Re: Nursing bras and underwires - question
Underwire bras do contribute to plugged ducts for some moms- that's why we're all told to avoid them. IMHO, it's a good idea to avoid underwires for the first few months, while your milk supply is getting established and you're figuring out the whole confusing world of lactation... But once you've figured out how your body works, and whether you're someone who is prone to plugged ducts, then you can decide whether or not to reintroduce them.
I didn't even wear a bra for the first 3-4 months unless I had to go out in public, and I'm a 40DD... It was just so much easier that way!
