There is nothing that demonstrates the bond between mother and baby more than the closeness and intimacy of breastfeeding. Breastmilk is also the perfect nourishment for baby and provides many health benefits for both you and baby.

There are now many breastfeeding accessories and aids on the market that can help and assist you during this special time. These products can assist mothers who may be experiencing feeding difficulties, going back to work, or just mums who need the occasional night out:

# Breast Pump

A breast pump may be used for many different reasons. It can assist in helping mum’s to continue breastfeeding after they go back to work, stimulate lactation in cases of low milk supply, assist mum’s to breastfeed premature infant, relieve engorgement, or simply allow mum to store up some breastmilk to have a night out once in awhile.

With the amount of breast pumps offered on the market, it might be a challenge to choose between all the brands and features available. Whatever your situation is, there is a solution to suit your needs – double electric pumps, single electric pumps or manual pumps. Be sure to check whether the pump you want to buy is designed for the frequency of use you require.

# Breastfeeding Pillows

A good breastfeeding pillow is inevitable if you need help relieving back and neck strain whilst breastfeeding. It also helps to obtain the correct height and position for correct latching. Correct latch is very important for successful breastfeeding. Bare in mind – it is quite common for a breastfeeding session for some mums to last up to 30 minutes each side when baby is still very small.

# Breastfeeding Privacy Covers

Nursing privacy covers are a great accessory to take with you everywhere you go. They help you to breastfeed in comfort and in privacy when you are in public. Breastfeeding privacy covers can also be used as a makeshift change mat, sunshade and light wrap, so you definitely should always carry some in your nappy bag.
