11 Breastfeeding Essentials For Every Nursing Mom

It saddens me to see moms giving up on breastfeeding because they have no idea on how to make it work. Let me share with you all my favorite breastfeeding essentials.

The truth is, just like any other parenting skills, breastfeeding comes with a lot of trial and error.

You dont have to buy all of these before the baby comes, but at least you know that there are products available to ease your nursing discomfort.

Your nipples are going to be sore, cracked or they might even bleed from non-stop nursing and cluster feedings.


Do you know that your breastmilk is an excellent cure for sore nipples? Yes! Just squeeze and apply some breast milk lavishly over your nipples and let it air dry.

Leaky boobs? This was something that never crossed my mind. It was shocking when I woke up to a wet shirt and soaking sheets.


Stick a nursing pad to your boobs! Nursing pads are made of an absorbent material that you just tuck inside your bra, and it takes care of leaky boobs.

Nursing bras are essential, and they are specially designed to support your ever-growing breasts and holds them in place without drooping.


I know some babies just hate being covered. As I said, wait till the baby comes and see what best suits you and your baby's persona. If you like the idea of a nursing cover check this out.


I did not like the idea of lifting my shirt every time I wanted to feed, so I bought some button-down shirts that I lived in throughout my glorious breastfeeding days.
