How would you like to be in for a chance to win a Lansinoh Breastpump bundle?
We have teamed up with Satellite PR to offer our readers a chance to win a brilliant prize! At the beginning of our journey which you can read about here, I did breastfeed Theo and actually used Lansinoh products so I personally highly recommend them!
The cream especially got me through those painful times as your body is not used to the changes, but the cream helped to soothe! I know many other women who highly recommend it too!
Buying the correct breast pump is key
Because our bodies go through many changes, we want to make sure that we are using the right products for us. It will always be uncomfortable to begin with to express milk, but finding the right technique for you will help out a lot. Once you get the hang of it, expressing will become easier and you’ll be able to express more milk as you start to relax.
I did use this exact breast pump and would highly recommend it. With it being manual, you will also burn extra calories (only 1 or 2 but hey it all adds up right?)
At the beginning I felt uncomfortable breast feeding
The breast pump came in very handy as I was able to express milk, freeze it and use it when needed. When I could and my body would allow, I would express as much milk as possible and freeze it in storage bags which allowed me to have a batch of milk to go. All I had to do was defrost it. This was simple enough as you can put the bag into hot water.
Milk storage makes life much easier
A better way to have milk ready to go is by storing it directly into the storage bottles. You can then feed these directly to the baby, making sure the temperature is suitable.
