Well ladies, now that you re expecting that little bundle of joy, you need to look for the best nursing bras before you deliver. Whether you choose to nurse or use formula, you still need to get a nursing bra. Your breasts will be tender, sensitive, and larger than usual. A regular bra with that gripping underwire has no give, has seams which will cause you pain, and smother your breasts at a time when they need to breathe. The traditional underwires crush against your diaphragm which will naturally expand as you lactate. Conventional underwire also collapses milk ducts causing a blockage, which may generate an infection. A good nursing bra alleviates these issues.
