♥ NO MORE LIQUID GOLD WASTED! Every drop counts. breast milk catchers are especially helpful early on when every drop is needed! Use these all throughout the day in between pumps , during pumps and breastfeeding sessions to build your milk stash effortlessly! You’ll be amazed how many ounces you can collect in a day ;) Haakaa is a one-piece breast pump that can serve as your milk collector as well as a manual breast pump. You can use your Haakaa at any time. To get the best results I highly recommend using while nursing. By baby latching , it stimulates the breast to produce milk Causing a very intense let down sensations on the opposite breast. So by placing the Haakaa on the breast baby is not nursing from , you can collect 2-4 oz of milk every time when baby is nursing. Pumping in the first 4 weeks is a big no-no‼️⚠️if you choose to pump, yield with caution. If you really want to start saving up some milk before your baby is 4 weeks old , invest in one of these 😊

From Ludy (@lcdann):⁣ ⁣ I'm weaning from the pump -- reaching my 6 month goal soon and have so many mixed feelings. But I'm ready. As a just enougher with no freezer stash it has been a long arduous road. As I give the last of mommy's milk to my pumpling, I write him little messages with a dry-erase marker (in English and my native Portuguese). It has helped me separate myself slowly 💖)⁣ .⁣ Thanks so much for letting me share Ludy!⁣ .⁣ #exclusivepumping #exclusivelypumping #exclusivepumpers #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmama #breastmilk #pumpingmom #pumpingmoms #normalizebreastfeeding #pumprules #pumpingmilk#newbaby #newmom #breastpump #ebf #milksupply #babytipsandtricks #exclusivepumpingmama #breastfeedingmom #lactation #breastfeedingjourney #postpartum #pumpingmama #newmommylife #breastfeedingsupport

really, mother is just another word for multitasker. right? like the oh so capable @miraclemumma you all juggle a multitude of things: the feeding, the cleaning, the working, pumping, loving, eating. and it is not easy. not one bit. but yet you still keep those balls in the air day after day, year after year. you are magical so keep on with the multitasking and remember every now and again to take a well deserved break. happy weekend! 💪💕

Starting the day right with a yogurt berry bowl and two tablespoons of the Cradle Mamas yummy lactation superfood! When I first started eating this superfood after giving birth I would eat up to 1/2 a cup of the nutty mix. If it’s been less than 6 weeks after delivery then that is the recommended dose to eat daily. It ensures the #rich #nutrients aid in healing the body fully. With the passage of time, eating two tablespoons in the morning and evening ensures a healthy and steady milk supply. Give it a go, start your mornings with such a delicious energy bowl. The starter bag Is only €7 with FREE SHIPPING within Italy! . . . #lactatingmom #lactationsupport #lactation #lactationgoodies #breastfeedingsupport #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingmomma #italianmama #mama #babymama #healthysupport #berries #galactagogues #milkbooster #milk #mothersmilk #breastmilk #stayathomemom #workingmom #babylife #lifewithababy #pumping #milkpump #pumpingmama #neverenough #goodstuff #liquidgold at Trastevere, Rome

Wahoo 1st post!🙌🏼👏🏻😁🍼 ° 》Lets talk organizing breastmilk freezer stash! • So every few days I organize my stash and pack the milk into gallon ziploc bags. I absolutely love organizing my freezer stash! It makes me so happy to know I'm able to provide for baby & have a milk stash! Anyone can build a freezer stash. My tip to you is pump, pump, pump! It's all about supply and demand. •I'm all about organization!! •I label each gallon bag with the dates and total ounces that are going in the bag. I also label what number the gallon bag is. Ex: The bag I packed today is my 9th gallon bag. •Looks like I'm buying a chest freezer really soon! Yay🙌🏼😁 •47oz-50oz fit in one gallon bag! °°More freezer milk tips to come! ♡Current freezer stash is 408.50oz of breastmilk! - I've been pumping for 10 weeks! #YouGotThisMama #PumpMamaPump #DontGiveUp #MedelaBags #BreastMilk #SupplyAndDemand #FreezerStash #FreezerChest #PumpItUp #Organization #LegendairyMilk #Spectra #Medela #PumpingMama #DailyPumping #ExclusivelyPumping #Mama #Breastpumping

