Win a Medela Swing Pump & Bamboo Camisole

Whether going back to work or simply wanting a night out, if you breastfeed, more than likely you will have to pump at one time or another (check out our recent “Tales from the Pump” post). Here’s a testimonial from a real mom on pumping…

“The first time I was spoken to about pumping I was pregnant and I thought “yea what a waste of money! That defeats the purpose of breastfeeding!”. Boy oh boy was I wrong. After my daughter was born it took two weeks for my milk supply to come in, I spent endless hours trying to figure out how to hand express/stimulate in between having her latch on before we finally caved and bought a pump. I now recommend that all expecting mothers planning to breastfeed have one on hand or at least have quick access to one, it is a great asset.” -Adalynn, mom to Hailey who was breast fed for 10 months and Cohen who is ten months and breast fed, Adalynn states ” at the rate he is going I will be lucky if he weans before college, lol”

    I learned that many mothers find it easier to express their milk in front of their baby. If you are separated from your baby you may look at a picture of your little one, listen to a tape recording of his voice or use a piece of his clothing to smell on

    Your baby needs to latch-on to the breast properly to make sure he may get enough milk and to avoid damage to your nipples.

    i learned It is recommended to eat foods in as natural a state as possible and avoid processed foods

    Breastfed babies are less prone to develop diabetes, heart diseases, eczema, asthma and other allergic disorders later in life. I hope I win I need a pump so badly!

  19. Heather Manis says:

    I learned that Breastfeeding enhances brain development. Research shows there is better visual development and visual acuity in breastfed children. Thats makes so much sense! My son has amazing eye sight. He can see an airplane when I don’t even see it. My mom didn’t nurse me, my eyes are awful.
