Elvie breast pump Tag

Which breast pump helps busy moms pump faster from anywhere?

We asked one of the busiest moms we know which breast pump she preferred.

Rosina Sigloch is a work-at-home mom with six kids ranging in age from three-months old up. With four girls and two boys, Rosina has seen it all when it comes to raising kids. She’s also had years of pumping experience, though she had been relying on manual pumps with her earlier children as breast pumps, at the time, were not covered by most insurance providers.

“I hadn’t used a breast pump in forever before my daughter. In the past, I always just had the hand pumps. When I found out I was pregnant this time, my sister-in-law told me that insurance companies cover pumps now. I have so much extra milk, I decided to go for it,” Rosina said in a recent interview.

Rosina’s mom Donna is a lead IBCLC/Nurse Practitioner who also has extensive knowledge of breast pumps. She sent Rosina all the pumps her insurance would cover.

“I’d seen an ad for the Willow,” Rosina said. “I thought, ‘That looks so cool! I can wear it without having the bottle!’ But it was really expensive, and I didn’t want to spend too much.”

When Rosina found the Elvie Stride, she was thrilled she could have the same benefits as the Willow but in a breast pump covered by her insurance.  “I love the fact that you can just put it on and go,” she said. “You don’t have to sit and wait to finish. I can just stick the cups in my nursing bra and go about my business!”

The Elvie Stride is a wearable bra covered by many insurance plans.

The Elvie Stride is 100% covered by Tricare for active duty military moms and mil-spouses and for civilian moms by many other insurance companies. In other words, you can apply your insurance breast pump benefit to the Stride and enjoy the benefits of a premium wearable pump without the premium price tag. However, this pump is only sold through select durable medical equipment (DME) companies, like Milk N Mamas Baby.

How does the Stride stack up in terms of other breast pump benefits, according to Rosina and other moms who have used it?

The Stride has great suction, and it pumps quickly.

“I wondered at first if this pump could actually have enough suction to work the right way,” Rosina mentioned. “It definitely did, even more so! I could have six ounces of breastmilk in less than ten minute. That’s super-efficient. The suction was really good and so quick!”

The Stride is easy to use and clean.

In addition to being easy to use, The Stride cleans up easily. It’s even dishwasher safe. Rosina noted, “I can just pop the cups off, and they’re so easy to clean!”

This super modern breast pump is also ultra-quiet, smart, and customizable.

Elvie designed the Stride with noise reduction technology so that doesn’t draw attention when you’re out and about. The hands-free pump connects with the free “Pump with Elvie” app, which allows you to control your pump remotely while tracking your milk production. You can choose from ten intensity settings in both Stimulation and Expression modes for optimal comfort and efficiency.

“I’m really happy with my purchase and working with Krisi at Milk N Mamas Baby was great!” Rosina said.

It’s great to work with busy moms like Rosina, too!

Milk N Mamas Baby is owned and operated by women who have experienced the challenges and joys of balancing breastfeeding with work and family. We were lobbying for insurance to cover breastfeeding equipment before the ACA required it, and our women-lead team continues to advocate for mamas like Rosina and their babies every day, one mother at a time. We’re here for you, too! Get in touch today for help picking out the right breast pump for you.

Should I reuse my old breast pump for my second baby?

Most breast pumps can be used for multiple pregnancies.

It can take some time to get used to a breast pump, and it’s not uncommon for moms to get attached to the one they’ve already got. Fortunately, most modern breast pumps are built to be durable, and they’re usually tough enough to be used for multiple pregnancies if you’re cleaning, maintaining, and storing them properly. The same goes for hard plastic pump accessories like bottles and breast shields that are still in good working order. However, you should replace all silicone and soft plastic parts as they’re more difficult to clean and sanitize.

Open system breast pumps are not suitable for long-term use.

Closed system pumps are designed to prevent breastmilk from seeping into the pump motor. In open system breast pump, there’s no barrier, which means moisture, condensation, and breast milk can get into the interior of the pump. Because these interior components can’t be easily accessed and sanitized, they have the potential to breed mold and bacteria. As such, it’s best not to reuse open system breast pumps.

