Editor's Pick: 8 Must Haves for a Breastfeeding parent
Breastfeeding, or chestfeeding, the more inclusive term for it, is an important time for both the baby and the parent. For the baby it is what is the sole and soul food for the first 6 months of life, not to mention a way to bond with their parent.
For the parent, not only is it important to feed the baby, but it is also SO important to pay attention to their health too. Especially in the early days, with cluster feeding and sleeplessness, it is very easy to forget about meals and supplements. All the more reason why they should not forget to put their nutrition and rest needs up too. And of course, the support of a family is the BIGGEST thing they can need.
The Nestery brings to you 8 must have products in your breastfeeding journey.
