I found a nursing shirt at my favorite thrift store last week, and for $2.50, I decided it was worth the price. It’s a cute black top with pink trim – I wouldn’t have bought it unless I liked the shirt, and the fact that it’s designed to make breast feeding easier was a bonus. It got me thinking – do I need nursing tops? I doubt I’ll go on a mission to find any, although if I stumble across any other cute ones at my thrift stores, I might get them. It seems that a blanket or nursing poncho makes just about any top into a “nursing top” since I could just cover up with the blanket and pull my shirt up. I suppose the nursing top makes it a little easier, but if I’m out in public, I’m sure I’ll be using the blanket as well. I’m curious about whether other mothers have found nursing-specific clothing to be useful, or just gimmicky. I can see that nursing bras will be a big help, but not so sure about the shirts.
