Let’s be honest, heat and hormones aren’t anyone’s idea of a fun summertime combo (not like, say, tequila and limes). If you’re a nursing mom, you’re going to want to wear comfy, cool clothing with easy boob access, right? Right. This list of the best breastfeeding dresses will carry you through the entire summer.

Because babies eat. They eat ALL THE TIME. Round the clock. It doesn’t matter what your schedule looks like, where you’re going, or what you have to do—when it’s time for them to eat, you’ve gotta hustle and drop trou before the hangry screams kick in. And since you certainly aren’t spending your summer indoors at your baby’s beck and call, you need some quality nursing dresses that are cool, comfy, and cute enough for a picnic (or, who are we kidding, the grocery store).

Nursing bras are both necessary and amazing, but postpartum clothes should be flexible and functional too. An added bonus is that a lot of these nursing-friendly dresses below are pregnancy-friendly dresses too, so you don’t have to break the bank for items you’re only wearing for a single trimester.

It’s made from 100% Pima cotton, which means it’s breathable and comfortable and easy to care for—all things new mamas need.
