Medela Freestyle Breastpump & Accessories

Brand

Medela is a company founded on the belief that breastmilk is the healthiest choice for babies and mothers, and a commitment to help moms provide their babies with breastmilk, whether their babies arrive premature or full-term. Medela serves 90 countries worldwide and has been serving the American market with breastfeeding products and solutions for 30 years. Medela is a widely-known and well-trusted brand for their variety of breastpumps and accessories that help mothers breastfeed with ease and comfort.

Product

Medela specializes in quality breastpumps that provide busy moms with a dependable pumping solution. We love the Medela Freestyle Breastpump because it is lightweight, compact, and even has a rechargeable battery for mobile and wireless pumping. Whether you will be pumping at work or home, the Freestyle is made for moms who pump daily and is designed with your convenience in mind.

From the 2-Phase Expression Technology, which allows you to express more milk in less time, to the backlit display, durable tote bag and pumping timer, the Freestyle has all of the features you need to make regular pumping comfortable and convenient. Adjustable speed and vacuum settings provide comfortable pumping to moms of any supply level and letdown speed. The Freestyle has a memory button, so once you find a pumping pattern that works well for you, you can return to those same settings next time you pump. The Freestyle includes an insulated cooler and contoured ice pack with extra bottles for milk storage on-the-go. Medela also offers an Easy Expression Hands-Free Bustier to make mobile pumping truly hands-free!

In addition to breastpumps, Medela provides a range of accessories for breastfeeding mothers. Their Pump & Save Milk Storage Bags are compatible to all Medela pumps, so you can easily pump directly into the bag and close it with the convenient no-spill, no-leak zipper top design. The bags are BPA-free and made with a protective oxygen barrier to keep milk fresh in the fridge or freezer. The Calma Feeding Set mimics breastfeeding by only dispensing milk when baby creates a vacuum, so you know your baby is bottle-feeding as naturally as possible, and in a way that is unobtrusive to baby’s breastfeeding skills. Baby can pause and breathe, similar to breastfeeding behavior, so your little one will feel close to mom while feeding from the Calma bottle.

Medela also offers Quick Clean Micro Steam Bags, which make cleaning pump parts and bottles less tedious. You can trust that your parts and bottles will be 99.9% free of germs and bacteria in just 3 minutes, and they are easy to use, since you just add water and place them in the microwave. Medela’s Tender Care Lanolin and Disposable Nursing Pads are an absolute necessity for newly nursing mothers, and will ensure that you stay comfortable and dry between feedings. The Tender Care Lanolin is safe for mom and baby because it is made with all-natural ingredients, and provides soothing relief to sore, chapped nipples.

Without question, Medela is a one-stop source for breastpumps and accessories, and provides you with trusted and convenient products and features.

Tula Baby Carrier

Brand

After founders Ula and Mike traveled around the world and saw a variety of mothers using baby carriers, with babies snuggled up to their moms and contentedly close, they wanted to create a carrier for their own daughter that perfectly fit their needs. Tula Baby Carriers was born, and while they first were just hand-sewn for close friends and family, eventually the demand grew for their ergonomic and beautiful baby carriers.

As a busy and breastfeeding mom, we know that you don’t always have time to sit down and peacefully nurse your baby on-demand while keeping up with an on-the-go lifestyle. This is where Tula’s line of baby carriers comes in handy! We love the many features of these beautiful carriers, and the fact that they make discreet and comfortable nursing a breeze for both baby and mom. For added privacy (or to keep baby from getting distracted by surroundings), the sun canopy makes a nice head support and shade, and it snaps into place, but still has elastic edges for easy access to your little one.

Created for both front and back carrying (although Tula recommends keeping baby carried on your front-side until they reach 1 year), the Tula will truly grow with your child from infancy to toddlerhood, all the while keeping them close to the breast and close to you. The carrier is easy to keep clean, since it is machine washable, and features dual-adjustment buckles, which are high-quality and made to last.

Did you know that babies are obligatory nose breathers? This means that they will breathe through their noses whenever possible and find it difficult to breathe through their mouths. As for breastfeeding babies, when they latch on to nurse, they must breathe through their noses while drinking, because their moth is otherwise occupied. Since they are breathing through their nose so often it is important for them to be breathing in air that is full of moisture. This makes Crane humidifiers great for any room in your house where your baby is frequently nursing.

 Nurse Purse Breast Pump Bag

Brand

Several years ago, there was a need for fashionable, fun breast pump bags that went beyond the boring, basic black breast pump bags. The founder of Nurse Purse, Adrienne Frohlich, was also frustrated that standard breast pump bags were simply too small to be very functional – they served the purpose of containing the pump, but not much else. And then, Nurse Purse was born! Said Adrienne, 

“I wanted something that was a functional, stylish alternative that would streamline my commute to work and around town. It was a revelation to finally carry just one bag every day.”

Product

Let’s face it: being a working mom is hard, let alone being a working breastfeeding mom. The Nurse Purse breast pump bag makes life easier – it allows you to carry all your gear for the work day, including your breast pump, in a cute, trendy bag, that doesn’t scream, “There’s a breast pump in here!” 

Finally, there’s a fashion-forward way to provide the very best to your baby.  These bags are made to accommodate Medela, Ameda, Phillips, and Evenflo pumps – you simply remove the pump mechanism from the bag your pump came with, and fasten it inside the Nurse Purse’s interior velcro-secured compartment. 

Each Nurse Purse is made from an easy-to-clean, stain and water-resistant nontoxic polyurethane laminate which is free of PVC, BPA, phthalates, and lead. Our favorite part is that it’s just so roomy! The Nurse Purse can truly serve as your breast pump bag and handbag, making one less thing you have to carry into work with you.  

Features You Will LOVE

  • Accommodates most major breast pump brands
  • Includes a special sleeve to insert a photo of your baby, to help encourage letdown during pumping

Necklace & Bracelets from Chewbeads

Each piece of Chewbeads jewelry is made from 100% silicone, and free of toxic chemicals, so it’s a teether that you can feel good about, and feel great in. Many celebrity mamas adore Chewbeads, and it’s easy to see why.
