Thursday Giveaway: Nursing Essentials
October 29, 2014 6:42 pm | by
10001540_10152749569954816_413091784_nChoosing to breast or formula feed is one of the first decisions you will make as a new parent. Each option provides different benefits for every family, but both have one thing in common — it’s hard work.
Breastfeeding is declared the most economical way to feed your baby because it requires little to few supplies. But for any breastfeeding mom, there are two accessories that are absolutely vital: nursing tank tops and reusable nursing pads. The MilkDaze Nursing Cami makes breastfeeding easier. The front layer conveniently and discretely pulls aside to expose the nipple and then snaps back into place without clips or hardware, allowing you to feed your little one anytime, anywhere. Milkdaze Nursing Pads are created with a stay-dry fabric lining to wick moisture away from your skin, which will inhibit the growth of bacteria that can lead to infection.  The weight of your breast helps to keep the nursing pad in place and the teardrop shape keeps pads hidden under clothing.
For today’s giveaway, three people have the chance to win a MilkDaze Nursing Cami and a set of MilkDaze Nursing Pads to get you started with breastfeeding! All you have to do is share your favorite feeding tip for babies. You can also tell us your favorite nursing bra and, if you do not breastfeed, state which feeding accessory you love or check out our feeding category and comment with what you want to try once your little one arrives.

    my best breastfeeding tip is keep trying…it’s not easy but most mommies and babies can learn to breastfeed.

    If it hurts a LOT, that’s not normal. Push to see the LC at the hospital for more than 2 minutes (assuming you had a hospital birth), and get that latch right!

    Feed on demand. So far I have found that the Motherhood Maternity tanks work the best, for me!

    Make sure to get support in your early days! I love my Bravado bras, but this would be fun to try too!

    It’s not east a first, but perseverance is the key. Get involved with your local La Leche League, find a local lactation consultant and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Also non-stop nursing at the beginning is normal.
    They only nursing bras I have are the ones from Target, not the greatest but get the job done.

    Find what works best for you and baby! I read so many different opinions I was so confused and stressed out. I finally quit reading, prayed for wisdom and enjoyed mothering so much more!! It’s s blessing not a burden

    My tip would be feed when baby wants to eat. Don’t try to make a schedule. Baby will eat when they are hungry!

  • megan b said...

    My best tip is to feed on demand not on a schedule and use a baby carrier. You can breastfeed with a carrier and no one will know and no lugging strollers around.

    one of my favorite nursing accessories is the milkies milk catcher! 😀

    My biggest tip for breastfeeding a newborn is nurse on demand-breastfeeding is a supply/demand issue.

  • mellisa Patterson said...

    The best tip is to relax and enjoy the sweet look baby gives u while nursing

    nursing was a challenge for us. my baby never burped so i never knew if she was hungry or her belly was sore from not burping…. i LOVED nursing tanktops…. lived in them. more comfy for me than a bra.

  • Annalisa Nelson said...

    I’m a new mom, so not very experienced yet, but the best tip I’ve learned is to feed my baby before he gets too hungry, otherwise he gets too upset to eat

  • michelle said...

    My favorite nursing bra is pretty much any sports bra. They are easy to pull up and over, easier to resecure, fit the same whether I am full or empty, and far less expensive than any nursing bra (I did buy several at $50+/bra).

  • Melissa said...
    October 31, 2014 at 2:32 pm

    I’m not a mom yet… one more month! But I’m definitely planning on breastfeeding. Once I was pregnant and needed new bras, I picked up a couple of nursing bras from Target. So far, so good… we’ll see how they do when it’s actually time to nurse!

  • Ashley Tucker said...

    I don’t have any tips yet, but I would love to try the Milkdaze nursing cami.

  • Kate F said...

    My favorite feeding tip.. RELAX!! With my first baby I was an exclusive pumper, there was so much pressure to produce in the beginning and I really struggled. It was not until I decided to stop worrying about how much I was producing and just be content that I was able to get anything at all that I really saw results. That change in attitude made all the difference!

  • Casey H said...

    Bravado Designs has great nursing wear!

  • catie said...

    I really like the Target brand nursing sports bra! And it’s easy to hide those ginormous new nursing boobies in them. 🙂

  • Bianca Norman said...

