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
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 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.
