Time to layer up, mama! Winter is finally here, which means sweaters and hoodies are in order–and that also applies to all the nursing mamas out there.

How can this be, you wonder? After all, breastfeeding-on-the-go means you need nursing shirts with easy access to the boob—but is breastfeeding even compatible with warm, wintery tops? The answer is yes. Many brands have designed sweaters with the breastfeeding mom in mind as well as super cute nursing hoodies that keep you comfy while feeding baby. Perfect for colder temps, these tops have strategically placed openings for your little one to easily get a little nip while you both remain warm and cozy. And for that, we are thankful! I mean, breastfeeding is hard enough, so having a variety of options for warm nursing tops certainly helps.

Without further ado, here are 7 nursing sweaters you should snag right now before they fly off the shelves.
