Pump On the Go with Kaylaa Bags Breast Pump Bags #Review + Breast Pump Bag #Giveaway

Breast Pump Bag I recieved from Kaylaa designs.

Last month, I returned to work part time as a nurse.  This was after spending 3 blissful (and exhausting, and amazing, and challenging, and surreal) months with my new baby girl.  I have been blessed to be able to exclusively breastfeed my sweet girl and it has been amazing to watch her grow so much from what my body provides for her! As I returned to work, I knew that we would face some new challenges on our breastfeeding journey. Being away from my daughter meant I would have to pump and provide bottles for her sitter…

I developed a healthy dose of what I like to call “pump anxiety”…
Will I be able to pump enough?

Will she consistently take a bottle?

Will my supply tank being away from her?

How will someone as unorganized as me keep up with transporting pump parts and bottles here there and everywhere?

I am happy to report that after a month of being back at work, I have been able to provide enough milk for my baby girl to be at the sitter’s 2 days a week, just pumping while at work.  If you don’t already know, there are laws protecting breastfeeding moms all over the country.  Your employer must provide enough time, and a private space (this space cannot be a bathroom) for you to pump as often as necessary for up to a year after your baby is born! It’s not necessarily paid breaks, but it is a protection afforded so you can continue to provide the best for your babe, even if you must return to work!

This was a relief to me, and thankfully my employer has been very supportive of my needing to pump!  Another thing that has helped me in this new pumping journey is this great bag that was provided to me by Kaylaa Bags. They sent me their premium breast pump bag free of charge for my honest review of the product.

I was very excited about the opportunity to work with Kaylaa Bags on this product review.  I can tell that they are really trying to help out breastfeeding moms! They have a blog on their website with tips and stories to help inspire us mommas!  They have even made this great infographic, detailing breastmilk storage guidelines!

  Check out their website to view the beautiful options for their premium breast pump bag.  I was sent the Rosy weekend design for review, which was perfect since I am a big fan of all things orange here in vol country!

I received the bag very quickly and was so excited to open it up.  It was packaged very carefully and the bag, as well as the detachable strap was wrapped carefully to ensure they were protected on their way to me. 


Features of the Premium Breast Pump Bag
The features are detailed on the web site and include:
·         Fit most portable breast pumps, including Medela Pump in Style, Freestyle; Spectra S1, S2; Lancinoh; Ameda Purely Yours, and many more

·         Easy to clean high-density premium nylon for high durability

·         Dual water and spill resistant, insulated pockets that can keep milks cold up to six hours with ices packs.

·         Fits your breast pump, plus every pumping necessities you will need

·         Collapsible pump pockets for even more space when needed

·         Breast Pump Bag dimensions: 15.8 x 15.8 x 7.9 inches

The bag is very high quality and beautiful with the gold zipper accents.  It easily holds everything that I need to transport to and from work.  I have never been much of a bag carrier, but with everything that I must tote back and forth these days, this bag has been a life saver!  My favorite feature is definitely the insulated pockets.  One side perfectly stores my pump and the other side can be packed with ice packs for transporting the milk that I pump!
 
What's in my bag?:
My Kaylaa pump bag can hold everything I need for work and pumping/storing breastmilk for my little one!

The other beautiful design on their site is a classic black and white pump bag called “Luxury Stripe”.

These beautiful bags are definitely a way to “Pump in Style” if you must return to work after having a baby!  They are high quality, with classic style options, and are definitely big enough to transport anything and everything you might need!  You could even use this bag as your diaper bag when you are with baby! I would say that this bag would be extremely useful for all moms, whether you are a working mom, exclusively pumping mom, or any kind of mom on the go (which, I don’t know of any mom’s that aren’t on the go!)!

  2. I was given a pump, but it didn't include a bag so it would be super helpful for me to have something to transfer the pump and all the other accessories in it.

    1. I got my pump for free through insurance! So even if I hadn't received this bag for free, I could have justified the price! It's so useful and great quality! I'm looking forward to using it when we go on vacation in a couple of months!
