For many people, the holidays are a time to gather with friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and acquaintances for plenty of parties. But how is a new mom supposed to dress for these gatherings and still care for the baby? You need holiday tops you can breastfeed in to restore your faith in fashion for new moms, and luckily, there are plenty. Seriously: some of these tops are so cute, people who don't even need easy boob access will want to wear them.
Granted, this may be a more low-key holiday celebration, especially if you just had the baby. Hopefully no one is expecting you to host a formal dinner for a dozen people or anything. But even with all the new-baby adjustments, it's so healthy to socialize during the holiday season. Participating in holiday traditions has been shown to increase a person's sense of happiness and wellbeing, according to the International Journal of Social Psychology. Meeting up with old friends and family is a great way to socialize, boost your mood, and of course introduce the new baby to everyone.
One thing you won't have to stress about is what to wear to these gatherings. New mom nursing fashion is on point. With details like lace, layers, and fabric with a metallic sheen, these nursing tops are modern and stylish. Plus, they all make use of clever layering or strategically placed panels to make your breastfeeding needs easier. Available in a variety of styles and hues, from cranberry red to brilliant blue, there's a holiday top for everyone's style.
If you need a sleek, simple layering top (or you live in a climate with warm winters), this tunic fits the bill. The sleeveless nursing tunic is pretty on its own, and it would look lovely when paired with a chunky knit scarf and warm jacket. It comes in a variety of colors if black isn't your jam.
Comfort, style, and the ability to give your baby dinner all come together in this top. The ruched empire nursing top would pair perfectly with jeans, slacks, or a long skirt. Basically, it's everything a nursing mom could want for holiday fashion.
