Here is a list of all the breastfeeding essentials that a new-mom must stock in order to make breastfeeding easy and a lovely experience:

Nipple Cream:

Breastfeeding may feel painful to almost everyone in the beginning. Your nipples may get sore, cracked or may even bleed. But don’t give up, because in most cases this pain is absolutely normal. Instead, ask your physician to prescribe some good medicated cream to soothe you nipples.

Nursing Bras:

They offer a great level of comfort while breastfeeding your baby and are of real help to make nursing easier.

Nursing pillow:

It is a must-have breastfeeding essential which provides support to your back and arm while you feed your baby. It helps to keep your baby elevated and holds him in the right position to nurse. Not only this, it also helps in reducing gastric reflux issues in babies that are common during breastfeeding.

Breast Pads:

It is quiet likely that you leak breast milk quite often after delivery. In order to avoid any embarrassing situation, using breast pads to keep your clothes clean and dry is a good idea.

Burp Cloths:

They protect your clothes when your baby spits-up or are useful to wipe spit-up from your baby’s mouth while burping your baby.

Button-down Shirts or Maternity Nursing gown:

Simple button-down outfits always make it easier to breastfeed your baby without having to change clothes.

Breast pumps:

If you are a working mom you must not forget to purchase this. It helps ensure that your baby has his food ready whenever he needs it even when you are not around.

With these few things at your easy reach you are sure to experience a lovely time developing a sweet bond with your baby while breastfeeding.
