As a special preview of the LA Baby Show, coming up on the weekend of November 5-6, we have interviewed or profiled many of the Show’s vendors and participants. You can read all about them on this Show blog, but of course the real fun is experiencing the Baby Show in person.
Tickets to the Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual, and can be purchased here.
Breastfeeding has many health benefits! Studies have shown that breastfeeding may reduce the risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and uterine cancer. It reduces the risk of Type 2 diabetes, and can sometimes alleviate postpartum depression. Founded by a nursing mother in 1984, Lansinoh knows the ins and outs of breastfeeding.
We caught up with the Lansinoh team to learn more.
For someone unfamiliar with Lansinoh, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Lansinoh was founded by a breastfeeding mom over 30 years ago and is committed to helping moms meet their breastfeeding goals. Famous for its award-winning cornerstone product, HPA Lanolin nipple cream, Lansinoh has expanded its product offering to include a full range of solutions for breastfeeding and pumping moms. These products include breast and nipple therapies, breast pumps, breast milk storage products, and breast milk feeding bottles
Can you tell us a little bit about the history of the company? How has it evolved since the company started?
Lansinoh was founded by Rasheda Hagen in 1984. Her goal was to introduce a product that helps moms and babies breastfeed, and this remains at the core of Lansinoh’s activities today. The company is committed to advocating for breastfeeding and to supporting women with educational tools and helpful products so every mom can breastfeed for as long as she chooses. Lansinoh products are available in more than 60 countries today.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from Lansinoh?
Lansinoh Laboratories, a global leader in breastfeeding products and accessories, adds to its legacy of first-to-market innovation by launching the Lansinoh Smartpump, a double electric breast pump designed for today’s busy mom. The new Smartpump is the first pump on the market to incorporate Bluetooth technology that allows for seamless pairing between the pump and a new, free Lansinoh Baby app.
The Smartpump syncs to the Lansinoh Baby app, and records the date, time, and duration of each pumping session. Using the app, moms also can record the amount of breastmilk pumped per session, making tracking and record keeping much more simple and convenient.
Intuitively designed and easy to use, the app also can track breastfeeding and bottle-feeding sessions, diaper changes, and baby’s growth, making it a one-stop resource for families. Users can easily view their baby’s feeding history and other trends on charts. Logs of these activities can be downloaded and shared with healthcare providers.
Finally, the app contains numerous tips and links to resources, so that moms have information, advice, encouragement, and more at their fingertips. In addition to smartphone integration, the Smartpump offers outstanding pump performance for customizable and efficient pumping sessions. Lansinoh is the only pump brand with three pumping styles and eight adjustable suction levels, allowing each user to select the setting that most closely mimics her baby’s natural feeding pattern.
The Smartpump also features a hygienic closed-system design, an important safety feature that prevents mold and bacteria growth in the pump motor and tubing, keeping expressed breastmilk pure. These features, Bluetooth connectivity, and the pump’s compact size and quiet motor make it an all-in-one solution for pumping moms.
What sets Lansinoh apart from other breastfeeding products on the market?
Lansinoh is deeply committed to supporting breastfeeding and pumping moms, not just with high quality and safe products, but also by offering the information and tools moms need to provide them with confidence, protection, and comfort to help them navigate through their journey and help preserve the bond. As breastfeeding educators and parents ourselves, we strive to do all we can to help moms and give them the encouragement and support they need.
What can parents expect to see from Lansinoh at the LA Baby Show?
We are very excited to be returning to the LA Baby Show and are looking forward to meeting moms, moms-to-be, and their partners, families, and friends! Attendees can stop by and ask our breastfeeding experts for advice while exploring our product line. Lansinoh is also the proud sponsor of the breastfeeding and pumping lounge.
