Nursing Niceties

with 0 Comments

In a frantic effort to shop/register and prepare for this little Olympic bound kicker who is taking up prime real estate in my belly, I completely forgot that there are a few crucial items that I am going to need for myself.

After reading an informative blog post on how to pack your hospital bag, I realized that in addition to a going home outfit/essentials for the baby, I'm also going to need a robe, nursing bras and nightgown for myself. *Need is a relative term. I could, of course, get away with wearing the bleak hospital gown they'll provide me with for the entire duration of my hospital visit, but this stylish mama-to-be wants to make a good first impression on her new little man, potential guests, and I really don't want my tushy hanging out for all of the maternity ward to see.

I soon realized that similar to stylish maternity apparel, stylish maternity intimates can be equally expensive. A few hours of cyber surfing later, I found the perfect splurge and steal.


Belabumbum makes gorgeous maternity bras, undies, nighties and intimates that make you feel pretty, both pre and postnatal. I picked up a nursing nightgown and matching bra and panty combo because they were too lovely to resist, but rather than splurge on another set, I hit Targay's Gilligan O'Malley collection for an almost identical black polka dotted nursing bra and matching hipster panties for less than a third of the price.

Next stop, diaper bag.
