Newborn mums are truly modern-day heroes. The ability to give and nurture life is one of the most significant responsibilities a woman can take. That’s why on this battlefield, you are not alone. And for this reason, we listed several “weapons” you might need to take on life’s toughest challenges… baby feeding. Below, is our checklist for every newborn mum must have.
Loads of bibs and burp cloths
Having a newborn means lots of burps, spits, sneezes, milk dribbles, sneezes, and more. Make sure to have loads of bibs and burp cloths within your reach 24/7. It should be noted that an estimated number of eight to 14 bibs and burp cloths might do the trick depending on how often you do laundry.
Milk storage containers
Don’t miss your bub’s feeding schedule. Milk storage containers store your excess milk and let you have milk on-the-go. Even when you’re not around, you can make sure that little one gets all the milk he or she needs. Therefore, put this in your newborn mum must have checklist.

These bottles are also anti-colic, which reduces air swallowed during feeding, so your bub feels less gassy. For a comfortable feed, slow-flow, medium-flow, and fast-flow teats with screw rings are also available and compatible with the bottles.

If you have trouble nursing, the best way to get that much-needed milk supply is a quality breast pump. Breast pumps increase milk supply and can be manual or electric. Or, if you are busy and need to pack your baby’s meal for the day, a breast pump can speed up the process. Putting this one in your newborn mum must have checklist? Absolutely!

Steriliser, Dryer, and Warmer
Prevent the spread of bacteria and diseases from tap water, uncleaned milk remains, and contact from unwashed hands in your milk containers. Having a baby bottle steriliser, dryer, and warmer gives you peace of mind against possible sickness and hospitalization.

Pack all your necessities and make sure you have all the stuff you need in one go. A regular bag might do the trick but having a bag designed for newborn mums makes all the difference. You’ll get the size and compartments you need for all the knick-knacks you might need along the way.
Must-try: Are you an on-the-go breastfeeding mum? Pack your Eonian Breast Pump with the Eonian Care On-the-go Companion Cooler Bag ($34.95).

Give your baby a better latch and access to your milk with a nursing pillow. Generally, a good position is when they are a little lower than your breast as they snuggle. So if you find it hard to position your baby, you may want to try and get one.
As you breastfeed, experiencing discomfort and soreness is quite common. You might need a pumping bra that fits well and lets you nurse easily. Skip the pain and get yourself an excellent pumping bra. Undoubtedly, your body will thank you for it!

Breast or nursing pads absorb milk leaks during feeding. It’s helpful to have these pads inside your bra to keep your clothes dry. Different styles, shapes, sizes, and colours are available in the market and can either be reusable or disposable.

Cream for sore nipples
Sore nipples are one of the most common problems every mum encounters. These are usually caused by poor-fitting flanges (funnels) or improper use of breast pumps. To alleviate soreness, experts recommend nipple creams made from pure lanolin for skin moisture and healing. Lanolin is safe for your baby, so you don’t have to worry about adequately washing it off before breastfeeding.
Must-try: Always use correct flange sizes and check out the Eonian Care Two Large Size Breast Shields Complete Kit ($30) for your pumps. Undoubtedly, you can also make pumping more comfortable with the Eonian Care Breast Pump Massage Cushion Accessory ($14.95) to reduce nipple discomfort.
