Mama Water bottle
If you’ve breastfed before you know that it is thirsty work. Your body needs extra water to make the milk and to encourage your supply, particularly in the early days. That’s why I love a mama water bottle, it’s such a thoughtful gift for a nursing mom. She’ll need to be drinking water around the clock to stay hydrated, and this stainless steel tumbler is easy to clean and can keep hot drinks hot and cool drinks cool.
Anything that makes breastfeeding a little easier or a little more comfortable is going to be a hit for a breastfeeding mom.
When my boy was a newborn I was given this pillow and I absolutely loved it.
Another popular nursing pillow is the boppy. It’s super comfortable and supportive.
At some stage or another, we all need to breastfeed in public. Most moms like to have something that can give them a little privacy while breastfeeding out and about. Most nursing covers are pretty daggy, but I love these breastfeeding scarves from bebe au lait. They double as a fashionable scarf and can be used as a nursing cover, a pram cover or a shade for your baby. It just makes sense to buy something that will be used and this scarf has multiple functions.
Breastfeeding and pumping moms alike know the pain of cracked nipples. An all natural, organic nipple cream is the only thing that should be going near any mom’s breasts. While I’d normally say this is a pretty personal gift for a nursing mom, i think it would be a helpful gift as part of a breastfeeding gift basket.
Have you heard of nursing necklaces? As babies grow they seem to get a bit distracted while nursing. Nursing necklaces are worn by moms, and give their bubs something to fiddle with while they are feeding, leaving higher quality jewelry out of reach! They also help bubs to stop pinching and scratching at moms skin while feeding.
DIY Breastfeeding Gift Basket
If none of these gifts are appealing, you could put together a simple breastfeeding gift basket for your favorite nursing mom. You could put a water bottle, a nursing scarf, some nursing pads, nipple cream, her favorite snacks and a box of Mother’s Milk tea together in a basket. This personalised and thoughtful present is sure to be the perfect gift.
An easy access nursing tank can make breastfeeding so much easier. Not having to pull your clothes up or down can make all the difference. These are lovely organic cotton nursing tanks, just make sure you know your friend’s size before you choose her a tank. Or maybe try a gift certificate!
In the early days of breastfeeding you seem to have a lot of time on your hands… Of course, this quickly changes. But if your gift recipient is wanting to breastfeed, a quality book about breastfeeding is going to be a popular gift.
La Leche League basically wrote the breastfeeding bible, and it’s one that I’d recommend to any mom.
Mother’s Milk Tea
A really simple gift that is sure to be appreciated is a delicious herbal tea that will help support her milk supply. This mother’s milk tea is made with shisandra and ashwaganda, both of which support more milk.
If you’re looking for a big ticket item that is sure to be a hit, then a breastfeeding chair is an excellent gift. We’ve rounded up the top glider chairs for breastfeeding here, but if you don’t want to read the whole article, we think that the XXX is the best glider chair for breastfeeding moms.
A simple gift that just about everyone will buy for a nursing mama is breast pads. These helpful gifts will help your mom to stop getting milk on her tshirts. They slip into the bra and catch any milk that leaks from staining her shirt. Keep in mind though that many moms will not leak milk.
If the breastfeeding mom that you are buying for doesn’t have a diaper bag already, then this will be one of the best gifts that you can buy! It will be tricky to buy a nice bag, but if you know what she likes you are sure to find something that is fashionable and suits her style. Make sure to pick one that is big enough for everything she needs.
