August is National Breastfeeding Month and we want to help all of the new mamas out there with their feeding experiences. While not every new mom breastfeeds their baby, for those trying to there are plenty of products to make the experience smoother and easier for both you and your baby. Ahead, we’ve rounded up some top products for breastfeeding including nursing bras, milk warmers, and so much more. And if you’re not breastfeeding you can still benefit from some of these too. Happy National Breastfeeding Month!
Breastfeeding takes a toll on your skin, but a nipple shield is a quick solution for preventing any chafing, cuts, soreness, and more.
Moms who are breastfeeding (or not!) deserve to be as comfortable as possible. This best-selling bra is not only stretchy and breathable but it’s designed to give your baby easy access to your breasts for feeding.
To help keep your baby comfortable while feeding, consider propping them on a nursing pillow. This will also keep your baby’s neck safe and sturdy as you breastfeed.
If you’re not using a nipple shield, you’ll likely need some nipple cream to use daily. This formula helps calm down any inflammation that’s a result of feeding and it also helps prevent any future chafing.
When you need a little extra help pumping milk, invest in an electric breast pump. It’s minimal work on your end and helps pump enough milk for future feedings.
Sometimes you have to feed your baby on the go, and if you seek a little privacy, this car seat cover makes your life so much easier. It transforms into a nursing cover and doubles as a shopping cover for when your baby comes along.
If you’re not producing as much milk as you’d like, consider taking a daily supplement. This vegan herbal supplement supports breast milk supply to help you have an effortless breastfeeding experience.
When you’re nursing, leaking happens. These soft bamboo pads help clean up any unexpected spills, and they can be placed inside your shirt to hide any visible leakage.
Rather than heating up your stove at all hours of the day, pop your breast milk and bottles into this electric warmer. It’ll take care of it in a few minutes and warm your baby’s milk to an ideal temperature.
When shields and nipple cream aren’t enough, breast ice packs are the next best solution. Help soothe your breasts with these ice packs that fit perfectly around your nipples.
