Happy Friday Friends! I wanted to share with you my pumping and breastfeeding station. I saw the idea on Pinterest before my daughter arrived and it was a life-saver once she was here! I lived in the living room when she was a newborn and this cart was always by my side. If you are breastfeeding, this cart is a must-have. You can have your snacks, water, nipple shield, phone, burp cloths, postpartum pain meds, etc. all within arms reach. If you’ve breastfed a newborn before, you know you’re in feeding jail for about 30 minutes at a time, 10 times a day. That’s a lot of sitting time. Trying to move and get things while you are nursing a hangry baby is impossible but this setup will save you from that.
My daughter is almost 11 months old so the cart is definitely not as full as it once was. Now, it’s more of a pumping station than a breastfeeding station but we still have it out in our living room because it’s so convenient.
On the top shelf, I like to keep the baby monitor, remotes, my pump, Airpods, hand sanitizer, and nipple cream.
On the second shelf, I have this Target bin where I keep my breastmilk storage bags. In the early days, I kept a ton of burp cloths on this shelf too.
The bottom shelf has an extension cord resting on it for all my chargers (phone, laptop, and pump). Also on the shelf is a box of nursing pads and the Lansinoh Breast Therapy Gel Packs.
That’s it, super simple and so handy.
