Breastfeeding - what do you like to wear?
Well, firstly you can wear anything you want. In Australia, women and their babies/toddlers are protected by law; breastfeeding is a right. You do not have to breastfeed in a certain way. You do not have to cover up. Indeed, some babies don't like to breastfeed when they are covered up.
In other words, anything goes when it comes to breastfeeding and the clothes you choose to wear.
So what do you choose to wear when breastfeeding? Is your wardrobe any different to your pre-breastfeeding wardrobe? Do you find some clothes easier to feed in than others? Do you own any clothes specially designed for breastfeeding in?
I often breastfeed wearing a vest top under a normal top. I pull one of the tops up and the other down and breastfeed my baby comfortably and quickly between the tops. If he needs to be fed really quickly then I just pull both tops down and feed him like that.
I look forward to hearing what clothes you like to wear when you are breastfeeding.

Mostly, whatever I have that's clean, cos breastfeeding tops are expensive :P So just plain old tshirts most of the time!
In winter I do double layers like you say, just so I don't get a cold back, just with a stretchy singlet that I can pull down under another top that I lift up.R, mama to M (8), Z (5.5), and bellybabe due Jan 2014
