After a few tries... to find out exactly what setting suits me, I got all excited!


Each week we ask a Real Mom if they would like the NurtureGoods experience. These moms use a breast pump from NurtureGoods in order to describe and share their experiences. In this way, we hope to raise awareness of the NurtureGoods experience and help you make a choice. This week it's mom Nadine's turn Do you read along?

I'm Nadine, mom to Sam (5) and Elisa (0).

5 Months ago I started a new adventure, 1st time breastfeeding! Where with our son Sam that opportunity was taken away due to the fierce spirited start, I now took on the challenge again.

It might be difficult, she told me in the hospital. A C-section and birth at 36 weeks.... That's usually a combination for a difficult start as far as breastfeeding is concerned. Pumping after a premature birth, but I went for it! 

All this was miraculously no problem at all! The feeding came on! In the hospital several times pumping because Elisa was too weak to drink by herself due to the premature birth. Feisty! Hard work, but still persevered! After a few weeks she managed to drink on her own and I didn't have to pump all day anymore.

But then our girl decided to sleep through at 7 weeks! To keep the breastfeeding going well, pumping again anyway!

I saw the breast pump from NurtureGoods and was mega curious! A wireless breast pump how nice! That sounded like music to my ears! And also double sided! Win, win so! I got to test the Smart 3.0 breast pump from NurtureGoods.

After a few tries... to find out exactly which setting suits me, I became totally enthusiastic! It's really nice to be able to pump on the couch, in bed, in front of the TV, behind the laptop, you name it. With a magazine and a tea or coffee... 15 minutes and a bottle of milk extra! The freezer is already getting full! Super handy for extra feedings or for when mom has to go away for a while.  

In short, a superfine pump, not at all inferior to an A-brand. It has multiple settings, nice soft breast shields and a big advantage: it is cordless! Not too many separate parts so easy to clean, top! When charged, the pump lasts a long time! I have pumped 7 times now and it is still not empty.

It comes with a teat so you can screw it onto the bottle right after pumping and use it as a bottle to give the pumped food to your little one! Super convenient. A word about the look of the pump. Check out the color, super nice to leave in plain sight. You don't have to store this pump.

I am very happy that I started this adventure and that this adventure is now made even more convenient by the fine pump from NurtureGoods! This is how we nurse together with love!
