If you’re a new mother and plan on staying at home with your little one, you might be wondering why stay at home moms need breast pumps. It’s a very valid question that our Breastpump Specialists at Aeroflow Healthcare get asked often. While you might not be working away from the home or traveling much, being a stay at home mom is a full-time job and it is hard work! We have outlined a list of reasons that may help you decide why you’ll require a breast pump in the home.
- Breastfeeding is such a special experience that new mommies get to share with their infant. It allows for baby and mother to begin to build a beautiful connection and relationship. If your partner is able to participate in feeding, it too creates a unique bond between baby and the other parent. If you want to help in the growth of that relationship, having a breast pump gives them the opportunity to do so. Pumping allows you to store milk so that the other parent can feed the baby too, permitting them to form their own union.
- Date nights! We know this time is insanely busy but after everything, you deserve a night out once in awhile. Having a breast pump allows you to do so giving you an extra supply of milk in the fridge for the babysitter or grandparents.
- Just because it’s called a “stay at home” mom does not mean you’re always at home. There are still lots of things around the house and errands to run. Having a breast pump means that you can store milk for the sitter so you be out and about or it means you can pump on the go. Our Medela Pump In Style Advanced On The Go Tote upgrade breast pump comes with a trendy black bag, battery pack, freezer bag, ice pack, and storage containers so that you can pump wherever you might need to be.
- A critical reason why a lot of stay at home moms need breast pumps is that it helps relieve engorgement. Depending on your milk supply, it may be totally necessary for you to have one so that you can pump while you are not breastfeeding the baby, helping alleviate engorgement of your breasts.