Most insurance providers do cover a new breast pump for each new child.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, most insurance plans are required to cover the cost of one new double electric breast pump for every pregnancy. However, policies may vary. Some provide new breast pumps each year or every other year. We can verify your insurance company’s breast pump policy easily if you’re not sure. Regardless, if you’ve paid for the insurance, you should definitely collect on the breast pump benefits. Even if you’re completely in love with your old reliable pump, there are good reasons to purchase a new one with your insurance credit.

Have a backup breast pump in case the old one quits performing.

Like all electronics, even the best breast pumps will deteriorate over time. That’s why most breast pump warranties only cover specific problems with the pump or the motor and only for one to two years after your purchase. If you love your pump, get a backup model for the day your old one begins to show signs of wear and tear.

Have a stay-at-home breast pump and a wearable breast pump for traveling.

You could also use your breast pump benefit to mix it up a little. Is your favorite pump the Medela Pump In Style that you use in the comfort of your own home? Give an Elvie Stride or other lightweight, wearable breast pump a try for times when you’re on vacation or headed to the office.

Elvie Stride Double Electric Breast Pump

How breast pumps revolutionized breastfeeding

When was the first breast pump patented?

For most of human history, breastfeeding was the only way to nourish a new baby. Even breast pumps are older than you might think. The first pump was patented in 1854, and it was generally used as an aid for mothers with inverted nipples or for infants who were too frail for breastfeeding. It wasn’t comfortable, but it was a lifesaver for families who needed it.

Do all moms pump?

According to the 2005–2007 Infant Feeding Practices Study II (IFPS II), nearly 9 in 10 breastfeeding mothers had successfully expressed milk at some point during the baby’s first year. Many of those moms used a breast pump regularly. In some cases, they fed their infants exclusively pumped milk.

How are today’s breast pumps different?

Breast pumps have improved steadily over the years, becoming more comfortable as they became more commonplace. Today, pumps come in a wide range of styles, sizes, and suctions. While hospital strength double electric breast pumps are still better used at home, many new pumps are silent, discreet, and portable. Women can even pump in their nursing bras without cords or bags to draw attention.

What are the benefits of breast pumps?

Breast pumps aren’t always necessary, but they offer a lot of benefits. If you’re a military mom or a mom who has to return to work early, a breast pump makes sure your baby doesn’t miss out on all of the nutrients only found in breast milk. If you experience frequent engorgement, pumping offers relief. On the flip side, regular pumping can help to keep your milk supply up if you’re worried about your production. It’s also great to have on hand if you have to give up breastfeeding suddenly and need to slowly back down your supply.

Are there other revolutions in the history of pumping?

Definitely. Our company’s history is rooted in revolutionary ideas where pumping is concerned. Our founder Krisi LaMont lobbied on behalf of nursing moms for insurance to cover breastfeeding equipment before the ACA required it. Our women-lead team continues to advocate for mamas and babies every day, one mother at a time.

What are the most revolutionary breast pumps?

In terms of space age technology, the Elvie Stride probably wins out. You can pump directly into your bra using an app on your phone. However, pumps like the Spectra S1 are truly revolutionary in their ability to help mothers who may require hospital strength suction. The most revolutionary pump for any mom, though, is the one she feels comfortable with. Need help finding your breast pump? We’re here for you. Give us a call or email today.

5 tips for pumping success when you return to work

Returning to work after having your baby can be a mixed bag of feelings. On the one hand, no one can blame you for feeling a little excited about the prospect of spending time with adults. On the other, you’re definitely going to miss that little bundle of joy while you’re away. If you’re breastfeeding, it can be even more daunting and more emotional. How do you find time during the workday to pump? Will your colleagues be supportive?

Don’t worry. We’ve been there ourselves, and we have five tips that will help you make the transition smoothly.

Know your rights

Thanks to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), most employers are required to provide reasonable break time for nursing mothers to express breast milk. They must also provide a private space that is not a bathroom in which employees can express milk at their discretion. There are some exemptions, which leads to our next tip.

Know your workplace pumping policies

Some workplaces are exempt from the Break Time For Nursing Mothers law. For example, if your workplace has fewer than fifty employees and they can show that following the law would create an undue hardship, they do not have to provide nursing breaks. Talk to your employer early to learn their pumping policies. If they don’t have policies yet, work with them to establish expectations before you return to work.

