How to Select the Perfect Nursing Bra for Your Pregnancy

How to Select the Perfect Nursing Bra for Your Pregnancy and Postpartum Stages: An In-Depth Guide?

Being a new mother is a beautiful and transformative experience, and during pregnancy and the postpartum stages, your body goes through significant changes. One essential item that can provide comfort, support, and convenience during this time is a nursing bra.

How to Choose the Nursing Bra to Ease Discomfort During Early Pregnancy Stage?

Monumental changes happen to your breasts during pregnancy. Hormones cause the complex structures of your breasts to develop further to produce milk for the baby. The main development occurs in the mammary glands. Hormones cause the size and number of milk ducts to grow and branch out with lobules, which secrete milk, and the body becomes ready for milk production. These changes take place during the first 3-4 weeks of pregnancy. By weeks 5-8, you might notice that your breasts have grown noticeably bigger and heavier.

In the second trimester, colostrum - also known as the first milk - is formed. Breast volume increases throughout pregnancy due to the continuous increase in fats and tissues. Blood in the breast tissues also increases, making your breasts heavier. By week 16, your milk-producing glands are ready to start production, and breast milk might leak onto your bra or shirt. All these developments can make your breasts feel tender, sore or swollen. There might also be tingling sensations. As your breasts continue to grow, they can become hypersensitive to cold temperatures as well. Your pre-pregnancy bra might also feel tighter. Wearing a good nursing bra can ease these discomforts considerably.

After delivery, you may experience nipple soreness within the first two weeks of nursing due to increased sensitivity. Breastfeeding will reduce the discomfort, but getting comfortable with breastfeeding, especially for a new mother, might take time. Engorged breasts can make it hard for the baby to latch on to and you might get sore nipples from poor latching. A good nursing bra can help to make breastfeeding much more convenient.
