World Breastfeeding Week takes place 8/1 through 8/7 this year, celebrating breastfeeding around the world and educating the public on its benefits. Held in more than 120 countries, this week seeks to inform and normalize breastfeeding's benefits in every culture, while also working to make it more accessible for mamas everywhere.

While there's no right way to feed your baby (fed is always best), breastfeeding prevents hunger and nutrition for mamas who don't have other means of feeding baby. In celebration of this week, we asked our editors to share the products that helped them on their breastfeeding journey.

Here are some of our favorite breastfeeding products, from nursing-friendly clothing to pumping gear:

Earth Mama Nipple Butter

Breastfeeding is a beautiful thing, but it can do a number to your breasts. This organic nipple butter isn't sticky and is safe enough that you don't have to wash it off before nursing. Plus, it can soothe and heal any other parts of your body, making it a dream to keep in your skincare arsenal.
