I didn't think it necessary to purchase a breast pump when I was pregnant with my son. I rented a Medela hospital-grade breast pump for the first two weeks after the baby was born and found that it had significantly increased my milk production and saved me considerable time for post labor recovery. Then I decided that breast pumps are a very good investment for moms who plan to breastfeed for an extended period of time and for more than one baby. So I bought my own Medela Pump In Style Advanced Pump with the Metro Bag, which helped me breastfeed my baby with ease for over one year!
The Medela party was quite an eye-opener for me. I didn't know that Medela carries such a wide range of breastfeeding products, not just breast pumps. I also enjoyed refreshing my memory about the breastfeeding experience and exchanged tips and funny anecdotes with my friends. The Medela website is a great source of information for nursing moms. You can find the benefits of breastfeeding, tips and solutions, and use the product select to help identify the breast pump that best meets your needs. If you love Medela products as much as I do, don't forget to show your support by following them on Facebook and Twitter. Interested in finding out how other Medela parties were going?
