Premature Babies and Breastmilk

Having your baby àhead of schedule` is a tough way to start. I should know, my twins came early at 34 weeks. Weighing only about 3 and 4lbs each, they just needed more time.

The nurses at the hospital were really clear that I would need to start expressing breastmilk as quickly as I could. They stressed the importance of feeding the twins breastmilk as much, and as soon as I could. They set me up on a Medela Symphony breastpump and I began breastpumping the day they were born.

Medela`s website has some great statistics on the importance of feeding breastmilk to preemies. It reinforces how crucial the early days for a preemie are and how important my job as a new mom was.

My experience with my premature twins led me to become and authorized rental station for the same Medela pumps I used in the hopsital years ago.

New Medela breastpump

Many of our customers purchase a breastpump like the MEDELA Swing when they are finished with the Symphony hospital grade pump rentals.

The Swing is a great pump but up until now was only a single breastpump. Medela is now introducing the Swing Maxi….a double breastpump.

 

The Swing will still be compact and quiet but now you can be finished pumping in half the time by double pumping. Awesome.
