The Perfect Pullover and Hoodie Guide
Feeling overwhelmed by our abundance of nursing-friendly outerwear?
We know that picking the perfect hoodie or pullover can be tricky. After all, everyone’s wants, needs, and climates can vary, so we decided to take the scaries out of your online shopping experience with this handy guide!
From stretchy, bump-accommodating fabric blends to lightweight layers and pump-friendly pullovers, this trusty guide was designed to help you navigate all the unbeatable features that only our breastfeeding-friendly styles can provide!
Best for Warm Winters
If you live in a state (or country!) that doesn’t get very cold but still want to partake in sweater weather, then our Everyday Nursing Hoodie is the perfect pick for you! This lightweight hoodie features a breathable fabric blend that won’t leave you sweltering in the sun while still proving the perfect level of warmth for mildly chilly days.
Best for Cold Winters
If you need heavy-duty protection from the elements, then look no further than our fan-favorite Heavy Hoodie! Thanks to its blankety soft fleece lining, spacious front pocket to keep your hands toasty, plus a cozy lined hood, this best-selling style is your best bet when it comes to enduring those bitter winter feeds.
Best for Pumping
It’s no secret that side access is ideal for pumping mamas, and no pullover makes expressing your liquid gold easier than our Fleece Snap Pullover! Featuring a dual-sided, snap closure nursing access, this snuggly sweater lets you customize your pumping experience. Undo all the snaps for easy accessibility or keep some closed for extra privacy. Need to double pump? No problem! Simply undo both sides to help save time while salvaging every last drop!
Best for Pregnancy
We firmly believe that maternity and nursing wear go hand in hand, so why not invest in versatile styles that can do both? Perfect for accommodating a growing bump, our Lightweight Cotton Hoodie features a stretchy yet sturdy fabric blend designed to expand without losing its shape! Lightweight yet warm, this hoodie is the perfect pick for any pregnant mama who wants her maternity wardrobe to transition from bumpin’ to breastfeeding without missing a beat!
Best for Baby Wearing
Sweater weather is better together- so why not bundle up with your baby in our Harbor Snap Pullover! This warm, fleece lined pullover was designed to work double duty as a traditional nursing pullover AND as babywearing outerwear! All you have to do is pair with your favorite front-facing carrier so you and your little nursling can stay warm, cozy, and close all winter long!
Please note: if you plan to use this pullover for babywearing, we recommend sizing up 1 to 2 sizes depending on the height and weight of your child.
Best for Layering
Hoodies pair perfectly under puffer vests, jackets, and other outerwear, but sometimes it can be hard to find a hoodie that is form-fitting enough to not bunch up under your bundles. That’s why we LOVE recommending our Cloud Hoodie as a base layer for breastfeeding mamas! Thanks to its contoured yet accommodating sleeves and torso area, you can enjoy this staple style alone or stacked with your other winter wear!
Best for Cold Weather Workouts
Anyone who has ever managed to break a sweat in the winter understands the importance of staying dry. Because most pullovers are made with a plush fabric that holds on to moisture, this can ultimately lead to an even chillier experience. That’s why we love recommending our 1/4 Zip Performance Nursing Pullover to all our sporty mamas. Thanks to its moisture-wicking fabric blend, this breastfeeding-friendly style provides the perfect balance between keeping your cool and staying warm.
