I’ve been breastfeeding for more than two years now, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my experience thus far, it’s that I hate nursing bras.

I was never blessed with a buxom bosom, but I always thought that once I was pregnant, and then nursing, I would have the voluptuous breasts I dreamed of as a prepubescent teenager. Alas, whatever entity is in charge of doling out the good sized mams must have overlooked me. Even when my milk came in, and I was engorged, I still sat on the fence between a B cup and a C cup.

Back to my hatred of nursing bras. Whoever designed these apparently had no regard to those of us less endowed. The same level of support necessary for the larger-breasted ladies is not necessary for us smaller gals. Nursing bras were eating me alive with their 2 inch wide straps. I have no use for four clasps in the back, they just make it harder for me to get dressed. I tried to find a nursing bra that was cute, even *gasp, * sexy. The sales lady told me she had something that might fit me in a D or E cup, even after I told her I’m a 34 B. Either she doesn’t understand how bras work, or did not have a firm grasp on the alphabet.

I don’t want to sew my sleeves to anything again. I took the plunge, and am quite pleased with the results, so I thought I’d share this easy tutorial. This DIY works for any sized bra, therefore, any sized lady.

Without further ado, the nursing bra conversion for the craft-challenged mama:

Here’s what you’ll need:
– A regular bra of your size. I used a wireless. Read my note below regarding bra types.
– Thread in a color to match your bra
– Nursing bra clasps. You can buy them here.
– Sewing needles. I needed more than one. I may have broken a few.
– Elastic. I bought mine here.
– Scissors
– Time: The first bra I sewed took me about an hour. I also made some mistakes and had to redo some things. Subsequent bras took anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.

It’s also a good idea to figure out what type of knot to use. This is the knot I used to start, and this is what I used for a finishing knot. If you’re a craft failure like me, you’ll want to practice on something before you start on your bra. Once you get it, it’s easy, I promise!

What's your reaction to this Filipina Nurse giving a patient permanent brain damage? | Yahoo Answers

The fault lies with both the hospital and the nurse. The hospital should have made certain that only properly trained nurses were assigned to that ward. The nurse should have told her supervisors that she wasn't trained for that job and therefore should not be assigned there. If common sense were used. this incident wouldn't have happened.
