Mesh tops hide nursing leaks
Shannon's practical fashion tip for nursing moms:
As the (leaky) nursing mother of a 2 1/2 month old, I've resigned myself to changing myself to pretty much only wearing black in public and always packing an extra t-shirt so that I don't sit around with huge wet spots on my chest.
I recently bought a double layer mesh top to wear to a party, and couldn't resist wearing it for a test run the other day (sometimes you just need something to make Wednesday a little special, eh?) -- of course, the inevitable leak happened, but I was surprised when the wet spot was dry within ten minutes! I'm reminded of the hiker/cyclist refrain that "cotton kills" (because it takes forever to dry after getting wet). I imagine any "wicking" top from an outdoors-type store would work just as well, but there are some very pretty (and patterned, double bonus!) mesh tops in department stores these days.
Anyone else have tips for hiding the leaks?
