The journey of breastfeeding is a beautiful and transformative experience, filled with moments of tender connection and unwavering love between mother and child. Yet, amidst the joy, there are usually (numerous!) challenges, as new mothers navigate the demands of nourishing their little ones while adapting to their changing bodies. Thoughtful gifts can go a long way in supporting and encouraging breastfeeding moms, easing their journey and fostering a sense of well-being. Here's my round up of the best ten gifts for breastfeeding moms in 2023.

9. Haircare by Jim & Henry: Not just for Curly Girls
Made from the finest, natural ingredients and nothing more, the Jim and Henry range is the only haircare that I allow to touch my family's scalp! As moms, we are juggling a million things, and sometimes our hair is the last thing on our minds. But we deserve to feel beautiful too, even when we're short on time. As the proud owner of a glorious Afro which is super dry and easily knotted, I love that the Jim and Henry range makes styling and detangling quick and pain-free. Highly recommended for anyone with curly, wavy, Afro or thick hair. Give a gift of natural haircare that won't cost the planet. Get 10% off with discount code: BFM here.
10. Loving, Reliable Childcare
There is quite simply no greater gift that any mother of young children would appreciate more than loving, reliable childcare so that she can take care of her own basic needs for a while. If you can, offer to look after her children for a period of time so that she can do whatever she likes for a few hours! It may sound insignificant, but it will be a game changer for her. Especially If the mother are giving is exclusively breastfeeding, do not pressure her to leave her babies for any period of time if she is simply not ready to do so. Instead, offer to babysit in her home, whilst she showers or eats hands-free! No discount code for this one, sorry 😉
