Clever Accessories for Breastfeeding Moms

By: Ginnie Wagner, BS/IBCLC, NE/BF Coordinator, LBU WIC

There are several clever accessories that can make breastfeeding more comfortable and convenient for mothers. Some popular options include:

Nursing bras: These bras are designed to make it easy for mothers to breastfeed their babies without having to remove their clothing.

Nursing covers: These are specially designed covers that can be draped over a mother’s shoulder to provide privacy while breastfeeding in public.

Breastfeeding pillow: These pillows are designed to support a baby while they are breastfeeding, which can help to relieve strain on the mother’s arms and back.

Breast pump: A breast pump can be used to express milk, which can be stored and used later when a mother is away from her baby.

Milk storage bags: These bags can be used to store expressed milk in the refrigerator or freezer.

Hands-free pumping bras: These bras allow the mother to pump without holding the flanges and tubes and other parts of the pump in place.

Nipple cream: it helps to soothe the pain and soreness of breastfeeding nipples.

Nursing pads: it can be helpful for moms who experience leakage during breastfeeding or after breastfeeding.

These are some examples of clever accessories available for breastfeeding moms, but ultimately the best accessory is the one that works best for you and your baby.
