Bonding With Dad Using Medela
I think that every parent can agree that those feeding moments are the most precious, whether it’s bottle or breast. That one on one time you get to bond with your baby, absorbing every last minute breathing in their smallness until they slowly close their lids and fall into a blissful nap… Ahhh, the most relaxing moments in a day! Giving thanks to the beauty you created!
As moms, we’re guaranteed those moments. It’s part of us, but dads however, well they need those moments just as much as we do. After the birth of each of our babies it was always a priority to purchase a Medela breastfeeding pump and have enough milk in a bottle so that Drew could have his turn. He was always very adamant about helping to feed. It was his duty as dad, he’s always been very hands on as a parent. From changing their diapers, to hooking the pump up to my boobs himself! Of course, this was like the best thing EVER.
I loved the help & loved knowing our babies had that one on one time with him thanks to Medela. It gave me the time to rest or ditch to have one on one time with myself! Pumping was such a breeze when it came time. NO fuss at all! It had just enough suction strength and fit over the breast just right. It’s actually really amazing to watch Medela Canada grow in the past years. The Medela Freestyle Double Electric Breast Pump is so highly recommended by hospitals & doctors all over! This kit has everything you need to pump, store & feed. It’s lightweight & portable you could basically pump anywhere at anytime with the 3 hour lasting battery & rechargeable battery pack.
The Medela Freestyle Double Electric kit includes the following:
- 1 Freestyle Monitor
- 1 Tote Bag
- 4-150ml breastmilk bottles & lids
- 1 Cooler bag & ice pack
- Personal fit breast shields 2 * 24mm & 2 * 27mm
- 2 Connectors
- 1 Hands free kit
- 1 Tubing
- 2 Bottle holders
- 1 Rechargeable battery
- 1 AC/DC transformer
- Quick start instructions & manual
Even if Drew didn’t do the feedings he was always very supportive in every way, by helping charge the batteries & cleaning the pump or bottles for me. Or even if he just grabbed me a glass of water and sat with me! Him & Medela made the process into feeding even more incredible! Dads are just as important as moms are. I’m so happy that Drew got the chance to experience those little moments with our babies building that strong bond they have now together!
