Nummies Lingere for Nursing

FAM, pregnancy By May 29, 2012 Tags: , , , No Comments

Num num num.  I just can’t look at the brand without smiling (and given I was introduced to founder Alison Kramer as @nummiesbras on Twitter and she is totally hilarious, I knew I’d love the lingere).  Nursing bras are hard to find – especially comfortable ones that you can sleep in.  They need to be soft but firm, gentle but supportive.. (Sounds like a ‘men are from mars, women are from venus’ conversation).  While Nummies supplies Fashion and even T-shirt nursing bras, the new ‘Comfort’ line is a perfect entry into nursing – kind of like hanging out in your favourite jeans.  We liked the softness and the fact there is no underwire that can cause mastitis if worn too often.  Throw it in the wash, tumble dry.  Warning: you may want to make this bra (along with your favourite jeans) a staple of your wardrobe long after you finish breastfeeding.
