Breastfeeding Cover

A lightweight and breathable breastfeeding cover is essential if you prefer discreet  breastfeeding in public. Opt for a cover made from natural fabrics such as cotton or bamboo that can withstand hot weather. Look for designs that offer ample coverage while allowing airflow to keep both mother and baby comfortable.

Breastfeeding Pillow

A supportive breastfeeding pillow can greatly enhance breastfeeding comfort and positioning. Choose a compact and portable pillow that provides adequate back and arm support. Look for a pillow that is easy to clean and made from breathable materials to prevent overheating. Having a breastfeeding pillow on hand ensures proper alignment during feeding sessions, reducing strain on the neck, back, and shoulders.

Breast Pads

Leakage can be a common issue for breastfeeding mothers. Disposable or reusable breast pads are essential to absorb any leaks and keep you feeling dry and comfortable. Opt for pads made from organic and breathable materials that are gentle on the skin. Be sure to pack an adequate supply of breast pads to handle any unexpected leaks while out and about.

Nursing Bras

Investing in comfortable and well-fitting nursing bras is vital for breastfeeding mothers. Look for bras with easy access, such as front clasps or drop-down cups, to facilitate convenient nursing. Choose bras made from soft and breathable fabrics that provide proper support. It's a good idea to include at least one spare nursing bras in your baby bag to ensure you have a spare on hand.

Spacious baby bag

When selecting a bag to accommodate bulky breastfeeding accessories, it's essential to prioritise ample space and functionality. VANCHI bags offer the perfect solution with their thoughtfully designed compartments and generous storage capacity, making them an ideal choice for nursing mothers. With VANCHI, you can confidently carry all your breastfeeding essentials while maintaining style and convenience.

Breast Pump and Accessories

For mothers who need to express milk, a portable breast pump is a must-have item. Opt for a compact and lightweight electric or manual breast pump that suits your needs. When out and about, remember to pack spare breast pump parts, storage bags or containers, and a cooler bag with ice packs to maintain the freshness of expressed milk.

Water Bottle and Snacks

Breastfeeding can be thirsty and hunger-inducing work. Stay hydrated by carrying a reusable water bottle filled with fresh water. Have nutritious snacks like trail mix, fruit, or granola bars on hand to keep your energy levels up. It's important to choose snacks that are easy to eat with one hand, as you may need to breastfeed while snacking.

Burp Cloths and Bibs

Spills and messes are inevitable during breastfeeding and burping sessions. Look for absorbent and easy-to-clean materials. Always remember to include several burp cloths and bibs in your baby bag to quickly clean up any spills or spit-up.
