It Takes A Village...To Breastfeed!

This post is brought to you by tommee tippee and the tommee mommee program. All opinions are my own! I really love tommee mommee products!

Yes, I am sure you have heard it a million times...

Breastmilk is A-MAZING!

But it isn't always that simple to produce. I was always set on nursing my babies but with each one, I struggled to produce enough milk to help them gain weight. I struggled for years feeling like a failure but thanks to my "village", I was able to breastfeed my daughter (with supplementing for a couple months) for almost two years and I am still nursing my 1 year old son!

So who's my "Village"? 

Well, my #1 person is my husband. He was there supporting me every step of the way with every child, every tear, every "failure". He encourage me to keep going, get help when I needed it and give me the breaks that I needed when I needed them!

Then there is the professionals that helped, guide and encourage me like my lactation consultant who answered my tearful phone call at 10 at night when I was feeling so low. Or my midwifes who came over extra days to weigh my son, contacted other professional for advice and didn't give up on me!

And then there are the great companies out there that make awesome products to help out busy, tired mommas like me! Products like great bottles, great breast pumps and so much more were essential to my success of nursing!

When my son needed to supplement, I turned to my trusty Double Electric Breast Pump from tommee tippee. It is by far my favorite infant product that they offer!

It is so comfortable to use, easy to figure out, and the pump comes with SO MUCH STUFF! Using this pump helped me increase my supply, supplement to help my children's weight gain and get out of the house once in awhile! :) So in other words, it kept me sane during a very stressful time! 

    Included in the Box:

    One double electric pump, four spare anti-backflow valves, two 5 oz. newborn bottles with lids, two 9 oz. full-size bottles with lids, four 2 oz. milk storage pods, two 4 oz. milk storage pods, storage tray, insulated case, six breast pads, carrying bag, rechargeable batteries

    My favorite feature is that it is so convenient! The pump features five adjustable expression settings ensure gentle and efficient expressing, and the pump features a digital clock and timer for convenient use.

    Plus, it has a a carrying bag for holding everything safely and also an insulated case if you need to keep milk cold. Also, I really love the storage pods and tray. It makes it so easy to store smaller amounts of milk (like to use for healing ailments and infections!). I have never seen that in a pump kit before!

    In addition, they include FOUR bottles in 5 oz and 9 oz and breast pads! This pump is worth it just for the bottles! I have used them with all three of my children and they are definitely my go-to bottle! 

    They really thought of EVERYTHING with this pump and accessories!

    The pumping itself was comfortable and easy to do. I love that it has five levels and it also counts the time for you! The soft silicone cups flex and stretch to fit comfortably and it is really easy to clean and assemble!

    I definitely recommend this closer to nature Double Electric Breast Pump if you are new pumper and are just starting out! This kit has EVERYTHING you need to get started supplementing and feeding including bottles and storage pods! Plus, it is really easy to use and you can either pump one side or double!
