The Breastfeeding Supplies You Shouldn’t Waste Your Money On

The Breastfeeding Supplies You Shouldn’t Waste Your Money On

We all know having and raising a baby is expensive, but so many baby supplies pushed at parents are just not necessary — and that includes accessories for nursing mums. US News rounded up several breastfeeding items that are a waste of money.

Among them are nursing clothing, such as tops or bras with special pull-down areas, as well as nursing covers. You can easily convert an old sports bra into a nursing bra yourself, the article suggests, or use a large scarf as your cover up instead of a fancy nursing cover.

Similarly, instead of buying “special” bags for freezing breast milk, regular freezer bags will do.

I have to admit, I bought into the whole nursing (and baby) accessories industry and now have a lot of useless tank tops with hidden holes in them.