Prepare ahead of time

Pumping at work is much more common than it once was, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be able to walk right into the first day without a plan in place. Don’t wait until the last minute. Get all your ducks in a row and your supplies gathered together a month or two before you go back. That gives you plenty of time to check and double-check to make sure you’ve got everything you need, including flanges and freezer bags. Around the same time, start building up a stash of frozen breast milk to make sure you’ve got backup if your first few weeks are more hectic than you anticipated.

Start practicing now

Part of being prepared is practicing, so start pumping a month or more before you go back to work to get the hang of it. Then, practice pumping in your work clothes to make sure you’re at ease when you return to the workplace.

Pick a pump that works for workplaces

The right breast pump makes all the difference when it comes to returning to work, and one of our personal favorites is also covered by insurance. The Elvie Stride was created by working mothers to work for working mothers. The hands-free bra is worn under clothing and collects milk in-bra, plus it’s ultra-quiet, which makes it super discreet. You can literally pump at your desk on in the cab of a truck with the Stride! That makes returning to work so much easier.

If you’re a mom trying to balance work with nursing, the working moms at Milk N Mamas Baby are on your side. Never hesitate to reach out to us if you need a little extra support and encouragement.

premium breast pump and insurance

Should I upgrade to a premium breast pump like Elvie or Spectra S1?

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), all new moms are entitled to a breast pump. According to Healthcare.Gov:

Health insurance plans must provide breastfeeding support, counseling, and equipment for the duration of breastfeeding. These services may be provided before and after birth… Your health insurance plan must cover the cost of a breast pump.

However, which breast pumps your plan will cover may vary, as noted below from the same site:

It may be either a rental unit or a new one you’ll keep. Your plan may have guidelines on whether the covered pump is manual or electric, the length of the rental, and when you’ll receive it (before or after birth).

Most plans will cover the cost of a double-electric breast pump, and many breast pump manufacturers offer qualifying pumps, including Medela, Ameda, and Spectra. On the other hand, many premium pumps are not covered fully by healthcare, though you can purchase them at a fraction of the cost using your healthcare credit.

What are the benefits of premium pumps?

For many moms, a standard double-electric pump will do the job. They may not be as convenient for moms who are on the go, however. Premium pumps often offer features that make pumping easier and more comfortable, for example, wearable hubs, wireless motors, and even smart technology. Take a look at some of these premium pumps to get a better understanding of what your upgrade means in terms of added benefits.

Elvie Double Electric Breast Pump

Dubbed “the world’s first silent wearable breast pump,” the Elvie Pump eliminates cleaning tubes and charging wires. The hubs fit in your bra and are controllable by a remote, giving you complete freedom to pump and go.

Note: While the Elvie Pump is considered a premium pump, the Elvie Stride offers many of the same perks while also being covered by most health plans.

Spectra S1 Double Electric Hospital Strength Breast Pump

The silent, portable Spectra S1 Hospital Grade Double Electric Breast Pump offers 300mmHg suction, double pumping, and a massage mode to encourage speedy letdown. You can adjust both suction strength and cycle speed, and the pump even comes with a night light and timer.

BabyBuddha® Complete Kit

Another ground-breaking pump, the BabyBuddha maximizes freedom while minimizing hassle. You simply hang the compact pump around your neck using the lanyard for a totally hands-free pumping experience. It’s quiet, discreet, and comes with extra-soft cushions to prevent nipple soreness.

Your breast pump options are as unique as you.

Choosing the best breast pump for your situation ensures more successful pumping sessions. You’ll be more comfortable and more equipped to handle all of your other responsibilities if you have a pump suited to your lifestyle. In some cases, a standard double-electric pump will do. In others, investing in an upgrade can save time, money, and frustration down the line.

If you’re not sure which breast pump is right for you, get in touch with your friends at Milk N Mamas Baby for expert and compassionate guidance.

Must-have accessories for breastfeeding moms

We’re hoping you’re spoiling the new mom in your life with dinners that she doesn’t have to cook and cozy pajamas that she’ll have plenty of time to sleep in. While you’re spoiling her, make sure her necessities are stocked up. If she’s planning to breastfeed, we recommend these must-have accessories to make her life easier and more comfortable.

