The Real Scoop On What To Wear Right After Baby and When You’re Still Nursing:
Having a newborn can be expensive and overwhelming. Maternity/nursing clothes have come a long way, but most are pretty pricey, especially considering they have an expiration date. We interviewed Adrienne Cohen, a former Bloomingdale’s buyer, about her favorite tips and tricks for that post-baby body.
DRESSES: MY GO-TO
Dresses are an easy way to feel put together right after having a baby. I ordered this dress from Amazon, and it’s awesome. I wore it to an event recently and got tons of compliments. It's very versatile, looks cute belted, and would be good for pregnant or nursing moms with the tie at the bust. I wore a cami underneath. It would be nice with sandals, but also works with booties and a jean jacket. It runs small, so order a size up. I just got this great fall/winter update from H&M. If you bring three items of fabric in to recycle you get a 15% off coupon!
After my baby was born, I didn’t want to wear maternity clothes any more or invest a lot of money in a transitional wardrobe, so I opted for loose or swing tops like this one and added a nursing cami underneath to hide my belly. Old Navy and J. Crew (and J. Crew Factory) have good, inexpensive options. This one is adorable and good for nursing because of the buttons.
Plaid is everywhere! This top is cute, comfortable, and comes in great colors for the Holiday Seasons.
I always paired my tops with high-waisted jeans and leggings to suck it all in. My sister got me these camo leggings, which are amazing. There’s a new green color combo that is just as great. Everyone raves about this company’s faux leather leggings, which are perfect for the holidays. I’m also intrigued by their new distressed denim leggings.
If those seem expensive, these Old Navy Jeggings are a great alternative.
