MY BREASTFEEDING ESSENTIALS


Hey beautiful people, 

just thought I should let you know how I survived breastfeeding the first few months.


Breast pads were a must for me! I did not think I needed any till I woke up in a pool of breast milk, ok that is a little exaggeration, I literally woke up soaking wet! I tried different breast pads and the disposable ones worked way better for me. I used the Tommee Tippee Breast pads till about 8 months of breastfeeding.  

Man, am I glad I got this! The 6th day of breastfeeding was torture!! I was in so much pain and my nipples were cracking and bleeding because of bubbas non stop feeding. Lansinoh Lanolin cream did help with the cracking. I popped it on whenever I felt I needed it in the first week.

Muslin cloths, my lifesavers!!! I had an oversupply and Liseli would pull off the boobs whenever I had a let down which led to breast milk splashing everywhere. I used a Muslin Cloth to catch it. Also used them as burp cloths or cover ups.

I had an emergency C section so I breastfed her in a football hold position most of the time which was slightly uncomfortable for me so decided to get a Breastfeeding Pillow and it helped a lot. Used it to give her support when learning how to sit and it was also a little help during tummy time.

Those were MY breastfeeding essentials, what are/were yours? Let me know in the comments section.

Lots of Love,

Kapinda.
