18 OUTFIT IDEAS FOR NURSING MAMAS

Naiya turned 9-months old this past week! She also hit a few new milestones that Phil and I couldn’t be more excited about:  she’s standing up unassisted, she’s doing a “kissy face” and she’s starting to repeat words like “mama” and “dada.” Naiya also took her first few steps this week (girl, slow down)! On top of it all, I can’t believe Naiya and I are also 9-months into our nursing journey. I never thought I’d get this far (more about my rough start here). Since I’m always trying out nursing outfits that are work and weekend-appropriate, I’m rounding up some of my latest finds for all of you new mamas out there today.

THE ONLY YOGA PANTS YOU’LL EVER NEED

Sharing one of my favorite pairs of leggings with you today that brought me from pre-pregnancy through to pregnancy, postpartum and beyond (without having to buy a different size!).  I first started wearing K-Deer haute yoga pants years ago when they were a new brand that had the perfect shorts and pants for hot yoga.  I quickly became a fan and previously posted about them here and here.  Since then, the company has continued to grow and they’ve added tons of new styles I can’t get enough of.  I love these pants so much that you can often find me wearing them not only to workout in but also around the clock.  Excited to share how I wear K-Deer yoga pants three different ways today.

HOW TO ROCK GOING BACK TO WORK AFTER BABY

turbans for tots

Last week was my first week going back to work since having Naiya and it was so surreal. As excited as I was to actually get dressed, find my professional self again and have adult conversations that didn’t involve poop and spit-up, leaving Naiya was undoubtably hard.  Since Naiya and I had not been apart since she was born for more than a few hours at a time, saying goodbye to her for the whole day cold turkey felt like such a big step! I was mostly nervous because she still hadn’t learned how to take a bottle and I wasn’t sure if she would be able to eat the entire day without me there to nurse her (cue the new mom guilt and tears!).
