Nursing-Friendly Winter Clothes: Comfort and Style for Mums
Hey there, Mums! As the winter chill sets in, we all know how important it is to stay warm and cosy while tackling those mum duties. But if you're nursing, finding comfortable and practical winter clothing that allows easy access for breastfeeding can feel like an Arctic expedition! And we know that while fashion is not your top priority right now, you can still look fabulous and feel beautiful with a few strategic pieces. Not sure what that means?
Fear not, because we've got you covered with some easy, fabulous nursing-friendly winter fashion that will keep you both snug and stylish throughout the season while keeping your little one’s tummy full.
Layering Essentials for Nursing Moms
Layering is the name of the game during winter, and it's no different for nursing mums. But let's face it; trying to nurse while bundled up like an Eskimo can quickly put ice in your veins! That's why it's crucial to focus on the lower layers and keep your top layer all about accessibility.
A clever trick to keep your neck warm without compromising on nursing convenience is to wear a turtleneck dickie under your favourite sweater, and you'll be cosy and ready to nurse in a jiffy.
If this is not your style or you’re having trouble finding the colour that’s right for you, we’ve got an even better solution!
Our Billie Knit line offers the perfect nursing-friendly cardigans that are not only cosy and stylish but also open quickly and discreetly for breastfeeding time. With options like the Taupe Billie Knit, Denim Blue Billie Cardigan, and Black Billie Knit, you can stay warm, nurse with ease, and look fabulous all winter long.
Functional Dresses for Nursing Mums
Who said nursing mums can't rock dresses during winter? Embrace the versatility of our dress collection with nursing-friendly designs that make breastfeeding a breeze. For example, our black Fresia dress is not only fashion-forward but also allows easy access for nursing, so you don't have to compromise on style or convenience.
But here's a little secret: you can also achieve nursing-friendly comfort with an apron dress by pairing it with a lycra or stretch-fabric shirt underneath. This not only adds warmth but also provides easy access for nursing your little one.
Our Freez apron dresses offer a wide selection of chic nursing-friendly options. You'll be thrilled to discover a range of fashion-forward choices that will keep you looking fabulous while you take care of your precious bundle of joy.
Comfortable Bottoms for Nursing Moms
Comfort is key, especially when it comes to bottoms for nursing mums. During the winter months, opt for maternity pants or stretchy leggings that provide both style and flexibility. High-waisted styles are particularly perfect for postpartum comfort, giving you the support you need for your changing body while ensuring you stay on trend and toasty.
Slouch pants for women are an excellent choice for easy movement and chic vibes. Not only do they offer a laid-back look, but they also give you the freedom to move around comfortably while attending to your little one's needs.
On the other hand, women’s jogger pants are another go-to option for nursing mums during the winter season. With their stretchy and comfortable fabric, they are perfect for mums on the move. Not to mention, they offer a fashionable and sporty “athleisure” look that's all the rage these days.
Choosing Nursing-Friendly Winter Accessories
If you’re nursing, you can still find ways to feel like a million dollars with the help of a few carefully chosen accessories. The best ones to reach for add cosy warmth, enhance your style, and won’t get in the way when it’s time to nurse. Our favourites are scarves, shawls, and nursing covers! They help keep the chill away and provide a touch of elegance and energy to your outfits.

Tips for Building a Nursing-Friendly Winter Wardrobe
As a nursing mum, you don’t have time to fuss with your outfits every day. The key is to build a winter wardrobe that effortlessly combines comfort and style. No more fumbling with layers, unforgiving fabrics, removing multiple layers, or feeling restricted while trying to breastfeed your little one.
Let's dive into some fantastic tips to help you curate a functional and fashion-forward nursing-friendly winter wardrobe that will keep you feeling comfortable, confident, and cosy all season long.
1. Embrace Nursing-Friendly Staples
The key to a successful winter mummy wardrobe is having a strong foundation of nursing-friendly staples. We can’t emphasise this enough. Invest in pieces that are easy to open and close quickly when it's time to breastfeed, such as our Drew Knits. They are designed to provide comfort and convenience for nursing mums like you without compromising on style.
2. Opt for Versatile Layers
Layering is essential for staying warm during winter, but it can pose a challenge when you’re nursing. Bulky pieces, fasteners to navigate, or too many layers can turn feeding time into a production. Our advice? Focus on pieces that can be easily opened for breastfeeding, and avoid wearing too many layers on top that can make nursing cumbersome. Additionally, stick to tank tops or nursing-friendly tops as your base layer, and keep the topmost layer simple and easily accessible.
3. Mix and Match Neutrals
When building your nursing-friendly winter wardrobe, focus on neutral colours. Neutrals are not only timeless and versatile but also easy to mix and match, allowing you to create various stylish outfits with minimal effort. Black, grey, navy and beige are classic choices that complement any winter ensemble.
4. Create a Winter Capsule Wardrobe
Consider creating a winter capsule wardrobe to simplify your daily outfit decisions. A capsule wardrobe consists of a curated collection of essential and interchangeable pieces that can be mixed and matched to create endless outfits! This approach saves time and ensures you always have stylish and nursing-friendly options at hand, which is what every busy mum needs.
