Reviews of Breastfeeding Products, Books and Clothing

By  | 

There are lots of breastfeeding bloggers out there doing some great work and I thought it would be valuable to bring together their collective wisdom on breastfeeding and parenting product reviews. Each link takes you to the individual article or site mentioned in parentheses. I don't necessarily agree with each review, and I only profit from products purchased through Breastfeeding 1-2-3's Amazon.com store (if you find another person's product review helpful, please use her affiliate link if she offers one!) Note that I've also linked to several resources for sewing your own breastfeeding and baby-related products and free videos on breastfeeding, breast self-exam and baby massage techniques.
