As many of you know, I’m a working mom who is still breastfeeding (a commitment that is not without its challenges!). I have the good fortune of having my daughter in a daycare that is literally across the street from where I work. This makes it possible for me to visit her every day at lunch and breastfeed her at that time.
Because I can breastfeed during my work day, I have to give careful thought to the clothes that I am wearing. I feed Darah right in her classroom, since the daycare doesn’t have any private space. I need to be able to get my clothes away from my chest without totally exposing myself in the process. Trust me, it’s tricky to do!
Medela, the company that is known for its top of the line breast pumps
has also created some nursing wear that helps breastfeeding moms out in similar situations. They have a nursing camisole that I had the opportunity to try it out, and I LOVE it! It has pretty much revolutionized my work wardrobe in terms of making it nursing friendly. The lace along the edges help dress it up a bit to make it work appropriate. I also found that it provided a great deal of support. As someone with larger breasts, I find it difficult to find tank tops or camisoles that offer the support I need, but this one does the trick. Thank you, Medela!
Overall, I’d have to say that Medela is definitely on to something good with the creation of this nursing camisole. I get the sense that this company is committed to turning out products that are high quality and do the job they need to do very well. This top gets an A+ from me and has turned me into even more of a Medela fan than I already was!