Nursing Bras and Pumping Bustiers

A comfortable nursing bra is a must for nursing mothers. They provide support for tender breasts as well as easy, discreet access for breastfeeding babies. They also offer coverage and prevent leakage when nipples leak. If you’re pumping, you should also invest in a hands-free pumping bra like the Medela Easy Expression Bustier or the Simple Wishes Pumping Bra.

Tip: Wait until later in your third trimester to purchase a nursing bra or bustier. Your breast size will peak at around eight months and remain at that cup size for several months postpartum.

Nursing Pads

Nursing pads absorb leaks between feedings, keeping your bra and your nipples drier. This prevents irritation and promotes air flow to tender skin. Pads also provide a soft barrier to prevent your bra from rubbing sore, bruised nipples.

Tip: Medela Washable Nursing Pads can be tossed in with the laundry, saving on the cost of constantly replacing pads.

Nipple Cream

During the first few weeks of breastfeeding, it’s common for nipples to become more sensitive. Nursing can cause the tender skin to dry out, to become cracked and itchy, and sometimes to bleed. Over time, your body gets used to the new conditions, and your nipples will heal. During those first few weeks, though, a good nipple cream can ease your pain and speed up recovery.

Tip: You can get a 12 oz. tube of Medela Tender Care Lanolin for Tender Breasts PLUS disposable nursing bra pads, breastmilk bags, and more in the Medela Accessory Starter Set.

Totes

In some cultures, mothers stay in bed with their newborn for the first month or more to give both time to get to know one another and adjust to their new life together. That’s not the way here, though. Moms are up and at ‘em earlier than ever, and if that’s your plan, plan to be carrying a tote or two along with your new bundle of joy.

Tip: You can pick up stylish cooler bags, breast pump bags, and even bundles of bags in a variety of colors and patterns from Milk N Mamas Baby when you purchase your breast pump.

Portable Pump

If you’re going to be an on-the-go kind of mom, a portable pump is a must-have accessory. We love the hands-free Elvie Stride if you’re planning to pump while traveling, but it’s also great for pumping around the house, at work, or running errands. We’ve even seen women wearing the Stride on ski slopes!

Tip: If you’ve got an FSA/HSA card, you can use your funds to purchase a portable pump like the Stride or the lightweight BabyBuddha®  to compliment your normal use pump.

Pick up everything a breastfeeding mom needs at Milk N Mamas Baby

From pumps to accessories, at Milk N Mamas Baby, we’ve got everything you need for a comfortable breastfeeding and pumping experience. Give us a call to get started.

Can I use my FSA/HSA card to purchase a breast pump?

Can I use my FSA/HSA card to purchase a breast pump?

Many moms who call us about purchasing a breast pump have a Flexible Savings Account (FSA) or Healthcare Savings Account (HSA). They want to know if they can use their FSA or HSA cards to cover expenses related to nursing and breast pumps. Good news! Milk N Mamas Baby does take FSA and HSA cards, and you can use them for a lot more than you might imagine.

Backup Breast Pumps

Breast pumps are 100% covered by health insurance in the United States thanks to the ACA. However, in most cases, only one pump is covered per birth. Fortunately, pumps are also FSA/HSA eligible. That means you could use some of your funds to invest in a second pump to use at work, so you don’t have to haul your primary pump back and forth. You could pick up a sleek, portable pump like the Elvie Stride or a manual pump as a backup for road trips and other times when a breast pump malfunction might leave you swollen and desperate to pump.

Upgraded Breast Pumps

While most breast pumps are 100% covered, some premiums pumps like the Elvie Pump or the Spectra S1 are not. With your FSA/HSA card, you can upgrade to a premium pump that isn’t 100% covered by insurance.

Extra Pump Parts

It never hurts to have spare parts for your pump in case one finds its way down the drain during a wash or no longer works optimally. Replacing parts like tubing, valves, membranes, and nipple shields can extend the life of your pump and ensure comfortable pumping, and breast pump parts are covered by FSA/HSA.

Extra Bottles and Breast Milk Storage Bags

Bottles get lost in the backseat. Breast milk storage bags are single use. But you can secure a stash of collection bottles and bags through FSA/HSA to ensure you never get caught without one.

