Nursing Clothes You’ve Been Waiting For: A Review of Latched Mama Nursing Clothes

You might notice that you never see me wearing breastfeeding tops. The nursing wear that I have come across as a breastfeeding mother is either too expensive or too ugly. I took to the 2 shirt method (wearing 2 shirts and pulling the top one up above my breast and the bottom one down under my breast to free my nipple) and when that became too much work I now simply tug whatever I am wearing under my breast and expose my chest; something that has never bothered me.

Before I became pregnant I had built a beautiful wardrobe of clothes. I worked fulltime and liked to look slick. After having my first child I found that I was never able to return to the nice items in my wardrobe because I was always having to think about what was going to fit best with my go-to method of pulling my shirt down. I still have these nice clothes. I don’t know when I’ll wear them. In the meantime my signature look is the shelf bra tank from Target. #oneineverycolor

Shelf bra. Pink. Not pretending to try. 

I don’t mind at all that I have given up my fancy clothes, but I wouldn’t mind looking a bit more, how you say, put together sometimes. My tank tops have begun to fray where the strap meets the bra from being pulled down so many times. I got slightly too excited the other day when I found my holey, cutoff sweat pants that I thought were gone forever. I think many moms have a time when they embrace not caring much about their appearance and many of us also have a time when we’d like to start pampering ourselves again.

With a nursing 6 month old and 3 year old I really wanted to find some stylish nursing clothes that weren’t going to break my bank. I was surprised when I visited Latched Mama nursing clothes by how cute the items were. “Well, I bet they’re expensive.” I was wrong. “Well, I bet they’re crappy!” Wrong again.

Latched Mama Lightweight Nursing Hoodie

Seriously, folks. I found some great nursing wear that is cute and affordable! Woot!

Latched Mama nursing clothes are made with a cotton/spandex mix so it fits comfortably and feels as soft as your nursling’s breastmilk-nourished skin. The items have easy access secret passages to your nipple for quick latching. This is most useful when babywearing so you’re not digging around for the bottom of your shirt or trying to pull your shirt down with your hand in between yourself and baby. These tops provide you with maximum coverage if discretion is your thing.

Latched Mama Active Nursing Tank. 

My littlest nursling loves the strings on the hoodie. They are the perfect distraction from nipple twiddling or scratching. The tops have become my go-to shirts. I get compliments on them before people learn they are nursing tops. I am going to get a couple more so that I never have to go through a day without one! Baby steps, but I am feeling a bit more like my old self that liked to wear fashionable clothes. It means a lot to a mother just 6 months postpartum.

I doubt you will be disappointed when visiting Latched Mama. So go on! Check them out and get a few things for yourself! You can search their tops, dresses and jewelry here. And don’t forget to follow Latched Mama on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

  1. I will definitely check them out. I have one nursing top I love which I ordered off EBay, but it was too much money to buy multiples. With one toddler still nursing and hopes of having another in the near(ish) future, this might be a good investment.

    and a good way to ensure you’ll be able to find your way
    back to your base is to make it as visible as
    possible from as far away as possible. Chapter three of Secrets of Power Marketing explains how to get and leverage your media
    exposure. The Cowgirls were in a zone last weekend in Knoxville.
