Just in case you missed it on your socials, Chrissy Teigen shared memories of her Haakaa Breast Pump on instagram just in time for #worldbreastfeedingweek. It’s not the first time Chrissy has been spotted with a Haakaa. In a post that quickly went viral, husband John Legend shared Chrissy pumping on the go while on the way to a Father’s Day dinner back in 2018.
“I know it's Father's Day and all but my wife is pretty awesome. She's taking me to dinner but still on mommy duty.”
Now Chrissy has shared her memories of using her Haakaa and we are loving it!
And that’s not all we love about the Chrissy. Her ‘take no BS’ approach to motherhood (and life in general) has made her one of THE Instagram accounts to follow (her 25+ million followers is proof of that!)

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a bonafide superstar or an everyday mama who just wishes they could enjoy their coffee hot for once, when your toddler hands you a doll to breastfeed, you breastfeed the doll.
Spilt breastmilk is no laughing matter. Chrissy, who was candid about her struggles with her supply, was every breastfeeding mum when she tweeted about spilling her pumped milk stash.. and trying to recover that liquid gold using a variety of household appliances!
Ah mummy-shamers. It doesn’t seem to matter who you are, they’ll find you. While Chrissy has borne the brunt of many, MANY ‘helpful’ comments about her parenting, one of our favourite’s clap-backs was a recent one, when she dared to give her daughter Luna, a pedicure. A handful of followers were quick to point out the ‘harmful chemicals’ that Chrissy was exposing her daughter to, via the medium of a manicure. Not one to take it lying down, Chrissy responded with the world’s best tweet.
There’s no doubt about it, kids can be ruthless and motherhood can be TOUGH, no matter WHO you are. Which is why we love it when Chrissy shares her #mumlife struggles, like in this particular tweet.
Many, many women have stretchmarks, including it seems, CT. Who shared this shot with a simple ‘whatever’ caption. ‘Whatever’ indeed!

We love the LaVie range of products here at Milkbar. Designed in collaboration with breastfeeding experts, the LaVie range of products were created to help make your breastfeeding journey that little bit easier.
Many mamas may be familiar with the original LaVie Lactation massager, that nifty tool that uses gentle vibration to stimulate milk flow and break down blocks and sore spots but the LaVie range doesn't actually stop there! There are two other products that can be super handy for the breastfeeding and pumping mum.
Let's take a look at the range to help work out which one might suit you best.
There are many reasons why a mama may sometimes need to supplement her baby with expressed breast milk or formula.
While giving this little bit extra via a bottle is usually what we think of first, a Supplemental Nursing System or SNS can be a super handy option for supplementing mamas who want to avoid nipple confusion and keep baby at the breast full time.
