You’ve had a lot going on in the past few months, which means no matter how carefully you curated your baby registry and nested ahead of baby’s arrival, you’re bound to have some last-minute shopping to do.

Whether you’re buying your first round of essentials or need to restock, check out this list of breastfeeding products available on Amazon Prime, all ready to ship and arrive at your door faster than you can say “breast milk storage bags.”
iLoveSIA Women’s Seamless Maternity and Nursing Bras
First on our list of breastfeeding essentials: Get yourself some good nursing bras. Our readers are huge fans of these sets; they come in a mix of pretty, neutral colors, they’re wire-free for supreme comfort and they’re affordable to boot. They also have easy-to-use adjustable straps and removable foam cups for optional extra coverage (for example, if you’re trying to hide nursing pads).

Lansinoh Stay Dry Disposable Nursing Pads
Ah, yes, nursing pads—talk about breastfeeding essentials! Stop leaks from seeping through your clothes with the help of these go-to nipple covers. Their honeycomb quilting keeps you looking and feeling dry, but the pads are still thin and soft enough to go easy on sore nipples. It’s recommended that you swap out nursing pads frequently, which is extra-easy since these ones are disposable.

Bamboobies Organic Lanolin-Free Nursing Balm Nipple Cream
We know breastfeeding can be a pain—literally. That’s why nipple cream is one of the most important (but often forgotten) breastfeeding supplies out there.

iLoveSIA Seamless Nursing Cami Tank Tops
Obviously, we’re here for double-duty breastfeeding essentials, which is where these nursing tops come in.

They’ve also got one-hand drop-down cups that maximize skin-to-skin contact with baby. Just like the brand’s stand-alone nursing bras, these camis have excellent ratings.

Kiinde Breast Milk Storage Twist Pouches
These pouches are our one of our top picks for breast milk storage bags. Why? Because they’re uber-efficient.

You can even slip the bag into a Kiinde squeeze bottle, pop on a bottle nipple and feed baby straight from the twist pouch. We’re all about clever designs that preserve every drop of your liquid gold!
