Why you should buy nursing bras before baby arrives

I’m often told by pregnant women that they won’t buy their nursing bras before baby is born as they’d prefer to wait until their milk “comes in”. Really? They are clearly first time round Mums, and have no idea what they’ll feel like 1) after baby has been born, maybe after a long labour;  2) where they’ll be, and who’ll be able to help them with baby, when their milk “comes in”; and 3) where they’ll be able to get to easily to shop for nursing bras in their size with baby being 3-6 days old. OK, so maybe I’m biased, but wouldn’t you prefer to do all your shopping before baby arrives, so that you can spend your time with your precious new baby, your family and your friends? If you want to have a bra fitting, then you can do this at about 35-36 weeks pregnant, and the bra fitter, like those in our Bra Lady team, will be fully trained in how to fit nursing bras to your body. They will allow for space in the bra cup for when your milk “comes in”. So, if you really think about it, who will be around in that first week to help you get used to changing nappies & dressing baby, whilst you ensure you’re feeding yourself properly? You may be lucky and have lots of friends and family around. Some of you may not. If you are lucky, who’ll hold the baby whilst you go off for a bra fitting? Will the shop have the right style and size to fit you? You know that all...
