Spring/Easter Dresses (for the Nursing Mom)

28 March 2018


To all you moms who still find time to curl your hair AND find something trendy to wear, I'm sending you all the clap emojis. I'm impressed, and I don't know how you do it. Last weekend, we had our nephew's baby dedication and a family lunch afterwards, and I literally straightened half my hair before I ran out of time and we had to leave. (Messy bun + big earrings were my solution.) I DID happen to find a nursing-friendly dress at a thrift store...and while it wasn't super spring-y, it was my favorite color (mustard/yellowish) with buttons down the front, making it easy to nurse in!



There is nothing more fun than having a crying baby that you're quickly trying to feed, but what your wearing is a little tricky and the baby keeps crying louder. Really, you should try it. And if you're like me and don't mind using a nursing cover to feed the baby in a room full of family/friends, ask them how fun it is to hear the aforementioned baby cry more and more while you fight with your shirt, tank top, and nursing bra to try and get a gosh-darned boob to that hungry and very vocal baby. Really, it is a fun moment for everyone. 😑

If you're still looking for a spring/Easter dress last minute, check out these favorites that I've rounded up from the interwebs. All of these are links to dresses online, but all of the dresses are sold in stores so see if your Old Navy/Gap has them in stock so you don't have to waste time waiting for shipping! And if none of these look good to you, I've included some things to look for when you shop for a nursing-friendly dress.

Favorite Easter Dresses for the Nursing Mom: 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 

What to look for in a nursing-friendly dress:
  1. Button down at the top
  2. Cross wrap in the front
  3. Low-cut enough to pull a booby out without having to take the dress off (camis help it not look lowcut ;) )
  4. Forget the dress idea and just go with a skirt + top.
  5. Find the maternity section and see if any of their dresses are nursing-friendly. 
I also love how Beth at Oak + Oats found a maternity dress that's ALSO a dress you can nurse in!! She wins all the points 😊 

Do you have a favorite spring dress? What are some of your favorite things to wear in spring?
