Becoming a mother has affected my life in so many ways. One that I didn’t really consider before becoming a breastfeeding mom was how it would affect how I dress. Everyday, I make sure the tops I wear are breastfeeding friendly. Now that I will be returning to work, I have to consider breastmilk pumping friendly clothes. Here are my tips for stylish working moms who like me, have to pump at work.
- Wear separates. It is much easier to pump if you only have to take off a top, rather than a one piece dress.
- If you are choosing to wear a one piece dress, consider a wrap dress or a button down shirt dress.
- For tops, consider button down shirts, cardigans and blazers over nursing tops, and lightweight tops that are easy to take off and put on.
- Keep an extra neutral top at work, just in case you leak through your clothes.
Here are some great options for pumping working moms out there:
