As a new parent, infant feeding can feel simultaneously isolating and overwhelming. In the midst of looking for support and resources that will guide you and your baby on your feeding journey, you may find yourself inundated with conflicting information and judgmental commentary that you never asked for.
To help streamline that process and get you right to the real stuff (caring for YOU and for baby), here are some of Mama Glow’s favorite, tried-and-true brands built to make your feeding experience as easy, comforting, and positive as possible:
Bobbie‘s organic infant formula is inspired by EU-style recipes while meeting the United States’ FDA requirements. We love that it is the only female-founded, mom-led formula company in the US, created out of a personal need for a formula option they could trust to feed their babies. Bobbie is a great resource, especially for families who are unable to body feed their babies.
Bobbie Organic Infant Formula – $48/month
Bodily‘s breastfeeding products were designed with the support of a lactation consultant, with the intention of making nursing and pumping easier. Their soft-to-the-touch nursing bras are comfortable and comforting enough for all-the-time wear, transitioning with you through maternity and into the postpartum period.
Bodily B-Kit – $90
We’ve been long-time fans of Elvie‘s silent, wearable, wireless breast pump, which enables the feeding parent to pump on the go. Elvie is a multitasking parents’ best friend because it minimizes the time pumping takes away from everything else you want and need to do in your day. Elvie Catch fits snuggly into your bra with two slip-proof milk collection cups, so that none of that precious milk is wasted when you leak. Elvie Curve allows you to gently express from the breast that’s not “actively” in use during pumping/feeding.
Elvie Curve – $49.99
Evivo‘s probiotics for babies are designed to help reverse Newborn Gut Deficiency, which they say can contribute to issues like colic, diaper rash, fussiness, poor sleep, allergies, and even diabetes. It can be incorporated into your feeding routine, no matter how you choose to feed.
Evivo Baby Probiotic Starter Kit – $79
Frida is leading the charge when it comes to supporting birthing parents through labor and into the postpartum period, which includes infant feeding. Frida’s breastfeeding-related product suite centers self-care for the feeding parent, with offerings meant to massage clogged ducts, warm-away discomfort, soothe sore nipples, and more.
Frida Breast Care Self Care Kit – $49.99
Whether you’re struggling with low milk supply or want to be proactive about optimizing your milk production, Legendairy Milk has the supplements to help.

The Majka brand prides itself on delivering “wholesome nutrition for uncompromising moms,” and we love that their powders and bites are as nourishing as they are delicious. Majka’s products are meant to help you improve and maintain the quantity and quality of your milk supply, and come in yummy flavors like chocolate and vanilla chai.
Majka Lactation Bundle – $157
Medela‘s whole line of products is there to set parents up for success, no matter how you choose to feed your baby.

We love that they also offer an option for you to rent a hospital-grade breast pump for as long as you and your baby need to use it.
