boob approved shirts

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM
Now that I'm breastfeeding like 10+ times a day, I realized real quick what shirts work and don't work when your baby is screaming and you need to pop your boob out in seconds. That means 95% of the shirts in my closet won't work. When I'm lounging around the house I wear nursing tanks but if I'm actually going to leave the house, which trust me isn't often these days, I kind of want to look a little more dressed up. So now when I look for shirts I have to make sure they're "boob approved." And they also need to be priced well because there's nothing worse than wearing an expensive shirt and looking down and seeing a big old breast milk stain on it. 

Madewell Flannel Ex-Boyfriend Shirt in Ontario Plaid
Before I finish breastfeeding I think I'll own 30 button down shirts. They're just so easy and they work with leggings or jeans. I know flannel is kind of 90's grunge but I've always really liked it. 

Old Navy Crochet Lace Trapeze Blouse
This shirt doesn't button down but it is over sized so I think it would work great for breastfeeding. Love the boho look it has. Old Navy has been killing it lately with cute clothes!

J. Crew Factory Crepe Henley Tunic
You can't ever have too many basic button down blouses. These are great for easy access when breastfeeding.

Pleione Mixed Media V-Neck Tunic
I love these blouses, they're less than $60 and best of all they're hand wash which to me means wash in the delicate cycle. I've got no time to get shirts dry cleaned so if I can find a shirt that I can wash at home, I'm sold. These shirts come in tons of different colors and I've even spotted this brand at TJ Maxx/Marshall's.

Loft Collarless Utility Blouse
Love the colors in this blouse, it's perfect for fall. It's a great blouse to wear casual with leggings or dressed up for a night out with jeans.

Madewell Draped Popover Shirt
Cute plaid shirt that would work great for breastfeeding. I like that the cross over look is a nice change from your typical button down shirt.

  1. I feel like that tunic is one you would have worn regardless - so that's good! I can imagine the panic that sets in when you need to feed the little guy!! Great options to make everyone's life easier! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I love flannel shirts, I feel like they'd be perfect for breast feeding too because they're so soft (in case of sore nipples, right?) You need yourself a rails flannel if you don't already own one-they're my fav and you can find them on sale at saks off 5th!
