About Us


Welcome to Milk Nursingwear, where we are passionate about designing fashionable and functional clothing that makes your nursing and pumping experience easier -- and more stylish!

I am Elisa Minsk Hartstein, founder of Milk Nursingwear and mother of four children, all of whom were breastfed for at least a year. I am also a businesswoman, have an MBA from Columbia University, and spent years working in corporate America.

It was during that time that I began having children, and the idea for Milk Nursingwear was born. When I was pumping at work and feeding at an onsite daycare, I was unable to find professional clothing that also enabled me to easily pump throughout the day. I also struggled to find dresses for weddings and special occasions that enabled me to breastfeed without having to retreat to the bathroom to undress and feed. I realized that there had to be a better solution for mothers, for women, and I set out to create it.

At Milk Nursingwear, our goal is to design pieces that look so good, you will want to wear them long after you stop nursing – and many customers tell us that they do! Our styles help take the stress out of nursing in public, pumping at work, and breastfeeding anywhere that you may go.

For over 10 years, we have been designing fashionable, high-quality clothing for nursing and pumping moms. One thing that sets us apart from mass merchants who offer nursing styles is that we specialize in nursingwear designs: It is all that we do, and we do it well. Nursingwear is a functional garment and the placement, size, and types of nursing openings used are important. There are no zippers or snaps on our nursing openings meaning there is nothing complicated to fuss with. The nursing accesses on each of our styles are well-tested, easy, and discreet.

Many of our nursing dress and top styles can be worn throughout your pregnancy (look for the “dual pregnancy and nursing” icon throughout our website), and all of our pieces are stylish enough to be worn long after your nursing days are through.

Read through our thousands of customer reviews from over half a million mothers, and you will see that we understand nursing mothers’ needs.
