I like this more than Lanolin cream and feel like it heals my nipples more quickly. If they start to feel sore/tender I use this a couple times and they immediately feel better.
I use these and love them.
The Boppy Pillow is helpful to support your arms while breastfeeding. This can also be used to help baby with tummy time and learning to lift their head.
This pump is great to use for hand expression or to catch milk leaking from the opposite breast while breastfeeding.
This is such a great pillow for tandem breastfeeding of twins. It is also a really comfortable pillow to sleep with in the hospital. I LOVE this pillow.
This nursing pillow is inflatable, very light weight, and is easy to use. It’s nice because you can deflate it to be very compact, which is much easier to pack up for delivery or to put in your diaper bag.
I highly recommend being fitted for bras by a professional bra fitter. I really like Bra Fittings by Court. Courtney also has an online bra store called Bosom Besties that has a great bra size calculator with videos on how to correctly measure yourself. It is safe to wear underwire bras while breastfeeding, you just have to make sure that they fit properly and don’t put pressure on your breast tissue. Bosom Besties has a good variety of bras in a huge variety of sizes. Plus it has FREE shipping and FREE returns.
I really like this nursing bra. It is very comfortable. I really like underwire bras because of the support and this is a great option for those with large breasts.
I love this bra. It fits really well and is a great bra for a variety of breast sizes. Plus it is so pretty. I love having such pretty nursing bras.
This is a great sports bra. It is comfortable and supportive. This bra comes a bit big, so order a size down from normal.
This bra is a great nursing bra for those first couple weeks postpartum as your breasts regulate milk supply and size. Get fitted for this bra about 2 weeks before your due date.
Simple Wishes Supermom Bra (nursing and pumping)
Can be used as a regular nursing bra and then converts to a hands-free pumping bra. If you are going to be pumping for work, school, or for any reason, you need a hands-free nursing bra.
Great to use under clothing so that abdomen stays covered when lifting shirt to nurse.
La Mere Clothing is a Mama run company that has some incredible breastfeeding friendly clothing with hidden zippers. The shirt above is my favorite. It is light weight, comfortable, super cute, and you can’t tell that it is a breastfeeding shirt. They have shirts, tanks, sweatshirts, dresses, and a jumpsuit.
These camisoles are extremely stretchy and comfortable. Because of their stretch you can easily pull the top down to breastfeed. When used with a shirt over top this leaves your back/abdomen covered while feeding. They are inexpensive and also available at Costco.
Covers abdomen while nursing, another great bonus is that after delivery it helps hold everything in while muscles and organs are returning to their normal positions.
This class has literally saved my life as a mom of newborn twins. I wish I had learned all of these things with my first child because life with a newborn would have been SO MUCH BETTER. This class taught me so many great skills and now my twins take great naps and sleep 6-8 hours straight at night (at 11 weeks old or 8 weeks adjusted age since they were 3 weeks early). I highly recommend this class. Use code ANNA10 for 10% off this class and any of Little Dreamers Sleep Training Guides.
This is a great sound machine for travel. You can use it in the car, on a plane, at the store, at home, or at Grandma’s house. I keep it in my diaper bag so that I have it for naps on the go and it has been amazing. I can’t wait to travel with it.
These blinds are a great size and come in a travel bag. They work really well and help to make any room a darker place for kids to be able to sleep. I love using these when we are traveling or even at Grandma and Grandpa’s house to make nap time easier. They are a good size and easy to convert to fit many sizes of windows.
I bought the Ollie Swaddles Bundle and got 2 swaddles to use for The Twins. They have been amazing. I love how easy they are to use and how well they calm down the babies and help them sleep. Use this link for 10% off your order.
I love this white noise machine. It is actually a fan so the noise is constant and not a recorded sound that repeats. Having this in my room has really helped The Twins sleep better and it has helped me sleep better at night. Win, win.
I got these for my daughters bedroom and put them (I used 2 panels) behind her blinds to make her room darker for sleeping. Now between these blackout shades, blinds, and blackout curtains her room is nice and dark for nap-time and a 7pm bedtime during the sunshiny summer months. They also helps to keep her room cooler in the summer.
Everyone needs one of these. As a parent there will come a time when you have pee, pooh, spit-up, vomit, and/or food on the carpet or couch that you will need to clean and this is the way to do it. It is AMAZING.
I have 4 of these. They are very handy when a blowout happens away from home or when you go swimming.
Everyone should have these. Babies/kids of all ages can play with these. My 2.5 year old loves these and so do my newborn twins.
I use this as diaper rash ointment. I tried Dr. Smiths Ointment and Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and didn’t like them very much, they didn’t seem to work very well. A friend told me about this and it is incredible.
I use this to warm breastmilk and to cook awesome meals (it makes cooking chicken and steak super easy and they taste amazing).
I LOVE being able to see my daughter while driving in the car, this mirror is great. I wish I had gotten this sooner.
