Pregnancy Awareness Month Products
Product #1 Medela hands-free pumping bra
Hands-free pumping made easy! Easy Expression is the newest addition to Medela's line of breastpump accessories.
Kristin: I am a working mom and I wasn't ready for how long it takes to get the milk out, but that's not how it works, so I was stuck holding things up to my breast and frustrated. To be hands free, it's amazing and total freedom. It gives you the freedom to do other things while pumping and it's easy to wear and wash.
Product #2 Ergobaby 360 carrier (launches this week)
Alisa: By far such a supportive carrier for the mom. It rests on the hips and relieves the back and grows with the baby. The older and heavier you can keep carriering. This is ideal for attachment parenting. Four different ways to carry the baby: forward carry, forward facing front, back, and swing. Kristin: I used to have more than one, but this is four in one. My child had acid reflux, so I had to hold him upright. With the Erogbaby four position 360 baby carrier, you now have four comfortably safe, ergonomic positions to nurture your child's developmental growth with your loving support and attention.
Product #3 NoseFrida (Snot Sucker)
It's so gross sounding, but it helps with the snot. If they need the relief and if their nose is stuffed, there is no way to blow and they can't breastfeed. Nosefrida is a doctor recommended nasal aspirator that uses a hygiene filter to prevent mucus transfer from child to user. It was designed to be safe and effective for newborns as well as toddlers. Nosefrida is better and safer than other aspirators since you never put anything inside the nose and you control the amount of suction you apply. It does not irritate the sensitive lining of the nose. Children tolerate Nosefrida better than other aspirators. Hygiene filters should be changed after each use. Nosefrida is BPA free and contains NO phthalates.
Product #4 Windi Gas & Colic Relief
If you have ever had a colic baby, this is a wonderful remedy that doesn't require giving them pills. It's small and goes into the rectum to help the baby express gas. As babies are still trying to learn their intestinal system, they cry and cry and don't know how to get rid of it. The Windi Gas & Colic Relief from Fridababy is a natural solution for colic, constipation, and other gas-related problems. The Windi works instantly and does not require ingestion of any drops or medication. The Windi is a single-use catheter that helps babies get rid of excess gas. Designed to be safe and effective, The Windi cannot harm your baby if used as instructed. Most pediatric professionals are familiar with the method of using a rectal thermometer to relieve gas, colic, and constipation. The Windi is designed specifically for this purpose. The soft, pliable, hollow tube features a rounded tip that is long enough to reach passed the muscle that prevents the release of the gas and also has a stopper to prevent an insertion too far.
