You need Happymami

The only bottle custom-designed
by each mother for her baby

Why Happymami?

We are moms and midwives have gone through this stage of returning to work, and science warns us, 50% of babies who use a generic bottle, lose their breastfeeding.

PROBLEMS OF USING A GENERIC BOTTLE:
As the generic bottle is totally different from your breast, your baby may suffer from the nipple confusion factor of the newborn, losing your breastfeeding.

Also, if you use a generic bottle other than your breast, there is a high probability that your baby will reject the bottle. And it’s hard going to work and knowing that your baby isn’t eating!

THE SOLUTION:
We decided to create a real solution to the maternal return to work with our Happymami project. The only custom-designed bottle!

  • Increases your baby’s bottle acceptance rate
  • Prevent the confounding factor for your baby
  • Protect your breastfeeding
  • Back to work with peace of mind

Back to work tips

And after designing your bottle, we leave you with some back to work and breastfeeding tips, which will be of great help for your return to work.

If you are breastfeeding your baby and need to return to work, clinical guidelines recommend that you start pumping two to four weeks before returning to work to familiarize yourself with the pump and the pumping process.

When you return to work, you will need to express your milk several times during the time you are separated from your baby. This breast pumping will allow you to maintain your milk production and provide your baby with the expressed milk while you are separated, remember to use a custom designed Happymami bottle and not a generic one, this way you prevent your baby from the confusion factor and protect your breastfeeding.

Roughly speaking, it will be sufficient to express breast milk on a schedule similar to your baby’s usual feeding schedule. Which for most moms means expressing breast milk two or three times over the course of 8 hours.

It is true that it can be challenging to find the time and space to express breast milk. Especially for people who do not have a private office. So you should discuss your private space needs with the person in charge before returning to work. In addition, you may find it helpful to talk to coworkers who have gone through the same thing.

If you need to pump either partially or exclusively, it is important to make sure that you continue to produce enough milk for your baby over time. So it will be useful for your progress to have a pumping log to keep track of the number of times and volume of breast milk expressed. Records are available both in written form and in smartphone apps, such as the My NICU Baby app.

If in your particular case you express breast milk to exclusively feed your baby. You should aim for a milk volume between 600 ml and 720 ml per day by the end of your baby’s second week of life. For a premature baby we will need a little less than the previous volume, but as your baby grows his needs will be greater. Here’s how to estimate a baby’s milk needs

To help your body increase breast milk production, one way you can do this is by “hand expression”. To do this, massage both breasts before starting to express breast milk. And then express milk from both breasts at the same time, continuing to massage and compress the breasts during expression as much as possible.

You can use a special bra or other breast pumps with a hands-free option, which will make this task easier. And once the breast milk flow decreases to drops, we stop the pump and continue massaging the breasts. So we will finish the expression by using our hands to get the breast milk into the container or by using the electric breast pump in massage mode (if you have this option) to empty the breasts completely.

Breast milk can be stored in glass jars, plastic jars or plastic bags. It is interesting to know that the recommendation for its best storage and use is to do it in small quantities, between 30 ml to 120 ml. In this way, we will use the amount that the baby wants to consume, avoiding wasting as much breast milk as possible.

That’s why on our website, we have a section of products recommended by our midwives, where you will discover the best choice of container to store your breast milk, and with the best offer. Do not hesitate if you have in mind to get access to milk and take a look at it.

Must be labeled with permanent ink and a waterproof label. The date of breast milk expression must be indicated on this label. Thus, you will be able to use the oldest milk first. If your baby is in the hospital, some hospitals have different breast milk storage policies. Consult with your pediatrician or nursing team to do this properly.

For healthy babies at home, this breast milk can be safely stored in different ways:

  • At room temperature (approximately 25 to 27ºC) it keeps up to four hours.
  • In an insulated cooler with ice packs, lasting up to 24 hours if necessary.
  • In a refrigerator, the shelf life is 3 to 5 days. (Studies have shown that it has been safely stored for up to 8 days if collected very cleanly)
  • In freezer up to 12 months. Thawed breast milk can be safely stored in a standard refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
    • Breast milk that has been frozen and then thawed should not be refrozen.

