Morgan's Nursing Bag Must-Haves
Not sure what to have handy in your nursing bag? Check out BURU Co-Founder Morgan Hutchinson's breast-feeding essentials below. Happy National Breast-Feeding Week!
My top three picks are the Rachel Pally rollo top, Mother En Vogue waterfall wrap (also available in black) or a swaddle blanket with a giant safety pin.
For disposable ones, I used Lansinoh because they have two sticky strips and stay in place better. For reusable, washable ones, I recommend Bamboobies– I loved them!
I can only speak for me, but I had great success with the Medela Pump In Style Advanced, but I recommend checking out all the Medela pumps to determine the one that's right for you.
Before there was BURU, I found Cake Lingerie online and ordered three. For me, their pretty lace underwire nursing bras made me feel lovely and their cotton candy no wire soft bras kept me comfy. I also picked up some beautiful nude nursing bras by Elle Macpherson Intimates.
If you have a spitter, burp clothes are a MUST! I swear by Aden + Anais burpy bibs.
Only the My Best Friend breast-feeding pillow will do! It's super comfy for both baby and mama.
Personally, I wore a lot of black for a slimming effect, but whites are key too. I didn't know about BUN tanks while I was nursing, but they are hands down my favorite now because they're soft, machine washable AND snap at the shoulders so it's easy to get undressed up top.
I also like Cake Lingerie's tanks for their smoothing and slimming quality.
I LOVED the pump wipes from Medela so you could clean your breast and pump on the go!
As a busy mom, I absolutely adored (and still do!) the S'well 9 ounce bottle because it keeps breast milk hot or cold for 12-24 hours. It's amazing.
I sadly didn't have one of Rebecca Minkoff's fabulous baby bags because I had already bought a big alligator tote while living in China. However, these bags are my absolute favorite and a mommy must-have. I also really like the Warm Milk all in one backpack with nursing pillow for travel.
