Your 10 "Breast-Friends" for Breastfeeding

The Top 10 "breast-friend" products that will keep you comfortable during your breastfeeding journey.

Whilst packing your hospital bag with slippers, undies and onesies and filling the drawers in your baby's nursery, we sometimes may forget about the items we'll need to keep us comfortable and healthy for a breastfeeding journey ahead.

We've compiled a list of our 10 favourite breastfeeding products.

The List:

#1: A comfy Nursing Chair - The Nuage Jolie Rocker

Nursing is a precious ritual – and while you’re nourishing your baby, you deserve an empathetically-designed chair to support you. The Jolie Rocker and Ottoman set is an elegant blend of style and structure that will seamlessly flatter your home’s existing colour palette, with a grand silhouette that punctuates the room.  The extra tall nursing pillow provides enhanced support for weary backs and can be interchanged with the lower pillow in the set for a relaxed lounge aesthetic, while the Ottoman relieves lower back tension for comfort beyond compare.
