Putting your winter wardrobe together can be lots of fun. You get to shop for scarves and hats, beautiful sweaters and jackets, and tops to layer underneath. But if you are a mom who is breastfeeding, you’ll probably be a little more conscious of your choices. It can be hard to wear layers and sweaters that are hard to maneuver while you’re feeding your baby, so you need winter breastfeeding clothes that will be warm, stylish, and easy to nurse in.

Whether you are at home or out in public, heavy and bulky layers can make it a real pain to breastfeed. They can lead to you fumbling around with your clothes while you juggle a hungry, fussy baby. Plus, how are you supposed to stay warm this winter if all you can find is a nursing tank? Luckily, more designers are making winter clothes with nursing moms in mind and feature discreet panels, buttons, and zippers in their clothes to make breastfeeding a breeze.

There are some winter staples that no wardrobe can do with out. Some of these pieces are easy to lounge in, and others are great for an evening out. Either way, these breastfeeding clothes are sure to keep you cozy and trendy all winter long.
