Re: What do you consider essential for a new breastfeeding mom??
for me, the list is:
"my breast friend" nursing pillow, nursing bras and pads, lansinoh nipple cream, a good breastfeeding book, this forum (which you've already found ), supportive family and friends, a good pump if you are going to pump (i have the medela PIS advanced), and a bottle of water...remember...drink to thirst!
HTH! good luck!
