A supportive bra that allows you to multi-task

Finding a supportive bra is hard enough for women who aren't nursing. With the more-ample-than-usual breasts of a nursing mother, this issue can become an even bigger problem. Simple Wishes' B3 all-in-one nursing and pumping bra offers 10 points of support and provides the wearer with the ability to nurse (while also encouraging skin-to-skin contact) or pump hands-free — or do both at the same time. The bra is compatible with all popular breast pumps and is available in four colors for $60 each.

Increased milk production

I can't tell you the number of times I literally cried over spilled milk when pumping. Every ounce I pumped was like liquid gold. And as a full-time working mom while I was nursing my first child, producing enough milk to get my baby through the day while I was away at work caused me constant stress. I wish I would have known then about Milkmakers lactation cookies, which help promote a strong milk supply with healthy ingredients like oats, flaxseed and brewer's yeast. The company even has mixes with gluten-free options.

Aside from production-boosting products, the most natural way to produce more milk is to nurse Baby more and pump more often as well. If you're dependent on your pump, it's important to have a very high-quality one. I used a hospital-grade electric double pump from Medela, which never failed me.

Avoid leakage

One of the most embarrassing nursing challenges is leakage. Never leave home without fresh nursing pads tucked into your bra, and carry a few spare ones just in case.

Prevent chafing

Ouch. When you're first getting used to nursing your newborn, an incorrect latch can cause the nipple to end up rubbing against the roof of Baby's mouth. And that can leading to painful chafing and general soreness. When encouraging Baby to latch, his mouth should be wide open so he can take in as much of the areola as possible to avoid any unnecessary rubbing.

Consult an expert

When you experience a challenge with breastfeeding, seek the advice of an expert instead of simply giving up. Joy Kosak, a lactivist, mother of two breastfed babies and owner of Simple Wishes and Pumping Essentials, encourages new nursing moms to take it one day at a time as they adjust to the learning curve. She adds, "Get help as soon as you run into any issues. Most hospitals have nurses on call for lactation consulting, so check before you leave. Last but not least, although breastfeeding can be daunting if you run into challenges, remember that you are doing the best possible thing for both you and your baby by aiming to achieve your individual breastfeeding goal.”
