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.
The LaVie Lactation Massager Roller is the ideal alternative to manually massaging your boobs (which can get SUPER tiring!)
"I came home from hospital with sore lumpy breasts and now I use this massage roller before feeds and its amazing, gets all the lumps out and helps with my milk supply." Peta Martin
"Super easy and comfortable to use as well as effective! Love it." Jasmine
The original block busting lactation tool! The LaVie Lactation Massager is probably the most recognised of the LaVie range. It's the ultimate block busting, milk flow boosting, engorgement relieving tool.
" Absolutely love the LaVie massager! I end up pumping an extra 60ml a day! Can not fault it at all! Sarah Bennett
"It’s a great little device that does wonders for helping the milk flow and get’s into the pockets to release the build up! Love it." Natalie Clarke
"I had sore lumps on both sides, instantly using this massager just once; it relieved my pain. Highly recommend!" Angela Donisi
The LaVie Warming Lactation Massager is the first milk expression tool that combines continuous warmth and vibration to improve milk flow, relieve pain, and save time. Similar to the original LaVie, the warming lactation massager has the addition of two heat modes than can be used alone or alongside one of the multiple massage modes.
" I absolutely love these. I use these while I do a pumping session and they help a lot with the flow and make it a lot easier with their dual massaging and heat function." Michelle Thwaites
"I bought these as I get vasospasm (white nipple) with breastfeeding and I need to keep my breasts warm.These help so much when my milk comes in and a spasm is happening. The vibration and heat relieve the pain straight away. Having two different heat and vibration levels helps so I can adjust depending on how I'm feeling and not having to reheat anything. They do have a safety switch off so you don't burn yourself." Hannah Kuchel

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.
