The Maya Nursing Wrap Cardigan

The Maya will quickly become a staple in any expectant or nursing mama’s wardrobe. This comfortable, lightweight top can be worn over a tank as both an open-front cardigan and a wrap-style sweater. Transforming this piece is a breeze; snaps on both shoulders create your preferred look in a matter of seconds. An added bonus, there’s a hood to keep you extra warm on a chilly day!

For the perfect nursing outfit, wear this wrap over the Simply Sublime Nursing Tank. Simply undo the Maya’s snaps, and the stretchy, gentle fabric serves as a built-in nursing cover.

The Clara Criss-Cross Nursing Top

You probably adore your infinity scarves, and now you can own an equally loveable infinity cardigan! Any expectant, postpartum, or breastfeeding mom is sure to love the Clara Top, a nursing shirt featuring a criss-cross design. Easy access openings and flowing fabric allow for discreet nursing. Plus, the soft material and roomy fit make this an extremely comfy option for the postpartum period.

Like the Maya, this top pairs well with the Simply Sublime Nursing Tank for a complete breastfeeding-friendly ensemble. Mix and match the colors of your Sublime Tank and Clara Top to ensure your nursing wardrobe is both comfortable and fashionable.
