Hi Andi! Thank you for giving me the chance to participate and win the Medela Freestyle. I was and still am really excited upon hearing the good news. It’s great to know people at Mamaknowsbreast and Medela care about women and their needs as they venture into motherhood. As a reader from Malaysia, I believe your quest in spreading knowledge on the importance of breastfeeding is truly inspiring! I’m sure you’ve touched the hearts of women all around the world. Keep up the great work! Thank you and God bless!
UPDATED: Thank you to everyone who left a comment for a chance to win a Medela Freestyle Pump. I loved reading what you had to say! There really is no shortage to pumping stories! And now…drum roll… the winner is Hope. Congratulations! Here’s her comment:
I’m due this coming October and I’ve been reading up on how to provide the best for my baby. My mom exclusively breastfed my brothers and sisters and I, and I’d love to do the same for my baby. The only difference is that my mom didn’t have to go to work, whereas I do. So, I’ve been reading up on breast pumps and I’ve found that Medela is the best in the market! But it’s quite pricey and I don’t know if I can afford it. That’s why I was ecstatic when I found this contest. It’s like a blessing in disguise. A lot of great information and the chance to win a Medela Freestyle Breastpump. It’s the most practical solution because it’s lightweight and compact, yet has everything I would need to include breast pumping in my daily schedule. I’ve also been reading on bpa-free bottles and to know Medela has taken this into account just gives me more confidence in the name itself. I really hope to win so that I can always provide the best for my baby. PS: During our last checkup, we found out our baby’s a boy!

BACK TO THE ORIGINAL POST:
Ok, all you pumping mamas…here it is. The latest and greatest pump from our friends at Medela. The Freestyle is Medela’s first hands-free, double-electric pump. Just attach it to your bra and get back to your emailing and phone calls. It’s really small, light-weight and best of all, the Medela bottles are BPA free.
Medela is giving away this pump. So if you’d like a chance to win, leave a comment answering this question: What is your best pumping story? And if you haven’t had a baby yet, why do you need this pump? (The deadline to enter is July 1, 2008).
