Willow Breast Pump
In my personal opinion, pumping is one of the most difficult aspects of breastfeeding. My first son had a cleft lip and palate. After attempting to breastfeed him for the first month of his life, I had to switch to pumping exclusively because he was burning more calories trying to breastfeed than he was taking in. With pumping I was able to continue giving my son breastmilk up until his second surgery, around his 1st birthday. Willow makes pumping easier and able to accomplish while on the go.
Dock A Tot
I used Dock A Tot Deluxe and Grand with my second son. When I would place him in it on his back he was nested and calm. It was helpful for traveling because it was familiar to him. I do not recommend Dock A Tot for co-sleeping, please follow the safety guidelines on the tag or website.
It all starts here. Spinning Babies is a wonderful website with information, classes and products to assist with comfort in pregnancy and labor. I have used it for myself for comfort and with persons I am laboring to progress labor.
I carried both of my boys in Solly Baby wraps and I cannot say enough positive things about them. Comfortable, soft, easy to use. I wore them all the time. They make the most wonderful swaddles as well.
