Great Gifts for the Breastfeeding Mother

Teething Bling
Product Details

Teething bling is a breastfeeding necklace for teething babies - I discovered this item far too late into my breastfeeding relationship! They come in a number of colors to match any outfit. They are fairly inexpensive at around $20 apiece, and this company also sells bangles to match! You can redirect your baby's biting to this conveniently located necklace. Fantastic!

Google Nexus 7 Tablet PC

This item was a recent gift to me from my husband, it is a 7 inch tablet PC. It is fantastic! It is fast, can run multiple applications at once, and has the Droid market - lots of apps and even many free ones. There are two types available - 8gb at $200 and the 16gb one at $250! Sometimes it is nice to get a break and just sit quietly with the baby during nursing sessions; other times it can be quite boring and a gadget like this can pass the time.

Boppy Breastfeeding Pillow
Product Details

While there are other brands of breastfeeding support pillows, my only experience is with this one. I loved it! When Nathan was first born I was so concerned with propping him at the correct height while keeping him comfortable, and this pillow was a great support for my arms to allow me to do so! These also come in a variety of colors and designs. However, as a gift for a breastfeeding mother, they only need one and mostly in the first few weeks or months after birth.


There are a number of nursing tank tops/bras/shirts/pads/more that are quite useful to a breastfeeding mother, but buying clothing can be tricky - especially for some one whose belly and chest went through quite an ordeal during pregnancy and continue to change throughout the breastfeeding relationship. So, you may want to avoid this.

What do you think? What are some gifts that you breastfeeding mamas could use?
