Welcome to your breastfeeding journey! These are my tried and true nursing essentials. It may seem like a lot, but many of these are only needed early on and can be purged once you get through the initial period of breastfeeding, typically the "fourth trimester" or the first 3 months after baby arrives.
Disclaimer: I by no means wish to exclude gender non-conforming individuals who may be chestfeeding, so please consider yourself included! Because I can speak only from my own experience, both hetero- and gender-normative language is used in this post. I am willing to learn but I do not expect you to teach me, so if you feel this post needs work simply let me know and I'm happy to do some additional research!
Okay, let's get started! I've broken this down into 2 parts, post-birth, and the full breastfeeding journey.
For the leaky fourth trimester (1-3 months)
