Learning to breast feed was one of the most difficult things about being a new mom for me. I knew that I wanted to breast feed from the moment I found out I was pregnant. It was hard and painful and I felt like I was never going to get the hang of it. I learned early that having the best products makes all the difference. Here are the 5 items that helped me rock at being a breast feeding mom!
1. Boppy Nursing Pillow
The Boppy worked great for me while my baby was small. It helped position him in the perfect nursing position. It has a removable cover that is machine washable so cleaning it is fast and easy. When my baby got bigger I loved using the Boppy for tummy time and eventually to help stabilize him in a sitting position. The Boppy is always the first thing I recommend to an expecting friend!
2. Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover
Babies do everything on their own schedule especially eat! Having an easy to use reliable cover makes nursing in public comfortable for you, baby, and everyone else. We love the Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover. It's made of breathable 100% cotton so you can use it in any season. It comes in fun fabrics so you can show your personal style with all of your baby gear!
3. Bella B Nipple Butter
Bella B Nipple Nurture helps soothe cracked and sore nipples. The first weeks of breast feeding you are trying to figure it out and so is your body. This Nipple butter is plant based and all natural so you know it's safe for you and your baby! Check out all of Bella B's great products here
4. Comotomo Bottles
Comotomo bottles are as close to a boob as you can get! For me it was nice having my baby take a bottle occasionally so that my husband could bond with the baby over feeding time and if I needed to be gone for more than 2 hours I knew my baby would take it. Comotomo Bottles are made of 100% BPA Free Medical Grade Silicone and are easy to clean!
Reusable breast pads are your best friends the first month to year after your baby is born. Most moms leak and if your like me you leak a lot. It's nice having reliable breast pads that you don't have to worry if they are doing their job. Reusable pads are great money savers and are comfortable. Bamboobies are ultra soft and are machine washable.
