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 weekend we have faced a new dilemma.. what to wear during a heatwave that is breastfeeding friendly and minimises two sweaty bodies making each other even more sweaty 😂😂.
I will save you all from witnessing what I’ve been wearing this past weekend, so here is an outfit from earlier on in the week, before the heatwave kicked in.
A light cotton t-shirt from Zara, with some New look jeggings, with some comfy sandals from Asos 😍.
All of the summer clothes sales have started but I am trying my very best to avoid looking online as it really is time I did something about my baby weight! From tomorrow I am actually starting a healthy eating plan! Wish me luck..
So this week we had yet another wedding meaning another ‘formal’ feeding friendly outfit to find. As I didn’t have time to get to the shops, I had massss of online deliveries arrive all week, and finally caught a moment when both babies were napping to try it ALL on and settled for this lovely outfit..
Both the top and skirt are from Asos and both items are currently half price.. I’ve added the links below..
Embellished white top
I felt great and the outfit was perfect for feeding in which was ideal as my little monkey wouldn’t drink the expressed milk I had taken for him!
In the search for some new breastfeeding friendly clothes, I stumbled upon the website Shein. Stylish, on trend clothes and very reasonably priced.
I’m still waiting for the haul of things to arrive (the two downsides I’ve found so far is, your items come sporadically and take a very long time to arrive). But so far I am loving this T shirt.
I wore it with high waisted jeans and a vest underneath so I could feed by pulling the tshirt over and the vest down. Oh and my Adidas sandals. And I felt great wearing it 🙂
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!
