 That's what I did for all of mine....I think I bought one nursing bra my 1st. time BF and after that just reg. bras and lift.

Quoting Janet:

I had nursing bras. I paid big money for them. You really don't have to buy them. It is just as easy to lift your bra when you nurse if not easier. Get a bra with stretch.

Yes, it's harder getting them unhooked then it is just lifting them up.

I have wondered this too!  One friend swears that camis are best, while the other one swears by nursing bras.

I agree. You never know how much they will end up growing. The maternity stores are really helpful with this sort of thing though. 

Quoting SlapItHigh:

I would get fitted for one afterwards. Maybe order a size up for now.

Get the one that fits right now for the right kind of support...actually, get 2. You'll have to go up another size when your milk comes in, and probably need more than 2 by then.

That's the way I did it, only I changed sizes a couple of times while I was pregnant, so I was ALWAYS buying another bra!
