My Dream Nursing Wear

I never bought any nursing dress for myself. And never use nursing cover eversince I breastfeed my daughter. But still I hope that I can get my Dream Nursing Wear one day.

I’ve browsed thru some of available nursing wear in the market but seems like it doesn’t suit me well. Is not because of the size ( I am not that big, I am a normal size of Asian lady) but the design.. Am I too choosy??

So, how do I breastfeed my daughter in public without nursing wear or cover ?

I am comfortable wearing long blouse / dress for outing . I love jubah so much and my jubah collection is more that my baju kurung &blouse (from simple yet sweet, deluxe, with and without button/zip infront and etc ). So this is the reason why I did not buy any nursing wear as most of is a standard length for t-shirt or blouse . I did find a long nursing blouse but some factors that choose me not to buy it (design/material).I always look for jubah with button /zip in front but most trendy jubah without button. ( or I’m unlucky yet to find it ) . Definitely I will grab if I find nice one with reasonable price . Anyone know where can I get nursing jubah with affordable price?

Can you imagine how I’m going to nurse my daughter while wearing jubah without button at public if the condition are 1) no nursing room 2) I didn’t bring my nursing cover ( I had one but never use). Am I going to ‘selak’ my jubah down from my leg up to my breast even with another layer of long skirt/kain inside ? Oho.. I don’t think so…

So, my available ready to wear “nursing dress” in my wardrobe is jubah/mini jubah with button/zip in front (luckily I have quite a number of it ) and custom made baju kurung with button in front . Thank you KakTini that understand my “fussy” requirement in tailoring my baju kurung and offer me affordable price. Even now, whenever I want to shop new clothes for myself , most important factor to consider is does the attire have opening ( either button or zip) in front ?

Enjoy part of my jubah cum nursing wear collection for outing ( bought during anak dara time)








In my opinion and base on my personal experience, button is not appropriate for nursing wear, especially when you are facing the hungry baby and your hand hurrying unbutton your dress. Moreover, it can be a shameful moment if u forgot to button it back after nursed and somehow your tudung is not covering the ‘precious part’ properly .

Zip functioning wise is easier than button still not a prefect feature for nursing wear. If you are rough user, it might hurt your skin and zip can easily malfunction compare to button. . But both button and zip can be a life safer to replace a nursing wear when nursing in public without a cover and better still compare to ‘adegan selak menyelak’.

That is why if you were ask me , how is my dream nursing wear of course I will say a jubah with proper “window”. I don’t dream for very stylish nursing wear. A comfortable nursing wear that serve the purpose, charming & suit me well is more than enough. Since my tudung is covering upper part of my body, I wo
uld like

1)
A jubah made from chiffon is the best material for me as chiffon is soft and comfy to both baby and myself. Chiffon will also portrait a luxurious look for the wearer.

2) The jubah decorated with sequin/beading all over the legging part.

3) I would love to have French lace on the “window” for breastfeed to hilited the special design there (even nobody can see it).

4) Or may have like “hanging toys” sewn on “window” area for baby to play with while nursing . Just like here but this one is a necklace .I wish this can be sewn on the fabric.

5) Perhaps the sleeve part can be designed with soft arm padding to support my baby’s head and avoid 'lenguh' at mom's arm.

Haha, too much of imagination !

Any fashion designer would like to sponsor my dream nursing wear ? Ahaks…!

Hereby I attached my sketch (yang tak berseni ni) .

Salam Dayah,

wah sudah ade signature.. :D

tak silap last year may b Nov/Dec 2008, kat porg tv9, Busana ada tunjukkan fesyen2 jubah/blouse utk ibu2 yg BF ni.. at both side disisipkan zip.. sangat kemas.. & material dari jenis yg soft & easy to handle.. i tak ingat apa nama butik, but definitely 1 lady has intiate it.. I really love kalo boleh jahit sendiri.. even her koleksi baju kurung pun jenis yg ade zip di bhgn B, sekali imbas tengok memang tak perasan pun ade zip kat situ.. sagt kemas & sesuai utk ibu2..

btw, i love your design.. tp utk yg bertudung senteng, buat ala2 mcm cekak musang pun cantik juga.. @ yg mcm congsam tu..

kakyong said...

salam Dayah,
kakyong bukan cam biasa jer.. tp kalo ikut pengalaman kakyong dok 'merempit' (bloghopp), kalo yg guna background thecutestblogintheblock, ada masa2 tu, background tak kuor.. lambat sgt.. kdg2 dah abis baca entri baru backgrund kuor.. hahah.. sbb kakyong dah selalu jadi camni.. so buat dek jer le.. cuma kalo yg guna background hitam tu yg tak leh nak baca kalo background tak kuor.. sbb depa guna font kaler yg cerah.. memang nampak putih jer blog tu.. tp ade masa2 nyer cepat, sbb tu kakyong kdg2 malas nak komplen.. may b connection ker apa ker yg jd penyebab..

sian lak kat u sbb kena guna IE utk masuk blog kakyong.. bukan apa IE ni safety dia kureng sket..
