it looks like nursing wear, which is a plus, too."
Glamourmom® offers tanks (their "signature" item), long-sleeve tops, slip dresses (which look like a great choice for the first few weeks after childbirth), and tankini swimsuits - all for nursing moms.
WIN IT! One mama will win the Glamourmom® logo top of her choice. To enter, simply leave a comment and your e-mail address prior to Sunday, March 2nd, at midnight. The winner will be announced and contacted on Monday, March 3. * Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

These look so much more fashionable than the one I have.
I'm nursing my baby and I love to sleep in tanks. This would be great!
I have been looking at these for some time - Since I am going to try b-feeding again maybe if I have better clothing that is actually made for it I will be more successful!
Love it! Would love to own it!
