The Ultimate Baby Gift: Breastfeeding Survival Kit
From weeSpring’s guide to practical gift giving: survival kits for almost every new-baby-need. We pulled these items from our weeLists, which are weeSpring parents’ own individual lists of what got them through all of the different ages and stages.
First step, if you’re considering giving a breastfeeding essentials survival kit: check to see if your friend has a breast pump on her registry. (If no, safer bet to go with a different survival kit.) Very few expecting moms are comfortable putting all the little breastfeeding accoutrements on a gift registry, and even fewer gift-givers are bold enough to buy this stuff off-registry. But brava if you are, because this all is really a necessity. (It’s why we’ve given five in the last year.)

THE BASICS (these will run you about $40)
If you want to go big, or are putting together a group gift, consider adding:
Simple Wishes Handsfree Bra, the most popular breastfeeding item on weeSpring after a pump
Boppy or My Brest Friend, though moms will often register for this
Bamboobies Nursing Pads, because some moms find cloth pads more comfortable
