For those of you who loved my post about the NUK Simply Natural bottles and how they are helping us with our separation anxiety issues, you’ll love this post as well! I was able to try out the NUK Freemie Cups and I am in love!
As a busy mom of three daughters, I feel like I am always on the go, and my hand are always busy!
Normally when I’m pumping, I’m holding the suction cups on myself with both hands. I’ve tried those bras that hold the suction cups, and friends, they just aren’t my style! For me, it took longer to get that darn thing on and set up than it did to actually pump. So it just seemed simpler for me to hold the suction cups while I was pumping.
Keep in mind, I don’t pump multiple times everyday, and it’s rare when I do pump, but even at that, sitting there holding the cups are not very fun. I would usually have to stop in the middle to help the baby, or the big girls, or do something.
I think because of that, it made my pumping experience not as enjoyable as it could have been. I only pumped when I had to because we were going on a date and going to be away from Joey for a few hours. Other than that, it just seemed like too much work for me to pump. It was so much easier to just let Joey nurse like normal, but that’s also where the separation anxiety came in.
So when I tried the NUK Simply Natural bottles, and they worked so good for her, I thought maybe I could make it work to try pumping more often!
Hands Free Pumping with NUK Freemie Cups
Say hello to the NUK Freemie Cups! And say hello to hands free pumping! YESS!
These cups attach to most pumps, and they worked great on my Medela. I just attached the tubing into the cups and it was that easy!
I use these while wearing a sports bra so they fit easier. You just slide them in, make sure you are ‘set’, and pump!
These freemie cups have allowed me to be able to be pumping while sitting in the living room and not worrying about being in my bedroom to be private, because they just go right under my shirt.
The best thing about them? I have my hands free! I am able to move and help the girls if they need something anything.
