NursElet® provided me with these nursing essentials, but all opinions are honest and my own.
As I prepared for the arrival of our dear Evie, I knew that I wanted to breastfeed. I consider myself fortunate to be able to do so with my third child, and it’s something I don’t take lightly.
Knowing that it had been a couple years, I began to refresh my knowledge and look into some must-haves for this time around. I had the pleasure of learning about this amazing company called NursElet® that designs many wonderful products with the nursing mama in mind!
The first item I received from them was their original NursElet® breastfeeding shirt holder and reminder bracelet.
I know from experience that it can be incredibly frustrating trying to latch a baby while keeping your shirt in place, and this solves that problem!
In addition, It can be worn on your wrist and serve as a reminder of what side you need to feed from. I used it for this purpose starting in the hospital which was incredibly helpful in those blurred first days. I still use it in this way because preggo brain just turns in to mom brain and I’ve got it times 3! 😉
The NursElet® bracelet comes in different color options and can also be used for a mess-free pumping session. I love when items can serve more than one purpose!
Next on my list were nursing pads.
Sure, there were some things I forget from my last baby, but I clearly recall experiencing embarrassing leaks and a heavy let down. Knowing this, I wanted comfortable and absorbent nursing pads that would last!
The NursElet® Bamboo Washable Nursing Pads certainly fit the bill. I love the different colors, and they are soft which is incredibly helpful when you’re experiencing tenderness in those early days.
I used disposable nursing pads in the past, and I feel great about choosing a more eco-friendly and cost-effective route this time.
I nursed my firstborn for a year, my second baby for 22 months, but I have no idea how long this sweet baby of mine and I will be on this breastfeeding journey.
We are nearly 8 weeks in and have established a pretty good rhythm. Regardless of the length of time, I’m glad I have some key items from NursElet® to help me feel as comfortable as I can along the way!
