Happy Friday, everyone! Today's Friday 5 is dedicated to the Top 5 Gifts for the Breastfeeding Mom-to-Be. This post is inspired by a good friend of mine who is 4 months pregnant with her first baby. I can't wait for the shower!
Top 5 Gifts for Expecting Moms Who Plan to Breastfeed
1. A nursing pillow, like the Boppy, MyBrestFriend or the EZ-2-Nurse Twins for those expecting multiples!
2. A quality breastfeeding book, like The Nursing Mother's Companion, The Black Woman's Guide to Breastfeeding or The Breastfeeding Book.
3. A nipple cream, like Motherlove's Herbal Nipple Cream, Lansinoh Lanolin or Medela Tender Care Lanolin.
4. Reusable cold/hot packs for soothing engorged breasts. Try Soothies.
5.A reusable bottle, like the Klean Kanteen, that she can fill with water and keep nearby to stay hydrated while breastfeeding.
