The Breastfeeding Mum’s Essential Survival Kit Part 2
6. Nursing Tanks
We will all need nursing bras, but in the early postpartum months, you will NOT want to pull up your shirt and show your skin. Thanks gosh for the nursing tank. I have four of these and love. Them they keep your tummy in its place and covered at all times. They are also fantastic for sleeping when you need the support but don't want to have to wear a bra. I have also got the BreastVest which is a great idea. Check it out here.
7. Nipple Creams
Those early weeks = OUCH. Wow I had no idea it could be so painful.
I have tried a few different brand and even Coconut oil. All work well buy my fav is Angel Nipple Butter and also the Angel Bottom Balm for baby. Any serious cracks try the Multi Mum compresses. It works a treat.
8. Drink Water – Glass Water Bottle
As you know breastfeeding mums need a lot of water. Get a cool glass water bottle and carry it around with you when you are out and about.
