Journey in Bliss: Effortless Holiday Travel for Pumping Moms

Traveling as a new mom can be both exciting and challenging, especially when you're nursing. Ensuring comfort, convenience, and a dose of style while on the move can be overwhelming.

Here we explore valuable travel tips alongside three essential nursing bras that cater to comfort, functionality for travelling, and feminine style as you gather with family and/or your in-laws.

I’ve tried these and they work:

  • Plan Ahead: Preparing a travel itinerary that aligns with your baby's feeding schedule can make the journey smoother. Consider planning breaks or stops for feeding sessions to avoid unnecessary stress.
  • Pack Essentials: Don't forget to pack breast pump accessories and nipple cream in your carry-on bag. Cross check you pack the cable and charger. Having these essentials readily available can save you from unexpected discomfort or emergencies.
  • Comfortable Clothing: Choose loose-fitting, comfortable clothing for travel. Layers and nursing-friendly tops or dresses make breastfeeding more manageable while keeping you stylish and comfortable.
  • Stay Hydrated and Nourished: Traveling can be exhausting, so make sure to stay hydrated and carry healthy snacks for energy. A refillable water bottle is a lifesaver, especially during flights or long drives.

Some of our favorite travel styles:
