Although not glamorous, these are a postpartum gal's best friend regardless of your delivery. Note: get the large regardless of how small you may be.
Came highly recommended by friends, bloggers, and a lactation consultant. Came in handy at the hospital during my c-section and apprehension surrounding breastfeeding - totally worth it!
Treat the girls to the top-rated breast pump. Good on time, comfort, sound, and size. This little device helped relieve pain and begin the milk storage collection.
Leakproof, spill-proof, one-handed use, and a straw equals 100% awesome for keeping new mamas hydrated.
Whether you're breast or bottle feeding, doctors and nutritionists have recommended both fennel and cumin tea for both mom and baby's digestion.
Love grabbing one of these for the mid-night feeding. Sweet and satisfying while supposedly helping the milk supply.
Be prepared for rock hard breasts that will leak at the most inopportune moments. Note: keep stain removal wipes on hand if you do get breast milk on clothing.
I wish I had brought this cream to the hospital for immediate use after the first feeding. Your nipples need any relief they can get. Note: use dish soap to get the stains out from this pesky stuff.
These little silicone pieces of goodness help babies with latch and can save your nipples the early trauma. But beware, it can be a challenge to get baby back on the breast.
Owli Belly Bandit
Ready to start shrinking your waist? Grab a belly band to help with posture and tightening loose skin. Be sure to check with your doctor to find the best time to use it.
Going back to work? Stocking up your freezer supply? Blocked milk duct? This is a comfy, adjustable, supportive nursing bra with stretchy material for various pumps.
I was rather judgemental toward the boob flap bra during the early maternity days, but now I am a true believer. This is an absolute must-have when breastfeeding.
A comfortable and pretty nursing night dress is exactly what the doctor ordered when you're feeling more like a lazy cow than the sexy lace wearing goddess that you once were.
Whether it be Oysho, Chakra, H&M or your favorite maternity wear store, getting a comfy gown that covers your nursing dress helps when your neighbors or the delivery person stops by.
Although not a must-have, if you have any pain or clogged milk ducts along your breastfeeding journey, these hot/cold packs work wonders for relief.
Mochi Milk Catcher
Another nice to have in case you don't want your high milk production to go to waste in the breast pads. The Mochi works like the famous Haaka in that it relieves pain and stores excess milk.
