There's A New Device That Gives Moms A Lactation Massage To Ease Breastfeeding PainIt's a handy and helpful gadget that can give breastfeeding moms comfort while nursing.by Kitty Elicay .
Breastfeeding is one of the best gifts a mom can give to her newborn, but it can be demanding physically, emotionally, and mentally. So, it’s vital that she gets support from those around her to achieve breastfeeding success.
If you have any breastfeeding mothers in your life, this gadget that can mimic a lactation massage can be the perfect tool that will give them comfort while nursing. It’s called the LaVie Warming Lactation Massage Pads, the first milk expression tool “that combines continuous warmth and vibration to improve milk flow and relieve pain.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Breastfeeding parents often face many struggles like engorgement, clogged milk ducts, mastitis, and low milk supply. In a previous article by SmartParenting.com.ph, Sylvia Malabanan of L.A.T.C.H. Philippines, a non-profit breastfeeding advocacy group, said that a lactation massage, when done properly, can benefit nursing moms. She shares, “[A] breast massage can be beneficial in increasing the amount of milk expressed by hand or by breast pump, and for helping remove blockages in milk ducts.”ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
The LaVie lactation massager says it can help ease these problems. Moms simply place the pads against their chest to massage and warm their breasts while pumping and the device can help them empty milk more effectively, cut pumping time, and improve flow and letdown.
The LaVie massage pads are designed to comfortably fit any breast size and shape. It has two heat settings and can be used with or without vibration, or with vibration and no heat. It also uses rechargeable batteries so you can use it anywhere, anytime. It even has a waterproof version!ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
The massage pads retail for $79.95. Some local online shops in the Philippines like Milk and Honey PH and Mama’s Hub PH sell it for Php4,499, but it is currently out of stock. If you’re interested to get your hands on this device, you can order it directly from their website.
The device is a dream tool to ease breastfeeding pain, but it is also quite difficult to get. Alternately, you can also get a lactation massage from Arugaan experts. Their home visits include counseling and instruction so nursing moms can eventually do the massage by themselves.
