Tried & Tested: Pigeon’s Breast Pump & Feeding Set

Posted on

Breastfeeding. a phase every mom goes through, but nobody said it was easy.

Both my mom and mother-in-law (MIL) didn’t breastfeed. Both of them was traumatized and that using manual pump (which was the only thing available then) didn’t really helped them express milk.

I have undergone all the bumps in breastfeeding — Mastitis , Breast engorgement , nipple sore, nipple crack, and so on, you name it. No matter how prepared I was reading books and researching (while I was still pregnant), it’s just not the same when you actually experience it.

I promised myself even before I was pregnant that I would breastfeed. So when I gave birth I immediately practiced breastfeeding, the colostrum letdown was easy but then the first milk letdown was another story. My ob-gyne Dra. Rebecca Singson is pro-breastfeeding and she believes that every woman can produce milk, it only takes encouraging, support from family or friends and the right tools.

Right. Right tools. So this got me to try a breast pump that would suit me and so I found Pigeon electric breast pump.

It’s compact and easy to use, perfect for first-time moms like me. It’s complete with a 4 oz. bottle, nipple, bottle stand, breast pump motor and battery compartment, gasket & breast sheild, nipple stimulator, and motor flushing tube.

Pros: lightweight, compact, battery operated, adaptor operated

Cons: it doesn’t come with an adaptor, manual press & release suction

I’ve also noticed that with the use of an electric breast pump, it stimulates the nipples, helping moms who have inverted nipple alternate direct breast feeding with expressing milk.

For moms and moms-to-be I think Pigeon has one compact and easy to use electric breast pump.

Over-all this ain’t bad for a price of P2,200 you can’t go wrong with it.

  2. Good to hear that you are breastfeeding 🙂 Breastfed infants are usually smarter than formula-fed ones 🙂

Your so right breastfeeding is no easy part of being a mommy…..specially for a first time mom like you….i had breastfed my first son for like only 4 months coz i had to go back to college (since i am a proud teenage mom back then 😉 ) but i really wanted to breastfeed him for at least 6 months….anyhow, now that i have my second born and he’s 7 months already i still breastfeed him yay! even if im workin 8 hrs i make sure i pump in d office (3x in 8 hrs) to keep my breastmilk….i do manual pumping thank you very much! hehe….it’s such a great great reward since my baby’s tummy never gets upset easily and he is such a chubby lil munchkin so it’s really good that you are a pro breastfeeding mom…..cheers to us!
