So it's payday (one of my last before I go onto the pittance that is statutory maternity pay), and I have been browsing for maternity wear for winter that will double as nursing wear for breastfeeding once the baby is born-no point in paying out twice, and will probably never wear maternity wear again afterwards otherwise. (Am 27 weeks pregnant).
Here are my top picks from my fave maternity store, and also a fave of many celeb mummas, www.seraphine.com
Black Roll Neck Nursing Top
Long enough to cover a bump (get a size up to be comfy), and perfect for breastfeeding with a double layer opening panel at the front. Made of bamboo fibre, more ethical than cotton, this top also feels silky soft for sensitive skin. Wash on delicates. A wardrobe staple.
Black Rollneck Knitted Maternity Jumper
This ribbed, neutral style is another wardrobe staple to mix and match. It has a button down detail that allows for this chunky knit roll neck style to provide a comfortable option for breastfeeding during winter. It is
4% Cashmere 4% Angora 18% Cotton 18% Lambwool 33% Viscose 23% Nylon. Cold hand wash with extreme care.
Grey Colour Block Knitted Maternity Tunic
This knitted tunic is a super soft and warm blend of bamboo yarn and wool. The large funnel neck opens up with a stylish popper opening system to allow for different looks and adapt to the changing temperatures. Wear it open for a shawl effect or close it down.
Grey Wrap Front Maternity and Nursing Jumper
This a great discreet system for easy feeding. The easy open drape front panel cleverly conceals a breastfeeding friendly opening to allow for nursing. Use the panel as a cover for both when feeding in public. The soft bamboo knit is perfect for bump during pregnancy as well as post birth.Wash on delicates or by hand as I shrunk my last one of these!
Grey Nursing Shawl
£42.00 from www.seraphine.com
This versatile piece can be worn as a shawl, scarf, or used to swaddle baby, and comes with useful poppers in a soft bamboo viscose blend. A great investment and looks fab with skinny jeans.
Breastfeeding Turtleneck light grey
£55.00 from www.seraphine.com
The clever cross front design allows you to swaddle your baby while feeding for complete discretion.Great for pregnancy and breastfeeding.
