The Affordable Care Act states, every mother will be given a free breast pump by their insurance company

The Affordable Care Act states, every mother will be given a free breast pump by their insurance company. All mothers are offered a breast pump. There are a variety of different pumps and they all work anywhere from just okay to awesome.

Boston Newborn Care has partnered with Healthy Baby Essentials and will personally provide the order form and hand deliver the pump to clients. No need to call insurance companies, Healthy Baby Essentials will process the rental quickly and painlessly.

The first breast pump with 2-Phase Expression® technology which is proven to achieve faster milk ejection and faster milk flow.* More efficient and comfortable. Unique overflow protection. Double or single pumping. One knob control. Whisper quiet operation. Easy-to-clean. Compatible with Preemie+ technology (Preemie+ Card sold separately).

Featuring the original 2-Phase Expression® technology – found only in Medela breast pumps.

Babies breastfeed in 2 phases:
1. Stimulation Phase – when babies first go to breast, they suck fast and light to start milk flowing.

2. Expression Phase – after milk flow or “let-down” starts, babies breastfeed with a slower, deeper suck, bringing out more milk faster.

Boston Newborn Care is experienced in stetting it up and coaching through the whole process. We’ll give you a schedule and help you with snacks to eat and what to avoid. We provide a tried and true storage tips and tricks and help moms continue to increase their supply to meet the growing babies needs.

With the 100s of clients I have counseled and supported I first listen then I offer a suggestion. Have you considered renting the hospital grade pump. The Medela Symphony perhaps? From my experience the hospital grade pump will yield up to 30% more milk at each pumping session.

So many new moms these days agonize over the whole breastfeeding experience. It begins way before the baby is even born. Whenever I ask a new client if they are going to breastfeed, 100% of the time the answer is “I’m going to try”

So those early days and nights with new moms are always stressful. The latch and the moms’ milk supply is the only thing talked about followed by the questions. “Is the baby hungry?” “ Should I try a different hold? Do I need a different pillow?“ Should I sit in another chair?” It’s an ongoing list of possible reasons why it isn’t going great. Do I need a nipple shield? Will there be nipple confusion? Does my baby have a tongue tie? Tears and frustration are the emotion instead of happiness and contentment.

Finally, it starts to come together. Then after 2 weeks the mom is ready to pump. Adding another task to their day, throughout the day is daunting. It’s far more frustrating when they do hook up to the breast pump the yield is minimal.

Our First Baby | Our First Day Home Together.

Our First Baby | Our First Day Home Together. 9 months of planning, reading, on-line, baby classes, delivery and that first car ride together. None of this planning had prepared us for our first day home alone.

We arrived safely and daughter and mother fell asleep on our bed.

We have a large extended family, all visited our new daughter at the Hospital. Upon arrival at home the phone started ringing and within a few hours we had, Grand Mothers both sides, Mothers and Fathers both sides, Aunts and Uncles who all decided they should come and help us out. They brought food and gifts and wanted to hold the Baby.

I felt like our daughter was being passed around like a sack of Potatoes from one relative to another.

The advise started from the woman for my wife, breast feeding the Grand Mothers, not so sure about that. Breast pumps how to use them, make sure your breasts are stimulated before you try breast feeding. One relative compared this event to how cows are milked. You have to stimulate your breasts. Okay my wife, her breasts are engorged with with milk and any conversation on this topics resulted in her milk coming down.

The men in our Family, a lot of suggestions for me as the new Father. You have heard it all, this is a big responsibility financially, have you started a college fund, was one? Please. Are you planning any more children? Well to be honest this was a surprise baby. Not a bad thing. Planning another, we just got home.

My wife had planned to take 9 weeks off work. One of our relatives is a therapist. Oh you need more time off work. The first two years of your child’s life needs to be with the mother. This sets the foundation for your child’s growth and social development. Separation from mother will cause stress for the Baby once you go back to work. We have that covered we have a Nanny.

