Nursing Pads - disposableLansinoh1 boxOnce your milk comes in you will leak sometimes when your boobs are full, these are pads so your bra/shirt don't get wet. They sell both disposable and reusable cloth ones...I use both, around the house cloth and disposable when I go out. You may leak through the cloth, that's why I wear the disposable out.

Glycerin Gel PadsNUK Warm or Cool Relief Packs1-2 packsOnce your milk comes in you may have some discomfort (or for it, down right pain) for a few days until your supply regulates itself...I found that these helped a lot, I have 2 packs (4 total) so that I would always have a set that were cold in the freezer.
