Are You Breastfeeding While Traveling This Summer?
Being a breastfeeding mom also means planning ahead for your exciting summer trips! Whether you are heading to the beach, taking a family vacation, or going on a road trip, here are the things you need to bring along if you are breastfeeding while traveling.
Breastfeeding Swim Top
If you have plans for a tropical vacation or lounging by the pool, you’ll want to include the Amelia Nursing and Pumping Swim Top on your list! This is our number one choice for breastfeeding while traveling because it allows you to breastfeed without missing out on all the fun or having to change into a pumping bra for every pumping session.
The best part about this collection is the ability to mix and match it with your favorite pair of black bottoms! Every day can be a new outfit that is flattering and breastfeeding-friendly.
Wear your Amelia Swim Top to the pool, gym, or even layer it to wear throughout the day. It’s a great option for pumping on the go discreetly, whether you are at the airport or at the beach!
The last thing you want to worry about when you are on the road is having to stop somewhere to plug in your pump. That’s why having a portable pump is essential if you plan on breastfeeding while traveling!
One of our favorite options is the Pumpables Genie Advanced Portable Pump. What makes this pump stand out is how easy it is to take on the go! The pump comes with a belt clip and lanyard so you can easily attach and go. Plus, it has a rechargeable battery that can use USB-C chargers… meaning it’s possible to charge it in the car with a car charger!
Cooling and Warming Cup
The next thing you’ll want to add to your packing list is a cooling and warming cup to keep your breast milk properly stored between pumping and feeding sessions.
Junobie’s Breast Milk Cooling and Warming Cup is our go-to for traveling with breastmilk! Not only will it keep your milk cool, but it also can warm it back up before you feed your baby. This cup is super portable and can hold up to 9 oz of milk!
You’ll also need something to make breastfeeding while traveling easier in the luggage department. Having a pump bag for your travels ensures that everything will be exactly where it needs to be when you’re ready to pump.
Mimi and Pal has a few great options to choose from that are both functional and stylish! This bag has openings to run your pump cords and tubes, a wipe holder, and plenty of other storage pockets for your necessities.
Speaking of storage, another necessity for breastfeeding while traveling are the Be My Breast Friend storage bags!
These are great to have on hand to store pump parts, especially if you plan on traveling by plane this year. Not only do they keep your flanges and other pump parts clean, but they also make it easy to unpack for TSA!
