Elvie breast pump – When it came time to choose a breast pump, I opted for the Elvie Pump, which is a wearable electric breast pump. I can simply pop it in my bra and go about my day, walking around and enjoying my day while I pump. The thought of being plugged into a wall multiple times a day sounded extremely restrictive and antiquated.
Burp Cloths – You’re going to be feeding 9+ times/day when the baby is born, which means you’re going to be burping the baby just as much. Do yourself a favor and get burp cloths…LOTS of them.
Nursing Bras – You will need easy to nursing bras when baby arrives.
Lansinoh Baby Bottles – My doula, who is also a lactation consultant, recommended these Lansinoh baby bottles along with a slow flow nipple to mimic breast feeding.
Haakaa manual silicone breast pump and milk catcher to catch any extra liquid gold (breast milk).
Nursing pads – If you’re nursing, you will leak. Stock up on nursing pads to slip into your bras.
Pacifier – These Philips Avent pacifiers were recommended by my doula / lactation consultant.
Boppy Feeding Pillow – This pillow will support you and your baby during nursing.
Kiinde Milk Storage Bags – Store your liquid gold in these easy-to-use milk storage bags.
