Let’s be honest, spending so much time in a small room fiddling with flanges and tubes and holding your bottles in place for pumping is not the most exciting activity to do for a mom, without considering that your nipples will be most of the time dry and sore! It is also true that the (physical and emotional) satisfaction of filling a bag of milk for your hungry baby is almost as the second most rewarding thing to actually breastfeeding. If you also consider that pumping for 30 minutes x 8 times per day means roughly 4 hours, I mean, 4 hours tethered to a pump doing nothing, then freeing up your hands becomes essential, and that is where a pumping bra starts playing an essential role in a mom's daily life. Most moms start out without one, but quickly realize it is unsustainable – but how can we choose a pumping bra? Here some steps to follow for finding the pumping bra perfect for you.
Nurturally Pumping Bra
When a Mother of a premie started breastfeeding she tried all the of the 4 top-rated pumping bras on the market, even the painfully expensive leading seller, but she still ended up sitting in the bathroom holding up the bottles with her hands.
That was when she asked her husband, who is a mechanical engineer and owner of Chrome Cherry Design Studio for help. He immediately realised that all the bras rely on the pressure from the bra on the breast to hold the bottles in place. As the bottles get fuller the weight becomes too much and tilts the suction cups away from the breast, causing suction loss and leakage.
He said this is a fundamental design error as the bra needs some type of sling around the bottle’s neck to hang it from while it gets fuller and heavier.
That is how he and his wife started to redesign pumping bras to overcome all her complaints. Yes, she had many other issues with the bras she tested and when looking at the online reviews it was clear that other women had the same concerns.
He took on the challenge to design the perfect pumping bra as a special gift for his wonderful wife for being such a superwoman getting it all done, as a mommy as well as a business professional after going back to work, whilst still breast pumping 8 times a day.
We understand that the one thing a new mom never has enough of, is time. Among the many demands on moms' time, pumping does not have to be one of them. Nurturally Pumping Bra is designed for today’s busy moms on the go. So that they can have more baby time, work time, or simply, Me Time.
