10 Breastfeeding Essentials for Nursing Moms

Breastfeeding isn’t always easy but I’m here to make it a little bit easier as you prepare to nurse your new baby. As a mom of three, I’m sharing 10 breastfeeding essentials. These are my favorite items for nursing moms. 

Note, I’m a nursing and a working mom, so these items are right for me but may not be what you need in your situation. I’d love to hear what you loved / didn’t need in the comments below. 

I welcomed my third baby last month and breastfeeding, while easier than with my first, was a bit more challenging than it was with my second baby.

For starters, my nipples hurt again! Thankfully I knew this would pass and was able to pull supplies from my toolkit that allowed me to continue on with a little less pain. 

If you find yourself struggling to nurse your baby, I highly recommend scheduling a visit with a lactation consultant, even better if they are registered as an IBCLC.

I visited one with my oldest baby and learned a ton of tips on latching, as well as received peace of mind for how many ounces he was typically getting during a feeding. Most hospital networks will have one and most insurance will cover it.
