The Breastfeeding Mum’s Essential Survival Kit Part 1
Nursing Angels Must Have for Breastfeeding Kit Part 1
Your arms will tire quickly from holding the baby no matter how little they are. I've nursed 3 babies and used nursing pillows with each one. We know some women swear they can do without them, but not me. It's so much more comfortable to have one.
2. Nursing Cover
If you want to breastfeed in public and you are modest like me, a nursing cover is essential. There any many different cool colours and patterns to cool from.
3. Breast Pump
If you ever want to go out while you are nursing, a breast pump is paramount. There are dozens of different kinds to choose from, but we always love the double electric. You can express in 10 minutes what usually takes the baby 40 minutes to do.
Out top brands are Medela, Ameda, Spectra and Avent.
Many mums will leak in those early months. Do yourself a favor and have several pairs of these on hand to help. We like the bamboo material or disposable types.
5. Nursing Tea
At some point all mums stress about their milk supply. There are dozens of home remedies out there and teas and tinctures and cookies. But we always found Fenugreek tea or a tea with a blend then included fenugreek to be the best option. Drink a few cups each day and soon your milk will be flowing.
