That urge to get out for a few hours feels like a night out on the town. Then it sinks in…what do I wear? New moms probably can’t imagine looking and feeling like themselves again—let alone runway ready—but there are a few basics every new mom should have for a stylish maternity leave.

V-neck or wide neck tops – This makes it easy for nursing, but also for changing. Who knows how many times you are going to get milk spilled on you, or what else will be drenched across your lap. 

Loose fitting tops around the belly – Everyone loses weight differently, some faster than others. Loose tops give you the option for it to hang loose around the midsection. You can also tie it up to make it more form fitting as you shed those after-baby pounds.

Off the shoulder dresses or tunics – These come in handy for three reasons.  First, easy to pull down if you are a nursing mother. Also, easy to change out of if you are spilled on.  Second, it’s loose around the midsection as you shed those unwanted after-baby pounds. Last, but definitely not least, you can feel beautiful and dressed up, without sacrificing comfort.
