Breastfeeding during hot summer weather can be a daunting endeavor. That’s why we’ve found 3 great bamboo summer accessories for nursing moms. Wearing bamboo is especially beneficial during the summer, because its inherent properties help keep both moms and babies cool. Additionally, sustainably grown bamboo is a wonderful, eco-friendly material for postpartum wardrobes.
Bamboo fiber is extremely soft, comfortable, and most importantly, breathable. Yes, organic cotton is a breathable textile as well, but it doesn’t allow as much air to pass through. Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial, UV protecting, and absorbent, and it emits less greenhouse gases to produce, compared to other textiles. It’s important to wear breathable materials such as bamboo during the summer, to help cut down on excess generated body heat and perspiration during breastfeeding sessions. A hot, irritated baby, and an uncomfortable mother will ultimately lead to an unproductive breastfeeding session.
Here are our top picks of garments and accessories that utilize the benefits of bamboo in nursing wear and accessories:
+ A molded, seamless bra (not just a shelf bra) that provides complete support for a variety of cup sizes
+ Subtle nursing clips that allow for full breastfeeding access
+ Extremely versatile, and may be worn during all stages of pregnancy. This tank can be dressed up or down, worn alone, or used as a great layering piece.
