These ideas of gifts for nursing moms will help you with what you get the nursing mama in your life. You can use these gift ideas for her baby shower, birthday, Christmas, or just because.
#1 Gift For Nursing Mom - Earth Mama Organics Nipple Butter
I used this nipple butter a lot after my twins were born. I started out using a different nipple cream and it didn't help at all. Then my sister got this for me and it helped so much with sore nipples from pumping. I was glad I had her to help me with my breastfeeding journey.
2. Bamboobies Washable Nursing Pads
A few days after my babies were born I started leaking milk everywhere! My sister went out and got these for me and I loved them. They're super soft and comfortable. I preferred using these at home when I was able to pump often because they weren't great if I was leaking a lot.

3. Insulated Tumbler
Nursing can make you extremely thirsty, so it's important to stay hydrated. These insulated tumblers are super cute, have a straw, and will keep your drink cold. I prefer this over a water bottle.
4. Nursing Sleep Bra
Sleep bras are so much more comfortable than a normal bra. I liked wearing these at home and obviously while sleeping.
5. Nursing Friendly Dress
If you need to wear a dress somewhere, a nursing friendly one is a must. This pretty floral dress has a secret slit under the chest for breastfeeding.
6. Motherlove More Milk Plus Pills
These Motherlove More Milk Plus Pills are an herbal supplement that helps with increasing your milk supply. It's a vegan product and has fenugreek seed, blessed thistle herb, and more in it. I had a lactation consultant in the NICU recommend these to me and taking them did increase my milk.
7. Boppy Nursing Pillow
A Boppy nursing pillow helps keep the high up for nursing. I liked using my breastfeeding pillow, but it wasn't great for tandem feeding past the newborn stage. It should work longer with one baby though.

8. Mrs. Patel's Lactation Tea
This Mrs. Patel's lactation tea is a chai tea. I've reviewed Mrs Patel's in more detail, which you can read here. I liked making this and mixing it with a little almond milk and sugar to make it a chai tea latte. Breastfeeding moms who are hoping to make more milk should try this tea.
9. Milk Maker Graphic Tee
This funny gift is a graphic tee that says milk maker. It's the perfect shirt for a nursing mama.
10. Nursing Bras
Nursing bras are a must for nursing mothers. If the mom you're going to shop for doesn't have any or has old ones, then I'm sure she'd love a pack of new nursing bras.
11. Bamboobies Disposable Nursing Pads
These bamboobies nursing pads are disposable. I liked to use these when I would leave the house because they are more absorbent than the reusable nursing pads.
12. Multi-Use Nursing Cover
These multi-use nursing covers are super cool. They can be used for many things, including a nursing cover and a car seat cover. Personally, I didn't like using nursing covers, but I know some women do.
I did love these for car seat covers though. They're good to put over your new baby to keep them warm and so people can't touch them.
13. Lansinoh Breast Therapy Pack
This breast therapy pack can be hot or cold. When they're hot it helps with milk let-down and when they're cold it helps with engorgement.
14. Haakaa Manual Breast Pump
These Haakaa manual breast pumps are really popular right now. I know a lot of women like them. You can use it on one breast while nursing with the other. It has really good reviews on Amazon.
15. Breast Milk Storage Bags
If mama is pumping, then she'll go through a lot of these breastmilk storage bags and will always be happy to receive more. As a new mom I didn't have a lot of time to go to the store for things like this, so I really appreciated when I got them as a breastfeeding gift.
16. Pumping Bra
A pumping bra makes it so mama can be hands-free while pumping. This way it will be easy for her to do other things while pumping. We all know new moms have a lot to do and pumping can take away from it.
17. Lactation Cookies
I didn't use these specific lactation cookies, but I've heard that they help you make more milk.
