Okay so I’ve committed a million times to being better at updating my outfit posts but I’ve been suffering from a little bit of an adversion to my blog recently. After a long day and another sleepless night (the baba is still a terrible sleeper at 8 months the old), the last thing I’ve wanted to do when I get a spare half an hour is to update my blog..
BUT, I have a few exciting things lined up and I have promised myself to make more effort. And winter is coming and I’m a teeny bit excited to hide away in oversized jumpers and big coats!
So this is probably my last autumn outfit post, and yes I am STILL wearing my furry slides, but as November has arrived so has the cold, so this will probably be the last time they come out for a while..
I’m head to toe in Asos and you can find me on their #asseenonme homepage and shop the look here, and yes I was just a little bit over excited that asos feature little old me on their homepage :).
This year we gave up on Halloween costumes as I literally am finding no energy for anything right now. Buttt the boys are now getting better (it’s been back to back viruses for weeks), so maybe, just maybe we will start to get some more sleep soon and I can feel a little like me again!
So I’ve been sooo bad at posting outfit posts, mainly for a few reasons. Firstly I’ve been living in leggings, t shirts & pj’s. Secondly, as I’ve mentioned so many times, breastfeeding makes me SUPER DUPER hungry, so I just feel fat and frumpy! And thirdly 6 months into maternity leave the ££ has drastically reduced and if feel bad spending on clothes when the husband is paying.
But anyway, here are a few to make up for the extreme lack of posts. And all are breastfeeding friendly 👍🏼

Any breastfeeding mum will have come across this struggle at some point in their nursing life. You wake up to do the night feed and your pjs annoy your baba by flapping in their face and they get further annoyed by you taking so long fumbling around in the dark to lift your pjs up. You are then sat up half naked for the good part of an hour, or you fall asleep nursing and spend the rest of the night freezing with half your top up and half down.
Well ladies, I have discovered something which will revolutionise nighttime nursing for you.. the breastfeeding sleepshirt by Daisypops.
The sleepshirt has sleeves to keep your shoulders warm (one of the reasons I hate wearing vests to bed is I spend most of the night with my shoulders out of the duvet..), and a simple split across the front of the top so you can pop your baby on your chest and feed away without having to fumble around in the dark and without freezing to death.
It’s also great for loungewear when your in the house (especially in the postpartum early days) but want to be in something comfy that is still practical to feed in. In fact I love mine so much I have been using it out of the house as it’s just so easy to feed in! It has been a godsend when leaving the house in this mini heatwave!
The material is lovely and soft and it comes in 7 lovely colours and the lovely people at daisypops now ship to the UK! I was super impressed that my top arrived in less than a week. The shirt costs approx £27 and is worth every penny as even though it’s summer here in the U.K. the weather cannot make its mind up so some nights are freezing and some nights boiling hot and I hate being cold at night.
The pro’s for me are fuss free feeding, no more cold shoulders at night, and super discrete feeding if you wear it out the house. I’m not usually a fan of nursing clothes as they don’t usually look good, but this sleepshirt has been really well made with lovely quality cotton and I felt great wearing it and it’s going to come in handy so much during winter night feeds.
Check out the different colours available here and thank me later 🙂
Lovely Rebecca at Daisypops sent me this sleepshirt to try out and review but all views are my own.
So this week we attended a wedding and I had the dilemma of what to wear that I could also easily breastfeed in (and hide my mum tum in 😂).
I found this lovely wrap dress from River Island.. as it was wrapped at the front it was easy to feed in without having to take the dres off! Perfect!
Apologies for the poor images, these were taken at the very end of the night after running around with a screaming baby for pretty much the entire wedding!
As the weather has been so unpredictable and cold lately I’ve had to dig out clothes from my autumn/winter wardrobe. Summer hurry up please.
This black jumpsuit from Asos (from the Asos White collection) is perfect for this weather and really really easy to feed in as it has a zip down front. I wore a tshirt underneath for OUOD (one up one down) for even more discrete feeding. Oh and I’m still loving my current favourite mum shoes, my leather converses 😍.
Soo last week I slipped up and didn’t do an outfit post.. blame the two mini men in my life, so hard to catch a break and even harder to get anybody to take a photo for you when you spend the majority of your time with two little people!
But this week I’m back on it.. here is my favourite breastfeeding friendly outfit of the week.. an oversized cropped sweater from Zara, paired with some high wasted jeans by Monki. I’m officially a mum now I’m in high waisted jeans.. they do a great thing by sucking EVERYTHING in, but I’m still not used to the new wider looking me 😂.
By wearing a vest top underneath the crop it was so easy to feed in and so discreet. Wish I had known about this easy way to feed with baby number one! Oh well, you live and you learn. Have a lovely weekend people, let’s keep our fingers crossed for more sun!
I’m loving Zara at the minute, resulting in lots of late night online shopping binges during night feeds but not knowing what will or won’t suite my new postpartum shape means I’ve made multiple trips into town already to return most of it 😂.
One item I did keep was this colourful shirt blouse, which was so easy to feed in. I wore a vest underneath for OUOD and fed discreetly. You could also just undo the buttons. It’s loose so perfect to hide my new mum tum! Also wearing some ‘mum fit’ trousers from zara. So I didn’t look like I was on my way to the office with two babies in tow, I opted for some causal pastel with rose gold detailed leather Converse shoes 😍.
Are any other new mums struggling with their new post pregnancy shape?? I certainly am! Also uber bored of all my old clothes and my old ‘breastfeeding friendly’ pieces. This, coupled with the fact I barely have time to shower and get dressed and look sooo drained from the lack of sleep, is making me feel very ‘Mumsy’ on a day to day basis.
As I’m more experienced with breastfeeding this time (less fumbling involved) I’m more comfortable with OUOD (one up one down) so I’ll be on the hunt for more clothes suitable for this, whilst also sticking to buttoned clothes (but trying to find some more exciting ones 😂). To motivate me to actually make an effort to like half decent every once in a while, I’m going to attempt to upload a breastfeeding friendly outfit of the week.. so here is my first one..
I am head to toe in Zara, and I wore a vest undernead for OUOD 😍
