While breastfeeding is undeniably beneficial, it, can cause some discomfort for mom. Medela Tender Care Hydrogel Pads soothes sore nipples related to postpartum skin changes or breastfeeding complications. Lactating breasts can sometimes leak, causing embarrassing stains on clothes. To avoid leakage from unexpected letdown, Evenflo Advanced Nursing Pads have you covered. With 90 years of industry-led dryness technology behind them, these pads protect against leaking day and night. They are individually wrapped so they’re easy to use on the go and have a slim, discreet design making them easy to wear and comfortable on your skin.
If baby is having difficult latching, flat or inverted nipples may be the reason. The Lansinoh Breastfeeding Latch Assist is an iParenting media award-winning product that draws out flat nipples to help baby latch and feed comfortably. And when baby has a diaper rash and mom has tender nipples, the hypoallergenic and fragrance-free Ameda Triple Zero Lanolin Cream is a simple way to solve two problems with one solution.
How you provide your baby with breast milk, whether by breastfeeding directly, pumping for bottle feeding or both will be determined by what works best for you and your newborn. And that can, and probably will, change over time. What matters most is that you make smart, healthy choices and know that you have options and solutions available to you. And, of course, always trust your doctor’s advice and mom instincts.