Breast Milk Coolers

Breast milk coolers make pumping on the go a breeze, and they also allow you to bring along extra bottles when you’re out on the town for the day. Pick up a beautiful Sarah Wells cooler and ice pack and put it on your FSA/HSA card, and you’re ready to roll.

Hands Free Nursing Bra

This is another must have accessory for on-the-go moms, and you can pick up a high quality, comfortable nursing bustier with your FSA/HSA card.

Lactation Massager

Having trouble with plugged ducts and engorgement? A milk expression tool like the LaVie Lactation Massager can improve milk flow and relieve the pain associated with engorgement. And you can purchase one right here with your FSA/HSA card!

We’re here to help

That’s a lot, but it’s not all! Your FSA/HSA card has the power to transform your breastfeeding and pumping experience by equipping you with the very best tools. And we’re here to help you find the tools that suit your needs best. Give us a call or email today for more information or guidance on making pumping more comfortable, productive, and hassle-free using your FSA/HSA account.

Tips for pumping on the go during holiday travel season

Holiday travel is a mixed bag. After nearly two years of pandemic life, the idea of getting on the road to grandma’s house is exciting. But it can also be a little stressful, especially if you’re trying to maintain a pumping schedule to keep your little one fat, happy, and protected from the flu and other seasonal viruses. Never fear, mama! With a little planning, you can virtually eliminate the hassle associated with pumping on the run so you can enjoy your holidays wherever you are.

Preparation

Being prepared ahead of time is key to a successful trip when you’re traveling with a baby and a breast pump. As a mom, you’re probably already tired, so trying to plan last minute is bound to get you in trouble. Nothing is quite as nauseating as getting five hours down the road and realizing you’ve forgotten something important.

Make a list and check it twice

What are your must have items when you’re pumping? Make a list right now so you can check everything off as you pack and once more as you load up the day of the trip. Don’t forget items like:

  • Spare pump parts
  • Breast milk storage bags
  • Backup manual pump

Pack early

Last minute packing inevitably leads to leaving behind important things (and, often, bringing less important things). Pack the day before you’re due to leave, at least, to ensure you’re thinking straight and checking that list.

Invest in a comfortable nursing bra (or two)

Breasts are more sensitive while you’re nursing and pumping, so treat them right – especially when you’re already going to be under some stress. Since breasts are larger when they’re fuller, err on the size of a bra that fits at that most tender time. Tight bras are the worst, and you don’t want to have that kind of negativity in your life during the holidays.

Take a reliable (preferably portable) breast pump

You do not want to get to your destination only to discover that your pump has gone kaput. Since many traditional pumps are bulky, we recommend a portable breast pump like the Elvie Stride. This little breast pump has revolutionized pumping and travel. Don’t believe me? Just do a search of #elviestride on Instagram and check out all the moms pumping on ski slopes and by hotel pools! The Stride’s two sleek hubs fit neatly into any standard nursing bra. In other words, you can literally wear them anywhere, including at a holiday dinner table, without anyone noticing. Plus, they’re hands-free, which means you can pump and drive if you want.

The catch is that you can only purchase the Elvie Stride at select durable medical equipment (DME) companies. But there’s good news! We have them in our shop, and they’re covered by most insurance providers, including Tricare. If you’re considering getting yourself a pump, now’s a great time to treat yourself to a pump that will make holiday travel simpler.

If you’re not sure which breast pump is right for you, get in touch with your friends at Milk N Mamas Baby. We can help you choose a pump that maximizes both your comfort and your breastmilk production whether you’re at home, work, or on the go!

We are your Pennsylvania breast pump supplier

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Public Health, the percent of Pennsylvania mothers who started breastfeeding after birth increased more than 10% between 2009 and 2018. However, breastfeeding rates drop by nearly 25% eight weeks after birth. Two factors seem to drive this decision to quit breastfeeding. Moms feel like they’re not producing enough breastmilk to satisfy their hungry baby, and many moms are returning to work at that time. For most moms, both of these obstacles can be overcome with a high-quality breast pump.