#1 issue for mamas ‼️ If you pump , get your flanges sized properly‼️ If you are frequently pumping, it is absolutely important to make sure that breast pump fits you correctly and you have the right breast flange size to start with. If you are experiencing constant nipple pain or having low milk supply issues while pumping, it might be possible that you are using the wrong breast flange size. The first thing you do once you get a pump is to check and make sure if the flange fits you. Don’t feel compelled to use the breast shield that comes with your pump to save a few dollars. It’s not worth it. ⚠️ I am not a IBCLC, I offer help from my experiences. If you want a 2nd opinion, I’d be happy to help

"I am incredibly grateful to have found this bag on Instagram! I exclusively pump so this bag is a game-changer! Leaving the house is so much easier now that I can fit all of my pump essentials in this stylish bag. Plus the all black is perfect to use when I go back to work. I read the reviews so I knew that the bag would fit my Medela Pump and that it would be BIG. It is big and that’s how it can fit all of my pump essentials and more. I also travel a lot and go on road trips so that added to the appeal of the all-in-one and easily accessible side pockets. I love it!"- Analise S. We ❤️ your feedback!

My LaVie Warming Massagers are doing their job!!! The replacement one is working perfectly. I can’t thank LaVie enough for their customer service and sending me the replacement. Now they both work correctly! I have them on vibration and low heat mode. Once I have a nice let down, I switch off the vibration and keep it just to low heat. Then when I want another let down I turn the vibration back on! It’s so easy!! 💕 If your thinking about purchasing, you definitely should, they have helped my pumping journey a lot!! And even if your just pumping once or twice a day they can STILL help with CLOGS, LET DOWN and GETTING MORE MILK!!!

I definitely don’t have what you have 😌 I decided to have my prolactin levels checked by my doctors (personal reasons) . A prolactin level test is simple and measures the amount of the hormone in the blood. It can check to see if levels are too low or too high. Prolactin levels of between 30 ng/mL and 200 ng/mL are considered moderately high. RESULTS ARE IN‼️ I do not suffer from hyper-Lactation syndrome. I am “normal” and just have an oversupply 😊 Definitely thankful & blessed . Its crazy to think that this is just all me 😳😂 Going off the chart another mother gave me of normal ranges of lactating women on picture 2, I’m really within normal range . They Might even be slightly higher after my period is gone, but they are not extremely high or alarming . I thought they were going to be higher honestly so its looking like I just respond well to pumping than most women do .

👉The struggle to exclusively breastfeed my baby is REAL!👈 . . . Not only have I been trying to heal from major abdominal surgery over the past 4 weeks, our baby boy had to have tounge and lip tie surgery done and has been healing from that as well as not latching properly but I have been struggling to produce enough milk to feed my baby. . I have not only been pumping approx every 3hrs but I have been consuming lactation cookies, lactation tea mixed with Gatorade, taking 4 horse pills of supplements 2x a day as well as a prescription 3x a day to increase my supply and I am still only making half of what he eats in a 24 hour period. . Formula is there for a reason! and just because I am feeding my baby formula a few times a day to supplement what I cannot physically give him does not make me a bad mother, lazy or a failure. I can sit here and honestly say I have been and will continue to do everything I can to be able to exclusively breastfeed my baby again. #breastfeeding #breastfeedingstruggles #milkproductionstruggles #youdoyou #instagram #instadaily #4weekspostpartum #breastfeedingmama #pumpingmama

Another sunny day, another picnic ☀️ It’s finally here. My hen weekend 👰🏽I’m a bundle of emotions. Excited, anxious, nervous, sad. I know he’ll be absolutely fine but that doesn’t help the emotional part of my brain turn off. He’s going to have a lovely bonding weekend with his Daddy and I’m going to get some sleep 😂 I’ve been pumping non stop it feels like so that he can continue to have my milk and I’ll also pump and dump while I’m away. Probably cry pouring it away 😭 no clue where I’m going so it’ll be quiet on here until I’m back! See you on the other side 👋🏼 at The Quayside, St Ives

