If my own attendance at baby showers has been any kind of indicator, most guests tend to buy cute items for the future little one as oppose to practical items. Everyone shows up to celebrate the baby who's about to arrive, and all the things the mom is about to endure, post-birth, are kind of forgotten. How can you change that? By putting items for you on the registry for your baby shower. For instance, if you want your breastfeeding relationship to be a success, there are breastfeeding items to add to your registry to make nursing a lot easier.
Depending on your approach to breastfeeding, whether you're more traditional or you lean toward the crunchy, attachment parenting side, there are products that can help support your breastfeeding choices. Personally, I could have really used a nursing stool. I ended up hooking my toes into my bed frame, whenever I woke up in the night to feed my son, and that hurt. And really, who wants more pain when you're first starting to breastfeed?
That stool was just the tip of the iceberg, really. There were so many things I would have appreciated getting, in order to make breastfeeding easier on me. Things that I may have considered to be too much of a luxury to invest in, but would have gratefully accepted as a gift. Here are 17 breastfeeding items to add to your registry to make nursing a lot easier on you.
