Inang’s Collection Nursing Wear Review

Clothes For Breastfeeding Moms

Ciao bella! Breastfeeding mom ka ba? Are you looking for stylish and affordable nursing tops and dresses? Nakita mo ba online ang Inang’s Maternity and Nursing Wear pero di ka pa sure kung worth it bang bumili ng clothes specifically for breastfeeding? Well, read on.

Inang’s Collection

First of all, hindi ito sponsored post. Gusto ko lang i-express ang appreciation ko sa beautiful couple owners ng Inang’s Maternity and Nursing Wear. Eight months na ako into my breastfeeding journey with my second child, and until now, sinusuot ko pa rin ang Inang’s tops and dresses ko (although medyo maluwang na yung size ko kasi medyo pumayat na ako…yes). Yung maganda naman sa Inang’s Nursing Wear ay kahit say, lumiit man ang size mo di naman sayang ang money kasi ideal naman na loose-fitting ang nursing tops, at least based on my experience ( have you ever experienced clogged ducts? OMG.).

Benefits of Wearing Nursing Clothes

So, why is it a good idea to buy nursing clothes? For me, pag lumalabas kami ng family ko, I really nurse in public. In the Philippines, the weather is really humid. My baby doesn’t really like to be covered (unless malakas enough ‘yung A/C and hindi siya naiinitan). Inang’s tops and dresses are designed in such a way that you can nurse your baby na hindi ka ma-eexpose. Meaning, tago ang chest, tago ang tummy, head lang ni baby ang kita. So kahit walang nursing cover, in my experience, kaya na. If you prefer naman na may cover, meron ring nursing covers si Inang. Cute rin designs, mine was blue with mga balloons ganon. Ideal na you wear a nursing bra underneath if you’re namamasyal sa labas. So for me, it’s really convenient to wear nursing clothes.

Share ko lang yung mga pictures ko while wearing Inang’s nursing wear. I’m a size large. Petite lang rin ako, a little more than 5 feet tall.

Nursing Wear
I’m the one on the left. I attended my sister’s graduation. I’m wearing a maroon off-shoulder dress…because UP. I also wore a maroon headband. #wearyourschoolcolors
Nursing Wear (Inang's Collection)
Two months old dito si baby, I’m wearing a dress. Gusto ko yung floral print ng dress na ‘to. Hindi ako masyadong nag-accessorize, gold watch lang. Diba nacocover nang maayos?
Nursing Wear (Inang's Collection)
Three months na si baby dito. I like the print of the dress, it reminds me of Kate Spade. I’m also wearing Fitflops. Para comfy.
Nursing Wear (Inang's Collection)
Burger night at WenM Cafe. I just paired my Inang’s nursing top with blue leggings from Cotton On and white Nike canvas slip ons.
Nursing Wear (Inang's Collection)
Bon Vogage party. I’m wearing a purple ribbed nursing dress then I put a silk floral skirt over it.
Nursing Wear (Inang's Collection)
Tuscany, Italy. Autumn yung weather so I paired my Inang’s top with a white blazer, drawstring jeans from Giordano and ankle boots from BCBG. Five months na si baby dito.

Thanks for viewing my photos! Diba masaya rin fumashion ‘pag mommy? Yung maganda sa Inang’s nursing wear, di mo na masyadong iisipin ang outfit combinations.

Super nice rin ng mga owners, they will answer your questions and help you with the ordering process. I bought na in bulk using the Shopee app para cash on delivery.

Aveeno Baby Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash (Review)

Are you looking for a mild and gentle cleansing wash for your baby or toddler? Check out my review of Aveeno Baby Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash.

My toddler is allergic to peanuts, eggs, cotton fluff and dog/cat fur. My son’s allergy doctor told me that he should bathe with unscented soap and use unscented shampoo and that we should not use scented fabric conditioner. Perfume is not allowed either. She recommended Dove soap or Perla. I used Dove soap on him and he did not develop any reactions towards it. He smelled good even after a whole day of playing. However, I wanted to use something else that’s specifically made for babies. Since I also have a one-month-old baby, I wanted to use a product that both of them can share.

My husband bought the Aveeno Baby Cleansing Therapy Moisturizing Wash from the Johnson & Johnson store in Manila and I tried it on my two children. It is quite expensive at Php 300+ for 236ml (8 fl. oz) but I think it’s worth it. A little goes a long way! The consistency is creamy, and you only need to use one to two squirts to clean the entire face and body. I also use it as a shampoo. I also like that it is fragrance-free, dye-free, and alcohol-free.
It moisturizes as well, so I did not need to put lotion on my toddler’s skin (which is a good thing, since he’s not allowed to have lotion either). This product is Made in the USA, so it is assumed to be a high-quality product. It also claims to be pediatrician recommended and it is accepted by the National Eczema Association. I also use this on my one-month-old baby, and it is gentle enough on his delicate skin.

Would I recommend it? Yes. Would I repurchase? Yes! 

BUT, If you like your baby wash to smell more “scented” or “perfumy”, this product is not for you.
