I couldn’t be more excited to be pregnant and preparing for the birth of our first child. What a fun time to be pregnant and raising little ones with all the modern technology and fun gadgets we have available to us. It sure is different from when I was a kid! I am super excited to tell you about The Hottest Breastfeeding Products of 2019. I have partnered with several companies that have gifted me products in exchange for my honest review.
The Hottest Breastfeeding Products for 2019
When I first started talking about breastfeeding with my bestie she immediately said, “You need to get a HaaKaa!” I said, a what what? I had never heard of a HaaKaa before. Well, say hello to one of the hottest breastfeeding products of 2019! The HaaKaa is easy to use, has no small parts and needs no assembly. You simply suction it to your breast and let the pump do the work for you as it draws your milk using suction. The HaaKaa is perfect for traveling as it is cord free, doesn’t need to be charged or plugged in and fits perfectly into any diaper bag. Plus, it is easy to clean and dishwasher safe!
While the HaaKaa will likely not replace your standard breast pump, it is great to use to catch milk from one breast while nursing off the other. The HaaKaa comes in a few different styles and sizes to fit your needs. Haakaa is a 100% family owned and New Zealand run company.
Over the years Haakaa has been devoted to developing products both safe to babies and their parents using environmentally friendly and safe raw materials such as stainless steel, glass, bamboo, and natural rubber. Haakaa products are safe, functional, yet stylish. They are the perfect products for modern families. All Haakaa products are designed and tested in New Zealand. Manufactured in selected advanced international factories under strict quality controls and successfully tested against the worlds highest safety standards.
Earth Mama has a wide line of organic products made for every facet of motherhood from pregnancy and baby loss, to postpartum and baby care. They carry some of the hottest breastfeeding products for 2019 because of the core values the company believes in. Which include doing no harm, using nature as the pharmacy and fostering a community amongst mothers, amongst their other values. Here of 4 of their hottest breastfeeding products.
Earth Mama mini deodorants
Earth Mama mini deodorants are perfect for throwing in the diaper bag, one in your purse, keeping one in the nursery and another on your nightstand. You never know when or where you might need to breastfeed and in the heat of summer, this can be a sweaty matter! Making this literally, one of the hottest breastfeeding products of 2019.

Earth Mama Organic Nipple Butter
Pregnancy has taught me a lot of things, like the scary truth of what can happen to your breasts and nipples when breastfeeding. But fear not, with Earth Mama’s organic nipple butter. Soothing Organic Nipple Butter is buttery and botanical-rich, lanolin-free and non-sticky. It moisturizes dry skin and brings your nipples back to their happy place. And since it just might end up in baby’s mouth, it’s non-GMO Project Verified. So there’s no need to wash it off before nursing! It is also safe to apply after each feeding or as needed. You can also feel free to slather liberally on flanges for a more comfortable pumping experience. Or other places such as your lips, cheeks, heels, cuticles, and elbows.
Earth Mama Booby Tubes
Booby Tubes are clever little, gel-free breast packs made with an organic cotton shell and filled with fresh, pliable flax seed. Use warm or cold, depending on your nursing needs. When heated, Booby Tubes deliver warm, moist heat to tender breasts; when stored in the freezer they offer cooling comfort. Traditionally used to help ease breastfeeding discomfort, heat can help encourage milk flow, avoid clogged ducts, promote let-down and comfort the symptoms of infection, and cold is used to help reduce the swelling and tenderness of engorgement and weaning. Earth Mama’s unique gel-free construction was designed with extra care to help reduce the risk of burns. Two Booby Tubes per box, one for each boob.
You can warm Booby Tubes in your microwave for 20-40 seconds, and apply as necessary. Or store in the freezer and wear them inside your bra between feedings. Talk about a great way to beat the summer heat with this hottest breastfeeding product of 2019! Be sure to wipe the organic cotton with a damp cloth to clean. But don’t submerge them in water or put them in a washing machine. The flax seeds may sprout. Seriously! After your breastfeeding journey comes to an end, you can continue to use the booby tubes as a cool pack to comfort bumps and bruises, ballooning feet and ankles. Or as a warm pack to comfort upset tummies, tired muscles, and fussy, tugged-at ears.
Earth Mama Organic Milkmaid Tea
This tea is designed to support healthy breast milk production and promote healthy lactation. As the wife of a dairy farmer, I know the importance of good milk production. In both cows and mommas alike! (Please note Organic Milkmaid Tea is not for use during pregnancy).
- USDA Certified 100% Organic by Oregon Tilth
- Non-GMO Project Verified
- Certified Kosher by EarthKosher
- Each tea bag comes wrapped in individual packaging — so you can take a single bag on the go. And if they’ve spent a few weeks living at the bottom of your diaper bag…well, they’ll still be good.
