Breastfeeding is something I knew I would be doing. As daunting as it was, this was one sure thing I would be doing. I vowed though, that I would try my best – and if it wasn’t enough – then so be it. I had a harder time with Connor compared to when I was breastfeeding Kailee. I think boys demanded more milk compared to girls, and so I couldn’t keep up. But I tried my very best for 2 years. Can you believe that? I would seriously pump everywhere – and when you are pumping and saving milk, one of the things that you’ll need are breastmilk bags.
I remember ordering at Amazon, boxes and boxes of Lansinoh breastmilk bags. When friend and relatives came home, they would bring me my orders – this was the cheaper alternative. But since the dollar exchange rate has been going up – this was not becoming economical.
I’m so glad to have been invited to see the launch of Orange and Peach products. Quite impressed that it’s a local company that decided to sell breastfeeding essentials. Price point is really good as it’s quite affordable. The best thing about it is that they ship nationwide. So you can just imagine the speed and efficiency. No need to hoard anymore – just check your stash from time to time.
The product I love the most now, since I’m using them are the breast milk storage bags. The plastic is thick and clear. The size is perfect. There’s a double zip to prevent leaks! It’s pre-sterilized and it can stand on its own and it’s the same size as the brand I was using years ago. I love it because it’s so easy to use! Another reason why I like it so much is that when you freeze it flat, the size is even, there is no side that is smaller than the other, so you can stack them up when you store them. Another interesting product – silicone bibs WITH Pinoy inspired designs. It’s really cute that they collaborated with a local artist to depict Pinoy culture. I won one and I picked the iconic lechon!
