Since I became a mother, I really learned the value of friendship and companionship with other moms. Some of my closest friends today are women that I met through our breastfeeding group at our hospital. It was that same group of women and 3 lactation consultants that got me through one of the most difficult times in my life: Learning to breastfeed my first child.
I’m a huge breastfeeding supporter, so when I was given the opportunity by Playtex Baby to throw an event geared towards nursing for some of my mom friends, I couldn’t wait.
Unfortunately, what went from being a swank play date for mothers and children in my apartment quickly turned into an outdoor picnic in the courtyard. We’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for the weather to get nice, so when it did we quickly moved the party outdoors.
I set up the Playtex product display and we gathered to chat about parenting, nursing, and everything in between.
Playtex Drop-Ins were the bottles recommended to us by our nurses in the hospital, and the first ones we used with our son, Jack.
* Clinically shown to mimic breastfeeding
* Liner collapses like the breast for an air-free feeding
* Nipple promotes latch-on like the breast
* Clinically proven to reduce gas, colic, and spit-up
* Playtex is the #1 pediatrician recommended bottle brand*
Playtex provided wonderful prizes for all of the attendees including their Playtex® Drop-Ins® Premium Nurser Gift Set, a gift card to a top baby product retailer and more! There was also a prize pack on hand for one lucky giveaway winner, who just happens to be due in just a few weeks. I couldn’t have been happier to send her home with such a great set!
Some helpful information that I’m happy to pass along, care of Playtex:
Babies have a natural suck-swallow-breathe feeding rhythm, and the Playtex® Drop-Ins® Bottle System is clinically shown to deliver an experience that mimics breastfeeding. Babies who switched to Playtex® Drop-Ins® were shown to have fewer symptoms of colic, making the bottle feeding experience smoother and more comfortable for mom, dad and baby.
Gas, colic and spit-up are some of the most common feeding challenges that new moms face when feeding their babies. The Playtex® Drop-Ins® Bottle System has pre-sterilized, disposable, soft liners that collapse like the breast as the baby feeds. As the liner collapses it prevents a vacuum from forming in the bottle, which eliminates air from mixing with the milk, reducing gas, colic and spit-up.
