Working Out The Kinks With The Philips Avent Comfort Double Electric Breast Pump + GIVEAWAY!

Sunday, April 1st at 2:54 pm we welcomed our 8th addition to our family. A perfect sweet girl named Mia. Although some things happened after birth that I still don’t like talking about – she is here, she is healthy and she is happy!

I haven’t shared much about what all happened until now. Having gestational diabetes sometimes there are big risks and complications. Although Mia was born a healthy and strong 8lbs 4oz and 22.5 inches long her blood sugar was low and her bilirubin number was slightly elevated. This landed her in the NICU for 2 and a half days to stabilize her blood sugar and had us going back and forth to the hospital another 4 days to make sure her bilirubin numbers levelled out. Now she is home, perfect and done all her follow up appts we get to enjoy her sweet little self. It’s been an emotional roller coaster the last week and a half for me especially but we’re settling in just great with our new addition!

Breastfeeding hasn’t always been something I’ve been interested in. In fact, I was very ignorant to it for my first 4 babies and strictly breastfed my last 3 (and now of course Mia!) I didn’t always realize how important it was or good for baby it truly is until I had a gold support system in place and did some research of my own so now it’s something I make sure we succeed at.

With Mia being in the NICU like Hanna, my main worry beyond her health and safety was our breastfeeding relationship. You fear the worst – will she be able to feed? Will she be able to feed enough so my milk comes in? Will they allow her to nurse on demand? Of course being healthy and perfect aside from lower sugar levels I was able to hold her every second of every single day and nurse her whenever wanted and that quickly became every 3 hours!

Luckily for me this was good news for my milk production and it came in on schedule. A little too much, but it came in and I’ve been thankful to have the Avent Double Electric Breast Pump because I’ve had to pump a couple times to help elevate some of the excess milk I’ve had. I’ve always been somewhat of an overproducer but I wasn’t prepared for how much milk I’d be making this time! Usually pumping isn’t recommended for the first 4-6 weeks until a good breastfeeding relationship is established, but sometimes, in the beginning, its very necessary, especially for us overproducers – even to pump a little kink or two out!

Important Pump info

Are you looking for a new pump? Here are some reasons the Philips Avent Comfort Double Electric Breast Pump is a great choice!

  • More comfortable pumping position due to unique design
  • Features a gentle stimulation mode and 3 pumping settings
  • Soft massage cushion with warm feel
  • Intuitive assembly. Easy visual matching of parts
  • Compact lightweight design, includes handy travel bag
  • Includes Natural bottle and nipple for natural latch on
  • Easy cleaning due to the small number of separate parts
  • Easy operation at the touch of a button

I don’t pump often or a lot but it never hurts to have a little milk stash in the freezer because you just never know. Also, sometimes you need a little bit of relief if baby sleeps a little longer than usual – so it’s great to have a no-nonsense breast pump on hand that is easy to assemble, use and gets the job done with no hassle. I’ve tired many breast pumps in my 15 years of on and off nursing and I am a big fan of this Philips.

I keep the Philips Avent Comfort Double Electric Breast Pump beside my bed so if baby sleeps longer stretches at night, and I need a little tiny bit of relief – it’s there ready for me. The best part about this pump is that it’s so quiet, I don’t disrupt anyone at night if I need to use it!

    I have a friend who is expecting her first grandchild. I’m going to have to send her over here to learn about this brand and enter the giveaway for her daughter. My daughter used this breast pump and was 100% satisfied with it.

    I have a few people in my life that are pregnant right now and could use something like this! I used a breast pump when I first had my kiddos. It definitely helped me so that I can go out and my husband could feed the baby. I have never heard of this breast pump but I will tell my friends about it.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I have to share this information with my friend who’s expecting.

    My daughter used a breast pump and loved hers. Wonderful for those women wanting to nurse or who just want to store up some extra milk for when they aren’t home with the baby.

    This sounds like a great breast pump. I had one and it didn’t work very well. I only could get a little breastmilk, so I just gave up. I wish this one had been around!

    I absolutely adore Philips Avent baby bottle products. They are durable and lightweight without being too expensive.

    I love this brand. When my boys were babies, I had so many Philips Avent products and was always super happy with them.

    I just saw this pump the other day when I was looking at my daughters baby registry. I also know a few moms who love Philips Avent products. I remember purchasing a few of their baby bottles for my grandbaby two years ago.

    I breastfed exclusively for over a year and my pump was a lifesaver. It allowed my husband to feed the baby and allow me a chance to get outside for a few hours. This is a great pump!

  • Reply Athena April 12, 2018 at 8:53 pm

    I breastfed my kids for a year each and my breast pump was put to good use.

  • Reply Shakeia Rieux April 13, 2018 at 3:03 am

    I love Philip Avent products. I have two friends who are currently expecting, and I know this would come handy for them.

    This makes me miss having a baby at home. I have never used a breast pump when I had my two babies.

  • Reply Mimi Green April 13, 2018 at 7:28 am

    A double breast pump is a must have. I had one with baby #2 and it made the experience better. My bestie is 40 and pregnant she needs this.

  • Reply Nancy at Whispered Inspirations April 13, 2018 at 10:05 am

    This is really neat! What a fantastic giveaway you are offering. I know a few people who are expecting so I am going to have to share this with them.

    I did not have children. That wasn’t my choice; it just didn’t happen. Congratulations on your new baby! I’m happy for you!

  • Reply Carol Cassara April 13, 2018 at 11:14 am

    It’s a must have for moms especially since breast pumps make life easier. I think this one from Avent is perfect and I love that it’s much more comfortable than most breast pumps available today. Glad your baby is safe and sound! She’s adorable!

    This looks great and so helpful to breastfeeding mums. I had a pump and it was a life saver!

  • Reply Marysa April 13, 2018 at 3:54 pm

    I exclusively pumped for many months with my kids (6 months and 16 months!). It is so important to have a good pump. It looks like this one has lots of great features!

  • Reply Donna Ward April 13, 2018 at 7:39 pm

    That baby looks so cute bundled up in that little blanket. What a an adorable photo!

  • Reply Shelley R Zurek April 17, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    I am definitely past this stage of my life. But I know a good breast pump is so useful to new moms.
