Favorite Nursing Products

First of all let me say that I have been reading all the blogs, but mostly from my phone, and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to post a comment! I can write a comment, but then there is no button for me to post it! Very frusterating, hoping to have a new phone and new service very soon! Anywho, I LOVE nursing Gemma, so I thought I would share some of my favorite products and want to know if any of you have any different products that you can't live without!
   The very first thing that I used for nursing was the Boppy, I hated it! We got a "free" one from the NICU and Gemma could never stay on it, and rolled into the space between me and the boppy, very frusterating and hard for her to nurse effectively. My sister had given me her MY BREASTFRIEND nursing pillow, and I thought it looked so wierd and that I could never use that, but it quickly became my go to pillow!
This pillow is nice and flat and firm! That was a huge thing for me, especially b/c I was new at this, I needed a pillow that really helped me to hold Gemma in the right way. I really liked how it also goes behind your back to help give you support where you need it, so you don't need tons of other pillows to support your back.
     The second item that has saved me time and time again is the UDDER COVER! lol I love the name. I had no idea how to nurse without having my entire breast exposed at the begining, that if I had to nurse Gemma somewhere it wasn't a huge ordeal. And now it helps keep Gemma focused on eating instead of what is going on around her.
The third and most amazing item that I have purchased is the SKINIES nursing Tank. AMAZING!!! I can nurse anywhere anytime and not be worried about what kind of top I'm wearing. This tank goes under any shirt and lays flat over my bra. It also helps slim down my belly! I dont' always need the udder cover, especially when I'm just with family. This tank has the holes cut out so all you have to do is reach under and undo your bra! It hides your belly and really you can't tell that I'm nursing when I am wearing it.

I would be very interested to know if anyof you have tried any of these products or have anyothers that you just love!!

Thank you for posting those items. I'm due in less than 4 weeks and I've been trying to find nursing tanks. The Skinies might just be what I've been looking for. :)