Yes, it is possible to mix milk from different extractions on the same day. In addition, breast milk should be cooled in the refrigerator before combining, to mix it at the same temperature, and it is not recommended to mix milk expressed on different days.

Note that if you have warm or cold breast milk from the refrigerator, it should not be added to frozen milk. And we prioritize using the oldest milk first.

Before you start, remember that it is not recommended to heating breast milk in microwave ovens. The heating fast heating or the microwave negatively affect the immunological and nutritional properties of breast milk. breast milkFurthermore, microwaving microwaves heat breast milk unevenly milk unevenly, which could burn the baby’s mouth. baby’s mouth.

Why use a custom-designed Happymami bottle and not a generic bottle? Keep in mind that using a generic bottle to offer breast milk to your baby will cause your baby to have a nipple nipple confusion factor, being 50 times more likely to lose his or her breastfeeding, compared to your Happymami.

In addition, to enhance the Happymami bottle experience, here are some recommendations on how to give breast milk in a bottle:

  • Position your baby as upright as possible.
  • Caress your baby’s mouth with the teat of the bottle and when he opens his mouth we introduce the bottle.
  • Tilt the bottle upwards so that the nipple is partially filled with milk, and let your baby suckle for a few minutes (Do not put the bottle horizontally, since if there is little milk, the nipple will not empty and when your baby sucks, milk will not fall out and this will be an unpleasant experience for your baby).
  • When your baby takes breaks, tilt the bottle down to empty the nipple.
  • Repeat this process until your baby shows signs of fullness.

A bottle feeding should last at least 10 to 15 minutes, just like breastfeeding.

If there is any milk left in the bottle after feeding Happymami, you can use it within two hours. This is because once your baby starts drinking the expressed breast milk in his bottle. It produces some bacterial contamination through its own mouth.

It is true that the length of time it can be kept at room temperature, once the baby has fed from the bottle and has left traces, would theoretically depend on the initial bacterial load of that expressed breast milk, in addition to other factors such as the time it has been thawed and the ambient temperature.

Although there are no studies to make recommendations in this regard, and based on the current available evidence, the recommendation is to discard the remaining milk from the bottle within 2 hours after the baby has finished feeding.

*This information does not replace the need for assessment by a professional expert in the field, they are general recommendations based on evidence, but each case is particular and needs a comprehensive assessment by qualified personnel.

[B] Escogemos el flujo según la edad del bebé.

Recuerda que si vas a usar cereales, tienen una densidad mayor a la leche líquida, por eso tenemos disponible un flujo exclusivo para cereales y/o papillas

[LM] Existen corrientes de usar un flujo menor correspondiente a la edad del bebé.

Con Happymami no hace falta, nosotras para desarrollar nuestros Happymamis estudiamos la lactancia materna en su conjunto. La eyección de leche materna, el flujo de salida en cada etapa, la succión del bebé, las necesidades del bebé…. Y a partir de ahí desarrollamos nuestros flujos.

Entonces si tú tienes un bebé de 4 meses y le pones un flujo para bebés de 2 meses, lo que probablemente tenga más riesgo es que tu bebé rechace el biberón.

Por eso nuestra recomendación es que cojas el flujo que le corresponde por edad, y sigas las pautas que te daremos al realizar tu compra para que tu bebé coja el biberón sin afectar a tu lactancia materna.

[B] Si tu bebé sufre muchos cólicos necesitamos un biberón con un sellado total, que corresponde a la inclinación pronunciada. Por el contrario, usaremos una inclinación media, para casos aislados de cólicos. Y una inclinación suave en casos especiales indicados por nuestras matronas.

[LM] Puedes ponerte de perfil y observarte el pecho.

  • ¿Tienes un pecho totalmente plano? cogemos inclinación suave.
  • Si acaba totalmente en punta, escoge inclinación pronunciada.
  • O si más bien es redondito, inclinación media.

Si tienes dudas entre cualquier forma y redondeado, nuestro consejo es que cojas la inclinación media que corresponde al redondeado.

[Biberón exclusivamente] Si es el primer biberón que vas a usar desde el nacimiento, nuestra recomendación es que escojas un pezón medio. Por otra parte, si tu bebé ha usado ya otros biberones y los rechaza, o si al usar el chupete le genera muchos ascos y arcadas a tu bebé escogeremos pezón pequeño.