This happened to me, and I’m pretty sure it happened to most mamas I know at some point (happens more than once if you’re naturally clumsy like me!). It’s a low point for sure.⁣ ⁣ Roy thought I’d lost it! No one can truly relate unless they’ve been there with milk all over their leg - sore boobs sucked dry attached to pump (mamas you know the scene!).⁣ ⁣ I had just finished pumping at 3am (the only time F was asleep for more than a few hours when he was a newborn!) and I knocked the bottle over ⁣ 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 Having been feeding a hungry newborn all day, it was a long struggle to get anything at all. But to then to see what little I had managed to get moisturising my leg, and seeping into my sheets was soul destroying. ⁣ ⁣ Moral of the story - when you’re that exhausted and your baby is sleeping - just sleep!! ⁣ ⁣ And can I just say MASSIVE respect to pumping mamas! I found it sooo hard - and the dedication you have to feeding your bub is amazing!! ⁣ ⁣ So 🙌🏻 pumping mamas (and all mamas really!).⁣ ⁣ #pumpingmama #breastfeedingmama #breastfeeding #fedisbest #breastpump #breastpumping #sorenips #hungrybaby #tiredmama #sleepwhenbabysleeps #mumlife #momlife #honestmum #honestmom #infantcare #holisticparenting #supportiveparenting #gentlemama #gentlesleepcoach

During a pumping session, there is a wide range in the number of letdowns each woman will experience. However, according to a study conducted in 2008, most of our milk yield occurs within the FIRST TWO LETDOWNS. Here is what the researchers suggest to maximize your letdowns: ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 1️⃣ As soon as your first letdown occurs, you can take full advantage of the release of milk by switching from stimulation mode to expression mode on your breast pump. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ 2️⃣ You will then want to adjust the suction to your maximum COMFORTABLE level —this will differ for each woman. Under these 2 conditions, the researchers found that for the women in their study, 76% of the milk that was expressed was removed during the first two letdowns. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ 3️⃣ Hit the letdown button again whenever milk flow slows to trigger another letdown and repeat the whole process. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Video credit: @mommaalia #breastfeedingmom #breastisbest #breastfeeding #breastfedbabies #breastfed #breastfedbaby #breastfedtoddler #breastfeedingmama #legendairymilk #legendairymilkSA #breastisnormal #pumpingmom #pumpingmilk #pumpingmama #breastpump #breastpumping #breastpumpingmommy #lactation #lactating #lactatingmom #jasonmomoa #pumpunk

The day in the life of a mother. You wake up first. You make sure everyone has breakfast while you run out the house with nothing. You make sure you have everything ready for your kiddos to be successful but you forget needed items for work. You work hard all day. You get home and cook dinner and hopefully get a warm bite to eat before cleaning up dinner and getting the kiddos ready to take a bath and go to bed. You make sure the house is tidy (not clean). You are the last one to go to bed. Mothers are so strong. Mothers survive without recognition. Mothers put everyone else first. I started putting myself first 3 years ago when I wasn't a mother yet, BUT I swear up and down that the reason Landon made me a mom was because my soul focus was my health. . . . . #threemonthspostpartum #threemonthsold #thirteenweeksold #postpartumbody #postpartumlife #mombod #breastfeedingmom #toddlermomlife #newbornboy #workingmomlife #twoundertwo #momoftwoboys #momoftwo #debtfreejourney #outnumbered #outnumberedbyboys #almostthirty #targetmom #workingmoms #pumpingmama #womenwhowork #boymomlife #boymomma #babyboy💙 #toddlerlife #toddlermom #debtsnowball #financialfreedom #marriageworks #coupleselfie at Tucson, Arizona

