Our Favorite Finds for Taking Care of the Girls

The Best for Your Breasts

You must, you must, you must respect your bust. For that, here are five of our all-time favorite ways to show the girls some appreciation.

Simple Wishes Hands-Free Pumping Bustier
Ladies, let freedom ring! Use your pumping time to do something really productive — like blow-dry your hair ($39).

Lansinoh Lanolin Nipple Cream
Sure, it helps soothe and heal nipples after breastfeeding ($10), but the real reason we picked this cream is that it doubles as a shiny, long-lasting lipgloss.

1 in the oven organic sleep bra!

1 in the Oven Organic Sleep Bra
One of pregnancy’s best-kept secrets: wearing a comfy, barely there bra ($44) at night will save you from back pain during the day.

LilyPadz Silicone Nursing Pads
These silicone, reusable nursing pads ($23-$38) actually prevent breast milk leaks, not just absorb them. Plus, they’re whisper thin and can be worn under swimsuits and tank tops.

glamourmom nursing bra tank!

Glamourmom Nursing Tanks
A must-have for moms who breastfeed. Easy-to-release clips (look, Ma! One hand!) give you access to the goods without putting baby down. The extra length keeps muffin tops covered ($34).

Now that the girls are squared away, check out our all-time favorite finds for playtime, mealtime, and bedtime.
