Products Dr. Alyssa Berlin reccomends (products available below):
I love the Mobywrap. It really alleviates the postpartum guilt - it allows you to give to your newborn in a hands free way while subsequently attending to your other children. The ergo was great as the baby gets older and a little heavy/cumbersome for the mobywrap.
The Breast Friend really enhances the nursing process and became a member of the family. It was nice firm support for both me and my daughter and that made nursing a more comfortable and enjoyable experience.
The Nursing Covers Breastfeeding Covers by Bebe au Lait really made it easy to nurse on the go. I especially like the piece of molded plastic in the front so that I could check in with my daughter during breastfeeding without disturbing her.
The O Ball Rattle is a favorite toy in our house - mainly because my husband and I found that our kids could hold it and were amused by it at a very early age. It made car rides much more enjoyable.
