We have got such a treat for you today!!! If you haven’t heard the word Lansinoh and are a new mom or soon to be new mom, then it’s time to learn! Lansinoh products will become your best friends! I had SO many great products to try and we are giving away so many products that I am very happy to report to you all my experiences with each. Breastmilk is best for your child and there are many ways to give your child breastmilk even if they can not latch for whatever reason. Lansinoh has even created a great blog dedicated to breastfeeding- http://bymomsformoms.blogspot.com/. Be sure to check it out!
Lansinoh Double Electric Breast Pump
I exclusively pumped with my daughter because she was low birth weight and I had to pump to feed her, so we continued with that and it worked for us. I had an electric pump that I could not have lived without. Lansinoh has created a double electric breast pump. I do not see how people live without electric pumps when they breastfeed. I breastfeed my son, but there are times when I have to leave him so that I can get out to do certain things. Without the electric breast pump like Lansinoh’s, I would not be able to get a full bottle needed while I was away. Here are details from their site on the double electric pump:
This pump is designed for everyday long term use at home or away. The patented system prevents milk back up in the tubing and pump. Dual independent controls for speed and suction allow for personal settings to simulate your baby’s nursing pattern.
-Retail price under $200- Wow! That’s a really great price for an electric pump!
-Adjust both cycle/speed and vacuum/suction for personal preference
-Very few parts so it’s easy to clean
-Easy to use
-Multiple Power sources
-Designed for daily or occasional use.
-Includes English and Spanish Educational/Instructional DVD featuring:
*Visual instructions on how to assemble and use your Lansinoh Double Electric Breast Pump
*Interviews with two International Board Certified Lactation Consultants with answers to common questions and concerns about pumping
*Breastfeeding and Pumping Resources including how to find an IBCLC in your area
Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump
Lansinoh also sent me their Manual Breast Pump. This was my first experience with a manual pump and I can not say that I am a fan of manual pumps only because my hand really starts to hurt. They are great to have if you rarely leave your child though and don’t need a big milk stash. The pump is nice though because it is small and very portable. I carry it in my purse if I am out and need to be discreet to pump in a bathroom without making a lot of noise. Here is what their site says on the Manual Pump:
The Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump is designed for occasional use at home or away. The unique ComfortSeal Cushion creates a secure seal for more comfortable and efficient pumping. The ergonomic handle and lightweight, compact design allow for easy one-handed use and discreet portability.
-Unique ComfortSeal cushion provides reliable, comfortable suction for a secure fit and faster milk flow
-Ergonomic handle allows for one handed pumping without tiring
-Easy to use and easy to clean, with very few parts
-Compact size allows for discreet portability
-Fast, gentle, convenient – no need for batteries or electricity
-Standard size allows you to pump into most baby bottles
-Designed for daily or occasional use.
-100% Bisphenol-A (BPA) free.
-Made of polypropylene, a safe plastic that is chemical additive-free.
Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags
Ahhh…these are such a lifesaver! I highly recommend their breastmilk storage bags. They never leak and are a necessity! I lay mine flat in the freezer and then stack them once they are frozen upright in tupperware. Here is what their site says about the bags:
Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags are for those times when you can’t be with your baby.
-Specially designed with a convenient pour spout for transferring milk into a bottle, these bags can be stored flat in the freezer, taking up less space and making them easier to thaw.
-Double zipper closure. A MUST!
-Write-On-Tab outside fill area eliminates potential puncture and ink contamination.
-Tissue Pack Dispenser for easy access and storage.
-Tamper evident safety seal.
-Available in boxes of 25 or 50 bags.
-Bags are made of 100% virgin plastic.
-Bags are 100% Bisphenol-A (BPA) Free.
Flat nipples due to breast engorgement or swelling are common for nursing moms in the early days of breastfeeding. Flat nipples may make it difficult for your baby to establish a good latch and therefore may make breastfeeding more difficult. In order to nurse effectively, your baby must be able to grasp the nipple and part of the areola for a good latch. Flat nipples make it harder for your baby to correctly position your nipple in her mouth and this can make breastfeeding painful or unsuccessful.
The LatchAssist is a simple tool to help your nipples temporarily stand out so that it is easier for your baby to establish a good latch, the first step to a successful breastfeeding experience.
-With gentle, self-controlled suction, the LatchAssist will temporarily draw out your nipple so your baby can more easily latch on and breastfeed.
-Can be used quickly and easily with one hand while your baby is in position to breastfeed.
-Small enough to fit in your diaper bag.
Lansinoh Diaper Rash Ointment
I was so happy to have this tonight! My daughter had a rash on her bum from having a bad bm. This is a great product to add to the many great products Lansinoh offers. It is non-greasy and fragrant-free. It goes on white, so you can’t miss any spots! Here is the information from their site:
-A unique blend of special ingredients creates Lansinoh’s Triple Protection Formula to soothe baby’s bottom and help prevent irritation from coming back. It contains: Lansinoh HPA Lanolin, Microfine Zinc Oxide and Dimethicone.
There are SO many great products made by Lansinoh. I wish I could list every single one of them because I have not found a bad one yet! I highly recommend every mom or soon to be mom who is considering breastfeeding to check out the products offered by Lansinoh.
