    Here’s a peek of some of the finds that can help a breastfeeding mama. 

    Breast pumps


    The Spectra S1 electric breast pump from Babymama has a closed system that allows your pumped milk to go straight from breast to bottle. This protects your breastmilk from bacteria, mold, and viruses while pumping. It has customizable pump settings so you can adjust it according to your flow and find the best setting every time. You can also find other breast pump brands as well as other essentials for baby at their booth.

    Feeding bottles

    The Yoomi feeding bottle from Bunny Bubbles Baby is perfect for traveling as it warms breast milk at the right temp while your baby drinks from it! Prep time takes 60 seconds and you can use it anytime, anywhere. It has a naturally-shaped warm teat, with 6 anti-colic vents to make transitioning from breast to bottle easier and faster.

    Sterilizers

    Newborns are delicate and can easily catch viruses and illnesses passed down by adults. It’s why the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that baby feeding items should be sterilized at least once a day. The Ecomom Vray is a handy UV (ultraviolet) sterilizer that makes disinfecting baby’s things easier and can sterilize other small items, like toys, phones, makeup brushes, and even clothes. Sulit!

    Pump bag

     

    If you’re a breastfeeding, working mama, you’d need an insulated pump bag to store your milk while you pump in the office. This stylish, waterproof bag from Manila Kidz has two layers of storage and comes with a free ice pack so you can pump on the go without worrying your milk would spoil.

    If you’re looking for a statement outfit, this jumpsuit from Mome is perfect for you. It allows you to move freely while breastfeeding — just pull on the sides so baby can latch!

    This comfortable top from Inang’s Collection opens at the side for easy breastfeeding access.

    Nursing covers

    Some babies can get fussy and having a nursing cover on can help keep them calm down (and maybe fall asleep faster). This cover from Poncho Baby not only helps keep mommy’s privacy, it also has versatile use. Try it as a stroller cover, baby carrier canopy, and blanket!

    Intimates

     

    This nursing camisole from Valianne’s Trends can double as innerwear and sleepwear. You can also use it as a nursing bra as the chest is padded. It's lightweight and made with stretchable fabric for added comfort.

    Supplements, tints, and creams

    Breastfeeding can wear a mom's breasts out so she'll need this organic nursing salve by Buds Organic Philippines to relieve cracked and sore nipples. Made with sunflower, jojoba oils, and shea butter, this lightweight gel cream makes breastfeeding your baby more comfortable.

    One of the questions breastfeeding moms often ask us is if they can have their hair colored. And, yes, technically, they can. Herbatint Philippines offers a way for moms to dye their hair without the ammonia, resorcinol, parabens, alcohol and fragrances. Their Permanent Hair Colour Gel is enriched with eight organic herbal extracts and is a gentle way for moms to upgrade their look!

    Moringa is said to be effective in increasing a woman’s breastmilk supply. Try VPharma’s Mega Malunggay capsules, which are made of pure moringa leaves and can be taken as early as 32 weeks of pregnancy to stimulate breastmilk production. But make sure to ask your doctor first before taking any supplements, especially while you are pregnant.
