    Great post!

    I have been very fortunate that our girl took to breastfeeding immediately!

    On clothes- I love using a nursing tank under a shirt, especially in more public areas. Kohl’s makes a Barely There bra that has releases on the straps. It’s not a nursing bra, but it’s worked great for me.

    On comfort- I find that folding a blanket to elbow height really helps! Sometimes I’ll feed Susanna with her feet on pillows and a blanket under my elbow. She’s close to my body which we both enjoy, but our key body parts are supported.

    While many products and positions were recommended to me, I had to learn with patience, love, and perseverance what worked best for me and us.

    Great post. La Leche League has many great resources. I loved their cookbook that would go along nicely with item #8 Feed Yourself, Feed Your Family.

    A “hands free” bra for when you pump is really great to have! If your little one is fussy while you’re pumping, or you want to snack, drink water, catch up on emails or simply relax, it gives you the ability to do so at the same time. 🙂

    I agree with Mary Jane! ^^ Love my hands free Medela Easy Expression Bustier. Works great with my Medela In Style Advanced Starter. Ladies check and see if you can get your breastpump for free through insurance! Got mine through Aeroflow Breastpumps. Saved me $300!
