I had heard of medela many, many times before getting pregnant this time with baby girl but it was not until the whole experience of having her in the NICU that I actually got to use their products hands-on. Having my daughter taken to another hospital even before I was stitched back up did not, of course, give us any time to bond or nurse. Not having those first moment with her was incredibly hard. But what helped a little was the fact that I could pump while in the hospital to help my milk to come in for when she needed it.. Thankfully, our hospital had medela Symphony pumps for the mothers that needed them.
With the help from the medela pump at the hospital, the pump at the NICU as well as the pump I rented (all the same pumps!), my milk came in! And just this afternoon, I was able to nurse my little girl. I am so thankful to medela for helping me when I needed it and for creating such quality pumps that actually simulated a real baby and stimulated my milk to come in..! Thanks, medela!

And now medela has another wonderful product that I cannot wait to try with my baby girl when I get her home..
Introducing Calma: Designed exclusively for breastmilk feeding.
Switching from bottle back to breast has never been easier. Calma was developed using evidence-based research on babies’ natural feeding behavior so you can enjoy your breastfeeding bond longer.
With Calma, the milk will only flow if your baby works and creates vacuum to remove the milk. This enables the feeding behavior learned at the breast to be used with Calma.
Calma is supposed to work just like the breast in the way milk comes to the baby. Also, it has a very unique venting system that reduces the amount of air that baby gets into her belly.
Tha Calma bottle is definitely the most unique I have seen and I look forward to seeing it in action very soon!
Now one of you lucky readers can WIN a medela Calma bottle of your own!!
