THings I Love Thursday- Evenflo Comfort Select Breast Pump (and a GIVEAWAY!!)

tilt We’re talking boobies today people. So the gentlemen readers might want to avert their eyes. Cause we are just talking about them, there will be no actual showing of boobies. See how quickly that gets rid of the men. Let me start out by saying I am super pro breast feeding. I am not the crunchiest of people, but I do believe the breast is best and breast fed both my girls. Lily very successfully and Hannah with mild success. But in either case at some point you have to make friends with a pump.

Whether it be when you go back to work or simply so you can actually have a date with your hubby in clothes that don’t have spit up on them, pumping can be a great way to continue to give your baby breast milk when you can’t be with them. In fact often times pumping is essential to help you breastfeed more successfully by helping to increase your milk supply.

With the other two babies I had a Medela that a friend had loaned me (which I know is supposedly a no-no, but seriously, those babies are expensive). It is a great pump don’t get me wrong, but it was a bit much for me who just wanted to make a bottle or two on occasion. And I found all the tubes and stuff unwieldy. So I was really excited when I was asked to try out the new Evenflo Comfort Select breast pump. It has all sorts of features that I love and seems super easy to use.

Obviously I haven’t “technically” used it. That would be crazy unpleasant. But I have assembled it and played with it a bit and it is great. First off, it scores super high points for being BPA free. Secondly, I love that it has a “nipple adapter” to ensure a comfortable fit. That was incredibly awkward to say, but anyone who has pumped knows of which I speak. It also has two pumps which saves a whole lotta time and energy.

Mom Central was kind enough to give me an extra pump as well as two boxes of nursing pads to give away to a lucky reader. All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment. So simple. Want a second entry? Participate in my weekly carnival, Things I Love Thursday. The guidelines can be found here. The last 3 winners of a Thursday contest have won because of their extra entry. To get it you must link to your post in Mr. Linky AND leave an extra comment telling me you did so. Got it? Two comments. I will draw a winner using comments so that is the only way to get two entries.

On top of that Mom Central is giving away 3 more breast pumps. To enter for those, head on over to their website and leave a comment sharing a pumping tip with the other moms. Seriously, you should spend some time there either way, there are some great tips. Their contest ends Monday May 4, mine ends the evening of Wednesday May 6. Four chances to win. Is this a great contest or what???

    This girl NEEDS a pump!

  10. I couldn’t live without my pump when my kiddos were born. I had some crazy issues with breastfeeding, but still wanted the kids to have my milk, so I pumped for 3 months. I borrowed one, too…it was just cheaper that way!

    I’m also due in 6 weeks with my first! How funny. Unfortunately this little one doesn’t seem to want to wait. I would love to not go the full 40 weeks (because I’m selfish and uncomfortable!), but I certainly don’t want this baby to come now!

  21. What a great giveaway!

    Oooh, I miss breastfeeding! Looking forward to another baby soon. Thanks!

  24. I, too, borrowed a breast pump from a friend. However, when we are in the hospital they gave us our own box of the stuff that would have needed to be sterilized, so I only needed the Medela pump and the tubes. They are so expensive that we wouldn’t have been able to afford one of our own at the time!

  32. So I don’t need the pump since I already have one, I just had to say your post caused me to leak all over the darn place! Now I’m off to change…..

  33. We are having our 2nd in December and I would LOVE an upgrade from my previous pump!

  35. I linked up for the first time – nothing like a breast-pump giveaway to get my attention! :-)

    Jenis last blog post..WFMW: Washing Baby Socks

  36. I would so, so love to win this! I’m expecting my third at the end of August…wasn’t expecting to have a third and got rid of my old pump after weaning my 2nd child!

  37. This would be so nice with the next kid. I just can’t find a pump that works the way I want!

  38. I need this badly. I have a 2 1/2 week old and I am hating my current breastpump. Mainly because it is a pain to put together every time I want to pump and it isn’t all that comfortable either.

  39. Would LOVE to have this, im due in July!!

  40. I love your blog :) It’s so fun!

  41. Oh man, this pump looks great, and am in need of a new pump since the one I borrowed my first time around will be back in use by its owner! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  42. What an awesome give-away. My breast pumping days are over, but my sister is having her first baby in June.

  43. Ok, I have a 13 year old(TODAY!!!)and my youngest is 8. I have no need of a breast pump. I assure you people that if by some slim chance I win it, it will be finding a home with needy new mom.
    This post did bring back many memories, though. Oh, those sweet baby days.
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    Thank you for this article and chance to win. I am very pro breastfeeding and due with my first baby in November. I think a pump is a must but I am completely baffled as where to even start my research. And BPA free? Yay!!!

  47. I’m entering, even though I already have a breast pump, cause if I win I’ll give the new pump away to our local crisis pregnancy center :)

  54. Jille says:

    Even though it’s been over a year since I stopped pumping, I can still hear the distinct sound of ‘the pump.’

  55. Annie M says:

    Son number one is 6.5 years old. He was breastfed and I, too, borrowed a pump from a friend. He had to have surgery at 1 month old and I couldn’t nurse him for over 24 hours and when I could, I had to start at 5 minutes one side only! Thank God for pumps! LOL!

    Son number two is due early August and it’d be great to have a pump of my own! They are so dog gone expensive!

  56. I’m pregnant with #2 and nursing wasn’t very successful with daughter number #1 due to many issues. I’m excited to try it again! Thanks for the contest!

  57. ashley says:

    I am 5 and a half weeks from having my first! I would love to get this FREE!! but if not it’s good to see that it doesn’t cost hundreds of $$. thanks!! :)

  58. I would love a new pump for my next little one- the one I borrowed with Izzy is now broken :( Thanks for the giveaway chance!

  59. I blogged and linked up about Crayola!

  60. Laura says:

    Is is weird that reading about pumping made my milk let down? Was that too personal? :-) A new pump would make it (a little) easier to leave my squishy new punkin with family for a night out with my hubby.

  61. Thanks for the opportunity!

  62. Taralyn Parker says:

    I would love a new pump! I am having a little boy in July and definitely need one! It was a lifesaver with number one!

  63. I am also due in 6 weeks with my second child. An electric pump would definitely come in handy when I go back to work.

  64. haley says:

    I am due in December and planning to breast feed. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  65. Due in November. My last breast pump got dropped and broke. Would love to win this!

  66. My daughter is expecting this Nov. & she would love to have a breast pump… I’d love to be able to give this one to her.
    :)

  67. Cheryl says:

    What a cool contest! :-)

  68. katie k says:

    I would love to win! I will be needing one in the near future.

  69. I would love a pump! I pumped with my first because I had to be working part-time. I was not a fan of the pumping, so with my second I never pumped a drop. Now my 3rd is 6 months old and I’m thinking it would be convenient to leave a bottle for her sometimes. So, here’s hoping!

  70. Magali says:

    I’m about to have my first baby and we don’t have a pump yet so it would be nice if we win!!! :)

  71. This is such a fabulous giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win! We are trying to plan ahead and this would be a great start.

  72. My sister-in-law needs a breast pump. I wish I win this giveaway. Thanks.
