New! Breast pumps available

Just a notice about this post – women like to share and this breastfeeding topic may be too much for some.  Refer it along if you find value in it.

I can remember my first attempts at nursing my first baby with great fondness.  It was in the hospital with lots of support and other moms to model after.  Then I got home….

Breastfeeding is a skill for moms while baby seems to have great instincts about how to nurse.  There is so much advice out there I can’t even start to get into who’s opinion rules.  Your own opinion counts most really!

I found fantastic support with La Leche League with my first daughter who forgot how to nurse after leaving the hospital and again for my second daughter who didn’t keep up with demand when my milk came in with her.  Both consultations were over the phone and helped tremendously – as did my girlfriends who backed her up!

Using a breast pump to extract milk helped me to ease the too full feeling in my breasts as many other women do.  I provided milk extracted by a pump for mixing with infant cereal and for my husband to give to my daughter when I went out in the evening (although that didn’t really work, she gave up evening nursing first).  It was the best help when engorged and even the comfort of cold cabbage leaves started to fail me.

Changing Ways will be introducing a breastpump from Ameda.  This manufacturer offers many resources for women who breastfeed.  This company does encourage and advocate for those who are breastfeeding as I investigated their reviews and website.  This was an important qualifier for me as I really support those who will try to nurse, just like those who try to cloth diaper.

A mom needs support during the learning stages of caring for a newborn so here’s hoping Changing Ways can lend an extra hand here!  The breast pump sold through Ameda has support from World Health Organization which is unique in this market.  Contact Andria to find out more!
