So yesterday, on Facebook and TikTok, I shared my breastfeeding must-have haul from Orange and Peach PH. I already started shopping and since it’s Lazada’s 5.5 Sale today, I thought it might be interesting for you, especially if you are expecting parents, to read this. So first off, before I give you a more in depth explanation about each product, let me share the short video of the things that I got from Orange and Peach PH for breastfeeding.
Orange and Peach PH Improved Natural Nipple Balm
When I gave birth to my first child, I knew that I was prepared to breastfeed. I attended classes and I read a lot about breastfeeding. But when the first few days came and I tried breastfeeding Zeeka, I had sore nipples! My nipples bled, so after four days, I had to call a lactation consultant to help me out. After she taught me, Zeeka latched on and sucked masterfully. But, I had to protect my nipples with balm or cream.
So I am already purchasing this early on. This particular Orange and Peach PH balm is made from Virgin Coconut Oil. It’s Lanolin-free and made from natural ingredients. It comes with a spatula so that you can hygienically apply it to your nipples after each feeding.
Orange and Peach PH Milk Saver Pump
I love this manual pump since it’s small and portable. I tried bring my electric pump into the hospital when I gave birth to Zeeka, but I wasn’t allowed. You can only bring manual pumps like these. So to use this Milk Saver Pump, here are the steps:
- Place the breast pump directly over your breast and make sure that your nipple is comfortable inside the flange.
- Squeeze the base of the pump 2-3x to create that suction effect.
- Sit back, relax and watch the pump collect all your precious milk.
- If no milk comes out after a couple of minutes (2 mins), release the pump, reposition and attach again. Make sure that there is no gap between the flange and your breast to ensure efficient suction.
This pump is BPA free and Phthalates free. It’s made out off 100% food Grade Silicone.
Personally, what I do is that I use it to pump on the other breast while my baby is latching on to the other breast. And I also use it in between feedings to make my body think that my baby needs more. I try to create more supply by increasing demand. Ain’t economics great?
Orange and Peach PH Milk Saver Breast Shells
I’ve heard that some moms didn’t really find use for this, but in my case, it was a life saver especially during the times when I had sore and cracked nipples. Since you know that you will be leaking milk, you usually place pads. During the time though that I had sore/cracked nipples, when my nipples would stick to the pads, it would hurt. I used this so that nothing touches my nipples since the plastic elevates and protects your nipples. Plus you get to collect breast milk.
I would also use it during feeding to catch the milk from the other breast. There are times, like early mornings, when I’m tired to pump the other side. I would just collect milk using this then have the baby latch on to that side once s/he is done with the first breast.
Orange and Peach PH Breastmilk Storage bags and Breastmilk Storage Bottles
We all know that breastmilk is liquid gold and we’ll do anything to store it safely. Seriously, the first time that I expressed milk and spilled some, I cried. So storing breastmilk safely is very important.
When I have extra milk to store, I place it inside bags and keep it frozen. Frozen breastmilk lasts 3-6 months. Then for the milk that I know that I would use in a few hours, I keep it refrigerated using the bottle. Refrigerated breastmilk last for 48 hours and previously frozen milk stored in the refrigerator will last 24 hours. Same (24 hours) with breastmilk that you transport via cooler. For freshly expressed milk kept at room temperature, it only lasts for 4 hours.
We were very particular with this so that baby doesn’t drink spoiled milk. We’ve noticed that the baby gets gassy, too.
