Here’s the thing: shortly after the birth of my son, I was anything but kind to myself, especially when it came to my looks.
Even though I knew my body had done something wonderful, I was shocked (ref: delusional) to see that I hadn’t returned to my pre-pregnancy weight. Worst of all, I felt like a stranger in my own skin.
Breastfeeding made me feel more like a milk machine than a human. Also, it gave my boobs an odd hybrid where they looked like sad sandbags and Playboy model material. My daily changing weight mixed with my imbalanced hormones had turned me into one big unsafe mess.
So shopping for cute clothes wasn’t exactly fun.
Aside from not even knowing my size, I needed pieces that would be breastfeeding friendly, that could evolve with my body, and that would boost my confidence. Because the truth is, if I don’t look good, I don’t feel good.
So it was a great relief for me when the nap dress met all the criteria.
