H&M Finally Launches Online Shopping for the USA

HM launches online shipping!

Seeing as how all my spare web-surfing moments (which are few) seem to be spent at these days, I nearly missed the earth-shattering news that H&M has finally launched online shopping for the United States! Life. Is. Beautiful. Head to now to check out the goods for women, men, kids and the home. You can even shop a small selection of H&M's maternity clothes, which were a godsend when I was pregnant (see my review here). Now I'm in the market for nursing-friendly fashions (any suggestions??)

You must check out the home store!! Some very chic and affordable stuff :-)

This makes me SO HAPPY!! At least now I can get my H&M fix without having to drive to Cincinnati. Yay!

Congratulations on your little one!! Kellymom was a godsend when I was first nursing, as well. Regarding nursing-friendly fashions, I found there was really no need for tops that are specifically for nursing. It works just as well to pull your shirt up from the waist or unbutton your button-down blouse (hello, chambray!) to nurse. Shirtdresses, v-neck dresses that have panels that cross across the breast, or cotton scoop neck dresses also worked for me when I wanted to wear a dress. Ladies in my breastfeeding support group also like this blog: Congratulations again! Welcome to motherhood.

Thanks for these suggestions Katie! I had ordered some nursing tops and a dress from Old Navy before giving birth and I must say they're clunky at best, so I've been wearing long camis from H&M that I can just drop the strap off my shoulder and maxi dresses in stretchy fabric with deep v-necks but I need more options and will need cold-weather options soon so I really appreciate your ideas! xo

Second not needing nursing tops. Aerie makes great cami's with built in bras that I liked sleeping in (still had some support but easy to pull down for middle of night feelings). Anything that buttoned or v-necks (American eagle makes nice ones that are inexpensive and not obscenely low!).

Go to Nordstrom and get fitted for a nursing bra. I adore the Anita style 5068. I also like Nordstrom's Cake Lingerie collection.

I bought the BOOB collection dresses and tops. Also try Isabella Oliver nursing clothes. Fab!

Thanks, googling these brands now! Getting to Nordstrom however might be a bit of a challenge lol ;-)

LOL...Love too! For nursing-friendly fashion I love anything button-downed. I practically lived in my button-down chambray shirts. I simply put my little nursing cape and unbuttoned the blouse to breastfeed :-) Target also has some great nursing tanks (they're basically tank tops with a nursing bra built-in.

For nursing bras the brand "Basics" (you can find these at Target too) makes some really comfy and affordable nursing bras.
