If you're a nursing mom, you know the damage those little
One newer product from Lansinoh that I would've loved to try in my early nursing days was their Latch Assist, a simple tool that lightly and gently suctions flat nipples causing them to protrude just long enough for baby to latch. Flat nipples were one of our biggest challenges in keeping my daughter latched, and if I'd known of this invention, I'd surely have tried it out! Instead I used a nipple shield and received many admonishments from LC's who said I was ruining my chances to nurse by having her attach to an artificial nipple. I truly wish I'd had the chance to see the Latch Assist in action.
Finally, one of the most important products any nursing mom needs is a great pump. Lansinoh's Manual Breast Pump is the perfect pump for obtaining a small amount of milk to add to baby's rice cereal and when mom needs to be separated from baby for just a short period of time. It's also terrific for traveling when you can't haul your larger pump around. 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 all parts are BPA free.
And lastly what to do with your stored milk? I loved, loved, love Lansinoh's storage bags and used them exclusively during my pumping time. Their bags are incredibly durable, and the zipper-lock closure kept this mom from crying over any spilled milk (true story, it's happened when I tried another brand and I literally did cry). Lansinoh's milk storage bags on the other hand, never let me down.
Find Lansinoh's products at just about any drugstore, baby superstore, and mass retailer near you. Be sure to visit their website as well for a plethora of breastfeeding tips, tricks, and solutions.
