Definitely a pillow. I have the boppy, but I've read good things about the breastfeiend pillow. Storage bags because you will end up using a lot if you pump (which you will if you go back to work) I love the kiinde system but the bags are pricey. I don't mind though because I don't have an oversupply and don't use tons of them. A hands free bra for pumping. Nipple cream. I second the nursing tanks. I love them! I never needed nursing pads but it doesn't hurt to have them around.
On a side note do plenty of research on breastfeeding before and during. For me it was not as easy as I thought it would be. (Who knew something women have been doing for thousands of years could be so hard?!) kellom.com is a great website. Use the lactation consultant. Ask questions-which I found difficult since I didn't know what to ask. If you're having trouble have someone check for tongue tie. Then get a second opinion. The only reason I'm still breastfeeding at 16 weeks is because of that second opinion and getting it clipped.
