When I was contacted by Leading Lady regarding their products, I was very excited to share them with you. You see, for myself, I have lived in nursing bras and camis for the last 50 months of my life basically. I have tried many, many different brands and different styles of nursing bras and camis, you name it I tried it. I fell in love with my nursing camis. I loved that while nursing my mid-section was covered. During the summer, sometimes I would just wear them as a tank. They were comfortable to sleep in, as I needed a nursing bra at night, so I have truly lived in my nursing camis.
Leading Lady offers a wide selection of intimate apparel all the way up to a F/G/H (which is sooo hard to find) and they also offer 100% organic options as well! This was the cami I received and I love that is a natural color. I found that my whites didn’t stay white for long and my black camis quickly faded, so I really preferred the natural & grey colors.
I love that there is not a piece of fabric in between your breasts. I found those style to be so uncomfortable. They were never large enough to begin with and then when my milk let in, they were too small x 3! Leading Ladies camis have one-hand adjustable latches that make it easy to remove and fasten which I love!
The 100% organic cotton material is so soft. It is so comfortable on, but also so soft and gentle on your little (or not so little) one’s skin. Plus since it is organic, you do not have to worry about one more clothing item that would be exposing them to toxic chemicals.
I love that Leading Lady promotes breast-feeding and offers so much online support. They offer a Leading Lady’s Breastfeeding E-book. Here is a link to Leading Lady’s Breastfeeding Tips, which I think is very helpful. Both my children were preemies, but Austin had to remain in a Special Care Nursery for about a week. When he was born he was wisked away after one glance a a kiss. I was told that he would not be able to nurse for quite some time. With proper guidance I didn’t loose any time and starting pumping immediately so I could nurse as soon as he was able (thank-fully it was only 8 hours later that we were able to begin). By the time Addie was born, I only had a two week break from nursing and was ready to go!
If you are new to nursing, you can even ask their Lactation Consultant questions about breastfeeding! I truly found having the lactation consultants available for questions was such a huge help for me, along with my mother who had breastfeed five children but never had to pump before. Lastly you can even follow their nursing blog!
