While breastfeeding is an intimate way for new mothers to bond with their babies, it doesn’t always come naturally to moms. There is a learning curve involved and moms need any help they can get from hospital staff, doulas, family and friends. Still most women will say that nursing their little ones is one of the most beautiful experiences of motherhood. There are many products out there on the market today that are designed specifically to help guide moms while nursing and provide them with relief, comfort, and security. Melissa LaHann, mom inventor of the LatchPal nursing clip, shares her favorite gear and accessories that make great gifts for new moms.
LatchPal is a breastfeeding shirt clip that holds up a mother’s shirt during breastfeeding. Not only does LatchPal eliminate shirt re-positioning and feeding disruptions but also helps a mother nurse hands-free and in greater comfort to maximize milk flow. The patent-pending breastfeeding clip was designed with moms in mind; the multi-use solution only requires one hand to attach and latch can be used as a nursing reminder clip once your baby’s belly is full. LatchPal is a must-have breastfeeding accessory; it’s a breastfeeding essential that’s perfect for postpartum moms, pumping, and nursing in public! $14.95 www.latchpal.com
