I loved breastfeeding my three children. I am grateful for the experience, the relationship I gained with my children and the support I received along the way. Here are my Top 5 Essential Items for Breastfeeding.

Gap Pure Body Tanks
I never bothered with real nursing clothes or nursing covers. My wardrobe for the 2.5 years I breastfed my twin daughters was a Bravado Nursing Bra, a Gap Body Tank Top and then some kind of shirt on top depending on the weather. Here is the best part of this method. You can simply pull up your top shirt, pull down the tank and easily unclip your nursing bra to breastfed discreetly without the need for anything else. Does a little skin show? Of course, you are breastfeeding after all, but in my opinion if someone wants to see my nursing boob that badly, more power to them! Because these tanks are not technically for nursing they are a perfect addition to your wardrobe after nursing too!
The Breastfeeding Book Dr. Sears
While I believe the most important way to have a successful breastfeeding experience is to surround yourself with a supportive pro-breastfeeding network of people, a good breastfeeding book is also helpful for those little questions that will inevitably pop up. I love the whole Sears collection. The Breastfeeding Book is one of my favorites!
