I'm sending H out today to get me.some decent nursing tops as i don't really have anything suitable. I've said for him to go to mothercare and h&m as i know the stores in bluewatr have a bit of a range. Is there anywhere else i'm not thinking of that might stock nursing clothes?

I didn't really use nursing tops, I found them a bit of a faff or they were very mumsy so I just bought £1 vests from
Primark, wore a top over it and pulled top up and vest down
Mamas and papas have nursing tops too. To be honest I found the best option was to get a couple of nursing vests from mothercare and wear them under regular clothes- pull up your top and undo the vest, then the top over the vest covers the top bit if boob and your baby's head covers the rest. The vest stops you exposing too much tummy. I had a couple of specific nursing tops but found them a bit useless as my boobs grew to a J when my milk came in, and most of the boob holes in nursing clothes weren't that big!

Ok thats great, nice and easy for H to get in that case. I think i thought i'd struggle with BFand revert to bottles quite quickly, so never really thought as far as nursing clothes, but she's been feeding like a trooper!

Like others I found specific nursing tops to be a bit faffy. I usually wear a nursing vest (HotMilk from Debenhams) under another vest and lift the top vest up and unclip the nursing vest (as CP says, you can also use a normal vest to do this).
If you are at home and not worried about exposing boob, you can use a top with little buttons at the front to whip out a boob.
