WARNING: frank discussion of breastfeeding and lady-booby-bits... it doesn't bother me so I don't know why it should bother you but, meh, the internet *shrug*
ok, so I spent pretty much... err... yup half my life being generally disappointed with my boobs... well... I've now found my boobs' secret talent. Apparently they're hella good at feeding babies (well... my baby... haven't tried them on other people's babies yet, although I am feeling I may have had quite a profitable career as a wetnurse if such careers still existed...)
I could wear a bra to bed and pad it with breast pads but I'm not sure that would solve the problem, plus I only have 2 nursing bras and I'm already having trouble washing them quickly enough, also, I like to be comfortable to sleep. You can of course *buy* nursing nightgowns but *pfft* that would involve MONEY...
So I took one of my vest tops and made this:
It literally took me 40 mins MAXIMUM and is completely going to solve my nighttime feeding/sleeping/not drowning problem :-) what you've got here is a stretchy cropped vest top, with an internal pocket (which I will be padding with cut-up old towels) and velcro fastening at the straps to enable night-time bleary eyed feeding.
want it? make it! I've written down the super easy instructions here.
