10 Maternity + Nursing Must-Haves

Posted on 17 May 2018

While it's tempting to blow your entire budget on new things for your baby, they'll be out of that size 0-3m romper in no time. While you most certainly SHOULD prepare well and splurge a little on your new bundle, don't forget to invest in quality items for your maternity + nursing experience. Here are a few of our must-have items from our friends Figure8Maternity. They have everything you need, but these are just our favorites! ;)


ophelia maternity dress

Ophelia Off-the-Shoulder Bump Friendly Maxi Dres:

The gorgeous color, flattering waist, and cute off-the-shoulder style make this a winner not just during pregnancy, but after too! Tie the belt above your bump for the cutest look!



birthing gown for hospital

The BG Birthinggown (with Pockets)

Make your hospital room feel as homey as possible during your stay for your labor and delivery in this comfy gown. It provides coverage, comfort, style, and functionality - allowing you to be in whatever position you need while birthing without totally exposing you. A must for your recovery too!



maternity swim suit

Carrie 2-Piece Maternity Tankini:

Bandeau top? Check. Adjustable side ties? Double check (because we definitely need them!)  This suit will be a must for your maternity summer wardrobe. 


maternity compression socks for swollen legs during pregnancy

Vim & Vigr 15-20 mmHg Women's Stylish Compression Socks: 

Compression socks start at the ankle and go up the leg to prevent swelling and varicose veins during pregnancy, while simultaneously energizing your legs to alleviate achiness. Yes, please!



belly oil for itchy pregnant belly


Motherlove Pregnant Belly Oil

Not only is this luxurious belly oil all natural, but it can also be used on your entire body. The oil helps to prevent stretch marks, relieve itchy skin, prevent scarring, and add moisture to the whole body. We can't say "yes" fast enough!


pregnancy safe face wash skincare

Mambino Organics New Beginnings Pore Refining Face Wash

Choosing your skincare during pregnancy can be tricky because you want to be sure all the ingredients are safe for you + baby, but also actually give you nice skin. Mambino Organics is one you can trust to gently exfoliate your pores, nourish your skin, and even out your texture.


maternity and nursing pajamas

Roxanne 5-pc. Nursing PJ Set with Matching Baby Gown

This super soft nursing friendly top and PJ pant set is cute, comfy, and perfect for late-night feedings or all day lounging with your baby. This PJ set will be your new favorite way to unwind with your baby. It comes complete with a matching robe (with detached belt) and baby gown (0-3 months.) SO cute!


supplement to increase milk output

Motherlove More Milk Plus:

More Milk Plus is a natural, safe, and effective way to quickly increase milk let down for breastfeeding moms. 


nipple balm for breastfeeding

Mambino Organics Organic Calendula Nursing Nipple Balm:

Sore nipples are an unwelcome side effect of breastfeeding your little one. This nursing balm can ease the pain - and it's so safe that you don't even have to wash it off before your little one feeds. Soothe your irritated, chapped nipples while still keeping baby safe.


postpartum underwear for labor and delivery

Pretty Pushers Postpartum Underwear 2-Pack:

The hours and days following your delivery are pretty uncomfortable. The Pretty Pushers Disposable Underwear are made with a drawstring rather an elastic to soothe your sore body. There's even an inner pocket for an ice pack (because yes, you will need to ice your girly bits.)


nursing scarf

Bebe Au Lait Premium Cotton Jersey Nursing Scarf:

Versatile, comfortable, and very stylish, nursing scarves add a bit of fashion to the functionality of a garment to help protect your privacy while nursing. Bebe Au Lait scarves are made from 100% premium cotton jersey so they won't be itchy or rough on yours or your baby's skin. Comes in a variety of patterns, too!
