When should I purchase my nursing bras? My baby is due in December.

A friend of mine told me to purchase only one in my last month, and to go up a bandwidth size, and up a cup size. The reason for buying only one to start is you don't know how big you are going to get once your milk supply comes in, which is about 48 hours after giving birth. By having one you have a bra that you can use the first couple of days. After your milk comes in then you go and buy 3 or 4 bras in the right size, that way you havent't wasted money on bras that don't fit.

Hope this helped

I agree with the above post - just buy one some time in your last trimester. Even after my milk came in, I went down in size(s) because I was retaining so much water while pregnant.
