Hobo Mama Giveaway: Simplisse breast pump — plus breastfeeding accessories ($116 value)! {5.12}

This giveaway is now closed. View the winner here! Thank you all so much for entering!

I'm sorry to suspend this giveaway, but it's come to my attention that Simplisse might be affiliated with a company I cannot support due to violations of the World Health Organization's code with respect to advertising breast milk substitutes and feeding instruments.

I have tried to be professional and courteous and have been in contact with the company over this, but it has now been over a week since Simplisse last responded to my inquiries. I will post more when I find out further information. Till then, I'm closing the comments.

So that this has not been a waste of my lovely entrants' time, if the giveaway ends early, I will select a winner from among those of you who have already entered. If any of you who have entered wish to opt out of the contest in light of this new information, please contact me: mail {at} HoboMama.com. Please note that the issue is not with the quality of the products reviewed in this giveaway but with the advertising practices of a second (bottle) company that may or may not be related to Simplisse.

I apologize for the inconvenience and confusion, and I'll let you know when I find out more.

I love that this is one of the breast pumps that has direct bottles. I don't think I'm a fan of the ones with baggies. Although I am pregnant with my first and so I have not breastfed yet, I do think this is easier!

I love that this pump emulates the baby's sucking movements and doesn't use "suck and release" like most pumps - sounds great!!

Love how they state they designed their products for moms to give milk to the babies for the longest amount of time possible - it was a great story!

I love that the Manual Breastfeeding Companion breastpump mimics baby feeding more than the suck & release pumps. I would looooooove a better option than my current pump!

I love that Simplisse was developed through a partnership between lactation consultants and moms. What better designer of a product than someone who uses it!

I like that it's gentle. I'm adopting so I'll be inducing my milk by pump and I'm already very tender so I'd love to try this.

I like how it mimics the baby and doesn't use the usual sucking motion that most breast pumps do.

Melissa O. said...

I too use a manual breast pump and I would really love to win this! The thing that caught my attention is how this pump naturally elicits milk expression, doesn’t extract milk like traditional breast pumps

Melissa O. said...

The Simplisse line was developed through a partnership between industry-leading lactation consultants and moms which is really great. It would have to be better than traditional pumps!

Melissa O. said...

I love that they have Pump Cleaning wipes! How convenient!
