SPECTRA UAE - OUR STORY
I am Dana, mom of two little girls, I am always in a search of new items that would make motherhood a smoother ride.
Today, time is a luxury, so I wanted to make the most of it. When it comes to feeding my baby, I knew that the choice is not just breastfeeding or formula feeding. There is an in-between choice that is sometimes overlooked – breast pumping. Therefore, I was an exclusive pumper by choice with my first baby and I used a pump that was considered by many, top of the range. It was ok, but not good enough to determine me not to search for a better product when I was getting things ready to welcome my second baby into the world. That is how I came across the Spectra breast pumps. The reviews from other moms that used the pump convinced me to give it a try. And I was so impressed with the Spectra S1 Plus that I decided to make this great product accessible to the nursing mothers in UAE.
What is so different about this pump? Well, I can tell you that the pumping time to empty my breasts came down to 10-15 minutes, instead of 15-20 minutes as before. I no longer had pain during expression, nor sore nipples.
My milk supply was never in a challenge while using Spectra, I always had extra milk in my fridge and freezer, as suppose with the other pump that I faced times when I was eating fenugreek seeds and drinking all sorts of teas that supposed to boost my milk supply. And all this by pumping 4 to 5 times a day. Before I was forced to pump 6 to 8 times and still struggle with my milk stash.
If your baby prefers a certain brand of milk bottle, I have good news, you can fit bottles from other brands, directly or using a bottle adapter.
The Spectra breast pumps have a close system, which means that they have a barrier between the milk collection kit and the pump mechanism to prevent contamination by bacteria / mould / viruses. So you can be sure your baby is safe, as well it is safe to resell it or let other moms use it. My previous pump had an open system, if I had known the difference back then, I would have chosen differently for sure.
All parts that come in contact with the milk are BPA free.
