KoalaKin Hands-Free Pouch

Hands-free nursing? Say what? Yup, it’s true — the KoalaKin nursing pouch makes breastfeeding that much easier. The strap supports baby so that you don’t have to cradle her. And when you switch sides, simply adjust the shoulder buckles with a click. $90,


Simplisse Double Electric Breast Pump

If you’re shopping for a breast pump, look no further. This one is super comfortable and uses a compression technology, so you won’t feel any yanking or tugging. $250,**


Milk Trays

We know what you’re thinking: Milk Trays? It makes us think of ice cubes. But 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. $22,


Travel Boppy

The popular breastfeeding pillow now comes in a travel size! It folds compactly, so you can easily fit it in any overhead storage bin. Available in 2012, $45,


Nuk Breast Pads

You know how tampons are designed for your flow — light, medium or heavy? Now breast pads are too, so breastfeeding mamas get just the right absorbency. $7,


Simplisse Gia Breastfeeding Pillow

The Gia pillow props baby on an angle to help prevent acid reflux and feeding problems and to aid digestion. There are covers for it available in cool colors, too. $40,



Why didn’t they think of this before? This cover doubles as a breastfeeding pillow! It’s super comfortable for baby and you. $60,


Medela Easy Expression Bustier

No hands-free pump? No problem! This bustier holds the pump in place, so you can actually get stuff done (even if it’s just sending an email) while you’re pumping. $35,


Undercover Mama Nursing Shirt

If you love breastfeeding baby but hate exposing your belly, this is the product for you. The Undercover Mama attaches to your favorite nursing bra and voila! Instant nursing tank. $25,


Munchkin Steam Guard Microwave Sterilizer Bag

Once you’re back to work, your time will be even more valuable. Pop your pump parts and some water into one of these reusable bags, and they’ll steam clean in the microwave in 90 seconds. $6 for 6,


Soothies Gel Pads by Lansinoh

When your nips are sore, some cooling pads can be a total lifesaver. Slide these into your bra and feel quick relief. $10,


Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Nipple Butter

Prevent painful cracking by smoothing on a nipple moisturizer. We love this one because it’s made from all-natural ingredients that are safe for baby to ingest, so you don’t have to wipe it off before a feeding. $10,
