SUPPORT for moms
LISTEN TO KATRINA DUNNING, RLC, IBCLC, LLLL
Although no mother should ever feel pressured to breastfeed or suffer under the misconception that breastfeeding is the only way to raise a happy, healthy child, breastfeeding is a great option for many families. I became a La Leche League Leader over 20 years ago because of the incredible support I received while raising my sons abroad. My husband was stationed in Japan when I had my oldest son and I relied on the local La Leche Leader for help, information and support to succeed in my breastfeeding goals. I eventually became a leader at four military bases and now in Kitsap County, Washington. There is no more rewarding work for me than helping a mother decide what works best for her and her baby and then empowering her to succeed. Breastfeeding offers lasting benefits for mothers and their children, but that is not to say it easy or without ongoing challenges.
Why I'm excited about Ceres Chill
Women trying to breastfeed often face significant challenges to continuing when they return to work or when other obligations take them away from their children.
As someone who has worked her whole life in healthcare, lactation consulting and nutrition for infants with special needs, I have no doubt that Ceres Chill will provide meaningful support for moms right when they need it most.
Having the ability to directly pump up to 12 oz of milk into a clean, secure container and store it at a safe temperature for over 20 hours and then easily transport that milk back to the child or refrigeration is a game-changer. Not to mention the added element of allowing a caregiver or exclusively pumping mom to easily take that milk out for the day and then serve it to the child with the built-in bottle. The fact that it is being manufactured with World Health Organization approved materials and is dishwasher safe makes it an exceptional product that I am happy to recommend to my clients.
