I've breastfed all four of my children for varying lengths of time (and am currently nursing my youngest, who's coming up on 10 months old). I've been fortunate enough to be a stay-at-home mom (or, arguably, a work-from-home mom) this time around, but with my first three I had to return to the outside-the-home workforce early in their lives.
When my third son was born in 2005, I unfortunately had to go back to work when he was just four weeks old. Since I wanted to continue breastfeeding but would be at work a minimum of 45 hours a week, a breast pump was a must. I was able to get a double electric breast pump similar to the one being given away here, and it was GREAT. I could sit at my desk and do paperwork (I was managing a gas station at the time) while simultaneously making sure my baby would have the benefits of breast milk.

The moment that I found out that I was pregnant with my youngest son, I immediately knew that I wanted to breastfeed him. I never worked with my older two children and had no idea what type of breast pump to use. After careful searching, I figured out that I would need a double electric breast pump so that I could pump milk from both breasts at the same time. When I was working I took two 15 minute breaks and used part of my lunch hour to pump. This worked well for me and it was a schedule that was doable with my employer.
Lansinoh and Klout gave me to the opportunity to receive a Signature Pro Double Electric breast pump. The Signature Pro series is designed to mimic your babies natural feeding pattern. It has three custom settings to allow you to adjust the breast pump so that it is comfortable for you. I love that the pump comes with its very own carrying bag, it helps you disguise your breast pump. You can easily fit all of your accessories and pump into the carrying bag. When I was pumping for my youngest son, I always kept a few breast pads and extra accessories in my bag in case I needed them.
The prize package also includes a Lansinoh hands free bra. It is a size S-XL. This is one thing that I wish that I had when I was pumping. You can pump while reading a book or you can continue working if you are lucky enough to have a private office. The four - way layering support system helps secure the pump flanges to maintain a tight seal while the 10" adjustable VELCRO® brand closure panel provides the right fit over time as you lose your baby weight.
