No matter your age or lifestyle, one thing is certain: you can never go wrong with a comfy hoodie. But when you’re the mama of a newborn, cozy is even more key, especially when breastfeeding. The best thing to have in your postpartum wardrobe are nursing-friendly pieces so you can effortlessly breastfeed whenever you need to. In particular, a nursing hoodie sweatshirt is a must for running errands or just lounging around at home.

They also are super versatile and come in so many colors and patterns so you can pick one that you’ll really love. Below, we’ve rounded up the best hoodies to make your life as a new parent a lot cozier.
