What Every Badass Breastfeeding Mama Needs.

What Every Badass Breastfeeding Mama Needs.

We've gone through our list and checked it twice.  Below are the 10 things every pregnant mom planning to breastfeed and/or pump needs on her list.  

Breastfeeding-Friendly Clothing. There are not tons of cute and functional nursing style clothes. Here are a few that we like, the price tags range from $-$$$$

A large beautiful water bottle. Breastfeeding demands quite a bit from mom, the least which is hydration! So, why not invest in a beautiful water bottle for mom to use while nursing.  She can keep it and use it for wine later on... just a thought.

Breast milk storage bags. If you're a pumping mom you can never have enough storage bags.  We really like the Kiinde system or the Ardo milk storage bags, they have a temperature sensor on the bag for warming.

Millies Milk-Savers to catch every last drop from the side you're not feeding on. 

An awesome breastfeeding/pumping bra not only does it's job but also makes you feel attractive again. Some of the bras we like are:

Lactialites for pumping in the middle of the night without turning on the light.  You can pump your midnight session without leaving the room or turning on a side light and disturbing your partner.

Silverettes or Motherlove Nipple Cream to help relieve soreness or dry, cracked skin.

Milkful Lactation Bars, they're a great healthy snack that encourages boosted milk production

A good Steam Bag, we prefer Ardo's steam bag because it goes along with the pump and bags that our whole team use.

A quality Breast Pump.  Our choice is the Ardo Calypso.  It's a Swiss made pump that is extremely small yet powerful.  It's the ultra-silent breast pump winner and can go anywhere in the world without a transformer.  Best yet, it's free through most insurance.

As always, thank you for spending time with us and we hope our blog was useful.  Please follow up on Facebook and Instagram for additional tips, tricks and support.
