Need an Indian outfit for a wedding, but conducive for breastfeeding?
I’m attending an Indian family wedding soon. I’m not in the wedding party, but would like to wear an Indian outfit for the daytime portion. However, I will have a 4 month old to breastfeed and wanted to know if anyone can recommend what I should wear. I would like to wear a sari – any advice to give? We are going shopping on Saturday for this.
What color sari would look good on someone who’s blond with green eyes and fair skin?
Myla – that’s a poor answer! I said it’s a family wedding and if you know anything about Indian weddings, the ceremonies can run 3 hours. This one starts at 8am and goes until the evening reception.
A quick google search (sari draping breastfeeding) turns up several pages that emphasize how easy it is to breastfeed in a sari. (And googling just ‘sari draping’ has lots of info on various draping styles, so you can find the one that works best.)
Or you could do a Salwar Khameez — with a loose-fitting top it will be easy to lift for disreet nursing.
