I am currently breastfeeding my third baby girl. Time and time again I will tell people flat out…breastfeeding is hard! From those first few days waiting for milk to come in to cracked and/or sore nipples to pure exhaustion as it is a constant learning curve till you both get into a groove that works well for you. After you get past that first month of breastfeeding I find it is gets so much easier. That is until you are finally ready to go out into the world without your precious baby. If you are breastfeeding you will need a pump so you can leave some liquid gold behind for the baby. The Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump with Suction Base and Silicone Flower Stopper Set might be the cutest little breast pump around!
I have done all sorts of pumping. I casually pumped for Big Sis as I was a stay at home mom when she was a baby and she was high needs so I did not get out much. I pumped daily at work for Lil Sis as she was at daycare. With Baby Sis she was a preemie so I used a hospital pump the first 2 months as we had to work on her latch, monitor her intake and how much she grew. Now that she is growing and after some therapy she is 100% back on the boob….but…I also want to be able to get out and about without a baby now and then. That is where the Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump comes in handy.
Forget huge, loud and complicated electric pumps which can cost hundreds of dollars and need to be put together and then taken apart to be cleaned thoroughly every single time you use it. This 100% food grade silicone, eco-friendly and simple to use breast pump will change the way you think about pumping – truly.
It works by you suctioning the cup to your breast and then letting the pump do the work for you as it draws your milk using suction. I will admit it was a little tricky to use the first few times. You have to find the perfect amount of suction that works for you. I find a slight tug is all I need…it should not be painful! I also have big nipples and big boobs and this works for me. I use it the most first thing in the morning. Baby Sis is on one boob and I attach this pump to the other boob….just don’t let baby kick it off!
It is also easy to clean as it can be sterilized with any steam sterilizing system or boiling water, is dishwasher safe, BPA, PVC and Phthalate free. The silicone flower stopper sits tight in the neck of your Haakaa breast pump and will stop any spills or accidents and is also made from 100% silicone as well. The cute flower comes in 4 different colors and truly solidifies this pump as adorable.
For all those stay at home moms that pump few times a week this handy little pump is a MUST. Small and compact fitting perfectly into any handbag or baby bag. It comes in both 4 oz. at 5 oz. sizes and is available online at Target and Haakaa USA. This is the perfect little pump for casual pumpers and would make an excellent baby shower gift! One where Mama will thank you months later when she gets to use it for herself.
