It's all about liquid gold - empowerment - and an award winning breast pump!
The world’s first silent wearable breast pump. Fits in your bra, and your life. No tubes. No wires. No noise. The Elvie Pump makes it possible to pump on your own terms - ditch the hours spent tethered to a wall or cleaning tubes. With Elvie Pump you can lead the conference call, play with your kids, cook a delicious meal or simply enjoy some peace and quiet... all while you pump. The Elvie Pump is worn inside a standard nursing bra, making it truly hands-free. Nothing to tie you down - or slow you down. From setup to clean up, using Elvie Pump is simple - it has just 5 parts to clean and takes seconds to assemble. No cords, no wardrobe changes, no fuss. Have I already told you that I looooove the Elvie Pump? The pump automatically switches from stimulation into expression mode when it detects let-down and will pause when the bottle is full. Again, one less thing to think about.
Just in case you need some more advantages of breastfeeding to empower you to choose breastfeeding or go on a little longer...
Breast milk provides abundant and easily absorbed nutritional components, antioxidants, enzymes, immune properties, and live antibodies from the mother. Mother’s more mature immune system makes antibodies to the germs to which she and her baby have been exposed. These antibodies enter her milk to help protect her baby from illness. Immunoglobulin A coats the lining of the baby’s immature intestines helping germs and allergens from leaking through. Breast milk also contains substances that naturally soothe infants.
Breastfed babies have stronger immune systems, less intestinal problems (e.g. diarrhea, constipation, gastroenteritis, gastroesophageal reflux,...), fewer colds respiratory illnesses, fewer ear infections,... They also have fewer allergies, eczema, asthma,... and less chance to become obese later in childhood.
Breastfeeding is also healthier for mom physically and emotionally. It promotes faster weight loss after birth, burning about 500 extra calories a day to build and maintain a milk supply. Who doesn't like to burn calories while being seated? It stimulates the uterus to contract and return to normal size. Breastfeeding also reduces the chance to develop a postpartum depression, 'cause while breastfeeding the naturally soothing hormones oxytocin and prolactin are released into the blood which promote stress reduction and positive feelings in the nursing mother. Thus, it increases the physical and emotional bonding between mother and baby. Breastfeeding promotes more skin-to-skin contact, more holding and stroking. Many feel that affectionate bonding during the first years of life help reduce social and behavioral problems in both children and adults.
Do I need to tell you that breastfeeding makes traveling easier? Breast milk is always clean and the right temperature.
Breastfeeding also means lower risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus... Mothers who breastfed their child develop less osteoporosis, diabetes, hypertension or cardiovascular diseases.
And last but not least, it does save you some money. Bottle feeding costs approximately between 1000-2000 euros in the first year.