- Each tea bag has its own little love note from Earth Mama to you. How sweet!
- Serving size is 1-3 cups per day, but they recommend that you always check with your herb-knowledgeable healthcare provider to find out what’s best for you.
It is so important to stay hydrated, especially when breastfeeding. Did you know that breast milk is mainly composed of water? Making up, on average, 87% of breastmilk. That is why hydration becomes very important since breast milk production significantly increases a mother’s water loss. If you are looking for a water bottle that can be used with both hot or cold beverages, is reusable, dishwasher and microwave safe, as well as recyclable, unbreakable and eco-friendly, check out GoSili.
GoSili designs and manufactures silicone tableware products for the whole family. The excessive use and waste of disposable paper and plastic inspired the GoSili founders to create a modern line incorporating all the practical benefits that silicone has to offer. GoSili is the parent company of the award-winning children’s silicone products brand Silikids. GoSili products make the basics better by bringing an alternative to plastic, bridging the gap between great design and affordability while improving the way we live! A win-win for all! Click the link here to see the cup I got. Swap out the straw top for the travel mug lid and you can easily fill it with your Earth Mama tea! GoSili makes a variety of cups and other environmentally friendly products, making them some of the hottest breastfeeding products of 2019.
Love & Fit
We basically live in the middle of no-where. So we are super fortunate to have a small, at home gym right in our basement. Although I have not spent nearly as much time down there as I would have liked this pregnancy, that is not an excuse to not get down there once the baby is here. My plan is to let baby hang out in his born free kova baby bouncer, put on my Athena Nursing Sports Bra by Love and Fit, and hit that treadmill! We all know that babies don’t follow a schedule. So although I might think it is time to work out, the baby might think it is time to eat. That is why I love that the Athena nursing sports bra will make it easy for me to take a break, feed the baby, then get right back to my workout.
MAM Anti-Colic Bottle
For many breastfeeding mamas, there comes a time when the baby will need to enjoy that breast milk from a bottle. Or maybe you are supplementing with formula, which is done by so many for so many reasons. The next item on the list of hottest breastfeeding products is MAM anti-colic bottle. MAM bottles are made with an ultra soft silicone nipple which makes for an easy switch between breastfeeding and bottle-feeding. They are made with a base ventilation system providing a smooth milk flow which reduces air swallowed by baby, gas, and burps. The bottles wide openings and 5 parts make for easy cleaning.
MAM combines technological innovation, medical function, and contemporary design to develop superior baby care products that support a baby’s development from day one. Since MAM developed its first pacifier in Vienna in 1976, it has evolved to become a global authority on baby care product design and quality. Today MAM products are used by families in over 60 countries and on six continents making this a tried and true, hottest breastfeeding product for moms everywhere.
Boppy Nursing Pillow
I can honestly say that I do not think I have ever been to a home that has a new baby and did not have a Boppy Nursing Pillow. That is why this is one of the hottest breastfeeding products of 2019. Boppy’s nursing pillow provides support to moms as they breastfeed their precious, little one. However, it can also be used when bottle-feeding or just holding your little one to help keep your arms from getting so tired. How can something so small, seem to heavy in such a short amount of time? Thank goodness for the boppy nursing pillow!
UpSpring focuses on taking care of mom, so mom can take care of the baby. They know that breast is best and they have made breastfeeding even better. That is why everything they do is made with love and backed by science. Making their products some of the hottest breastfeeding products of 2019.
Probiotic and Colostrum Powder for Kids and Babies
As I have mentioned before, my husband is a dairy farmer and has been very concerned with knowing that I understand the importance of colostrum in newborns. Women naturally produce small amounts of colostrum before their breastmilk ever comes in. However, for us, it was important to know that our baby gets as much colostrum and probiotics as possible. The collection of bacteria the baby inherits at birth sets the stage for gut and immune health for years to come. Now there’s a way to give your child some of this gut-goodness now and for years to come.

UpSpring Milkflow Cookies, Cookie Mix and Powder Drink Mix
Milk and cookies have always gone hand in hand, but UpSpring is giving the iconic pair a whole new meaning. Milkflow is the first and ONLY lactation cookie mix that contains Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle to help naturally promote breast milk supply. UpSpring not only offers two different kinds of cookie mix but also premade cookies as well. Along with an assortment of other vitamins and supplements that can be found on their website here.
Nesting Days is a mama owned company right here in the U.S. where all the products are made in San Francisco, California. This is one of the hottest breastfeeding products of 2019 for so many reasons. Designed to hold newborns 7 to 18 pounds in the safest place possible, next to your heart. It adapts to carry the baby in three different positions to accommodate both baby and mom as the baby grows. The carrier comes in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes to ensure the perfect fit for mom or dad, and baby.
