I recently had the opportunity to try out Mommy Soothers by Jade’s Arrival and was so pleasantly surprised in the process. They are one size fits all, easy to use and proved to be very beneficial for breastfeeding mothers.
Mommy Soothers are breast heat and cooling packs that lay over your breast. They can be left in the freezer for cooling relief or microwaved for heat therapy. They have an all natural, flaxseed filing and can help with clogged ducts, mastitis, engorgement or simply cutting down on time hooked to the pump.
I have had more clogged ducts than I can count and mastitis four times. Breastfeeding has not been an easy journey for me, so anything that can make this journey an easier one is a must have.
For clogs and mastitis I have been told time and time again that a heating pad while pumping, or that a heating pad before a nursing session is a great way to help get the milk moving, and have a faster let down. This will empty your breasts faster and help prevent and get rid of clogged ducts.
On the opposite spectrum, cooling relief is vital when you are dealing with sore breasts or engorgement. Simply throw these in the freezer for a few hours and enjoy the relief you will receive when you pull them out of the freezer.
Mommy Soothers has thought of everything when creating this amazing product. No matter what type of relief you are looking for, you can find it with these! They are size adjustable with an easy velcro strap that you can adjust to your liking.
I decided to try these out while doing a pump session. I simply heated them up, laid them on my breasts and attached to the pump. I was able to to pump in less time and saw that my let down was indeed faster than normal. Using the Mommy Soothers as well as hands on pumping (massaging breasts before and during a pump session) helped me get more milk in less time.
This product is absolutely one that I would suggest to breastfeeding and expectant moms. It is a must have item for the hospital bag, first days home and long into your breastfeeding journey.
