NUK Freemie Cups

Do you remember a couple of weeks back I posted about the Nuk Simply Natural line? Well the folks over there wanted to make sure that my bases were covered by ensuring that my pumping needs were met. Yes, I pump too.

The other morning, I was pumping in the dining room... yeah, it's not the most private of places and I would love my own nursing room but we don't have that luxury. Also, I like to be available for household management questions from the crew, like "what should Wesley eat for breakfast?" 😂 So not being discreet has become a part of my routine. If I want to be able to give the baby a bottle, I've got to pump the milk out of my body. So anyways, I was pumping in the dining room and my oldest son says to me "Mama's a nice girl pumping." While this was super cute, it made me think I should find a better way to pump without my business being on blast. And then like magic, the Nuk Simply Natural Freemie Collection cups entered my life.

I'll give you the low down: It's easy to use and you can pump without your business out; you can pump with your shirt on so that means there's no hanging bottles. It works with a lot of popular pumps. I didn't have to worry, it hooked right up to my Medela Pump in Style (which I love and would recommend btw). It can collect up to 8 oz on each side, which is more than enough for me. Actually, if you can pump more than 16 oz in one sitting, you're my milk supply hero! Have large breasts? Me too. Don't worry, they fit and work just as good as they would on the smaller endowed. Like anything new, you have to get the hang of using the collection cups and moving your milk over to the bottle or freezer bags but if you practice with water first, you'll get the hang of it pretty quickly.

It's a pretty great idea, to be able to pump while your breasts are covered up and by design. There are some additional valves and tubing but it's worth the little bit of extra work to be able to pump without my child pointing it out to me. Also, this will be great for when my parents are visiting and I don't want everyone to be uncomfortable. There was a need and Nuk has met it. Nuk has these awesome Freemie Cups (available at Walmart and Target) as well as the aforementioned Nuk Simply Natural Line. These are totally easy to find, whether it's in their site or they're also available at Walmart and Target!
