When new moms bring their bundle of joy into the world, they often get tons of clothes for the baby, but don’t think that if they are nursing, they might need some new wardrobe pieces themselves. When it comes time to look for them, you often stumble across a lot of specialty pieces that are pricy and not even close to affordable for the new mom that needs them. If you have some time and some sewing skills, you can make many of your own nursing clothes. Here are some free patterns for nursing clothes to get you inspired!
