THINGS WE MENTIONED
Here is a great video about responsive feeding.
Kellymom is basically an evidence based breastfeeding bible and every nursing mother should know about it!
Our breastfeeding days are behind us, but these were some of our must haves when we were in the thick of it.
I include these Lansinoh ice packs for every shower gift. They are great even if the mother ends up not breastfeeding because your boobs hurt no matter what!
These nursing pads are what cracked nipple dreams are made of.
These soft shell nipple covers aren’t the sexiest thing ever, but they sure are clutch when your nipples are sore!
This manual pump came out after I was done nursing, but I’ve heard so many great things about it, it would be the first thing I bought if I got pregnant again.
Nursing bras are not glamorous either. I loved this Cake Cotton Candy bra for the beginning because it is so stretchy. Soma had ones I liked once everything, ahem, settled down.
