FREE Breastpump? See How with Aeroflow Breastpumps!
I am a mom to two boys – age 10 and 8 – and was a gestational carrier for twins that are now (almost) 5 years old. Each time I was pregnant, I didn’t put a lot of expectations or demands on my pregnancies, the delivery or what may or may not happen after the babies were born. That just seemed like too much pressure, and after trying to get pregnant for over 5 years, I just couldn’t do that to myself.
I always planned on breastfeeding, but mentally prepared myself in case that might not work out. I didn’t have a great supply with either of my boys (which is why I didn’t offer to pump for the twins), but I was able to nurse or pump for my oldest son the first four months of his life until I went back to work full-time. With my youngest son, I nursed or pumped and supplemented just one bottle a day with formula for his first year of life. That was back in 2010 and 2012 respectively.
Are you a new or expecting momma who is planning to nurse and pump or exclusively pump for baby?
There are so many pumps on the market – manual, battery-powered, or electric – and they can be expensive! I was lucky to have a very generous friend give me her pump so I only had to purchase new tubing and supplies. But, did you know that since 2013, new moms don’t have to pay full price for a breast pump? So exciting!! The ACA requires insurance companies to cover breastfeeding support and supplies. This could mean a pump and, maybe, even supplies for as low as NOTHING out of pocket!
Even better, there is a company available to help you through the process!
