I very slowly deposit Leonard in his crib. The little man fell asleep while nursing… again! As soon as he is tucked in, I very quietly tiptoed out of the room and fastened my nursing bra strap.

For 8 months now, I have had the immense pleasure of breastfeeding my child. Luckily for me, when the time came to buy nursing bras, I was very well advised. After all, not a day goes by without me wearing one.

I am pretty sure you will agree with me that choosing a bra that is both cute and comfortable is an art form in itself. When the time has come to choose one for breastfeeding the help of an expert is crucial, especially when expecting a first child. Each employee at L’Enfantillon maternité is well trained to help guide you through the process.

There are numerous advantages for choosing a specialized store for this type of purchase. You will have a wide variety of choices, great quality, care instructions and knowledge on proper adjustment. L’Enfantillon maternité has a wide inventory that will suit all sizes, from A to G… Bravado, Noppies, Bellabumbum, Boob and Cache Coeur are just some of the available brands.

 

 

Try many different models to find the correct fit for you. The adjustment is basically the same as a regular bra: the shoulder straps should equally be snug on both sides, you should be able to insert a finger easily under the back hooks, your breasts should not bulge or spill out of the cups, etc.

The fundamental difference here is we need to make sure that no unnecessary pressure is applied on the breast, that the cup must allow for fluctuations in breast size and that the client must often deal with a more important chest size than usual.

Go for the wider shoulder straps for optimal support. Certain models even offer padded straps for the most generous breast. You should stay away from bras that have underwire during the first months, since they do not adapt as well to volume changes caused by milk production cycles and can compress certain lactiferous channels.

If comfort is your top priority, the feminine color arrays and delicate fabrics offered at L’Enfantillon maternité will enchant you! You can garnish your lingerie drawer as you please, but be sure to have at least 3 nursing bras at hand.

And remember that there is a wide selection of nursing clothes for you to choose from in our store : from pajamas to formal attire, bathing suits and all articles to suit your everyday needs.

Which makes me curious… what is your favorite brand of nursing bra and why?
