Are you in the market for a breast pump? Have you heard of the Hygeia Enjoye-LBI? Now available at SmartMomma, the brand Hygeia is named after the Greek Goddess of health and wellness because breast milk brings health and wellness to moms and babies. The only pump brand endorsed by La Leche League International, all of its personal-use electric breast pumps are hospital-grade performance.
Having been a pumping and working mom myself, I was excited to learn that all Hyegia breast pumps have a closed system, meaning they can be rented and shared between mothers who use their own pumping sets. There is a barrier filter to prevent any cross-contamination between mothers, so you can ethically sell your pump to another new mom when you no longer need it, knowing you are not risking sharing any viruses or other germs with other moms and babies.
Another advantage of the closed system is that the flexibility of reuse allows Hygeia to be one of the “greenest” pumps on the market. Once you no longer need your pump and if you do not wish to sell it or share it with another person, you can return it to Hygeia for recycling or reuse.
A significant selling point to me is that Hygeia is WHO compliant. It supports the World Health Organization’s code on marketing of breast milk substitutes by not including pictures of babies on its packaging and not risking implying that a mother’s goal should be to pump milk over directly breastfeeding her baby. Hygeia makes it clear that breastfeeding is best for mother and baby and that the primary use of a breast pump is for when mother and baby are separated.
I frequently worry about what chemicals are exposed to my children, and I was glad to see that all Hygeia pump parts that come in contact with breast milk are BPA and DEHP-free! No dangerous chemicals will be seeping into your pumped liquid gold!
The Hygeia Enjoye-LBI and all of its accessories are now available at SmartMomma! If you’re planning to return to work after the birth of your baby, this is definitely one of the best pumps to consider. If I were shopping for a pump today, this would definitely be my choice!
