Colief Infant Drops. Like many other babies out there, my daughter suffered from colic. At the time, I was not exactly aware of what colic was. I was a new mom and I had no experience with colic, so I turned to my daughters pediatrician to learn more about colic. I learned that colic can be caused by access gas in babies tummy. Colic is when you have a baby who cries for at least 3 hours a day, for at least 3 days a week for at least 3 weeks. With my daughter, her colic was caused by the access gas in her tummy that was caused by the extra air she would suck in from the bottle during her feedings. For a baby, they cant tell you what is wrong with them and as a parent it is our job to try and make baby comfortable and try to understand what baby needs in order to be comfortable. That is where Colief comes in. Colief gives parents, families and caregivers that special bonding time back that might be interrupted by colic. Colief helps relieve the symptoms of colic, which provides a relief for everyone, which in hand gives you the chance to take in that special bonding time that we all look forward to when there is a new baby!!
mOmma Bottle. Not only is it a new bottle from Lansinoh, but it is also a very unique and interesting looking bottle. With my two eldest kids, I used the Lansinoh line of products when I was breast feeding, and I love that the new bottle design from Lansinoh is designed to keep the breast feeding effect going even when you have to use a bottle to feed. I know that with my daughter, I was working full time and I was a full time student when I had her, so I only really had time to pump. Due to me pumping most of the time, I had to rely on bottles in order for my daughter to be fed. One thing about using bottles and also trying to breast feed when I was home, was that it made the breast feeding experience for me a lot harder. I ended up stopping the pumping after a few months due to the fact that not only was it hard to get my daughter to latch on after she had been bottle feeding most of the time, but I also ended up getting engorged a lot due to my schedule. With my son, I was able to really get the most out of the breast feeding experience and really get the chance to bond with my son through the experience. So, when I see bottles that are made to support breast feeding, I find myself wanting to learn more about them, to find out if they really do support the breast feeding process. I love how with the mOmma bottle, the bottle shape and the form of the nipple, together mimic the shape of both the breast and your nipple which in hand makes it easier for baby to go back to the breast even when you are away. The other product from the Lansinoh line was one that a lot of us are familiar with, especially if you have pumped. I was sent a box of the Breast Milk Storage Bags, which really comes in handy for those days that you will be busy, away from home or working. Personally, even if you are a stay at home mom, having frozen breast milk on hand can really come in handy, so that others may feed and bond with baby and give you a chance to get things done or get some me time in!!!
