Breast pumps are essential, even if you are planning to breastfeed your baby. If there are instances where you are out and your baby is with a sitter or another family member, it’s useful to have a breast pump handy in case you start to experience discomfort. You can also use it to pump breast milk and put it in a bottle, which you might prefer for a number of reasons, including having twins, your baby not latching on or pumping being less painful than breastfeeding.
The baby bottle is an obvious staple, and an absolute must-have if you are choosing to use baby formula or not to breastfeed. They’re handy for a number of reasons, such as being able to tell exactly how much your baby is drinking. Baby bottles come in many ergonomic and fun shapes and you can even find ones that are self-sterilizing.
Muslin cloths are extremely versatile and super absorbent, making them endlessly useful at feeding time. They can be used for everything from swaddling your baby to cleaning their face after feeding, and come in a range of colors, patterns and sizes to suit you.
