Finding the right products for your breastfeeding process is important, especially when it comes to breast pump as there are many different types and quality to choose from. The good one will help you keep your milk supply flowing and not causing any pain. For me, I always prefer electric pump than the manual.
I started pumping as early as second day after giving birth to baby Terena so that she can benefit from my supply even when I’m not around with her or need more sleep. She has been bottle-fed (with breastmilk) as early as 2 days old and at least every two days.
And recently, I’ve started using this Silent Electric Breast Pump by Pigeon.
It’s a very quiet pump with silent motor that allows me to express breastmilk without disturbing my sleeping baby in the same room, and of course doesn’t cause any pain as well.
It has a good suction strength which is adjustable. The Advanced Sealing Air Cushion also helps to painlessly stimulate a steady let-down of breastmilk. There is no backflow feature and only few parts to assemble; making it easy for pumping and cleaning. This product is easy to carry around with me because of its lightweight. Their price is very affordable compared to many other brands too.
Good breast pump should come with good nursing bottles too.
And yes, they are essential tools for you (and your babysitters) when you are in a situation where direct breastfeeding is temporarily not possible such as during illness etc.
Makes me even happier to introduce you more good stuff: Peristaltic PLUS™ Nursing Bottles – a new nursing bottle designed to mimic a baby’s natural sucking behaviour and minimise nipple confusion.
Based on extensive research on feeding babies, Pigeon bottles stimulate the three key steps of a baby’s natural sucking motion; enhances the peristaltic movement – the unique undulating motion of a baby’s tongue, which removes milk from a mother’s nipple – thus encouraging the baby to employ an unerring sucking pattern, cultivating healthy sucking behaviour.
The bottles are made from sophisticated materials, meticulous measurements and production methods, and uniquely crafted with roll-free bottle hoods. In addition, the Peristaltic PLUS nipple is made using a thick silicone rubber which is flexible and soft for your baby to drink with comfort.
I’ve been using many different milk bottles from Pigeon but this is currently my favourite. My baby seems to love and manipulate it very easily as if she was breastfed directly from me. I strongly recommend you to try them.
The Silent Electric Breast Pump and Peristaltic PLUS™ bottle (comes in two sizes) are available at leading departmental stores, supermarkets and baby product stores.
Give the needs to both, you and your little loved ones.
