I am hoping I can breast feed you hear about these whisperers and lactation specialist so many friends have had issues and all I can do for now as I await the little one is to read up learn how the pumps work get some tips from friends and hope for the best. My goal is to breast feed all day except for one of the feedings at night to do formula – I got this tip from a lot of friends – it will also give my husband opportunity to feed and bond with baby. But there is so much to know thanks to my friends at https://www.lansinoh.com that are helping me learn and gifted me some beautiful items to start really reading up on instructions etc – I will document how I do come November but for now I wanted to put this out there for tips & tricks and talk through the beautiful items I plan to use on this journey.
I fear failing and not being able to feed my baby – I also fear if it hurts – and just thinking about it – I think it is beautiful but also in some ways something I will have to get used too? I feel like I have been brave in many cases so it is something be brave – try not to be fearful and just do it — it is like now I have gestational diabetes and I had to prick my finger 5x a day and I was like this is not going to happen and at first my husband had to do it for me but he isn’t with me during week and now I just do it myself – you get over your fears – you try to figure out the best process and sometimes you succeed. I hope I am successful on this journey and thank anyone helping in the process. A bit about Lansinoh –
Smartpump™ Double Electric Breast Pump
The latest addition to the Lansinoh family of pumps uses Bluetooth technology to connect seamlessly to the Lansinoh Baby App, giving moms the opportunity to track pumping sessions, baby’s activities and more, helping to simplify the routines that come with being a new mom.
A hygienic closed system design keeps breastmilk from backing up into the motor or tubing to help prevent mold and bacteria. It can be used as a double electric pump or single electric pump.
Lansinoh’s breastpump provides time-saving pumping efficiency without causing pain or discomfort. Three customizable pumping styles and eight different suction levels allow selection of the perfect settings for comfort and maximum milk production. It’s perfect for busy moms.
Moms can also pump directly into Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags with the use of any Lansinoh pump to save precious breastmilk and time.
Loving how this product has so many functions :
HPA® Lanolin for when you’re on-the-go! Lanolin Minis come in a pack of 3 and provide the safest, most effective relief for breastfeeding moms experiencing nipple soreness. Apply a pea-sized amount after each feeding to soothe and protect sore, dry nipples.
Our cream is a 100% natural, single-ingredient product, which means it’s safe for both mom and baby and contains no additives or preservatives. HPA® Lanolin is hypoallergenic and we are proud to be the #1 recommended nipple cream by lactation consultants and doctors in the US. Yep Nipple Cream in your cosmetic bag look at all the reasons why you don’t have to be just using it for breast feeding comfort https://www.lansinoh.com/lansinoh-hpalanolin-cosmetic-uses/
These I think are needed as well and seem so gentle – Many moms experience sore breasts and nipples in the final weeks of pregnancy and first few days after baby is born. Lansinoh® Ultra Soft Nursing Pads are designed to gently protect new moms from leaks in the early days. They are dependable and discreet for leak-proof protection
I think this will come in handy when I start really working a lot again — Lansinoh® has partnered with Simple Wishes™ to provide pumping moms with the ultimate time saver. Not only does the Simple Wishes™ Hands-Free Pumping Bra free up your hands during pumping sessions, it also helps create a better seal for your pump flanges, improving suction. Works with all electric breast pumps. Available in XS to L, or L-Plus.
