My Top 10 Essentials for Breastfeeding

Updated: Aug 29, 2021

Are you a new or soon-to-be mom looking for tools to make your breastfeeding journey EASIER?! If yes, you’d want to keep scrolling through this post. Here is a list of must haves that helped me have a successful journey.


Water Bottles

We all know the number one way to keep up your breastmilk supply is WATER!!! I kept a bottle near me all the time. Our site has a variety of bottles to choose from; stainless steel or BPA free plastic. All of our bottles come designed with empowering breastfeeding quotes.


Breast Pump

If you’re planning on building a stash for while you’re away, you’re gonna want to invest in a breast pump. I used the Medela Swing Single Electric Breast Pump. I had no issues with it and I personally love it. This is great if you’re looking to have some Power Pumping sessions do build your milk stash FAST.

Hands Free Pumping Bra

This product kinda goes hand in hand with the breast pump. If not, be prepared to be holding your pump THE WHOLE TIME. This can become a REAL pain REAL quick. The ones I used can be bought here. They were a dream as I was able to Power Pump, while doing chores, reading a good book, even seeing about my 2 older daughters.


Tommee Tippee Baby Bottles

When it comes to baby bottles, I wanted to ensure Taylor would be able to bottle feed. This way, she can have expressed milk whenever I was away. This was easy as she took to it very well. With my others daughters; Kayhlen and Rylee, I never really put too much thought into the bottles I bought (I just went with the popular brands). But with Taylor, I did my research and found the Tommee Tippee brand, which was perfect. Their nipples has a breast-like shape for natural latch and helps with the transition from breast to bottle. It also flexes just like your breast would which gives your baby a comfortable feel and are super easy to clean.


Booby Butta

Another go to product is nipple cream (sign up to our mailing list to get deals on our upcoming product, Booby Butta). The initial phase of breastd will leave you with VERY sore and cracked nipples. Our nipple balm is made with all natural ingredients and is baby approved. So mamas, there’s no need to worry about wiping it off before you nurse.



The Breastie

Save your precious liquid gold with this next item, our Breastie Milk Saver. These suction to your breast, catching milk you may have lost during letdown. This item has some cool features:

- a suction base, spill proof lid and stopper; so you don’t have to worry about crying over spilled milk.

- lightweight with a capacity of 120ml.

- dishwasher and steamer safe.



Nursing Attire

For nursing at home, nursing bras are super soft and comfortable. Oh! Did I mention they bring sexy mummy back? Make sure to subscribe to our mailing list for in stock deets.

For nursing in public, these tops are cute, yet very funtional. With fashion evolving constantly, there are limitless designs to choose from, designed in a way to be discreet.


Nursing Pads

If you’re not looking to be the mum who’s soaking milk through her clothes while grocery shopping, then this next item will be an essential for you as well. These gorgeous reusable nursing pads are feminine, soft and breathable, yet absorbent. Each pad has four layers; a single bamboo terry layer, a double super absorbent bamboo terry layer and another single layer waterproof PUL fabric. They come in solid pastels or trendy prints. These luxurious pads are also eco-friendly and washable.


Nursing Pillow

If you’re already nursing, you’ll know this next item is a MUST. These pillows are specially contoured to wrap around your baby, yet firm enough to provide support. All breastfeeding moms can attest nursing without this can get quite tiring on the arms. If purchasing this is too much of a stretch, then get any medium sized pillow that’s soft yet firm for your baby.


Lactation Treats

Whether it’s enjoying a cup of tea to start the day, nibbling on cookies during the day, or cozying up at night with a hot cup of cocoa and marshmallow….these were my go to products for increasing my breastmilk supply.

Our line of lactation products include:

- teas

- cookies

- granola

- instant mixes

- capsules


So there you have it! My go-to essential breastfeeding items which helped me A LOT during my breastfeeding journey. I hope you find this post helpful and have as much success as I have.


LOVE,

Dee
