okay so i'm 33weeks pregnant with my secound child. I did breastfeed my first but only for a month and i still gave her formula. Well with this one i plan on exclusivly breastfeeding no formula or nuthing. I'm a single mom so i have to work full time so im gonna need to freeze milk and stuff so my mother could feed the baby while im at work. So my question is Can yall please help me with the supplies im gonna need by telling me what i would need?  i want to be set before the baby comes thanks

pump, milk storage bags, nipple cream,

my baby liked the nuk sippy bottle/cup vs regular bottle at age 3 months.  So maybe a varity of bottles to see which one baby likes.

i've seen those little freezerpacks where you pour the breastmilk into it the little cubes and then they are 1 oz each (ice cube trays). have yall ever tried any of those?

 I know alot of moms that prefer the freezer packs you are talking about and prefer those to the bags plus its going to save you money ( not buying bags all the time) A good pump, If you are able to get WIC alot of them will give you a great pump (I got a medela double elecetric) if you are returning to work or school, so that can save you money also. Breast pads either disposable or reusable I have used both and prefer disposable. As far as bottles go I would only buy 1 or 2 different ones, not a whole bunch of the same kind until you figure out what kind baby will take best. We use playtex drop ins! boppy pillows are nice when you are home. I think the biggest thing for when you go back to work is to nurse when you are with baby and pump when not! HTH

Those freezer packs are a great idea. So are plain old ice trays.