The idea of us having a Nanny care for our Daughter threw the entire family into a fit. You are going to leave your Daughter with a stranger? Please don’t get me wrong, we love our entire Family and for them this was a Family event filled with love and kindness. It was time for them to leave, early evening, the three of us are exhausted.

Now we are ready for that first night alone?

Our First Baby | The Ride Home From The Hospital

Time passes and my wife is back in her room and the time has come for Father to take our Daughter from the delivery room to be with mom. The next day it was time for the three of us to head home.

Many thanks to all the nurses and staff, my wife is doing remarkable after having a cesarean section, sore and tired she rides the wheel chair with baby in arms as we leave the hospital.

Our First Baby | The Ride Home From The Hospital was like most events for new parents another experience no matter how well you have prepared for it, you are ready perhaps not prepared for dealing with the bay car seat.

I had practiced dealing with this baby car seat, making sure it was facing the right direction, was it attached correctly, check the seat belt 3 times. All this training and practice, okay for sure this is different now having to place the new love of your life in a car seat. Done we are off.

With Mom and Daughter safely secured in the back seat of our car we headed the 11 miles to our home. Funny how having a baby in your car changes your driving habits, a little slower, looking out for on coming cars, and yes my lovely wife offering a lot of back seat driving suggestions.

Our daughter within a few minutes is sound asleep. I read that taking your Newborn for a ride might help with sleep. Silence mother is drifting off.

The ride home was without events, upon arrival fight with the baby seat, help mother and daughter into our home. Me, back to car and unload all that stuff we took to the hospital we never used.

Unpack everything and find mother and daughter cuddled up on our bed sound asleep. An exhausting event for all.

Our First Baby | The Delivery Room

Our First Baby | The Delivery Room, My wife had a pleasant pregnancy, some morning sickness at first which passed. As the months moved along and her hormones changes, my wife became this very happy and forgetful, soon to be mother. Left a few ATM cards in the ATM machine, other then that it was with great join I watched my wife’s stomach grow and we spent nights together sitting watching our baby move around.

We had taken all the classes for delivery, breathing, videos and many nights on-line seeking comfort for that all important day of when the Water Broke and the Mad Dash to the Hospital.

The car had been packed for what seemed like weeks with all the STUFF we had to take to the Hospital. Then contractions started late on a Saturday night. Called all the numbers we had pre programmed in our Cell Phone and it was time we were told, head to the Hospital.

Upon our arrival at the hospital we met our Doctor, all the happy nurses in the delivery room. Only to find out after the initial examination, contractions, it was determined my wife had some time to go before delivery.

24 hours later still in the delivery ward of the Hospital our Doctor came in and informed us that our Daughters had turned downward, all good. NOT, as our Doctor explained your Daughter has a large head and your wife has narrow hips. Okay. Meaning that delivery would be by cesarean section.

Within 20 minutes we are in Surgery. The keyword here is we are in Surgery, meaning ME as well as all the Doctors, Nurses, and staff for this event. Sitting at my wife’s I head I occasionally peeked over the drape covering my wife’s from the neck down to see what was going on. This delivery from my point of view was fast. Suddenly our Daughter appears and is handed to a nurse. Okay purple color, and covered with like a cheese coating all over.

The Nurse took our Daughter over to a table in the delivery room and began a series of tests and began cleaning up our Daughter. All the time I am watching the Surgeon finish the surgery. Then the Nurse walked over with our Daughter all wrapped up in a warm blanket and handed her to me.

“Come on the Nurse said” lets go, follow me. Panic, how was I to hold my daughter, what if I tripped or drop her. We made it to a room where our Daughter was placed under like a warming light. Within no time her color went to that pretty pink all babies have. Then the smell of her, was like nothing I had experienced before. That Baby smell.

Time passes and my Wife is back in her room and the time has come for Father to take our Daughter to be with mom.
