Blogging opened me to this word – advocacy.Before discovering the online world and bloggers passionate with their own causes, I was drifting in my small, offline world, with my mini-advocacies – health, education, etc.
Until I realized that I lectured practically every pregnant women I see anywhere (it does not matter whether I know them or not) on the benefits of breastfeeding.
And that was when I realized one of my personal advocacies is breastfeeding.
I breastfed my youngest, Adrian, for five years.While working full time.
I store them in 4 oz. Avent bottles or thick plastic bags and freeze them.
Products like the one I will be talking about gives them no excuse to give up breastfeeding, even while they work or away
In 2011, the same guy who brought Lansinoh Storage Bags and made breastfeeding moms’ lives easier – Nossi Taheri – introduced major innovations on his original recloseable breastmilk bag design and created HoneySuckle®.
She’s the daughter of my nineteen-year old niece who lives a floor below us. The drama on how Haille came about would becovered in a separate post on teenage pregnancy. Suffice to say that I insisted that she must breastfeed her baby, and she did.
She has to leave Haille with her mom.
A lot of times when the mom is away, I hear Haille crying because the expressed breastmilk she left is not enough.
Armed with the HoneySuckle® Breastmilk Storage Bags Crescom Biomedics sent me, Haille’s mom started storing her expressed breastmilk.
And Haille is one “busog” baby even when her mom is not around.
- They store flat and take up less freezer
space (back when I was breastfeeding and working at the same time, I had to use
a separate refrigerator and freezer for my stash of breastmilk in bottles.
- They are designed with a pour spout,
eliminating spills (and you know how precious each drop of breastmilk is!)
- They have dual zippers making them truly,
really sealed, protecting the milk inside.
- They have a write-on tab so you can record
the date and time when you expressed the milk
- The bags are self-standing you won’t accidentally pour everything out.
|O, Ha!!!It stands on its own!|
And the best part, they are the strongest, most economical breastmilk bag available.
Bakit ngayon ka lang???
These bags were not around when I breastfed my youngest for five years…
