Here is a useful nugget of information to help celebrate World Breastfeeding Week that you may want to share with your students and clients in childbirth classes. Did you know that Nordstrom will convert any bra into a nursing bra for a small alteration fee of $10? A mother does not even have to have purchased the bra from Nordstrom.
Nordstrom has long been a favorite of mine for their expert bra fitters, but this service now allows women to have their favorite bras converted into a nursing bra with very little expense and quick turn around. Many families are faced with significant expenses when having a baby, and this simple service can help new mothers transition to the breastfeeding relationship in comfort and style, wearing their favorite bras. Part of a successful nursing relationship is feeling comfortable feeding a baby in many locations, and having clothes, including nursing bras, that fit, feel good and make nursing easier and more comfortable is a key factor. Do confirm with your local store before sharing with classes, but I called several locations around the country and received 100 percent confirmation that this is indeed a service they offer. Thanks Nordstrom!
