  1. I have loved Anita nursing bras (http://www.anita.com) they can be a little more than you want to spend but worth it! I found mine on eBay with the tags sill never worn for $30. They have made all the difference. Nursing shields were also really helpful with my first and a nursing stool was very useful with my second. A trick that worked sometimes if I was having trouble getting my babies to latch I would lay down on my side and feed them.

  2. My advice:

    Find a comfortable “nursing station” (or two), and leave it set up at all times. I have a corner of the couch that’s propped up with pillows with a table right next to it. Before I sit down to nurse, I make sure that I have my phone, book, drink, remote, or whatever else I need before I start.

    Also,

    Don’t get discouraged when you don’t get two full bottles when you pump. I read that the average full-time breastfeeding mom will only pump around 1-3 oz total for one pumping session. This info made me feel a lot better about myself!