The Nesting Days carrier provides hands-free, skin-to-skin babywearing. It uses light-weight, technical fabrics in a patented tubular design that surrounds the mother’s body 360 degrees. Distributing baby’s weight evenly over her body. The side tie adjusts the tension over the baby’s back, allowing for growth and ease of use. It is intended for use at home, with baby in only a diaper for maximum skin-to-skin contact, and to be worn over clothing when on outings.
Wearing the Nesting Days skin-to-skin newborn carrier boosts oxytocin levels and lowers cortisol (science talk for more love and less stress), and increases prolactin, for better milk production and greater breastfeeding success. It also promotes healthy attachment and bonding, because the nesting days are when these begin. Newborns need help regulating their own temperature since they aren’t in that cozy womb anymore. Mom or daddy’s skin is the perfect heater for their tiny bodies. Finally, these carrier aids in learning baby’s cues, so feeding, sleeping and awake time can be more fully enjoyed.
Say hello to the next hottest breastfeeding products. One important part of breastfeeding is being able to do it anywhere, any time, and with easy access to the goods. Milk Nursingwear is truly the freshest nursing wear on the planet! Their design team is on the cutting edge of fashion and adapts the latest trends and styles for nursing wear. They keep their prices affordable and their fashions current. All fabrics are comfortable and easy to care for. Making their clothing some of the hottest breastfeeding products of 2019.
What I love about Milk Nursingwear is that so many of their adorable tops, dresses, and sleepwear come in dual function, serving as both maternity and nursing tops. Giving you more bang for your buck and longer shelf life to your clothing. At first, I was skeptical, but I found that I easily fit in the styles I received, despite being 9 months pregnant. You can tell by the cut and style that they will continue to be flattering long after baby is here. Click here to see the shirt and dress that I am wearing.
Most styles come in sizes XS to 2X and a variety of colors and patterns. They offer free shipping with a minimum purchase and sales throughout the year. Make sure to check them out and see for yourself why they are amongst my hottest breastfeeding products for 2019.
Lansinoh Simple Wishes Hands-Free Pumping Bra
The next hottest breastfeeding product of 2019 is the Lansinoh Simple Wishes Hands-Free Pumping Bra. I am so excited about this one because it really gives moms the gift of multi-tasking. This bra frees up your hands during pumping sessions, while also helping to create a better seal for your pump flanges, which improves suction. This hands-free bra works with all electric breast pumps, like the Lansinoh Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump below. It comes in 2 sizes (x small to large or large plus) and features a 10” adjustable velcro back panel for an ideal fit over time.
Think of the things you can do while pumping when you are hands-free? Or, the idea of simply doing nothing, while relaxing in your favorite nursing spot without the hassle of holding the pump in the proper place. So ideal!
Lansinoh Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump
Last but not least. The hottest breastfeeding product of 2019 has to be the Lansinoh Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump! Comfortable. Convenient. Smart. Comfort is key for a pumping mom. The Lansinoh Smartpump features soft and flexible ComfortFit flanges to hug your curves and adjustable settings to personalize for comfort. Because every mom and baby are unique, 3 different pumping styles and 8 suction levels allow you to personalize your pumping sessions to match your baby’s feeding patterns for comfort and efficiency.
Are you always connected? I know I am! So if you are like me, the Lansinoh Smartpump Double Electric Breast Pump was made for you! Bluetooth technology automatically syncs your pumping session to the Lansinoh Baby app making it a convenient and smart option for busy moms. How cool is that? The Lansinoh Smartpump uses Bluetooth to connect to the Lansinoh Baby app and automatically tracks your pump sessions. The app also provides expert tips, resources and tracking for all of baby’s activities. An LCD screen with easy touch controls makes the Lansinoh Smartpump easy to use in all environments from the bedroom to the office. It’s convenience right at your fingertips!
Getting Your Breast Pump Through Insurance
Did you know that your breast pump might be covered by insurance? Lansinoh makes it easier than ever to get a free breast pump through your insurance (if you qualify). They offer both the Smartpump and SignaturePro through their insurance program. Simply go to their website, click free breast pump and follow the directions. You will be given a list of supplies and links to the supplier’s websites. Once you select your provider (I chose Aeroflow) you will provide you insurance information and they will assist you the rest of the way.
It is never too early to start this process. Depending on your insurance coverage and deductible, you might be able to get the pump sooner rather than later. My insurance required that I meet my deductible before getting my pump, which won’t happen until I deliver the baby. But some insurance companies will send you the breast pump right away.
