If you are going to succeed in breastfeeding a good pump can be your best ally. From getting your milk supply started to helping to maintain your milk supply the right breast pump is essential. When I had Kaia I had no idea what I was doing. It has taken me some time to come to terms with that fact but be it as it may, it’s true. I read every book about breast feeding I could get my hands on I even took a coarse provide by the hospital about breastfeeding but still when my beautiful baby girl was born the classes and the books meant very little. My milk supply refused to come in. I had a very hungry baby girl and I felt so helpless and unable to console her. I had bought a simple manual pump that did little to no good. Okay I will say it, it truly did no good. Not only did it not bring in my milk it was painful to use and caused bruising. It took three days for the lactation consultant to come in. When she did she brought with her the greatest breast pump machine I have ever used a Medela Lactina. The breast pump was incredible and my milk came in after using it. After that great experience with Medela I knew I wanted my own Medela for home. I recently got the chance to review the Medela Swing pump and it has helped me to not only keep up my supply but to also start a collection for donating! With the introduction of solids Mikey’s not drinking as much milk but I am keeping my supply ready and available for growth spurts and for donating. I also like keeping some extra in the freezer so that should I want to we can go out for the evening and the babysitter will be able to still comfort Mikey with some milk. Collecting the milk can be a challenge that is why I love that the Medela Swing is a great lightweight portable pump that you can use while walking around, chasing a three year old around, carrying a baby etc. I actually will breastfeed Mikey on one side and pump on the other I found that it generally helps with milk production. I have talked to several Mom’s about their breastfeeding experience’s and one thing everyone seems to have in common is that if you are going to make it breastfeeding it is so important to have a good pump you can rely on. My Medela is definitely that pump for me.
