    Default Nursing in chilly room / chilly weather

    Anyone else get cold easily? Anyone seen any nursing tops that you can buy that don't expose you to so much cool air?

    I get cold super-easily! I don't wear nursing tops however. I just wear a regular t-shirt that I pull up. When it's chilly I also wear a cardigan or zip-up fleece hoodie. This way I can zip it open, lift the t-shirt underneath, and nurse baby while keeping warm.

    In case you want to look for a nursing top, Expressiva Nursingwear is having a big sale today: http://www.expressiva.com/

    I don't know what they have as I just got an email notice, but you might find some good alternatives.

    Also, if your baby nurses well under a cover, you can drape a shawl or light baby blanket around you and baby (such as a cotton muslin blanket). This doesn't work for us as my baby doesn't nurse under covers!

    Would it be comfortable to wear a nursing tank with a sweatshirt over it? You could lift the sweatshirt up and pull the tank down.

    I like tops like Jalie's nursing sweat shirt, I have one just like it from motherwear, pretty much like this one at momzelle as far as the opening and covering goes-http://www.momzelle.com/us/long-sleeves-nursing-tops/red-turtleneck.html

    I am also working on turtle necks from Elizabeth Lee. Mainly though cause they take such little fabric, and I can whip one up in minutes, I mainly have been wearing ELD ultimate mother cover in the faux turtle neck, with a cardi/jacket. But, that leaves a lot more exposed then the Jalie and other turtle necks.

    I wear a regular (not nursing) tank under everything. So I can lift my sweater (and shirt, I wear tons of layers) and can pull down my tank and bra. That way my body is covered with at least the tank.

    Oh, and if you do get specialized nursing wear, I suggest only getting summer stuff. You can always put a sweater over a tshirt or tank. You can't wear a big honkin' sweater or sweatshirt in July.

    I would say it depends on how long and how many children you plan on nursing. For me I have enough and plan on having more children, and I plan to nurse at least 2 years per a child, so for me it's worth the investment to have winter and summer nursing clothes. My sweatshirt nursing tops are some of my favorites for comfort.
