This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #32: Courtney!
Since I decided to go back to work a little earlier after giving birth to Kaila, nursing was not always possible. So for me the next best thing was to express milk using a hand pump. After all, there are no electrical outlets on the plane. So when I had the opportunity to review the Simplisse Breastfeeding product line, I was so excited!
Welcome to Simplisse â€“ a full line of breast pumps and breast care products designed to do one thing â€“ let moms like you express your breastmilk comfortably so you can provide that milk to your baby for the longest period of time possible.
I received a box full of Simplisse products which included the Manual Breastfeeding Companion, Disposable Breast Pads, Lanolin-Free Nipple Cream, Breastmilk Storage Bags, and Essential Lactation Supplements. Here’s what I thought about these items:
Manual Breastfeeding Companion: What makes this manual pump different than the competitors is the way it expresses breastmilk. There’s no unnatural tugging or pulling but instead the pumping motion mimicks the way a baby would nurse. This helps to ensure a proper and continuous milk flow. I really like that it’s comfortable to use because let’s face it, I probably wouldn’t use it for very long if it kept hurting me.
Lanolin-Free Nipple Cream: Luckily I’ve never had to use this item but I like that it’s all-natural, hypoallergenic, and paraben-free. After all, it has to be especially safe since it will get into baby’s mouth.
Breastmilk Storage Bag: In the past, I’ve purchased cheaper bargain brands and let me tell you, they’re a pain to use. I’ve always had problems with the top of the bag spliting from the seal. With Simplisse’s thick and durable bags, you can stand them upright and pour the milk in without fear that it will fall over and spill all your precious breastmilk. It makes storing/freezing a breeze.
Disposable Breast Pads: What I liked best about these pads is how thin they are. A lot of my nursing outfits seem to be made of really thin material and any extra bulkiness is not a good thing. But just because it’s thin, doesn’t mean it doesn’t absorb well. Since I can’t pump on schedule, I tend to get engorged and I definitely need a breast pad that will do it’s job. This one did!
Essential Lactation Supplements: I really like that this supplement has it all for breastfeeding moms. I don’t know about you but the less pills I have to remember to take the better. These supplements are formulated for optimal nutritional health for mom and breastmilk for baby and replaces the prenatal vitamins you would usually take.
So if you’re looking for a complete line of breastfeeding products, check out Simplisse. They help make breatfeeding a lot easier and more comfortable ensuring that you’ll breastfeed for a very long time.
