STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Tommee Tippee, the brand known for the most breast-like nipple, ever, today announced a new suite of breastfeeding products, cementing its position as the ultimate feeding solution for moms. The Made for Me product line is designed for mom's comfort and helps ease the transition from breast to bottle and back again, featuring everything she'll need to breastfeed, including innovative electric and manual pumps, nipple cream and travel storage bags. For National Breastfeeding Month, Tommee Tippee is offering a month's worth of content and expert resources for mom and giveaways from beloved mom brands and influencers.
"As moms ourselves, we know that every breastfeeding journey is different, whether it's painful, exhausting, rewarding or all of the above. Our personal experiences as moms and years of expertise in designing products, result in a collection that is truly made for mom, providing the ultimate solution for her breastfeeding gripes," said Brooke Koller-Faloon, Head of Marketing for Tommee Tippee North America. "Made with comfort, customization and convenience in mind, these breastfeeding products will make mom's feeding journey as easy as possible."
SURVEY CONFIRMS EVERY BREASTFEEDING JOURNEY IS DIFFERENT Just in time for National Breastfeeding Month, results from Tommee Tippee's recent survey1 reveal the realities of breastfeeding. With responses as varied as every woman's feeding journey, moms called breastfeeding time consuming, draining and rewarding. Not surprising to any mom, many wouldn't trade the experience if they could, while others would. On advice for breastfeeding mamas-to-be: It won't be easy and ultimately it is ok if you don't want to or can't breastfeed.
Key survey findings include:
While nearly 37% of respondents find that breastfeeding is "the ultimate connection," another 27% find it "emotionally draining."
The two biggest breastfeeding gripes include needing to be accessible to baby 24/7 (26%) and struggling to get baby to latch (24%).
52% wish they had someone to guide them through the process of breastfeeding and pumping and nearly 40% of moms wish they knew what a huge time commitment it would be before becoming a mom.
When asked who they would give breastfeeding duties to if they could, nearly 50% said their partner, 41% said no one and 9% said anyone else.
51% said their feedback for a breastfeeding mama-to-be would be that it's ok if breastfeeding doesn't work for you and it's ok if you don't want to do it.
A MONTH OF EXPERT CONTENT AND GIVEAWAYS Tommee Tippee kicks off a month of content made for breastfeeding moms, including sessions led by experts specializing in new motherhood and feeding, to support moms physically and emotionally through their breastfeeding journey.
