At the Pigeon Breastfeeding Talk + Breastfeeding Rooms Launch at HSBC Centre

Posted on - in Baby, Events

When I was sent an invitation to the Pigeon Breastfeeding Talk and unveiling of the Pigeon Breastfeeding Rooms at HSBC Centre in BGC by Ritz of Richwell Philippines, I didn’t think twice of accepting it. Primary reason is that it features a topic that I can relate to: breastfeeding. I gave birth to a baby girl last December, and though I must admit I mix-feed her, I wanted to learn more about breastfeeding.

So last Saturday, I went to the venue and got excited to learn about the basics of breastfeeding and how to overcome the challenges that come with it.

It’s nice to know that Pigeon truly understands the needs of a new mom, especially when it comes to feeding their child. They have products that address every concern, from bottles to breast pumps to breast care accessories to cleansers and sterilizers.

All these breast pumps from Pigeon come with the Comfort ProperFit™ soft silicone cushions for a comfortable fit and more efficient pumping. These also come in 2 different sizes to fit every breast size, forming an airtight seal to reduce milk spills and spoilage. And these also feature a 2-Phase Technology, the stimulation and expression modes that can be adjusted, depending on the mom’s preferred level.

Pigeon Breastfeeding Accessories
Pigeon also has accessories like the Silicone Nipple Shield (for moms with cracked nipples), Nipple Puller (for inverted nipples), Nipple Care Cream, and Breast Care Gel, as well as Breastmilk Storage Bags and Bottles.

For moms on the go, there’s Pigeon’s Breast Pads, for protection against leaks and stains

And to help solve breastfeeding woes, Pigeon organized the Breastfeeding Talk that targeted pregnant women and new moms.

The blogger attendees were also able to witness the launch of the Pigeon Breastfeeding Stations in 2 floors of HSBC Centre.

It’s so great that Pigeon is promoting breastfeeding not only through their products but also by creating avenues that help moms continue their breastfeeding journey even while at work. I sure hope they build Breastfeeding Stations in more offices to encourage more working moms not to give up on breastfeeding and expressing their breastmilk.

Going to this event really opened my eyes about breastfeeding and the benefits it gives to babies. I’m actually inspired to continue giving my daughter breastmilk. Hopefully more breastmilk than formula.

Thanks to Pigeon and Richwell Philippines for inviting me to this wonderful event. 🙂
