Products Every Mom Needs
One of the hardest parts of being a working mom with a breastfed baby at home is pumping. Moms feel like they either have to give up and switch to formula, or find creative places to hide at work. No more hiding: the small, lightweight, and silent Elvie Pump can be worn right inside your nursing bra—letting you go about your day, hands-free.
When you’re not pumping, you need to have something that can prevent milk from staining your bra, or leaving embarrassing spots on your blouse. These washable nursing pads are contoured to fit right in your nursing bra, without showing. They’re perfect for chafed nipples and sensitive skin, and made with an inner layer of 100% organic bamboo.
Breastfeeding is a super-bonding experience for mom and baby, but your nipples can be painfully chaffed. It’s a good thing that a breastfeeding mom created Lanolin—the #1 nursing cream endorsed by doctors and moms. It’s 100% natural, so it’s safe to let your baby nurse while Lanolin provides you with some much-needed relief.
Once you become a breastfeeding mom, you might find that your old bras don’t quite fit anymore. It’s time to get the Cake Croissant Nursing Bra to support your fuller bust. This stylish bra is made of breathable cotton, and provides a snug but comfortable fit. Wide straps and an underwire give excellent support, while the drop-down cups make it easier to nurse on the go.
Once you’re a mom-on-the-go you’ll realize that a good stroller is a must-have. Let the 2019 MIXX Stroller by NUNA roll into your life. Run errands, take a walk, and explore new places with a stylish, versatile stroller offering rear and forward-facing seat options. This NUNA stroller is also compatible with a car seat or bassinet, helping you get your baby around at any stage.
Babies have sensitive skin and can get diaper rashes pretty easily. Don’t let it get out of control and use Desitin Daily Defense. The hypoallergenic formula seals out wetness while soothing, treating, and preventing future rashes. The gentle formula is made just for sensitive baby skin and can be used with every changing—it goes on smoothly and wipes off easily.
Your baby’s butt needs some diaper rash cream, but you don’t want to get it on your hands. No problem—the Baby Bum Brush is just the tool you need. Made from soft and flexible silicone, it’s the perfect spatula for applying a smoother, thicker layer of diaper rash cream on your baby’s sensitive bottom. A handy suction-cup base also makes it easy to put down if your baby gets a sudden case of the wiggles.
Gripe water is a parent’s wonder cure. For all those nights when your fussy baby can’t seem to be calmed, you’ll be grateful that Little Remedies Gripe Water is in your medicine cabinet. The all-natural formula is safe for infants, and provides gentle relief from gas, colic, hiccups, and general stomach-related discomfort.
A softly glowing nightlight can do wonders for helping babies and small children calm at night, and it’s helpful for those times when you need to give them a midnight feeding. The Ceramic Moon Nightlight by Pottery Barn Kids is crafted from ceramic, covered in decorative stars, and hand-painted—adding a comforting and elegant touch to the nursery. The light of this little moon is the only light you’ll need in your child’s room at night.
Babies love soft, furry things—especially ones that make soothing noises. The Soothing Sounds Elephant by Pottery Barn is a friendly plush critter that makes four different sounds: mother’s heartbeat, rain, ocean surf, and whalesong. Sounds can run for 23 or 45 minutes, to help lull your little one to sleep. When they’re awake, this cozy friend will be something soft they can hold for comfort.
When you have the babycare items you need, being a mom becomes so much easier. You probably didn’t ever think you’d need gripe water for the middle of the night, or cream for your chafed nipples—but now you know. When you have these helpful products, you can worry less about the practical details of babycare, and enjoy special time with your baby that much more.
