It is always a chuckle to hear people describe breastfeeding as free. There are many remarkable things about breastfeeding, free is not one of them. The tools and support available includes a broad range of options. Our much loved Lilu Massage Bra is one of them. And, this year, for the first time it joins the ranks of trusted products nursing and pumping mothers rely on with outstanding results. (So much so, we hope you have recommended the bra to your friends!)
Well here is some news - the bra will be offered at a 20% savings as part of this year’s holiday shopping deals this upcoming Amazon Prime Day, scheduled for Tuesday, October 11th and Wednesday, October 12th, 2022.
For those of you who are meeting us for the first time, hello! Here is a bit about us - The Lilu Massage Bra is hands free. It gently compresses the breasts to encourage milk flow, relieve engorgement and prevent clogged ducts while you pump. This keeps you both comfortable and confident - all good!
Moms who have used our Lilu Massage Bra have spoken and call us “a pumping savior” -what an honor. Better still, we will be included as part of a group of trusted brands and carefully chosen products that will be a part of Prime Day. Now is a good time to plan for Prime Day.
We spent time with hundreds of moms, getting to know their favorite brands. We curated a list of deals and discounts on products that can make your everyday life as a mom easier and more convenient.
Here's our guide for deals to look out for as a pumping mom on Amazon Prime Day.
Back-up breast pumps
Nursing and pumping friendly bras
Somewhere to keep your baby safe and entertained while you pump
All the pumping gear you’ve been meaning to get and haven’t
Back up breast pumps
Whether it be for days when you know you’ll be out and about most of the day, or you forget the electrical cord at home or there’s a power outage, it’s always recommended and nice to have a back up breast pump that carries a charge or simply doesn’t require electricity.
Luckily, Amazon has a wide array of breast pumps to choose from and some of them already feature discounts ahead of Prime Day.
A lightweight (and relatively quiet) on-the-go breast pump is the Medela’s Freestyle Flex, currently $299 on Amazon, that’s 21% off for Prime Day. Medela also makes an amazing manual breast pump, that’s currently 38% off, at $28.72.
While nursing and/or pumping, having a supportive bra that makes it easy to nurse or pump without too much hassle can make your life infinitely easier.
Maria from our team, with both of her babies, purchased a couple packs of the comfy, affordable, and highly rated Hofish nursing bras from Amazon. They are currently 15% off and at $24.22 for a pack of 3 there really is no better bang for your buck.
Somewhere to keep baby safe and entertained while you pump
If you’ve ever pumped while taking care of a baby you’re probably familiar with having them get tangled up in your pump’s tubing and messing with your breast pump’s suction, sometimes even forcing you to cut your pump time short. Having a place to put the baby down safely and keep them entertained while you pump makes pumping a lot less stressful, especially as they get older and require more stimuli.
For that check out Amazon’s discounts on baby gyms, baby bouncers and activity centers. They come at all price points and designs, from minimal to colorful, so you are bound to find something that both you and your baby can enjoy. Better yet, most of them already feature discounts for Prime Day.
All the pumping gear you’ve been meaning to buy and haven’t
Let’s face it, as millennial moms we splurge on our children and sometimes leave some of the items we really want for later because we want to be mindful of our household budgets. Here’s a list of things pumping gear I didn’t regret buying as part of my pumping journey and I’m sure you won’t either.
Burp cloths; because breasts leak, babies spit up and sometimes you’ll spill some (or a lot) of your pumped milk and having a soft muslins burp cloth on hand makes cleaning up a lot easier.
Breastfeeding friendly bottles; trust your lactation consultant on which bottles are best for your baby. ComoTomo bottles, Dr. Brown’s- if they have an Amazon Store, they will likely feature discounts for Prime Day so seek them out and stock up on your baby’s favorite bottles.
Remember that pumping moms also need to take care of their nipples. There’s a learning curve to both breastfeeding and pumping, and both can result in sore and cracked nipples. Beaugen cushions are great for elastic nipples or simply to keep your nipples from rubbing against your flanges. They come in sizes, so make sure you get the right size for your flanges. Likewise, Lavie Silver Cups will also be available for Prime Day and they can really help heal your nipples more quickly. Those are already 20% off on Amazon.
A pumping bag that fits everything. If you are a mom on-the-go having a pumping bag in which you can pre-pack everything you’ll need for a day of pumping outside your home the night before will give you peace of mind and make your day a lot less stressful. Amazon has great options, some of which will even fit larger pumps, like the Spectra S1 and S2, without breaking the bank.
Finally, as many pumping moms are well aware, pumping requires a seemingly endless amount of washing and cleaning of pump parts and bottles. Having a separate wash basin for all your pump parts and baby’s bottles is not only recommended by the CDC, but it’s also key to keeping them from getting contaminated with harmful bacteria. You can also find great easy to use pump parts and bottle sterilizers on Amazon that fit your lifestyle and keep everything perfectly clean and safe for you and your baby.