    Learn about all your breastfeeding resources while you’re expecting. Find your support people and educate yourself on the subject. It’s one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. I love breastfeeding! Nursing tanks are my favorite!

  • Anel said...
    October 30, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    I will be breastfeeding for the first time in a month, and my tip, that I have heard from other mamas that even if the start is rough, to keep trying!! Thank you!

  • Jennifer M. said...

    Our baby is due to arrive in mid December, and we definitely hope/plan to breastfeed him. I’m excited about the Medela pump… and eventually the Beaba Babycook tools 🙂

  • Vicki said...

    I love to breastfeed in bed; snuggling and snoozing with my baby is the best!

  • Shana said...

    i love medela products for nursing.

    Use the bibs that have a catcher on them!

    Patience! Hard to have some days. Lone my Anitas and bravado!

    I love the ones Target sells and the Wal-Mart ones (Special Moments, I think it’s called). I haven’t tried anything else.

  • Velvet said...

    I don’t know that I have a favorite feeding tip. I really enjoyed breastfeeding with my first child and plan to do it with the rest. Favorite nursing bra was made by Bravado . These Milkdaze camis sound great though.

  • Janelle Beyer said...

    My biggest tip, especially for breast feeding is to find a network of support. Whether it be family, friends, or a Llactation Consultant, support is crucial to bring successful. My favorite nursing bra is APea in the Pod wireless.

  • Dale said...
    October 30, 2014 at 10:20 am

    My nursing tip is to seek out a lactation consultant that you click with – the one at the hospital didn’t work for us but our pediatrician keeps one on staff. She is a fantastic resource. And ask for help. Repeatedly. If you need it you have to ask for it.

  • Jennifer said...
    October 30, 2014 at 10:12 am

    I like the Motherhood Maternity Wire-free full coverage bra for everyday nursing, and I prefer cloth nursing pads with a stay-dry lining.

  • Morgan Schwall said...
    October 30, 2014 at 9:50 am

    We’ve been breastfeeding for 7 months now. I don’t own any nursing tanks, but I’ve heard they are amazing and make feeding in public a lot easier! 🙂 The nursing bras I use are just simple ones from Target.

  • Jeanie Payne said...
    October 30, 2014 at 9:31 am

    Find a comfy position for breastfeeding baby. It may not be the traditional cradle hold, so try a few to see which one works best.

  • Kay said...

    I have been breastfeeding for 2 months now. I have 2 toddlers so it can get pretty stressful when baby gets hungry out in public, specifically at stores. I have found that nursing in the toys section, using just a swaddle blanket for cover, works very well for us. The 2 toddlers are distracted by toys so I can feed without chasing them everywhere. For nursing pads, I have been using bamboobies and love them so much that I bought some for my sister who is expecting any day now.

  • Aleah Looney said...

    My favorite breastfeeding tip is to bed-share!

  • Emily Nielsen said...
    October 30, 2014 at 8:51 am

    I love my nursing tanks for discreet nursing!

  • Erin said...
    October 30, 2014 at 8:50 am

    Best tip is don’t give up because it will get easier. Don’t have a favorite nursing bra because I have only tried one and it’s not so great.

    My baby won’t be here until spring so I have no tips or tricks on feeding but I can’t wait to try the Baeba Babycook Baby Food Maker once we start solids!

  • Lauren B said...
    October 30, 2014 at 8:00 am

    My favorite nursing essential is a nursing tank. I have a few of them from target and wear one everyday. It is essential to me because it allows me to lift my shirt to feed DD without exposing my midsection. I would love to try the milkdaze tank!!!

  • Jenn Barton said...
    October 30, 2014 at 7:06 am

    My favorite tip for nursing is to nurse on demand and not on a schedule. Breastfeeding rocks!!!

  • Lianne Reese said...
    October 30, 2014 at 6:37 am

    Grab a glass of water before you sit down to feed!

  • Katelyn Becze said...

    pregnant with my first and so excited/nervous about breastfeeding our little one!

  • Catherine BW said...

    My favorite nursing accessory was actually the nursing tank – love these!

  • Melissa E said...

    I’d love to be equipped with a few nursing camis when my little one is born!

    My favorite nursing bra is a sleep bra I got from Motherhood Maternity… I wish everything I wore was that comfortable. 🙂 And my best tip? Don’t stress out and don’t let other people judge you for your choices – you know what’s best for your child!
