As with everything in parenthood, the breastfeeding journey can have it's ups and downs. Our own experience (yep, we've been there!) is that support and positivity are really key. Many gifts aimed at nursing mums seem geared towards problems;balms and shields and breast like bottles. Instead, we choose to focus on the essentials! Is a breastfeeding necklace an essential? If you have a twiddler/hair puller/fidgety baby or toddler, it really can be! We love that the Mariella breastfeeding necklace looks stylish while having such a practical use
Little Lamb breast pads are scrumptiously soft and comfortable. Each pad is made from two layers of Oeko-tex certified bamboo, with one layer having an internally bonded waterproof backing; and they reach maximum absorption after a dozen washes. We recomend washing at least a few times before use to boost absorbency and remove any loose fluff.
Two sizes are available but the vast majority of customers buy, and are happy with, the 11cm size. To launder, place all used pads in the laundry bag and place in the washer with your normal clothing. Each pack contains 10 breast pads in a mesh laundry bag.
Nursing is thirsty (and hunger inducing!) work, so we figured a Fosh bottle and a pack of yummy chocolate buttons were key to keeping mum hydrated and energised. And, if you really want to give mum the greatest gift, you could maybe do the dishes and stick a wash on while she gets on with the cluster feeds....
