Get great look and support with Medela!

I don't know about you, but when I'm nursing I still want to have the lift as well as a nice shape and look! Medela supplies all of that with their great nursing bra lines and other nursing accessories!

I first started using this nursing bra two weeks after I had my second daughter. The bra I chose was the
Seamless Underwire Nursing Bra. It is delightful! It has the extra detail added to make it look and feel unlike a nursing bra but still has all the benefits of a nursing bra. The snap closures are very "user friendly" especially when all you have is one hand available to unclip because you are holding your precious bundle of joy in the other hand. The straps are very comfortable and unlike other underwire nursing bras, this one has great added support and doesn't dig into my ribs. I have tried to get the inexpensive ones, just to save a little money, but Medela is what I always end up wearing. So, don't waste your time and money trying to find a cheap one that will do the trick, invest with the best and you will not be disappointed.

The gift set...what a WONDERFUL item to give your girlfriends at their baby shower. And let's just be real here, some of us who hadn't ever had kids or been around kids before NEED something like this. I wish I would have been given something like this when I was pregnant with my first. I didn't have a clue what I was doing. LOL! This set has everything a new nursing mommy needs! I love Medela and use their products whenever I am in need of something for nursing. Personally, I believe the breast pads and lanolin cream are the best!! The breast pads are very thin, unlike some of the others and the cream...well, the cream, simply put, WORKS! All you nursing mothers out there know what I'm talkin' about! :)

GET YOUR OWN! Head on over to Medela to check out what they have on their site and do a little shopping of your own! You can find Medela products at many of your big retailers as well. I know I have made quite a few purchases at Babies R Us and Target.

  15. I love. love. love my Medela pump and will be using it again this time around. Checking out their site reminded me that I totally need the maternity belt support (my back is really bad with this one) and I just told my husband I wanted a simple stool. They have one -- perfect.

  17. The only Medela products I own are the pumping accessories (bottles, tubing) and borrowed their backpack pump. It was super nice.

    ReplyDelete
  18. If I were a rich girl, I would definitely purchase the symphony pump. I worked in a hospital when I had my 1st and used their pumping room with that pump and it was soooo nice, fast, quiet, and comfortable. I will probably be ordering a few nursing bras. I agree, the cheap ones are not worth it! Thanks for sharing a quality one.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think the new freestyle pump looks amazing but I would love to have a new nursing cami for baby number 2 on the way!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I actually bought the swing pump since I am a stay at home mom and used it everyday, sometimes twice a day, for almost a year! It worked great!

  56. I just need some more of the bottles! I only got a few and would like to store up some milk in the freezer just in case! Last round I had to have surgery when my baby was just 5 weeks old and didn't have enough milk for the surgery/recovery time when I still had drugs in my system.

  57. I have the Harmony manual pump. It was given to me and worked really well for me since I could control the "intensity" of the pumping. I don't really need a big fancy pump since I only use it occasionally and this is so small it's nice to take on vacation too!

  59. I currently own the Pump in Style. I love it! It works really well for pumping at work. I used it with my first and am planning on using it when I go back to work with my daughter. I like that it starts off quickly so that you get milk faster.

  82. Actually, if I were to win this give-a-way, I would give it to my sister that is expecting her first. I looked at the Medela website and the items that she would be interested in and she is going to breastfeed so she is going to buy a great pump as well as the accessories. She also owns one of the medela bras and she loves it! She thinks it is so comfy.
