5 Things to Do for Your Breasts Before Becoming a Nursing Mom


You’ve decided to have a baby. Excellent! In less than 10 months, you may be a happily nursing mom to a beautiful baby girl or boy. Before you and your partner begin the baby-making marathon and you become a nursing mom, take some time to treat your breasts.
Wear Dresses Often

Once you become a nursing mom, dresses may become a thing of the past. As a nursing mom, I have few qualms about lifting my shirt to feed my daughter in public. However, I refuse to expose my entire unclothed body because of a dress. Wearing a dress while nursing requires a skill that many nursing moms just don’t have. Once you begin nursing, you may not wear another dress for 2 or 3 years. Just in case, make sure to enjoy those dresses now.

Enjoy Cute Bras

When looking for a supportive, comfortable nursing bra, looks usually go out the window. That isn’t to say that cute nursing bras don’t exist. However, depending on how big your breasts get, cute bras may be a thing of the past. Before you become a nursing mom, enjoy your cute, sexy bras.

Photograph your Breasts, Again and Again

Once you become a nursing mom, your breasts may never look the same again. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Plenty of nursing mom’s breasts recover quite nicely from nursing. Even so, as a nursing mom you may long for your pre-pregnancy boobs. Take plenty of pictures now, from all angles, before becoming pregnant. On that same note if you have any desire to flash someone, do it now.

Sleep Without a Bra

Once you become a nursing mom, your breasts may triple in size. Going braless at night may quickly become a longed for pastime. Before you become pregnant, shed your nightly bra at least once a week. Once you begin nursing and your milk jugs arrive, your breasts won’t ever be as free.

Enjoy Your Breasts

Finally, before pregnancy and nursing transforms your breasts, make sure and enjoy the ones you currently have. Touch them, squeeze them, love them… spend as much time with them as you can. Your breasts have a strenuous job ahead of them. For now, relax and enjoy them.

Nursing is one of the most amazing experiences a woman can ever have. Yes, nursing may very well change the shape of your breasts forever, but I assure you, it is absolutely worth it.
