I still have 70 some days til our precious baby girl gets here but I was wondering what kind of shirts to buy to feed discreetly in public? I will have a cover but what is the most comfortable shirt you have found to wear with breastfeeding? TIA :)

I use the twol shirt method. Tank top underneath a t-shirt

Adjustable strap tank tops so I can pull them down without stretching out the neckline. Then if I'm wearing a shirt over that I can just lift it up and be completely covered. I don't use anything else to cover unless baby is asleep latched on.

Me too, I use a nursing tank under any shirt I feel like wearing, just as long as it's a shirt I can easily pull up over my breast, which all of my shirts do. :-)

I wore all kinds of shirts. THe trick: Never tuck in. Pull UP, never ever down. Baby covers the bottom half, shirt covers the top.

Yep! A tank top under a shirt is what I did.

I do this also but I bought the men's ribbed tank tops (like the undershirt kind). They go back to normal shape when washed. Plus they hug your body. Nursing tanks always felt to me like I was wearing 2 shirts and it seemed bulky. With the ribbed tanks I barely notice the tank.

Strap less dresses and shirts to me are the best. All I have to do is pull out and nurse.

And I've never used a cover.
