When my son was born he was admitted to the NICU because of a blood infection. He had to stay there for almost 15 days before we could bring him home. Those were the hardest days of my life. Along with a recuperating body that involved after-birth pains, soreness, and hormonal shifts, I had to go through the emotional pain of separating from my baby and worrying about his recovery.
I could not feed my baby, as he wasn’t allowed to have breast milk for the first few days. But I had a good breast milk supply that was causing me discomfort; I was having pain and swelling due to engorgement.
When my baby was allowed breast milk after a few days, I had to express the milk so that the nurses could feed him. But expressing milk by hand when I was already having engorgement problems was turning out to be too painful, and I had to do it for many days. That’s when I decided to try a breast pump.
I had heard good things about LuvLap products from some of my friends, so I bought the LuvLap Manual Breast Pump and it worked out wonderfully for me and my baby. It was so easy to express and collect milk with it that I wondered why I waited this long to use it. I wouldn’t have had to go through such discomfort and pain. I used it to express milk until my baby was healthy enough to breastfeed.
Though I am a stay at home mother and didn’t need to use the breast pump daily, I did use it whenever I had to leave my baby for a few hours and especially during traveling. The LuvLap Manual Breast Pump came in very handy in those times when I was facing discomfort in feeding my baby due to swelling or soreness.
Here are a few features I love about LuvLap Manual Breast Pump:

This is one of the best features I find in LuvLap Manual Breast Pump and was quite impressed by the same. It offers 3 level section adjustment that lets you adjust the intensity of the suction according to your comfort and need. This really makes the process of pumping quite simple for me.
