Breastfeeding. It’s hard at first, we can admit that. Both you and your newborn are learning a skill you have never had to do before! So if I could say to you that there is something that can make it easier, it should be a must-have item for all new moms who are planning on breastfeeding.
Catch those leaks while you are feeding on one side, these leaks will just be wasted into a breast pad or most likely your shirt. Leaks happen.
Reduce engorgement when you find yourself away from baby for too long, when you wake up in the middle of the night and baby is STILL sleeping (seriously is happens, don’t wake them, enjoy it while it lasts).
Relieve pressure once you return to work, have a night out with your friend or even a thing I heard is real – date night!
AND it all fits into a small bag, no wires, no plugs, nothing to take apart to sanitize, safe for you, baby and the environment. The Haaka Pump is the best thing since sliced bread – sorry to now make you crave carbs, breastfeeding cravings are a real thing! Prevent wasted milk, be able to pump discreetly and easily just about anywhere. Plus the price tag of $36.99 is VERY easy on the eyes and pocket book.
Simply suction to your breast and let the pump do the work for you as it draws your milk using suction. 100% eco-friendly and safe for mum, baby and our environment. Dishwasher safe - BPA, PVC and Phthalate free. This pump is so simple and easy to use -
Sterilize your pump.
Place top of pump over your nipple – make sure your nipple is in the neck of the pump and comfortable.
Apply suction – you may need to adjust a couple of times. Once the pump is secure and comfortable you can squeeze the base of the pump (not interfering with the top/suction) to create some movement.
A warm cloth or compress on top of your breast is also a great tip and gently massage the top of your breast.
Once milk begins to flow simply leave the pump alone to do its thing.
Once the pump becomes full empty into a storage bottle and reposition.
Also attach in the same way while your child is feeding on your other breast and collect all let down and milk which would otherwise be lost into a breast pad.
As every women’s breastfeeding journey is different, as will be their results which can vary as each woman and her supply are unique. Always remember that breastfeeding is a simple supply and demand, so what you take out your breast will continue to produce. Having an overactive letdown can make feeding harder for babies and possibly give them gas or colic. Speaking with a doctor, obstetrician, midwife, doula, and health nurse or lactation councillor about your pumping options and what your pumping goals are is highly recommended.
