Advice to preggos everywhere:
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE CLOTHES THAT YOU CAN NURSE IN WHILE YOU CAN STILL GO SHOPPING SANS BABY.
It turns out my wardrobe is really really not nursing friendly. So, even though I can fit into all of my old clothes, I really can't wear much of it because I CAN'T NURSE IN ANYTHING I OWN.
I have exactly one dress that has a neckline that can be pulled down enough to nurse in.
Are you freaking kidding me?!?
My wardrobe consists of like 85% dresses.
This conundrum has forced me to dig through all my clothes in search of low necklines and stretchy materials. I've found 4 or 5 tops that work, but do you know what the problem with tops are? It means I have to wear pants!
Ugh, I hate pants.
Seriously, I would rather wear a dress any day of the week over pants.
But until I find some cute dresses with low necklines...I'm stuck in pants.
Also, I CAN'T GO SHOPPING WITH BABY.
I mean, theoretically I could...but not really, not here, not in SF.
This is one of those things that I just haven't figured out how to do yet. I mean, of course it's possible, women don't just NOT go shopping after they have babies right?
But...it's just not as simple as it used to be and I'm having trouble adjusting.
It would require me to either wear baby downtown and take public transport, which...how do you try on clothes while wearing baby?
Drive downtown and take the stroller.
I shudder at the thought.
You see...I don't drive downtown. I'm anti downtown driving. ANTI DOWNTOWN DRIVING.
My other option?
Go to the local boutiques with baby in a stroller.
This is obviously the best option, but...I haven't done it yet.
I know I just need to suck it up and GO rather than whine about my lack of wardrobe, but to be honest baby is still a bit too new for me to set out on such grand adventures with him.
Maybe next week.
So for now I'm stuck walking around in my stupid pants, or...wearing my one dress several days in a row until it gets so covered in spitup that I am required to wash it.
To all you other ladies nearing the end of your pregnancies who are finishing up buying all your baby essentials, DON'T FORGET ABOUT YOURSELVES! And make sure you buy some nursing friendly clothing before baby arrives!
Also, are there any other style of dress besides wrap dresses that work to nurse in?
