Summer is officially here, and so is the summer heat. Overheating is never fun, and it’s even less fun when you’re trying to focus on breastfeeding your baby. Getting extra hydration during the summer heat is critical to your health - ESPECIALLY for new moms! Luckily, we have a few suggestions for items that will help you keep your cool during summer nursing sessions:
This summer definitely doesn’t look like any other. With COVID-19 still looming large, it’s important to make sure you’re stocked with all the essentials for breastfeeding and pumping hygiene. Our COVID-19 Breastfeeding Survival Kit is the perfect option for hand sanitizer, nursing pads, a face mask and other vital products all in one place!
Reusable up to six days, these pads provide cool, soothing relief of nipple soreness and discomfort. The cooling pads create a moist healing environment, and are a huge help with summer breastfeeding irritation.
We absolutely love this lightweight nursing cover! It’s perfect if you’re looking for a bit of extra privacy during your summer breastfeeding session. The open neckline provides airflow, which not only helps keep you cool, but can help you ensure that your baby is properly latched.
Hydrating lactation teas are just the thing to beat the heat! Mrs. Patel’s Herbal Blend Lactation Tea can be enjoyed iced or hot. Whichever you prefer, we recommend adding lemon and your favorite sweetener to make it extra delicious!
TheraPearl are 3-in-1 breast therapy gel packs, designed to provide therapeutic relief for common breastfeeding challenges. The cold therapy helps with engorgement, while the hot therapy relieves plugged ducts and mastitis.
These are just a few products that will help eliminate summer stress and make breastfeeding a comfortable, positive experience. You can find all of these items (and more!) on our online shop.
If you’d prefer to visit our brick-and-mortar shops, you can schedule a VIP shopping appointment at our Burlingame or Menlo Park Breastfeeding Centers here. We are reopening to in-person shopping on July 7, 2020. We will have an in-store sale from July 7, 2020 to July 11, 2020 with the whole store 15% to 75% off, some exclusions apply!
We also host events for new mothers, including an upcoming Mommy and Baby Yoga event that will allow new mamas to relax and bond with their babies.
