Despite the widely-publicized health benefits of breastfeeding, nearly three out of four moms quit before the recommended six-month period. While the statistic is surprising, the answer why is clear – breastfeeding can be difficult, uncomfortable and frustrating for many moms. I know it was for me with my first child!
To address many breastfeeding issues, Simplisse is introducing a complete new line of “mom-friendly” breastfeeding and breast-care products designed to enhance the experience, comfort and health of breastfeeding moms, including breastfeeding accessories, skin care products and lactation supplements.
The line features the new Simplisse Manual Breastfeeding Companion, the first innovation in breast pump technology in nearly three decades that:
- abandons the “suck-and-release” mechanism found in traditional pumps and utilizes a new technology that mimics a baby’s gentle suckling motion;
- encourages a more comfortable, natural milk flow with the new gentle motion;
- improves the ease and comfort of the breast pumping experience;
- and was developed by a team of lactation consultants working with moms.
Dr. Jimi Francis is a board-certified lactation consultant and Simplisse Clinical Director. She is passionate about helping new moms have the most positive breastfeeding experience possible.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to try some of Simplisse’s new products, including the breast pump. I received the products a few weeks before giving birth and I couldn’t wait to try out the pump! I had a horrible experience with breast pumps with my first child. I had a very low milk supply despite all my efforts to increase it. One of the things I tried, recommended by my lactation consultant, was to pump between feedings. I tried three different pumps… A Medela Manual Breast Pump, a Medela Electric Breastpump and an Evenflo Breast Pump – all with less than positive results. Sure, they all got a little milk out (less than an ounce), but none of them felt right and I hated the whole experience. Hated it.
The Simplisse breast pump is completely different. The entire sensation is different. The breastcup is soft and doesn’t pinch, milk let-down happens easier, and milk flow is constant with their new technology.
I’m also loving Simplisse Disposable Nursing Pads. They are slightly odd when you first put them in your bra and you’re thinking “Are these things for real?” but as soon as they warm up and conform to your breast, they become completely invisible and are the most effective and comfortable nursing pads I’ve ever used. Only $9.99 for a box of 60 pads.
My other favorite product from Simplisse is the Simplisse Nipple Cream. Since this is my second time breastfeeding, I have tried my fair share of nipples cream, salves, ointments, etc. This is absolutely the best one I have ever tried. I struggled with dry, cracked, bleeding nipples for many, many weeks with my first child. Second time around, I had Simplisse Nipple Cream from day one and the discomfort of nursing a brand new baby lasted for a few days. MUCH better than traditional lanolin nipple creams, this one is easily absorbed, safe for baby, and worked fast to relieve discomfort. I highly, highly recommend it if you’re looking for the best nipple cream on the market!
And now, back to the pump!!!!
I highly recommend this pump over any other pump (including electric) because it just works. This is a must-have for any breastfeeding mother!!!!
