Here is a selection of products that may help you during your breastfeeding journey, some of which I have personally used when breastfeeding my children.
Born to Feed Warm & Cool Breast Therapy gel pads are designed to relieve discomfort associated with breastfeeding such as mastitis, engorgement, milk flow, blocked milk ducts and general swelling and tenderness. Having had mastitis several times with each of my children, I know how painful it can be and how relieving a cool gel pad can be.
The contoured gel packs are designed to fit all breast sizes and are safe, non-toxic, soft and pliable and flexible for complete comfort.
When I had my first daughter I had no idea what nipple shields were and didn’t find out about them until I had cracked and sore nipples. After I started to use them, I felt instant relief and they helped dramatically. When I had my next two children, I had them packed in my hospital bag and used them from the start and for about the first 6 weeks.
Pigeon Nipple Shield’s are made from soft flexible silicone rubber and can be used for flat or inverted nipples and sore or cracked nipples. Shaped with a cut-out section on the top to give mum and baby direct skin to skin contact. Breast shields can also be worn to relieve nipple pain from your baby sucking.
Washable Breast Pads from Cherub Baby will help soak up any little (or big) leaks you may have in a discreet and breathable way.
100% cotton inner lining is soft, breathable and gentle on your skin, making them super comfy.
The breastvest breastfeeding singlet is designed to be worn in addition to your nursing bra and gives you easy access breastfeeding without having to fiddle with another layer of clips or openings. breastvest gives you confidence when nursing with a generous layer of support and coverage for your postnatal belly. Available in black or white.
Having correct posture when feeding your baby, whether breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, is essential. In the early weeks you spend so much time doing this that you don’t want to end up with a sore neck or back. The Babybaby Feeding Pillow is the ultimate nursing pillow. They have been reviewed for their styles, shape and benefits. With the “U” shape and inner case of polystyrene beans, this means you can shape and mold the pillow to suit you and provide the ultimate comfort, and is great for nursing two babies.
