Breastfeeding is a unique experience, but that can be difficult in the first few weeks.

From silicone nipples to avoid sores due to suction, to clothes with special support for the breast bust, products that make breastfeeding easier are gifts of modern life, which offer excellent solutions thanks to technological advances.
Look also at the positive breastfeeding and find out what products you can use, for a satisfying and uncomfortable experience!
Unfortunately, breastfeeding can be painful, especially at first, because the sensitive skin of the mammary areola can be easily irritated by the strong friction it is subjected to. Precisely because of this necessity, silicone nipples were produced, which act as a protective barrier between the areola / nipple and the baby's lips.
The silicone nipples, also called silicone nipples, adhere very well to the breast and also help the baby catch the nipple better so that it can feed without problems.
You can try Avent's small / standard nipple protectors, Tommee Tippee nipple protectors, Medela Contact nipple protectors or NUK silicone nipples.
Correctors for inverted nipple
Breasts can have different sizes and shapes, and not many mothers have inverted nipples (facing inwards). This anatomical feature may prevent the baby from properly grasping the nipple when feeding. The pharmaceutical market has also found solutions for this problem, in the form of corrections for inverted nipples.
These rubber devices are worn on the breasts during periods when breastfeeding does not occur, even before birth (for optimal nipple exposure). They are comfortable, risk-free and effective in correcting inverted nipples.
You can try Niplette Reverse Nipple Corrector from Philips Avent, Medela Reverse Nipple Corrector or Ameda Nipple Formers Nipple Corrector.
No matter how many precautions a mom might take, breastfeeding can predispose her to nipple irritations. Precisely for this common problem, the ointments for the breasts were created, usually based on lanolin, which quickly heals cracked skin and bleeding, without being dangerous to the baby.
After each breastfeeding, use a special ointment for the breasts, even with the appearance of minor irritations that may worsen.
You can try the Gamastan ointment from Protina (based on guava oil, an oil extracted from the guava tree), Sudocrem ointment (with antiseptic effect, stimulates epidermal regeneration) or Multi-Mam ointment with lanolin.
Pillow for breastfeeding
Appreciated by many moms everywhere, breastfeeding pillow makes breast feeding baby much easier, both for the mother and the baby. This product offers the necessary support and keeps the baby at the breast level, so that the mother does not have to bend at all.
The profile market offers you numerous variants of cushions for breastfeeding, in different forms, depending on your needs. You can give MilkyWay, MamoTato, the Mombo multifunctional cushion from Bright Starts or the Bertoni brand cushion a chance.
Another product that can make breastfeeding easier is the saddle seat, which has an angular structure, which helps to correct the position of the mother and baby during breast feeding. If you do not know very well what position to take when breastfeeding, the aforementioned chair helps you stay in the correct position. In addition, you can later reuse the breastfeeding chair as a footrest, practice table, computer chair, etc.
Try the model from Medela (called Nursing Stool), the Philips Avent chair or the Hapfa breastfeeding chair.
Another product that might be useful to you as your baby is still a baby is the breastfeeding blouse, a special clothing accessory created for good bust support, but also for quick access to the baby's nipple.
Breastfeeding blouses can be worn at home or abroad, can replace the breastfeeding bra and remain garments that can be worn for years, even when they no longer serve the purpose for which they were created.
Examples of such useful clothing are the Victoria breastfeeding and pregnancy blouse, the Autumn Leaf discreet breastfeeding blouse, the Carriwell Caj long-breasted breastfeeding blouse, etc.
Sleep deprivation can be a real torture for new mothers, which is why breast pumps were created, which allow the extraction of breast milk and its storage in baby bottles, so that the baby can be fed by someone else.
Breast pumps can be both electric and manual. They are also used to prevent a major problem during breastfeeding, namely milk rage.
You can try breast pumps from Ameda, Chicco, Medela, Nuvita, Philips Avent, Tommee Tippee etc.
Not infrequently, it has happened that breastfeeding moms face wet spots on their clothes, due to excess milk secreted by the breasts during or immediately after breastfeeding. Get ready early to remedy this often embarrassing problem and keep in your bag a few breastfeeding pads, specially made to absorb the accidentally leaking breast milk from the nipple.
You can find disposable or reusable breast pads in pharmacies (they can be washed and used repeatedly), from numerous brands: Philips Avent, Chicco, Charlie Banana, Tommee Tippee, Nuk etc.
