VISTA, Calif., May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hygeia is proud to announce that the EnJoye™ LBI breastpump has been awarded the PTPA Winner's Seal of Approval. PTPA Media has North America's largest volunteer parent testing community, with over 40,000 parents.
The Hygeia EnJoye™ LBI, a professional-grade breastpump designed for long-term and frequent pumping, was selected among many entries from across North America competing to earn the PTPA™ Seal. The EnJoye™ LBI features internal rechargeable batteries that last for up to four hours and a unique C.A.R.E. recording button that allows a mom to play back the sounds of her baby. Hygeia breastpumps are designed to be eco-friendly, and can be safely shared by multiple mothers when each has their own personal accessory set. Hygeia also offers a pioneering Environmentally Preferred Product (EPP) Program that allows a mom to recycle her breastpump after she no longer needs to pump.
Because independent parent volunteers evaluate these products in their own homes, PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience - not on commercial considerations. As a result, the PTPA Media Seal has quickly gained recognition as an international leader in certifying consumer products for quality, effectiveness and value.
One PTPA tester who evaluated the EnJoye™ LBI said, "This is by far the BEST breast pump I have ever owned. It is gentle and effective. I have used it at my desk, a ball game, and my house each with amazing results. The record feature comes in handy if you have to do multiple pumps or find let down a challenge!"
Another PTPA parent tester remarked, "Overall I was blown away by this product. I have been telling complete strangers who see me pump about it! I love the fact that it is safe to use by multiple mothers without cross-contamination. It is gentle on my breast and it is always effective in starting the let down process!"
Being honored with the influential PTPA Seal of Approval is a huge achievement for a product geared to families, children or parents. "Our goal at Hygeia is to support breastfeeding moms with the highest quality products, so it's especially gratifying that this accolade is based on direct feedback from nursing moms who've used our pumps," says Decky Goodrich, President of Hygeia.
"At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative products that families can trust," says Sharon Vinderine, CEO and founder of PTPA Media Inc. "When consumers search for our Seal of Approval on product packaging and websites, they are essentially searching for validation from their peers. Their peers will have objectively tested and approved these products based on their performance in a real life environment. That type of resource for families is priceless."
Hygeia, named for the Greek goddess of good health, is committed to creating products and developing services that help ensure positive breastfeeding experiences for mothers. The company is home to the professional-grade EnJoye™ breastpump and the hospital-grade EnDeare™ breastpump. For more information, please visit http://www.HygeiaBaby.com.