Posted @withrepost@wholemamasclub "For me, the end of pregnancy signaled a turning point in a long road of nausea, pain, swelling, and general discomfort. I embraced the remaining extra pounds and assumed that when I was ready to jump back into the gym and Whole30-inspired eating, my pre-pregnancy body would come right back.⠀ ⠀ I remember reading articles about how breastfeeding would make those remaining pounds just “fall off.” Some women do have that experience. For me, breastfeeding my baby did not magically reduce my waistline. The person in the mirror did not look like the person I had known before pregnancy. My body felt unfamiliar, and I was scared I would never feel like myself again.⠀ ⠀ Around 4 months postpartum, I felt overwhelmed with the demands of a newborn and discouraged about my lack of self confidence while balancing breastfeeding and body image. I decided to stop the Google shame spiral and focus on the things I could control: my mindset and my habits. Today I’m going to share some advice that will hopefully help you to reframe your mindset and work toward resetting your healthy habits.” Find the rest of this article from Whole30 Coach @the.glowing.brunette at the link in bio.⠀ ⠀ #postpartum #wholemamas #wholemamamoment #whole30mama #momstrong #postbaby #postpregnancy #likeamother #motherhoodunfiltered #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingmoms #breastfeedingsupport #fedisbest #normalizebreastfeeding #breastfeedingsupport #breastfeedingwhole30 #nursingwhole30 #modernmotherhood #myhonestmotherhood #rawmotherhood #breastpump #pumpingmamahttps://www.wholemamasclub.com/breastfeeding-body-image/⠀ ⠀ at Madison, Wisconsin

The Spectra S1 is my number 1 pick for best breast pump for exclusive pumping and here’s why. * The Spectra S1 is a single/double rechargeable hospital grade breast pump. The ability to take this pump off of the wall socket makes it extremely versatile. * It’s gentle, but still strong and efficient. Moms who use this breast pump are always happy to announce how much it has saved their breast and nipple tissue. This characteristic makes it wonderful for EP mamas who are pumping numerous times per day. * It’s closed system means that no cleaning of the tubing needs to happen and breast milk will not encounter any bacteria between expressed milk and pump tubing. P.S. I should also mention that the Spectra S2 is also a fantastic breast pump for exclusive pumping. It is however, not rechargeable like the S1, but it is pink and costa a little bit less as well!

I used to question how useful having a morning routine was before having a baby. But seriously, with sleeping patterns going totally berserk after birth I’ve realized that having a healthy morning routine is actually the most effective way of getting through your day...or at least the first 4 hours of it! Here are some tips that are bound to make you feel rejuvenated and stronger in the morning: 👸🏻 Most days I wake up with the baby but on any odd day when Z has slept longer than usual, I manage to wake up early and get a head start to the day - try to wake early if you can! 💦 First thing to do is drinks glass of normal temperature water 🍋 Can’t emphasize the importance of lemons enough - squeeze some fresh lemon in your water and get an instant detox boost! 💆🏻‍♀️ Those extra minutes you have to yourself in the morning, start by journaling your thoughts for ‘today’ or perhaps make a quick to-do list. I’ve started chronicling my feelings in one of those One Line A Day journals and found it a therapeutic beginning to every morning 💆🏻‍♀️ Meditation seems to be the buzzword of 2018 and 2019. I haven’t bought into the fad myself just yet but I have heard from friends and family that meditation is very effective in calming the body and reconnecting with yourself. you can start with just 5 minutes so give that a go 🏃🏽‍♀️ Exercise exercise exercise! Once you are past your first 6 weeks after delivery and the doctor has given you a go ahead with the gym, start with some light exercises. It’ll be a difficult start and on most days you’ll feel too tired. But try to motivate yourself and start with shorter fewer sets so you’re able to get your stamina back. I incorporate exercising usually to a later part of my morning but regardless of timing, just note that it’s the best way to run your day. . . . #lemonwater #morningroutine #exercise #stayfit #stayhealthy #healthy #eating #staystrong #stayawake #momlife #mompreneur #stayathomemom #normalizebreastfeeding #mompreneurlife #pump #pumpingmama #lactation #lactationdiet #lactationcommunity #travel #setfree #women #dietplan #lifeplan #takeaction #lifeguide #guru #wellness #mothershealth #wellnessmama
