Maternity & Nursing Gear

It can be tricky to find maternity and nursing wear in Winnipeg if you don’t know where to look. Here’s a list of places to check out! Or see my page on where to rent breast pumps and get galactagogues (herbs to increase breast milk supply).

 Maternity Wear

  • Bump Maternity
  • Thyme (St Vital & Polo Park)
  • Motherhood Maternity (includes plus sizes)
  • Old Navy (St. Vital & Polo Park)
  • Target
  • BumbleWee Nursing Wear is an online store based right here in Winnipeg. Owner Denise tells me “we have free pickup for Winnipeggers, and have a no hassle return/exchange policy if our customer is not happy with the style or fit or anything at all really.  We have a fantastic selection of nursing/maternity tops, casual and formal dresses, pjs, bra’s etc.  Many are imported from the US or Singapore.”

Nursing Bras & Other Nursing Apparel

Do yourself a favour – the first time you buy a nursing bra, go somewhere that offers fitting services!

 Pregnancy, Birth & Parenting Books

  • McNally Robinson
  • Chapters
  • Coles
  • The Winnipeg Public Library has almost every book you could ever want! Here’re some of my faves.

Baby Slings & Carriers

  • Check out the Winnipeg Babywearers group. They have a lending library of slings, carriers, etc., that members can access so you can “try before you buy”.
