Mother’s Day gift guide for breastfeeding moms

Mom with baby Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and if you're looking for the perfect gift we have your covered!

Breastfeeding is one of the most challenging parts of being a new mom. Giving the nursing mom in your life a present that will make her feel better - and feel loved - is the perfect way to show her that you support her while also making her feel special. Here are a few of our favorite gifts!

Breastfeeding Gift Basket
Who doesn’t love a gift basket!! How about getting together some of the essentials for a nursing mom, including nipple cream, nursing pads, water bottle (you’ve got to stay hydrated), ChapStick, her favorite snacks and lactation tea. We also suggest adding a hand written notes with a few words of encouragement for the special nursing mom in your life!

Silver Nursing Cups
If you haven’t heard of these – you’ll thank us later! These special protective nursing cups help heal and prevent cuts, wounds, cracks, soreness and infections. They’re also really great for those who are dealing with cracked nursing nipples. They’re easy to clean, too. You can start using them right away and they won’t change the taste or smell of breast milk.

Dimmable night light
These are great for those midnight feeds! You can control the light in the nursery or bedroom which will hopefully help the little one fall back to sleep quickly (and help mom get back to bed). We found several of these nightlights on Amazon for around $20.

Nursing Pajamas
Having something comfy and cozy to relax at night and sleep in is so important. Plus, it feels a little luxurious when you may not actually feel that way. Our high-quality pajamas are key to adjusting to feeding schedules too. Nursing Queen uses lightweight and breathable fabric that is comfortable and has minimal show-through. Of course, they allow for easy access with each feeding. 

Nipple Balm 
A nipple balm or cream is always a great stocking stuffer. It’s great to find one that also works with pump flanges! When choosing one, think about what’s in the cream. Does it have a strong smell? What about the texture? Read some of the reviews – or stock up on her favorite brand!

Nursing Tee with Matching Baby Onesie
Who doesn’t love to match their mini!! We have some adorable matching sets with both long and short sleeve options. Our berry and forest green Mama cursive tees and matching baby onesies are both best sellers and perfect for the spring and summer.  These tees have zipper nursing access.

Gift Basket 
Breastfeeding is an exhausting process, so if she gets a few moments alone, why not help her pamper herself? Put together a spa basket with lotion, bath bombs, scrubs, face masks and slippers. She may not be able to go to a spa right now, but you can give her the next best option. 

Gift card
You can never go wrong with a gift card! How about a card to mom’s favorite coffee shop or the spa! We have gift card as well. So if you’re looking for a last minute gift we can set up an e-gift card in just a few seconds.

Sizing- Fit Quiz!

NQ size chart

All of our designs fit true-to-size with a relaxed fit (which compensate for extra weight and a larger chest). Most of them also have an A-line fit, which means they fit across the chest/shoulders but flow away from the body so your waist and hip measurements don't matter.

Our sizes are similar to maternity-wear: order your pre-baby size. If you're between sizes, size down. Typically, the best way to determine your size is to follow your pre-baby size in numbers on the chart (4/6, 8/10, etc). 

Plus Sizes: We follow a standard U.S. plus chart. Our plus sizes range from 1X-3X. NOTE: An XXL (in misses) is a size 1X in plus sizing.
