After I had my first baby, I vividly remember shuffling around the hospital room, struggling to sit down, my clothes getting in the way, and not wanting to expose my stomach in order to breastfeed. All of these issues meant I didn't realize there were pieces of clothing every woman needs postpartum to feel comfortable because our bodies go through a lot. If you've experienced life after birth, you can probably attest to how much of a burden postpartum clothes can be if they're not tailored to a recovering or breastfeeding body.
Luckily, as time went on, I learned what worked best for me to function efficiently, thanks in part due to my efforts of reaching out to other moms to see what their best clothing go-tos were soon after giving birth. The second time around, since I was better informed about the types of clothing I should add to my wardrobe, functioning as a new mom was much more comfortable with the right fits.
If you're expecting a new baby and wondering what you can do to make life a little simpler after birth, I would highly suggest addressing your postpartum wardrobe to make sure you're totally prepared. It may seem excessive at first, but you will thank us for this later. Take a look through some of the pieces below and consider adding them to your closet if you haven't already.
