Tips on What to Wear When You’re Pregnant, Post Preggers and Traveling

 

These are the things you want to think about before anything else!

 

Easy to pull open

The nursing top should not be complicated with a lot of chains and buttons because you wear it for the convenience of breastfeeding in one go. The clothes should be simple with easy to open clamps for feeding your baby. It should be comfortable to wear and mostly be the right kind of clothing you choose to travel with. Always keep comfort and ease of feeding on top priority rather than style and design.

 

Pack well and comfortable

Traveling with a baby or while pregnant is not a problem if you pack the right kind of clothes and footwear. It is 2017 and there are many brands with special maternity clothing line keeping in mind the type of clothes comfortable during pregnancy. While pregnant, the best kind of clothing that you can wear is long tops with comfortable leggings. Another very comfortable pick of clothes for ladies with a baby bump is long dresses. The dresses are comfortable, stylish, lightweight and great to flaunt the bump in style. Ensure that the footwear you pack is flats and comfortable to wear.

 

Soft and breathable material

The best clothing for nursing mothers or expecting mothers is a material which enables easy breathing. Cotton based material is best as it is light and heat friendly, cool and breathable. Alternatively, nylon based flexible dresses are also comfortable to wear while traveling. Try to buy maternity clothes with no clips or fasteners, easy to open and machine washable. The clothes should also be lasting since it is what you will be wearing throughout maternity and post-pregnancy. When we talk about comfort separate layers like; tops with leggings or skirts, are also favorable. While traveling, make sure that you layer yourself properly in case it gets too windy.

 

Make right choice for luggage

While pregnant or traveling with your toddler, you need to ensure that the luggage used for packing is light and comfortable to carry. Never over pack and use a easy to wheel case to make your travel comfortable. Carry accessories like pillow, vapour water bottle, medicines etc while travelling pregnant or with your baby.
