What is Discreet Breastfeeding?
Discreet is a word often used when we talk about breastfeeding in North America. We as a society are very concerned with inappropriate exposure (remember Janet Jackson's unfortunate Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction"?) and as such nursing moms often feel inclined to exercise discretion when breastfeeding. Breastfeeding discreetly can certainly mean different things to different people. To some, breastfeeding with discretion may mean hiding baby under a nursing cover while sitting all alone in a room. To others, it could simply be turning their back to others while nursing openly in public.
Sadly, we as moms are often made to feel bad for our choices about how we breastfeed. That's why nursing wear that allows for discreet breastfeeding is a great addition to your postpartum wardrobe.
A hidden panel that covers the top of your breast while you're nursing makes it look like you haven't pulled your top down to breastfeed. What's great about a stretchy panel is that you can adjust it as baby moves around to ensure the best coverage. When a hidden panel is removable, your top can continue to be worn long after your nursing days are over.
As moms move forward in their breastfeeding journey, they often develop a rhythm and a confidence that allows for nursing anytime and anywhere. Sometimes, a woman who starts out as modest loses her modesty completely! But that doesn't happen to everyone.
A great nursing wear wardrobe can help make every mom feel more confident as she breastfeeds. It's a great option that didn't exist when we were babies!
