10 Items All Breastfeeding Moms Need

Breast Pump

[easyazon_link identifier=”B01L2VHW9W” locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]The Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump[/easyazon_link] is probably one of the coolest inventions for nursing moms. When you nurse your baby you’ll put the silicone breast pump on the opposite breast. It creates a small suction that encourages a letdown and collects milk. The best part about this is that it’s hands-free!

Nursing Cover

If you aren’t comfortable nursing in public without a cover then you’ll want to invest in a great cover. [easyazon_link identifier=”B00BUBNZC8″ locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]The Udder Covers Breastfeeding Nursing Cover[/easyazon_link] is awesome! It allows you to feed baby all while having a little bit of privacy.

Milk Storage Bags

If you decide to pump the [easyazon_link identifier=”B006XISCNA” locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags[/easyazon_link] are perfect! They are affordable and keep your milk nice and secure.

Hands-Free Pump Bra

This is a truly amazing invention. I only wish I had bought one sooner! Whether you are a working mom or just pump to have a little milk stash, this [easyazon_link identifier=”B004S8MGGQ” locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]Simple Wishes Hands-Free Pumping Bra[/easyazon_link] is a must have. This bra allows you to multitask all while ensuring you get a pumping session in.

Milk Saver

[easyazon_link identifier=”B001SMBRWO” locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]Milkies Milk Savers[/easyazon_link] are one of the latest inventions that helps to ensure nursing moms don’t waste a drop of milk. Simply slip the milk saver into your bra and anytime your breasts leak, the milk savers will collect the milk.

Disposable Breast Pads

If you want to use disposable pads, I recommend [easyazon_link identifier=”B002TLU5JO” locale=”US” tag=”practmommy-20″]Lanisoh disposable breast pads[/easyazon_link]. I buy them in bulk on Amazon, 4 boxes at a time. Depending on how many you use, they can last a long time. Just remember to replace them OFTEN. Leaving a wet breast pad on will increase your chances of getting Thrush and that is NO FUN!

  1. Posts like this one are very important! I am a mom who breastfed three kids! I saw so many articles about breastfeeding! they are mostly hopeless! This one is good 🙂 Breastfeeding is not that easy! Every woman who is pregnant or a new mom should read something but it must be something good what will make her self-confident and aware of what breastfeeding means! I can’t imagine breastfeeding my both kids if I didn’t read HOW TO MAKE BREASTFEEDING PLEASANT AND EASY guide by S. Urban.

    • It is the bok that made me trying breastfeeding at all! I highly recommend. I was a terrified, pregnant too young and this book saved me and my breastfeeding. It gives you this idea it is not that hard after all and it really is not!
