Hygeia Enjoye Breast Pump Giveaway



Hygeia is not paying me for this post and the pump is from my own hard earned money. Words are all my own. I simply love Hygeia. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Now granted it is used but Hygeia is multi user so totally safe to share. Also my pump has a little less than a year on the warranty but hey its a warranty, I do not know any other company gives a 3 year warranty on their pumps.

Now the start of Ava & my breastfeeding relationship was NOT pretty or heartwarming but Hygeia changed that. I had even used a hospital grade pump prior to the Hygeia Enjoye and I could NOT tell the difference, yes the Enjoye is just as good as the hospital grade pump I used. Ava would not nurse from my right side for the first 3 months of her life. The Hygeia Enjoye kept my supply on that side up & I was able to produce just as much as my left side. It also helped me pump for her when I returned to work & had pumped enough for a donor baby.

I picked Hygeia for many reasons but here are a few

  • WHO-code compliant!!
  • Warranty is transferable to new owner
  • They have a recycling program
  • Closed system so can have multi users (safe to share & no yucky mold issues)
  • Customer Service. I've worked in customer service & could never even attain the awesome level of service that Hygeia does. They are amazing specifically Kate Gulbransen who can be found on twitter as @HygeiaKate they have some great info at @HygeiaBaby also.
The only downside? The pump I bought that I'm offering to you does not have the internal battery so you must have access to a outlet. Now this was not a real issue once I bought a pumping bra which I have & can send with the pump if you want it. Multitasking for the win!! Again Hygeia has not offered me any money or items but they are offering the winner of this giveaway their very own (new) accessory kit. 

You can buy it here at Hygeia

I am sad my & Ava's breastfeeding relationship ended the way it did after the accident and this is like the final key in my mental healing of that. Thank you my friends for following our story.
Enjoy Enjoye

  1. I would LOVE this! I have a rather popular brand pump and I hate it! Doesn't work well for me. I've heard wonderful things about the Enjoye so it would be great to win!

  2. This pump could be a life saver for me. I'm currently pumping for my 10 week old baby boy, who was born at 35 weeks and spent 2 weeks in the NICU. I spent every single day in the NICU pumping all day until he could attempt to breastfeed. Even when i went home at night, my husband drove in the middle of the night to drop off more milk so we could avoid formula. He finally got to come home, and maintained/gained a LITTLE weight. We continued to see an LC, but as my pumping output with my not-so-great pump decreased, and his nursing didn't improve, nor did his weight, he finally dropped off the charts and I was told by my LC if i couldn't pump enough milk, i HAD to give formula. I'm currently doing a few bottles a day, of half pumped milk, half formula, and still breastfeeding as much as possible. If i can get my supply and pumping output to increase, we could give only breastmilk and stop the formula, until he is strong enough to hopefully one day get most of his milk from nursing on his own.

    Our story is far from over, I hope. We're determined to make it. :)

  3. I'm still breastfeeding my almost 2 year old but if I won this I'd give it to my friend who is due Christmas Day. Out of my 20 some friends who have given birth only 1 made it past few weeks breastfeeding and she went to 9 months. This pregnant friend says she's dedicated to breastfeeding but she's a teacher so I know even without problems its tough to pump while working. But if she has issues I had like undiagnosed until 10 months lip tie or having exclusively pump for 1st 3 months just because it's not working then it's easy to give up before even getting established. A great pump like I've researched this is would be hugely beneficial.

  8. I vote for Kim/@MamaDaisiey, I would love to see her win this pump. She is such a strong and courageous mother to two sweet little boys who have been breastfed with love and determination through hard times (tongue tie, preemies, etc,) A good pump could go a long way.

  19. I am voting for Kim/@MamaDaisiey. I really hope she will win this pump. As a new mother, also with little breastmilk supply, and supplementing with formula, I truly feel for her determination to exclusively breastfeed her new born son. She has already tried EVERYTHING that was humanly possible, with the resources she has to increase her milk output. If this pump can be that last one thing that could help her 'overthrow' formula and have enough milk for her little one, it would be a reward for all those efforts she has already put in.

  22. Backstory my cousin who is the same age as me and also my best friend gave birth to her son at age 16 she breastfed him till he was 3. She also managed to do this while finishing high school with only a hand pump the hospital gave her. Fast forward 12 years later and I had my son and breastfed my son and it was seeing her do that helped me succeed. Imagine hand pumping in the bathroom between classes while other girls were smoking..eeww the cafeteria ladies let her keep her milk in the school fridges. That done it for me. I would love her to have a hygeia for her second child due in july! And since hygeias can be shared i could use it when i decide to have another one. Thank you

  24. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely
    broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  25. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
