There are eight pumping product must-haves that I highly recommend on your Wheel of Pumping journey. There are so many products on the market when it comes to pumping and it can be confusing and overwhelming to know exactly what you need. Pumping products are not created equal. There are some products that are work better for others. I am here to take the guess work out of some of the products that have been beyond instrumental on my pumping journey over the last 2.5 years and still counting. Although let me be very clear and transparent that I think there are more than eight pumping items that have made my pumping journey so much better, these are my eight must-haves for any pumping journey.
Breast Pump: an efficient double electric breast pump and properly fitted flanges
Storage Bag/Containers (includes bottles): to store milk
Pumping Bra: for hand-free pumping (no hacks here - you NEED a real pumping bra)
Nipple Cream/Spray: to lubricate the flanges and/or nipple area
Warming Massagers: to heat and vibrate the breast area to empty more efficiently
Breast Shells: for nipple crack or soreness to protect your nipples
Pump Bag: to carry your breast pump and accessories
Pump Clothing: to be more comfortable when pumping
