The Best Gifts for A Breastfeeding Mother

What does a breastfeeding mom need and how do you get her a gift that will not only celebrate her breastfeeding journey, but make it better!

Thankfully, over the past decade or so, breastfeeding has been getting more awareness and new moms are now encouraged to nurse their babies for as long as possible. 

With that growing number of women choosing to breastfeed, there has been an influx of wonderful and innovative products to help make breastfeeding easier.

Let’s look at some of those gift ideas now!

1. Nipple Butter

This gift may get a little chuckle or two when your new mama receives it, but any veteran breastfeeding mom knows, this gift will not go unused!

4. Breast Pump Bag

Now this gift would make any mom the envy of all her new mom friends. Some breast pumps do come with a bag, but they are not cute – at all. If the breastfeeding mom you are shopping for is stylish and on the go, then a breast pump bag like this one would make the perfect gift for her!

5. Nursing Pillow

Every breastfeeding mom should have at least one nursing pillow and more than that doesn’t hurt either!

These breastfeeding pillows come in handy for many different scenarios. This is the Cloud Island line at Target in Floral Fields. I own this exact Boppy myself and it was gifted to me as well, we love it!

6. Nursing Cover

Some of us are still a little shy when it comes to nursing in public, so why not make it a fashion statement?!

This nursing cover has multi-functional use and can also perform as a carseat cover, highchair cover, shopping cart and anything else you want to prevent your baby from coming in direct contact with. 

Use the code LOVEOURLITTLES for an enormous discount on a premium carseat canopy!

8. Reminder Bracelet

I wish I would have known about these reminder bracelets when I was nursing my newborn and extremely sleep deprived!

It may sound silly to need help remembering which side you last nursed on, but when you’re a sleep deprived new mom, it’s a common problem to have!

This particular breastfeeding bracelet can also be used to clip back a nursing cover, pretty neat!

9. Portable Breast Pump

Let’s say you really want to provide your breastfeeding loved one with a more practical and generous gift. A breast pump like the Genie Plus would be a smart pump to choose. 

This pump is great for all purpose breast pumping, especially great for pumping on the go and being mobile.

Use the code SHOP-10-LOVEOURLITTLES10 for 10% off.

The breastfeeding mom you have in mind is probably waking up multiple times per night to breastfeed and is most likely exhausted. 

She will love drinking her coffee in this peace, love and breastfeeding mug!

11. Breastfeeding Jewelry

Breastfeeding is something to be proud of and having a memento to honor it is a really nice thought!

This bonding breastfeeding bracelet is such a sweet gift idea for the mom you are thinking of. Babies love to twiddle things while they are nursing, and this bracelet would be the perfect piece of distraction.

12. Breastfeeding Water Bottle

Hydration is very important for a breastfeeding mom and it’s not an easy task to remember to do! 

Give your breastfeeding mom a gift to help encourage her to drink more water and remember you every time she does.

This breastfeeding water bottle gift idea is one of my favorites on the list!

A Bonus Breastfeeding Gift Idea!

This bonus idea is really thinking outside of the box, but it’s a really cool gift idea for the plan ahead mom you know.

How about gifting her a breastfeeding preparation e-course like the one Milkology offers?

Thousands of woman sign up a month for this on demand and online video course. It’s full of amazingly well thought out content to help any mom with her breastfeeding journey.

This gift would last forever too because it never expires and is always being updated!
