Please help me.
I am headed to Blissdom ’09 next weekend, where I need to make a good impression on a great deal of lovely women bloggers. I will have the baby with me, who is still breastfeeding. The conference involves a day and a half of seminars and two cocktail parties. I can’t even get into the issue of how will I change between these events when I don’t have a hotel room (perhaps my cousin, Tricia, will let me use hers?).
Problems: I am breastfeeding. I was a 38DD to begin with. This means I am currently gigantuan in the top area. I am also not a small girl (I wear an XL, usually). I am pretty short. I still have extra baby flab in the belly.
How on earth am I supposed to find a cocktail dress? Or do I REALLY need one? Have I mentioned my baby goes to daycare and that is eating up my budget?
If you are or have been a nursing mama, do you have any suggestions for where to find some good nursing clothes? Or what I might wear that I could nurse easily in?
Also, on a sort of related note, I hate ALL my nursing bras. The one I hate the most is the $60 Bravado I bought at the hospital boutique. I need something that has support, a strap that doesn’t ride way up, and maybe has a tiny bit of padding to keep the girls covered. Ahem.
Thanks for sticking with me, friends. I need help. (In more ways than one.)
