Frustrated By Nursing? You're Not Alone

You know you're feeding your baby with exactly the right amount of nutrition that she needs when you breastfeed her. The trouble is, that isn't always enough to get you through the tough times.

But we digress… You realize that you need to buy nursing bras, or worse, you’ve already bought them and they have underwire inside. But now, you’re second guessing your purchase and wondering if it’s safe to wear your new, strategic lingerie. Then you think, well, would all these companies sell underwire nursing bras if they weren’t safe? One would hope, amiright?!?!
