Nursing your newborn is unconditionally heartwarming and one of the purest bonding experiences for a mother and her child. Many of us anticipated breastfeeding to be an easy task. After all, mommies have been acing it for ages. But once you get into the flow of breastfeeding, you realize that it’s a lot more complex than it seems.
New moms often run into problems of poor latching, low supply of milk, or even the unexpected milk-spills that leave your clothes damp and messy. From getting through the trials of finding the right knack to secure your baby to the sore tips of overworked nipples, all of these predicaments can make this process a tad bit uncomfortable.
Babies are quite sensitive and delicate. They can easily pick up moods and vibrations. Therefore, it is vital for a nursing mom to be relaxed and happy to make this whole process cozy and comfy for both the mommy and her munchkin. We’ve combined a list of 4 nitty-gritties that are every mommy must-haves in their nursing kit.
A nursing pillow will turn out to be your best friend during your breastfeeding days. These pillows provide a comfortable space for your baby to scoop into while breastfeeding. Also, it helps to raise your baby up to the right height of your breasts which makes it easier for babies to latch and drink milk contentedly.
A breast pump will come in handy when you need to be away from your baby. If you’re working or traveling, or even if you just want to grab a few hours of ‘me’ time, you can always use a breast pump to store your milk. This will ensure that your baby stays well-fed while you’re away.
Nursing pads are a savior when you’ve got those unexpected leaks of breast milk. These pads can be easily slipped into your bras and they’ll absorb all the excess milk that leaks from your breasts in-between those nursing sessions.
Most women like to have their privacy while breastfeeding. But on those days when you need to go outside for groceries or shopping, it is always advisable to carry a nursing cover with you. This will give you your own little space of privacy to nurse your little one comfortably. Also, it will shield your baby from the sun or wind if you’re breastfeeding outside. Our nursing covers are equipped with a pocket giving you a provision to keep a toy to keep your cutie distracted or you could also use it to keep their feeding bottles away from them.
