Five benefits of wearing a nursing bra for maternity: Pregnant or nursing? You may want to ditch your ordinary bra for a nursing bra. Swelling, sensitive breasts may find it painful squeezing into a regular bra— and nothing is worse than an uncomfortable fit to make motherhood even harder!
A great time to buy a maternity bra is around week 18 of pregnancy. Note that purchasing a regular bra several sizes up will not properly assist with your needs. Here is a list of all the reasons you should wear a nursing bra:
- They minimize aching and swelling: since they do not have an underwire, they won’t press against the soft tissue. Additionally, the wide straps distribute the pressure of growing breasts.
- They are healthier: the underwire in regular bras apply extra pressure on the milk ducts. This blocking may cause mastitis. With a nursing bra, blood flows freely within your soft breast tissue. This means you wont have to worry about the breasts losing their shape and sagging.
- They make nursing easier: blocked milk ducts mean less milk for your baby or even a complete stopping of milk production. A nursing bra makes both you and baby happier!
- They are convenient: having to constantly remove your bra to breastfeed your baby is tiring, time-consuming and just plain annoying! However, a nursing bra is equipped with clips, making it super easy to hook and unhook in mere seconds. This means less wait time for your very thirsty little one!
- They use flexible fabrics: an increase in breast size can be extremely intolerable for mothers. A nursing bra takes this into consideration by its user of fabrics such as spandex. They are less restrictive than an ordinary bra and its several rows of hooks in the back make the bra adjustable.
