Gift idea for the breastfeeding Mom




Having breastfed 5 children of my own, while encouraging others to try before giving up. I am pro breastfeeding. I do understand that some can not do it for obvious reasons such as taking medication, can't product milk, etc. I also understand those who could breastfeed before and not with their second or vice versa.


I would have loved this electric pump back in the day. I had a hand pump which was hard to use. This one is electric, can do two breasts at a time. Talk about time saving. It also has a massage function. Oh My Goodness. Where was this when I needed it.

There is a big difference from a child suckling and a machine pumping milk, but the massage function makes it more bearable. This is great for new moms, seasoned moms, and those who continue to keep their milk production up to donate their milk to babies in need.

Check out more information below.

A little more detail about pump.

Two-mode Technology After turning on, massage mode will keep 120s, then switch to suction mode. The massage mode acts as a warming-up phase to get breasts ready to initiate milk flow by continuously stimulating the breasts in a rapid pumping rhythm. After that, in suction phase, the pumping rhythm becomes slower to maximize the milk flow.9 Adjustable Suction Levels There are 9 suction levels to adjust, from level 1 to level 9, the suction is rising. Users can choose the most comfortable level and the level mostly fit her baby’s feeding pattern. Moreover, the intelligent breast pump has a memory function which automatically switches to the optimum suction level (current setting) after the massage.Isolated System A hygienic isolated system ensures the milk won’t go backward to tubing or motor and protect the main machine. It also prevents bacteria and mold from breeding and let the baby drink clean and hygienic milk.Measurable Milk Production Moms are not sure about whether the amount of their breast milk is enough for their babies when feeding them. Using Gland breast pumps, you can clearly see how much breast milk you produce with the scale on the bottle. 

Check out my un-boxing below.

Mamaway



Nursing is much easier if you have a nice bra in which to do it with. I really love the make of this bra but wish they sold larger sizes having nursed 5 children and trying to find a nice bra this would be my pick above many I have had in the past. It is just that they don't make one large enough for me. 

This would make a great gift for the women during pregnancy or the nursing years. Love that this stretches with the ever changing sizes you will go through nursing. Easy to unlatch for feeding time and is easy to care for. 

I would suggest for this company if they make larger sizes to also make the shoulder straps thicker as well for those with breasts fully engorged. Again this is a great bra that I would like seen in larger sizes but is great for those who are currently in the sizes they offer. Note to Mamaway make sizes XXXL and XXXXL. I was a 48DDD the last time I nursed.

The Mamaway Nursing Bra can be found on Amazon in sizes up to XXL.





Support your changing breasts with this nonwire bra! It is so comfortable, it feels like you're wearing nothing! Stretches up to 3 cups while providing great structural support, this bra also comes with removable padding and one hand drop down clips for easy nursing.

⦁    Highly elastic, can be extended up to 2-3 cups and can be used from pregnancy to breastfeeding period.
⦁    The chest pad has different sizes for each nursing bra, which molds perfectly to the contours of your breast, is comfortable and does not shift around.
⦁    Featuring a highly durable button, can be conveniently worn and taken off with one hand. 
⦁    Under bust designed using an elastic band so that the weight of your breast can be distributed equally on your chest. It's steady, supportive and not too tight.
⦁    Super soft material, one piece nursing bra, provides seamless support.

Fabric : 80% Nylon, 20% Spandex
Machine washable in Laundry bag/ Do not bleach
* Remove padding before wash, padding hand wash only.

Classic Nursing Cover







Being a mother who breastfed all of her biological children, although they preferred to be uncovered there were times when I felt it was better to be covered so having a good nursing cover is nice to have. Sadly all I had was a blanket and it always fell off or the children pulled it off and threw it.

This cover has a nice neck strap which holds it in place while nursing. It is huge so it even covers us bigger people out there. It has a little pocket to store things in and the corners have a little bit of soft material on the inside for spit up, so it is a wonderful cover.

One of my favorite things about this cover is that it has a nice opening so you can check on the baby or switch sides when you need to. When you are all done you just put it back into the bag and slip it in your bag, purse, or tote bag and you are on your way.

You can find this Nursing Cover on Amazon.

2. Flexible neckline, flexible mother: White Sateen nursing covers have an adjustable boned neckline, which gives your infant airflow and space to breathe while they feed. And let’s you keep an eye on your baby so you can give them exactly what they need

3. Larger coverage with contoured sides: With a curved contoured design, our White Sateen nursing covers are larger than your average breastfeeding cover. With a soft drape that flatters your body, you’ll feel confident, covered, and cute.

4. Burp cloth for those cute little accidents: Each nursing cover has a soft, smooth burp cloth attached so when your baby needs your gentle hand to wipe their mouth, you always have something quickly on hand.

5. Keep everything handy: Your hands are full enough with your baby, that’s why White Sateen nursing covers have handy built-in pockets so you can keep your wipes, nursing pads and toys within arms reach.

6. Classic, stylish, subtle: White Sateen only design elegant and timeless prints that compliment your outfit and allow you to blend in easily. Now you can nurse your little one privately – even when you’re out in public.

7. Stay organised and save time: White Sateen nursing covers come with a handy carry pouch so you can quickly store your nursing cover, or just throw in diapers and wipes when it’s time to go exploring with your baby.

Having another Baby

Years ago before we had the internet all I could find for nursing pads were disposable pads that stuck to the nipples and caused more pain then good. With my third child was born we were able to find a set but they were so expensive we only got one set of 4, which I had to wash and dry every day so I could use them on a regular basis. Skip ahead a few years and you can find them on the internet for sale in lots of places, still not so much in brick and mortar stores but on the internet there are lots to choose from.

I look for comfort first which these have, washable, reusable, etc. These hit all of my wants, actually I was very surprised with just how soft these were even after washing. Personally I am 43 having had 5 live births, a miscarriage, and taking care of other peoples children for years, and we always said we would be the parents who were 45 and pregnant. 

Let's just say we are highly thinking of taking the plunge to have another child. So keep your eyes openend you never know when another little one will pop up here in Marksville.

You can find these Nursing Pads on Amazon
