Giveaway // Win a Medela Swing Electric Breastpump

Back in October I reviewed the fantastic Medela Swing Electric Breastpump. I found it so useful for increasing my milk supply when I was establishing breastfeeding with H-Bear; it’s definitely one of my essential baby items that I’d recommend to all Mamas-to-be to buy if they’re considering breastfeeding, as I found it much more effective than a manual pump and it really is a fantastic product (plus handy for travelling – M25 pumping anyone?!). I’m no longer  ...

Review // Medela Swing Electric Breast Pump

We were sent a Medela Swing Electric Breast pump to use as part of the Medela Mum campaign. I was really looking forward to putting it to the test, as I only had a manual pump when I was trying (and failing) to breastfeed Busby, and remember spending hours on the sofa, only to produce a minute amount of milk for her.

I’m writing this post with Indy munching away… again! It’s been quite a difficult few nights, but I’m feeling over the moon that I’ve reached a month (almost five weeks, in fact) of breastfeeding. You can read my early days of breastfeeding post here. Every week I think to myself “if I just get to the end of this week I’ll be happy”, and at the end of that week I give myself a big pat on the back and a large slice of cake. It’s not been  ...

Breastfeeding // The Early Days

“One Tuesday afternoon, the warm sun came out and POP! out of his Mama came a tiny and very hungry Baby. He started to look for some food.” As soon as HRH entered the world, he lifted his teeny head and looked for my breast… and not much has changed since that day two weeks ago. Establishing breastfeeding hasn’t been easy (is it ever?):
