The Boppy Nursing Pillow is one product you’ve probably been told about by all of your mom friends. It allows you to easily breastfeed your baby without having to hold all of their weight or use bed pillows that you have to constantly adjust. It’s also great to use for propping the infant, tummy time, or sitting.
Breastfeeding and pumping can leave your nipples cracked and sore. Having a good nipple cream can help prevent some of the pain. This cream from Earth Mama is lanolin-free and safe for nursing, so you won’t have to worry about washing it off before your baby feeds.
You will leak, a lot. Make sure you don’t wake up with soaked sheets or go out in public and start leaking through your shirt. This pack comes with 6 washable pairs so you can always have a set to wear and won’t have to worry about keeping disposables stocked.
Don’t let any of that precious liquid gold go to waste! If you’re going to be pumping at work or will be traveling, milk storage bags are perfect for building up your stash so baby can still have milk when you’re not with him/her. You can pump directly into these bags to make things easier.
