Breastfeeding essentials for all moms
In conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week, let me share some of the products that I have been using!
I was introduced to the Lansinoh brand by my sister back when I visited her to meet my newborn niece. She gave me a tube of the Lansinoh HPA Lanolin nipple cream and said that my cousin loves it and raves about it too! Let me just say that it was such a lifesaver for the first 6 weeks of breastfeeding. I mean, people talk about the bonding and how great it feels.. but seriously, breastfeeding huuuurts in the beginning! The bonding and whatnot comes later once you
develop your nipples of steel - which takes time. Thank goodness for the lanolin nipple cream, whenever I felt sore, I'd just apply a pea sized amount and I'd feel good enough
by the next feed to let him latch again. Thanks to this product, I never had any cracked or bleeding nipples. Huzzah!
The cream is 100% natural and safe, so you don't have to remove it before latching baby! It's no wonder that it is the #1 recommended nipple cream by moms and doctors in the
I've also started to use the Lansinoh nursing pads now that I'm back at work. Watch the video for a demo of how much liquid it can take! Honestly, I wasn't sure, but just try aje.
Read the reviews online that its great - #1 selling disposable nursing pads in the US. It hasn't let me down.
And of course, every breastfeeding mom needs breastmilk storage bags for when you pump. What's amazing about the Lansinoh bags is that you can actually directly pump
into it if you use a Lansinoh pump or buy the adaptor for it. I don't have it at the moment but am considering getting the adaptor so I don't have to bring bottles to work with me. Less bulky.
Anyway, happy breastfeeding week mommas in the world!!
