  1. Thank you so much! My baby turned 6 weeks old today and I have barely left the house because I don’t know what to wear! This is very helpful.

    1. April, congratulations on your little one! I’m glad you found the tips helpful. I just picked up a few new, cheap items and it feels SO GOOD to dress like a normal person again. With a real bra that actually keeps the girls higher than my waistline.

      My girl just turned 6 weeks on Saturday, so our little ones are awfully close in age! How are you doing? We’ve been trucking along pretty good but it looks like we didn’t happen to luck out with one of those babies who sleeps easily. Ah, well!

  2. I love this post. The nursing scarf at the bottom is the kicker. I need that! What a smart idea.

  3. Ooh, I hadn’t seen this one! Lots of great ideas and relatable quips. :) Pinned!

    Those infinity nursing scarves are super easy to make if you know how to use a ruler, scissors, a sewing machine, and can sew a straight line. search a pattern on pinterest. I made like 8 of them – haha!

    Thank you, this was very helpful. What about a belly band? Did you wear one and do you have recommendations? Thank you !

  6. THANK YOU! Finally a post that does not assume I am 90lbs and feeling fabulous post baby! You gave some awesome ideas and I greatly appreciate it!

  7. I like that you suggested high-waisted leggings that fit perfectly on you. I will suggest this to my sister who has been having problems with wearing jeans now that she has a belly to think about after giving birth. She just gave birth two months ago, and she wanted to wear pants already since it’s the most comfortable outfit for her. This will help her find clothing tomorrow that will be of comfort.

  8. I like to layer a camisole tank top with the stretchy elastic shoulder straps under a t shirt for nursing in public. You can pull the t shirt up and your whole back and abdomen are still covered by the camisole. Then just pull down the top of the camisole to get one boob out. Paired with a small blanket or nursing scarf you can prevent accidental boob flashing.

  9. This was great:) thank you! I’m two weeks postpartum c-section. 4th baby but still trying to get tips on this whole weird postpartum period where I’m waiting to fit in my clothes again!!
