As your pregnancy journey starts already so you are full of joy and happiness and thinking about the upcoming baby. On the other hand, you are experiencing some problems that you never faced before. One of them is breast tenderness. Actually, during pregnancy, your breast size will change a bit. The changing starts from 4week to 6 weeks and it last after the baby born.
As you already know that during pregnancy a maternity bra will be your best solution. But you also heard that nursing bra is helpful and a must use bra during your pregnancy period.
Now, you may ask when to buy nursing bra during pregnancy and why should I use it? Let’s see when to pick a nursing bra and why should you need it!
What is a nursing bra?
A nursing bra is designed to make the breastfeeding experience simple and suitable for a new mother without removing the bra. Isn’t it cool? You don’t have to remove the bra for feeding your child.
Why one needs a nursing bra?
The first and foremost reason I already said you in the last paragraph, for comfortable breastfeeding experience.
The second reason is the nursing bra is comfortable and soft also most of the nursing bras have no underwire. Bras that are underwire often blockages in the milk ducts. As regular bras have underwire so it is wise to use a nursing bra.
But some women want comfort and underwire both in a nursing bra. You will find this option too if you need. But for better and healthy experience you better go with the non-wired nursing bra.
Third as your breast can grow larger even after your infant born so if you use a regular bra you may have to purchase new bra often. A nursing bra designed to contain your breast even if your breast grows larger. Also, nursing bras have different hook eyes in the back band to adjust the size of your bra.
When to purchase a Nursing Bra?
As nursing bra actually designed for comfortable breastfeeding so it is suitable for post pregnancy period. According to many moms, you can pick the best nursing bra after 32weeks of pregnancy. But my suggestion is to pick your nursing bra after 37week. As your breast can grow more so it is wise to pick your nursing bra at the last moment of your pregnancy. Don’t purchase your nursing bra too early as your breast will grow bigger even after your baby is born.
Things to Consider While Buying a Nursing Bra
Well, you have to consider some facts while buying a nursing bra. First of all, you have to consider the size, and then check the materials, check whether it is non- wired or not, check the flexibility and so on.
That all I can say you about the nursing bras. Those bras are made to provide comfy to new moms and reduce their irritation.
