Posted in

Mother’s Day is coming up, and it’s the perfect opportunity to show the nursing mom in your life how very appreciated she is. Breastfeeding is a full time job, and it’s no walk in the park, either. Nursing moms face challenges like painful latch, cracked nipples, engorgement, plugged ducts, low or oversupply, pumping challenges, and more. To top it off, it’s common for babies to go on nursing strikes, or conversely, to want to nurse literally around the clock! All suffice to say, nursing moms are true heroes. Show them how special they are with these thoughtful gift ideas for nursing moms. This Mother’s Day, give the gift of making breastfeeding a little bit easier, more comfortable, or memorable with these special gift ideas for nursing moms. 

Haakaa Generation 2 Silicone Breast Pump with Suction Base – $20.99

The Haaka is a truly ingenious invention. Most people don’t realize that while a baby feeds on one breast, it’s super common for milk to flow out of the other side. With the Haaka, that liquid gold isn’t destined to become a mere stain on mom’s shirt. The Haaka uses natural suction to act as a breast pump, gently extracting the breastmilk so mom can save it for later. This not only saves milk from being wasted, it can also help save mom a ton of time and effort if she’s supplementing her baby’s feedings with pumped milk. Especially for working moms who want to build up a stash of breast milk early on, the Haaka is a game changer. 

Latched Mama Nursing Wear Gift Card – $10-$300

Nursing clothes make a huge difference for new moms. When you’re just getting the hang of breastfeeding, comfortable and easy to use breastfeeding attire can make or break her confidence. Latched Mama has a huge array of stylish and comfortable maternity and nursing-friendly shirts, bras, dresses, hoodies and pullovers, and more. A gift card of any amount will be gladly received by any breastfeeding or pumping mama. 

Breastfeeding Baby Box by Jules + Anya – $79

You know you want to support her on her breastfeeding journey, but you have no idea where to begin. The Breastfeeding Baby Box by Jules + Anya is the perfect solution. This thoughtfully curated box contains all the essentials to get a mama started with breastfeeding comfortably. This box contains a Haaka breast pump, nursing pads, nipple cream, soothing gel pads, reusable hot/cold packs, and a helpful baby tracker book to record feedings. 

Teething Necklace Set by Angie + Ash – $49.99

Once moms get through the tough newborn phase, there’s barely a chance for a breather before their babies are on the move. 4+ month olds are super easily distracted, want to put everything in their mouths, and go through many weeks of teething discomfort. This teething necklace set helps with all of that! Distracted babies love to fiddle with the necklace mom wears while nursing, helping them finish their feeding. These necklaces are totally safe for babies to chew on, and in fact can help with teething pain. It’s a win, win, win for nursing moms and teething babies!

Breastmilk Jewelry Gift Card by Keepsake Mom – $100-$200

Never heard of breastmilk jewelry? Understandable, but bear with us. While it might sound weird at first, preserving a small amount of breastmilk and crafting it into a beautiful piece of jewelry is a truly meaningful way to commemorate a nursing journey. Breastfeeding is an incredibly special, fleeting time in a mom’s life. The gift of breastmilk jewelry will be cherished for a lifetime. This gift is so special but tough to surprise Mom with, so a gift card is a wonderful alternative where she can choose or design her own piece of jewelry.
