Gearing Up to Nurse on the Go

It’s time to get ready to get back into your workout gear, with only one problem. You’ve got a hungry fussy baby who needs to nurse right this minute! Traditional sports bras really don’t do it when it comes to nursing.

Who else has tried to awkwardly feed their baby wearing a regular sports bra? I have! One side is totally mashed flat, the other side is falling out. Milk is getting everywhere, and baby just wants to eat. Thankfully we have some friends at Running Fit in downtown Ann Arbor who want to help you get the most out of your workout and make nursing on the go easy! They’ve reviewed a couple of the most recent sports bras that also double as a nursing bra on the go. Check out the descriptions below.

The Brooks Fiona

This is another of Brooks' best-selling sports bras; it is their most versatile sports bra, blending comfort and support in a fit that works for nearly any body type–especially active mothers! The Fiona offers minimal, molded cups with moderate stretch that provide not only a natural looking shape, but extremely comforting fit. For mothers on the go, this bra includes front-adjustable straps offering a more customized fit. This is a bra you can expect everything from.

Specifications:

• Impact Level: Medium/High

• Cups: Molded and lightweight while maintaining natural shape

• Materials: 88% polyester, 12% Spandex (cups: 100% Polyester)

• Jackrabbit/Running Fit Style #: 350064-317

The great part is, these bras will work with any shirt you already have. And they will continue to work even after you’re done nursing.

When looking for sports bras that aren't nursing specific, here's a few pointers:

• Look for adjustable straps. Some high impact sports bras have adjustable strap that can be completely undone.

• Look for a deep V cut. These are usually low-impact sports bras, but if they have an overlapping V, they can provide easy access.

• Try them on when you're at your fullest. This will give you an idea of how much support it will provide, as well as the possibility of adjusting it to your nursing comfort.
