Breastfeeding is an important time in a baby’s development. It can also be a time of great discomfort for the mother, with endlessly sore nipples, risk of infection, and the general tiredness that comes with being a new parent.
To help you through this tough time, I’ve put together a list of breastfeeding must-haves. You can see all of these essential products on my Amazon storefront, but I’ve also highlighted a few of them below:
Boobie Bar Superfood Lactation Bars
You’ll find many products designed to promote lactation, including teas and supplements. These bars are a simpler and tastier way to get those beneficial ingredients, including moringa, oats, flaxseeds, and turmeric.
They really do taste great. I recommend Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, but the Peanut Butter bars are delicious as well.
LMNT Keto Electrolyte Powder Packets
It’s important to stay properly hydrated when breastfeeding. That means drinking plenty of water and ensuring you’re getting enough electrolytes. These sachets combine essential electrolytes in tasty and convenient sachets. I recommend Orange Salt. It might not sound like a particularly delectable flavor, but it is!
Kindred Bravely Clea Bamboo Button Down Nursing Nightgown
This is your time to recover, relax, and make sure you and your baby are healthy. So, forget about tight jeans and accessorizing—comfort is the way to go. This nursing nightgown is incredibly soft and cozy, and it’s designed with breastfeeding mothers in mind. If you prefer pajamas to nightgowns, check out this pajama set from the same brand.
Tiny Human Supply Co. Organic Nipple Cream
Your nipples will get sore. They might crack. It won’t be pleasant. But this amazing balm can go some way to soothing and protecting. It’s made from natural ingredients and is both odorless and tasteless, so you don’t need to worry about washing it off when you’ve finished.
Breastmilk Chiller Reusable Storage Container by CERES CHILL
Use these containers to pump and store up to 34 ounces of milk. Just add ice and they’ll keep it chilled for up to 20 hours. They work with most types of pumps.
Postpartum and Breastfeeding Bundle
This postpartum bundle contains several supplements formulated to support postpartum health. Not only are these supplements safe to use when breastfeeding, but they support lactation and may help to keep you and your little one healthy.
The bundle includes a Bone Builder supplement to support bone health, essential vitamins and minerals, and more.
Elvie Stride Hospital-Grade App-Controlled Breast Pump
Small, powerful, quiet, and hands-free—it’s everything you could want in a breast pump. This multi-setting pump is controlled via an app on your phone and is super lightweight.
SILVERETTE Silver Nursing Cups, Silverettes
Made from silver, which is naturally antimicrobial, these nipple cover guards protect your nipples during those tough breastfeeding months. These lightweight guards are handcrafted in Italy from 925 silver (which means it’s 92.5% pure).
Momcozy Warming Lactation Massager 2-in-1, Soft Breast Massager
This massager feels amazing. It’s soft, malleable, and works wonders. Just press it against problem areas and let it do its thing. It gently heats and massages the area to promote milk flow.
