I have been breastfeeding for 6 almost seven months now. I heard when buying a nursing Bra you should wait until you are towards the end of your pregnancy because that is the closest to the size you will be while nursing. I found this site which is pretty helpful.

Good Luck!!

Hi Liz!


I JUST went to a prenatal breastfeeding class last night, so I'd be glad to try to answer any questions that you have regarding breastfeeding.

Dear Liz
I remember being like u once upon a time :). n i just feel like pulling ur cheek lightly n giving u a kiss on ur nose coz its just so sweet to hear such things from a nervous first timer.
Breast feeding is nothing too complicated. babies have different refluxes n the first n foremost reflux is suckling..anything infact...thumb, breast, cloth etc. soon as ur baby will be born, the nurse might bring the baby to ur breast, n he'll start sucking himself once there. u wont have to worry about anything. everytime ur baby is hungry, just bring him near ur breast n the rest will be done just fine.
so relax m breathe deep.
Happy labouring n breastfeeding!

Hi

My first son is 18mths and still b'feeding now & again. I am also 24wks pregnant

A great Aussie site is www.breastfeeding.asn.au/

I bet you've read up alot on labour! You'll have your bub either way(Csection/natural) but its improtant to read up on breastfeeding just as much if not more.

Good Luck.

The skin to skin contact you are talking about is called Baby Led Attachment and is worth reading up on!!!

Buy a couple of sleeping nursing bras from motherhood maternity - you will love them. You might not want to buy a regular nursing bra until about 2 weeks after the baby is born because you'll change sizes a couple of times... I was a 'D' the first week but by the 2nd week settled into a 'C' cup.
