By the end of this month my Sweet Baby Girl will be 6 months.. We've held off on introducing foods since her doctor told us to wait until she's 6 months and would prefer she be exclusively breastfed until then. Pretty soon she'll be eating real food, and even drinking from sippy cups. I cannot deny my heart will break a little when I fully wean her which I don't plan to do for a while as long as she wants to nurse I'm going to let her. However I cannot justify giving her juices, and prefer her main liquid continue to be breast milk.
I'm going to start pumping when she snacks away on other meals aside from nursing sessions and with the help of my new Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump. I can ensure she gets that nutrition she still needs and even use it to thin out foods that I make her homemade instead of adding water. Breastmilk is seriously miracle stuff.. Not only is it great for her to consume, but also when she gets a boo boo from scratching, or even when I took layers of skin off my thumb. I kid you not, healed within a fraction of the time! How could I just let myself go and dry up? I don't keep much of a freezer stock as I have heard that some of the nutrients can't survive freezing so I plan to pump and save in the refrigerator for a as needed. I had planned to go back to work and this pump would have been perfect for that. So I definitely recommend it for a nursing mama who is not a stay at home mommy!
"You don’t have to clean the narrow tubing, and your milk stays purely yours"
With the Purely Yours I can pump at my leisure and it even has a carry bag for when I'm out or traveling. It features a CustomControl™--Dual suction and speed adjustability allows me to choose from a total of 32 combinations to achieve the best comfort and milk flow every time, Proven Airlock Protection™ which means their diaphragm barrier keeps the air from your pump from coming in contact with your milk, CustomFit Flange System™ if the standard size flange (25.0 mm) included with Purely Yours is too large or too small, six other flanges sizes are available for a good fit at first and later as your body changes. It can be used with an AC adapter, 6 AA Batteries, or a Car adapter. It's so tiny and compact and weights less than 1lb!
I really love that it has the Proven Airlock Protection. I cannot see myself using and trusting anything but a closed system. The last thing I want is mold growing from trapped milk and I can also rely on using this for our next baby. I am confident that this pump will ensure that I maintain the supply I need while my daughter may nurse less, she won't be getting less. That makes me one happy mommy :)
