Win Breastfeeding Products From Lansinoh Family

It’s sometimes easy to think that breastfeeding is something that we mums can just pick up automatically but the truth is that it can take time, effort and persistence to learn how to feed your baby.

Mother Distracted Breast Feeding Giveaway - sleeping  baby

There is little doubt that breast is best if you are able to feed this way but not all of us can and I think it is important that mums support each other no matter whether they choose breast or bottle.

There are things you can do to make breastfeeding easier because, let’s be frank, it can often leave you sore and uncomfortable.

Lansinoh offers a range of products to support breastfeeding mums including, bottles, breast pumps, nursing pads and their multi- award winning HPA Lanolin – 100% pure lanolin to help sooth sore and cracked nipples.  You can now buy it in a 10ml travel size too (and it makes a great lipbalm!).

Lansinoh Family wants to encourage mums to feed with confidence and you can find loads of helpful advice on their website, including a new mums’ club- The Happy Tummy Club and, at the moment, a chance to win a Family Friendly Mini Break in their Feed With Confidence Awards 2017.  To enter you must nominate places that you think support breastfeeding mums.

Too often the Media is full of tales of places that do not offer support or, even worse, are discriminatory against breastfeeding mums.  I think this is a great initiative to highlight the support that is out there.

You can enter the competition via this link. Make sure you submit your nomination by 31 December 2017.

There are also loads of books which new parents might find helpful too.  These are some of my recommendations.

To make life a little more comfortable for nursing mums I have 3 Lansinoh products to give away worth a total of £50.

Lansinoh manual breast pump

Mother Distracted Giveaway Lansinoh Breast Feeding Products

BPA and BPS Free, this manual breast pump has adjustable 2 phase technology – the ‘let down’ phase enables rapid pumping rhythm to stimulate and initiate milk flow and the  ‘expression phase’ enables slower, pumping rhythm to maximise milk flow

It has a ComfortFit™ breast cushion – for better fit and suction for more efficient pumping, an ergonomic easy-express™ handle – to reduce hand fatigue and comes with a Lansinoh® feeding bottle which fits with the entire Lansinoh pump and bottle range.

Lansinoh nursing pads (pack of 24)

Mother Distracted Breast Feeding Giveaway Lansinoh Nursing Pads

These Disposable Nursing Pads with Blue Lock™ core are comfortable, ultra-absorbent, and designed to fit all breast sizes. They ensure that breastfeeding mums stay dry, night or day, and with their new ultra absorbency they can hold up to 20x their own weight.

dont beat yourself up if its not happening straight away! with my little girl i had to give up breastfeeding after a few days as she just couldnt latch on and was starving. i really beat my self up about it and got really down. after having my 2nd child i realised that some babies just need more work with it and laughed at my previous self for getting so down about the first time around!

I found lanolin-based ointments to be fantastic for cracked nipples. It helped them to heal and meant that I could carry on feeding at the same time.

I breast fed all of mine But I would say always do what feels right for you and never mind what is in trend or what others think. Stay clam and relaxed and don’t get to anxious if baby doesn’t take to it right away. No one tells you about sore nipples so be ready for that there lots of creams or Vaseline is good too. Don’t for get what you eat baby eats I was very alarmed when my first baby got the runs after i had eaten quite a bit of fruit . Make sure you are comfortable… Read more »

Preparation :- Seek information and support. There are Breastfeeding Support Groups :- Seek a local one and ask if you can visit, be honest if forward planning i.e. Not yet pregnant, not yet delivered. It is good to be supported by those who have a positive attitude, relevant information, personal experience of Breastfeeding. Try to be patient, ensure you are prepared for Breastfeeding ( comfortable, you may need to go to toilet prior to feed, have a meal / snack / drink of water, etc). Then prepare baby for feed e.g. May require a nappy change. Try to be kind… Read more »

I am about to breastfeed for the first time, but the best advice I have been given is to persevere, but don’t feel guilty if you need to mix feed at times. It can be very stressful and that’s no good for anyone.

Try to relax and remember its a natural thing, and not to let too many people give you their advice and experience, each person and baby is uniquely different….

Amie

Don’t give up but equally be kind to yourself!
Use hot/cold compression packs to ease pain and get milk flowing and make sure to get a good latch!

Try to relax and take your time with it. Not all babies latch on correctly to start with, it can take lots of practice and patience. As long as your baby is doing the correct amount of wet and dirty nappies they are getting enough milk. This is something I didn’t get to grips with until my 4th baby but now we’re doing well with it.
I’d also recommend waiting til at least 6 weeks if you want to combine with bottle feeds so that your milk supply is established as I messed this bit up with my third baby.
