Pump and Save Bags have been easy to store and freeze. I started off using the Medela brand but just found the Target brand is a few bucks cheaper. Target does it again!
Organic Nipple Covers- These are reusable and much better for my wallet and the environment
Green Sprouts Burp Clothes- Jack is a spitter. These are the best I've used. They are longer, thicker wider and are shaped better than any others I have used.
LL Bean XL Canvas Tote- It's HUGE and is perfect for a long day out when my regular diaper bag is too small.
Medela Hands Free Pumping bra- I've found pumping to be tedious and boring. At least with this I have been able to have contact with Jack and even bottle feed him. Yay for multitasking mommas!
Quick Clean Wipes- These are always in our diaper bag. The are easy to use especially on the go.
Here are just a few more things that have come in handy:
- Trail mix, granola bars, pretzels and other easy to grab and go snacks.
- Dermaplast and Tucks pads- After the pain of a natural birth there are not too many things that make you feel good down there but these 2 items definitely helped. My hospital supplied them but I would suggest purchasing them because I used 2 of each packages. They were a huge help.
- Yoga pants, open front top/robe- I prefer the the roll down waist yoga pants but I pull them up over my tummy. The open front tops were helpful when pumping and nursing.
- Nursing Cover- After Jack was born we had non stop visitors which made it difficult to pump and nurse comfortably. I also bring it along wherever I go just in case.
