Giveaway - Medela Breast Pump

Hi there Ladies! Thought I'd post a 'giveaway' today...

I have a (used) Medela Breast Pump in good working order with all kinds of accessories that I'd like to give away!

My twins won't take a bottle and aren't too keen on sippy cups either, so I thought I'd give it to someone who might get better use of it!

Check it out and then make a comment below about how breastfeeding is important to you!
I'll review all posts and then post a winner on February 1, 2010.

here's a picture of everything: bag, pump, accessories

this is a manual pump

it also has attachments for larger boosoms!

How is breastfeeding important to me? Its especially important for the baby! There are essential nutrients in breastmilk that cannot be imitated. It has the best health, developmental and psychological outcomes for the baby. I breastfed Taryn for 2 years and I hope to breastfeed this next one just as long, if not then my minimum goal is 1 year. I enjoyed the closeness and time to just the 2 of us. Breast milk is such a fascinating thing in the way that it adjusts its content throughout a feeding and as the baby grows. And portion control is not a concern as you cannot overfeed a breastfed baby. And through breastfeeding you are protecting your baby with your own antibodies to fight illness and helping develop their immune system. Sorry to be kind of fact based, but I have been re-reading my "New Mothers Guide to Breastfeeding" to refresh my mind so I am ready for this again!

Well, I've been thinking about my comment for this post for a while now, but I guess I better get it in before I miss the giveaway deadline.
Breastfeeding for me has been wonderful. Both times it was much harder than I had thought it would be, but with some wonderful support we were successful.
When Carly was an infant I occasionally used a Medela breast pump, but with Isaac the pump quit working for me. I tried several things to fix it, but I couldn't get it to work right. So I didn't really pump with him. He didn't mind, but looking back now I can see that it probably would have been easier on me if I had been able to "have a break" every now and then. When he was about to be weaned, I tried to pump with one a borrowed from a friend. My plan was to wean him from breast feeding, but still give him a cup of breast milk. Unfortunately my plan didn't work because my body wasn't used to the machine and just didn't produce enough milk to make it work.
I'm so glad that I was able to breast feed both of my kids and I plan to do the same for #3. The portions are right for your baby, the nutrients are perfect, and the immunity boost is simply amazing. God really knew what he was doing when He created this plan for nourishing our babies.
