Tax Deduction on Breastfeeding Supplies

The 1 Thing Every Breastfeeding Mom Needs to Know Before Doing Taxes

After a woman gives birth, she is surrounded by an array of helpful products that can help the breastfeeding process, from a breast pump and pads to a boppy and cover. Many new moms know that there are a ton of different brands to pick from, but most don't realize that these products can actually be tax deductible.

According to the IRS, breast pumps and supplies that assist lactation are medical care under the Internal Revenue Code. Like obstetric care, breastfeeding supplies are "for the purpose of affecting a structure or function of the body of the lactating woman." This means that if other requirements are met, "expenses paid for breast pumps and supplies that assist lactation are deductible medical expenses."

Considering how costly these supplies are, a deduction can be a huge help for new parents this tax season!
