Whoever said muliti-tasking is a myth was not a breastfeeding mom with a Dairy Fairy Arden bra. This morning I was doing my make up, checking my e-mail and pumping at the same time.
I have tried on more nursing bras than I can count and was having trouble finding the right fit. Before the Arden, I had a few bras that I would wear regularly, but depending on how recently I had pumped I would often be spilling out of one side or the other. The Arden accommodates my asymmetries beautifully with its adjustable cup sizes.
The Arden is also very easy to use when breastfeeding. No wrestling a hungry baby while trying to get unclipped. Just pull to the side, and pull back up when your baby is done.
Being able to comfortably hands-free pump without changing my bra or strapping on a contraption means a more efficient me, more milk for Myri and finally more sleep! In fact, I’m pumping while I write this post.
I've always been small chested even after giving birth. I own nursing bras, but found that I'm able to use regular bras that don't have underwire support if I sized up. In fact I tend to wear regular bras more often to avoid the "uni-boob" effect I get from nursing bras. So I foolishly thought bras made specifically for pumping were just a "nice to have". That is, until I tried the Rose Hands Free Pumping Bra from Dairy Fairy.
Trying to meet demanding deadlines, attend meetings and still find time to pump is stressful. By the time I make it to the "Mother's Room", I'm stressed out and thinking about a million things which lately has been affecting my output. Seeing a scant amount of milk pumped heightens my stress level, further affecting my supply. It's a hard cycle to reverse, but it can be done! With Josie, I'm completely hands-free which allows me to work on my laptop while pumping. This is key. I no longer feel guilty or rushed for taking time to pump since I'm working. In fact, I tend to pump longer. Josie has become my new breast friend. The bra itself looks like a normal bra and has good support. My husband even commented that I looked sexy in it. Thank you Dairy Fairy for answering my pleas. Now if you could just make more colors :)
