My grandson is doing wonderfully and exclusively breastfeeding now. They had a few birth complications (and poor hospital information) that delayed things and he lost 11% the first few days. Fortunately, a Hygeia pump was available for her to use at home. It worked great and because of it she was able to supplement with her milk and it was only a couple of days to exclusively being at the breast. He is back to birth weight at two weeks. Thanks!
There’s so much to love about this pump that I’m not even sure where to start. I really like the pump. I was a little worried about giving up the hospital grade one but I’m getting the same output from this one and it’s so much more portable. With its adjustable speed and suction, it’s a lot more gentle on me than the Pump In Style. It may seem minor, but it’s also nice that it’s a lot quieter than the Pump in Style. It’s wonderful how light and tiny it is! It easily fits into my pumping bag and is very discreet.

There’s almost nothing more frustrating than getting all set up to pump and then having a problem getting the pump to function properly.

For many breastfeeding families, bottles are a regular part of their feeding routine. Whether the mother has returned to work, other caregivers are participating in the feeding, or the baby has challenges that make feeding directly at the breast difficult, being aware of how to feed an infant from a bottle is an important skill. [...]
I was her…that mom that had to pump for days just to have enough milk to go out with my husband to a movie. The one who could sit for 45 minutes and get just barely enough to cover the bottom of the container attached to my pump. If I was working, I just couldn’t [...]
