Let’s talk about what works, which items are a good investment, and what’s just plain nice to have!
Johnson Nursing Pads - Disposable and readily available at locations such as Shopper's Drug Mart, Walmart and BabiesRUs.
Bamboobies - Super soft and highly absorbent reusable pads made from bamboo, hemp and organic cotton. Locally available at Ella Bella Maternity.
Bravado Designs Bliss Nursing Bra - These were my personal favourite when I was breastfeeding my youngest. Not the sexiest nursing bra on the market but unbelievably comfortable and flawless under a t-shirt. Find it in Calgary at West Coast Kids.
Hotmilk Lure Black Flexiwire Nursing Bra - Sexy and practical! Hotmilk Lingerie is available at Posh Mommy Maternity in Kensington.
Lansinoh HPA Lanolin Ointment is the most widely available nipple ointment. You'll find it at Shopper's Drug Mart, Walmart and BabiesRUs.
For a vegan, organic, non-GMO option, I love Anointment Nipple Butter. Find it in Calgary at Babes In Arms.
Baby Gear Labs does really informative product comparisons. The Best Breast Pump can help you choose the breast pump that is right for you.
Breastfeeding pillows will really save your shoulders and back and also serve double duty as the perfect surroundings for a little one learning to sit, or for supervised, propped up tummy time. I didn’t have one of these until I had my youngest child and I could not believe I had been missing out on the comfort and support a nursing pillow offers a breastfeeding parent.
Made right here in Calgary, The Baby Buddy Nursing Pillow has to be my very favorite! Find it locally at a variety of locations listed on their website.
