My little lass turned one year old a couple weeks ago, which honestly blows my mind. This past year has flown by, and as excited as I am about her impending first steps and first words, I find myself begging time to slow down.
I'm cherishing every special "baby" moment, even though I guess she can technically now be called a toddler. Her little babbles, snuggling together in bed after her usual 5am wakeup, and breastfeeding.
You know, it's funny. I never really thought about breastfeeding that much until I had kids. But now that I've nursed two tiny babies, it comes as natural to me as breathing. I'm still nursing my little lass several times a day, and don't have a particular cut-off date in mind. She's already begun self-weaning a little bit, but still prefers nursing during times when she is sleepy or needs comforting.
One of the quirky things about nursing a wiggly one year old is that she is easily distracted, and may beg to nurse, but once she begins, may quickly change her mind and pop off to go play with someone or something.
This is one of the many reasons why I adore nursing shirts and dresses, especially from the brand Milk Nursingwear.
this teal dress - teal being my favorite color (in case you couldn't tell by now!)
Since then, I purchased the same dress in black...
and also added this little number to my wardrobe!
That's where nursingwear comes in handy.
Milk Nursingwear makes nursing dresses and shirts that allow moms to nurse easily by lifting a top layer of fabric and exposing a smaller opening. I've honestly nursed in this dress and people nearby didn't even know I was breastfeeding, because all of my body that was exposed was completely covered up my baby's head.

Their pieces really hold up over time, are comfortable, and are incredibly forgiving for the postpartum figure. Some shirts and dresses have ruching on the sides, some have short sleeves or long sleeves, and everything feels super comfy - and can easily be washed!
I don't know when my breastfeeding relationship is going to end with my tiny baby, but when it does, I still might be wearing some of these pieces - because I love the way they feel, and how pretty I feel when I wear them.
