I have mentioned before that dressing for breastfeeding has proven to be far more challenging than dressing for pregnancy. During my pregnancy, I could wear most of my clothes for the majority of the 9 months. Thankfully loose flowing tops and leggings are in style! I bought a few cute pieces and my sister gave me an entire bag full of her maternity clothes, I was set! I assumed that I’d be wearing whatever I wanted once Luna arrived, but I had no idea how difficult it is to nurse in your regular clothes.
I have found it easiest to wear button-up tops or low-cut tanks, but I quickly got bored with that small section of my wardrobe and start searching for a solution. What I found was Peek-a-boo. Peek-a-boo is a clothing line for both pregnancy and nursing. Just from looking at their website I found that most of their pieces are actually cute and do not look so obviously like nursing tops (like most do on Zulily).
Then, I actually got to try a top from Peek-a-boo! I chose the classic top because it’s simple enough to wear for various occasions. It can be dressed-up or down, worn with leggings or jeans, boots or heels, to the park or to dinner, etc. I’ve worn it a few times already and it is so so practical! Peek-a-boo’s tops and dresses comes with a very well blended slit that easily lifts up for easy nursing. It’s stylish, comfortable and discreet…exactly what I needed.
It is really inconvenient to keep myself covered while nursing. It’s hot for me and the baby and I can’t see what’s going on under there. This top seems to fix that problem. I still feel covered, comfortable and so does Luna. I only wish I knew of Peek-a-boo while I was pregnant so I could get even more use, but I guess I can always use it for the next one…if there is another.
The only downside to the “classic top” is that it is very fitting. So, if you have a bit of a bump left after having your baby (and you do), be prepared.
I have really good news for you too! Peek-a-boo is offering a discount code for Positively Panicked readers. You will get 15% off regular priced items and free shipping when you use the code POSITIVELY15. Remember, it’s great for maternity and nursing.
BIG thanks to Peek-a-boo, you guys are awesome!
