That post is part of the breastfeeding blog hop and therefore in English. All other posts of this blog are in German. This Week’s Topic: Lame Breastfeeding Products – Things that DIDN’T work for you.
Dieser Post ist Teil des breastfeeding blog hop und damit in Englisch. Alle anderen Artikel in meinem Blog sind auf Deutsch.
I had quite a few products that assisted my breastfeeding mission in the beginning: nursing pads, a breastfeeding app on my smart phone, nursing bras, lanolin for my nipples, and a nursing pillow. I used all of these and I was happy to have them. They all worked for me in the beginning let’s say the first 6-8 weeks. Then most of them started not to work out for me as time went by. I tossed the nursing pads, because I got tired of crumbling them in my bra or taking them out while nursing, plus, I didn’t leak so much anymore and if I did, I didn’t care. I stopped using the breastfeeding app after 6 weeks, because it got too complicated to track time and side. I was now comfortable nursing without it. I didn’t need the lanolin anymore because my nipples got used to constant feeding. I still use it once in a while though. I got tired of wearing the nursing bras and their cumbersome technique to open and close it. I use non-underwire bras now that I can just pull down. So much easier! The nursing pillow is now used for shielding the border of the bed, so my little one doesn’t fall down when sleeping in our bed.
Did you buy a breastfeeding product or accessory that was totally useless? Have trouble with a particular product?
