Freemie introduce a new way of handsfree pump. Being an EPM mummy, handsfree pump is almost a gem of all the creation in the world. It saves time and enable me to multitask. If you are a FTW BF mummy, you know what I am talking!
I have been using Medela Freestyle since Jan 2012 till today, and still counting. A very happy and contented user till I changed job this year where I need to travel 2 hours to and fro work everyday. My colleague then told me how she save time is, she pumped in the car while stuck in the jam. Brilliant? I tried, but my meddle freestyle just a little bit too hard for me to pump “invisible” because once I fixed my pump on handsfree mode, it will looking a horizontal KLCC tower stuck out on my breast.
Medela Freestyle – Handsfree pump
My journey with Freemie started when one the mummy show casing how she pump with her shirt on and looking almost invisible. It enable her to pump everywhere and anywhere without anyone realising. Well, some of my reader asked, why bother? As an Asian mum, we live in a culture where people are more conservative. Plus, if you have came to Malaysia for a tour, you will realise that Malaysia has just started to be a breastfeeding friendly place starting this year, 2014.
