Pump, Store, Feed, Care Solution
Last Updated on
Breastfeeding is a 24/7 job, which can feel like a hard expectation to live up to. Mums want the best for their baby, but the practical implications of breastfeeding can be tough to maintain. Whether you’re going back to work, going out for the day with the family or having a couple of hours to yourself, there are ways you can take the worry out of breastfeeding.
To help busy mums, Lansinoh has come up with the concept of Pump, Store, Feed and Care which allows mums the freedom to feed their nutritious breast milk to their babies when they’re not around.
Expressing is ideal if you’re away from your baby for any period of time. For your baby to get the benefits of breast milk all day, mum needs to express her breast milk and store it for feeding. To do this you’re going to need a pump.
There are three pumps available; manual, single electric or double electric – but which one to buy?
The is a hand pump which is affordable, quiet, small and light, making it a perfect travelling companion. Here at Lansinoh we have designed our manual pump to be used whilst travelling giving you the opportunity to discreetly and quietly express milk when you’re out and about.
The breast pump is quicker at expressing breast milk than a manual breast pump and it eliminates the possibility of hand fatigue. It’s designed to mimic your baby’s natural feeding pattern for an efficient pumping experience. The compact single electric breast pump also enables you to tailor your pumping style so you can pick the one that is most comfortable to help to increase your milk production.
The double electric breast pump is the quickest and most effective breast pump. With all the benefits of using a single electric pump, a allows you to express both breasts at once, making your overall pumping time quicker This pump can also be used as a single electric breast pump if desired and offers three of the most effective pumping styles to choose from, that can be tailored for your comfort.
At Lansinoh all our breast pumps come with our new wide neck bottle which is compatible between pumps, lids and teats –allowing you total flexibility to pump and store your breast milk to feed your baby!
Our wide neck bottle gives mums the opportunity to pump their breast milk and store it in the bottle using the lid that is included and place in the fridge for feeding later. Top Tip! Place your milk in the coldest part of the fridge, not in the door, to stop it from spoiling.
Another option is to use Lansinoh’s Milk Storage Bags, these can be placed at the back of the fridge or placed in the freezer. To avoid freezer burn, remove as much air as possible before freezing. Take the bag between your fingers and press the air above the liquid towards the zipper. Milk storage bags can be placed upright or flat in the freezer and, if placed in the coldest part of the freezer, can be frozen up to 6 months. Top Tip! To avoid the milk storage bags sticking together place kitchen towel in-between.
Lansinoh pumps all come with the new NaturalWave teat which can be attached to the wide neck bottle. The bottle and teat enable established breast feeding patterns allowing your baby to go from breast to bottle and back again. This means that once you’re back at work, for example, your child can be bottle fed with your precious breast milk, then when you’re back at home you can have the pleasure of breastfeeding your little one.
Finally don’t forget, you need to look after mum too! During breastfeeding and pumping, your breasts will need a bit of care. At Lansinoh we have plenty of products to help you care for your breasts.
Our most famous product is our Lansinoh HPA Lanolin which only one ingredient. It’s 100% natural without preservatives or additives and it’s naturally hypoallergenic. Our Nipple Cream has been specially developed to help soothe and protect sore, cracked nipples in breastfeeding mothers. Unlike many nipple creams, Lansinoh HPA® Lanolin does not need to be removed before breastfeeding. Top Tip! Try Lansinoh’s HPA Lanolin on other areas, it’s a great lip balm and can also be used to help nappy rash.
Lansinoh Therapearl 3-in-1 Breast Therapy is the ideal product to use with your breast pump. Therapearl can be used hot or cold and has also been specially designed to fit around your breast pump to encourage let down and promote faster milk flow. Top Tip! There are two available in a pack so you can place one in the freezer and keep the other one out to place in the microwave. This product also won silver in this years “Loved by Parents Awards” for best innovative maternity product.
And finally for when you’re not pumping or breastfeeding, we recommend Lansinoh disposable nursing pads. Lansinoh Disposable Nursing Pads have an ultra-thin but super-absorbent core and are contoured for a natural fit that won’t show under clothing. The soft, stay-dry lining draws milk away from the skin and into the core of the pad where it is absorbed by a special layer to prevent leakage. The pads also have two non-slip adhesive tapes so that the pad stays in place, this is the only breast pad that keeps its shape when wet. The Lansinoh nursing pads are hygienically wrapped for cleanliness and convenience – perfect to slip into your bag when out and about.
Lansinoh’s new pump, store, feed and care concept helps breastfeeding mothers with day to day life, helping them to breastfeed for longer and more comfortably. This gives Mum and Dad a bit more freedom whilst still allowing your child to get all the nutrients needed from Mum’s breast milk.
