“Must-haves” for nursing moms

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Making breastfeeding a whole lot easier with some “must-haves” that Certified Lactation Consultant and registered nurse Shari Criso swears by.

With the right education and convenient tools, modern moms are able to sustain breastfeeding like women in the past.

These our my top picks:
1. One of the most important tools is an electric breast pump. The Advanced Double Electric Breast Pump from Evenflo offers slouch-free comfort; gives moms 3 different sizes for best fit; 32 different settings to adjust speed and suction; and design keeps milk as pure as nature. This deluxe version comes with its own carrying bag and educational programming which is extremely helpful to new moms.

2. This diaper bag converts into a breastfeeding pillow to provide perfect positioning and comfort for moms on-the-go. It even contains one insulated pocket for breast milk and removable feeding pillow in washable pillow case.

3. Make sure to fully support breasts throughout the day. This nursing tank features a full support built in bra and seamless finish works well.

4. If you want to help boost milk supply nutritiously, try lactation cookies that double as a portable and delicious snack. Milk Makers are made with oats, brewer’s yeast, and flax seed – traditional remedies used to help increase breast milk production.
