Summer is here! If you'll be breastfeeding at the beach or pool you may have a few questions. We've got you covered with answers to four common breastfeeding questions mom have about nursing at the pool or beach.

1.) Is breastfeeding protected by law? 
Yes, there are breastfeeding laws in all 50 States. They protect your right to feed your baby anywhere at any time -- covered or uncovered. That includes public or private locations. If you would like to find your state’s breastfeeding laws, this link is an excellent place to start. 

2.) Do I need a special swimsuit to breastfeed in public?
Nursing swimsuits are convenient, but not necessary. You can always use what you have! However, breastfeeding specific swimwear can offer easy nursing access and some bonus coverage. Nursing Queen’s nursing swimsuits feature a lift up front for fast and simple breastfeeding. 


3.) Do I need to use a nursing cover?
No, you are not required to cover while breastfeeding. Nursing specific swimwear often offers coverage if that is something that you are directly seeking. Do what makes you and your baby comfortable! We support you covered or uncovered.

4.) What if someone asks me to “go to the bathroom” or breastfeed elsewhere?
Offering education about these policies can diffuse many situations. You do not need to leave. The law is on your side, Mama. Every summer there are stories of families who have experienced harassment for breastfeeding openly. Knowledge and education of these laws are crucial. We encourage you to search for your state’s breastfeeding laws and codes. Take a screenshot of them with your phone. If you are planning to travel, do an inquiry of those breastfeeding laws too. Some states and countries offer a higher level of protection than others!

What is a dream feed and should I do it?

August 01, 2022

When you have a newborn it may feel like all you do is feed. Sometimes as soon as you’re finished feeding, you get the baby changed and you’re back at it again. They eat a lot -- day and night. And for some little ones, nighttime feedings could continue for up to a year or more if you’re breastfeeding.

How I Picked The Perfect Breast Pump 2022

July 23, 2022

Pumping is painful, time consuming, frustrating and takes away from things that you’d rather be doing. It’s also emotionally draining. I'd ask myself questions like, "Would I be able to bond with my babies if I were exclusively pumping (the answer is YES by the way!)?" So I did my research and found pumps that worked for me and made the process a bit easier. Hopefully this can help you, too!

Sizing

Nursing Queen Size Chart

All of our designs fit true-to-size with an over-sized/relaxed fit (which compensates for extra weight and a larger chest). Our sizes are similar to maternity-wear: order your pre-baby size. If you're between sizes, size down. Typically, the best way to determine your size is to follow your pre-baby size in numbers on the chart (4/6, 8/10, etc). We realize this isn't a "one-size fits all" solution. If you aren't sure, measure your bust, waist, hips and follow the chart. If you get 3 measurements, pick the middle size. 

Plus Sizes: We follow a standard U.S. plus chart. Our plus sizes range from 1X-3X. NOTE: An XXL (in misses) is a size 1X in plus sizing.
