Breastfeeding strikes as the first natural thing, but for some of us, this can be a painful and frustrating experience. Here are some products selected to ease your adjustment into breastfeeding.
When you're back to work while breastfeeding, you might miss your privacy and want to act fast as you can. Pump and store recommendations are also in this list.
The pads are made of a mixture of cotton and bamboo rayon and they are so soft that it feels like velvet. The set includes 4 different colors that define their observation ability, from light leak (light pink) to heavy leak (light blue). The heart shape helps the pad cover the nipple without being seen.
Use it only if you can't nurse without it. Keep in mind that though it eases sour nipples, it prevents a proper stimulation for future milk production and after getting used to, it may be harder to nurse without.
The pillow has an adjustable strap that stays in place and doesn't move which is important when nursing a newborn. It has a small pocket that you can keep toys and accessories like the nipple cream or a nipple shield. The cover is removable and is washing machine safe.
The first few hours/ days/ weeks of breastfeeding can be very painful. Those cooling gel pads will sooth and relieve the pain. There's no need to wash the nipple before feeding your baby. The pads are big enough so you can cut the into quarters and save money.
Keep track of baby's nursing/bottle, sleeping and everything else. There are lots of apps for smartphones doing the same. But if you want one device for few caregivers or just to avoid any radiation by mobile phones, try this one.
Holding the baby with your wrist can cause pain. If you feel that pain, you probably have Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Try supporting the baby with your forearm instead, let the hand rest as much as you can, and wear wrist support.
