Trying Lansinoh for the First Time.







Disclosure: I received free product in exchange for this review. 

You may remember, back a while ago, I announced that I had planned on breast feeding Millie.

Well, right after we had her, I tried, and tried at the hospital - And I just could not get it to work. I was having a hard time getting her to latch. Well - Come to find out, from Millie's pediatrician.. She's tongue tied. Her doctor said that, that could definitely be a reason she is unable to latch (for more then a few seconds.)

At first, I was pretty disappointed. I wanted to be able to give her that, because I know Breast is Best, and I wanted to make sure she had the best possible, when it came to her nutrition.

So during our hospital stay, we gave her formula, which was something I did not want to do - But as soon as we were released, I immediately went to my Lansinoh products, when we got home.

Honestly, everything revolving breast feeding, scared me. I've never known any one who has breast fed, or pumped, and I definitely didn't know anything about it, so I didn't really have any guidance, other then the Lansinoh website, my product boxes, and other articles that I happened to Google.

So as soon as we got home, I started reading, and exploring all of my different products, to help me get started.

Before you're actually able to pump, or try anything with your products - You feel completely clueless. But as soon as you have them in your hands, and you're actually able to try using them, it all really comes naturally, and it just makes sense.

I've tried several of my products, already, and they have helped me so much! Even though I'm not able to actually feed her from the breast, I am able to provide her with my milk, thanks to Lansinoh, and there amazing line of products!

Pretty soon, I'll also be featuring some actual product reviews, of my favorite products from Lansinoh - Including how they've helped me, and how a lot of there great products, actually tie together, for the best breast feeding experience.

I'll be using my products a little more, before featuring some of my reviews - But definitely stay tuned!

  2. Whoa... I'm sure glad I didn't have problems with my babies, but then again I didn't breast feed either and the only problem I had was my oldest son he was allergic to many formula, but finally we tried a non-allergenic formula and wah-lah!!! He turned in to one fat baby... hahahaha

  3. I was a formula feeding mom, so breastfeeding is something I know nothing about. I am happy to hear that you found a product that worked for you :)

  6. I love lansinoh products! I breastfed all of my four little ones and it was a lot harder than I expected or thought it would be. Kudos to you for sticking with it!

  7. I tried breast feeding all of my girls but none of them latched. It was so frustrating, but according to my doctor I needed to do formula because they weren't getting what they needed from me. Good luck to you!

  10. Breast milk is really the best for babies. It's good that you got Lasinoh to provide your milk for your baby. This will help her grow faster and healthier.

  11. Tongue tie can be fixed by clipping their frenulum. In my experience, reaching out to Le Leche League can help you so much. They are volunteers, and they are seriously experienced with breastfeeding. I had issues with my first baby, too and nursing. Lasinoh is a great product for painful nipples.

  12. Lansinoh products were a life saver when I was nursing my babies.
    They make it look so easy to breastfeed in the movies but doing it in real life is a much different story. I struggled trying to get my babies to latch properly and we had a ton of issues but it's totally worth it in the end. Kudos to you for not giving up!!

  17. Breast feeding is hard work! My son also has a tongue tie which made our breastfeeding relationship difficult at best. Keep up the good work, momma!

  19. My daughter in law is expecting my first grandchild in June, I'm definitely going to share this with her. Thanks.

  20. I love Lansinoh too!! I pumped after every feeding to boost my supply!! The storage bags were a godsend! Im surprised your lactation consultant didn't notice the tongue tie!! I suggest finding a bfing support group on fb or through your hospital! They are amazing!! I don't know how long you plan on pumping for or if you plan on getting her lip tie corrected but either way the groups can be a huge support!! We have exclusively pumping ladies in our boob group and I know they have their struggles too!!

  27. I'm expecting my first later on this year and planning on exclusively breastfeeding. I've been reading a lot of articles about first time moms having issues breastfeeding and it's been making me nervous. It's good to know that they make products that help.

  29. Le Leche League is a great organization. I have actually never heard of a baby being tongue ties, I hope it is something correctable. I dont know if affects speech or not, but check into it. My daughter is older than you, so breast feeding is just a memory. I didnt have any problems doing it , but no one though much about doing anything else if they were able to.
    Millie is adorable.

  30. I agree 100% that La Leche League is a wonderful organisation!
