You may or may not know this but breastfeeding did not come easy the third time around like I thought.

With Oakland and Ainsley I wasn’t able to breastfeed either and exclusively pumped for 11 months with Oak and 10 months with Ainsley.

I could not believe I pumped so long with them because I worked full time as a 1st grade teacher! I would pump in my classroom, the bathroom that was in between my classroom and another, and in my car on the way home from work.

I was able to produce so much with my other children that I donated 100’s of ounces to 2 mothers in need.

This time around is a different story.

I expected  pumping to at least be a breeze for me…. but again with my expectations I was wrong. I am not producing a ton but I am getting some and that little bit is going to my sweet baby!

With pumping comes a lot of accessories and I am sharing my go to ones with you today!

I put all of pump parts and Medela pump in this adorable Skip Hop bag. It’s perfect for keeping all of the many parts in the pockets and converts to a backpack for an easy carry! I love the simple design and colors!

I am pretty much obsessed with all of my Bravado bras!! They are SO comfortable and easy to unsnap whenever Leighton decides to latch on 😉

The Buttercup nursing bra provides amazing coverage while displaying an adorable print!

This adorable mom and baby set  from Belabumbum is perfect for lounging around the house. Leighton got the adorable gown and I got a nursing top, capris, and matching robe!

 

 

A hands free pumping bra from Medela is a must. I am able to get work done while using it!Plus I am even able to feed her as she lays on the boppy from my favorite bottles!

This adorable boppy cover is from an adorable Instagram shop called Tuesday June!

 

One product that I am constantly wearing is this SUPPORTwear band from Bao Bei Maternity ! It’s like a sports bra for your belly! It’s great for my core after baby!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My go to product for cleaning all of L’s bottles is this bottle brush from Boon!

FORB’s petals are made of silicone and won’t scratch your bottles.

Remember… regardless if you are able to breastfeed or if you have to pump….

FED IS BEST!

Am I missing anything? If so please let me know what your go to pump products are!

    This is a great roundup of nursing essentials! I’m still nursing my little one but we are on the tail end, so I forget how much is needed in the beginning.
