BREASTFEEDING: Brand New Range of Nursing Friendly Clothes from Frugi


Over two years ago I remember coming home from hospital with a tiny Isabella, our breastfeeding journey had started a mere 20 minutes after giving birth and I had been feeding in my pyjamas for most of the time in hospital. Suddenly, I was looking at my wardrobe contents with despair - there was nothing breastfeeding friendly. Not only had my body shape changed a lot post pregnancy, but I wasn't prepared for the world of breastfeeding. Over time I discovered the whole wearing two layers trick, so that the top layer can be lifted up and the bottom layer covers your modesty. As someone who never wears trousers or jeans I still struggled with finding suitable clothes, a lot of time was spent browsing online. 

Fast forward to the birth of Poppy and once again I was beginning a new breastfeeding journey, but this time I knew what to expect! Over the years I had also come across a lot of different maternity brands, many of which offered nursing clothes too. One of these brands was Frugi - a vibrant company offering clothes and bedding made from super soft organic cotton. The breathable qualities in organic cotton make it perfect for precious baby skin, as well as keeping mummy's nice and cool. 

During #WorldBreastfeedingWeek (1st-7th August 2017) Frugi brought out a brand new range of clothes for mummies. The range includes tops and dresses, which are both pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly. Below are some of my top picks from their website...
Bandeau Dress
Bandeau Dress in Meadow Print 
Bandeau Dress

Bandeau Dress in Navy Stripe/Swan Print 
Joy Long Sleeved Top
Joy Long Sleeved Top in Navy Stripe
Vest Top
Vest Top in Swan Print 

I was kindly sent the Frugi Juniper Jumper to wear while breastfeeding Poppy and there are so many things I love about it. Each side has a long slit making feeding a lot easier whilst providing coverage, no need to balance a muslin cloth over your shoulder! As you can see from the photos it was easy to feed 'on-the-go', whilst still maintaining my modesty. This is exactly what I need, as a parent of two because in reality most of my feeding happens while doing something else. Forever multi-tasking! The design also makes it suitable for taking you through pregnancy, into nursing and then life afterwards too. 


 The jumper is made from such soft cotton, as with all Frugi clothes, making it so cosy for the quickly approaching autumn/winter seasons. The pop of colour on each cuff adds that extra bit of detail, which I love. In my opinion you can't beat having a striped jumper in your wardrobe, it's such a classic and timeless design. In fact when I look through my wardrobe nearly all of my jumpers, tops and blouses have some kind of stripe on!

  2. Love the idea of specialist BF clothes - it certainly isn't anything expectant and new mums even consider, is it really, but something that makes a great deal of difference!

  28. It's great to see Frugi offering lovely clothes for women who breastfeed. I remember these struggles, and was over the moon when I found a tunic that was BF friendly. I would definitely buy from this range if I was nursing

  29. I adore frugi! I have two of their mama dresses which have been a godsend this summer. And they are so pretty that I feel so confident in them. It's so easy to feel quite unattractive when you have to wear easy access clothing as a lot of the time they aren't very well fitting but not these. Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
