Due to a combination of dodgy finances, lack of house space and impending Xmas doom, I am avoiding the charity shops and car boot sales at the moment except for essentials, like clothing for small one.

It’s left me a bit short of inspiration for Magpie Monday this week, so I thought I’d write a joint post across my 3 websites and go window shopping online. The online charity shops not as cheap as shopping in person, but you can still get a bargain.

MilkChic – Stylish Clothes for Breastfeeding Mums:
I did a post on wrap dresses earlier in the week so here are my pick of the options at Oxfam’s online shop…Some great jewel colours, and a fabulous metallic polka dot print too!
Cancer Research Online are slightly cheaper, and seem to have quite a lot of brand new Red or Dead items at the moment, so well worth a look. I thought these two dresses with button down fronts would work well for breastfeeding.

They also had some nice cropped cardis, which are perfect as a quick breastfeeding cover-up at this time of year. Wear a top that pulls down underneath and lift up the cardi to breastfeed in comfort and warmth. The fake fur version is right on trend!

    A nice selection. I wish I'd thought of using cropped cardis when I was still breastfeeding!
