Best Buys For Breastfeeding Moms

Okay, breastfeeding may seem a little overwhelming, but you’re going to love these products designed to make it easier.
1
Milk Trays

These are super handy, no matter how crazy they look. You fill the trays with expressed breast milk, freeze, and then use as many one-ounce sticks as you need to fill a bottle—you’ll never have to see an annoying storage bag again.

Buy it: $21, Amazon.com

Medela Pump In Style Advanced

Portable and efficient, this is the pump most moms swear by. Plug it in or let it run on batteries; either way, Medela’s signature two-phase expression technology will express more milk in less time. With included accessories like bottles, breast shields and an ice pack, this system offers more than most pumps. Available in three portable versions: the on-the-go tote, metro bag and backpack.

Buy it: $270, BabiesRUs.com

Lansinoh HPA Lanolin

Prevent painful cracking by smoothing on a nipple moisturizer. We love this one because it’s made from refined lanolin, a fatty substance naturally found in sheep’s wool (no preservatives or additives), so you don’t have to wipe it off before a feeding.

Buy it: $10, BabiesRUs.com
