For moms who have breastfed-please help!

I plan on breastfeeding but clueless on what i all need! I would like to use the Dr Brown bottles. Do I have to use all Dr Brown stuff then?
Storage bottles or bags, freezer stuff, pads, cream, insulated to go bag... theres so much!!
Please let me know what stuff i need! Greatly appreciate it, thank you!

I'm currently breastfeeding my second baby
You'll need nursing bras
pads (I buy reusable ones)
a pump if you plan on going out or if you go back to work
there's special bags to freeze your milk in (can get any kind)
Lanolin cream is good for the first little bit
Don't spend a ton on any bottles right away because your baby might not take to them! My first had a difficult time with bottles and it took 2 or 3 different types till we found one he would use.

I used disposible breast pads. Cost you more but soooo much easier. I couldn't pump so only needed bottles when stopped breastfeeding.

Depending on your anatomy, you might need a nipple shield; with my first my nipples were inverted so she couldn't latch on. But the hospital gave me one and I only needed it for a couple weeks. I don't think I will have the same problem this time.

Id avoid bottles until you have breast feeling established. you don't want your baby to get nipple confusion. congrats mama :)
