Plugged Ducts – The Unsexy Truth About Breastfeeding

March 23, 2018

Here’s a truth bomb that you won’t hear from most women:

“Breastfeeding is one of the hardest parts of motherhood… and breast-pumping? It sucks. Producing milk is not always easy and extensive pumping to reach sufficient milk output – it’s tedious, time consuming and exhausting…”

Nonetheless, a close look at how motherhood works behind closed doors, confirms that more that 62% of mothers that pump frequently, suffer from such issues. Issues that can be embarrassing, shameful and that mothers only feel comfortable sharing with lactation consultants, close friends and immediate family.

And some of these issues, in addition to impacting mothers on an emotional level, may lead to physical strain as well. When pumping doesn’t happen effectively and milk is not adequately removed, ducts clog. This in turn, leads to swelling and inflammation, which means yet more complications – it can be a vicious cycle. But pumping, like breastfeeding, doesn’t have to be painful and uncomfortable.

Lilu wants to make painful pumping a problem of the past. The Lilu bra automatically massages breasts, allowing women to pump up to 50% more milk, hands-free and in less time. The breast compression ensures nutrient-rich milk is moved outward and that all ducks are emptied, greatly reducing risk of clogged ducts and removing the need for excessive pumping.

Lilu is currently available for pre-sale here and will be available for customers at the end of September 2018. Already pumping? We would love your feedback! Please fill out this form and we’ll get back to you!