How breast pumps help moms continue breastfeeding for longer

An electric breast pump allows you to build your milk supply by pumping during breastfeeding sessions and between sessions. You can also practice milk boosting practices like cluster pumping and double-pumping using a pump. Not only does pumping increase milk production by increasing the demand, it also provides you with a breastmilk stash that you can use when you go back to work. Even more exciting, pumps like the Elvie Stride can be worn to work in a standard nursing bra so you can pump while you’re at the office.

Milk N Mamas Baby is a durable medical equipment (DME) companies

Pumps like the Elvie Stride can only be purchased through select DME companies, but that’s no problem for you, mama. We have partnerships with all of your favorite breast pump providers, including Medela, Ameda, Spectra, Motif, BabyBuddha, and yes, Elvie.

We participate in most Pennsylvania health plans PLUS Tricare

Never fear, mama! We’ve got you covered here, too. We participate with most Pennsylvania health plans, including Geisinger and state Medicaid plans like UMPC, Aetna Better Health, and Gateway. We’re also authorized in-network breast pump providers for military moms and mil-spouses covered by Tricare.

You can use your FSA/HSA account at Milk N Mamas Baby

Since we are a medical equipment supplier, you can upgrade to premium pumps like the Elvie Pump or the Spectra S1 while you’re here. You can also use your FSA account to stock up on breast milk storage bags and replacement parts like tubing, valves membranes, collection bottles, nipple shields, and more.

Take a look around and see what we have to offer

The health benefits of nutrient-rich breastmilk follow your child for the rest of her life, offering her protection from allergies, obesity, and many preventable illnesses. The longer you pump, the greater the benefit. At Milk N Mamas Baby, we make it as easy as possible to get started pumping. We can help you get your prescription and deal with your insurance company. So take a look around while you’re here or better yet, give us a call at 844-Milk-Mom and let us know how we can support you in your pumping routine.

What is double pumping breastmilk and how do I do it?

What is double-pumping?

Double-pumping is exactly what it sounds like: using a breast pump that allows you to express milk from both breasts at the same time.

What are the benefits of double-pumping?

The most obvious benefit to double-pumping is the time savings. Rather than pumping one breast and then the other, you can pump both at once. Using a bra like the Medela Easy Expression™ bustier frees up your hands for other tasks, saving even more time. According to research conducted by Medela, double-pumping can save up to two hours per day compared to single-pumping.

In addition to saving time, double-pumping can boost the volume and nutritional value of your milk supply. Medela’s research showed that mothers who double-pumped produced on average 18% more milk volume than those who single-pumped each breast, and the milk from double-pumping had a higher energy content at 8.3% fat content compared with 7.3% fat content for single-pumping.

Double-pumping tips

  1. Stay relaxed. Stress inhibits the production of oxytocin, the key hormone for milk production, so try to maintain manageable expectations around breastfeeding and pumping. Worrying too much about milk production can actually harm milk production, so stay relaxed. We recommend meditation as a way to turn double-pumping sessions into a more calming experience.
  2. Massage your breasts before and after pumping. Speaking of relaxing, try using your fingertips to gently massage your breasts. You can lightly move from the top down to your nipples as well as in circular motions to loosen clogged ducts, soften firm areas, and encourage milk flow.
  3. Use a warm compress. Dampen a soft cloth with warm water and apply it to your breasts to further stimulate letdown and encourage milk flow.
  4. Adjust your breast pump to your own personal maximum comfort vacuum. Not too long ago, we wrote on the affect of suction intensity on milk supply. The main takeaway was the value in experimenting to find the optimal pump suction for your body. Finding that setting can lead to increased milk flow and higher cream content in your milk.
  5. Choose a strong, comfortable electric breast pump. Ideally, the pump you choose for double-pumping will have a strong suction and a comfortable fit as the combination of those two factors is critical to milk production.

Elvie Stride: the ultimate double-pumping time saver

Elvie, the woman-owned company that produces very cool femtech to make women’s lives easier, recently released their newest double breast pump The Stride. This lightweight, wearable pump fits into any standard nursing bra, and you can control it with a small remote. You can also pair The Stride with your smart phone using The Elvie Pump App, which allows you to track milk production and create setting preferences once you’ve found your personal maximum comfort vacuum. We love the Elvie Stride for double-pumping, and we think you will too.

Call or email us if you want more information on The Elvie Stride or double-pumping in particular. We’re always happy to hear from nursing moms.
