As of last week, I reached a breastfeeding milestone with my 8 month old. We had so many hurdles in the beginning of our breastfeeding journey that saw me nursing around the clock, pumping after each session and supplementing breast milk via tube and syringe at the breast. In the beginning, I have to say that I thought out breastfeeding journey wouldn’t survive. I can now proudly say that Everly is the first child I have breastfeed for the amount of time that I have, and our breastfeeding relationship is stronger than ever.
That being said, my dear, sweet Everly is quite preferential. She hates the bottle. Wants absolutely nothing to do with it! I am not kidding. I went to a wedding at the beginning of October and left Everly with my Mom for the 8 hours I was gone. Everly refused the bottle and protested the entire time I was gone. This being said, I don’t get out often. It is hard to break the ball and chain.
While I may not get out often, I make a point to sneak out every 8 weeks to get my hair done. My little one is not a fan of the bottle, so I enjoy some quiet nursing snuggles with her before I pump a bottle using my Philips AVENT Manual Breast Pump before I head out the door.
Did you know that your breast milk flows easily when you are comfortable?
This is why I love the Philips AVENT Manual Breast Pump. It allows Moms to sit comfortably without the need of leaning forward while the soft massage cushion with a warm feel gently stimulates milk flow.
This breast pump is compact and lightweight, which makes it easier to store, transport and use.
Any breast milk that my baby doesn’t end up consuming while I am away from home, I store in Philips AVENT Milk Storage Bags. These bags provide safe and secure storage for your precious breast milk. They can be stored in the fridge or freezer and are pre-sterilized for immediate use. The breast milk storage bags feature:
- Secure, leak-proof double zipper closure for safe storage of breast milk
- Pre-sterilized bag with tamper proof seal indicating bag is untouched before first use, for complete hygiene
- Freezer-safe with reinforced seams and dual layer bag
- Wide and sturdy opening of the bag to ensure easy filling and pouring of breast milk
While my baby may refuse to take breast milk from a bottle, I have peace of mind knowing that I am able to pump and store breast milk away using quality products from Philips AVENT whenever the need arises.
