Breastfeeding has been something that I have been blessed to be able to do with all of my children so far. I have worked full time with the last two and although it’s been difficult to do at times I’ve been able to successfully breastfeed for at least a year. I’ve been able to do this with the help of a double electric breast pump and pumping 3-5 times daily (on work days). I’ve been a fan of Philips Avent for a long time now so when they agreed to be a sponsor for A Winter Wonderland of Babies I knew they would be an amazing fit! Philips Avent sent both Courtney and I the Philips Avent Double Electric Comfort Breast Pump and a few Philips Avent Natural Bottles for use when our babies arrive.
There are many tricks to successful pumping. In my opinion, being relaxed and comfortable are two of the most important “tricks”. The Philips Avent Double Electric Comfort Breast Pump was designed with that in mind.
“When you are comfortable and relaxed, your milk flows more easily. That is why we created our most comfortable breast pump yet: Sit comfortably with no need to lean forward and let our soft massage cushion gently stimulate your milk flow.” – Philips AVENT
This pump in partnership with a hands free nursing bra is amazing! This easy to use double electric pump definitely allows you to sit back and relax! The soft massage cushions contribute greatly to a comfortable pumping session. They have a soft velvety texture that gives a warm feel to the skin for comfortable, gentle stimulation of your milk flow. During pumping, the cushions gently mimic your baby’s suckling for natural let down and clinically proven effectiveness. They are designed to fit most mamas but there is a larger size available should you need it.
Other things that help in successful pumping:
- Have a recording of your baby to watch on your phone, including crying if possible. It will help to stimulate your milk production.
- Have a picture of baby framed and keep it in your pumping bag so it’s easy to sit on the desk or table nearby when pumping.
- Have a treat! I love eating a Making Mama’s Milk and More lactation cookie when I am pumping to to relax and enjoy the taste (and hey, it helps with production!)
- Drink lots of water! Keep a container of water with you everywhere you go and drink it regularly!
- Eat old fashioned oats for breakfast!
Easy to Use Double Electric Pump
Some other features I love about the Philips Avent easy to use double electric pump? It’s BPA free and it has a very discrete black carry all bag to transport it back and forth from work! The pump comes with (2) 4 ounce Philips Avent Natural Bottles but it is fully compatible with other Philips Avent bottles if you need larger bottles. It’s also easy to go from pumping to feeding baby straight from the bottle. Another plus to the Philips Avent Double Electric Comfort Breast Pump is that it is a “closed” pumping system. As long as the diaphragm is dry, you won’t have a problem with moisture getting into the tubing and then molding. the milk doesn’t go through the tubing at all, which I love!!
The pump has three pumping settings. It automatically starts in a gentle stimulation mode but will then allow you to choose from three settings to get the most comfortable pumping session for you. One final thing I love about it? It’s actually a necessity for us busy mamas: it’s dishwasher safe!!! ;) Philips Avent has thought of everything with this pump!
Another thing Philips Avent sent was some of their Natural Bottles. We received one glass Philips Avent Natural Bottle and two of the new Philips Avent Elephant Design Natural Bottles for review. I am a huge fan of glass bottles for baby but I was thrilled with the Philips Avent Elephant Design Natural Bottles, too! They are so cute AND they are BPA free!
If you are in the market for a new pump, this is a great choice! I highly recommend a double electric pump for exclusive pumping or for pumping at work. There’s just no comparison in the time you’ll save. Philips Avent has made sure to make us comfortable with this great design, something that is vital in order for our pumping sessions to be successful. If you are breastfeeding I applaud you! If you are pumping, you deserve an extra pat on the back..it can be rough but it’s totally worth it! Good job, mama!
