Top Baby Items for Dallas Moms
For the Nursing Mama
Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump A friend gifted me the haakaa with my first baby and it was a total life changer. Attach the silicone pump to the opposite side of where your baby is nursing and collect all that valuable let down! Don’t let a single drop of milk to waste in a breast pad.
There are several styles available, but I have found the original 4 oz size is the best fit – not too big or too small.
Maternity & Nursing Tank Top from Amazon I hate buying maternity clothes so I try to find things that will work both during pregnancy and postpartum. I love these tank tops that are flowy enough for maternity but have easy access for nursing! I have 3 and may be buying more soon.
Lanolin You can never have too much of this on hand. From sore nipples to blisters and dry skin, Lanolin is your new best friend.
For the Pumping Mom
Wireless Breast Pump Your insurance should cover a breast pump with each pregnancy. I highly recommend looking for a wireless pump. It is so much easier to move around if your pump does not need to be plugged into the wall! I personally have the InStyle and Sonata from Medela, but there are lots of brands to choose from.
Hands Free Pumping & Nursing Bra These simple cotton bras are the most comfortable bra that I have found! I wear them during pregnancy and postpartum. They can be used for hands free pumping or for nursing!
See above for Lanolin which will also be your best friend 🙂
JJ Cole Agility Stretch Carrier Look for a baby carrier that goes over your head like a shirt – no crazy ties or straps to tighten! It is so much easier to put this style carrier on when you are alone with a crying baby. It stays tight and keeps baby close for skin to skin.
Costco baby wipes and diapers are seriously the best quality out there, especially the wipes!! If you have access to a Costco membership, buy as many boxes of these wipes as you can. My oldest is almost 5 years old and we are still using them on a daily basis. They are super strong and extra big which is a huge help for blow outs. Their diapers are also a great deal!
VELCRO Swaddles I honestly don’t know how any parent keeps a regular swaddle closed. I use a velcro swaddle from day 1 of coming home from the hospital because I can never get swaddle blankets as tight as the labor and delivery nurses can.
What would you add to the list as the top baby items for Dallas Moms? I would love to hear what works best for you and your Dallas baby!
