Medela Freestyle Review

this is my first and only pump and i love it so much that i'd think it definitely deserves a review / recommendation from me!! medela freestyle pump review



If you are looking at purchasing an electronic breast pump that costs hundreds of dollars, please please do purchase them early so you can purchase them at the major baby expo fairs and fully maximize your purchase with all the attractive free gifts and lucky dips at expo fairs.
I had wanted to purchase mine in the October baby expo fair, but who knows baby ashlene arrived prematurely at 34 weeks, so we didn't manage to make it to the fair at all and after trying to use the medela swing single pump, i gave up totally, rushed out to kiddy palace during the first week of confinement to get the freestyle. medela freestyle pump review

Initially i was contemplating between freestyle or pump in style since i've heard plenty of positive reviews on how strong the suction is for pump in style, just that it's gona be an eol model soon and the clearance price is at $599, $100 difference from Freestyle retailing at $699 (they are perpetually on promo price).
Since Pump in Style gona be an eol model soon, i'd worry i'll have problems getting parts replaced many years later for our #2 hence i decided to go for Freestyle instead. medela freestyle pump review

The suction power is good in my opinion, as compared to hearing complains from peers about other models such as harmony or electric swing which is super duper loud and takes forever to empty their breasts. It takes me 30 minutes maximum to pump each time medela freestyle pump review


Here's my personal ratings:

suction power: very good 4/5 (maybe not as strong as Pump in style but good enough for me)
Portability: very good 5/5 light weight and easy to carry around
ease of use: very good 5/5 comes with hands free strap which is a life saviour
Sound: very low 5/5 you can hardly hear the pumping sound

Super love the fact that it's battery operated and comes with the hands free strap. So i can pump and walk around the house doing chores or even have my meals while pumping away, even my family members were impressed and amazed by how portable and flexible my pump is.
This is extremely important, before i explored using the battery function, i was confined to one area to do my pumping and i got so bored of detest each pumping session.
Till i discovered the ease of use for the battery, my pumping sessions never felt the same ever again!

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …
